I would love to share one of my summertime projects with you today. I took a little break from papercrafting early on in the summer, to take on this crazyness: sewing a tent for my kids. The idea started growing a few months back, when I saw this fabulous striped fabric at Ikea. I bought a couple of yards of it, but my brain had to think things over a couple of times to come up with a plan, I had never taken on a sewing project like this.
And this is what I ended up with. Basically I cut 4 triangles out of my fabric, and kept the stripes horizontal. I made tunnels along the joints inside the tent to slide the posts in. The posts can be removed easily so the tent can get a wash when necessary. A piece of ribbon, made from leftovers from my fabric, keeps everything in place.
Thanks for stopping by!
