Check out my latest project for Love Sewing magazine. It’s a Portable Doorway Puppet Theatre!
It’s made with a channel at the top so that you can slide in a spring loaded extendable tension curtain rod (I bought mine on ebay). That way there are no holes in your door frames, you can adjust the height you hang it at and you can put it up in any doorway that takes your fancy!
The pattern includes instructions on making a little set of curtains that add to the magic and mystery of theatre. Wouldn’t the Doorway Puppet Theatre also make a good ‘stage’ for a little magic show?
My girls really love it and I have been
subjected invited to many a show since I made it….they have however decided that it also makes a good shop window, so I have also been sold many a wooden ice cream!
You’ll find the full tutorial and pattern pieces in issue 11 of Love Sewing. Available to buy or download now.
