A Dollhouse: My First Sewing Project…

doll house by Aviena

I found tutorials for this little dollhouse on Pinterest from  a girl and a glue gun and UK lass in US . It reminds me of a similar house that my mom made for my brother, my sister, and myself.  Her’s was a little bigger and had more furniture.  She also sewed a different family for each of us: mice, rabbits, and bears.  I still have it and remember how much enjoyment her handmade gift gave me.  So, I wanted to try one of my own.

As this is my first sewing project, I will be forgiving towards my feelings about the final product.  For embellishments I used fabric glue to attach felt, fabric, lace, sequins, butterflies, and crocheted flowers.  Needing inhabitants for this tiny home, I choose to needle  felt ‘Mr. Bee’ and ‘Lady Bug.’   At 2 inches tall, each of them is perfect for tiny hands and a button has been attached to the bottom to prevent tipping over.

Lady Bug is chilling inside.  A crochet flower is the only piece of furniture and can serve as a bed, couch, or table.  She has lace curtains and butterfly chandeliers.

  1. Thank you so much! To be honest, I’m not sure how I feel about it. Your beautiful comment, however, makes me reconsider ‘kind of liking it’ to actually ‘liking it.’
