Sew Sides

Fold side edge of fabric panel and lining over one inch (Image 1). Fold over another inch to create a double folded edge with hidden raw edges (Image 2). Pin into place and press (Image 3). Repeat on other side. Sew sides and remove pins (Image 4).

Hem Shower Curtain Top

Lay shower curtain on work surface with lining facing up. Double-check measurements to ensure curtain length lines up with curtain rod height. Take rings into account when measuring. It's a good idea for curtains to hang about 1 inch off floor so they don't soak up water. Mark where bottom of hem should be along top of curtain (Image 1). Fold fabric over in a double hem. Press and pin in place (Image 2). Sew and remove pins.

Mark Holes for Curtain Rings

Line up top of shower curtain liner with top of curtain panel (Image 1). Mark where grommet holes are with a pin. If shower curtain liner is slightly larger than curtain panel, position two grommet holes closer together, allowing shower curtain liner to gap slightly (Images 2, 3).
