The house template was just a very simple 5 inch house, We were to create with it what ever we wanted.
I chose to make a Spring Time Mat with my House.
It is like a Mug Rug but I wanted it larger, I keep by my sewing machine or sewing area and even while doing hand sewing while sitting with my Husband watching TV and doing hand sewing,
It keeps all my extra needles handy where I can use them, Also can use it with my straight pins, Makes me smile when looking at it. I kept it simple, It is Quilted, Appliqued, Warm and Natural is the batting. I also stitched around each piece,But it doesn't show in picture,It must be because I used matching thread for each piece. When I am ready to use it, I just roll it up and take it with me, It is always set up with extra needles ,some threaded needles and extra pins. Come in handy!
I re stitched my Spring Time Mat with my House
Before I stitched in matching colors.Did not show up very well. I also made another
