This festive Christmas village set creates beautiful holiday décor – light up the houses with LED tea lights and use them as a table centerpiece, put several of them in a clear container and hang them as a lantern, arrange them on a cake stand with a dome, or dangle a tea light inside them and hang them in a wreath.
The set is very easy to create from felt – each house has 3 colour stops, always in the same order, and assemble quickly and easily with a bead of glue up the back and some glue to affix the roof. This is also an ideal design for using metallic threads to highlight the windows and doors (fewer than 2,500 stitches in the colour stop). The total stitches in each house, body and roof combined, is from 4,500 to 7,000 stitches).
The houses measure from 3” tall to 5.3” tall and are created entirely out of felt (white glitter felt works great) on water-soluble stabilizer. The largest design file for the 6x8 houses measures 5.2” wide by 7.7” tall (13.2 x 19.4 cm) and the largest design file for the 5x7 package measures 4.94” x 6.94” (12.6 x 17.6 cm).
Be sure to look at the additional photo's for assembly information and display ideas.
***The download includes two packages: one for 5x7 hoops and one for 6x8 hoops - there is very little difference between the two (only 3 of the houses were scaled down a tiny bit to fit the 5x7 hoop).
Please note these are machine embroidery in the hoop (ITH) designs, not sewing patterns, and they can only be used with an embroidery machine.
