Blog Giveaway Day 4



For this ATC, 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 added more soy silk, and realized I'd made a 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.

Love the colors in this one too, and isn't it fun when something emerges you weren't expecting? Would love to win one of your designs to see an experts work. Roxanne

Thanks for the idea for the center of the silk flower...so much more interesting than just adding a bead!

It is so much fun to see something just emerge as you work. Very pretty ATC. I wonder if the soy silk would bother my sister's allergy to soy. The protein is mostly gone into the tofu and that's what people are usually allergic to. She's allergic to wool too but only if she is near enough to it (like only one layer of fabric between her and the wool isn't enough as it is for most sensitive people).

Some interesting products, that's for sure.
