Pop Can Tabs for Shower Curtain Grommets

I needed to hang a shower curtain made from a bedspread I no longer used. I do not have a button hole option on my sewing machine nor did I want to spend money on grommets.


I had been saving pop can tabs and with a simple zigzag I was able to quickly attach all 12 tabs across the top of the fabric. Worked like a charm and no one knows they are there.

Wonderful! I've been enthralled with making jewelry, belts, and even a purse but I've been trying to think of uses outside of accessories for a long time, great work!

An industrial "steampunk" look for a bathroom: This look would be clever on the outside of a canvas drop cloth or panel of other sturdy waterproof fabric. Held up by stainless steel shower curtain hooks with ball-bearings at the top - perfect! If my house weren't decorated in a more traditional style, I'd do this for myself!
