PEE PEE TENTS....

After spending a day cleaning my sewing room I actually managed to do something this weekend. I haven't sewn on the machine in about 8 weeks....

Something easy to start with I think.

A colleague of mine is having a little boy and leaving work in 3 weeks. She wanted these TEE PEE TENTS made. I had never heard of them so I searched Pinterest. Oh, now I get it..
They looked simple enough. So off shopping I went.
Flannelette dinosaur print and a soft mint green towelling.


I traced around a salad bowl that was about 6 1/2" diameter.
I then cut it out, folded it in half 3 times and cut out 3 sections leaving 5/8s of a circle...
Cut out 1 piece in flannelette and towelling. Stitch them together...

These are very quick to make.
I used a 20cm strip * 1 m wide of flannelette and towelling.
I managed to get 8. You can't really see that it is a shape like a witches hat but they should be ok.
I think maybe I should have got a photo from a different angle. 


I got the idea after looking at many sites on Pinterest but this is the one I followed.

Well, that's creative! I'm sure they'll be useful for a mom to boys.

I had no idea what they were for until I read the link, someone thought of them from their own experience.

Since I have a grandson, I have seen these before. They work if the baby holds still (ha ha).
