Bedroom Tent

Hey it's Amanda and I wanted to share the latest project I did. It involves sewing, but so simple. It had to be b/c I'm sewing illiterate and have love/hate (mostly hate) relationship with the machine!

In my 2.5 yr old's room, I noticed we had inadvertantly created a little nook between the wall and his bunk beds. And after noticing him playing down in the little space a few times I thought, I should create a fort or a tent. And all I needed was some fabric, some dollar something small tension rods (all from WalMart) and a good vibe from my sewing machine and I was set.

My dimensions needed 2 yards of fabric, which I just folded in half and sewed all edges. Then I measured where I wanted my tension rods and made two 'pockets' for them by simply sewing two more stitches.

So throw some pillows and blankets in there and we are good to go!


  1. What a creative idea Amanda! So the front panel can be raised, or do you just flip it up and lie it on top of the top panel so he can get in? I bet he loves it!

    1. I just flip it over and it rests on top, nothing fancy.

  2. Love this idea!!! Such a great use of space!!
