Congrats to the Winners!

Hello dear friends!  I have an important announcement to make today!  Three lucky winners will be receiving the Halloween Ornament Patterns! 

They are:
Django,
Mia (please contact me with your email address)
Kimi.

Congratulations to you all and many thanks to all who entered this giveaway for your sweet comments!












I decided to make a little felt house this week.  It didn't quite turn out as planned:(  I spent quite some time embroidering it and putting it all together and was pretty pleased with the result until I started stuffing it.  Had I given it some thought, I would have made a cardboard insert to provide some stability to the house, but it didn't occur to me until after the whole thing was stuffed and sewn up and bulging out like a little puffed up balloon house!  Will have to try another one sometime!




Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and to my Canadian friends, Happy Thanksgiving!
hugs,
~Shelly

  7. Hello, what a sweet little house. I have a bucilla ornament kit that makes little houses out of felt--and the instructions were to cut out 2 pieces of felt for every part of the house. You sew on three sides of the 2 felt pieces to make a section, and then insert the cardboard in between the 2 pieces where you have not stitched yet. Then the cardboard is in between the felt and keeps it shape. The ornament did not have a bottom, so you could see the inside of the house through the bottom. If you are making a house with the bottom, your inside felt could be any color that you would like to use up. Without a bottom, you could put things underneath it for a suprise when it is lifted up!! Hope this helps--have a great week. Judy

  8. The little house is just adorable and I would not have noticed the puffing out look until you mentioned it. :)
