It is a 5 for 5 swap and I decided to portray both the Christian and commercial side of Easter on my ATC's.
I have not added a lot of heavy embellishments mainly for postage reasons.
I made the bunnies by using card stock and a bunny punch and I put Diamond glaze on them to give them a glossy effect.
I am posting 3 of the 5 here for you to see.
The background on the first one is a bit of hand dyed fabric that I did years ago. The backgrounds on the second two are woven.
I have a friend who owns a patchwork shop and she gave me this big bag of strips of fabric.
Most people know what a fat quarter is--ie half of a half a metre of fabric.
My friend would cut the fabric off the bolt in half metre lengths and then cut the fold off and end up with 2 fat quarters (are you still with me) well the strips of folded material are what I used to weave and make the background.
What I did was to wind a dark perle cotton around a 6" square wire frame to form the warp(or is it weft) and then proceeded to weave the thin strips of fabric under and over the threads.
I selected colours to make it look like a scene.
When I had finished weaving I ironed it onto a piece of iron on interfacing to support it.
Then I cut it from the frame and stitched over it to hold it all together.
I cut it into ATC size and Stitched grasses etc. --glued on the bunny and hand stitched a cross and there you have it.
I hope the people who get them will be happy.
