Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cut in a straight line.
  • Sew a straight line

Pattern Description:

Did you grow up building forts out of sheets? It was a lot of fun, but clean up was awful - who wants to refold? Not me! So make this incredible (and portable) teepee out of a TWIN SHEET!. When the kids are done, just fold up and stick it in the closet or under a bed.

This is not a complicated pattern, but it's a lot of straight stitching. So just be ready for that. These also look really cute with some fabric designs fused to the outside!

You'll get complete directions including a simple way to mark and cut the sheet. This usually takes confident beginners from 3 to 4 hours to make.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • About 5ft tall and about 42" wide (at the bottom).


  • Twin sized sheet

You Will Also Need:

  • PVC poles
  • PVC caps
