The Big Top - Part 2

I've kept you in suspense long enough. If you are curious how The Big Top Domed Circus Tent Challenge of 2012 went, wait no longer...


Yes, a custom tailored domed circus tent topper was created. My marriage and sewing skills were pushed to their limits :).


It's certainly no teepee, is it?


In the end, however ridiculous the logic my husband used, it does appear that if I can  make a pillow, I can make a fitted domed circus tent topper. 


My only worry.  I fear, in the near future, my husband will turn to me and say, 'If you can make a domed and fitted circus tent topper, you can  make 'insert the most ridiculous request here'".

* If you missed The Big Top Part 1, and need a good laugh, you can find it here.

    1. Thanks Jonell. We were actually able to use things we already had so no money was spent but if there is a way I can get those countless hours making this thing back, let me know :)

  7. It looks like it came out very nice! I would have gone all ghetto and just thrown a sheet over the top or something. ;)

  8. Talk about creative...you take the cake...I mean the circus! I bet you CAN do "insert the most ridiculous request here". I would consider that a huge compliment if I were you and just keep up the good work!

  29. Amy,
    I love this, you are so talented. Our family loves to camp and this would make a great in-between camping trip play tent for the kids. We could set it up in the backyard for an afternoon for fun. Love this idea, thanks for sharing.
