Owl Embroidery on Artist Trading Card

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!

  1. The owl is real cute! (Seeing this ATC, I should work with fabric more… maybe start small too? ATC’s are so cool to make!)

  2. I love your little embroidered owl…so sweet! I think you’re right about practicing on an ATC; that’s good advice for trying out any new medium, because you are working on a small scale, but still end up with a great little project in the process!

  3. He’s very cute and what a lovely idea for an ACEO! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for your sweet comment. :)xx
