ATC In Black and Flesh Tone






















I wove the background with uneven cotton strips and secured it with one of the fancy stitches on my sewing machine. Actually, that stitch looks like the one you see on crazy quilts. (I must remember that - stitch #18 on the sewing machine dial). Then I sewed on the face and added some embroidery scribble. A few matching beads on the black patches, a felt backing and blanket stitch around the edges to finish it off.

Great ATC. I love what you have done with the embroidered halo effect around the face.

I love the face detail and stitching on this one Inga. I am thinking of starting to make atc's as they are small and fun. I would love to start collecting and swapping atc's. Belinda
