This eight-sided house has a double front door and window shutters that open and close, plus the back of the house opens up for easy access when playing. The roof is made from eight curved & flared scallops with beads hanging from each joint along the front and sides. Don't you just love the curly leaves and vines on the top?
Skill Level: For all levels, even a Beginner! This the very easiest of our fairy houses to create. A zigzag sewing machine is required to complete this project. It only takes 5-6 hours to put together. If you can sew zigzag in a straight line, you can make this! Finished Fairy Pagoda is recommended for ages 4 and older. (Directions for doll are not included.)
Special Printing Instructions: Please print the two roof pattern pages of the Fairy Pagoda that have parts 1 & 2 on them on legal size paper (pages 9 & 10) with your printing preferences changed to legal size. If you don't have any legal size, tape together sheets to equal 8½" x 14" before printing. That should make them print correctly.
This was such a fun project with an exceptionally easy to follow pattern. I used a fabric stiffener to help the walls to stay upright. The overall effect of the Fairy Pagoda was such that my nieces have all requested similar Pagodas. In order to facilitate this I used different fabrics and designs, the end result being a fabulous array of houses to delight the eye! I would recommend everyone to try this simple, but elegant design, and then to stand back and watch the faces of the children as they play! I am making more now, as Christmas gifts, for friend's children so shhhhh! Don't tell them!!!!
Absolutely beautiful and fun to make. It was exciting to see it all come together.
I would recommend this pattern to everyone, even a beginner!
I wish the miniature flower fairy was available as a pdf.
