Bunk Bed Tent
I finally found something I could make for my son, Caleb! I found this tutorial on a lemon squeezy home, but I followed it very loosely. The blue fabric is actually a queen size sheet that I found at Goodwill that didn't fit on my bed like it was supposed to. I bought 1 yard of rescue truck fabric from Hancock's to add some fun for my son. Because our bunk bed has a full size bed on the bottom, I had to make the shape a little different than the tutorial's plain square one, but it wasn't hard at all. I wish I would have made it a little longer though so it would fit better around the frame. After cutting out the windows and door, I used bias tape around the blue sheet (you can see the green on the window), then I sewed a flap of rescue fabric to the top of the openings. I added velcro to the door and windows so they can be left open. For the ties, I used strips of fabric with velcro. I think I may go back and add a few more ties, you can see that it's a little droopy, especially the window area. My son loves it, and I was happy to make something special for him!
