felt playhouse

I'm so excited to finally post this project!  Welcome to apartment 9 ...

 
So far, these flowers in the window box are Oscar's absolute favorite.  They last about 2 seconds in the box before he has plucked them all, and then drags them around all day.  The stems have a pipe cleaner in them to give them support, and as a bonus, makes them satisfyingly bendy.

A close second favorite for Oscar is passing items through the mailbox.  In, out, in, out ... he could do it all day long.
 
Woof, woof.  We are not really dogs-in-the-house kind of people, but we love seeing them when we go on walks.  I think this faux-Sharkey makes the perfect pet. 
 
I enlarged and modified this french bulldog template on marthastewart.com to make the little guy.
 
 
The animals on this side of the house were also made with borrowed templates.  The squirrel is from matsutake, and the owl is my interpretation of the Petit Collage template on marthastewart.com.

I added this mesh (formerly a laundry bag) to the windows over the weekend after Oscar made repeated attempts to jump through the window panes.  So for those of you interested in making one of these yourself, consider either making the windows small or adding some kind of mesh/vinyl/etc.  I almost did clear vinyl, but I wanted to keep the air flowing inside.  A felt house can get stuffy!

 
Apple picking time!  I tried to make this tree look pretty similar to the one found in Oscar's quiet book.  He has been enjoying picking apples and can even put them back on the tree.  I think I'm going to make lemons for the tree for a little variety. 
 
On the back of the house, you'll find a big garden, ripe for harvest.  The soil has many pockets to fill with veggies (with room to grow as I make more).

 
I think the corn on the cob is my favorite part.  It was my brilliant basket-weaving mom's idea to weave the  white and yellow felt together for the corn cob.  Too cute!  It slides easily in and out of the husk.


Hungry for a BLT?  We have lettuce ripe for picking.

I could probably write up a month of posts on this playhouse, but I'll try to stick with just a few more. 

UPDATE:  I have posted some playhouse templates here and here.  See the felt playhouse Q&A post for frequently asked questions on the playhouse.  Thanks!

Michelle said...

So that is probably the cutest thing ever! I hope you don't mind that I am going to totally rip that idea for my son's first birthday. It's in May, so I guess I should start working on it now huh? I am sure he'll love it, just as much as Oscar loved yours!

Jess @ Floralshowers Craft Blog said...

Jennifer said...

SO SO cute!!! Please post the templates and tell us how you 'hang' it!

Sandi and Jason Rodriguez said...

I absolutely love this!!! How did you make it stand up? Also, did you buy large sheets of felt or attached a few pieces together?

Avery said...

INCREDIBLE! I'm so impressed - and maybe inspired!

Brittany said...

I love how interactive everything is. Great play house~

Jenn said...

THAT is so amazingly cute! Makes me sad that my girls are too big to make them one. I guess I can store the idea away for in the far away future when I grand kiddos to craft for.

Emily said...

incredible! my husband is in awe as well! this is now on my to do list before our March birthday party. You have a fantastic blog, and I've been spying on it for the past year. Since i've begun crafting many items from your project list, my 86 year old grandmother has become inspired and just last week had her sewing machine repaired. So thank you, thank you!

Jill said...

Sandi -

I used felt that I purchased by the yard.

It is just a slipcover that fits over my kitchen table.

Rachael said...

This is completely amazing!! I love it. And how perfect that it's inside so Oscar can be warm and have fun like he's outside.

Kenton and Marianne Ogg said...

Can I please have help picking my jaw up off the ground!?!?! I am completely blown away! When do you have time for sewing? My baby is 10 months and I feel like I don't have enough hours in the day for everything to get done. OUTSTANDING!!! I hope Martha gets to see it! She would be proud!

Prairie Girl said...

oh my goodness. oh my goodness. oh my goodness.

I love it! And I can't wait to make one for my playhouse obsessed almost two.

I'm going to try to get one done for Christmas. Wouldn't it be cute to make velcro Christmas lights to "hang" around the roof or on the tree. Or how about a snowman to "build" on the side of the house.

You are an inspiration! Can't thank you enough and look forward to the templates!!

jenni said...

seriously??? unbelievable! my mouth is still on the floor at your detail!

Peggy said...

This SO cute! I can't wait till more grandchildren come along so I can to make one for him/ her lol. I LOVE your blog :-)

Becky said...

My mom made me one of these when I was a girl and I am planning on making one for my son's second birthday (in February). Yours turned out ADORABLE. Great job.

Kenny and Teresa Wolfe said...

I second what all the other ladies said!! My daughter is turning one next month, so I've got plenty of time to get this project done before she's two which I think will be the perfect age for this playhouse!

Prairie Girl - love your idea about Christmas lights & a Snowman to "build"!!!

Yes, I can see I will get completely carried away with this one!!

Thanks so much for sharing all your wonderful ideas!

Jenette said...

That is the coolest thing I have ever seen! Good work!

Emily said...

That is great!! I love all the detail you had put into this idea.

What does the top look like?

Thanks!!

The Harris Family said...

I absolutely love this! It is even better then I imagined.

Jennifer @ The Craft House said...

There are absolutely no words to describe the sheer genius that went into this! It is amazing!

Lemons would be cute for the tree!

heldam said...

This is amazing!! You are so creative! I am inspired to make one for my litle ones. Our table is round so I'm thinking of making like a rolling scene with interactive activities like you have done. Thanks so much.

Amy said...

Jill,

You are AMAZING! And that little man of yours is absolutely adorable. What a lucky little guy, I'm sure he is going to be having hours and hours of fun in his felt playhouse!!!

~Amy :)

Southern Living: Preppy Style said...

I am so going to try and make something like this! I LOVE IT!!! Great job!

Cole's Corner said...

Wow! Like everyone else, I LOVE this project.

I am going to attempt making some for Christmas.

How long did it take you to complete?

Jill said...

Natalie - I used polyester felt, which really cut down the cost for this project. Wool felt would have been dreamy, but way too $$$. I only spent about $30 total.

Cole's Corner - I work during my baby's naps and in the evenings, so I usually have about 2 hours at a time (give or take). It probably took about 4 hours to get all my pieces designed, measured and cut. I think I did about 18 hours of sewing over the course of 3 days to finish up.

Lana said...

This is absolutely inspired! I can't wait to do my own version!

Carly said...

thank you for sharing! this is adorable. every kid should have their own felt playhouse!

Anonymous said...

You have GOT to be kidding me!!! That has to be coolest thing I have ever seen. You are amazing. Have you considered making and selling them? Absolutely amazing!

Stephanie said...

Joann Fabrics has a great sale going, 50% off felt--just stocked up for my own attempt! Thanks for posting pictures and all the neat extra details!

Deb said...

WOW!!! You've done an amazing job! I'm inspired to make one for my own little guy. Thanks for the details, too...huge help!

lisa said...

I just have to tell you that I heart that garden! How precious! I think this is my favorite of all the things I’ve seen you make so far. I would love to see how you made the flowers too. Good job! Oscar is extremely cute and lucky to have such a crafty Mom!

Kathleen said...

Danielle said...

This is so great!! I love it! Did you have trouble sewing it together because of how big it was? The last big thing I made was a slipcover and it almost killed my machine. I would like to try this though. I hope you post templates soon!

Anonymous said...

This is the cutest most amazing thing!!

KT said...

Kaitlin said...

This is really incredible!! I'm really excited to try and make one for my niece for Christmas. Could you tell me how much felt you used to make this? I can't wait to place an order so I can get started! Thank you so much for your tutorials - I love your projects!

Amanda:) said...

Jill you are amazing! I have been following your projects and admiring for the last year, but this one by far tops them all! good for you!

Erin said...

woo! you did a lot of thing similarly to how my might-never-actually-be-sewn playhouse looks in my head. I was planning on a barn with a garden and an apple tree. looking forward to your templates to save myself some work! now, want to do a pig and a cow template for me?? ha!

ashley said...

uh-mazing! now i'm really wanting to make one for my baby girl! such a great gift! :)

StakerSensations said...

Jill-
I want to do this for my sons for christmas one question. How many yards of felt did you use and where did you purchase it from?

O. said...

WOWWWZERS! You never fail to surprise me! amazing job and also amazing for working the fine motor skills! So clever, bravo

D and A said...

HOly cuteness! And you can just fold it up to put away! I'm so making this for my son for his 1st birthday! Good thing he's only 3 months!! LOL. Big fan Jill!!

Anonymous said...

My mother made one of these "card table" houses out of regular material exactly 31 years ago for her then, 1 year old grandson, my son. I kept it and now get it out and put it in its prominent place in our FAMILY ROOM for our now, aged 2 and 3 1/2 and 8 month grandchildren (Mom's great-grans; she also lives with us so she gets to see her greatgrans enjoy the fruit of her labors! What an added blessing!) Seeing the additions you have made to the basic house are just unbelievably creative.....I'm now going to add "veggies" and fruit trees and a mailbox to this 31 year old craft.
ALL YOU LADIES OUT THERE SEWING FOR YOUR CHILDREN....IT IS WORTH IT WHEN YOU THINK YOU ARE NOW MAKING MEMORIES AND SOMETHING THAT WILL LAST FOR THE NEXT GENERATION WHEN THE WII'S AND BABY EINSTEINS ARE BROKEN AND NO LONGER REMEMBERED!
Thanx for the inspiration...AGAIN!

Crystal said...

Holy Cow!! I stumpled upon your blog and after seeing this house I thought "who is this lady?" Oh my gosh!! I have so many questions! Please post your tutorials. I would love to do this as my boy's christmas present. How did you get this to stand? Is it over a table? Where do you buy felt big enough?

Carol said...

I'm your fan!

Melanie said...

It's a little hard to tell, but did you line the inside of the felt house with anything? Or is it just the underside of the felt you used for the outside? It's such a great house that my 4 yo wants me to make him one now!

Rachel said...

Wow! I totally love it! What an awesome idea!

Dewey Dot said...

This is a work of art! and so inspiring! I haven't seen one this interactive before and I Love It! I've wanted to make one of these for a while now, but I think you've inspired me to tackle it for Christmas. Hopefully you'll get some tutorials up in time for me :-) Thanks for sharing!

Christie - Childhood 101 said...

That is simply amazing. Would love to know how long it took and what is supporting the house (frame wise)

Pink & Green Mama said...

It turned out adorably!! I adore the veggie garden and the doggie.

I think I'd play with the mail box too!
Does he have felt letters with velcro stamps for it? You could make felt envelopes with stiff felt letters and stamps that could be switched out.

G. said...

that's the most amazing thing I have ever seen! A lot of love obviously went into it. You are so creative, and Oscar looks very happy in his new playhouse. :)

I was reading and how do you set it up, do you throw it over a card table or is it actually structured to stand that way?

I would love to know how much it cost to make it? Trying to decide if it it is much cheaper than buying one? Because they are so labor intensive.

I don't have words to adequately express how impressed I am. "Wow" just doesn't do it!

Jill- you are such an inspiration, thank you! My felt arrived today and I'm so excited to make one for my daughter. Did you double layer your walls or at least around the door? I'm wondering if I need to line mine to help it hold up. I'd love to hear if you lined yours and how the doorway is holding up.

Thank you, thank you!
