Quick question- Does anyone know why in some of my past posts the pictures are just big black boxes? I have plenty of storage space in my picasa web albums so I'm not sure what is going on. Any advice?
I first saw these a-frame tents on Erin's blog HERE. She got the idea from THIS post. It looked like a very simple but fun project so I did what I always do, called my Dad. :) I sent him the link and my mom texted me a picture that night of the tent. I went to Joann's and got some gender neutral fabric (even though Westin is the only one who plays in it right now) and hemmed all four sides.
Then I took some coordinating gross grain ribbon and sewed a piece on the front and back of each corner to tie to the legs. The original plan calls for elastic but I honestly have never worked with elastic and just went with what I already had.
I also added these rubber stops to the bottom of each leg because the tent would slide open on our hardwoods and tile. I got these in the hardware section at Walmart for less than two dollars and they work great.
He loves playing in here and usually brings his pillow to put under it and acts like he is going to sleep.
Of course I had to add a chalkboard.
Thank you, Dad for another fun toy! Oh, I almost forgot! My favorite part is that it folds up flat for easy storage under a bed or in a closet. :)
