Eileen was thinking about peacock when she put this ATC together - black velvet with foil added, some Angelina and some eyelash knitting yarn. There are some beads too, threaded on silver thread, all machine-stitched together. And a very lovely crocheted bracelet with beads too!
This ATC from Marja (The Netherlands) has different kinds of wool, a few little dried plants and some other fabrics which Marja doesn't know the English word for;-). Marja also dyed "old" wool blankets to make the little birds (and other things).
The third ATC that came is this lovely cross-stitched butterfly, accompanied by a matching card, from Jeannette Luttmer (Canada). This is my first cross-stitched ATC ever received, they will be treasured!Kalona (UK) used a lot of materials - fabrics, yarns, threads, papers, etc. to create this very festive-looking reddish-pink ATC. Auspicious colours for Chinese! And to tie in with Valentine's day too.
Susan Highfield (Australia) is an embroideress, and a fine one too. Such a lovely intricate-looking umbrella!
There are more, I'll show them in my next post!
Finally, I have come to the last part of the StitchMap's challenge to sew a stitcher's travel bag with accessories - a scissors case. I made it with matching tatted flowers and butterflies.
Roses to wrap up the post and my day! From DH, of course!
Thank you to all well-wishes!!
