Fairy Hideaway

About This Pattern

When my brother and I were little, we used to play outside a lot. We created little dens for stuffed animals and action figures using leaves and twigs -- or the occasional hollow log.

The fairy hideaway way my way of bringing this fun inside. With a door and a window that are perfect for small toys to poke through, this little tree is destined for hours of pretend play. You may even want to make one for yourself!

  1. Hi Karen. I have recently purchased Fairy Hideaway pattern all went well until I asembled it . Couldn't get it to stand up I think the canopy is to heavy for the rest of it. Maybe it is that the yarn I used isn't stiff enough. Help please as I love the pattern.

    1. I have had that problem if I use a lighter weight or softer yarn (like Caron simply Soft) to make the trunk of the tree. Do you know what brand of yarn you used for the tree? If you can send me a little more information, I'm happy to work through the issue with you. I promise -- we'll figure it out!
