If ever you go to a famously funky store in New York and see a charming doll's house bag, and say to yourself "I can *easily* do that", and then decide to make one for a gift for someone...
I really bloody hate zips. And sewing through thick blanket, stiff lining and a bloody zip is a nightmare.
I thought I would be able to knock this out pretty easily, but 3 days later and a very sore finger (hate thimbles too), I never want to make one again. The basic concept is easy to design, but lots of things went pear shaped in the making of it, the worst being the lining for the roof - who knew that triangles could cause so much grief ? Not me.
My advice is, go buy one.
Except that I wouldn't be able to afford it.
I think I'll stick to making things like these
two little dollies to go inside the house, using the same method as my hedgie tutorial but with hair instead of spikes,
Who will hopefully be up for sale next week along with his brother and sister. Once my poor finger recovers (winge winge) and I finish their hats.
Thank you so much for your good wishes for my loved one,who is now in good health and on the road to recovery. : )
Have a lovely weekend.
