A pink tent

When I was little, my Grandma Beck made us a tent to play in. We loved this tent! It was made out of PVC pipe and army green fabric, but oh how we loved to play in the tent. We set it up inside and outside.

I got the pattern from my Aunt Norine and I set about making plans for a Pipe Tent. I searched all over for fabric. It had to be sturdy enough and since I needed 6 yards, there had to be plenty. I didn't want to spend a ton of money so I searched for months at the clearance sales. I finally found something suitable. Since I was making it for my nieces - 5 girls and no boys, I thought pink was the perfect color.

It turned out a little short, so I added a border along the bottom. I also made a bag to store it in.
