Need help with felt ATC!!!
Hello all ! I decided to post this little elephant ATC that I designed myself...solely for the purpose of gaining any advice you might have. I loosely attached all of the parts of the elephant with french knots (my new found love). I have the elephant just laying on top of the white felt below it that is ATC size (2.5 x 3.5 inches). Now...I need to know if there is a way (hopefully not involving glue, but sewing)...or iron on somethingorother...that I can attach the ellie to the background...and still be able to handsew details on the elephant??? So, I don't want it to become stiff or impenetrable. I have also toyed with the idea of putting a felt back on the elephant and attaching it to the white felt ATC with Velcro so it could be removed to play with. The ATC is for a very young girl.
I just love french knots!!! Interestingly, I told my Mom how much I love them, and she told me I "got that" from my maternal grandmother who used to french knot everything...pillowcases, etc. I loved learning that. She was my country grandma...and those of you who have been following my blog long enough, know that I am a country girl at heart!!!
Today I am thankful for all of the good influences from my Grandma Dora!!!
