A Cute Shower Curtain

A friend of a friend asked me to make a shower curtain and matching towels for her children’s bathroom.  She came over one day and showed me the full size flat sheet that she had bought and asked if I could turn it into a shower curtain.  She had also purchased a matching pillowcase and 2 towels and wanted to see what I could do with those.

Here’s the result:

The full size flat sheet was actually the perfect size to work with! However, if you want to try this idea yourself, I would advise you to make sure that the sheet is squared off and the that the pattern is not off printed.  Most sheets are not squared and you may have to cut too much off trying to square it up.  I added 3/4″ grommets to the top and used the liner to make sure they were lined up.

Here are the towels:

I cut out the fish from the pillowcase and used “wonder under” to adhere them to the towels.  Although you can’t see it in the picture, I stitched around the fish in red thread.  I think they make a nice addition to the shower curtain!

This is an easy and inexpensive way to update a bathroom!
