We just moved into a new place and have more bathrooms than we used to. So for our kid's bathroom, I decided I wanted to make their shower curtain, rather than buy it.  I thought it would be cute to use bandannas (plus then all the edges would already be hemmed) and so went to the store.



While there I found these farm animal bandannas and thought they would be perfect. So I grabbed some as well as some blue and took them home.



After washing and ironing, I measured the bandannas to double check their size and realized the farm animals were an inch larger than the blue ones. I also realized that to get the right width, some of the bandannas would have to be cut in half (or it would be a lot wider than needed and would gather more than I wanted).

Since I would no longer have my already done hems, I decided to just use my overlocker to sew all of the seams. When putting together they layout, I decided it would look weird to have a smaller piece on just one half, and so cut the bandannas into fourths and put a smaller piece on each side.

For some reason, when I was putting it all together, my brain stopped working and I forgot to alternate the colors on the top row (I didn't realize this until I started sewing it together and it was too late). Oh, well I think it still looks good.

Cute!  I'm always bummed out by how boring the shower curtain selection is. (yes, these kinds of things actually bother me) Might have to give this a shot!!

So cute!  And it totally looks intentional that the top is doubled!  Smiley

I like it, just the way it is.  Definitely looks intentional, and it looks good. Great idea too.
