Waverly Contest Entry

Click here for your chance to win

Here is my entry to perhaps win the $100 gift card to JoAnn Fabrics and some more excellent Waverly fabric.

The winner had to make the most unique project and I think we came through-

WE MADE A PUPPET SHOW!

First Jared took an old wipe off board and covered it with the lovely Waverly fabric.  It was perfect fabric for the job since it is very thick and sturdy and withheld being stapled to the board.

And yes, watching “The Big Bang Theory” does help make these sort of projects more fun.

We attached shutters with hinges that I had bought two summers ago at a garage sale (2 for $1), so glad we found an awesome purpose for them.

I added a couple flowers to the top right side of the puppet stage to spice it up a bit and to incorporate actual sewing.

First fold fabric wrong sides together and then cut it this way:

Then sew the straight line with a basting stitch and pull one thread to gather the fabric:

Wrap the fabric around your finger to form a beauty of a flower

then I hand sewed the flowers to the fabric:

I am so glad they chose this print to send to me because it will look wonderful in our toy room and it looks great for outdoor showings of our new puppet theater.

One of my favorite parts of this theater is that it folds flat, for easy storage for those few minutes when we are not practicing our puppeteering skills.

So good luck to me and now good luck to you-
