Fabric ATC

Last week I brought some ink sprays and muslin fabric down from the workshop to the kitchen table and played around dying some background swatches… Tonight in the workshop I created an ATC with one of the backgrounds..

I’m still practicing with the whole sewing thing, and have loads of ideas in my head what I want things to look like, but it’ll take me a while to get there so just taking baby steps at the moment… I guess it will be like the very first cards I made, I thought they were brilliant, and when I look back now I cringe lol… This fabric ATC is the same, I love it… but a couple of years down the line I may think differently 😉

There are several layers to this ATC..

  • Backing (bottom layer) is non furry hessian with a small weave
  • Middle layer is grey felt
  • Top Layer is ink sprayed Muslin
  • Embelished with Seam binding and satin ribbon offcuts from a project i’m working on at the moment 🙂
  • Its all stitched with Silver Gutterman Thread
  • There’s some Bugle beads in the 4 corners attached to a small square of seam binding.
