My Creative Space - A Tee pee

I must admit I'm a wee bit embarrassed to share this post. Yes, the tee pee turned out lovely but the "give me a medal for the worst Mumma in the world" part is that it was made last October and has been sitting folded up in my craft cupboard awaiting some teensy (and I mean teensy!) finishing touches. Oh the shame!!!



This project was unearthed in the bowels of my craft cupboard as this "growing bigger by the minute" black duck (sorry, couldn't use little cause it just ain't true!) is in a nesting frenzy trying to empty our spare room for poppet . It's a larger room and perfect for a big sister. Come to think of it...it was perfect for a crafty space come office, come library, come place where I could sit in the afternoon sun and have a cuppa....sob, sob, sob!


So without any fanfare nor great unveilings I simply finished it off (the work of minutes I tell you!!) popped it up in the backyard and called mon petit poppet over to investigate. It didn't take her long before a tea party was being held in honor of a few celebrity friends.



Thanks to my Momle these dolls have been christened Meryl, Oprah and Goldie respectively i.e. Meryl Streep, Oprah Winfrey and Goldie Hawn! And you wonder where I get my hair brained ideas from.....


A cup of tea for you by dear friend "Me-wyl"....no problems!



Down the hatch old girl...insert slurping noises and contented sighing. Mmm...note to self, stop slurping mouthfuls of tea and following each one with a satisfied ahhhh!

For poppet's tee pee I used the pattern from the Crafty Minx book by Kellie Doust and some pretty vintagey style fabric from the abyss otherwise known as Spotlight.



For other I'm sure, "up to the minute" creative projects come and check out these wonders. I'm off to scoot away the Daddy long legs off some more U.F.Os lurking in the depths of my craft cupboard....and maybe slurp my way through a cup of tea or two...ahhhhh!

Stephy its wonderful!!!! i love the colours and the applique on the back, oh you are soooo clever!!! who cares that it took you ages to finish, remember my quilt took me all of 2.5 years to finish, and that was one week before my little poppet was heading into her big girl bed!!! the life of a crafty mumma!!! enjoy slurping that tea treasured friend ;-))

Get out! There is no way a mother who makes an awesome, hand-embroidered-no-less teep is getting any kind of bad mum award. No freaking way! x

Gorgeous teepee, gorgeous dollies and equally gorgeous poppet. You are doing better than me- I have the teepee pattern but am yet to unpack the sewing machine from its box! We have been making do with vintage sheet cubbies instead. melx

But it was so worth the wait! How lovely for your daughter. I love the applique touches. It all looks pretty enough to be set up indoors. Cute tea set too.

What a lucky little girl to be having tea with Meryl, Oprah and Goldie in a gorgeous tent... so so sweet.. Love it! :)

Sob Sob to losing your room - but it will make a great room for a wee miss until you move to something bigger. Looking forward to seeing what else you find half made (I am too scared to start looking)

I'm so glad I don't have to give up my sewing space when my Boo eventually becomes a big sister.... I just have to make room for my computer to fit in there as well.

No shame! That tent is awesome :)
