Shower curtain made from Mendocino by Heather Ross fabric. It's the same exact fabric I made the duvet from but with a very pale pink background. This was sooo hard to photograph!
Shower curtains are super easy.
1. 5 yards of (approx.) 44" wide fabric cut in half to make two pieces that are 2.5 yards by 44".
2. join them together along the long edge with a 1/4-1/2" seam (your choice). You can leave the selvedge with the writing on it if you want. I used 1/4 seam because i was matching my mermaids and had only so much to work with. Iron the seam open or serge together.
3. Fold over sides first: 1.5" then fold again 1.5", iron and sew close to edge. Sew both sides.
4. Fold bottom up 3" then another 3", iron and sew along edge.
5. Fold top down (always fold to the wrong side of the fabric) 2" then another 2". Iron and sew edge down.
6. Measure your shower liner and mark where the holes are on your shower curtain and make button holes. You can also use grommets but make sure they are big enough for your rings to fit through them. My liner has 12 holes but my fabric was wide enough for 14. When hanging the curtain, I folded over the end ones and they shared a ring with the one before it. Make sense? Probably not. Oh, I made mine longer than usual becasue my curtain rod is really high.
I hope I didn't leave anything out...

Here's Ava rocking out to the Dinosaur song. I had to post both videos because they both equally make me laugh. She didn't know the video was recording so she really got in to it:) Emily looks like she has a neck brace on. It's pretty funny.
