Handmade Mondays – Quilted Postcards


Fabric Postcards are still popular and I do run into people who don’t know that you can mail a 4inch by 6 inch piece of fabric through the Postal Service with just a postcard stamp. They’re such a fun and creative medium – open to any technique or idea and quick to make. Plus, you can send it as a nice surprise to a friend.

Learn how to make your own. I like this idea of using a cardboard template to “audition” the fabrics. Here’s a cute paper-pieced Christmas Joy fabric postcard pattern and an applique flowers and butterfly pattern.  Finally, here’s a cute bargain book that I recommend
