Hi everyone…

I made this card this evening live on Ustream with all the gang round for a wee blether (chat) and some good old belly laughs… Hope Von’s painting didn’t have too many squiggles 🙂

With this being the final day of the online card class I wanted to have a try at one of the cards based on the tutorials provided in class, this is the card I made..

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.

I Heart Friendship..

The needles and threads were out in the workshop this evening 🙂

I went out shopping today and came home with loads of threads, beads and fabric 🙂

I drew a heart template freehand and then cut out some wool batting, blue fabric, Muslin and silk material, stitched it, sewed a few beads, stitched a few crosses, practiced a few new stitches…

I stamped the word friendship onto some muslin with archival ink, then machine stitched the whole thing together 🙂

I had a blast!
