FELT PLAY HOUSE

I'm so happy to announce that Ashtyn's felt play house is FINISHED. Welcome to the little blue house on 1116 Cutieville Lane. Shall we take a tour?

Ding dong, is anyone home? The porch light is on....a special delivery for Ashtyn....could it be a letter from Grandma?

 Usually the front door is open because friends are always welcome....and mommy's and daddy's too.

Lets head on around to the side of the house where a fresh spring breeze dries some clothing  hanging out on the clothes line. Once the clothes are dry put them into the laundry basket.

Wait a minute, I hear some sniffing on the other side of the house....who could it be? It's Ashtyn's beloved Boston Terrier, Derby, smelling the spring flowers.


Now lets head to Ashtyn's garden in the backyard. I think I smell the sweet aroma of red juicy apples.

Once we're done picking apples, lets harvest some fresh veggies like lettuce, carrots and pumpkins.

The pumpkins are looking great. They will make perfect Jack-o-lanterns come October.
Thanks for visiting Ashtyn's cozy little house. Please visit again soon.

I had so much fun making this charming little house for Ashtyn. It took many hours of hard work but I'm happy to say it turned out exactly how I had envisioned it. It's all sewn...no glue used. As you can see in the pics, I used velcro to allow the fruit to become removable. We didn't have a suitable table for this playhouse so we built the frame from PVC pipe. In the end I like how it makes the playhouse transportable and easily stored away. Although I think that will be easier said than done.

A big thanks to Fawnda over at Fireflies and Jellybeans for doing her five week Felt House Along. She got me motivated to tackle a large yet very rewarding craft project.

  3. By the way, it was obviously a lot of work but you did a great job. Wow. Lucky little Ashtyn will spend many hours playing in her cute cozy colorful playhouse for years to come. And you'll never have to worry about where to store it like you would a plastic or wooden playhouse.
