Well this afternoon I managed to squeeze in some time for making some ATCs that I owed people. I decided that I would try and make them using the theory that less is more, be as minimalist as possible and still make an ATC that I think I would like to get in the mail.
Here's what I made.
These 3 are for Annie, and there wasn't a set theme, so being inspired by the selvage blog I decided to join some together. I love the patterns and markings on the selvages, and some of them have the nicest names on them.
This second ATC is for Debbi for our April swap, the theme is Autumn. I wonder if this is just too darn minimalist? lol. I tea dyed some calico, then painted a leaf and did a leaf print. I love the way a hole has come out and the viens of the leaf. I didn't want to add anything else in case it spoilt it!
This is the back side, before I write on it.
Then I made this ATC, just because! So it has no home and if you'd like to swap with me, first in first swaps! It's still on the minimalist theme, but I think it works.
Now you may have noticed my new 'old' doily? Well it was a recent purchase, and I just love the wee stitches on it, they are amazing! I think they are tiny tiny blanket stitch.
