my daughter recently turned two and for christmas i made her a teepee. she has a great imagination & loves to organize her things. i knew she would love having her own space!
years ago, i made a one for the boys, but at some point it was left out in the rainy yard. i still had the old poles, so we spray painted them to look like new and i started sewing! i used fabric that i had on hand, so the gift cost absolutely nothing.
it was quite a statement on christmas morning and i’ve been rewarded daily by watching her embrace her special space. on a gray day it can get a bit dark inside, so i strung a small vintage chandelier inside…right above her wicker chair & basket of bears.
