I have found a fair few references to these in art books.They are often grouped with ATC's as tiny collage creations.
These are the first swap from Ale C.We'll post more as the versions are received youu can also follow on Inchies Swap.
The finished deal
A possible group of tools
This is a 1x2 strip
Cut it in half rotate top inchie by 1/4 turn for two different effects
I used a fancy stitch and used the same rotation technique.Then i got really fancy and added some seed beads for effect
Inchie Houses can come in any form.I tried cellophane(too thin and split)
Thin vinyl works (recycled from packaging around a throw !)
Also felt and netting hold them well
This is a three by four house
Then I made this one into a wrap like the one in Ale's teaser.
