Willow & Co - Poplar Pup Tent

So, I made a tent....no really. From purchasing and cutting the PVC pipes to sewing the outside this baby is made 100% by. I didn't come up with it all on my own of course, I followed an amazing pattern by an adorable and talented lady. 

If you haven't seen this pattern yet you are missing out on some quick and easy summer fun. This is the Poplar Pup Tent by Willow & Co Patterns. It was designed by the adorable Elisa of Charming Doodle. It's part of the Glamping pattern collection so I decided to run with that as the theme for my version. 

The pattern tells you exactly what you need to pick up at the hardware store and most places will even cut the pipes to size for you. For my tent I used an old daybed set that my parents dug out of their basement. It from the early 90's. Anyone else rock this awesome bedset?

The bedding set was twin size so I had to piece the flat and fitted sheet together to make it big enough. I also added lace to the edge to up the glam factor a little bit. After I pieced together my 'fabric' it took about 30 minutes to sew together. This seriously came together so quickly.

This turned out more adorable than I ever expected and my girls had so much fun during our little photo shoot. We've already had a couple living room camp out and I can see many more in our future. 
I took a ton of pictures and they were just too cute not to share so if you are interested keep scrolling.
