I love mini art, always have, so this project was right up my street because these little textile cards are only 2.5" x 3.5". Did I already mention that I love mini art?
As luck would have it, I am attending a group of card makers/stampers tomorrow night and I was told that they would be trading ATC's. So I got my thinking cap on and made these 'testers' which I will give out on Wednesday (if people want them that is - they may not like that they are fabric and not paper -- oh the worry!?). Regardless, this was great practice for when I make my secret partner his/hers and eventually mail it to him/her in November. Win win.
As you can see, I made three: two spools of thread and an acorn. The acorn was a test run for the "Autumn" theme of the ATC Swap Group but I have since decided on another design. I definitely need to improve my 'drawing in stitches' technique - it is fun to do!! And of course you already know that I love raw edge applique. As like many of the new things I try, making these little mini trading cards is quite addictive!! Oh dear!!
P.S. If anyone still has a wonky house or wonky tree to send me for Wonkyville, please do so this week so you can be entered into the draw!!
Here is a little wonky tree/bush from Sonia (Fabric and Flowers) which will fit in the village of Wonkyville perfectly! Thanks Sonia :)
