Fabric Postcard



I am completely addicted to working with fabrics,I cant seem to get off the merry go round lol,one thing leads to another !Do i want to get off ? Noooooooo I,m just loving it,I never thought in a million years i would be doing this sort of art,but always admired people who do.

I was inspired to create this postcard from some I saw in Craft Stamper,I,m not sure if they were fabric,dont think so,it just took me back to the days when I loved to collect the Victorian silk postcards,so heres my little effort !

The bird is my new stamp i bought in Blade Runner when we had our meetup,it was actually in a heart design,I cut it out for this,then sewed onto the fabric pieces,then glazed over to protect it.
I stamped the word Hope onto it,hoping my postcard gets to its destination in one piece lol,saying that i would proberly put in an envelope anyway !

Great postcard, Pattie. As soon as I saw it I thought of Craft Stamper but you've made it your own.

I have been mainly making cards lately, but you are inspiring me to do something different, which I haven't in a while now. I must delve into my sewing bits that I thought "might come in handy someday" and see what I have. This is lovely, as usual. xx

My heart was in my mouthj for a second then - I thought you were going to entrust it to the Royal Mail as is!!! Then I read the rest of the sentence. I have sent 'flat' collaged cards through the post but don't think I would trust something like this. It is awesome by the way, don't stop working with the fabric, you do beautiful work. It keeps calling to me, one day....
