Fabric Postcard



Fabric Postcard

I am quite enjoying this idea,as its a small project to work on ,similar to the quilt squares,but more useful to give as a prezzy or send to a friend,this ones not good enough to send through the post as it has embellishments on,would have to go into an envelope,I have to keep that in mind when i create my future ones,but the fabric would still get soiled through the post,I have seen in the US that they do sell plastic envies to send these,have to do a search to see if we do in the UK.

This is felt backed,with my own dye'd fabrics using cotton and Organza,the bird is a dye'd babywipe onto felt,stamped into with Tim Holtz Distress ink pad.Left hand corner is my attempt at a birds nest lol.
I have fixed it onto a normal postcard for backing.

This is fabulous Pattie, it almost looks like soft blue leather suede. I can't believe there's a baby wipe in there!! It's brilliant!!

Pattie. love all of your fabric postcards. I am still trying to figure out how to finish mine off since I am feeling a bit challenged due to not sewing for so many years. Have to "relearn" how to use my machine with all the fancy stitches.
