First ATC


This is the first ATC I have ever made. I have two to do for a swap on Stitchin Fingers.
The leaf is cut out and appliqued on to the main fabric using back stitch in perle cotton. The back and front of the ATC are stitched together using blanket stitch. There is no machine stitching at all on this ATC. D even realised that the letters were my initials, so that is an improvement on my last signature.
I have also got all the pieces ready to put together for the other ATC and two fabric postcards. Will keep you updated on progress.

This is very cool. What kind of stiffener (if any) did you use between the two fabric pieces?
