Back! And My Little Anthro Shower Curtain...

Hello!
I've missed you! :o)
I took a little spur-of-the-moment road trip to visit a friend for a few days, and it was a wonderful trip! I only had a tiny bit of "I haven't posted in days!!!" anxiety, and while I was gone, I didn't check my blog or email once! Can you believe that? So I'm sorry if you've emailed me and I haven't responded yet. I will be sure to soon!

So!
Better late than never, here is a picture of the Anthro-inspired shower curtain that I mentioned previously. I know some of you really wanted to see it, so here it is!

(And that third row of ruffles isn't crooked, it's just blowing in the wind!)
Fun, right? Not too bad for a recycled flat sheet! It's really skinny because it's for my free-standing shower. Someday I'll try to do a tutorial with measurements for a full-sized one, but right now I've got tons to do to get ready for the end of the contest in two days!! Yay!

(The Anthropologie curtain was plain white, but I added a little yellow trim and a flower because....I like yellow) :o)

Oh, p.s., while I was out of town, I went to Paradise (Target!) and saw THIS:
HELLO!
I was not even ready for this scarf. Could there ever be anything more beautiful than this? I would make one, but I don't think I could ever find fabric that cute. :o) For now, it will just stay in my "fantasy closet". Which, by the way, is a beautiful, beautiful place....

See you soon, I hope you've all been well! :o)

  1. Get some Voile from Anna Maria Horner's "Little Folks" line and some tassel trim. Of course, the fabric is a bit pricey since it runs at about $14-$15 a yard, but it's so silky smooth and soft even though it's 100% cotton! And on the bright side, it comes in 55" wide instead of the normal 44"!

  2. Love the shower curtain! And I love the fabric on that scarf and the kids' liberty of london skirt (that I was really really really hoping would fit me but no such luck!). Glad you had a great trip!

  4. Omgosh, I LOVE the ruffled Anthro shower curtains & have been keeping it in the back of my brain as a possible DIY project one day but I just couldn't figure out a way to get that much fabric (for a full size ruffled one) without it costing as much as the store one! Did you ever see the dip-dyed one? I think they called it the "Flamenco" curtain, anyway, I love yours!

  9. When you mentioned it before...I knew exactly what ruffly one you were talking about. I wanted that one. Over $100 buckeroos for that shower curtain. I was apprehensive about making one. Thanks for the nudge to try!

  10. Harts Fabric ( my local famous fabric store) carries liberty of london fabrics. And they are even better than target's selection. But they're $40/yrd! But I seriously get tempted every time.

  11. It's true the blogging world just isn't quite the same without you.;)
    I bought the liberty of london piggy bank for the same reason, sure I could make one but it was far to detailed to try and replicate such a pretty pattern!

  12. Target runs really good clearance sales (but you already knew that) so just watch for it!

  13. The shower curtain is adorable. I love that you added the yellow. Isn't visiting with friends the greatest! I'm glad you had a nice trip!

  14. I just did a post with that same scarf in it! I LOVE it! BUT I also loved the two summer dresses and pair of flats I bought today! So... I have to hold off for the scarf... :(

  23. I love the shower curtain! Very cute. And I too fell in love with that very same scarf when I saw it at Target. :) I'm going to have to agree with you when you say Target is Paradise. I could spend all day there if I had a ton of money. :)

  24. Beautiful curtain. I think it would add great texture to a bathroom.

  25. That shower curtain is fabulous! I was at Anthro last week with my mother in law and I was drooling over it... although I drool over everything I see in there. Beautiful job.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I agree. That scarf is just gorgeous. It's both fun and pretty at the same time. :)

  29. I love the shower curtain! I'm thinking of making some curtains similar to that for the kids windows (tie them up when it's sunny) but I'm afraid it may be too ruffled, so perhaps I can make a shower curtain. I'll be watching for the tutorial!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I feel as if you can turn that shower curtain into a really cute spring dress! Love the scarf, btw!

  31. Thank you for posting the shower curtain! I can't wait for your tutorial on a full-sized one. It is beau-ti-ful! Glad you had a good trip, but glad you are back! Your blog is my fav.

  32. i am OBSESSED with that shower curtain. You did such a great job. I have yet to try and make a ruffle because I am too intimadated but I just LOVE them so much!!!

    And the scarf is from one of Target's feature designers...they are only there for a month so if you want that scarf you better rush on over! I love Liberty of London, I wish Target would carry them forever!!

  33. Love the shower curtain! I just made myself an "anthro" ruffled shower curtain as well, but it was a different ruffle shower curtain - smaller ruffles sewn on. Kind of funny, you took their colorful one and made it white, I took their white one and made it colorful. :) I was wondering about finding adorable fabric like Targets new "london" line as well, they have some stinkin cute dresses for little girls, but alas with 2 girls I don't want to spend $35 on 2 sun dresses.

  34. i love the entire "liberty of london" collection too cute, i want every piece! i always say i could LIVE in Target, you know, just like camping but no bugs and i can shop instead of hike...
    LOVE your ruffle shower curtain! you inspire me!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I am soooo EXCITED about this. I am expecting a little girl the begining of July and I am making all of the bedding, etc. for her room and this would be a cute idea for curtains in her room. And I can ruffle thanks to your tutorial :-) I actually started sewing a few months ago bc of your blog and tutorials! THANKS so much!

  36. Love that you refer to Target as PARADISE. I LOVE it too...love love love.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yeah! You're back with great shower curtain!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Love your blog.
    And I just realized I've got a "Fantasy Closet" too! LOL! and it's also full of beautiful things!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Welcome back Disney! ;) I love the shower curtain, you are one talented girl to make everything look so lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hello Disney! I've enjoyed your blog for some months now and am a regular visitor! I work right opposite Liberty of London *in* London - now when I walk past I shall smile and think of you ^_^ (I probably won't go in, it's so expensive, eek, though as you say the things are so beautiful!)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Shower curtain is genius! It's ruffled, and yet not so girly that my hubby would object:0 And I'm totally with you on the Target scarf! beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Glad you had a break, although your blog is delightful to peruse, time off from email & blogging is a good idea!! Your shower curtain is cute.:)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wow! I just came across your webpage (I followed a link from another blog) and its amazing! I went through your entire blog in one sitting because I just could not get enough! Gorgeous ruffled stuff! And great tutorials! Keep it coming, I'm now a follower for sure :) I'm new to sewing, so I'm going to try the T-shirt scarf this weekend.

    PS I love Anthropologie, and I mean LOVE, but I can't afford it so I'm so thankful to see someone is making this gorgeous stuff - means I can try too!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love those Liberty of London scarves too!... but they didn't have one that was just "perfect" so I made my own:

  45. haha! I love your wittiness. "fantasy closet" target = "paradise" hahahaha. I agree though. And Anthropologie is my other paradise. And J-crew catalog shoots would be a wonderful place to visit in my fantasies too. Ruffles and Stuff is by the way my online paradise...I LOVE everything you do.

    ReplyDelete
  46. LOVE the curtain!! Ever since I saw the shower curtain on the Anthro site, I've been dying to try it out

    ReplyDelete
  47. Great now I want that scarf too! Will keep an eye for it at Target and maybe can score it on clearance :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Question for you: How full are the ruffles on your sample? Are they 2x, 2.5x, 3x? I have got myself into a measurement crisis trying to figure out how much fabric to do a 17 layered full size one and I am right now trying to figure out the best fullness. Based on your recent skirt, I am thinking I won't have to go more than 2.25x fullness to get the right look. I hope. Please let me know anyways.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Twyla: mine were 2x the width of the curtain. I hope that helps! :o)
