While trying to come up with a shower curtain for Izzy’s bathroom makeover, I kept coming up short. Quite literally. I wanted her curtain to be hung higher and all the shower curtains I found wouldn’t work that way. So I decided to make my own using a window curtain. They’re much longer than standard shower curtains and honestly, much cuter.
When looking at options, Izzy and I both pulled this one out at the same time and looked at each other with big ‘ol grins. It was the winner! I had hoped it would be wide enough on it’s own but it wasn’t. Whomp, whomp. But all was not lost! I’ll show you how to take this…
- TWO drapes (I found mine here, and also saw them here)
- Sewing machine
- eyelet kit (found at local craft store)
- shower curtain rings (I used these)
- shower curtain liner
STEP ONE: Pull out your second drape (this is your donor drape) and cut the sides off. I cut 12″ off each side to give me the width I needed. I cut from the sides so that I could keep the finished edges.
STEP TWO: Stitch your new side pieces onto your first curtain panel. I zig zagged the edges to keep it from fraying. (Side note: Ignore the grommets, I realized after I had finished the shower curtain that I failed to get a photo of this step)
STEP THREE: Mark the placement of your eyelets (I used 12), cut the opening, and attach the eyelets according to the package’s directions.
STEP FOUR: Hang that puppy up with a shower curtain liner so it doesn’t get soaked and enjoy!
