ONE INCH CHARMS













First it was fabric postcards and now it is 1 inch charms...have joined 3 charm swaps. These charms are for me as they turned out that after sealing edges in Utee I was unable to insert eyelets. And even if I inserted an eyelet before sealing the edges ...it was very difficult to insert a jump ring due to the added thickness of the edge. At first was disappointed because I wouldn't be able to use them in any of my swaps...but then in looking at them...I knew I would be able to use them on art quilts are even on postcards...so all was not lost. In fact I think I liked them better without eyelets.

I love them all, eyelets or no eyelets. You've done a fabulous job on these. These charms are proving to be very addictive.

These are beautiful. Please don't let them go to waste because they don't fit the swap criteria - they would be gorgeous on postcards or ATCs or greetings cards :)

Just what I need... another quilt swapping addiction.

I think these would be a great addition to your friends postcards...maybe with a pin so that she could wear it to her dr's appointments and know that you really are there with her in spirit cheering her on!!!!

I love these charms, they are just fabulous. I love what the UTEE edging does, although it's a shame you can't add eyelets. Lots of other ways to use them, though. :)
