    Hi Kara! I apologize, don't know how that slipped by me =D
    It's been fixed all the links work correctly now!!

  2. The links on this page take you to the dollhouse parts, not the pirate ship 🙁

  3. Love this! I'm working on the doll house, then will do the pirate. I sure hope you have more play books coming up! Thank you.

  4. What a fabulous idea! I'll have to finish my other projects so I can try this. Very Clever!

  5. I'm so excited to begin this project! I loved your dollhouse book although I have no girl to make it for yet….I'd like to do this project in cotton (weight 4). Do you think it will work up well or have any suggested changes? TIA.
