I first “met” Robin a little over a year ago. Even though we’ve never met in person we’ve been able to collaborate on several projects for her home. First were a couple of pillows for her barstools. Seen here. Next we made three pillows for her living room. Seen here.
Our latest project is a shower curtain for her main bath which is also her daughter’s bathroom. So we had to make sure her daughter approved as well!
Robin said the colors she wanted to use were chocolate brown & blue. I found the brown and blue damask as a remnant and knew it would be the perfect jumping off fabric.
The problem was I had less than 3 yds and your average shower curtain takes 5 yards! Knowing Robin loves animal prints the obvious solution was to mix in this Cheetah fabric and a bit of bling.
Sometimes, I think the limitations on a project (like having only 3 yds of your main fabric) help to create a better end result. The fabric dilemma had me thinking of other creative ways to make a shower curtain.
This shower curtain more like a regular window treatment instead of your typical shower curtain. The wooden rings are sewn on just behind the ruffle along the upper edge.
Improvising in order to get a photo, I hung the shower curtain from a rod stretched between the two doors leading into my master bath.
Later, Robin sent me this photo of the shower curtain in it’s new home! I cannot tell you how thrilled I was when I read her email…
“I received the shower curtain yesterday and all I can say is WOW, WOW, WOW!!! It is absolutely perfect!!! The ruffle trim you added was adorable and that trim….oh my I could put that trim on everything in my house!!! My daughter was thrilled too!!! It amazes me how you “get” my taste without ever meeting me personally.”
Thank you, Robin! It’s been such a joy working with you!
