It’s the simple things. I’m in the process of making lovely girl her very own theatre! This is quite possibly the simplest project I have ever worked on. Take a length of fabric (in this case red velvet) cut to the size of a doorway; make sure it’s higher than your child – but it doesn’t matter if it doesn’t reach the top of the door. Cut down the middle. Hem. On the top hem make a channel so you can put a pole through. Spend, in my case £2.50, on an extendable curtain pole (mine came from Amazon – but actual real life haberdashery or fabric shops will have them too!) Then add – if you want – a fancy embellishment or two… done.
Happy doorway theatre!
My intention is to add a panel hanging from the top bar which would transform this into a puppet doorway theatre; but lovely girl isn’t at an age to love puppets yet so for the moment she just loves running in and out of curtains saying “ta da” so I can’t argue with that!
So it turns out our street loves bunting and ballons! All union jack themed of course!
So not wanting to look like slackers: I’ve grabbed left over tissue paper and sciccors and run up a couple of red, white and blue paper pom poms, ( see birthday pompoms post for the making details! So now at least we’ve got a door decordation and gate hanger – and dont look like grumps!!
For the door
For the gate
Left overs- for the bin!
So its the queens jubilee and we get lots of days off, streets dripping in bunting and all day partiss with sausage rolls and mini scotch eggs!. I’m mid making a red, white blue dress for baby! I made one for will and kates wedding last year too.
To be worn with a white t-shirt and bare legs – as its been so hot.
Oh my how’s she’s changed!
Dresses are very simple to make. I usually just grab a current dress and use that as the template – then zip it all together on the sewing machine!!
Happy weekend everyone!
