journal entry:

No kidding.  This is a 15 minute swimming bag.  It is made from a shower curtain.  Not an expensive shower curtain but a $5.99 shower curtain on the discount table.

  • I measured down 24″ from the top of the curtain and cut.
  • Then I folded the piece in half and cut again so that each piece had the holes for the shower curtain hooks at the top.
  • I folded the piece over to put right sides together and stitched around the bottom and the open side.
  • I zig zagged the edge to keep it from fraying and to make it stronger.
  • I put a large safety pin through the end of some ribbon and threaded the ribbon through the hook holes
  • I tied the ribbon at the end and added additional pieces of ribbon to make it flouncy.
  • I added a flower I had in my stash.
  • I added an ID tag to keep things from getting lost.

Start to finish:  15 minutes.  No kidding.  The pieces I cut from the top will make 2 bags.   I finished the edge of the remaining piece of the curtain and folded it up.  It is a perfect lightweight cloth to put on a picnic table or on the ground.
