DIY Tent

DIY Tent


I have been slowly working on different things that I am planning to put into my little guys play/motor room that I hope to get together by this summer.  One thing I wanted to put in was a tent.  I'm not sure if I plan on putting it as a reading area or more just a play area yet but I know I wanted a tent.  I used to make tents with sheets all the time when I was little.  I loved having a tent so why not have one for him, right?  So I came across an idea on the blog post by Cakies that was my inspiration for a tent.  I did mine slightly differently than the way they did it, but it helped me with the foundation for starting my tent.  First, I needed my supplies.  Here is what I needed.


(4) 1" x 2" x 48" whitewood moulding
(3) 3/4" x 48" poplar dowels
drill with 3/4" spade bit (thank goodness our neighbor had one)
Measuring tape
(1) Twin Sized Sheet
Sewing Machine and thread (Very Simple Sewing I promise)
