Sew Top Ruffle

For the top ruffle, trim a strip of sheet to the height remaining on the curtain plus three inches to allow for a hem at the top plus a one-inch overhang to cover the previous ruffle. For example: If six inches of room remains at the curtain top, trim a 10-inch-wide strip to nine inches wide. Fold the strip under one inch at the top of the curtain (Image 1). Pinch the fabric to create a ruffle, then stitch the strip to the curtain just below the shower curtain ring holes (Image 2). Make sure the fabric folded under is stitched to the curtain as well (Image 3). The fabric can be pinned into place, if necessary. Stitching the top ruffle this way provides a finished edge and covers the curtain ring holes. Trim all stray threads and any remaining excess fabric on ruffle ends. Edges of the cut sheet can be left raw or finished with no-fray glue. Tip: To remove wrinkles, hang the shower curtain, then run a hot shower with the bathroom door closed and exhaust fan off.
