When it comes to planning special occasions I like to get a head start. So when I knew that P would be receiving a teepee for her birthday I was off on a hunt. The perfect fabric + the perfect teepee maker. Originally I was going to attempt to make it myself - which in reality would have probably worked out. However I don't own a sewing machine - let alone know how to use one! And the thought of not being able to collapse it without taking it all apart wasn't how I envisioned it.
So when I discovered Tnee's Tpee's on Instagram I knew I had found my girl. I love to shop small - especially when I discover mama's who have turned passions into businesses. I had already picked out a fabric c/o Minted that I was really excited about. If you think Minted cards are perfection, their fabric is most certainly held to the same standard. I selected the Springtime Floral Fabric in the linen-cotton blend and fell even more in love with it when it arrived at my doorstep.
After a couple of emails back and forth with Courtney (who's excitement over my fabric choice equally matched my own) she helped me select an interior flap and accent panel fabric. I mailed off my fabric to her and was excited to see the final product.
This was back in May mind you so when I received it I thought, "How on earth am I going to hide this from P?" However I was able to until just this past weekend. With three weeks until the big ONE and a minor room renovation (we had new flooring put in) it was time to break it out. I am so happy with how it turned out and I can't wait to see P crawl in and out of this tent for years to come.
