This month’s theme for the ATC swap at Fibre Fever is Escher. I made my ATC for Kate in the UK.
This swap was a great excuse to flip through this book.
Escher’s snakes was one of my favourites, but way too big to translate to ATC size in fabric. So I only took a small piece from the bottom at the right side of the snake’s head and stitched it in stem stitches with different threads.
After sending my ATC to Kate, I went to the Tropenmuseum to see Escher’s work. One of the first things I saw was Escher’s original study of his snakes!
I shared more photo’s of my visit to the Tropenmuseum in this Wordless Monday post.
For my Dutch readers:
