Shower Curtain

Over the weekend, I made a shower curtain for the bathroom. I sewed a fabric shower curtain to go with a vinyl liner. In one Pottery Barn catalog from a couple of seasons ago, I had seen this nice white waffle weave shower curtain, but it was around $60. Way too expensive. During a subsequent trip to the fabric store, I saw the same fabric, but with a smaller waffle. On Friday I went to the same fabric store for their 40% off sale and got five yards of white waffle weave.

I threw the fabric in the washer later that evening. After drying it, the waffle weave became more distinct and puckered. It looked pretty neat. The finished size was to be 70" x 72", the same as the liner. The fabric was only 45" wide, so I had to sew two pieces together and then trim the sides in order to get the proper width. After hemming the top and bottom, I hammered in extra large silver grommets. It turned out very nice! I'll post a photo when it's actually hanging up.

I am currently trying to tackle this same project, except I am hanging two courderoy panels on either side of a sheer curtain I made. I have the panels made, but I cannot find the grommets large enough to go over the rod. Where did you find them?
