Earlier this year, when we were remodeling our kids' bathroom, I was grumbling about the cost of the shower curtain that I wanted. (Orginal post can be found HERE) I decided to take matters into my own hands and make one. Of course, I had lots of help measuring!
Thank you Frito! Shadow isn't in these pictures because I made this prior to his arrival at our house, whew...I might have had too much help!
I had seen a curtain similar to this one in Country Sampler, but just couldn't bring myself to pay the $88.00 for it. If I couldn't sew, maybe... My friend Melissa (Farm Field Primitives blogspot) and I took a shopping trip early in the summer and I found the perfect material for the curtain.
I used three different fabrics; a navy windowpane homespun, a solid navy and a solid butter colored cotton. The butter colored fabric is actually folded over and it hangs over the navy. I used grommets for the top - never used those before, but they were fun and easy to do. Sorry I can't get a large picture of the curtain, but the bathroom is so small I can't get far enough away to get a better picture - you'll just have to imagine it - or come over and I'll give you a tour of the bathroom!
I mentioned on the last bathroom post that I needed to make a basket to fit between the mirrors, which I did. I made a large sized weed pouch, tied it with the leftovers from the curtain and attached a cream colored star to the front of the basket.
Check this out! I have new tallow berries thanks to my follower Sherri (no blog). Sherri read my last post about my purchasing tallow berries on eBay and she sent me a whole box of them. THANK YOU Sherri! I love them and have them all over in different baskets.
To thank Sherri for her kindness, I made her this tote basket that she can carry to work. Sherri it should be to you by Saturday.
I have to leave you with an update on Shadow. He's home from his surgeries, he's now an "it" and has no front claws. He is feeling much better this week and is tearing around the house causing havoc. Frito missed him terribly while he was gone for 2 nights/3 days (sounds like a vacation - don't you think? Shadow will tell you it was NOT a vacation!) Now that he doesn't have those daggers he's not nearly as terrifying!
Hope you are all having a good week. ~Ann
