How To Make Shower Curtains

You know that feeling when you’re in the shower and the steam just can’t seem to cover up everything? You know that moment when your thoughts drift to all of the things you should be doing right now? Well, the steam shouldn’t get to you because it’s probably just you and your shower curtain. The steam is a good indicator that you’re in the right place. It’s the same feeling that makes you want to get out of the shower and get ready for the day. You want to be able to focus on the important things, not the steam. The same is true for your bathroom. There are a lot of different things that you could be focusing on other than the steam. Here are some tips on how to make shower curtains.

Measure The Fabric 

Measuring the fabric on your shower curtain is important, but it’s not always easy. Some fabrics are super stretchy while others are very firm. It’s hard to know until you try. You want to make sure that the fabric you choose is stretchy enough to fit around you, but also strong enough to hold up the shower curtain. Most shower curtains have a one-inch elastic band sewn into the bottom hem that you can use to measure your shingle. You want to make sure that it’s enough to hold up your shower curtain, but not so tight that it restricts your movement. If you have trouble doing this, you can always use a measuring tape instead.

Cut The Fabric 

Cut The Fabric 

When you’re measuring the fabric, you need to make sure that you’re cutting it to the right size. If you’re cutting the curtain fabric too big, you’ll need to hem it. But if you’re cutting it too small, you’ll have a wasted curtain fabric. The trick is to cut the fabric so that it folds in a straight line. If you have any difficulty with this, you can always use a piece of paper as a guide. If you’re cutting the fabric with a serrated or blunt knife, you may have trouble making a straight cut. One trick is to hold the fabric between your hands and use your fingertips to mark the fold line. Then, use your serrated or blunt knife on the marked line to cut the fabric.

Cut The Width To Size And Hem 

When you’re cutting the fabric, don’t worry about making it wide enough to fit around you. That’s easy. Just cut the width the same as the curtain. If you have any difficulty with this, you can always use a piece of paper as a guide. If you’re cutting the fabric with a serrated or blunt knife, you may have trouble making a straight cut. One trick is to hold the fabric between your hands and use your fingertips to mark the fold line. Then, use your blunt knife or serrated on the marked line to cut the fabric.

Cut Length To Size And Hem 

Last but not least, cut the length to size and hem the curtains to make them fit nicely around the length of the curtain rail. If you have any difficulty with this, you can always use a piece of paper as a guide. If you’re cutting the fabric with a blunt knife or serrated, you may have trouble making a straight cut. One trick is to hold the fabric between your hands and use your fingertips to mark the fold line. Then, use your serrated or blunt knife on the marked line to cut the fabric.

Sew The Side Hems 

Once you’ve cut the length to size, it’s time to hem the curtains. Begin by folding the fabric in half and then in quarters. Make sure that the fold line is exactly where you want the hem to be. Now, hem the edges with a 1/4-inch seam allowance. If you have any difficulty with this, you can always use a piece of paper as a guide.

Sew The Panels Together 

Now that you’ve seen the panels together, you can begin to add the grommets or buttonholes. You can either use grommets or buttonholes as long as they’re the correct size. A grommet should be about 1/4 inch in diameter and be able to hold up to 1/4 inch of liquid. A buttonhole should be about the same size as the grommet, but be able to hold up to 1/2 inch of liquid.

Sew The Bottom & Top Hems 

To finish up, add the hems to the bottom and top of the shower curtains. This is probably the trickiest part. Begin by matching the bottom hem with the bottom of the shower curtain. For example, if the bottom of the shower curtain is 30 inches long, the bottom hem should be roughly 18 inches long. If you have any difficulty with this, you can always use a piece of paper as a guide.

Add Grommets Or Button Holes 

Add Grommets or Button Holes 

You can either add grommets or button holes to the bottom hem or top hem. Grommets are easier to add but require a bit of creativity. If you’re trying to make a statement with your shower curtains, you can add buttonholes to give the appearance of a hand-painted canvas. If you choose to use grommets, be sure to use quality hardware. These will likely last for years and years and are the perfect solution for a shower curtain that you might take a year to finish.

Create Button Holes For Rings

Creating a buttonhole in your shower curtain is perhaps the more creative solution. If you’re trying to make a statement with your shower curtains, you can create a buttonhole that looks like a painting and hang your curtains on the walls. Alternatively, you can use the buttonhole as a place to hang your rings.

Final Thought

When you’re ready to make your shower curtains, the last thing you want to do is to start cutting them. That’s probably how you got them where they are in the first place! The steam from your shower can be a good indicator that you’re in the right place. The same is true for your bathroom. There are a lot of different things that you could be focusing on other than the steam coming from the shower. Here are some tips on how to make shower curtains.

At the end of the day, it’s important to remember that you’re not just a shower curtain. Shower curtains are just one piece of the bathroom decor. Your bathroom also needs a good cleaning. Make sure that you use a good-quality cleanser to get rid of any dirt and grime. Use a gentle cleanser if you have sensitive skin. If you have hard water, you should also be careful not to overwash it. It’s better to overwash one thing than clean wrong on the wrong side.
