A day late, because I’d rather be stitching than typing! The two artist trading cards that I talked about last week are mostly finished. Here is a view of them after trimming the excess fabric, and with one piece of embellishing trim added:
Now, here they are after about fifteen minutes of machine and hand sewing:
All that I added to each card was one piece hand dyed lace trim, three pieces funky yarn and a glass ice cream cone bead. That was it, and they end up looking wonderfully complex and multi-layered. The last step that I need to do is add a piece of muslin to the back and zigzag stitch around the edges. I also usually add a loop of ribbon to hang them. Quick, easy, and beautiful!
I am still struggling with getting my online store up and running, meanwhile I have listed some of my crazy quilt top fabric boxes to Ebay, check out my listings here.
