Mini Update: I wanted to say a quick thank you for all the views and favorites! As well as add in a thank you for Michael who was my extra help on this project!
Step 1: Where it all started!!!
I really liked the Simplicity pattern, but for my purpose, that was for a present for a 1 year old. I felt that this would be too delicate, that said, I do really like the detailing around the top and will be trying to work some of the prettiness into my design.
The McCall's pattern looks really great!! It offers a range of customisation options and is more geared towards play and being kid friendly... but still, you cannot really wash it, or pull it apart in any way for cleaning and repairs.
The spotlight canopy has the advantage of being a free pattern but still wasn't quite what I was looking for and still wasn't easily washable!
I also did a few searched and found some awesome canopies on Etsy and some truly inspiring images on google.
