    Fabric Postcards for Christmas

    Kind of late to be posting these but might give ideas what to work on for Christmas 2013.

    I enjoy making fabric postcards, sometimes I add non-fabric items like words torn from old greeting cards.Name:  for me.jpg

    Sorry the pix are so large, don't know how to make them smaller... just several of the over 20 that I made for family and friends.

    They are great. Something we could do during the year in between big projects. Thank you for sharing.

    You're very creative! What a nice way to remember friends and family. My pictures come out large, too...I take them on an iPad. But it's okay, that way we can see the details! Nice, nice, nice!

    No need to apoligize for the large size photos. I love seeing all the details clearly. Many posts are too small to see any detail.

    Thank you all for the compliments. I've been trading with people online for a few years now, having made and received over 500 FPCs. Usually I am so busy creating for swaps that my family and friends do not get them from me. Last year I decided I needed to make them a priority at least for Christmas. I do try to send some to my grands for their b'days or different holidays too .

    Here is a quick one that I sent for my youngest granddaughter who was born 12-11-12 ... The images are a technique called Tape Transfer, they were cut from a catalog.

    Your fabric postcards are gorgeous. You don't mail them out too, do you?

    Oh yes, all of them get mailed ... If they are nice and flat they are mailed 'naked' first class mail. If they have embellishments like yarns, buttons, anything that won't allow them to go thru the PO machinery they are mailed in a see-thru cello envelope, to be hand cancelled ... first class plus .20 ... Some people think that is expensive to send a fabric postcard, but my feeling is: I get joy from making these, it is my creative hobby (cheaper than playing golf, skiing etc) and if I mailed traditional greeting cards purchased at Hallmark, now THAT would be expensive, LOL...the card not the postage.
