|this year's Christmas postcard|
Meanwhile, here is an example of the several dozen cloth postcards I have made, all slightly different. Scraps of brightly printed fabric were fused onto muslin, then backed with batting, more muslin, and stitched. Finally, they were faced with heavy paper, and secured with stitching all around the outer edge.
What I love about these fabric postcards, and I've been making them for more than ten years now, is that they go through the mail without an envelope, just a stamp. I'm sure they bring a smile along the route, and I know they are valued in their new homes.
I have also matted and framed a dozen of these "patchwork hearts" for sale at the local gallery.
May your holidays too be filled with all the warmth of the season. And thank you for your interest and support throughout the year.
