Fabric Postcard and Atcs

This is what I made from my WIP background.  A postcard, which I'm going to use for a swap.  I just cut it to size (6" x 4") from the original piece.  I did a bit of free motion stitching all over, added a piece of mesh and a button which I threaded a piece of purple hemp through.  I attempted to make some fabric beads and used the blue velvet one on this piece.

I also got 2 atc sized pieces out of the remainder.  This one I sewed a piece of netting over the top, did a bit more free motion sewing and used my heat tool to burnish the materials. I threaded a piece of the remnanets through the mesh and added another hand made fabric bead.

And lastly I added a piece of netting and left it in tact, added a piece of wire mesh and a hand made bead

Ooohh love these Sam. Your fabric beads are lovely. Great effect with the burnishing too.

Your work takes my breath away Sam - ever since you have come back from your holiday, and also got your sewing machine - you seem to have been touched by 'magic'.

I must look up my old sewing machine manual and see if I can remove the gripper thingy so that I can try free range sewing. I saw a television snippet ages ago and was amazed at how easy (they made it look) to create such patterns. Now that I have seen yours I really must get my act together to see if I can give it a go.

Your birds/wings has to be the best I have seen using the TH die cuts. Stamping onto the cage bars is genius - really gives it texture.

I love your work and your dogs! I would love one of those. I have been thinking of doing some fabric postcards and your techniques are so helpful
