Well Folks, Its a good day. I am SUPER happy to announce that i have FINALLY finished Chloes birthday present!! I hummed and hawed over what to get her, and i really love giving the girls something i made them, that will (hopefully) last for a really long time and be sentimental and all that. I have seen these around the blogosphere and thought they would be WAY too much work and was even considering buying one... I am so glad i didn't. And after weeks of drowning in a huge pile of felt....I am thrilled with how it turned out and I just hope Chloe will love it as much as I do.....cause seriously, I wish I was 3 so I could play too :)
So without further Ado....`The cutest little Felt house on the block.
I know I know, you love it right?? ha ha well It's ok if you don't, just as long as my little girl does!
This is the front of the house (obviously) complete with flowers that come out and are fun and bendy.
If you are lucky enough to be invited inside....
You just might have a spot of tea....
Or celebrate some lucky someone's birthday!
This little cake stand might be my favorite piece of the whole house! :)
Oh and in case you were wondering the whole thing is just a big slip cover over the quilt frame I got from my mother in law.
I have seen many of the felt houses that are made to fit over a folding card table or even just a kitchen table....but I already had this laying around so it was perfect. And i can't take any credit for the idea I am a huge copier and got it from this talented lady.
Ok and back to the house:
Chloe loves her babies so of course we had to have a little nursery for her to take care of them. but don't look too closely, these panels on the inside of the house were an afterthought so sewing them on was a PAIN....and it was very sloppily sewn. But totally worth it! The "dresser" on the side is just some pockets to store all the baby's bottles and clothes or whatever a young mother might need ;)
And back outside I think I hear the mailman....
Delivering some love notes from the cute boy down the street ;)
And probably the cutest kitty I have ever seen.
(If I do say so myself) My favorite kind of pet....easy to clean up after, cheap to feed....and very loveable!
In the back "yard" we have a lush garden ready for harvest. With a big red basket to put everything in, and I think I will even make some oranges and lemons to give the tree some variety. and maybe some different vegetables if I am feeling ambitious.
And the garden wouldn't be complete without a watering can...and the most labor intensive corn on the cob on the planet!
And after your garden is all picked and ready to eat....you can cook it on you grill!! cause who doesn't love grilled veggies??
I made the spatula to cook with but decided to put the ribbon on it so I don't have to look for it every 5 minutes.
And this little guy lives in the apple tree just awaiting kisses and snuggles from smashley!!
And THERE you have it!! It was alot....and i mean ALOT of work. But I seriously love it. and no I won't make you one...ha ha ;)
