It's been really hot up here in Montreal, and I've been looking for something to do with my kids other than a teepee for sunshade in the yard.
My kids are old enough now that making this, especially the PVC frame, is a great outdoor project to do with them.
Jenn gives very detailed tutorials with lots of photos on how to make this beautiful sunshade. A series of five posts provide instruction on how to make the PVC frame, the fabric part, the detail work, and even how to make sturdy seams.
The result is so nice, I want to do it for myself! The kids can play around me.
