Toadstool Village Size Chart + Materials List


This pattern includes a village of three different sizes of toadstool houses with the following finished heights: Small  6.5" (16.5cm), Medium 8" (20cm) and Large 10" (25.5 cm)

Suggested fabrics

Walls and Base: Woven fabrics.  I like to use wool, but you can also use fabrics such as linen, cotton or canvas.
Cap: Red fabric in a similar weight for a classic toadstool. You can add white felt spots to a plain fabric if desired.  You could use any colour or patterned fabric for a less traditional option.  

Fabric yardage requirements

Walls and Base: 12” or 30cm of fabric is enough to make all three sizes (a complete village).
Cap: 12” or 30cm of fabric is enough to make a complete village (this is enough for two villages, but you will need this amount to make one).
