I had intended to blog sooner but with the holidays fastly approaching I've barely had time for anything.  I do, however, try to make time for a little sewing everyday and recently I decided that we needed Gingerbread Houses.  I came across an article in Quilting Arts Gifts Holiday 2008-2009 magazine by Jane Davilla called Fabric Gingerbread Houses and knew I had to make one.  As it turns out, I made two.  Jane's directions were easy to follow and I had most of the materials on hand.  This project was fun and quick to put together and is "calorie-free".  You simply just get to decorate and enjoy.  My granchildren were amazed and we decided that after Christmas we would make a village.

Jane Davilla is one of my favorite artists and you can find her in Quilting Arts and Cloth Paper Scissors or visit her blog.

Here are the results of my gingerbread houses . . .

I love them!  Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!  And always have FUN!


  1. Love the way these turned out. Just the right amount of detail. Even though they are fabric, they still look good enough to eat!

  2. Oh my gosh Holley, these are so cute! I love how you made them.
