I had two partners in the Tiny House swap on Craftster, but today I can only show one of the houses I made, because my partner in Australia hasn't received hers yet.
There are so many different directions a crafter could go in when making a tiny house--it could be paper, wood, fabric, metal; flat or 3-d--and probably a lot of other things that never occurred to me. I stuck with what I know best, which is fabric; and because I've been on a fabric collage kick lately, that's how I made my partner's tiny house. It is a 4" x 4" wallhanging; I sewed a brown cord to the top for hanging.
I sketched my idea, then cut all the fabrics free-hand, which is both fun and fast! The roof of the house gave me the most trouble; at first it was too small and rectangular, so I tried again and made it tall and wonky, like a wizard's hat. That's why I call this the Wizard's Cottage. All the fabrics are cotton, except the tree, which is dupioni silk; it has a nice slubbiness to it, and a little shine, which makes it an interesting contrast to the other fabrics. All the sewing on the front was done by machine. I then layered it with cotton batting and fabric backing, and blanket-stitched it all together by hand. I'm quite pleased with it, and my partner is too!
I expect to be able to show you Tiny House #2 later this week; it is constructed the same way as this one, but the look is completely different!
