Other DIY ideas
- Old worn out shower curtains can be reused/redesigned in many ways. For instance if you need a cover for your garden furniture, your mower or other garden stuff that you want to shield from rain and snow. Cut the shower curtain to fit the garden table etc and sew a small channel round the edges and add an elastic into the channel. If you find it difficult to sew directly into the shower curtain, you can use a ribbon to make the edge more stiff.
