thread houses.... {a series}

everyone loves a house; and i am no exception. i feel like i am always trying to come up with a new way to make a house....a new variation. 

i love these little houses on sweater scraps. the doors are vintage linens with cotton fabric toppers. i sewed the house sweater onto various sized acrylic painted watercolor paper. 

i then sewed again onto the watercolor paper with no thread- i just wanted the holes. (that detail is hard to see in my pics but, there are holes along the left edge just off the sweater.) then, i hand threaded the roof lines. 

now, if i had some frames....i am betting these will be super cute in a mat and frame; hope my frame order is quick! 

happy tuesday!
