    My cards are in the making, I'm quite happy with how they are turning out and I was able to finish some during my holiday, but I need to make one more, or two. I will pm for your address already, Trini, hoping to be ready to mail before the weekend!

    xstitcher, I think I will use your idea this time and just use fabric pen for writing in the back. I've used paper/cardstock background in some previous fabric ATCs, but this time I think they are so sturdy that it is unnecessary.
    Welcome to take a look at my blog, Instagram account and APC wishlist!

    I'm glad to hear that so many are getting their cards finished up. I know I said stiff backing in the instructions but w/ fabric I meant just that it be backed and not all floppy, not neccasarily(sp?) cardboard stiff. I think everyone realized that though. It's good to hear the tips on how each of you finish the backs of your cards.

    Here are my little stitched ATCs. They are all mounted onto cardstock. I'm planning on dropping them at the post office on my way to work this morning.

    Here are my four cards - free motion stitching to do the trees and zigzagging around the edges. The centre of the cards is pelmet vilene, so they are fairly stiff. I backed them with a handmade (not by me) paper this time, so there's no card involved, but the vielene is very strong and not at all floppy...

    I'll pm you for your address trini, and get these in the mail when I'm in the US - I'll be in the Washington DC area for a week.

    My cards are in the mail now! I'm sorry I didn't make it before the weekend, after all. I hope there is still enough time. I will post pics later today.

    Here are my cards - sorry about the blurring - comes with the scanning. They were mailed today.
    I had a chance to try out 'confetti cloth'. You take a variety of left over thread, cloth, fiber etc. and apply to cloth. I've seen variations and chose to use tulle to hold it together. I used my sewing machine then hand stitched and added crocheted elements.

    I dropped all the returns in the mail this morning. Everyone should have their I-trader from me. If you don't, let me know.

    When you get your returns remember to leave me an I-trader and post to the group and/or leave you rocks so that everyone knows who got their cards.

    Thanks for making my first swap a success!
