A friend asked if I could repair her toy duck that was lovingly chewed by her dog.

Fabric Doll Houses

Tutorial: Fabric Doll Houses by Dawn
The houses, or barns, are made from plywood covered with pellon and fabric. One side wall and roof opens up to reveal a garden and the inside of the barn. They have handles on top of the roof so they are also like little suitcases, ready to carry important things.

In the gardens there are paths, a flower garden, vegie patches and ponds.
