I’ve been a member of the Fiber Art Traders Yahoo Group (affectionately known as FAT) for a couple of years now and I used to be very active. But, I went to work teaching elementary school and well everything got put on the back burner. That is until now. Now I’m teaching part time which gives me the luxury of having a little more time to create trades for this fun group.
These bookmarks are for a FAT fiber bookmark trade. I pleated black cotton fabric then tore some Asian style fabric into strips. Once I sewed them on, I felt like it still needed something, so I added a splash of color with a magenta strip of fabric. I found some old/vintage buttons which I sewed on and then used waxed linen thread to string some beads. This was a really fun project for not a lot of time.
If you want to create Fiber Postcards (PCs), Artist Trading Cards (ATCs), Artist Trading Pins (ATPs), Artist Trading Dolls (ATDs), fiber books/pages, ornaments, Plus Size Inchies (PSIs) or just chat with like minded individuals, check out the site. It is a very friendly group led by talented fiber artist Normajean Brevik who is a writer, designer and teacher of fiber arts.
