Felt House Along Week 3: Bank Drive-Thru Wall

This week I tackled the drive-thru bank wall for my felt playhouse.  I started out by chalking out the ATM & teller window and then cut out the window hole & slot for deposits.

I made a roller shade that can be up or down by sandwiching two strips of felt on either side of the top between the shade piece and stitching them on together.  Then I stitched on the letters (3"x3" each on this side).

For the ATM I cut out a big rectangle of white felt, a smaller square of gray for the screen, nine - 1in x1in squares of blue & a few rectangles for the buttons & stitched them all together (pins are yourr best friend here).  

I used my ever-favorite printable fabric sheets to make the ATM & deposit signs and then stitched those on.  I added a long strip of green (cut half way down every 1/4in) at the bottom for grass and was done.  My 7yr old is really into playing bank, so he was way excited to see this was "his" side.
