This was my recent article on ATCs in the newest Sew Somerset. I love how they started the photos off in these bright reds, it really catches the readers attention I think? I made all these little "throw rugs" or at least that's what I called them, and then I attached those to my ATCs. They turned out pretty good I think. The article talks about how being so busy you sometimes don't even have time to make an ATC, and then when someone asks to trade with you, you don't have any available. I altered one of those Maya Road lunch pails and then filled it with ATCs. So now I'm ready for an impromptu trade.
