I love making toys for the boy, and it was nice to tackle a project in a medium I rarely use. And at a scale I’m not used to!
I might have been slightly influenced by the Great British Sewing Bee. I love that show and miss it terribly… it may have been the main reason I dusted off my sewing machine again. It took me a fair while to remember where it was!
I had the garden canes already, and trotted off to my local Dunelm for the cotton.
I found a cute star themed children’s quilt cover with a rocket ship motif in the bargain bin for £6. The foam base was another £6, and the red accent cotton was in my limited stash at home.
The boy adores his den, and I’m inspired. I loved making it and am happily playing around with some appliqué techniques and colour combinations for my next Teepee. A friend requested one for their little’un, and her friend wants a den for her little boy too… It’s gunna be a busy Spring!
