Just Another Feather in her Cap CLOTH ATC

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I promised I'd post an update on this ATC after I 'translated it' from digital to cloth.  I've been so busy doing digital work lately that I forgot how much I enjoy by hand work and I'm hoping to steer away from the BLUE SCREEN as much as possible, while still keeping up with my Creative Team requirements.  I'll have a post updating all of the various new packs that have just been listed for sale later this week.  Some of them are still a shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh secret! 

So, here's 3 snapshots of it in progress.  If you look closely, you'll see the needle in one photograph - which I planted there on purpose to create a perspective.  I've finished the machine sewing, added a couple of embellishments (button and little feather charm) and am working on the embroidery now for the front.  Time in  so far, approximately 5 hours (including the digital comp).

Thanks for all of your encouragement!  It keeps me motivated.

What a difference a few days make! Trudi, no one does fabric pieces quite like you. Love the little details. Where on earth did you ever find such a tiny button?!? Just Perfect!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Gorgeous!!! The picture looks better on fabric - in my opinion - it´s more ´real´. :) Love this very much!

I agree with Terri - just fabulous!

These are beautiful. I'm definitely going to try my hand at making some of these. The tiny size makes it feel less daunting. Although - 5 hours.. Just gorgeous.

This one is so crisp and tidy - that appeals to me as much as the soft and more subtle layering I think of, usually, in your work. You know crisp and tidy is part of my genetic make up, but I do appreciate the other side of the fence too. Anyway, the crispness of this one just jumps out at me and lures me in and all over it! It's so fun to see the work digi and then in sculpted fabric 3D! You are still amazing me!
