Fabric Postcards

Fabric postcards have been on my radar for awhile. I don't know if I first saw them on Pinterest or somewhere else, but through Pinterest I have gathered tons of ideas and inspiration. So I just decided to sit down and see what I could come up with. It was fun and surprisingly satisfying to finish something so quickly.

 These postcards were done in about an hour. All I have left to do on them is zigzag around the outer edges. I figured I would get all the cards made first and zigzag later.

Years ago I began saving popcorn wrappers in this basket. I'd read that they are the exact size of a postcard, and therefore would be perfect for protecting fabric postcards.

I had 16 wrappers in the basket, so I am planning to make 16 cards. Duh!

 It's a bit hard to see, but this one is in the wrapper. And I have zigzagged it, too.

You can see that I ironed on stars to a few. Those were left over from a long-forgotten project and were hanging out in the bin with all the Christmas fabric. Figured I ought to go ahead and put them to use.

I will try selling these at the Holiday Bazaar on Nov. 7.

Don't forget to check out the Bloggers' Quilt Festival sponsored by Amy Ellis at Amy's Creative Side. I've entered a quilt in the hand quilting division. Hope you'll consider giving it a vote!
Happy Quilting, Friends!
