Felt Play House

Have you ever made some thing that you just LOVE? I mean, I am so excited about how this turned out! I had visions of what this would turn out to be and they were not as good as this! Not to toot my own horn (toot toot!) but, I am in love with this play house! I made it for my son's 2nd birthday. I got my inspiration from Jill at Homemade by Jill

Let me give you a tour:


Welcome to the front door.


Complete with a mail box...

...that opens and already has mail in it!


Let's stroll around to the side, with a tree and apples ready to be picked!


On to the back, where the tree and apples continue and you meet a friend Mr. Blue Bird.


Feel free to pick a basket of apples!


Come on around the the other side and stop to smell the roses!
It is NOT too girly, since one of the roses is blue!


Go ahead and pick a flower, and put it back for hours of fun... or use the flowers as drum sticks like my son likes to do!

Here is a close up of my MITERED edged Window... something a Carpenter would truly appreciate! I am very happy with how the windows turned out... I wish the ones on my house looked this good!


Another look at the apple tree.


Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to visit soon!

Of course, I wish that I cute pictures of my Little King playing in his new house... but as soon as I took the camera out, he had a meltdown. But, he does love it and so do I!

CUTE! Very very cute! You did an awesome job. I bet your son just loves it. One of those is on my long crafting to do list. I gotta buy a card table first. LOL.

Wow! What an amazing fort! I wish I had the talent and patience to make something like that! I haven't tried any felt projects yet, but seeing your cool ideas makes me want to try!
Good job!

That has to be the cutest... and most detailed house I've ever seen! I love that you made it have extra activities instead of just a plain house. I LOVE it!
