Selvage ATC’s

I participated in a few ATC swaps and had the same partners for 2 of them. I made my ATC’s for Ruth, who’s work I have seen since the very first TAST! Of course I had to use TAST stitches on her ATC, woven trellis, French knots and woven detached chain stitch. It’s been 6 weeks since I sent it to her, but I still hope it will arrive.
And this is the second ATC I made for Ruth. This time I wove the selvages and partly covered it with fancy organza, which I attached with French knots. This one arrived after only 8 days!
These pretty ATC’s are made for me by Arlyna in China. I like the words on the first ATC. . .
. . . and the cute label and Ikea selvage on the second ATC.
Thank you Arlyna!

    You have made and received some nice ATCs. I hope Ruth gets her card in the end.

    1. I always think of quilting fabric when I make something of selvages, never thought of Ikea fabric! If Ruth doesn't get her ATC soon, I just sent her a new one, another excuse to use TAST stitches!

    1. Thank you! ATC stands for Artist Trading Card. They are to be traded, not sold. It's a piece of art sized 2.5 x 3.5 inch in any medium, it's fun! I've been collecting and making them for many years.
