A few months ago I took a class with Tonye Belinda Phillips on fabric postcards. It was very fun and very inspiring. As usual I’d put aside my half-done postcards because other projects had worked their way to the forefront. But because 2011 is my “year to finish projects” last night I jumped back in and worked on them.
Using Fast-to-Fuse, a heavy two-sided fusible material, they are so easy to do. And with my new (cheap from Costco!) Brother sewing machine, I have lots of decorative stitches I can use.
I’ve mailed several of these already, and they come through the mail just fine. The postmaster at my local post office tried to talk me into having them hand-stamped, but I said no because I wanted the stamp and the look of the cancellation on the stamp. Besides, I wanted to see how they would actually fair in the mail. And the one I saw did just fine! (And I tried several times to crop these photos but for some unknown reason wordpress just didn’t want to save the cropped images…???)
