This was challenging. The pattern calls for 4 sheets of canvas for the wall thicknesses, but I used stiff canvas and you don't need that. If I make this again, I will use ultra stiff canvas and just have one inside and one outside wall, and cut the inside walls 2 holes shorter. When the inside and outside are the same, and you're trying to join them at the corners, I got some buckling which made it harder to get together. I ended up taking out some stitches and cutting a row of holes off each side. Once you have the stitched walls the yarn thickness takes up that room. Also for the pattern for Candy Dots bracelet and necklace, I couldn't find buttons that looked like the picture. I found some buttons at the craft store that were plain white and looked like Smarties candy, so I colored them with permanent markers, but rubbed them off right away with a tissue, That left a pastel colored stain so they looked like Smarties. I made this for Christmas for my great niece and she loved it! She's 6 and tried to put all the necklaces and bracelets on at the same time so her mom could send me a picture.

This Shoppe is challenging, but worth the effort. Besides what is shown in the picture, I added a wooden plaque to bottom, covered the plaque with artificial snow and sprinkled lightly with glitter. Then I hot glued miniature snowmen, reindeer and pine tree to "yard". Inside the house, before stitching and gluing, I papered the walls with a Christmas print and the floor with a gold crinkle paper. A miniature Santa is heading out the door, an elf, aside a mini Christmas tree, peeks out the left window, and I placed a peppermint shaped chair by the right window. Also added a mini weather vane to roof. This is a gift to one of my granddaughters, who I hope will treasure for years to come, as well as think of me, fondly.
