For my sweet prince

A little handmade gift for my middle guy. He loves castles, so he asked Santa for a castle with a king, a princess, a knight and a dragon. Santa got him a castle dinner set, that he loves.


I would have really liked to get him this, and my husband found this. Both are pretty big, and the price is pretty big too. I wasn’t sure how long he would be into castles to make such an investment. So, I  made him a castle and painted his little people, except for one. You can see the style difference. My husband designed and painted the knight. ( with a little force…hey I can’t do it all sometimes) Not quite what I had in mind, but stylish.

I had seen a tutorial years ago for this little red barn made of felt that colapses and folds up for storage. I couldn’t find it , so I just made up things as I went. It’s close but still has a few more tweeks to be made.


It was one of the most fun things I had just made from my head on a whim in a while.
