Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that the latest craze to hit the toddler playroom or bedroom is the teepee. I decided that I would try and create one using some ideas that I saw on Pinterest.
I purchased the canvas fabric last year when I was visiting the USA and got a 50% off deal at Hobby Lobby. I wanted to use a canvas type material as it was much stronger than cotton and I felt it would last up to the wear and tear of a toddler.
I'm not going to go into great detail on how I made the actual teepee, as there are hundreds of online DIY tutorials.
I did purchase 5 yards of the red and white chevron canvas and cut 4 sides according to the size of the poles that I purchased (60"). I procrastinated for months on starting this project, mainly due to fear of getting it wrong. Once I started, I realized that it really wasn't that hard.
My little grandson is going to have a "British" themed big boy bedroom so I wanted to incorporate some of the detail into the teepee using the British soldier cotton on the front opening panel as well as the matching reversible pillow.
