step-by-step make it!
You will need 5 x pieces of dowel (1.8m long x 19mm diameter); drill; 5m canvas or cotton drill fabric; 1m of rope.
STEP ONE Drill a hole through each piece of dowel, about 15cm down. Thread the rope through each of the holes and tie tightly to secure.
STEP TWO With the poles splayed into the teepee shape, measure the edges of each “triangle” side of the teepee. Draw measurements onto the back of fabric remnants – you will have five triangles. Cut out triangles allowing a 2cm border on each side (so you have a sewing allowance).
STEP THREE With fabric facing right-side in, sew triangles together along the long sides, leaving a hole in the top for the poles to poke through. Cut an opening in one panel to make the door. Hem the teepee cover.
STEP FOUR Turn the teepee cover right-side out and slip over the poles. Splay poles out to tighten and support the teepee cover. You could add ties to attach cover to poles if you want to.
