After many months of jealously seeing pets live it up in their own custom teepees, I finally broke and we made one for the kittens. I enlisted the help of Lee for this one!
It was super easy to make! Though a little rough around the edges (literally a fabric scrap), the boys really love it. We followed the tutorial and it was a breeze. We used dowel rods from Jo-Ann Fabrics, we had the fabric, instead of the string they suggest we used super long twist ties we had already.
I ended up using safety pins to hold back the flaps at the front, since the fabric is seersucker, it falls immediately. We definitely should have taken the stickers off the dowel rods before we tied them together, it makes it look sloppy. I also want to cover the twist ties with a hemp rope, they work well, but don’t have the look I’m going for.
Overall really easy to make and if you’ve also been dreaming of your cat slumbering in a tent- DO IT! And send us pics!
