I was able to make a shower curtain and valance for the main bath for only $8.00 !! I wanted lots of color because the walls are white...it's great having the option to use any color for accessories. So I looked in my fabric bin and found this:
This shot shows the true color of the fabric.
I had bought 2 yards @ $2.00 a yard.
I've made shower curtains over the years using sheets, fabric and tablecloths. Fabric is getting harder and harder to find these days ...so many of the chains have closed and the quilt shops are quite expensive. I would usually make buttonholes at the top for the hooks but decided to try an easier way. I added a strip of stiffer fabric I had around to the top to add some stiffness. Then I added 16" pieces of ribbon where each buttonholes would be. (I just stitched it to the top where the straight pins are.)
Ribbon was $2.00....
And voila....quick and easy...
I may never make one any other way!!
I can see a pretty green or blue pattern with ribbon for spring...:)
Then I decided to add a solid stripe to the bottom...one yard @ $2.00 a yard on sale. I used about 16 " of it. That left me plenty for the valance of each fabric.
I used 2 small pressure rods for the layered valance.
then added a little tie up with ribbon!
Found the wall decal at D*llar tree...
Quick and easy!
