I can’t believe it but today is my little man’s first birthday! I have no idea where the last year has gone? But he sure enjoyed his first taste of chocolate cake!
What do you get your third son for his first birthday? We already own every toy a little boy could want or need. Then I remembered that about a year ago I had seen a really cute felt fort but sadly I could not find the site I originally saw it on. I did some searches and found a few that were for sale on Etsy, but none that were exactly like what I was looking for (and I did not want to spend $200 on it). So I decided we could do it and I sat down and sketch up what I had in mind.
Luckily for me my husband also likes to sew and is very creative so it made this project so much fun. We spent some nights sitting on the sofa watching tv and hand sewing cute little forest animals.
Want to see the outcome? I am so excited about how it turned out!
This is the side that my husband made. I love the dragon! There are slits in the rock to hold the boys swords and the fire coming out of the dragon can be removed making it safe to get into the treasure chest.
I love the little forest animals and all the little hiding places they have. The apples are also removable and can be placed in the little basket.
AND THE BIRTHDAY BOY LOVED IT!
