What are you most proud of? That I kept trying until I got the tensions right.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Cut extra length for the ruffles. Gather the length you need and then cut the ends to match the pattern pieces. Too much time was spent adjusting the cut out fabric to the "base" requirements. Look for fabric on sale!

You have some lovely ideas - very imaginative!

I just now saw this comment. Generous comment but hope you are aware this is from a Kwik Sew Pattern. (says pattern includes seam allowance but it does not). I did add a few things. The flowers around the bottom were from a circular place mat on sale for 99 cents. ;-)

A card table; has skinny legs. You might find one at an estate sale or a Good Will store.

Hi Very sweet little house, could you please tell me what you used for the frame

Glad you like it. It is made to go over a folding card table; 39" square.

How did you make this? Did you have a pattern?? Would love to make one for my granddaughter

This is a Kwik Sew Pattern. I says it includes the seam allowance but it does not. I figured that out just before I started sewing the base and added steps of fabric on the edges. Knowing that, you can add the seam allowance as you cut out the side panels that go around the card table legs. Glad you like it.

I can't wait to get started. How does the top stay up?

The pattern has complicated instructions for building a support. Art that point I bought a 99 cent basket I saw at the grocery store that was just the right size. It worked great!
