Roof:
I used Red yarn to crochet 3 blocks measuring 4 inches by 4 inches sew 3 sides together to form a triangle.  I don't have a pattern for the 2 triangles I crochet to enclose the roof which I stuffed with fiber fill.
Sew the roof to the base of the house use picture as a guide. Before you completely sew the roof on stuff with fiber fill till firm make sure to press sides in to form a box.


 

Step 3: Details on House

Use dark  brown to Crochet a rectangle 1 3/8th  inches wide by 1 1/2 inches tall leave a long enough tail to sew door to the front of the house.

Windows:
Use the blue yarn ch 7, yarn over turn and double crochet in the 5th ch from hook. Double crochet to the end fasten off.

Frame for windows:
Use the same yarn as the door, make a chain long enough to go around outer edge of window. Sew the chain around the edge of the window then sew windows to the house.

Vine:
Use a lighter Green to make a chain with a long tail to sew back into the chain stitching the chain on each side to form the leaves.

Chimney:
Use brown to crochet a rectangle 4 inches long by 2 inches wide. Sew the 2 inch sides together to form  a box.  Pinch the sides evenly spaced  and crochet down all the sides to create an edge.  Sew the chimney to the roof.
To make the smoke I used cotton that I brushed out then formed into a heart shape puff of smoke.
