Ever since I found out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to make a teepee for Rowan. When I saw Brandy make one for Kingston a few months ago, it kinda kicked my butt into gear. I found a bunch of pictures on pinterest but ended up pretty much just making it as I went. I did use Rachel’s tutorial over on Smile and Wave as a good starting point. I would head over there if you are looking for a good tutorial. I followed it pretty closely except I made my fabric pieces smaller at the bottom by a few inches. I also added a few details to the front to make it special for Rowan’s room. I sewed some polka dot curtains and made a bunting flag to tie around the center of it. All in all, I think it came out pretty fantastic. Of course, I can see all the imperfections in the sewing and measuring, but Rowan doesn’t seem to mind:) It has become our special reading teepee. We spend lots of time in there through out the day and now, each night before bed, Kev, Rowan and I all lay down and read a bedtime story in the teepee. I strung some christmas tree lights up on the inside to make it a little more magical at night.
