Cozy Cottage

I'm incredibly excited to have my first pattern published!  You can find my "Cozy Cottage" in the new "Paper" issue 8 of Fat Quarterly right here.  It will be available on January 31st!
The issue is full of wonderful projects. 
I'm absolutely obsessed with houses and love making them in fabric. I made two because I wanted to illustrate how you can change the fabric and the theme of your cottage.  This would be a great gingerbread house, cooking cottage or Santa's workshop for kids.
This project allows for lots of fussy cutting and filling the windows with fun images!
If you make a cottage please include your photos in my new Flickr Group - Charise Creates Projects and in the Fat Quarterly Flickr Group
