Kids Teepee Play Tent Sewing Pattern, Suitable for all fabric prints

$ 8.00

Use this pattern to make a teepee using fabric that has a non-directional print (see below).

This is an INSTANT DOWNLOAD pattern. You will receive a download link to the pattern immediately after purchase.

Although this teepee pattern is suitable for chevron fabrics and directional prints, it can be used for ANY fabric because it uses a facing to create the door panels. 

PLEASE NOTE: This pattern is given to you in DIMENSIONS! You will not be taping a bunch of paper together to create pattern pieces. You will be responsible for using your yardstick and chalk to draw straight line trapezoids onto your fabric. This is not at all difficult, and complete instructions and drawings are supplied in the pattern. However, if you need or want a pattern with pattern pieces, this is NOT the pattern for you.

This pattern creates a teepee that is 50" wide by 50" deep at the base. It uses 6 foot wooden poles, and it is 5 feet tall when it is assembled. This is an easy to sew teepee that is completely portable and easy to set up and take down when it is completed. Great for the bedroom, yard, beach, play room, anywhere!

Another note: Don't worry about matching fabric patterns! It is virtually impossible to match patterns other than stripes or other straight lined fabric patterns when you are making a teepee. The patterns do NOT need to be matched at the seams.
