Entertaining kids is one thing. Entertaining kids in a way which excites their imagination and promotes their creativity is another.

That's why, when my brother asked me to make a Doorway Puppet Theater for our nieces, I was more than happy to lend my sewing skills towards a great gift for the little girls in my life.

Unlike a traditional, bulky puppet theater, a Doorway Puppet Theater hangs on an adjustable tension rod. This allows for it to be moved  to fit any doorway, and then rolled up for easy storage.


This tutorial will teach you how to make a pretty Doorway Puppet Theater for both you and your little ones to enjoy.

Step 1: Materials Needed

Heavy Cotton fabric
Nylon/Organza fabric
Scissors
Pencil
Ruler
Pins
Sewing Machine
Thread
30" long Wooden Dowel (1/2 inch diameter)
Adjustable Tension Rod (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005VGMJF2/ref=cm_sw_su_dp)


The fabric chart shows the measurements for the cotton and nylon fabric you will be needing. I strongly recommend raiding the remnants section at your fabric store, and buying around a yard of each of the fabrics (except for the red, which was around 1/3 of a yard).

I made it twice actually - once about 20 years ago, and then again recently for the grand nieces and nephews (http://www.instructables.com/id/Easy-Doorway-Puppet-Theater/). Yours is gorgeous, and truly a doorway theater of Broadway standard!
