First cut out all the pattern pieces. Then find the center along the bottom edge of the house and stitch the door in to place. Follow by stitching the little hearts in to the windows, and then the windows on to the house.
For the sequin roof start at the bottom edge of the roof line and stitch 6 sequins in to place Center row should be 5 sequins Top row should be 4.
Now line the front and back house pieces together and start stitching together at the right side of the door, all around the outer edge. When you reach the center of the top edge of the roof slide the ribbon/ric rac in to place and stitch over a few times to secure. Continue your way around the house until you reach the bottom of the left side.
Stuff the poly fill in to the little house through the opening, however firm you would like! Then continue to stitch the bottom of the house closed.
Enjoy making a whole little village!
