My Very First Mail Art

This was sent to Lillie in Malaysia for a Coffee & Tea Mail Art Exchange.

Design: Tea Crazy*
Designer: Lizzie Kate
Fabric: 32ct Antique White Monoco Evenweave
Fibers: DMC Linen Floss
Time: It took about 2 weeks to plan the
envelope design, and 2 weeks of stitching.


*Design and colors were altered according to my whim, LOL.

Your mail art is lovely. Did you mail it as is or put it inside something? I've never done any mail art yet. As you can see, I'm very behind in my blog reading.
