Ikea Hula Hoop Tent

September 2, 2014

So much fun to have my daughter back from vacation.

She enjoys this tent a lot, brought all her stuffed animals, mommy and daddy inside, and wants to sleep in it…

Got the fabrics from Ikea, a hula hoop for 3$ at Walmart, the smallest I could find… i didn’t want it to take up the whole room space, butI think a larger one would have been more roomy.

Sew some pockets on the underside of the tent.

It needs a big round foam pillow…on the to do list.

It is pretty dark inside, I do not think of it appropriate for reading…

I could add a window.

I also want to hang a birds mobile inside, since I already have the birds all sewn up and the embroidery hoops.
