the medium-sized dollhouse pillow

I wasn't sure if I was ready to attempt this again, but I did. This time it was for a friend's daughter (she gave it to her as a Christmas gift). It wasn't so bad and I made a general pattern of it as I went along, so maybe recreating another time would be much easier (maybe put a few in the shop sometime later). It wasn't quite as large as Brave's, but the dollhouse pillow still came out really cute. Then again, what little girl wouldn't like some sort of dollhouse pillow in any size?!!

I also made two more, but smaller versions, and it didn't open to reveal an inside. Though the windows were pockets to be sure and give the girls some little places to hide their gadgets and gizmos and such.

To compare sizes, Brave's pillow is on the left and the medium-sized one on the right. Though, the medium-sized one was still pretty big, as it was about the size of a standard pillow.

I know some have emailed me about making some of these and I have turned them down, but maybe I might be comfortable enough in the new year to eventually put a couple in the shop. Can't make any promises, but maybe just maybe. Keep your fingers crossed.

  11. These are so cute. I totally wish I had little girls to have these kind of toys around the house. I am on my third boy! so no dolls for us.

  13. These are AWESOME!! I would have killed for one of these when I was little, and my daughter would have adored one. She was always collecting little things.

  14. oh Ruby, your pictures are awesome, but don't nearly show off how detailed and preciously handmade they are up close and personal. I adore Brave's dollhouse and have played with the idea of trying to make one for the girls...perhaps if you put them up in the shop, I will have to buy one :)

  17. These are the most precious pillows I have ever seen. It actually gives me the bug to make one for my girls...and I don't sew! I would definately buy a pattern or DIY tutorial if you put it in your etsy shop. Happy New Year!

  20. I love these pillows....I think every little girl (of any age!)would love one. I custom-made some pillows for my 3 nieces (aged 19, 20, 22) for Christmas using gingham, buttons and bows and some t-shirt transfers. I love your blog, which I read about in 'Artful Blogging'.
