Fabric Houses

My granddaughters love to carry their "guys" (stuffed animals, dolls) in things.  They also need places for them to I found a tuturial on Pinterest (don't you LOVE Pinterest?).  After doing a search, I found this blog with a tuturial. It was very helpful and I mostly made it just like she said, with a few changes.  It was pretty small and I figured the girls wouldn't get many "guys" in her size, so I added 2 inches on all dimensions.  She had you wrap the plastic canvas in quilt batting and duct tape it...which I did at first, but the tape showed through my fabric.  I took all the tape off and then whipped stitched the batting closed all the way around.  I plan on making my 3 year old granddaughter one and will do it a little differently.  I will put the quilt batting with the fabric and just insert the plastic canvas into the sections.  That will safe tremondously on time.

As you can see from the pictures, they are already being put to good use!
