Merry and Bright Christmas House Ornament Instructions:

**All seams are ¼” unless otherwise noted

Please read through the complete instructions before starting.
Step 1:  Print pattern for the house.  Make sure to print actual size.
Step 2:  Cut out 1 of the house patterns from interfacing and grey fabric. Cut two rectangles from interfacing and two from red fabric – 2” x 2 ¾” for the roof.

Step 3:  Bond the interfacing to the wrong side of fabrics following the package instructions.
Step 4:  Print the applique pieces on a printer following the instructions by HeatnBond Lite EZ Print or trace the patterns with a permanent marker onto the paper side of HeatnBond Lite. Fuse the patterns to the wrong side of fabrics following the manufacturer’s instructions and cut out the applique pieces.  Use the pattern key as a guide to place the applique pieces on the house pattern after peeling the backing paper off.  Once all the pieces are in place, bond the pieces all at once to the house following the manufacturer’s instructions.

To finish the appliques, stitch around the edges of the appliques twice using a straight stitch with Aurifil thread:  50wt # 2692.  Stitch lines on windows by stitching the lines in the middle both horizontally and vertically.

Step 5:  Stitch the house together following the steps in the PDF pattern.

Step 6:  Turn the tiny house right side out, place the cardboard in the bottom, stuff it with fiberfill, and stitch up the last wall.

How cute would a tree be with a house theme?  Hmmm.

      Hi Dana…the link to the pattern is the first listed supply. If you have an ad block or pop-up blocker on, that would prevent the window from opening to the pattern. If you need further help, please email me at [email protected] Julia
