Sweet Shop playhouse

Several months ago, I saw a pattern for sale for a card table playhouse that looked like a bakeshop. I knew a card table sized playhouse would be nowhere big enough to fit my youngest girls and I also knew that I could easily do it without a pattern. I bought the fabric back in September and started working on it by October. I finally finished the day before Christmas Eve. It is 54 inches tall and 58 inches long on each side.

The front of the shop (the open sign can be turned around to say “closed”)002My favorite part is the little birdie in the window.122

One side has ice removable ice cream cones that are attached with Velcro.005008

The other side has cupcakes attached the same way.010012

I also made them matching chefs hats, oven mitts, and aprons.118

They tell me it is the best Christmas present ever and have spent every ounce of free time playing bake shop. They have already come up with menus, order tickets, and have even thrown a grand opening party, which you had to “pay real money to get into, unless you have a coupon.” Luckily they were kind enough to give me and their dad a coupon to get in so we didn’t have to fork out the cash.
