Woah, you have some serious lino skills there!  And I have a terrible weakness for bees and bee-related things, so for me this ROCKS!  Smiley

WOAH!  It looks even better than I thought it would!  Love it.  Cheesy  (And now I _really_ need to find a mo to do something with all my lovely Cranes, lol.)

I'm beginning to wonder about doing a QAYG thing with the Crane blocks I got in the last quilt block swap - I want to put sashing between them anyway and it would make life a LOT easier...

Thank you everyone!  My niece seems to really love it; I also gave her a little wooden stool with a ladybird on it and she spent a lot of time carrying it in and out of her new "house" and playing "peep-o!" with the doors and window.  Smiley

That is really lovely!  Thanks for sharing how you made it - might have to try making one myself.  Smiley

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!  Wink

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!

View from the back:

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.  Smiley  I used a couple of orange and aqua prints from my stash to make the plant pots and the mini bunting.

Oh, I was wondering too!  I think I'll be building myself some very cute little towns!  Cheesy

I've started sewing up hexies with the extra squares people have sent - I think this wall hanging is going to be lots bigger than I thought it was!  Smiley  I got a bit sidetracked with ALL the work, but I'll get back on it soon.
