Tonya's Houses




I spent Saturday afternoon playing with fabric and making Tonya’s houses. What fun! I couldn’t stop at just one. I have 2 great pieces of fabric, one has little dogs on it, the other has cats. So I decided my houses would each have a dog or kitty at the door. I would like them to be a bit more wonky. So I am going to have to make some more. I think with a lot of practice they will get better. My 13 year old daughter loves them! She was going through my print outs of instructions for both the houses and letters and stated that we needed to buy all of Tonya’s books and patterns. That her quilts were the best! I agree! Thank you so much Tonya for sharing yourself so freely with us.

Laura - they are so fun! I love the animals in the doors! Too bad we can't buy Tonya's books isn't it!!!!

Very sweet of your daughter - thank her for me. And encourage her to sew some houses too.

These houses are sooo much fun. Now don't be offended, I know they are trees, but when I first saw them I thought "pyramids with roads leading up to them". You have to forgive me - Egypt on the brain.

Your houses are great. I thought you had made Pyramids as well. I said, "How clever she is." I guess art can be whatever you want it to be. LOL

You did a great job on the houses! I took the house class with Tonya and there were many in the room who didn't get them to look half as nice as yours came out!
