Home Sweet Home BOM Part Three

Every little town needs a school house so I added one to my Penny Rug this month.

Cut out the pattern pieces following the instructions on the template sheets.
You can download the templates HERE.

Sew lines across the school house building and bell-tower 1/4" apart.  This is to give the impression of weatherboards (clapboards)

I like to assemble my building first by gluing the pieces together.  I use Glad Bake as a mat.  If you'd rather you can use Heat and Bond or Vliesofix to hold the pieces in place.

Then position the school house on the end of your penny rug and glue in place.  Now it's time to stitch around each piece and add some stitched details. I added some 1/4" felt strips around the door to make a little porch.

Sew a little bell onto the bell tower and you can call the kiddies into their lessons.

Hope you are enjoying stitching your penny rug as much as me.
PS Don't forget tonight is Friday Night Sew In.  This month you can sign up with Heidi
