How to make

Step-1

Trace around the templates onto felt. Cut a zig zag edge around a fabric square with pinking shears, pin to the roof of one house shape and trim to the same shape. Over-sew the bottom edge of the roof to the felt with three strands of embroidery thread.

Step-2

Pin the two houses together and blanket stitch around the sloping edges of the roof to join. Fold up the back piece and pin to the roof.

Step-3

Cut out door and window pieces from felt and pin to the front. Fix down with embroidery thread using over-sew stitches. Add a button to the front door. Un-pin the back of the house and continue sewing the two shapes together with blanket stitch. Leave a small gap in the side of the house and stuff lightly with fibre filling before closing up the gap. Add a loop of thread to the top for hanging.
