PROJECT – TIPI

This was a really fun project! I love the idea of having a quiet spot on a sunny morning for the children to take a book and relax in…

Items used: fabric (mine is a thickish cotton), binding, bamboo poles, sewing machine.

The method was pretty basic & experimental. (There are a ton of different methods on line). I cut 4 panels the same size, cut out the entrance hole (I picked a hole to make it a little more exciting!) and sewed the binding around the entrance. I then pinned the edges and sewed these. Then right side up I sewed the panels together tucked them in on themselves and sewed another seam wide enough for the poles to slot in. The top of my tipi is pretty snug so I haven’t needed to attach strings to tie.

I think I will be making a few of these to dot around at quiet time…
