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!

Too cute. I'd love to make one for my 2 granddaughters.

Thanks. I got a lot of pleasure out of providing a hide out for my little friend. If you do use this pattern, be aware that the patter for the side walls does NOT include the seam allowance.

I love this. I had 2 sons now I have 3 GS and 2 GD. So now I get to do girlie things and love it. Thanks for the advice on the side wall seams and also for sharing.

Your comment makes me smile. My young friend has really enjoyed hers -especially when friends from pre-school come to play.

Nice to start the new year off with this good memory. The child's mother had put it away but brought it out again when we were all recently iced in. Thanks for the comment.

Thanks. You should have seen my sewing room when I was through. An amazing mess. However, a very satisfying project.
