Our tee pee tent sewing tutorial is a simple sew - perfect for pretend play, summer fun, beach trips, photo props, Christmas and birthday gifts, play dates, dress up, and just because. This play house sewing tutorial is an ideal project for recycling duvet covers, curtains, and sheets> it turns into a fort for boys and a make believe play house for princess girls.
The tee pee is supported by PVC pipes; when finished playing, simply pull the PVC pipes together, and your tent will easily fit in a small corner of a closet.
1 1/3 yards of fabric x 4 (There are five panels total, but you will use remnants for the door)
1 yard of fabric to make the tubes to hold the PVC poles
Drill & 1/4" drill bit
Two 20" sections of ribbon or twine for the door ties (optional)
One 24" section of rope, twine, or ribbon to connect the PVC pipes at the top of the tee pee
Five PVC pipes that are 3/4" wide and 5' long.
Five 3/4" rubber stoppers or crutch tips (optional)
Due to the large amount of fabric required to make this tee pee, consider upcycling old curtains duvet covers, and/or sheets. Please note that this tutorial does not include or need pattern pieces. It includes a measurement chart and photo driven guide for all the pieces you need.
Please note: PVC pipes come in 10' sections, and most hardware stores will cut the PVC pipe for you in the store. The pipes should cost less than $10 total

Welcome to the Little Lizard King sewing shop. We enjoy crafting, embroidering, and sewing for friends and family. Our daughter and her little lizard friends are the inspiration for most of the items you will find.
Soon after having a child, we quickly discovered how easy, enjoyable, and inexpensive it is to make custom clothing for our daughter and her friends. After a couple requests and some kind compliments, we decided to start making step-by-step instructions and sewing patterns to sell to other little lizards as well.
Our goal is to teach you to create custom clothing for your children and their dolls at a fraction of boutique prices.
You are more than welcome to set up shop and sell the items you create using our tried and true designs. Little Lizard King illustrated patterns and tutorials are easy to follow and filled with detailed photos to guide you through every step of the process.
