By doing the embroidering the cottage patterns yourself, you can customize them to fit your home’s decor. If you have noticed when you can buy embroidered items at the store, you are stuck with their color scheme.
One thing about making embroidered cottage items for the home is you can make the base of the cottage any shade of brown and the roof a darker brown or red. By giving the cottages a two-tone look, the cottages can become two dimensional.
When there are other items, like flowers, trees and birds added to the cottage scene, other colors can be added to match the rest of the room’s decor. This can give the kitchen, bedroom and bathrooms a pop of color without a large expense.
