One of our favorite things to sew is toys for children. It makes for such a unique creative experience for a little one, especially if they can help decide what materials you use, or if it’s catered specifically to their personality. Today we’re sharing a really simple pattern download for a plush house from Ever Kelly, perfect for creating a little make-believe village to nourish creativity.
These houses are great for all ages, even tiny tots that you’re worried may be hurt on hard plastic hinges & corners. The plush feel makes it easy to pack away for a trip, or throw in the wash if it gets covered in their mid-day snack! These are made from the Storybook Lane fabric line from Kelly Lee-Creel, a perfectly whimsical line of fabrics with sweet storybook graphics. If you’re looking to make these from your own stash, no worries — we can see these looking great in a huge variety of patterns!
If you’re feeling extra brave and are using a fabric that reads like a solid, you could prep your blocks of fabric before cutting by adding your own building-themed applique such as adding windows in a different pattern, ricrac frames, and more! We can see some cute embroidery with buttons to make flowers across the bottom of a plush house.
This pattern comes in a free download from Ever Kelly, a great blog from fabric designer & super stitcher Kelly Lee-Creel. Find the download here.
