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!

How did you make this? Did you have a pattern?? Would love to make one for my granddaughter

This is a Kwik Sew Pattern. I says it includes the seam allowance but it does not. I figured that out just before I started sewing the base and added steps of fabric on the edges. Knowing that, you can add the seam allowance as you cut out the side panels that go around the card table legs. Glad you like it.

I can't wait to get started. How does the top stay up?

The pattern has complicated instructions for building a support. Art that point I bought a 99 cent basket I saw at the grocery store that was just the right size. It worked great!

I've had this pattern for a long time but have never made it. You did a great job and thanks for your tips. I think I'll finally give it a try for my 4 year old grand daughter.
