Let's Get Sewing ATCs
Sherri at the Stamp Shack posted a swap to get sewing on some ATCs. I had never tried, and thought it sounded like fun. While looking at old photos with my mom one afternoon, I found a sweet photo of two children holding flags. I thought it would make a great ATC - another first - using a photograph for an ATC. So, I stitched around the edges with red, stamped memories in blue and hand tinted the large flag with water color pencils. I added a heart shaped brad in the corner for a finishing touch.
We don't yet know who the children are in the photo, but my mom thinks that it may have been taken on a 4th of July at a family reunion. I've been trying to track down the story of these two children. I'll make a new post once I solve the mystery.
