Red/green felt house

A felt house finished over the weekend.  I’ll admit I liked it better as a flat thing.
Rather than stuff the satin loops through the bead, I slipped waxed linen through the bead and tied it around.
And here’s a rare photo of Jack relaxed (rare, because the camera makes him nervous):
My 59 second tutorial on making the felt houses can be found in a link in this post.

    It looks more like a casket than a house…

    …and wouldn’t hold your pencils if it were flat!

    I think it’s lovely.

    Thanks, Chris. But do you mean ‘casket’ as in for dead bodies?

      Thanks, Deanna. I’ll be sure to add my email – I know it’s on my website, which is on my sidebar, but maybe that’s a few too many layers away!

    Dee this little felt house is wonderful (and I’m heading over to check out the tutorial…sooo sweet).
    Mistress of the North has arrived!!!! I LOVE her, she has such a quiet spirituality about her …. I am sure she is filled with wisdom about all things in nature. I picked a little fresh thyme today which she is clutching with her keys…I think she knows many herbal remedies.

    Chris – I didn’t think you meant casket for dead bodies – mainly b/c it’s the wrong shape, but also because your from the UK, and we all know you guys have your weird usages !! (har-har).

    Karen – thanks for popping in… and I WOULd turn off my computer, but I’m busy making comments. (another har-har).

    Jacky – thanks for comment and so glad doll arrived intact and that you like her… the thought of you adding fresh herbs to her clutch of keys makes me smile…
