Happy Campers Dome Tent 18" Doll Accessory Pattern

16 reviews   |  

Pack up and head to the woods or host a sleepover in the backyard ... either way you'll be set with the Happy Campers Dome Tent!

With plenty of room for two (and cozy space for three if you're BFFs!), there's no limit to the adventures you can have in this tent. This PDF tent pattern features a zip-up front door and covered screen windows with lots of room for customization ... you choose which walls have windows and doors! Dress it up by mixing and matching colors for the various panels or add Duck Tape for a playful look to your poles. There's even a tutorial included so you can make your own tent sack for easy storage and travel! (Poles will need to be stored separately.)

The tent is designed to be made from one economy 4x6-foot tarp, but the options are endless when you venture into the fabric store. With a finished base size of approximately 20x20 inches, there's plenty of room for sleeping. The tent interior height is approximately 11 inches and with poles, the entire structure is about 15 inches tall.

Recommended Fabrics:  tarp, rip-stop nylon, cotton duck

-1 yard rip-stop, cotton duck, denim or other medium to heavy woven fabric OR 1 4x6-foot tarp (yardage could vary depending upon your choice of wall & window configuration)

Great pattern

The pattern itself was great and went together easily - however the 1/4 inch flex piping does not exist where I am....so be prepared to jury rig an alternative :)

very cute tent

I recently tried out this pattern, and I aboluteley love it. The tent turned out very cute, and my DD loves to play with it. I like all the realistic details. For me the pattern and the instructions were easy to follow. Unfortunally I wasn't able to get any H/C Pex tubes which were bendable enough, so I ended upo using hazelwood, wich worked fine. for the fabric I used 3 of the blue I*ea bags, which is a good and priceworthy alternative. Our dolls love the new tent :-)

Happy Campers Dome Tent 18"

It was a good tent, I would recommend using a 4 pt T fitting at the top rather than overlapping two long pieces, other than that it is a good pattern and concept
