The first embroidered Owly

Way back when I did this year’s DIY Postcard Swap I also arranged another swap for some very creative Swedish ladies. We exchanged embroidered artist trading cards. I actually set the swap up via a group on FB, and it worked out just fine with about 35 participants from all around Sweden (plus one in Denmark and one in Finland).

Embroidered Owl 01
I created an applique owl, with embroidery as a first try. I made him just after finishing the ATC Under a Pink Moon using the same tea dyed fabric. Isn’t he adorable?

If embroidery or fabric art is something you’re interested in trying, I highly recommend you do a few ATC:s. It’s just a very neat size to work with, it’s fun to trade them and it’s perfect to experiment and play on an ATC:s. I love making them, and I have a few ongoing right now.

There were quite a a few embroidered ATC’s that was posted on the web, from that swap. Check them out for inspiration: Margot’s ATC, Madde’s (and more by Madde), Kerstin’s, Meta’s, Margareta’s! Isn’t it amazing how pretty and different these little artwork turn out?!

If you like owls, please come back soon. More owls tomorrow!
