fabric dollhouse

this one is all credit to my sister who found this adorable fabric dollhouse HERE (make sure to check out her flicker group.it’s AMAZING.)

here is the one she made for my daughter..

and the ones she made for her twins..

love the barn

And my little niecey was turning 5 and i really wanted to make her one…and it’s pretty easy to do..it’s just that mesh stuff (i used it for my earring holder) walmart had a package of 3 (I think it was 12x 24) and it was perfect) you cut out your pieces

and wrap them in batting (i hot glued) the tutorial says to use tape)

does this fabric look familiar? it’s the same as my craft organizer!

then you just sew all pieces together (with handle and elastics)

and you whipstitch two sides…

and add some buttons for the enclosure…

then the fun part of getting out your felt and hot glue and decorating it!!!!

 i made this cute little couch out of felt…
(i also made a bed for my daughter)

and i threw in a little polly pocket to complete the present!
such a fun little gift! make sure to go check out the how-to for complete instructions!

    I can't find the how to. Probably because i'm laying here in a sick induced stuper, but I looked through all the tutorials and looked at the web version and mobile and I can't find it.
    Thank you :0)

    What a great idea! I would have loved these as a child! I'm thinking of making a boy house, garage and barn for my 5 year old son. The possibilities are endless! Could you imagine a "Town" of these? Houses, post office grocery store church gas station?
    Thank you so much for the great inspiration! I will definately subscribe to you fantastic blog!
    Hope you are having a wonderful day!

  14. Enjoying The Adventure says:

    Please direct me to the "hot to" section of your blog, I can't seem to find it! 🙁 I love your doll house!

  15. Enjoying The Adventure says:

    "*how to" section opps!

  16. Tess McLaughlin Lundgren says:

    Bonnie, Just a thought, but if you make a town of them make them in graduated sizes so that some will fit inside others for storing purposes or you'll need a lot of space to store them I'd think. Great Idea. I love it.

  17. Jessica at Me Sew Crazy says:

    Kim – this is AWESOME! How am I not seeing this until just now (thanks to Pinterest). LOVE it!

    Pretty please add it into SewSet, this rocks! (Takes 2 minutes, I swear)

    Hope you are having a great morning!

  18. These are so cute! I am totally making one for my daughter! I think a gingerbread house will be really cute as the holidays get closer and is gender neutral!

  19. Brighton Creative says:

    I love this. I am going to make one for my friend's daughter for Christmas, I know she'll love it. We've shared it with the fans of Bamboo Baby on Facebook too 🙂


  20. I don't sew either, so exactly how did you do this with a glue gun? Would you post your own tutorial?

  21. Click on the word "HERE" in the description. It will take you to a page with the tutorial.

  28. I can’t find the how to, it looks easy enough but I would like the measurements and such, I think my daughter would love this for her Lalaloopies.

  29. I love love love the dollhouse! Great idea and beautiful craftmanship!!!

  30. Nice! You make this look so easy. I sew but crafts like this can be a challenge for me due to time constrain. Really would love to use this idea with flashcards I made for my girls. it can be her ‘quiet book’ on the go 🙂 Love it!
