Fabrics: Jack and Jenny collection by Laurie Wisbrun for Robert Kaufman Fabrics


A shower curtain is easier than you think! Choose your favorite fabric and turn it into a one-of-a-kind shower curtain to match your decor! This project is courtesy of our sewing blog, Visit daily for new sewing projects and easy home decor.



  • 4-5/8 yards donkey print for the curtain
  • One package curtain rings with attached hanger clips
  • Purchased waterproof shower curtain liner


Finished curtain: 72″ square


Yardages and cutting instructions are based on 42″ of usable fabric width.

Measurements include 1/4″ seam allowances. Sew with right sides together unless otherwise stated.


Cut Fabrics:

From the donkey print, cut:

  • 2—39-1/2×81″ rectangles


Assemble the Shower Curtain:

1. Using a 1/2″ seam allowance and with right sides together, sew the rectangles along a pair of long edges to make a 77×81″ pieced rectangle. Zigzag-stitch the seam allowances to prevent fraying. Press the seam in one direction.
