Hand Stiched ATC



I have just finished a hand stitched A.T.C. for the Textile Challenge group. My challenge was to use Chevron stitch which as I am not an embroiderer I had never heard of. I managed to fined a picture with in instructions and this is the result. For the background I had some half made samples which I chopped up and painted with fabric paint. The Chevron was done in variegated man made thread. As it was a hand stitched challenge I blanket stitched around the edge.

If you were not an embroiderer before, then you certainly are now Carol. It's a lovely ATC. My friend Joan who visited your exhibition said the work was lovely.
