Crochet a Christmas Cabin
Here is a picture tutorial on Flickr on how to construct your own. It is mostly guidelines, so you can make a house any shape you want, as long as you can cut cardboard and cover it with crochet.
The Christmas Cottage is made with acrylic worsted yarn and a size H hook. Sturdy cardboard is used to stiffen the walls and floors.
This house is sized sweetly for Nancy Ann, or my Forget-Me-Knot kids, or a downsized version of Simply Ami. I've finished the basic house, now all it wants is decorating for Christmas (trees, wreaths, stockings, etc...) and some furnishings (sleeping palettes, chairs, etc...).
Make plan for your dollhouse, stitch and block the blocks, cut the cardboard (about a 1/4 inch larger than your blocks), and stitch the house together!
