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...


  1. That's really cute. I need to get more ATCs done. I was doing them for a while but my Smash Books have taken over my brain.

  2. Hi Emika,
    I'm here from Swap-bot, blog comment. I read your profile there. You are good with rhyme. That was fun. Cute crafts here and I love the little rug with the kitty on it. You are crafty. I'm following you now and hope you will follow on mine too.

  3. Wow that turned out awesome. I love the idea.

    I make mistakes like that all the time. It really makes me great creative to try and cover or alter a mistake. :)
