ATCs for Embellish Stitch and Enrich Class Swap

Done with my embellisher machine for a swap in my Embellish Stitch and Enrich Class:



I painted fusible web and fused it to white felt. I added some soy silk and silk throwsters waste over top and embellished. I used some yarn I bought from Terri Stegmiller and made the hearts. Then I fused the felt to pelmet vilene with muslin on the back, cut into atcs and satin stitched the edges. I stamped the words on newsprint that I'd used under painting and fused them on with Misty Fuse.



Blue ones: I painted fusible web and fused it to white felt. I added some soy silk and silk throwsters waste over top and embellished. I added some snips of yarn, covered it with a light blue chiffon scarf, and embellished some more. Then I used my circle attachment for my Viking and stitched circles all over. Finally, I fused the felt to pelmet vilene with muslin on the back, cut into atcs and satin stitched the edges.

Red ones: I started with black felt, fused some Wonder Under onto it, then fused foil to the Wonder Under. After that, I added bits and pieces of yarn, soy silk, mulberry bark, and wool roving. I didn't have any chiffon scarves, so I put some tulle on top to help keep it all in place and then punched away. When I was done, I pulled the tulle off. l added more fibers on top. I used some yarn I bought from Terri Stegmiller and made the hearts. Then I fused the felt to pelmet vilene with muslin on the back, cut into atcs and satin stitched the edges. I stamped the words on a paper towel I had used when I painted some fabric paper and fused them on with Misty Fuse.

You seem to be having loads of fun playing with your fibers. Are they your favorite medium? Mine has moved from knitting to beading but I am doing a lot of drawing lately too. It's too bad I am so slow at all of it.

freebird - fabric and fibers are definitely my favorite media. I am a quilter first - or I could say fiber artist, if that doesn't sound to haughty!
