ANYTHING BUT PAPER SWAP
This is a 5 for 5 swap and I chose felt to make my ATCs with. Normally I needle felt my wool to a piece of felt, but in this case I made a wet felted background piece that I cut into ATC sized pieces and then needle felted my flower onto that. I further embellished the ATCs with beads and perle cotton thread. The back is then lined with a piece of felt that has been buttonhole stitched to the front.
The small felted art doll pin is the hostess gift for this swap. I used a leftover background piece of the ATC felt for her body.
