THESE ATCs ARE SO MUCH FUN!!!! I even submitted my sewing machine to a little torture by forcing it to stitch the zipper onto the screening. The needle threader was some corroded piece of junk I found on the sidewalk once (or in a junk box, dunno, but I knew someday I would have a use for it!), but the little loop was missing. Can't have a needle threader without a threader thingy, so I took a piece of wire from a scrap of screen (like pulling thread from a frayed piece of cloth) and fashioned a threading loop myself-- and stuck it back into its holder. I like the bits of green paint stuck to the wire. I rubbed some paint onto the handle of the threader to give it a green patina (no, not original- but looks authentic, doesn't it?) since I had the color naturally occurring elsewhere.
I have one more of these "reduced paper" ATCs to share! Tune in tomorrow.
