fabric ATC – Artist trading card design by me

Hello Guys,

I am participating in an ATC swap, organized by Ali from Very Berry Handmade. I have never made any of these, and didn’t get any, so I was simply blind, when I joined to the competition.

My first realization was: OMG, the size is so small! I wanted to make something … then I had to change my mind, and threw my original work. Something else came to my mind, here are the progress pictures:

Again and again

Hello Guys,

I am always getting back to my project list for this year, but it’s spring, and we are always going somewhere…. where I cannot bring my sewing machine, and I look funny if I am making pullovers in the summer… 🙂 So I have to do something else. I am doing another swap crafts, so there will be some new creations soon (I’ll send one of them in Tuesday), but until that, here are some new creations from the old style.
