    I made this house out of felt for my granddaughter's second birthday. It was a lot of fun to make. I used an embroidery machine to do most of the appliqués. It was pretty time consuming, but it was worth every second because she loves it! Sorry about the quality of the pictures. Here's a few more close ups:Name:  image.jpg

    Love your playhouse. Looks like it is mostly made of felt. A couple of questions.

    Did you have a pattern for the basic house or did you design it?
    Did you use PVC as the framing structure?
    Could you describe the fabrics you used?

    Great job!!!!

    That is sooooo cute! You are very creative and did a fantastic job on this project. What a lucky little girl to get to play in a wonderful home that grandma made.

    The little house is precious! It sure does look like a lot of work, but it was a labor of love for the DGD.
