Today we make a Quiet book for a little girl who loves Hello Kitty. We start with the outside of Kitty's house, next week we set up the rooms and then we make Kitty and her friends and their clothes.
How to make the front and back of Kitty's house
We almost always use the blanket stitch but sometimes we use the lockstitch. We used the lockstitch on the door-window, the letterbox and on the grass in the back garden.
We drew a house but you can download the template.
Cut out the house, cut the figures later on.
Pin the house and the roof on felt, we choose white & pink.
Cut out both house and roof then pin them on Fiberfill.
Cut out the roof including Fiberfill.
Blanket stitch the roof on the house.
Cut out the door and windows.
Sew the roof on the house.
Trace the windows on the felt.
Cut the windows open.
Cut the circle and the slit from the door.
Cut out the 'glass' for all windows, the door knob and the letterbox.
Pin all the loose parts on the house then sew them on too.
Cut out of felt - using the pattern - the back of the house, the window and the roof, sew it on.
Cut the grass for the garden as well, use pinking shears for the top and sew it on.
Cut the filling for the front and the back of the house already, the front with a chimney and the back without one. Pin them on.
You can fill the garden with buttons and flowers.
At Schröder Fashion Fabrics we found these cute Hello Kitty buttons.
The book's cover is ready now, we continue next week. Then we cut the rooms and we fill them with furniture, that works easier. See you then!
