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!

I showed you this frame earlier this week. Over four feet of solidly joined hardwood. I cleaned it and spray painted it blue. I think I’ve finally gotten the hang of spray painting properly.
And since I smashed one of my favorite possessions this week, a bust of David who was my traditional mantle dweller, the frame sits well up there. There is a gaping hole with wires on our mantle, where a flat screen TV can be mounted, and as we rent it stays a hole. The ceilings are two stories up so we need a little bit of a large scale. When we moved in I covered a 3’x5′ piece of insulating board with fabric to be the hole cover and a colorful focal point. I just added the frame this week.
AND the frame is already in use as a photo prop. It is big enough for multiple kids, multiple objects, a whole family! How neat is that?
Oh those siblings.

I’m not actually sure they what they are; 40in lengths of vibrantly colored cloth, hemmed all around. Floppy rayon. I chose them mostly for their color and pattern and in a household with children you can never have enough pieces like this. They are hats and capes and dresses and baby blankets and forts.
