Guest Post- {{KIDS PRETEND PLAY}}

HELLO CRAFTOMANIAC’S Tracie here from Cleverly Inspired and it is such an honor to be here at Craftomaniac today! Total-blog-crush!!!! Thanks for having me visit Jennie!!

This is one of those projects I wish I would have thought of about 7 years ago—-when MY kids could have used it. They would have LOVED this!

is it a puppet theater? is it a store front? is it an indoor lemonade stand??

who knows what they will think up—I love that about it!

A simple tension rod along with a few fabric scraps….makes for loads of fun! Here is how I did it…
My puppet curtain is 45 wide by 36 tall….you can make yours whatever size will fit on your tension rod. I figured the little girls I made mine for are going to use it in a bedroom doorway area. Cut up 3 scraps of fabric…45 wide by about 12 …

sew together the bottom piece to the middle piece (right sides together)…if you don’t want to sew…just cut the fabric with pinking shears and use a permanent fabric glue…(no need to do right sides together for the glue…)

sew the middle to the top…right sides together…

on the top piece–iron a hem flat and sew a straight stitch..this will hold the tension rod

thread the rod through….

I made a little added detail with black felt…I cut  scallops…

then I attached velcro with permanent adhesive…
let dry…if the glue gives you trouble with the felt—use a hot glue to attach the velcro…

Ready for some pretend play!!!
