Japanese ATC's


Here I am back again - I thoroughly enjoyed the Olympics and managed to get bobbins painted in the mornings and crafty stuff in the evenings ... I just need to get some time to load the camera program on this new computer and then I can pop the pics on to this blog.
The ATC on the right was made by my mate April ... she is obviously doing Japan as her theme at our embroidery group haha! ... you already know that my theme is Egypt haha... I love April's work and fell in love with this ATC so I made the one on the left for her (I made an additional 6 to swap at the Aus Lace Guild Conference week which starts on Sept 21st ) ... I painted the Japanese ladies with Acrylics on calico then appliqued them onto some red/black fabric which was a dress I got at a local "op shop" (Charity shop) ...I added some tatted lace and made it look like a fan and I made some of the tiniest tassels ever haha! I have quite a few ATC's to take and any which are left I will pop on here ...so stay tuned!
