To say that I am happy with how this turned out would be the understatement of the century. I have been thinking about making this for a long time so I have built it up in my mind. Usually when I do that the final outcome is a bit of a letdown. In this case though I was pleasantly surprised!
The main fabric is a decorator weight fabric from Spotlight. I used a basic cotton poplin for the pink portion and added some gold rope to tie the posts and as ties on the doors. I really love this colour scheme. Pink, black and gold is just perfection! When we move Imogen into a big bed I want to give her room a makeover using this teepee as a starting point.
Luckily for me Imogen also loved her teepee. She crawled straight into it and sat inside drinking her bottle. I think I would called that a gift making success!
The best part of the teepee is that it can be collapsed and packed away when not in use. Ideally I would like to have it up in her room permanently. I am thinking of making a pink cushion to go inside and making it into a bit of a reading nook. One day!
