Andrew's Birthday Present

For the last month I have been working on a big project for Andrew's birthday present. I am making him a felt playhouse that will slip over our folding card table. I got the idea from my favorite craft blog: I saw her playhouse, and just knew Andrew would love one of his own. I still have lots of work to do, but I have a little less than two months, so hopefully it all comes together. Right now my sewing machine is broken, so I have been cutting all the pieces. Hopefully Micah will be able to get it back up and running soon.

This will be the front. I still need to make the front door and put in a window.
Andrew likes to help Daddy wash the car, so on this side he will practice washing his own car. I still want to make a hose that he can "spray" the car with.
This is the garden. Andrew will be able to pick his own lettuce and carrots. I still want to add one more veggie, I haven't decided if it should be corn or pumpkins.
Andrew loves tractors, so I decided to add a tractor to his playhouse. On this side he can pick the apples off the tree. I will add a cart behind the tractor with a basket to put the picked apples.
Here are all four sides. Nothing is sewn on yet. I just put everything down to see how it looks.
