First Itty Bittys

These are my first Itty Bittys, made for Lenna's Creative Swaps. The theme is Summer. I used one of my favorite images, added some coordinating paper, and lots of stitching. I love to add stitching to paper projects. It just seems to add dimension and sometimes and unexpected touch. Don't you love those starfish charms? They were perfect for these itty bittys.

Row House Swap

These are not fabric but I still wanted to share. These are four of the houses I did for the Row House Swap on Treasure Art Trends. I decided to make a few extras and choose the ones that I wanted to keep but ended up making 4 that I will keep for myself. I think one of the reasons that I enjoyed these so much is because they are all different. They were a lot of fun to work on tho they took a little time. We are swapping 15 for 15. They had to be 4" wide but the heights could vary. Some will bind theirs into a book. I think I am going to mount mine on something and hang on the wall. I may find a way to attach them to the mounting surface so that they can be changed out every once in a while. Maybe just 8 or 9 at a time. That will still be 3 feet wide and that is probably plenty. I also have some coming from another row house swap as well as some ATCs so I should have a very nice mix!
