I made this little house thanks to Sew Can She, which offers free daily tutorials delivered via email. This one comes from Retro Mama and originally appeared here. (That's where you can find the instructions, too.)
I made this first little house to send along with some fabric mail to my friend Kelly at Stitchy Quilt Stuff. It turned out so cute that I just had to make, um, five more.
They were a lifesaver for all the ornament exchanges I found myself involved in for Christmas, but they'd also be cute decorations to have out all year long. It was fun to dig through fabric scraps - even those tiny scraps that are good for pretty much nothing but that I can't seem to toss in the trash - and create the different combinations.
