    Shower Curtains

    Hey, I wanted to share pics of the ONLY two shower curtains I've made...for EVER! While sewing the 2nd one, I realized that I have only made the same pattern twice on one other occasion, and I HATE it! I like to do one thing and move on to something new. However, once my stepmother saw mine, she said "could you make one for me" and her birthday was like 3 months away, so this was the perfect non-stress gift.

    They are made of cotton (of course), with raw edge applique. The pattern is so easy, I found it quite boring but since I love fussycutting, that part was kind of fun, although it works on the front heart only.

    Thank you all for sharing your beautiful and inspiring photos of your work, I hope you enjoy mine.

    I think the shower curtain hangers probably came from Bed Bath & Beyond, but I've had them for several years. I used a queen sized fitted bedsheet for the backing and just SID for the quilting.

    By the way, this posting originally began in the quilt photo category - am I wrong in wanting it to STAY THERE???

    be sure to use a plastic shower curtain liner too for the water.

    Did you make buttonholes for the hangers or use grommets? I have been wanting to make one but was not sure how to do the top.

    I have made several shower curtains and I just made buttonholes for the hangers. I thought it would be easier than grommets.

    Both are wonderful and would provide a lot of interest in the bathroom.
