I saw the tutorial for this delightful little house on the blog UK lass in US at least a bazillion years ago (maybe two years tops) and have had it tagged as a must do since.
The original house is teeny tiny... I had no idea until I started drawing up the templates (because I didn't pay enuf attention) so this one is, I think, at 150% - mainly because I wanted to make knit/felt animals and wooden fencing not use those cute little plastic farmyad sets and put simply big fat felt ones wouldn't fit and sewing teeny tiny ones two nights before Christmas would send me blind.
Making it bigger has made it not quite so sturdy... the frame sags a little but not so much I care and I don't think the wee girl has even noticed.
I recycled bits and pieces; an old, fine cashmere jumper for the grassy field, scrap felt for the pond, hair bands for the button loops - it was a fun project and the house itself was made in a day. I only had to make a couple of the animls too because as luck would have it we got second prize in the craft group raffle last year which included some knitted farm animals.
