"in the hoop", no machine sewing required, for 5x7 hoops
This pattern includes all designs and instructions to make everything as shown above. The roof is separate on the cottage/school so it can be used as a unique gift box. The cottage (above right) is adorned with pearls and jewels, making it as decadent on the outside...
as it is on the inside.
Each side is decorated with beautiful details. The Gingerbread Cottage (left) has a "brick" chimney, evergreen tree and festive windows. We made our sample with white and gold satin and gold metallic thread. The Country Chapel (center) covers a clear plastic cube (we tell you how to make it), has stunning "stained glass" windows and a bell tower. It has the look of lace but it is not. All that is required to achieve this beautiful look is thread, tear-away stabilizer and white organza. The Red School House has a cupola and weather vane on the roof, we even included a printable American flag for the front.
Once the goodies are gone, you can add lights to your houses.
