My niece is two in a couple of days. A couple of months ago, my sister mentioned that kids' teepees are all the rage and that little Nia would really love one if I could make it for her. After some deliberation, I agreed - after all, it was a really good excuse to buy pretty Tula Pink prints from the local fabric shop!
I'm pretty pleased with it:
For guidance, I roughly followed this tutorial I found online: http://thediymommy.com/sew-a-diy-teepee-play-tent/
However, I found that her measurement of 4" for the point of the teepee was far too small (well, it certainly wasn't going to fit my four 22mm poles!), so I ended up trimming the height of my teepee down a bit so that it was more like 6" wide after hemming. Next time (if there is one!) I'll listen to my gut instinct and just make it wider to begin with!
I also tried something very new for me when I decided to add a PVC window. It kind of worked, but I know what I'd do differently next time!

The trim is some amazingly fluffy chenille rickrack braid that I found on a speculative fabric shop trip, and I don't think I could have found anything better, it really goes well with the Tula Pink prints.
I used a couple of orange and aqua prints from my stash to make the plant pots and the mini bunting.
