Put Houses and Trees on Display for Christmas or Any Time!
Create a whimsical little village to enjoy every holiday season from Christmas fabric you love. Cute houses in three sizes are simple to make and can be embellished in many ways.
For example, fussy cut special motifs for the doors or windows, add button accents here and there, decorative stitching can create gingerbread trim effects, and more. Make them as simple or fancy as you want.
While the houses are perfect for the Christmas season, they can be put on display any time of the year. Simply change the fabric to suit.
These are so simple to make from scraps or fat quarters and polyfill. Weighted bags and cardstock or chipboard bases help the houses maintain their shapes and sit securely.

Instructions are provided by the designer, Amy from Ameroonie Designs, for houses in the following sizes:
- Large House – approx. 7 1/2″ tall, 4″ wide, and 2″ deep
- Medium House – approx. 6 1/2″ tall by 3″ wide and 1 1/2″ deep
- Small House – approx. 5″ tall, 2 1/2″ wide, and 1 1/2″ deep
Charming fabric trees mix nicely with the houses. They’re so simple to make from scraps or fat quarters. Wooden skewers and scraps of wood provide the trunks and bases.
Finished sizes are not provided. You can make the trees any size (and shape) you want by adjusting the size of the starting triangles.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
