Christmas quilting

This is the ballet bag I made for my 7 y.o. niece Matilda. Purple has been her favourite colour for as long as I can remember, this year pink has become another favourite.

The ballerina is an iron on patch. I was going to applique a pair of ballet slippers but this caught my eye and I thought it would look better.

These are a couple of the ATC's I made for a recent swap, I must have deleted the picture of the third one I made. I've been playing with the macro setting on the camera, looking at these pictures I need a little more practice.

I am also in a Christmas postcard swap and finished off my postcards today, they are all ready to mail in the morning.

That is a pretty ballet bag, and those postcards are lovely. I especially like the one that looks like a present. I've been thinking about making some gifts. Maybe I should start now for next year.

Great bag, and is that felted wool on the postcards?? Wow! What is ATC?

I'm very happy to say that, one of these postcards is now at my home... with many thanks Sue, I love it. Carol e, it feels like wool felt.
cheers - Faye

Hi Carol, Just catching up on my blog, I used commercial wool felt for the postcards, I bought it because I liked the colour. An ATC is an artist's trading card, lots of fun to make and swap. Similar to a business card but made from fabric.
