these are atc's i made for a swap called "Retro sewing pattern and dress form ".
i kept the one on the bottom right, and katie kept the one on the bottom left.
i used a variety of gleaned pictures of women who appeared on the front of sewing patterns and added bits of sewing ephemera...buttons, trims, lace, pins, toile, fabric, snaps, hooks and eyes, thread label, etc. and, of course, i sewed on the cards - mostly straight-stitch. the bottom left has a fancy stitch.
it's funny...with a swap, i never know if i have gone in the right direction, but i guess that is what swaps are all about .... personal interpretation!
i need to make more of these!
