fabric travel doll house

I recieved One Yard Wonders  by Yakers and Hoskins for Christmas this past year. I have flipped every page about 100 times, put post-it-notes on the projects I wanted to complete.This this darling is the first project I have completed, a fabric doll house, it is apporperiate for Livy right now as she plays with Polly Pockets all the time! I just love the way it turned out, and I think that Livy does too, she has played with it nonstop for days!

This is the outside of the house when it is all buttoned up, 5 buttons hold the sides together. The walls and roof are padded with batting around plastic grid. (I am not sure that is the technical name for it-the plastic sheets you cross stitch yarn with...)

The super cute and fun fabric I used.

The house open, I used felt in the inside (I have tons  left over from the felt house I made)-the girls (redhead  PP and brown haired PP-they don't have real names as Livy changes them all the time) are loving their new home!

This was a fun project for me and so happy the way it turned out. At first I was not really sure what it would look like but after reading the directions, and again, and again, I just started sewing and it all came together.  I am making PJ a barn, I thought these would be great for vacation, dinners out, or just a little quite playtime.
