I have yet again been on Pinterest and seen more craft projects I want to complete. I fell in love with the felt playhouse shown below and decided that I would make Buster one of these for his birthday in May.
MrR agreed and so I set about measuring my table – (7ft long ekkk) and trying to work a design and what felt I need to order in what quantities. I found felt online and a large parcel arrived yesterday.
Today was spent cutting out shapes, fruit veg, a dog’s head, kennel, post box, tree, sun, baskets etc all ready to start sewing. I am already panicking about how much work it will be but as Buster saw the picture on my laptop one night and has asked for a tent with a door ever since I think it may be a good choice!
I’m hoping to have a tree with pickable apples and lemons on one side with a dog kennel on the other. On the front will be a house with window box and flowers as well as grass along the bottom and a post box on one side of the door. The remaining side fingers crossed will be a shop with a large window a canopy curtain and baskets containing fruit, veg, fish, meat and buns. I think I may have bitten off more than I can chew.
Buster’s birthday party (gruffalo themed) will be on the 05th May and the marathon walk is on the 7th so I think I may need a week off to recover after the 8th!
I will take photos and if all works out will blog how I did it!
