Gifty Galore – Project 3
7.21.2014

I’m Stephanie and I am happy to have been asked to participate in Connecting Threads Gifty Gal0re.

Chalkboard houses for CT

For any occasion or for no reason at all, who wouldn’t love the gift of a little house?  There is something about little houses that are fun, cute, charming.  Housewarming is a project that allows you to be your own decorator and builder and complete a cute little house in an hour!

Boat House for CT

These little houses are a super simple and fast projects that makes great use of your scraps.

Hen House for CT

Decorate with buttons and trim to personalize the house for each recipient — neighbor, teacher, hair stylist, pet nanny, mail carrier.

Mr. Fixit Collage for CT

The back pocket is the perfect place to add a note or gift card., tea bag or bar of chocolate.

Bird House for CT

Perhaps some birdhouse gourd seeds tucked in the back pocket would thrill your favorite bird lover.

Hula House front and back for CT

These little houses would also be a fun way to deliver invitations to birthday parties, housewarmings, bridal or baby showers, or retirement parties or party favors.  How about takeaways for a wedding?

Snow Cabin for CT

A super fun button would be adorable in place of the novelty fabric for the “window.”  I keep thinking how adorable it would be to decorate Gingerbread Houses.  The holidays are coming!!!

Housewarming collage for CT

Have fun.  Betcha can’t make just one!  I know I couldn’t.  I’ve made an entire neighborhood.

    Now this is something I can really get into. I’m going to have fun with this one when I get back from vacation. I like to give away seeds from my garden. I have seed packets I’ve downloaded and this is the perfect gift package. It will also work great for jewelry I’m handing down to granddaughters and nieces. I love this!!! Thank you Stephanie.

        You will see them around Nov and Dec when I’m making Christmas presents. Maybe before for birthday presents too!

        Oooh, you just gave me some more ideas. I have kokeshi cat fabric that could go in the door! I think my granddaughter is going to need a neighborhood for some fun make believe playtime!

      Thanks Jenni! Nice seeing your comment. I have a nautical loving friend who will be receiving the boat house. :o) I’m putting a dark chocolate sea salt caramel candy bar in the back pocket.
