It's Curtains For You...Bathroom!
I left the valance selvage raw on the bottom. The window curtain was just an old futon cover that was tearing with age. I had used half of it to make strips for a big circular rag rug in the kitchen. I would use the rug in the bathroom, but it is too big. I made the window curtains first, then used one of the ginghams mom gave me for the shower curtain. The curtain rings are double sided to have one liner (a plain white one from Wal Mart that was 2 dollars) and one curtain together on the same rings. I just ripped strips from the same material as the valance and tied them to the hooks to keep the rings from jumping off the rod and to add accent in the same color family. I only hemmed the top of the gingham, then cut slits to add to the hooks. I left the selvage edges raw and used pinking shears to keep the bottom from unraveling. This way, I still have all that material to use later for another project. I never use the same shower curtain twice.
Sewing is one of my absolute favorite things to do!
