Anthropologie Inspired Bedspread using a shower curtain!

  This is one of the easiest projects I have done in a
 VERY, VERY long time!
When I was giving my girls a bath I was looking at the
shower curtain and I realized that it would 
be perfect for Millie’s bedspread! 
Then, I had a GREAT idea!
I can sew the shower curtain onto a down comforter.  
So that is just what I did!

It took about an hour or so total and only cost me $40!

Here is what I did…

First, I started with this comforter from Ikea which is $19.99.

And this shower curtain, which is $19.99!
If you notice the shower curtain is 100% polyester, which means that it is very soft. Perfect for a bedspread!

 The shower curtain is shorter then the twin size comforter but I knew I would be adding big pillows on her bed so the top of the comforter did not need the ruffles.

I lined one side of the curtain to the edge of the comforter and starting pinning, once that side was pinned I pinned the bottom.

Then, I wrapped the extra part of the curtain 
under the other side of the comforter.
So it looked like this!
I sewed all four edges, then I cut the extra bit of curtain that was left over.

It turned out so much better then I thought it would!
Although, today I realized that it is very hard to take a great picture of a bedspread. Being in a little room did not help, but you get the idea! 

I am beyond excited how great it looks!

What do you think? Is this great or what?!
Can you imagine the possibilities!!!

    This looks AMAZING! It is so pretty- I would love it for my room! I am going to keep an eye on shower curtains from now on. I’ve got a plain white down comforter that could use some ruffles!!

    Super cute!! Can I do this for my room?? haha
    You could also sew the shower curtain onto a comforter cover….that way you can wash it or change it! and it also keeps the comforter cleaner. I also find that some down comforters aren’t always a true white. There is a yellow tinge from the feathers that I don’t like. So sewing it to a white cover would fix that. I wonder what it would look like on a coloured covered?! hmm 🙂
    Very pretty, love this idea!

    What a neat project and it looks great! You really scored on that ruffled shower curtain. I’d have to make the ruffles then sew them on. Love the way this looks!

    I wish I was a little girl again and could have this for my room. Wouldn’t quite be a hit with my husband for our room now.

    LOVE that you used a shower curtain! I love using things for something so very different from their intended purpose. The bedspread turned out beautiful.

    Hanging out with my friends is something that I can live without but rendering my time in serious moments in reading blogs about curtain cleaning is precious time for me.
