Fabric Doll Houses


Here are the Fabric Doll Houses that I made for the girls for Christmas (finally). 

I think they turned out way cute, but I am biased. I used THIS tutorial for the pattern. It was easy and pretty quick to make. I just found out that she got this pattern published in a book, "One-Yard Wonders" which sounds like my kind of book. I may just have to splurge on that one. 


Anyway, they open up to a cute little play area. 



Perfect for little *bear families to live.






But do you want to know what my favorite part is?

The handles.

My mom's awesome Bernina (which sews like a dream and I am soooo envious of) does some pretty awesome stitches.

Like...

Daisies...



and even BOWS!!!


So, cute. The best part is watching Sarah tote them around the house and play with the little bear families. I just love it! Hopefully it is something that the girls will treasure for years to come.

and Sarah's




*PS - Thanks Mom & Dad for the Bears, it made the houses perfect!!

They look great - I love those fabrics and those stitches are ridiculously cute. Why doesn't my sewing machine do cool stuff like that?
