Gingham Cottage

I started this paper-pieced cottage last month but only just got around to finishing it off today - specifically the envelope and lining.  This pretty image from WMS Sewing Box Hugs lends itself so well to paper piecing and I had been meaning to try this for some time.  I used one of the Spellbinders Postage Stamps Square dies to cut a mat - I always think it has that fabric swatch look which complements the theme sew very nicely.  I used a fine liner to "stitch" around the outside of the gingham because my sewing machine needs repairs.  I placed a sheet of plaid DP on the inside and added some little buttons down the left side.  These were cut with the smallest of the PTI Bitty Buttons Stack dies.  I glossed them up a little for some added shine.

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. What a cute design Kate.
