It's finally here! My canvas teepee pattern!

This is the teepee pattern I use to create my canvas teepees with the three panel doorway. It is suitable for any type of solid color fabric, but it can be used with non-directional prints as well. If you are interested in making a striped or chevron teepee like you see in my shop, this pattern is NOT suitable for those fabrics. I use a completely different pattern for those teepees. That pattern will be available very soon.

This teepee pattern creates a teepee that is 50" square at the inside base (about 4"wider and deeper from pole end to pole end). It is just over 5 feet tall including the poles when it is set up. This teepee is an ideal size for any playroom, bedroom or family room. This pattern can be used to make the lower door panels from a different fabric, if you prefer.

This is an easy teepee pattern that should not take long to make. It is suitable for beginning sewers. You will be able to download the pattern instantly here upon purchase. NO waiting!! At the end of the checkout process, you will automatically get the download link so you can immediately print this pattern at home. You will also receive an email from Etsy containing the download link, and it will always be accessible from your item receipt which is contained in the "purchases" section under the words "your account" at the top of any Etsy page when you are signed in.

Note: This pattern does NOT include directions for adding a window.

You will need a pdf reader installed on your computer or device in order to view and print this pattern. If you don't have one, you can safely and easily install one for free at

4 1/4 yards cotton canvas or duck cloth. Denim and twill also work. Home decor fabrics are fine, but they should NOT have a directional print! Fabric must be 56" wide or wider.
Yardstick, chalk or disappearing marker
Wooden poles, dowels or PVC poles (measurements are supplied in pattern)
Leather lacing or other tie
Sewing machine

PLEASE NOTE: This pattern is given to you in DIMENSIONS! You will not be taping a bunch of paper together to create pattern pieces. You will be responsible for using your yardstick and chalk to draw straight line trapezoids onto your fabric. This is not at all difficult, and complete instructions and drawings are supplied in the pattern. However, if you need or want a pattern with pattern pieces, this is NOT the pattern for you.

This listing is for an instant download pdf PATTERN ONLY. It is NOT a completed teepee, it is a pattern.
