    I love your little town. Do they have a candy store? Can I be mayor?

    Does Izy know about all this? I expect she is extremely pleased to see the cottages and little town you are creating for her homeplace. I, for one, adore what you are doing. :D

    Henry I bought it at a LQS, but it went out of business a couple of years ago :evil: Look on page 2, I put a link to the Company's web site, they sell them at the same price I bought this for 3 or so years ago. It is 6 seperate patterns. The first 5 are for the individual houses, the last one is the borders and alternate blocks and finishing up.
    Awesome. Found and purchased :) Thanks Melissa

    Bev, I use Wonder Under, fusible web. I have had better luck with it than the Steam A Seam.

    Bevanger, I called Bounce Fabric Company and they do not recommend using fabric softener sheets for applique. They said that the chemicals on the sheets could change the color of the fabric after continued contact with their product. I don't know if that is still true if you wash the sheets or not.
