Every kid deserves an after school (re)treat where they can hideaway. This one is next-level! One of our favorite projects featured in the first-ever catalog is SammyK’s chocolate milk tent, which she dreamed up just for us. The fabric is designed in eight 1 yard panels with assembly instructions included. You can shop the fabric here (we recommend choosing our Lightweight Cotton Twill, shown in this example), then follow along with our tutorial below, written by our talented friend Samarra Khaja herself. We won’t blame you if you end up using this more than your kids do…
About Our Guest Blogger
Samarra Khaja makes happy, beautiful things, inspired by her love of travel, local markets, food and culture, and her young sons.
The daughter of an Indian architect and an Australian painter, Samarra got hooked on making interesting things when she was still a kid, raiding her parent’s high quality art supplies.
She studied for her masters in photography and moved to New York City to work across disciplines as a graphic designer, art director, illustrator and photographer for the likes of The New York Times, the Guggenheim, Bliss, Time Magazine, Victoria’s Secret and Cirque du Soleil, all in her signature whimsical style.
She’s been published and exhibited worldwide and won several awards, but gets the biggest kick from seeing her prize-winning 24’ x 120‘ mural, “Heartbeat Brooklyn” featuring a smiling clawfoot bathtub, bagels on a rollercoaster, and hot-dogs on a ferris wheel, all frolicking and untouched by graffiti on the side of Lowe’s Brooklyn store.
