It’s the most wonderful time of the year!! I love the magic in the air, the friendly smiles on everyone’s faces, and the excitement that builds up before Christmas morning. With three kids (ages 3, 6, and 11), we are right in the thick of “Christmas Magic” at our house.
I have been wanting to try the Little Lizard King teepee tent and doll tent for quite some time now. My girls love tents - it’s a great spark for imaginative play, or a quiet place to read. The perfect little doll tent just makes these even more special. We’ll be moving to a house with a little more space soon, and my girls will have a playroom for the first time. I have seen teepee tents just like these for sale from upscale home decor brands - at a pretty penny. I love how they add to a child’s play space, but couldn’t justify the price.
The LLK tents were simple to make, and although they do take some yardage, it is still a fraction of the name brand prices. They do require a trip to the hardware store, but I found PVC pipes already cut to the correct length...easy-peasy. Plus, when you make your own you get to choose your fabric! I wanted something bright and cheery, and found the perfect prints at Wal-Mart (which helped keep my cost down).
I can’t wait to see my girls’ faces on Christmas morning. I may sew up some dolly clothes to hide in the tents as an extra surprise! Here’s to wishing you all a very happy holiday season!!
Today Laura sews the Victoria apron by Handmaidens Cottage for her niece. This apron is great for your family and friends who like to bake.
Today Rebekah sewed her family and friends some personalized wallets using the Della pattern by Swoon Sewing Patterns.
Today Laura creates a beautiful table runner using Ellie and Mac's Christmas Gift appliquéd design.
Today Katherine is sewing up the teepee style tents by Little Lizard King. These tents are perfect for cozy reading time and have a matching dolly option too.

Today Rebekah mashed the Ellie and Mac Be Curious Dress with the Anamazing skirt by Little Lizard King to make the perfect Christmas dress for her daughter.
We've all been there, opening gifts Christmas morning when you get to that dense, lumpy package (that usually says, from 'mom'); and you just know you got your yearly issue of new socks....ummm, gee thanks! Well thanks to The Wolf and the Tree, giving socks is no longer hum drum!!!! Take socks for adults up a notch by making them a gift that your sisters will squeal over and that will put a sloppy smile on your husbands face - because making them for you is as much of a gift for him, promise!!!
