Some more Fabric ATCs

Antique Fabric ATCs
I made these fabric ATCs using some antique embroidered fabric. I absolutely love it! It si like an old patchwork quilt and no matter which way you cut it, something beautiful always makes it’s way onto your ATC. I sed very little embellishment on top as I did not want to spoil the look and feel of the original fabric!
(Fabric is available at http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6414967 I have some more pieces available so if it says sold out let me know!)

    How do you finish the edges?

      I usually do the collage on a thin piece of ATC sized card and glue all the fabric and lace edges at the back. I then add another piece of thin card or paper to make the back look finished. Sometimes I make big sheets of fabric collage and then it is just a matter of making sure that I apply glue all over the element I am sticking down and making sure that the glue is evenly spread and every thing is stuck down securely. After that I cut ATC sized pieces and just add some card backing. Hope this helps!
