I can say this because I've been looking for an attractive shower curtain--nay, a Non-Ugly one--for some time now. Years, actually.
Seems like yesterday that my little sister and I were standing in front of the U-shaped shower curtain display at a nearby store whose initials are all the same letter and shaking our heads at the vast array of u-g-l-y options.
I know I sound snotty. Please don't hate me.
I'm annoyed because a non-ugly shower curtain (NUSC) seems like something that ought to be widely available, doesn't it? I mean, there are NU tablecloths for sale in the world, NU napkins, NU bath mats, NU toaster covers (oh: wait).
So I took matters into my own polyester-filled hands and made one.
I did this both because I need a shower curtain and refused to spend 39 bucks on something super ugly. And also because I'm really wanting to get into the Sewing Book of World Records under the category entitled, "Most Made Things With Abandoned Fortrel."
And the upside of using this fortrelesque polyester is that it is not only dirt cheap and comes in all sorts of relaly pleasing textures, it also DOESN'T RAVEL, so I didn't even have to bust out the button hole foot on my machine. I just snipped little holes for the shower curtain hanger things.
And now when I take a shower I nod my head a lot. Because I'm right: it's just the thing: fetching, even..
