Last week I saw this online! Isn´t it cute?
Immediately I thought that it would be perfect as a gift for my little niece and goddaughter who turns three tomorrow.
But there was no time to order the fabric and pattern online and wait for 4 to 6 weeks for it to arrive.
So I thought that maybe I could do it myself.
Do you remember those fabrics from wednesday?
I added some appliqué and sewed an inner and an outer house.
Although I used strong fusible interfacing, I had some problems with the stability of the building.
Fortunately I had leftovers of thin plywood (around 1/8") from building dollhouse furniture.
After reinforcing the house with the wood pieces, it now stands nicely.
You can use it as a bag, or you can unbutton one side and fold it down to use it as a little doll house.
My niece loves Hello Kitty, so this is a little Kitty home, complete with a patio and a lawn.
In her home she has a plant, a lamp, a picture of a little boy with a pig, a striped rug and a clock.
On the outside there are flowers, an apple tree and a birdhouse.
The size of the house is approx. 6" x 8", and 7" high. It was more challenging to construct than I thought, but it was fun, too. I will let you know if she likes it!
