Fabric Toy House

Thursday, August 2, 2012
In case you missed it, this is what I guest posted awhile back at Paul et Paula.

Hello Paul & Paula Readers!  I am so ecstatic to be guest posting here on my favourite international design blog.

My name is Heidi, and I am a Canadian stay-at-home mom who blogs at Elegance & Elephants, a place where I share my handmade endeavours.  While I dabble in many homemade projects from cooking to crafting, my greatest passion lies in sewing garments and toys for my children Anja (1 1/2 years) & Tobias (4 years).

I recently came across this wonderful tutorial for a little fabric toy house, and I knew I just had to make for my little ones.  The instructions are very clear, and the project came together quite nicely once I got all my materials together.

Most importantly, both children love the final result, and have spent much time enjoying the new little home for their toys.

I have never done hand embroidery, but took this as an opportunity to give it a try.  
The pattern is by Sarah Jane Studios.

An added feature that my children adore, is the Little Einstein characters I painted on wooden doll pegs I bought at my local craft store.  

Thank you so much for having me here today.  
If you are interested in more DIY projects like this one, or tutorials 
and ideas for sewing children's clothing, 
I hope you will stop by Elegance & Elephants, and say hello!
