Birdhouse Lantern

Depending on your color choices, this lantern can be anything from a cute round birdhouse to a Cinderella-style nightlight!  The lantern is completed in 2 hoopings and the applique pieces are cut out after the design is complete and unhooped so it is very easy.  It has free-standing lace details, perfect for hanging charms, beads, pearls or crystals and it can be embellished with hotfix crystals for even more sparkle.  

The lanterns are made out of felt stitched onto water-soluble stabilizer and are assembled with a line of glue up the back and four brads to hold the electric tea light inside.  The lantern can be hung from a chain or it can sit on a shelf. 

The design has a total of 12,000 stitches and when complete it measures about 5.5" tall and fits one battery-powered tea light inside. 

Please note these are machine embroidery in the hoop (ITH) designs, not sewing patterns, and they can only be used with an embroidery machine.
