I posted a couple of weeks ago about my new endeavor to create a felt playhouse for Ava and Marley for Christmas. I actually made it! It turned out to be a MUCH bigger project than I expected. Wow, we are talking 1 am on Christmas eve sewing on the roof! Although I am not completely finished, I got the "base" done! Jake built the frame out of PVC pipe (such a good daddy!) and I fitted the house around it (definitely the hardest part for me :) ) I'll post more pictures of the sides soon, and some links for templates if anyone wants to pursue this project. To be honest, most of it was free-handed. Once I had the idea of the house, I just kept getting new ides of things I wanted to add. As you can see here, the front has a door, a mailbox, which I will be making letters to put in, and a window with window box. The window box has pockets sewn into it so the girls can put flowers (adding more soon) into it. More to come soon, just wanted to give a peek!See more pictures Here!
