I finally got a couple items completed the other day. I haven't made any ACEO's lately and decided to do just that. ACEO stands for Art Cards Editions and Originals, so far mine are all originals. They have to measure 2.5x3.5, mine are made with fabric, just like I make my quilted fabric postcards.
These are made with the novelty cat fabric I found at this little quilt shop that has been in this small town on the Ohio River for years. There is an older couple who owns the store and he has a couple of long arm machines in his backroom. He showed them to me one day, I hope to take one of my bigger wallhanging quilts to him to have him quilt it for me.

The first card is titled POUNCE and the next one is TIPTOE THROUGH THE TULIPS

Here is my next critter kit I made today. She is made from a sweater with vintage jewelry, lace trims, and a big white flower pin embellishments.

My First Critter Kit, DARLA the DANCER

A few weeks ago I made a cute little stuffed critter, Mabel. Remember how I decided that the sewing together wasn't my thing, but the designing was so much fun I wanted to do more. Well today I am doing just that! I present to you DARLA THE DANCER

Several weeks ago I was looking through ebay thinking of getting back into selling there, which by the way I haven't done yet. Still on my mind though. Anyway, as I was looking through the different sections that I would most likely sell in I found a couple of listings that were of appliques that I wanted. So I bought them, and believe it or not the seller lived just a few miles down the road in the same county I live in! Small world isn't it?
I finally made a couple of quilted postcards with the appliques, both are now listed in my etsy store.
So the first picture is of the appliques and the next 2 are of the postcards I made.

I was making another cookbook cover, this time a wrap. After spending what I considered too long on it I realized it could even be a wallhanging, so my new 2 in 1 quilt. I like how it turned out and hopefully someone else will too.

As a child I always loved Woody Woodpecker, So when I saw a pair of pj's that had Woody on them I just couldn't pass them up. Usually I stay clear of characters that are so well known, but Woody has always held a special place in my heart:)

I have been up later than usual for the last few nights, was with friends for 2 of the nights, and read a good book the other and had to finish it. So I decided to make a postcard with Woody looking like he had a late night, with a cute little alien guy pointing a ray gun at him. If you look close enough Woody's slippers seem to see the alien, but of course Woody is oblivious to it all :). This postcard is one of my favorites.

Well a few post back I showed you Mabel, while I was creating her. I had such fun, then I had to put her together. Not my expertise, as all can see by the pictures LOL. It really doesn't matter, I have decided she will be the last one I actually finish, might make some kits cause it is such fun to create the little ones, but I will leave the assembly for someone else. As you can see by the before and after photos it is for the best.
Harmony, I will be putting her in the mail for you soon, maybe even today.:)

About Me

Name: Attack of the Vintage
About Me: Hi! I am a fiber artist tryig to work on my art everyday of 2007. With doing this I hope my art will evolve and I will learn many new techniques this coming year. My goal is to be able to make my living doing my fiber arts. I also make my own earrings when I have a need of a new pair. I am an avid brick collector and belong to International Brick Collectors Association. I try to attend at least one brick swap a year to share my bricks and to collect new ones from all over the country. I am currently working on a hugh brick walk and patio. Gardening is another love of mine, my yard is getting rather funky in my yard decorating. I go for the unusaul and people come out my way to see what I have added each year. Last summer was green beer bottles for the flower bed edging and bowling ball towers. I have no idea what I will be adding this coming summer.
