Hey all,

Last summer I was at a music festical in Belgium. There was a huge storm at it though at my tent was ruined - all I salvaged was the clip-on top of the tent. Sad Anyway, I just rediscovered it this afternoon and I'm wondering what I can make with it.

It's 57cm squared (about 22.5" I think?) so not terribly large. It's a sort of polyester material material and a bit opaque. I'll try to get a picture later to show you all but I hope I'm making the description clear.

At the moment I'm thinking of using it as the lining of a wallet or small bag. Any other ideas? Cheesy


Here's a picture of what I'm talking about. I have the blue square that's stretched over the top of the tent in this image:

Shopping Bags or produce bags.  Tent fabric would be great for this because it would be really light weight and would fold up small.  You could use the mesh part for the produce bags and the rest for shopping bags.

No idea, but bless you for being on the Pukkelpop grounds when the storm hit.

Great idea, thanks Smiley I only have a small amount of fabric though so it'd probably just be enough for one bag.

Yeah it was a crazy alright. At least there's a story Tongue We were under one of the most stable marquees though, so it could have been worse.
I just want to make it all!

OOOH! I had an idea last week, My dog is crate trained, so she sleeps there at night, and while we are away during the day. I have a large pillow bed in there for her, the only issue is I have to clean it constantly since she tends to track so much fur and dirt in with her, I was hoping to make a new pillow bed, but line the bottom (outside) with a nylon like material so the stuff that settles at the bottom of her crate doesn't soil the bottom of the pillow as easily, and isn't sticking to the fleece. If that makes sense... I hope:)

You could maybe make an umbrella out of it... You could find an old umbrella frame from a thrift store?

Tent fabric can melt.  You can easily make those singed flowers with it... the ones where you cut circles, hold them above a candle until the edges melt (careful that they don't ignite), and stack them into a flower shape.  Use them to adorn clothes, bags, hair, necklaces, etc.
