    Table Tent

    My GD's 3rd b'day is soon, so I made her a table tent to fit the dining room table they have (originally it was sized for a card table). It's made from an old set of queen sized sheets. The "bushes" are raw edged applique sewn with clear thread(used FMQ).

    It is wonderful! I would have loved a table tent when I was a child. Sure beats the blanket fort we used.

    I love it!! I always made tents for my kids, but nothing like that! What a great idea, and wonderful gift for a child.

    The table tent is great. What did you use for the windows? Looks like smoked glass in the pictures so i quess it is plastic. She will remember this always and it will be so special since her grandmother made it just for her.

    That is so cute! I know my DGS would love one. Is there a pattern for it or did you just wing it? :-)

    I love the windows. Just for peeking out and seeing what is going on. My kids were fort builders - we still laugh about my dismay when they dragged all of the cushions in the house into the living room. This is a great idea! and not anywhere near as destructive of Home Sweet Home.
