July ATC Swap
Here is my swap for July. The theme was Sewing.
I searched Google for free sewing patterns, I found this pattern for dolls clothes, downloaded and printed off the pattern picture. I then cut it down to size.
I then searched for sewing sayings - I picked this one as it relates to all crafts. "Sewing and crafts fill my day not to mention the living-room, bedroom and closets". I printed the saying in size 10 font. I trimmed around the saying.
I then glued both the image and the saying to an ATC card using a glue stick.
Distressed both with Tim Holtz Vintage photo ink pad.
To cover the join between the two, I hand sewed with gold thread.
I then hand sewed 3 buttons onto the card using the same gold thread.
