The last time I made a shower curtain for this bathroom, I made it with button holes. Button holes are quite nice but really, I love grommets. They’re so clean and sleek. The best part is that you install grommets with a hammer. You know what that means, right? All of your frustrations can be taken out on your do it yourself project. Say it with me, “It’s hammer time.” Bam, bam, bam! Frustrations are gone.
The problem with 55” wide fabric is that when you’re sewing a shower curtain that’s wider, you have to piece the fabric together. I like to press the fabric first, pin it, and then sew it. If you pin it lengthwise on your ironing board, you can place your pins in place into the ironing board. Then put your straight pins in when it’s lined up.
Put plenty of pins into the fabric but make sure you take them out before you sew over them. Sewing over pins is bad for your sewing machine.
Once your fabric is pinned, stitch it into place.
Then, press everything with a hot iron. You can’t sew without pressing.
The bathroom project is almost done. I love how the shower curtain turned out. Now, onto the Roman shade for the window.
What’s your latest sewing project? Have you ever tried grommets?
