Card table playhouse done!

Update: you can now see my mini-tutorial for a card table playhouse and more photos here.

I finally finished Wyatt’s card table playhouse. I think I’m happy with how it turned out. I made one big mistake. As I thought I was getting close to finishing it, I thought to myself, “Wow, I haven’t had to use the seam ripper even once.” If you know me, you know that the seam ripper and I know each other well. So of course my thoughts jinxed myself and I had to rip out things left and right from that point on. I will post more pictures soon and some tips on making a card table playhouse when I feel like looking at camo again. The inside is more exciting than the outside.

Oh ya, and apparently Wyatt is scared to go inside. I’ve tried to get him to twice but he won’t go in. Hopefully he’ll decide that he likes it, maybe he just doesn’t want to ruin his Christmas surprise.
