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!!!

  1. 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!!

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

  5. This looks great! Super flowy and feminine. I’ve definitrly squirreled the idea away for when my little one moves into a big girl bed!

  6. 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.
