    Cards from fabric scraps

    There is a storm on the way (very late in the season for the first one) so I am getting ready to play with batik scraps. I'm making cards for fun.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Beautiful. Would love to be the recipient of one. I have a friend who makes her own Christmas cards and every year that is the only one I save......what treasures they are. Thanks for sharing.

    How beautiful! How do you cut the shapes? ScanNCut? And then, how do you affix the shapes to the cards?

    I guess I need a tutorial!
    I would love to be able to make those!

    I do it the exact same way I do preparation for machine quilting. Find cute silhouettes or easy pictures that I can reduce to the right size. Trace on to fusible (I use WonderUnder since it is cheaper) then iron to the back of the fabric and cut out with my scissors (not sure the auto cutters can do this tiny). Finally I assemble and fuse to the card stock.

    beautiful design. I love it.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
