I made this for a swap friend for her daughter and another for my neice for Christmas. 
I got the tutorial from my swap friend, so this was not my original idea.  Here is the link to the dollhouse if you would like to make your little princess one of her own:  http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2008/08/fabric_dollhouse_tutorial.html?CMP=OTC-5JF307375954

 Here are the pics:

I used ribbon that was doubled and sewn together instead of the fabric ones the tutiral used.  I love the red.

Here is a close up of the felt bird above the front door:

I used felt for the door and the window, a button for the doorknob, and notice the flowers growing up around the front???

These are the botton closures (they are places on each side of the house)

Here is a picture of the house opened up.  The green area can be used as an outdoor garden area!!!

Very sweet!  I'm making a few of these for holiday gifts as well; it's such a great tutorial.  I love your embroidered flowers - so clever!

So cute! Now all you have to do is make it some furniture and a tiny person/animal to live inside it! I vote teddy bear house!

I swap, so in crafting terms I guess that means I put out... You?

Very cute and I love the detail of the little bird above the door!

This would be a great take along for road trips or doctor's office.  Thanks for sharing the tutorial with us too.

That's so cute! A little bit of alterations and it would be perfect for a boy too. I should make one of those for my baby brother.... Such an awesome idea. Kudos to you and your swap partner, even for accomplishing such a feat, even if neither of you made the idea up or not. ^ ^

I'd seen the tutorial, but I love your interpretation of it.  So cute!
