One of the most vivid memories I have of my childhood is playing in this Tee Pee that my mom made for me and my siblings. We wore that poor Tee Pee to it's end, so sadly it was not around to pass on. So of course I had to make my kids one.
I made this Tee Pee a while back, I am just slow getting it on here because well the kids play with it all the time. I used the Butterick pattern B4251 (found it at Joann's but also available on line) and it was such a great pattern to use. It looks over whelming, it will take a few days to do but it came together very easily. I found this fabric, again at Ikea because it was $2 a yard on clearance and it's heavy weight fabric. That is what you want, cheap because you need about 9 yards and durable fabric to hold up to the kids.....or in my case the husband that also likes to play in it :)
So keep an eye out for some great fabric, this would make such a great homemade Christmas gift for your kids!
