cafe curtain

Ok, really, you've probably had enough of the new bathroom already. Bear with me.... I've been waiting so long to be rid of my nasty bathroom, that I need to bask in the glow of the new one just a bit more.
This is just a super, super quick project that you could use in any room of the house.
Ok, you're also probably saying, "Yeah, yeah, yeah, dishtowel as a curtain. Seen it a million times."
But, this one looks so sweet and adorable that I couldn't help myself.
I bought these dishtowels in a pack of two at IKEA for 7.99. Being that I don't sew (really, I'm going to learn one of these days), I used my trusty double sided tape trick. I simply stuck a piece of double stick tape all the way across the length of the towel, about 1 1/2 inches from the top. Then I folded the top over onto the tape, and gave it a quick swipe with the iron to set it. And yes, I know they make no sew heat bonding tape, but I didn't have any......


  1. I think you have every right to bask in your new bathroom! The cafe curtain looks great. I wouldn't have thought to use the iron to set the double-sided tape. I don't sew much myself, so I love this idea.

  2. How clever .. and what a lovely photo!
