Happy birthday!

28 Apr

Once upon a time, in the shadow of a tall tree, there was a colorful little barn.

Inside the barn, lived a happy mixed pack of animals.

this is our home

Luckily for two-year-olds, they like to come out and play on the lawn.

Pattern:Fabric dollhouse tutorial

Fabrics: Amy Butler, Ikea (reinforcement is batting taped to thin cutting board pieces)

Reception: The barn got carried around, buttons were examined very carefully and assorted animals were tossed into the pan together with the felted food for a rather straightforward stew. A success all around!

    Aivan upea eläinkotinavetta! Mistä nuo eläimet olet löytänyt? Kyllä olis meidänkin tytöt tykänneet!

    I love the fabrics and the embroidery. It turned out great.

    And I really like that green / white backdrop – is that a picture or wallpaper?

    Thank you for the tutorial, UK lass! The backdrop is actually a Alexander Henry print stapled onto a frame. The name of the print is “The Grove” and if I recall correctly it was available in brown, too.
