We are moving my 2.5 DD into a bigger room and I want to do a tent in there. She is really into stars, moons and fairies.

I love this tent

but was wondering how hard it would be to make with a quilters hope and fabric, or to just tone this one down with stary fabric on top.

I was thinking of these too stickers and [[ http://www.bambizi.co.uk/shop/product.php?id=200 paper]]

To me, that really easy to make (£145 omg)

That would be really easy. I thought "I'd use a hula hoop rather than a quilters hoop" and am pleased to see that the tutorial Gemma posted agrees with me.

Thank you so much. I will make one!

shock @ £145, what a rip off! It's just some fabric and a hoop confused

Make one, it'll take an hour tops!

And as for the paper, shock .

You could buy white sticky stars for much less and diy, very satisfying and a lot cheaper!

Don't know how to link from my phone but you could get loads for just a few quid, never mind £108 for some wallpaper!

Forgetting about the paper.

Any ideas on nice sheets for the tent? Want a pinky one for inside but a voile like one with stars on the outside.

Have you got an Aberkhan fabric shop anywhere nearby? (or look at their online shop)

They have loads of voiles and sari fabrics that would be perfect
