What are you most proud of? That I kept trying until I got the tensions right.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Cut extra length for the ruffles. Gather the length you need and then cut the ends to match the pattern pieces. Too much time was spent adjusting the cut out fabric to the "base" requirements. Look for fabric on sale!

Thanks. You should have seen my sewing room when I was through. An amazing mess. However, a very satisfying project.

Thanks I used a Kwik Sew Pattern. The side walls indicated a seam allowance but did not have that. Caught the error before construction. ;-) Warning for anyone who decides to try it.

Thanks for the comment. You encourage me to get my serger out and do something new for that child.

Thanks for the comment. My mother used to throw a sheet over a card table for us to play camping on a rainy day MANY years ago. I thought this would be even more fun for my young friend.
