More Like Home

You may know that I love decorating, being creative and using my hands. I like having an idea in my head and being able to bring it to life! And when it comes to my home, I am always looking for ways to make it more welcoming, more inviting and more "homey".

When we moved here I decided that my first creative project at our new apartment would be to sew a shower curtain for our extra bath. I wanted to find some fabric that would coordinate with the maroon-purple tile and counter top as well as something colorful and fun!
Knowing that the average shower curtain cost anywhere between $25-$30 I was also hoping I could find a good deal on fabric and make it for less than I could buy it for.

I found this fabric this past weekend and fell in love with it.



Here is a close up--very fun, don't you agree?!


And the finished product--so, how much do you think I paid for it?



I found the fabric for $2.44 per yard (I needed a little more than 4 yards)--so I made the entire thing for $11.50!
