The Teepee, indian tent for children, made by me or... by you!

Hey! How are you?
I'm here again to show you the last big, big, big project! My Teepee!



Ideal for children, for four-legged friends and adults. Parents can play and discover with their children an exceptional people, the native north Americans of the Great Plains, in which the kids were pampered, spoiled, protected and free.
Through the game they learned the arts, the technique, the traditions, the collective culture. Even today, with this tent, the game can be fun and learning at the same time.

What is the particularity of this project?

First of all its design, simple, clean and respectful of the original teepees.
The structure is composed of 6 bamboo canes tied together. The bamboo is light, durable and beautiful to look at, recalls the irregularity of the original rods. A hexagonal support placed between the canes ensures stability to the structure and keeps the cover always well taut. The teepee stability is essential for safe play and securety!
The tent cover is made from a single piece of fabric sewn by hand and closed on the front by wooden pins. A door is rolled over the passage that can be opened at the base to facilitate the entry of the little ones or simply to widen the opening.



The second peculiarity is that I can make this tent to order or leave you part or all the fun: I studied a tutorial in detail to accompany you in the creation of a beautiful Teepee for your children's bedroom, to play Indians in the garden, on the beach, or wherever you want! A step by step tutorial with numerous clear and detailed pictures to sew the tent and make the structure or while you sew the tent I can make the structure for you. What do you think?


You find the Teepee Pattern on my Etsy shop Johandmadedesign with more details about it in the listings descriptions.


Last important feature is that you can choose between three different sizes (Small, Medium and Large) and between three different materials for the cover (if you choose the tent made by me):

• unbleached cotton, light and cheap,
• taupe-colored linen, a medium thickness and fresh fabric,
• unbleached, heavy and resistant canvas.
