It was so fun for me to create this. I just looked at a few felt houses online and started cutting, stuffing, and sewing. This is definitely a love project and takes a lot of time but, I think it turned out pretty great!
Kinley's felt playhouse is basically a slipcover over a card table. It is great because it can all fold up and be put away whenever she is not playing with it.
This project definitely takes just as much time to cut out all the felt and think about how to place all the pieces as it does to sew together. Here are a couple pics of the sides of the house with just cut felt while still in the brainstorming phase before any sewing.
Here are the finished sides.
It also has over 40 stuffed, removeable pieces that she can pull off and put back on and play with! I hope she has a blast over the years looking through the windows, watering her flowers, putting mail in the mailbox, playing tea, etc.
I hope all of Kinley's friends will love playing with it too! It definitely got some use at Kinley's party :-)

Kinley's Felt Playhouse
I am SO excited to finally get to post Kinley's felt playhouse! I got the idea around Christmastime from my cousin Natalie to make Kinley a felt playhouse. At that time, I had never seen any before. Natalie showed me these on Etsy and soon after I started seeing them all over the blogworld! My friend, Allison, showed me this one on Homemade by Jill. I really wanted to use my new-found love of sewing to make one for Kinley for her first birthday.
