Fabric ATC's

I have 2 of my six fabric ATC's completed. I have never made these before and they are really fun!! It's nice to do embroidery etc. on a small scale, only 2 1/2 x 3 1/2. So the one on the left is for someone who loves science fiction. I got the idea of "2 Mars 4 summer vacation" from my son. Mars is his favorite planet (besides Earth) and he imagines going there. The one on the right is for someone who was open to any design, so I made her a yo-yo bouquet.

For the construction I made 2 "cards" out of fabric, the back is a light color so I could put my info on it. Then I used craft fuse on both pieces. I did my design on the front, info on back. I put a little dab of fabric glue in the middle when I sandwiched them together and then satin stitched around the edges. With the craft fuse, glue and stitching they are pretty stiff and will hold there shape well I think.

  1. I can't wait to see them all (and see what you get back too!). I've never tried these so I'm anxious to check them out!


Tell me something good! ;)
