Make A Simple Shower Curtain From A Sheet
Sometimes small, inexpensive decor is all it takes to perk up a room. Using a sheet for a shower curtain has long been a decorating secret, especially in coordinated master baths. With organic full size sheets, you can create a personalized shower curtain and liner for your earth-friendly home.
Why use organic sheets?
Organic bedding and bath products naturally help alleviate symptoms from allergies, chemical sensitivities and skin problems. Often organic products adhere to high eco-standards in regards to shipping, waste management, energy conservation, and the impact on the lives of the workers and animals.
Why use a PVC-free liner?
You know that new shower liner smell? The smell that is emitted comes from PVC. Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) shower curtains are incredibly eco-unfriendly for two main reasons: The plastic breaks down with hormone-disrupting phthalates, and the chlorine creates dioxin, a carcinogenic chemical that is formed during its creation and destruction.

How to turn a Sheet into a Shower Curtain
One (for curtain) or two (for liner) full size sheets – I love Amy Butler’s organic sheets
One or two curtain rods
What to do:
1. The sheet is already hemmed. Many sheets have a decorative, wide hem at the top. Open the seam on either side of the sheet to create a pocket for your shower curtain rod.
2. Thread the sheet through the rod. If you decide to make a liner using the same method, you will need a separate rod for your shower curtain liner.
Note: Depending upon how long you want your shower curtain, you may need to hem the bottom.
