Well, the bag of "stuff" has been sitting on the dining table for long enough. Inspirational stories were flowing from my Instagram vintage caravan lovers @my-tiny-caravan and I decied to get started on this awning.
When we bought the van, there was a tarp style awning included. I doubt it had ever been used, so we strung it up and it was a perfect fit. All good to go with the same measurements.
Sounds pretty straight forward and with help from https://projectmidge.wordpress.com/do-it-yourself-awning-instructions I hit the ground running. That's when I came to the first hurdle. Where am I going to lay out all this fabric ?
I needed 3 pieces with a narrow piece through the middle. I don't have a mathematics degree so working out how to match up the stripes was proving problematic, so I just changed the width for the middle joins. French seams ???? I'm your gal.
An industrial sewing machine would also have come in handy . . . . . .
