I decided to use the house template provided to make a needle case for my embroidery needles. I'm not sure where that idea came from but it seemed like a good one.
At first I drew a cottage onto my fabric and coloured it in. Hmm. Leonardo I am not. I was beginning to think that my idea wasn't so great after all.
So I took a look online to get some inspiration. I Googled "pictures of old cottages" and I found a free image of a cottage on The Old Design Shop . It gave me a whole new idea on how to do this challenge.
I printed the image onto Moda cotton using the freezer paper method. I have never found freezer paper in my grocery store. They must sell it locally somewhere but so far I haven't had any luck in finding some. I buy my supply from Doll Makers Journey. It comes in a package of fifty letter size sheets.
Sorry the pics aren't very good. I was raining when I took them. I'm not complaining. It's much better than getting tons of snow.
|I made an attempt to embellish the image and then gave up. Less is best.|
I had a scrap of fabric left over from another project which worked nicely with the colours in the image. Luckily I also had some wool felt in a nice shade of peachy pink that matched as well.
I'm very pleased with how it turned out.
