I absolutely LOVE creating things for family and friends. The only bad thing about that is I over criticise ever stitch because I want it to be perfect…ok, who am I kidding, that’s with anything I make. But when making something for family I always want it to be extra special. So, when my fabulous cousin, Lisa, requested a custom shower curtain for her guest bathroom, I was nervous. That’s a lot of decorative fabric ,which means more money, so I HAD to get it right. Her color palette was simple – black and white. She had some black and white photos of cotton and family hanging that she wanted to use as the inspiration for fabric choice. After mucho searching, I found three options we both liked and Lisa made the final decision. I was nervous because I had to piece to panels of fabric together to it was wide enough, but what seemed like 100 hours of freaking out over it and much mocking from my husband for my silliness, as usual, I went for it and it turned out GORGEOUS! I’m quite proud.
When Lisa opened it, she wrote me and said she absolutely loved it and it look perfect. She sent me a picture!
And I was so inspired when I hung it up for pictures that I made a new shower curtain for myself. (Previous post: Getting Settled and Pretty )
