Fabric House




This is a fabric house I made using beautiful collage fabric from Ben Franklin Crafts and assorted embellishments. I cut out the shape of a house in extra-heavy duty interfacing, the decorative fabric and a matching plain fabric (for the back or inside pieces). I then rolled the cut edges tightly (outward) and hand sewed with a whip stitch all around the frame of the house. I then simply sewed the house frames (plus a bottom) together. The thick interfacing gives the house its support. Embellishments (lace trim, beads and jewelry were then added last. A fun but time-consuming project- good for cold winter days! This is for Saturdays Workout (Fabric Art).
