|I do feed him, by the way.|
Andrew has been a cowboy for so long, I thought a change of perspective might do him some good. I've wanted to make him a teepee for so long and really intended to for Christmas, but then never did (as usual). I knew if I didn't do it soon he might outgrow the coolness of it before he could ENJOY the coolness of it. Seven seems like such a teetering age, teetering between young and old. But I just won't think about that right now.

|The whole tribe.|
Since there are other little indians running around this place, I wanted to make it large enough to accommodate a whole tribe and/or some REAL play and not just sitting in it. A great thought- but, it turns out, not very practical for a bedroom that is nearly the same size as the teepee!
I used these two teepee tutorials. This one for the size/construction. This one for the lacing/opening. I used just over one canvas dropcloth...if you made it even the tiniest bit less huge, you could get away with buying just ONE dropcloth.
I made a fleece fire pillow, too, using the fleece supply that never-ends.
|No underage pipe smoking happened during the taking of this photo. Ps. I love Corynn's expression.|
We ended the night with another bonfire. The edible kind.
