At first, I felt guilty about cutting into my "art"...but then I rationalized that by cutting into them, they could finally see the light of day and be appreciated for their beauty and texture. As a bonus, I wouldn't need to keep finding new places to store them.
So I went to work trimming them into 2x3" pieces, fused with some heavy duty interfacing and backed in solid black. I added some minimal quilting and zig zag stitching for binding...and came up with 7 fun ATCs to swap.
I was also pleased to see some of them were selected in the first round of swapping!
I look forward creating and swapping more ATCs in September! Perhaps I will actually start my ATCs earlier than 2-3 days before the meeting?!?
