Kritter Kabins

These 'Kritter Kabins' are one of the gifts I made for my
sweet little granddaughters for Christmas!
They are made from a 1980's McCall's pattern
that I had made for my youngest daughter when
she was small.

Miss Morgan's Blue Mouse House
(The Mouse Family is yet to move in!)

Raegan's Pink Rabbit House
(because pink is her favorite color!)

(I need to get busy and finish the Kritters!
Mr. Rabbit is lonely without his family
and the Mouse House can't wait empty for too long!)

Finished Kritter Kabins!

I have been trying to give handmade gifts
at Christmas each year.
Do you make homemade gifts?

Yes, I make handmade gifts also and they are so much fun to give :)

My little niece would like something like this, would you share the pattern # and maybe I'll be able to find it?

Blessings,

Oh! My! how blessed your granddaughters are, They are so adorable. I always admire people who are gifted with their hands, . I am hoping to be able to find more time this year to try and learn a new graft.

Oh, Lady Farmer,

These little Kabins are so cute and so much work to create! When Abbey was little I bought her one similar (but not nearly as nice) and she played with it for years. We have it packed away with her childhood treasures. You did a spectacular job on these with all the detail.

A treasure that will become an heirloom!

Thanks for sharing!

Last year i made almost all my gifts...but somehow this year got away from me. Hopefully next year...in fact these little houses are very inspiring! :)

These are so sweet! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope my tea cozy tutorial won't take too long - the fabric samples won't be shipped to the US for quite awhile! Please keep visiting in the meantime! I like having company! :-)
