Fabric Dollhouse Tutorial

So, um, 8 months later (yes, I'm hanging my head in shame) I'm finally getting around to it. This was the barn: This time around I wanted a smaller, lighter version, that my kids could carry around. The barn was made of plywood, covered in batting and fabric. For this version I'm replacing the wood with plastic canvas (the plastic sheets sold at craft stores for doing cross-stitch on) . What you will need: ..........:: Fabric for the interior: 9 inches by 21 inches and two pieces 6 inches by 9 inches (I'm being generous with the seam allowances here, as the actual size needed will depend on which batting you use) ..........:: Fabric for the exterior: (same as interior) 9" x 21" and two pieces 6" x 9" ..........:: 2 10.5"x 13.5" sheets of plastic canvas (I used #10 mesh) ..........:: Batting / wadding ..........:: Duct tape / insulation tape (optional) The pieces should fit together like this:

Pattern For Fairy Houses - McCall's Patterns. How To Make A Fabric Dollhouse Video Tutorial. Felt Fairy House Tutorial. This little fairy house was an impromptu sewing project for two sweet girls (sisters) we were lucky enough to meet for a play date this afternoon.

Felt Fairy House Tutorial

In mind was this fairy house from Imagine Childhood. Ours was made from this felted wool sweater, some other pieces of felt, a tiny bit of yarn, some buttons, and a few flowers from a lei kit. It was a great hit with the girls, and of course it was super-frugal (and fun) to make! First, cut out your pieces of felt from a felted wool sweater.

There are so many things you CAN do – the options were overwhelming. I love watching my daughter play with her cousin’s doll house, though, and I thought a version just for her would be perfect. She’s a little young for the tiny, intricate pieces. PLUS, we have an airplane trip coming up. With all things considered, I finally put it all together into one project - I had so much fun with the details – and could honestly make a ton more because it was so much fun to put together. Before you start assembling anything, you’ll need to cut out squares for your walls and triangles for the roof.

Make A Castle Out Of Felt & Cardboard

This castle and tower are made of felt, embroidery thread, scrap cardboard and an oatmeal canister. I got my felt on sale. My total cost: four dollars! Assuming you already have a 50 cent skein of embroidery floss and the scrap cardboard on hand, you too can make this for almost nothing! How recession friendly is that?! The lighter colored castle in the photos is about eight years old and has stood up unbelievably well over time. You will need about one yard of felt. Fold the felt in half lengthwise with the fold at the bottom.

Put a few basting stitches in the two layers of felt to hold them steady and start cutting the turrets all along the top. You are going to cut five and a half inch sections of cardboard to fit into each pocket you've sewn.
