After spending a day cleaning my sewing room I actually managed to do something this weekend. I haven't sewn on the machine in about 8 weeks....
Something easy to start with I think.
A colleague of mine is having a little boy and leaving work in 3 weeks. She wanted these TEE PEE TENTS made. I had never heard of them so I searched Pinterest. Oh, now I get it..
They looked simple enough. So off shopping I went.
Flannelette dinosaur print and a soft mint green towelling.
I traced around a salad bowl that was about 6 1/2" diameter.
I then cut it out, folded it in half 3 times and cut out 3 sections leaving 5/8s of a circle...
Cut out 1 piece in flannelette and towelling. Stitch them together...
These are very quick to make.
I used a 20cm strip * 1 m wide of flannelette and towelling.
I managed to get 8. You can't really see that it is a shape like a witches hat but they should be ok.
I think maybe I should have got a photo from a different angle.
I got the idea after looking at many sites on Pinterest but this is the one I followed.
