Help.... I am in the middle of sewing my shower curtain and I noticed that the fabric has some small holes in it.
I am a prim/country decorator and I like things a little woren . The fabric is a grey ticking . I can work around the holes but it would mean putting in an extra seam. Should I leave it and consider it part of the look or do you think people will just think I have a hole in my shower curtain??

I think it depends on the size of the hole.

My personal opinion: if it's bigger than a dime or a nickel, fix it - otherwise, it adds "character". :)

(the hole on the size of the piece of fabric too depends... a quarter sized hole on a king size bed spread might not be as noticealbe as a dime sized hole on a kitchen placemat.)

:cents:

They are tiny. Three holes, the size of a pea. It looks like something pierced the entire bolt of fabric.

Would patches look weird on it? Otherwise--they're small, I'd leave it.

as long as they're not all clustered in the same area... i'd leave it alone.

besides, on grey ticking, it'll add a some personality, IMO.

and even if they are all clustered together, you could always just add some embroidery to "cover up" and add colour, dimension, etc.

I don't mind a few holes or whatever in many of my things. I live in a suburb, but have "country" ways... and as long as whatever it is still has life left in it, I just appreciate the holes, small tears even more... shows me it's worked as hard as i have! :)

I say leave em, I mean we all know prim is tattered and torn looking items so this might just add to the look, plus... if they are tiny they probably wont be that noticable, I would think.

Let us know how things go! :)

Just in case your having second thoughts I'd leave the holes. It adds character plus if someone says something you'll know whos looking too closely at your home.
