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.
“Mr. Bee” and “Lady Bug.”
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.
