Generally sized 3.5 by 2.5 inches, ATCs are made to be swapped with other like minded people who enjoy working mainly with fabric and fibre.
I say “mainly” because many people also use paper and mix their media in both their ATCs and their Postcards.
These ATCs were fabricated as part of the National Celebration of Stitch, and our Be Creative group under the leadership of Myfanwy Hart organised this swap as our “part ” of the celebration.
The card above was made using a lavender batik as foundation, and back stitching my initials.
Then using stranded rayon thread two lines of three X-stitches were added.
Finally, using a home dyed half inch silk ribbon, a
looped flower was added.
The second ATC employed some Gelli-plate printed fabric in a dusky pink toning. Running stitches were added around the white abstract shapes and in two of the shapes a dusky pink stranded thread was looped through the stitches.
Bead stitched teal ribbons and a floral braid completed the card.
These will fly out to new homes in the UK in the next couple of days.
