Blog Giveaway Day 13



This is my favorite of all the postcards and atcs I've shown. I painted fusible web and fused it to white felt. I added wool roving, soy silk, and yarns, and punched. I cut it into strips and wove the strips, then punched some more. I cut it into two atcs. I added more soy silk, and realized I'd made a heart, so I added yarn to emphasize the heart. I added a silk flower and balled up some yellow yarn for the flower center. Then I fused this to some Pelmet Vilene (thinner than Timtex, but with 2 layers of felt, all I needed was a bit of stiffening, no added thickness), fused some muslin to the back, and satin stitched the edges.

Remember to leave me a comment if you're interested in winning this.

That's so pretty! It sounds so complicated when you explain how to do it. I'm simply not capable of such beautiful work.
