Storybook Lane Tour: Part 2

SL_meetthegang

Are you ready for the rest of your Storybook Lane tour? (See Part 1 of the Storybook Lane tour here.)

What you may have noticed about the fabric panels – is that all of the houses have inside rooms – a kitchen, 2 bedrooms, and a living room so your house can open up and all of your dolls can move inside.

This is where I have been so thankful to Andover for being so patient while I measured and re-measured and tested everything. We wanted you to be able to pick up these fabrics and patterns and get great results every time.

I am so blessed to have my mom helping me test the patterns from her dining room table. Thanks Mom! (And I know a few of you mentioned that you might be willing to test patterns, so if you are still interested, send me a note! We have lot of construction to go around.)

Now, let’s meet the gang:

First we have Alice. Alice is an A+ student and lives with her little white cat in a tidy, Tudor house.

In Alice’s backyard is a carrot patch which attracts a certain mysterious visitor.

Alice’s living room is as neat as a pin – and the perfect place to curl up with a book in front of the cozy fire.

Shall we meet her neighbor?

SL_MeetGoldilocks-03

Goldilocks saw this adorable thatched cottage in the woods and wanted to move right in – and who could blame her?

After she tiptoed past the bee hive out front, she discovered that Baby Bear’s room was just her size and full of cheerful artwork, a banner that Mama Bear made, and snug little bunk beds.

Alice and Goldilocks come with: Mama Bear, Baby Bear, Rapunzel, a Princess, Her Knight in Shining Armor, and a Witch.

    Nice revival item. We used to make these fabric doll houses in the early 80′s for our kids. Is there where you got the idea from? Very cute.
