Dolls House Quiet Book Sew Along – Day 3 GIVEAWAY
Welcome to Dolls House Quiet Book Sew Along – Day 3 GIVEAWAY! How is your Dolls House coming along so far? Still looking for more ideas and inspiration? Maybe I can help with that!
Since I am working on my THIRD Dolls House (my first 2 are the ones you see in the PDF pattern tutorial), I wanted to change things up a bit. I had some ideas for different ways to use the Dolls House pattern pieces to make alternative rooms and features. You won’t find these ideas in the PDF pattern. So, I’m excited to share them with you HERE!
Swimmin’ Hole turned into a Carrot Patch!
The Dolls House Quiet Book pattern includes pattern pieces to make a swimmin’ hole. Your softy dolly can take a refreshing dip in the water, and try to catch a few fish while he’s at it!
But, what if you wanted something a little more in the garden variety for your Dolls House? Why not turn the swimmin’ hole into a carrot patch? All I did was, cut the tail off the fish, add a little embroidery floss for the leaves, some creative stitching, and VIOLA! Carrot patch! Easy peasy 😉
Another fun idea for you….
My daughter LOVES kitties! So, I added a little something special to the front window of her Dolls House. This cute little kitty appears to be looking out the window from the inside. She was fussy cut from a scrap of fabric I used to make a top for my daughter a while back (read my post about the top HERE). Then, I just sewed around the perimeter to secure her in place.
BTW: If you’re not familiar with the term fussy cut, it’s basically just a technique of isolating and cutting around a particular image from your fabric. For this project, I will be using this technique to add surprise details here and there, throughout the Dolls House. So, keep a look out! 😉
I’ve got some more tricks up my sleeve for alternative rooms. Be sure to come back tomorrow for different ideas for the inside rooms of the Dolls House Quiet Book.
