Just For Fun

Just for fun, I thought I'd make these little houses for Christmas place settings. Aren't they the cutest?
They only need tiny bits of fabric and trim some Timtex and glue.. Most sewists I know have lots of little scraps that would work. Add cute buttons, sequins, glitter, paint...and they're done. They would be a fun project to do with kids, too.
(Of course I say that so blithely, now that my kids are adults and won't hog all of the prettiest glitter, or spill beads all over the kitchen, or fight over who gets to use the pinking shears..Some people find that making stuff with their kids is like entering a special circle of hell. To them I say, well, maybe you'll be better off making these alone. But really, MY kids liked doing stuff with me. They happily slopped glitter all over everything. I still have the stockings we decorated, and they still have a ton of glitter on them.)
These  little houses would also be fun for a Halloween Party in spooky colors, or Thanksgiving in Fall Fabrics, or birthdays...or - whenever you need an adorable little house.Want to make some too? Find them here.
