Supplies

Directions

  1. Get the sewing pattern for child's teepee below. Start by measuring your upper front panel. I like to turn the fabric over and draw with a pencil right on the fabric as it makes seeing the lines easier for cutting, plus you'll never see the lines.
  2. Cut along the lines, and you should end up with your upper front panel. photo 2
  3. Cut out your two lower front panels.
  4. Fold your fabric in half with the right sides together.
  5. Use your yard stick and pencil to draw the measurements according to the pattern. Make sure that the edge is NOT along a fold as we want to end up with two separate, opposite panels.
  6. Cut these out to get your two lower front panels. photo 3
  7. Now you have all the panels to for the front of the teepee. photo 4
  8. To make your side panels, fold your fabric in half with the right sides together.
  9. Using your yard stick, measuring tape and pencil, measure out one of your side panels.
  10. Make sure you measure on the fold. photo 5
  11. Once you've traced your measurements, cut along the marks and open up to see your full side panel. photo 5a
  12. Repeat this so you have a total of three side panels.
  13. On to hemming. Edges you need to hem are; the two inner straight edges of your front lower panels (photo 6), the bottoms of the two front lower panels, the bottom of all three side panels, the top of all three side panels and the top of the front upper panel. Fold in 1/2 inch and hem using a 1/4 inch seam. photo 7
  14. Now we need to match up the upper front panel and the lower front panels. Lay out all three panels so they match up to make the front of the teepee. Your front panels will overlap a few inches. photo 8
  15. Fold the bottom edge of the front panel back 1/2 inch and lay it on the upper edge of the lower panels. photo 8a
  16. This part takes some trial and error. You want the three panels to line up evenly, so you will have to shift them a little at time until the edges line up. photo 8b
  17. Once you've achieved this, flip the top panel down and pin the bottom edge of the top panel to the top of the lower panels and hem at a 1/4 inch. photo 8c and 8d
  18. Making the sleeves. I took one of the dowels (photo 9) and wrapped the fabric around it (photo 9a) accounting for an extra half inch for the the hem, I marked the width, approximately 6 1/4 inches. photo 9b
  19. I wanted the sleeve to be the same length as the sides of the teepee so I cut out 4 sleeves measuring 61 inches by 6 1/4 inches (photo 9c), turn the edges in 1/2 inch and sew a 1/4 inch.
  20. Attaching the sleeves to the sides. Take two side panels and lay them on top of each other with the right sides together. Fold one of the sleeves in half lengthwise with the wrong sides together and lay it in between the panels with all the raw edges aligned. photos 10 and 10a
  21. Pin and sew at a 1/2 inch making sure to back stitch at the tops and bottoms. Repeat this until all sides and sleeves are attached.
  22. Flip the teepee right side out and insert your dowels into the sleeves. photo 11
  23. Stand up right and wrap your cord around the intersecting point of the dowels to secure the frame. photo 12
  24. I thought decided it needed some ties to have the option to hold open the front lower panels, so I just cut 2 strips of fabric from the left overs (2 inch by 18 inch), and made a small slit in the side panel just enough to fit the strap though.
