I joined in a No Paper or cardboard ATC swap at The Sum of All Crafts Yahoo group last month- (the link to join this group is HERE before I forget...... )we exchanged 3 ATC's and recieved 3 ATC's back.
I made sewn fabric ATC's- here they are:
I have never done anything like this before- and I am always up for trying something new! I saw THIS post and This post, and WOW- can I try to sew an ATC- if Lynn can, I can...try.....LOL
I took a piece of eyelet fabric and measured out my dimensions- now a finished ATC measures 2 1/2" x 3 1/2- so I added 1/4" on all sides for the seam- except in the middle- as I simply folded the fabric in half at the middle.
Once I have all of the measuring done, sew on lace, trims, etc....I also used collage pictures from The Sum of all Crafts for my ATC's. I do put right sides together and sew three sides, and 1/2 of the final side- then turn in the seam allowance of the final edge and finish it off....I finished mine by top stitching- I went all of the way around....mine are not perfectly straight- but that is what makes them unique, right???
Here are the ATC's I received in the Swap:
How creative is this idea??? This is needlepoint canvas..... The fiber is adhered around the edges. Very cool! This is by the Swap Hostess Claudine.
I hope you enjoyed my ATC post- I have a few more ideas for making future ATC's now!
Thanks for stopping by!
