Family Home Evening Board

Growing up, my mom made a Family Home Evening magnetic board that was shaped like a house, had wall paper on the walls, and had little wooden people painted to look like each member of the family. Back in September or October, my husband Matt and I stopped into Zim's, a local craft supply store that was going out of business. What should I find, but the wooden people! I had some nostalgia looking at those, and thought that it would be great to try to recreate the board for my sisters for Christmas. It took a great deal of hunting and some creativity, but here is my take on the board.

Car Seat Tent

Not my own design, but I think it turned out cute. My MIL and I found this fabric at a quilt store that was going out of business. This is the tutorial I followed. I was too afraid to try the rounded corners, but I have seen other tents with the corners rounded, and I kind of wish I had tried it.
