Very Berry Handmade ATC Swap

A while ago now I signed up to the Very Berry Handmade ATC swap. rather than a traditional ATC card, the ones that we were making were stitched ones. The theme was ‘something new’ and this was what I made:



It fits the ‘something new’ theme pretty well as it is the first ATC I have ever made, the fist project I have ever designed myself, the first mainly hand stitched project I have done (I haven’t really done any hand sewing before!) and the first time I have used the zigzag setting on my sewing machine (this definitely shows!) My ATC went to Catherine and I was pretty nervous about sending it because Catherine has a lot more sewing experience than I do but she has assured me that she loves it (as do her daughters…I should have made three!)

I received an ATC from a different member of the swap, and I got this beautiful ATC from Amy:

I think the design is adorable and she even put some pink on there just for me! I want to say a huge thank you to her for all of her hard work that went into making it and I will treasure it.

Also, thank you to Ali for organising the swap! I can’t wait to get involved in the next round! Keep an eye on Ali’s blog for the next sign up so you can join the swap too!

    Interesting…I’ve not seen hand sewn trading cards before. Your ballerina piece is so pretty! I love the added tutu. So sweet. What will you do with the hand sewn cards that you get?

      Thank you 🙂 I am currently hunting for the perfect tin/box to keep them in! I am eager to build up a little collection but I just haven’t got anywhere to keep them yet!
