I joined the Trim the Tree Handmade Ornament Swap on Flickr for the second year in a row. I am trying to back off swaps at the moment in order to have more time around the holidays but I can't resist making ornaments...or receiving them in the mail. Last year I only fit in the time to make one little house ornament so this year I started off with some little houses to warm up. I am not sure what to make next. I plan to make several and see what comments my partners might leave before deciding what to send out and what to keep or give as gifts. I always prefer to make ornaments in batches of at least three because they look cuter in groups! These little houses measure 1 3/4" wide by 4 3/4" high. The windows and doors are attached with fusible webbing and a long, narrow, zig zag stitch in black thread. The door knobs are french knots.
