A Playhouse Plan That You Can Sew

Filed Under: Crafts, Small Spaces

Though kids can make forts out of anything, this easy-to-make felt playhouse plan from fab blogger Homemade by Jill is sure to be a big hit. A little safer than wood models and definitely more affordable than commercial versions, this felt cottage also turns any table into a playhouse.

Playhouse plans run the gamut from time-consuming to seriously difficult, which is why I was so excited to see this felt version by blogger HomemadeByJill. Not only is it a relatively simple project to sew (just join lengths of felt to create an open-bottom cube, then cut out doors/windows and applique details) but it also is space-savvy, since it's designed to fit over an existing table. Just pack it up when playtime is over. Here are more details:

Check out the cute little window box, near a window covered in open mesh (for ventilation). The door can open and shut with velcro tabs. Love the scalloped trim at the top.

A view of the side, where you can see another mesh-covered window. Three-dimensional apples on the tree and the seriously adorable owl add whimsy. For the playhouse plan and how-to, visit Jill's blog.
