Home Sweet Home

So as many of you know I have the patience of a 2 yr old, especially when it come to crafts and new projects. After staring and staring at the tutorial of the plush doll houses I decided to drag up our ancient sewing machine and see if I could make a house for the girls.

I would like to say that on my first try I made a perfect house, however, the sad reality is that the first house was only suitable for AJ who wouldn't care that it was lopsided, the handles were an afterthought, and you couldn't tell that it had a roof! The second house though, was much much better. Actually I am very proud of it since my sewing skills are pretty basic and the only reason I was able to work the machine was thanks to my hubby who knew how to thread the needle properly, lol!

Here is the house I made for Gabby's Kokeshi dolls:



*The tutorial for this is here! Don't forget to check out the link to the Flickr group here to get some great ideas for your own house!!!
