Well, you know me… I love to take those resale shop finds and turn them into useful gems. Here we go again!
I found this yellow and white stripe bedskirt and fell in love with the fabric.
Our daughter spends her summer days out front holding lemonade stands so I thought the bedskirt might make perfect accessories for her “business”. I started by laying the bedskirt on the folding table she typically uses.
I took advantage of the corner that was already seemed. By folding and pinning the remaining corners, I knew exactly where to sew the seams to create a perfect fit. Once seemed, I cut the excess fabric away. With the excess fabric, I cut triangles for the flag banner and a rectangle for her money/pen pouch leaving some of the lining fabric attached to use for the rope casing.
A few yards of cotton rope and it was all finished.
The banner hangs from a tree to her umbrella and completes a very professional-looking lemonade stand set-up.
