My treehouse

My treehouse block isn't completely finished, but I was too excited to not show it off. This was so much fun to create. As you may notice, I relied heavily on one of the examples I used as my inspiration (the label that had the treehouse on it).

I still need to stitch around the edges, but I used interfacing underneath. I also plan to stitch a little rope ladder in the little opening at the bottom of the tree.

I ran out of the same blue backing fabric that I had sent to everyone. I think this vintage fabric is close though.

I definitely want to make a few more different treehouses though!

i especially love the blue & red background fabric. i'm not familiar with applique, but wondered if it is standard to use interfacing behind large items like your trunk?
