Play Tent

Here's today's project

A play tent for Pu and Nu

The tutorial at suggested using bedsheets
I still had some of this IKEA material kicking around
And, I'm trying to de-hoard my fabric stash

As you can see, it's a little short.

A success nonetheless and a little tweaking will right it

Best part from the kid's perspective was the pocket
So I'll add a few more

I loved that once we were inside all the butterfly graphics were back lit by the sun

All luminous and cozy

Nature in &
Nature out

Yeah summer!

And when it rains this can move inside for a portable play palace.


  1. Love it!! So cute. My kids would love one of those!

  2. Oh wow!!! That's awesome! I want one for me!

  3. The tent's ace & would have been a huge hit with my kids when they were small.

  4. gorgeous I have had one on my to-do list for some time!

  5. Looks like a fun, cosy spot for your little one. It looks great.:)

  6. How cute! Thanks for linking @Creative Itch's "Sew Cute Tuesday"!

  7. That is AWESOME!!! I will have to remember this for when summer comes knocking down here!

  8. Gorgeous space! I love it and so would my kidlets! Nothing as fun as a secret hideout and obviously one with pockets too.
