How do I make it?

  1. Cut the upper layer materials to match up along the printed pattern.  Make sure to leave 1/2 inch overlap to sew multiple lines to join the fabric pieces.   Cut the top layer about 10 inches wider than the bottom so the bugnet can be suspended.
  2. Cut semi-circular pieces to adapt the top layer to the bottom width & sew the rounded side to the top layer at the head and foot.
  3. Sew in a zipper to the upper layer.
  4. Cut the bottom fabric to desired dimensions plus 6 in. on each side for a wall.  Sew box corners in the bottom layer.
  5. Join the top & bottom.
  6. Add suspension loops of ribbon as desired.
