Remember when you were in grade school and the day was broke up a bit with lunch and then recess? You got to go outside and play for a half hour? That was my favorite part of the day. I was able to visit with my friends, swing, and giggle with my friends.
As I was making the ATCs for Kate’s Birthday ATC Swap I was remembering that time. I was inspired by some plastic buttons I picked up thrifting. They are kid buttons which are dancing, skateboarding, pogo sticking, running and playing.
The background is composed of random strips of fabric in play colors. I cut one inch strips and then pieced them together. On top of that I fused a bright color confetti yarn and some ribbon yarn pieces and topped that with black tulle. I then zig zagged the outside with bright pink thread.
I am quite pleased with how they came out. It looks like they are having a lot of fun, doesn’t it?
Since I am behind (as usual) for the swap, I made a month ahead while I was at it. Nine in all. I also had some left over fabric so made 3 more in case anyone would be interested in a 1:1 trade. The three below are the 3 available for trade.
