grommetted shower curtain
Wednesday December 08th, 2004 01:01 AM
Our last shower curtain bit the dust after only a couple of months. It was a fairly cheap vinyl one, and one of the holes pulled through. The kitten's valient efforts to climb it and/or pull it down may have had something to do with it's short life, but it was still annoying. Meet v2. One of the nice things about my ever-growing crafting empire is that I often have tools and supplies on hand to just do things when I think of them. Like add grommets to reinforce the holes this time. These are just 99 cent Dritz grommets, set with the Dritz plastic setter thing that may even have come in the package with the grommets. We'll see how long it holds out.

In other crafting news, I'm on the lookout for ideas for the old shower curtain. It looks like rice paper, but plasticized.

Yeah, my friend made her daughter a raincoat out of a shower curtain. It may have been more than one- she bought them new for the purpose.

I like the new one, too! You could make waterproof purses out of the old one -- like a raincoat for your regular purse.

I've made purses and toes with shower curtains before. The plastic sews really well. Looks like rice paper? Maybe book covers, or placemats?
