Not long after Emma arrived, Sophie wanted a tent. I decided to try and make one. I found a picture on Pinterest from a blog called "sew mama sew" and thought, "I can make this."
I went to the hardware store and found some flexible plumbing tubing to use as poles. I bent them into an arc and used this as a template to cut my fabric. I sort of just figured it out from my experience with real camping tents. And here is the finished tent.
As you can see the door is just an open flap, super easy, the girls would want to close the tent flap at night to keep out bears.
I made up some sleeping bags and pillows in matching fabrics and VOILA! Ready to go camping. Here is Emma and Grace on their first camp out in the back yard. As you can see my tent is large enough for 2 or 3 dolls.
