we've been focused on last minute summer fun before autum arrives. at the top of stephen's list... flying kites. making them from scratch seemed a bit technical, so i decided to buy a couple and modify them. i found simple kites at a local toy store and used the nylon body as a pattern to sew new ones from vintage fabric. we were excited to see them take flight at the park and before we knew it, four hours had passed.
there are twelve more days of summer so you have just enough time to fly your own kite! if you're looking to make one from scratch or even form a kite club, howtomakeandflykites.com is a great resource.
