Every year around Christmas I buy a Canvas with a snowy magical and all festive scene with a snowed in cottage, all cosy, comfortable and festive looking. And it’s those very canvases that completely inspired me to design this handbag. Yes, I foremost designed this cottage to be my handbag but it did something I didn’t expect - it became a snowed in cottage in its own right for my children who started playing with it.
So, ready to have a head turner of a bag, the cutest door stop, portable dollhouse or something decorative where you keep all Christmas chocolates (Quality Street Hideaway - genius)?

This beautiful little house is for an intermediate crafter, the pattern (both available in UK and US terms) comes with photo guides as well as detailed written stitch descriptions.

I double stranded DK yarn to achieve a chunky weight yarn as well as use the same yarn single stranded.
The cottage look itself is completely customisable and adaptable, make it look like your very own house, flat block, terraced street - I cannot wait to see all your finished makes :D

Be sure to listen to lots of christmas music or watch plenty Christmas movies while working on the house, it makes it extra fun, promise.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas, Hanukkah or whatever you want to celebrate xxx Claudia
