When you can easily make your own personalized shower curtains that are as special as you are, why settle for shower curtains tailored to someone else's taste and style? It is not as complicated to build your own as you may believe. This can be an amazing way to portray yourself, which is always easier than buying ready-made curtains.
Next, choose a fabric with an image you want or a template. Whether it has a design of some type on your selected cloth, make sure that the pattern repeats at least once. Super-creative feeling? When you've cut the fabric so that your latest curtain doubles as a piece of art, you can only choose the hue you like and make your own style with fabric paint.
You'll want to slit the cloth next. The cloth would have to be cut into two sheets, each sheet being 88 inches each. You ought to be willing to make the hem on both sides to be around 8 inches. Next, take one of the two panels and, lengthwise, break it in half.
Take each of the half panels and pin the right side of the half panel to the full panel's right side. To make the shapes match up for better visual appeal, you may want to be cautious. You're going to need a needle now and a threat.
You ought to stitch the panels together around the jungle edge with a half inch seam allowance now. If you are unfamiliar with what a "selvage edge" is, when it's on the bolt, it's the outer edge of the cloth, most commonly the forest edge is white and typically has some form of writing on it.
You would want the fabric to fold over 1/2 inch on either line, then a second 1/2 inch. To produce the side hems, hem these edges together. Turn the edge under 1 inch, then a second inch, at what is going to be the tip of your shower curtain. Hem it together, and then glance at the bottom of the curtain of the tub. In the bottom line, you'll fold the cloth over twice more, except this time you'll want to fold it 3 inches per time instead of one. Hem this shut and your shower curtain is really close to completion! On the shoulder, give yourself a congratulatory pat!
You can consider sewing weights or magnets into the bottom of your curtain during this sewing step to help keep it from floating easily away from the shower. Only stitch each weight or magnet into a little pocket of its own.
You've got a beautiful shower curtain already, just no way to mount it. This is simply being taken care of. What you need to do, around the top edge of the shower curtain circles, is to install grommets or button holes. Generally speaking, you want to start with around 3 inches in the first hole on either end, then build another hole every six inches, leaving plenty of room between each ring until hung.
