My son wanted a shield/crest on his shower curtain. I used his paper mock up
to see where it looked best and we came up with this formula.......
dead center from side to side and then measure from the top of the
curtain down to the top of the tub to figure the center of the top to bottom
measurement, if that makes sense to you.
Oh, well... Whatever floats yer boat! ;)
Personally, I like any textiles that go in the bathroom to be hot/boil
wash proof. My shower present shower curtain is boilable nylon. The
new one will be washable at 70C! :) I have the fabric, but the tuits
are all square...
In that case, use polyesster embroidery thread and not rayon. I prefer
the poly anyway, and the new polys have a sheen as nice as the rayon
Square tuits are becoming more and more common, and are not particularly
productive. They get stuck when you try to roll them. There's a gross
or two of them around here which I was going to sand down just as soon
as I get a round tuit. For a template, you know.

Many people have both inner and outer curtains--- one of a utilitarian
type and the outer more decorative. Back in the days when women had
large trousseaus, they monogrammed practically all their linens. Rules
of etiquette dictated the placement of the monograms.
I remember years ago when my sister-in-law got her first fancy sewing
machine and she was sewing everything that could possibly be made of
cloth (she was also into macrame lol!). You know..... everything had a
cover, pillows were everywhere. If they had done cloth bowls then,
she'd have made those too. I walked into her bathroom one day and there
outside the tub which sat in its own niche, she had hung draperies with
pullbacks framing the tub. And while it was not my cup of tea, it did
seem quite the royal bath. ;)
Yikes! Scary... I'm more of a minimalist. We don't have nets or lace
curtains anywhere, and I don't even have a blind in the bathroom! Mind
you, there's nowt out the back but fields for several miles... And
before you get to them there a couple of hundred feet of garden, a
paddock, and some full grown sycamore trees and the like!
My next shower curtain will be plain cream poly, strung on the rail with
giant silver eyelets! :) I need it to be at least nine feet wide and
six feet long, as it has to go round the end of the bath to screen the
windowsill, and the rail is quite high - above the tiles.
You make us seem like exhibitionists - we've had glass doors on our showers
(stand alone and in bath type) for the last 3 homes we've lived in over the
last 12 years! None of this lacy stuff in our home either!

I've been using that stuff you spray on the glass right after you shower
and it seems to work pretty well.
Ob-Sew: Be sure that the spaces on your Sim-Flex are equal before
marking your buttonholes. Measuring mine recently, I discovered that
the two outer spaces were significantly different than the interior
spaces (which were all equal). So now I can only use the interior
spaces for my buttonholes. My Sim-flex has been stored and cared for
well so I am a bit dismayed at this.
I've found that expanding it all the way and then compressing to the
desired size gives the best spacing. If you just pull it open to
whatever size you want, the end spaces are going to be longer -- it's
a physics thing, due to the way the SimFlex works. (My mom taught me
that trick -- she had learned from her home ec teacher lo these many

My glass shower door pre-dated the spray you mention...we use it now on
our fiberglass enclosures and it's good stuff. I expect it would be
just the thing for glass doors.
Disappointing about your Sim-flex, one thing I've always intended to get
