Has anyone made there own shower curtains. If so , can you give me any pointers ? With all the curtains in the stores I can't find anything I truly love ! Thought I'd try it on my own.
Thanks in advance !

Most ready-made shower curtains are 72"x72". I like to start with full-size flat bedsheets which generally measure 81" wide x 96" long. The bedsheet only needs to be hemmed to your desired finished length and width/fullness and is one piece of fabric requiring no extra seams and matching patterns. And, like Lois, I add buttonholes to the already hemmed top and an inexpensive plastic liner. It's also nice when used in a bath located directly off a bedroom so you can coordinate the linens.

I totally agree with Lois - buy a liner and use as your pattern. I love my everchanging palette of curtains. Not only does the curtain truly match my whim AND decor but by watching the fabric sales I can sometimes get them cheaper than ready made. Score !

I purchased cotton fabric. I made my curtain the same size as purchased curtains. Then I made button holes in the top the same distance apart as on the plastic curtain. I also used an inexpensive shower liner behind the fabric. You can use that for your pattern. The curtain looks very nice and lasts so much longer than a plastic curtain because the holes in the top don't rip through.
