Making a Tipi tent myself

Hi everyone,

So it’s been a while since I started working on my baby boy’s nursery and I had this idea to make a tipi tent for it. The main reason why I wanted to have one was the fact that I noticed that big sister liked tents and I thought it would be a great idea to have some elements in brothers room that she could play with, or in this case in. And when little brother is big enough they can play in it together.

Since it didn’t look to difficult I decided to make the tipi myself, and since I was already doing that I could easily try and record how I did it for other people who might be interested in making their own tipi tents as well. I hope that this video would at least be helpful for them in terms of how to make one of what you have to look out for when you want to try make one.

Here is the drawing I made to use for my tipi pattern to calculate how much fabric I would need and measurements for cutting the fabric panels for the tipi.

Since the fabric I used was 1,40 meters I could cut two panels next to each other from the fabric. I decided to buy 4 meters of this fabric so I was sure I had enough fabric. We made some cushions from the fabric we had left for inside the tipi.

I used 3 meters of ribbon and just cut it in 3 pieces of 1 meter.

And this is the final result of the tipi:

And here is the video about how I made the tipi:
