I have to start with I've never done this before. I took a picture, kind of drafted it out and then picked out some fabrics that would work as the house. I started it back in Nov and just let it sit for a while. Sometimes projects need to marinate.
See, my friend is going to lose her house. We all know how the market is right now, properties aren't selling for what they were once worth and the bank gets a lot of them back. Her house is one of those. She really liked her Victorian. So, I thought I could give her a house. Her house, to take with her. Cheesy? Yes. Dorky? Yes. Will she like it? I have no idea... It's so totally cheesy... I think I'll give it to her and ask her to not open it in front of me in case she thinks it's lame.
All I have left is to hand stitch the binding down.
