Stitching ATCs

love my little mini-collage from leftover scrapbook paper, needle (size 90/14 uni) went thru multiple layers

a leaf print i did when my daughter and i were stamping with leaves, watercolor paper; the block printing ink cracked and the dust isn't good for the machine, i imagine

on watercolor paper, the quads are watercolored inchies, the flower is from my daughter's worn out sandals (she wears sandals year round, in winter with socks)

abstract acrylic atc, weak attempt at aligning stitches

little mandala atc, new stitching, practicing freehand, getting close to edges, aligning

These are awesome, Tammy!!! Just remember to keep a dedicated needle for sewing paper vs. one for sewing fabric. Hugs, Terri xoxoxo

The leaf print is my favorite of these ATC! Oh. Great links, as usual! :-)
