How to make a child’s teepee
Happy sewing my friends, happy sewing
I found bright white streamers at the 99 cent store but knew I wanted color for little Ella’s 12th birthday surprise party…. of course I just planed to dye them! I honestly was a bit scared but it was so easy and cheep I went for it!!!
I put 50% water to50% RIT in a small plastic container and just set the white streamers directly in… This made the stripes! To do the solid colors I simply added to a larger container.
Let them air dry outside for several hours. They started to “ruffle” on their own a bit…
Took 2 or 3 different ones and sewed down the edges to make the ruffled effect I pushed the streamers aggressively under the foot to gather for me…
Surprise party was a huge hit. She adored the handmade details … Happy Happy Birthday Little Ella
