How to Make a Quick-Change Shower Curtain
A simple row of snap tape makes this shower curtain easy to swap out. This design makes updating your bathroom decor and just throwing the curtain into the wash a breeze. And, if made from waterproof fabric, a detachable section could serve double-duty as both the curtain and liner. Here grommets are used instead of curtain rings at the top because they allow the curtain to slip onto the rod more easily.
When choosing fabric for the detachable lower section, you have two options: buy a water-resistant fabric or waterproof a fabric of your choice, such as cotton. Water-resistant fabrics such as supplex (a raincoat material) work great but offer a limited assortment of colors and prints. Waterproofing a fabric is an extra step, but it allows you to use virtually any fabric you like. When it comes to handling the rigors of a wet environment, both types hold up equally well and can be washed easily.

It is irritating that, after buying an subscription to the "In" online project, I find that many featured projects are accessible only through the purchase of another new magazine, "Quick Stuff to Sew," apparently published by the publisher of Threads Magazine. It becomes more obvious that this "In" thing is merely an advertising device. Disappointing!
