ATC exchange- Sewing

 My ATC group meets monthly and each month we have a theme.  This month the theme was stitching/sewing.
 This is my 1-4-1 card- we make an additional card- a special card- for an exchange before the rest of the cards.  I sewed on eyelet fabric, added lace and ribbon and a collage image.
 This is how I add my ID on the back- I saftey pin it on:
Here are the rest of the ATC's I made:
 Rogue Redhead stamp- colored with Copics and Gold metallic thread sewn around the edges. This fits the Dress Down challenge to use just one designer paper at Rogue Redhead stamps challenge HERE
 Rogue Redhead stamp, sentiment Create with TLC-  paper pieced gloves.

McMahon Five Designs digi  -Colored with Copics

House Mouse (I did not need to say that, did I)

Bugaboo digi image colored with Copics- the embossing highlighted with Creative Inspirations paint.

SU image, I made this with Ranger Distress inks- winter colors on a manilla folder. Lots of glitz with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen.

These are the swap ATC's I recieved:
Lt Mari- the eyes, nose, mouth and buttons are hand sewn as well as the outer rim

Rt Mary W- fabric fused onto felt, stitched around the edge. There are beads sewn on and stars with beads in the center.

Lt Harriet and Rt Cindy- the image was printed on a fusable canvas

Sandy- free form stitching, Diane- stitching on the tree and on the border- love the star button

Lt Marcey and Rt Carol- can yousee the hand stitched star?

Lt Debbie- used wrapping paper for the tree, embossing, stencils. Diane S- stitching on fabric and outside sponged in distress ink and fringed around the border.

Lt- Harriet- the 1-4-1 card that I rec'd.   Lori- patwork with Zig Zag.  The Joy banner done with Christmas tree punch.

I missed a couple of meetings- so I received a few swaps from members :
Diane S- everything Tim theme

Diane S- metal theme and recycling -flower is the inside of a cheetos bag.

Mari- Zentangle theme.

Onto another year and alot of new great challenges!

Oooh, Shelly, they're beautiful! I've never done an in-person ATC swap, but even the on-line ones have all be a ton of fun. It's so cool to see what everyone else has made for the same theme. Sounds like you had an awesome day!

Wow! So many goodies in one post, I can't possibly comment on each one. There certainly is a lot of creative talent in your ATC swap group, and you definitely fit right in with them! Every card is special, but I especially love the vintage ones. And your first ATC in your post is spectacular! Thank you for such a thorough review of all the ATC's and all the pics, it must have taken a while to post!
