Felt Playhouse!!

Jaxtin's Playhouse is finished!!! I have to say this was the biggest project I have ever done & probley the funnest! I spent hours & hours researching  ideas.. I wanted the playhouse to not only be fun but to teach jax different things too.. I didn't use any patterns just borrowed alot of ideas & kinda winged it ;) Total cost was about $50.00. I made the Playhouse to fit our counter height kitchen table. The table measures 56x56. I purchased about 9 yards of felt at Joann's & I have a ton of leftovers. I love how it turned out & the look on jaxtin's face was priceless!! Here is a list of the websites I found ideas on.. I hope I didn't leave any out.. If I did please email me & I will be sure to add you to the list. I will post some more pictures soon.

Jaxtin's Market..... Has a Apple Barrel that all the apples are velcro so they can be removed & moved to the tree. The tree has flowers that are also attached with velcro. I'm planning on making some lemons, Pears, Christmas lights, ect It also has a crate that holds vegetables.

The Bank.... Has an ATM with a slot & money that is velco. It also has a door and 2 topiary trees that have velcro.

The Gas Station.... has a gas pump that is removable so he can fill up his cozy coop car that is still an inside it has removable tools & removable oil cans that are all attached with velcro & a window.

The Post Office... Has a big blue Mail box with a slot to the inside & our house numbers, a small mail box that he can put the letters through the inside and a  mail bucket with 3 letters.

Hey Stef - This turned out AWESOME! I'd love to make Alliyah one but am wondering if I should take on such a HUGE project! How many hours do you think you spend on the cutting, sewing & putting together?

How are you guys doing? Hope all is well for you!

I'm very impressed! Working with felt can be tricky (at least for me) and all those pieces, WOW!
