How did these teepees come along?
I'm about 80% finished on one for James (for his birthday on Saturday). I just need to sew the 6 panels together, I've had had to pack it away and get ready for work this afternoon darnit! I've taken hours to make it, I've bound each top & bottom edge beautifully if I may say so myself
I've sewn in ties to tie the door closed or open. It's been a bit of a mission as I've wanted to size it to fit cot innersprung mattress that we kept as the kids love playing with/sleeping on, so the panels are not all the same. Here's hoping my maths is right and it works (don't tell my students if I stuff this up
I've just bought 6x 1.8 m bamboo stakes ($1.60 each), if they don't last the distance I'll pay for the dowels, but the 1.8m whatever thickness I saw the other day were $5.40 each and don't feel that much sturdier as the bamboo stakes. I looked at PVC pipes as per another blog but that was upwards of $10 per metre and only 2 m long so there would be patching required etc.
Argh, must get ready for work. Shall hopefully be back with a photo in the next day or two...
