    Such a sweet idea..I bet as she gets them they would be great sewn together to make a wall hanging and eventually a quilt.

    I hope to find a neat box for her parents to save them in but did send a plastic plate holder so she can "display" one each wk...son says she moves it from here to there all over the house!

    those are so sweet!!! i think i'm going to have to try my hand at a few of these. my daughter loves material so maybe i can use some of "her stash" to make something for her to carry around! thanks for the wonderful ideas and photos.

    They are so cute.
    Do you send them as an actual postcard or do you put them in something else?

    I put these into envelopes so they will not get soiled and also I have been adding a lollipop and some stickers but you can mail as a postcard but need to have them hand cancelled and they require a regular stamp not a postcard stamp.

    Well, I could give some info but I did find so much information and tutorials on line..I just typed in how to make fabric postcards in search and found soooooooo much ifno...seems everyone does them a little differently but basically the same...they are to be 4 x 6" for one thing

    I did about 36 of them in a matter of less than an hour I think it was...super fast once you get the supplies out and get started

    I thought I was replying to Nikki about the matchbook needlecases...lol I did not do all those postcards in that short a time...
    I tried posting pics of the needle cases and it didn't go thru...will try again..
    The postcards seem to average an hour each to make ...some less some more time

    What a great idea. My grandaughter is in Georgia, dad is stationed at Fort Benning. Elizabeth was 2 in March, I sure miss her....and our daughter and son-in-law too.
    Is it okay to copy your idea?

    What a wonderful idea. Lovely keepsake for her.

    I was thinking how awful it would be if someone in the PO would see them and pocket them when I read you put them in an envelope. Good idea.
