shower curtain

Someone wants me to monogram their shower curtain like their towels. Do you know the placement for a shower curtain?

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 anyway.
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.

Exactly :)
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.

Here, a tall Viburnum suffices. ;) Penelope Hobhouse would be so proud.

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!

In my experience, it's a lot easier to wash a shower curtain than to keep the glass door nice. (Did I mention I hate cleaning?) :)

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 years ago....)

Phae,
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 but haven't.
