Charlotte's Puppet Theater


I have (almost) finished the doorway puppet theater I'm making for Charlotte's birthday. I looked and looked on the Internet for a pattern but never found one that I loved...so, I made one up. For me, that translates into some mistakes along the way, but I'm satisfied with the results anyway. Want to make one, too? Here are some awesome guidelines. I will admit, I didn't read or follow all of it (mostly because I have to see it rather than just read it), but it does have some great pointers like making sure to have a dowel directly under your stage or else it will droop.

I used a total of about 5 1/2 yards of fabric because I lined the back. One 40" tension rod. Two dowels. About 4 yards of ribbon. 1 yard of beaded trim.

Hope she likes it.
