What materials did you use? cotton fabric

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!

I would love to make the playhouse

Two thoughts: 1)Look for fabric on sale and 2) cut the fabric for the roof a little extra long and ruffle it. Then cut it to the right length. I spent way too long "ooching the ruffles" to be the correct length. Good luck!

Would love to make the playhouse but any ideas for a boy playhouse

I seem to recall that Kwik Sew has a similar pattern for a barn with a hay loft effect

I was hoping that I could make it like a fort

I bet you could just take the measurements of the table you want to use (plus seam allowances) using four sides and the top to "slip cover" the table. cut out a door for entry to the fort. It wouldn't need the closure fabric - just be reinforced with border fabric. Then create two windows on at least one side. I would use the method shown on the playhouse for window stability. Then one could appliqu cactus and maybe a roadrunner around the base at least on the front. Just thinking out loud here.
