Do you love ATCs?

Do you love fabric, sewing and embellishments?

Then this is the swap for you!

1) Make 1 fabric ATC to send to each partner (a total of 2 ATCs).

2) Fabric ATCs are 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches, include a piece of fabric, one sided fusible batting, and a cardstock backing. You may also use a stiff fusible, a fabric backing and write on it with permanent fabric marker.

3) Fabric ATCs are hand or machine sewn (patchwork, appliqué, thread painting, embroidery, beadwork, buttons, charms, ... embellish them to your heart’s content or not).

4) Be sure to write the following on the back, the name and number of the ATC, date made, artist name and location (e.g. Cat #1, May 2010, Sassy Susie, Stanton, South Dakota).

5) This MONTHLY SWAP is the sender’s choice, NO THEMES, but looking at your partners’ profiles to see what they have a passion for is advised. Enjoy letting your creative juices flow!

6) Be sure to include a note with the name of this swap and your Swap-bot ID.

Participant Screening:

Must have a fully completed profile (not just a few lines).

Must have completed 5 swaps, have a 4.8+ status and no unexplained 1 or 3’s.

I will list all flakes and will angel, but I trust that won’t be necessary.


We’d all like to do a swapper’s dance of joy when we open our envies/packages, but remember ratings are based on meeting the swap's requirements. Surpassing the swap requirements is a sign of generous swappers who take pride in their creativity, by enclosing an extra ATC and/or a small surprise. Pretty packing and postal presentation is also enjoyable. Be sure to rate your partner as soon as you receive the swap. Happy Swapping!

Looking forward to another month of swapping Fabric ATCs with all of you. I don't know about everyone else who is participating monthly, but these are some majorly pretty, well thought out and high quality ATCs. Beautiful work sewing sisters. Cheers, Le Papillon Vert.

P.S. Please feel free to positively comment on the quality of the swapping here in the comment section each month. If you do have a concern contact me personally. No public shaming here.

Thanks for the compliment, yomousey. Yes, I did make that one. I love fabrics and embellishing them is such fun.

What an amazing group of artists. I have just received my two fabric ATCs from "Fabric ATC Swap #2," and they were fantastic. I am so proud to host this swap and thrilled to enjoy peoples excellent artwork. May you all be enjoying the swap as much as I am. There is no reason to tell anyone in this bunch to put more than just a sticker on their ATCs. There are tons of talented swappers in this group. Cheers, Le Papillon Vert

I am putting up a note here on the message board that in the directions and requirements for the swap it states that Fabric ATCs are to be machine or hand sewn. Please make sure that if you participate in this swap that you understand this and have clearly read the swap requirements.
