A crafty little house

It was my lovely nephews 1st birthday, so after reading this ladies blog and finding her pattern for making a fabric house, I gathered together some felt and got cracking....


Embroidered flowers and really big buttons, a felt tree and some super stitches from my Christmas present ( a brill sewing machine) on the roof....


four little friends, inspired by this fab book (another pressie) .......



lined with robot material, from a local shop......





a pull out felt garden complete with tree, flowers, cabbages and carrots and a little pond....




a little man and a bed complete with pillow and duvet cover for him to snuggle up in after a hard day gardening...


It all opens out flat as a play mat to play on. I had loads of fun making it especially the animals, it has inspired me to make all different ones, I have had requests already off my youngest for one for him.
We took the house to our nephews party and he loved it especially the fox who he kept kissing!
This week I also caught up with a lovely friend who I have not seen for 2 years, we had a fantastic catch up and much to my surprise and joy she has started crafting, I have encouraged her to start a blog to share her things, so when it is up and running I shall share it with you .
More cakes baked, more knitting club and a new pattern to follow, more games played and hot drinks in front of the fire and the snow has all but cleared here now just a few patches of ice and the odd flutter, spring is on its way and I am eager to get planting but the ground is still frozen, take care and keep warm x
