Red Felt House

Red Felt HouseI love this little house, (very little, 3/4″ x 1″ x 1 1/8″). It came out much better than Clover my last wool felt attempt, I won’t try that edge binding stitch again, not until I become a sewing machine. Which isn’t going to happen. (^_^) Tiny stitches around the edge to hold the pieces worked quite well, I think they make the corners look much neater than a blanket stitch, especially on something this small. So yay! (And how is it I can manage 10 stitches an inch on this, but only 2-3 stitches an inch when I’m trying to hand quilt? I know, I only have to keep the 10 stitches per inch up for a single inch…)

Anyway, here are all the sides:

I had so much fun stitching all the little flowers! The windows are unfortunately wiggly, and I’m not sure how to fix that. I don’t know any good ways to make fine marks on wool felt, blue water erase pens aren’t dark enough, and chalk lines aren’t really fine enough. I did stitch some vertical guides down the center of each side with thread, and that helped some. I will just have to become a straight-sewing goddess. Someday.
