Original textile ACEOs

I have been doing my homework on ACEOs lately. An ACEO is a piece of artwork in any medium but it must be 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches in size. It can be a print or an original.
People but and collect them for various reasons. Some people make a hobby out of collecting them and may keep them stored in collectors books. Some people frame them in special ACEO  frames and either display them in groups or use them to fill a small space on the wall. I have seen them framed with several in a frame and think that looks nice. Anyway they are inexpensive and brilliant for anyone who wants affordable, original art.
I usually work on a much bigger scale and the first one I tried to make took ages. I decided to list it in my Folksy shop and then went outside to feed my pigs and sheep. When I got back it had sold!
For the last 2 days I have been experimenting and playing with different methods of producing these little pictures. I won't make my first million by selling them but they are fun and pleasurable to make so I have decided to give it a go. These are the ones I have produced whilst playing and I will be listing them on etsy and folksy.


  1. Really lovely atc's sometimes it is just good to try a change in them! Cheers Claire x

    1. Thank you Claire. They are proving to be popular but I must admit doing the stitching is very fiddly and I mustn't blink or it all goes wrong.

  2. I don't see how you make those lovely felts, with so much detail, so small.
