Sew and Tell Friday!!!!

Hooray, this week i have something to share. Finally. I did this so early in the week that i actually almost forgot i had a finish to share. Poor Avery i had to put her in the stairwell to take this picture because it was the only place i could get her high enough to see the length of my shower curtain.

From a vintage sheet and some other vintage fabrics i had in the house, from my mom, i made this shower curtain. I had some help from this blog tutorial. I would never have known what measurements to use if it had not been for the tutorial.
I am especially proud to have done these ruffles! i don't think i will ever do ruffles again. it was hard and frustrating but the end result is so fun and i guess, worth all the headache
All i need to do is get it hung in time for my company that will be here in the morning. Grommets is my plan but i may have to settle for the quick fix of curtain clips.
Head on over to Amylouwho's and see all the wonderful things everyone has accomplished this week.

Ooooh, isn't that beautiful! And I'm glad you did the ruffles.

Diane said...

This is darling!

I can't wait to see what it looks like when you get it hung up. Too cute, Les.

Yes, show us a photo of it installed in the bathroom - it's so cheery! Thanks for sharing!

Evelyn said...

That looks awesome! Love the sheet you picked, and the fabric you used for the ruffles goes so well with it. Hope you have a great time with your visitors!

Karen said...

Fab-u-lous!!!! What a great shower curtain. I would be making up excuses to go to the bathroom and look at it. At least you can say I tried ruffles and don't have to do them again (if I don't want to).

love it! My fave fabric is the pink ruffle. I did ruffles for that outfit for Zoe, and I agree, they were a little annoying. I think I was doing something wrong though. The good news is that I have a couple things to 'tell' about today!!!! So excited for you to see what I made... it might be really late tonight before I get to post it though.

Pretty print of vintage brights,into a useful curtain! Your ruffles are great.

The Tripp Family said...

oh yay, look at all your comments! I got yours too, and my internet is being funky right now. I think I linked it up right on the S&T page, but I could NOT get the button to post on my bloggy. I'll try again tomorrow. I also went back & added links in my post to you & her. And now, I must go sew on my snap :) Thx for wanting me to participate... I was excited all week knowing I'd have something to post. I'm pretty easy to please :) I failed to mention that I also started 2 quilts this week. Things are getting out of hand over here I tell you!

Love the shower curtain! Don't give up on the ruffles yet! Their not my favorite thing either, but the more you do it, the easier it is to just do it. And like you said, the outcome is always worth it! Thanks for visiting my blog!

MaryMary said...

I've been thinking of making something with ruffles, for quite a while now. Never would have thought about a shower curtain though! Great job!

Such a pretty fabric for a shower curtain and the ruffles are just the perfect touch.

The ruffles are such a great addition to the shower curtain. I love how bright and colorful it is. Great job!

Deb said...

Your shower curtain is so so pretty. Aren't ruffles a pain?? they look pretty, but I think they are nasty to make :)

Rene' said...

What a fun shower curtain!! I love the ruffles. They look great against the floral fabric. Thanks for sharing.
