Well, Lizzy isn’t actually here, just her fabric. I wish though. Have you seen her praying mantis named Juniper?
I bought Outfoxed Leaf Stripe in Orange a while back to make a shower curtain. I couldn’t muster up the nerve to figure out how I was going to cut up almost 5 yards of fabric. It was silly really, when I look back. I just used my existing shower curtain for a guide, except for the length. My old curtain shrunk in such a huge way in the wash (even though I’m pretty sure I washed it on cold). Normally I wouldn’t wash such a thing very much, but you know, my kids thought it was just great that the shower curtain hangs right next to the sink – perfect surface for wiping their hands ALL OVER! I had even mounted a little kid height friendly hook to hang their very own hand towel on, but it wasn’t in time I guess.
So the shower curtain had to go. Which also meant the paint, wall art, and fabric buckets had to go, too. I love changing things up, this bathroom had the same curtain/paint for about 6 years, definitely time to move on. You can see pics of the bathroom before here.
I just matched the pattern and used a turn and stitch seam? (I think!, actually this example has more clear shots) to join the fabric making it wide enough for the shower opening. I also used a little Pellon SF101 interfacing at the top hem where the button holes are.
I used the same paint color as my bedroom (since the bathroom is mostly tile, it just needed a little bit of paint). I’m really happy to walk by the bathroom now, it’s kind of a nice surprise! Now to figure out what to hang on the wall and maybe some sewing to make a little organizer for the back of the toilet.
