A Girly Tee Pee

Show and Tell

I did a lot of sewing for Christmas presents this year. This is one of the items that I made for my girls. A tee pee. Princess style. ;-)

It was very easy to make; one of the easiest things I have made this far I believe. Just straight seams and hemming. Oh, there were two button holes also. Cutting it out was more work than sewing it. :)

There were other parts to making this that didn't require sewing. I had to buy PVC pipe and then paint it. Which was quite a task, because I painted it on a windy day. Yikes! But all and all it was a very fun and easy project.


Last night, the girls camped out in their room with it. Sweetie is being little miss actress here. She isn't really asleep. ;-)

Then, it took them about an hour for them to get settled in. Bean wasn't being very nice to Sweetie. She kept pushing her out of the tent with her feet. :(

Well, that is my show and tell today. To see what others are showing and telling visit Kelli's by clicking on the button at the beginning of my entry. Have a wonderful day. :)

Very sweet photos. Nice job on the tee-pee. I had one as well for my daughter when she was young. I used to put it up outside and her and her friends would be playing then all run into it... then of course it would fall over. lol Fun times~

Wow you made that!? Very cool. Kaia got a Disney princess tent from my brother and sister in law for Christmas. She loves it, and Mo loves crashing it in on his big sis just as much as he enjoys being in it.

Very cute--did you make the design yourself? How stable is it? My daughter might be interested at some point. Let me Know (you can answer on my blog). I can't believe you painted the pcb pipe stuff!! Looks great and fun.
