I have been wanting one of these hoop tents (for my daughter of course) for a while now. I love this one from The Land of Nod, but I really didn't think I could convince my husband that my 3 year old needed a $150 hanging tent, with a $69 floor cushion...
So I started looking up tutorials online, I didn't think this would be to hard to replicate. I'm not an expert seamstress and I needed something easy. Easy Like with diagrams, and small words... and arrows pointing to things telling me what to do.
There are quit a few tutorials on how to make these but this one was by far the easiest, and had everything I needed, by that I mean diagrams, and arrows...
Since I was trying to do this on the cheap, I decided to brave
the gates of Hell Walmart and get supplies:
2 twin flat sheets
1 hula hoop
and a cheap .97 banner I found in the party section
Seriously this project was so easy, I'm pretty confident if I can understand it, then anyone can.
Here is our new hoop tent!
I kind of LOVE it!
