CABANA SLIPCOVERS

I just came back from delivering these slipcovers. There is a new, really cool shop here in Coronado and these cabanas are serving as the dressing rooms. (I'll give all the details for the shop in my next post.)
A lovely little chair to sit on.
Talk about recycling: the 'valance' for this cover is from Elena's daughter's crib bed skirt. The panels are draperies from IKEA.

These cabanas are 4' x 4' and were a bit of a challenge to make. I've been wanting to get a 10' tent for the Point Loma Farmer's Market, and, of course, I can't have a plain, boring white canopy. After making this size though, I'm not sure I can do one more than double the size. Anyway, my clients (and me) are very happy with the way they turned out.

Tomorrow, all about Be Styled.
