Fabric Houses

I saw one of these dollhouses on Pinterest and thought it was so cute. I have added the link for the tutorial so you can make them yourself (http://uklassinus.blogspot.com/2008/08/fabric-dollhouse-tutorial.html ) . This would make a nice Easter gift for a child or even a birthday gift. The pictures show some houses or barns that be for a boy or a girl.

I am planning to try it, too. It looks like so much fun! I may just make them for my granddaughters.
