1. Cut two roof pieces with right sides facing and cut 2 house pieces. Trace the windows and doors onto fusible webbing and then press on to the corresponding fabric. Cut the pieces out. Arrange and iron the appliqu├ęs to one of the house body sides.

2. With right sides together arrange the roof on to the top of the house piece. Sew across using a 1/4" seam allowance. Open and press the seam.

3. Using the sewn house as a pattern piece cut out a piece of fusible fleece and iron it to the back of the house. Pin a loop of the ribbon to the top.

 4. Place the front of the house on top with right sides together. Sew around the outer edges leaving a 3" gap for turning. Clip any corners and turn right sides out. Press.

5. Tuck the raw edges into the opening and hand stitch closed.

Hope you had fun,
