Shower Curtains From 4 Generations..repurposed, Remade and Redefined


It's finally done, the shower curtain that took 15 years in the making! Actually the gathering of the hankies and the waiting on a decent sewing machine. Basically, collect alot of womens' hankies, zigzag stitch them to old window sheers or other sheer material, sew ribbon scraps to the top and they are made.
Pinning the hankies to the sheers outside on a beautifuul day.

The pair of sheers was my great-grandmother Mary's and the hankies are from various women in my family and those gathered from thrift store and antique malls.

    I think it's a great idea. I would have ironed the sheer and hankies for a crisper and more finished look.
