Finished!

The felt playhouse is complete! Well, actually, I still need to sew one piece of velcro onto a piece of spinach, and make some birds for the birdhouse, but other than that, it is done. Yes, I know it is 2:00 am, but I had to post the pics for you, because I'm just so excited it's done!

The front:


The door and mailbox both open:


Side one (the birdhouse is a pocket thing, so birds can sit inside, and you can use the watering can to water the flowers, then pick them--and they have pipe cleaner in the stems to give them a little more stability (though I should've used more, probably). Also, you can open and close the curtains from inside):


The back/garden (you can pick all the veggies, or just water them with the watering can from the other side):


Side 2 (the bone comes off, and the door is a flap you can crawl through to get into the house, also you can pick the apples):


I think in all it took me just over 20 hours from first cut to complete, but I think it will have been worth it--I'm hoping the girls love it.

I can hardly wait to play in it with the girls. We will have so much fun!

You amaze me even though I've known you and your talents for your whole life.

I am of the opinion that certain words are overused, but in this case, the best word I can think of to describe the playhouse and your efforts and you is AWESOME!

OH I am so making one of these next year. I absolutely LOVE this idea! I also love the ribbon to tie the door open, such a good idea. Your girls are lucky to have you as their mama.
