Moving! Sewing Curtains

Curtains for under the bathroom counters

If I just moved, I'm probably making curtains. Even in an apartment that comes complete with blinds.

The unfinished photos of the apartment may not highlight it, but our bathroom has a ton of counter space. And under that counter is...nothing. So we stuffed the open area with cat litter boxes and plastic drawers and laundry detergent. Like one does. I acquired a couple suspension rods and threw together these curtains from beige Ikea fabric to go with our very beige apartment.

I followed my usual curtain-making logic, which may or may not make sense. Equal parts algebra and winging-it. Mostly just winging it.

2 Cut in half (for 2 evenly sized curtains)
4 Iron double-fold hem (+1/4")
8 Sew double-fold hem
9 Iron & pin double-fold hem on bottom (should be larger/heavier than top, if possible), 1/4" + larger
10 Sew double-fold hem
12 Iron, Pin, & Sew hem for top of curtain (large enough for curtain rod)

I'm jealous of all that bathroom countertop space. Quite an improvement from your last bathroom too, huh?

missris - the whole place is quite an improvement from the last place. Except generally price & size. We sacrificed BIG TIME in those areas.
