I joined in the latest trend... making fabric postcards. I wanted to send something "nice" for my sister's birthday and Mother's Day, but didn't have a chance to shop and there isn't really anything especially nice or personal at Hallmark anyway, right.
So I made these. It was really fun. Gerrie gave me some good tips. She just sews cardstock on the back so they are easy to address and write a message. I figured if I was going to do this "fabric" thing, that the novelty of it is that it's FABRIC, so I did fabric on the back. But, if I did it again, I'd eschew the purist in me and use cardstock.
I had them hand cancelled. The post man said they were lovely and didn't bat an eye about posting them.
And they all arrived fine.
Birthday post card for my sister
Mother's Day postcard (for my delightful mother-in-law)
Another Mother's Day postcard (for my delightful mother)
Mom hand dyed all this delicious fabric from a kit she bought at the World Quilt Expo from ProChem. She dyed 30 fat eights and shared several with me. I'm very lucky. She even shared some of the fat eigths that were already fused! Instant art.
