Sheet of paper ATC

On Pinterest I had found this image:

I'm not sure what it is, actually - mini pillow? i-Something holder? Whatever; I liked the idea of a sheet of paper done in fabric, and wanted to recreate it. I drew out the lines with colored pens on muslin and sewed a running stitch over them with the same color. Everything was going splendidly until I decided to block the ATC (wet it and shape it) and, dah dah dah, the red pen ran all over the place:

Hm, which you can actually barely see in this picture. Anyway, other than the red schmears everywhere, the ATC is kinda cute, and I might make more later. Maybe drawing the lines with pen alone, and then embroidering words or letters. And keeping it away from water...
