While we were decorating for the holidays, we decided that we needed a small wall hanging to go above our buffet. We have gingerbread decorations on the buffet so it made sense that we needed a gingerbread house wall hanging.
While I going through our holiday fabric tub, I found this panel (who knows when we bought it).
Unfortunately I thought it was a bit too busy and I wasn’t really fond of the dark border.
I created a new background and fused the gingerbread house and trees to my new (less busy background) and added a new border.
I also added a little scottie (everything is better with a little scottie). For the scottie, I fussy cut it from some other scottie fabric and then I also fussy cut the scottie sweater from another piece of fabric. I then fused them together onto the snow.
I used scraps of wool batting from another project and as a result it came out real puffy when I quilted it. I don’t think I’d do that again. I much prefer the cotton batting. The puffy batting kinda works for the gingerbread house, but I don’t really care for it in the sky.
It was a fun little holiday decor piece to work on and it now hangs over our dining room buffet and finishes off the gingerbread holiday decor there.
Happy Stitch’n and Happy Holiday,
