It was never going to be a sows ear to a silk purse but at least Guinea Shit tent looks a lot more presentable now....
So back to the original tent complete with guinea pig teeth marks in the inner tent....my bargain £10 tent which maybe wasn't such a bargain...
It only took a couple of nights as I didn't plan on spending too long or much money on it as it is just to sell on
Original Tent front....
Back with splodge
And a dubious looking inner
Starting the paint job on the nasty splodge first...
2 nights later all done
Complete with guinea shit on the back
Decided to paint the inner - bad idea when it stuck to the table...will know to put paper under it next time
Finally pitched in the garden
Decided to get a few bits to pimp it....and had a go at a bit of crochet. Made these flowers up as i went along and have no idea what stitches i used, except wrap round a few times untill it was as long as i wanted it
Few poppy bits later and its done (dont like the quilt cover much ordered a different one but it hasnt come. Might try and squeeze this back in the wrapper...)
Without the inner (actually prefer it with the inner for once...)
Few bits im not happy with...i pressure washed it twice and it still had a small mark on it like a tide line....but after i fabsilled the paint, have got...bloody lines all over it where the fabsil is!
Im sure it will fade down and I cant be arsed to fabsil the whole tent, so thats pretty much it
Might take her for a trip at the weekend just so she gets used the once
Decided the tent bags were a bit disgusting (plus everything falls out the holes)....
So sewed up a couple of bags today out of the old wardrobe material gumball gave me
All in one bag now
