DIY No Sew Felt Playhouse

Estimated read time 2 min read

I want to give a big “thank you” to Sew Can Do who inspired me to crafty action with this post about her own no-sew playhouse, her idea is brilliant!

This playhouse is made to fit over your table.

Some things I learned:

  • you need a good pair of sharp scissors
  • the measuring process is made easier if you have basic sewing supplies like a cutting board, measuring tape, and yard stick. The right tools make measuring quick and keep your fabric from sliding around.
  • A hot glue gun works better than white glue. A kid friendly design is essential, otherwise I stress out about burns.
  • A Cuttlebug makes really cute designs!

Can you see the blue chalk lines? I didn’t have any sewing chalk so what can I do? Use sidewalk chalk. Yup. That’s what I did.

What a fun surprise to make while a child naps!

This no-sew felt playhouse is doable in just a few hours.

I took a break after the initial construction and paused until I had sharper scissors. I was almost getting blisters from trying to force a dull pair through the felt!

In the last stages, I went to work cutting balloons, flowers, and letters. I also made a few adjustments to the ties. I increased the length of the original incisions and retied the two colors together to make the fit more tight.

Mommy and daughter both had a nice time making it together!
