Shower Curtain Bunting


I found a wonderful vintage shower curtain
a couple of years ago that wasn't usable in the shower
because of damage.
I never had been able to figure out what to do with it,
till I realized I could make it into a bunting.
The plastic material cut very easily.
  
Then I punched holes and sewed 
around the edges with blanket stitch.


Then finally a shell edging.

I just single crocheted across the tops to connect them all
and tada!
I didn't even bother to work in the yarn tails, 
couldn't wait to put it up!

What do you think?

Bye for now!
