The Artists Village Blog Tour

The Dotted Swiss Mocha house - part of the Artists Village that Kathy York put together;  it is made with Mistyfused commercial cotton fabrics and Timtex was used as the stabilizer. 

The corrugated roof has loops so it can button onto the house easily.

The cup and saucer is attached with heavy duty red wire from the roof

That's a separating zipper in the corner.  The roof can be unbuttoned, and the panels of the house can be zipped apart, and lay flat,  for easy shipping.

The front door has a red Bakelite button that is surrounded with zipper trim for the window.  Zipper trim also frame the door, and a pull is the door knob.  Blue rick rack borders the door.

This was such a fun project!  Bringing my house, with a cup and saucer, to a new level!
