I am making ATCs for the first time and am teaching myself to embroider so I thought that I should pair the two. I am going to share the ATCs here as they are received. I've finished more than half a dozen to this point but only two have made it to their new homes. I am open to critique and comments as I am learning. Thank you! Check back later for more pieces.

Here they are then:

wildflowers: foxglove


classic Baum Oz book cover


A key with a real mirror in it!


Dinosaur skull


Richard Scarry's Lowly Worm


A spider


Macaroni and Cheese


Art Nouveau Nude Silhouette


Western Tanager with a necktie


Robot Love


Smile for the Birdie


In memory... Sprite

You know I love these.  Wink  For the wording on the "Foxglove" card, did you the red outline first, or the white lettering?

These are all amazing!  I think the spider is my favorite, too, but the foxglove is a close second...
