$4.47 Pin Tuck Shower Curtain

I’ve been looking to make a homemade shower curtain since we moved in to our new home. My former shower curtain clashes with the vintage mint green tile in the bathroom:
Then I got the West Elm catalog in the mail and saw this lovely duvet cover:

So I searched for a tutorial on how to sew this type of pin tuck. THIS TUTORIAL was awesome! I bought a plain flat sheet from Wal-Mart for $4.47 and in less than an hour turned it into this:

A feminine shower curtain that won’t clash with my vintage tile. I am in love.

I finished it all up and hung it in the bathroom. That’s when I realized that all those tucks had made the width shrink more than I thought they would. Dang. It’s a little skimpy in size (next time I’d use a full sized sheet), but I still think it’s pretty and I’m calling it “good enough.”

And now I’m thinking I might make a duvet cover for my bed using the same method. I love it that much!
