curtain for shower window

lak722 | Posted in Quilting and Home Decor on

Hi Everyone,

I just found this site and I am thrilled.  I’ve been sewing for a long time, but I’ve never had access to so much sewing and all the short cuts.

I am making a curtain for a window in a shower area.  Did anyone hear of something to iron on material to make it water proof and if so what is it and where do I look for it.  I have tried sewing a vinyl curtain but it was too stiff.

Any help or suggestion would be appreciated.  Thanks.

    Hi:  This is my maiden voyage into 'gatherings', so hopefully I am posting etc. correctly. 

    I recently sewed a  covering for a window that was in the shower (what were they thinking when they designed these houses ? ) I used rip stop nylon thinking if it worked for tents and rain coats why not the window.  The choice of colours and patterns was limited but I worked with white and added some embellishments.

    I hope this helps.

      Thanks for the suggestion.  I thought nylon would be good too, but I feel maybe it wasn't durable enough.   I will try it.

      I bought the nylon material today and started to make the curtain.  It sews great.  You are right, there were not a lot of colors to choose from.  The color I chose was blue and I'm going to hem it in white.  It should look nice.  Thanks again.
