Since I knew I wanted a pretty, floral design, I hit up some local thrift shops and checked out their linens section. It's always a fantastic source of inexpensive fabric!

To make a shower curtain from a sheet, I chose a queen sized sheet (but a double/full would also work). I laid it out on the ground and placed our old shower curtain on top of it and trimmed it to match.

And then I hemmed it on my sewing machine.

To make my shower curtain hangable with the shower curtain rings I already had, I needed to add buttonholes across the top.

    Your tutorial said to make button holes at top for hanging but your final picture shows the curtain hanging by metal grommets ??????

      Priscilla Store bought shower curtains have button holes in them to put the shower curtain rings through.

      I was going to say they look like the shower curtain ring you pull through but have design..lol

    great idea...but the material not being plastic like a regular shower curtain, how will the curtain hold up to all the moisture? Will you have a constant, wet piece of material (mold)? But I do love all the options for using sheets for designs and patterns.

    Instead of button holes you could also make tabs and put them over the tension rod to hold it up. Just another way to make it look pretty. Especially if you have to cut it to size you might have enough material to make all the tabs. Food for thought! Great idea thanks for sharing
