As a child, I never really liked the circus…I was always so far away that I guess the “wow” factor was never there. But then, I took my own children as an adult. At the time, I was lifting weights daily and I spent the entire time in awe of the strength of the acrobats and performers. Bit Tent is a nod to the strength of adulting everyday…and it is just super fun!
It goes together very simply. Each panel is a simple straight lined row. Start with one and begin adding them to the next. The pattern even includes colors so you can place them correctly without much thought.
I really do love this bag…it will make a great gift for a little person…or use it as wrapping for a child’s birthday party. How fun is that!?
This is an image of my original design from Electric Quilt 8. I design most of my paper piecing patterns in there. On paper first and then I translate them into the program. I use Adobe to clean them up and add directions.
Be sure to post pictures of your finished big tent bag on social media using #jitterywings. I can’t wait to see them.
You can purchase the pattern here. Happy Sewing!
