I had several people ask for the Cottage Love design in an 8 inch size. So I ran a poll to find out if many people wanted an 8 inch version of the Cottage Love design. I can sew an 8×11 inch design so decided I would make one landscaped to fit my hoop plus an 8 inch cottage by itself.
This design requires 33 thread changes and 19 colors, when stitched as shown.
This landscaped version of Cottage Love is a large scene 8×11 inches (200 x 280mm). The cottage itself is a bit larger than 8 inches across.
I sewed the white in this house with cream color polar fleece. The rest of the appliques and background fabrics are wool. The roof is wool fabric I felted for this purpose.
The cat is a button. Consider adding pearls to the flower centers for additional texture and a more elegant finish.
We have linked products to cats, dogs, birds, chicken, and flower buttons for the landscape designs. Do a search for Button.
