Dolls House Quiet Book Sew Along – Day 4 GIVEAWAY

Hey, Ladies!

Welcome to the Dolls House Quiet Book Sew Along – Day 4 GIVEAWAY. We’re moving on to the inside of the Dolls House today. Yesterday, I promised more ideas and room alternatives. So, let’s make good on that promise, shall we? Here we go!

Let’s start with a reading nook….

Use the Tent to Make a Reading Nook

Who doesn’t love a cozy, little reading nook? This was totally easy to achieve, too. The tent, itself is the same. No changes there. All I did was omit the sleeping bag and replace it with some cute and cozy pillows (I used the Button Flower pattern pieces for these) and a few good books.

No pattern piece needed for the books. I simply fussy cut around smaller images in the shape of a rectangle. Then, used clever stitching to make them look like books. And, DONE!

Same thing with the bunting. No pattern piece. Just cut out some triangles from fabric scraps, and ‘connected’ them with a scrap of lace (ribbon would work, too!) Now, THAT is some awesome scrap busting! 😀

Oh! And, check out that window! I added a touch of whimsy to her reading nook window, using (you guessed it) more fussy cutting. Is she cute, or what?!

Ok, let’s move on the next room….

A Kitchen

The Dolls House Quiet Book doesn’t actually come with a kitchen option. But, that’s not to say you can’t make one!

I used the sleeping bag pattern piece to make the fridge, and simply stitched the doors and handles. Kinda has a cool, retro vibe. Don’t you think?

Next, I used the nightstand pattern piece to make a kitchen sideboard. Just cut the nightstand on the fold, and got a little creative with the stitching. I created the illusion of pots and pans (among other kitchen necessities) by essentially ‘drawing’ them in with my sewing machine. They’re certainly not perfect! Lol! They look like a kid drew them. But, hey…It adds to the charming appeal of this quiet book (that’s what I’m telling myself, anyway) 😉

The addition of these cute little country curtains adds a sort of ‘surprise’ element for your child. “What’s behind the curtain?” Then, I used a bar tack stitch to ‘draw’ in a kitchen faucet.

  1. LOVE the reading nook! We actually built one for our kiddos in a closet and I have left over fabric. that made the curtain in there! So many ideas!

  2. I’m making progress on mine! My daughter ran off with the kitty and told me I’m taking too long haha. I told her she needs to let me sew if she wants it done 🙂

  3. Work on my doll house quiet book got stalled on Tuesday and Wednesday due to the early arrival of my grandson! He was 10 days early! I am working on my book this afternoon ; hoping to catch up a bit. But you know what all this means–I will need to be making a boy book now!!!!

  4. Oh I love these ideas! My house has stalled as I have a few too many things one but these ideas will help spur me on!
