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. 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.

Look for other patterns in our Happy Campers line to complement your tent!

    Nice pattern! If you want your dolls to be protected from mosquitos, make sure you get the real mosquito netting - the stuff from the fabric store won't cut it. 🙂 This is not a quick item to make and it takes a lot of thread with all the finishing of seams, but the result is cute and very realistic looking.

    I used a teflon presser foot to sew the tarp and it was very easy; so empowering! I'll probably make some specialized bags and other gear from tarp in the future!
