I am learning quickly that blogging is encouraging me to get my projects done. My latest project is one I have been putting off since we moved in. I haven’t shared many sewing projects yet so I decided to finish this one… finally… and share. When we built the house I decided to go with shower curtains rather than glass doors in the kids’ bathrooms. They are easier to clean and I like being able to bring in color with the fabric for the curtains. The only negative to shower curtains is the hardware up top. I know they make lots of cute knobs and rods and all that good stuff but I just assume cover it all… I’m not a huge fan. Here’s what she looked like before…

I decided to make a small valance and put it on a separate rod just above the one that is already hanging. My girls are 5 and 6 so I wanted to do something fun but also something that I can live with. I found a cute remnant at Hancock’s and got to work. These are so simple to make. You can even do them with fabric glue or hot glue if you don’t sew… I won’t go into detailed instructions here but if you want some advice on making your own just let me know. I would be happy to pass on some easy tips. I am excited to get this project finished because I now finally get to accessorize… more of that to come! Thanks for stopping by! I will be posting this over at Met Monday over at Between Naps on the Porch… Check it out and be inspired! http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/2009/08/welcome-to-33rd-metamorphosis-monday.html

  3. Very cute…love how the colors pop! Don't you just love sewing?! 🙂 The only problem is that it can become addicting! 🙂


  4. I don't have a sewing machine so let me know how to make the curtain. I have a white shower curtain and would love to jazz it up like you did. Let me know how you did this and I'll most likely need to copy the accesories you mentioned. Aren't I pathetic? LOL
