Grimm ATCs

Over on UKS I have joined in the Grimm fairy tales ATC swap, I'm in 2 groups, so I have made 20 ATCs 10 for each group, I choose the stories, The Elves and the Shoemaker and one I hadn't heard of before The Spirit in the Bottle. These are being posted off to Rebecca who is making them into little books before sending home.
For the Elves and shoemaker, I printed out a picture and coloured it in with my promarkers, I think I need a little more practice to get my shading right! I sewed on a little piece of leather style fabric, punched holes and put in some eyelets added ribbon and a little shoe charm :)
For the spirit in the Bottle, I printed out the words of the story as a background, added an image, a piece of the magic cloth and a little silver axe.
Look forward to getting these back and seeing what everyone else has done :)

These are stunning Yolanda and you've really captured the stories so well. The stitching is fab and I adore the little axe charms with the piece of cloth. Yummy!
