Time to tackle the awning.

I screwed up and got fabric with the stripes running the WIDTH 
of the fabric, not the 
I am not a seamstress.
I know nothing about sewing.
guess that is pretty obvious

But, it ain't gonna sew itself
so I may as well give it a try!

Not the kind of pinning I usually do...

bigger than my kitchen

MAN that is a LOT of fabric! 

Thank God for the 
Vintage Trailer Talk Forum and the helpful folks who give so much advice.
Love you guys!

I will scallop the edges for an old fashioned look and if I can find fringe down the line I'll add it.

Pom-poms are super cute, 

but since it is such a girly color 
already, that might be over doing

I can see Dave rolling his eyes now!


  1. It's going to look so FABBY when you are done!

    I feel a trip coming on to downtown L.A Fabric District - that is the best place to get a lot of fringe for way less! The pom-pom is cute, but may not hold up to rain so well.

    Keep up the good work!

  2. Oh yeah, I like going to the flower mart too, which is close to the fabric area..we should go! :)
