I made these little toadstool houses as Christmas gifts for our little girl's nursery/kindy teachers who share my delight in this kind of thing too. Each house is a bit different but they have a little felt door which opens to reveal the lucky little critter living inside, a tiny bicycle parked outside against the wall and of course lots of wildflowers and butterflies in their garden.
I crafted them from offcuts of an old cream blanket and the red toadstool caps from a no-longer-worn corduroy shirt. They are of a rather simple construction, weighted with river pebbles and stuffed. It was fun to just stitch whatever came into my head and not have to think about anything technical. Such a pleasure to sew.
I'm pleased to say the pattern for "A Village of Toadstools" featuring three different sized toadstools, a full tutorial, pattern pieces and embroidery & inspiration guide just been released in my shop. You will find it here or you can use the button below.
Tomorrow I hope to share with you some of the wonderful toadstool houses created by the ladies in the pattern testing group. So many wonderful ideas, I'm sure you will have a delightful time looking through them all.
