big tent


They are well out of my price range, but I love these handmade indoor tents and think they'd make a great gift for my nephews and niece.
I love the fun mixed patterns (the top one is my favorite).
Maybe I can get confident enough on my sewing machine to try and make one for them between now and Christmas. I've got 22 days, right?

available here.

I'm not a fan of camping but seeing those, make me wanna try it. At least, at our backyard. :))

These are so cool. (But, alas, out of my price range too...)

Acorn is quite possibly the most expensive children's store in Brooklyn. It is really close to a very good Middle Eastern restaurant though. (The Bedouin Tent) So you can always make the tent or buy them on ETSY for cheaper. I thought about making one for the girls for a half a second. Time is of the essence.

Abigail, if you can replace the bricksin your fireplace, you can totally make one of these tents. Get the architect husband on board - we could knock this out in a night.

Oh I love these tents! I guess this is a dream from my childhood - I always wanted to live in a tent. Now I actually hate camping.
