I'm really excited about making a wendy house for my twin daughters.  Its going to be small enough to fit in their bedroom and easy to transport around the home.  I found the inspiration from a vintage toy craft book and then mapped out a simple design to fit a frame I found here.  I decided I'll applique the pieces rather than have it printed onto fabric, however I'd love to sell this plus other designs as a printed DIY kit!

I'm going to use vintage fabrics for the curtains and the interior walls so it looks like 60s wallpaper!

AAAAAHHHH!!! Too damn gorgeous for words. It will look beautiful appliqued, but I bet you'll be able to sell printed kits no problem, it's a great idea - I wish I was little again so I could play in it! Totally the prettiest wendy house ever. x
