Rainbow Tent Kits

Well I have gotten lots of response from the Rainbow Tent Kits I did as favors for Serenity's birthday!  Max and Frank voted them best goodie bags ever. =)  And I got some pics from my sister of her kids using them immediately!  So I thought I'd share a few pics of the tent kits in use:

Here is a link to the original tutorial that inspired me =) Mine are very similar to hers, except I couldn't find sheets that were cheap enough, so I bought a bolt of wide muslin and used RIT dye in my sink to make the rainbow colors.  I was in a hurry with the dye since I had to time it between feeding my newborn, so they look a little tie-dyed.  But for this I thought it worked!  I also used satin ribbon for the loops instead of cutting up knit.   The kits include three large pieces of muslin that I dyed into rainbow colors and sewed loops to each corner.  I got clamps, clothespins, rope, suction cups and flashlights from the dollar store to complete each kit!

  1. What a clever idea to use the muslin and dye it! Looks like everyone is having a great time ... and the kit idea was brilliant! Jules
