Here are some bits we have thrifted. Uniform pants, $2.

Keens, I snap them up when I see them. If we can’t use them I’ll pass them on. Such good versatility and quality.

A paper making kit. $2. A really fun school or busy activity.

Bunting in the round

August 6, 2012 § 1 Comment

I added color to the teepee over the weekend. These pole caps make me happy!

This was a trial error sewing project. I started with a bunting template, made it larger and sewed a sample. Adjusted and fitted until I like the look. I used fabrics I had.

A tip-top topper!

See the teepees here and here.

 

 

Teepee take 2

August 2, 2012 § 1 Comment

A picture posted earlier this week showed a glimpse of a newly made project. The picture below is the first teepee completed this year. It took many months but I got a feel for the pattern and the kids really loved it and used it often. But I just couldn’t love the fabric. So I sold it and went to work on take two.

I reinforced some heavy wear areas, and used a neutral canvas cloth.

Now it seems like a blank piece of art and I’m working on adding the finishing touches of color. It is still a favorite with my children, and much more to my taste. I love it!

Where Am I?
