Maybe just a little bubble wrap. They are really sweet!

Thank you SusieQOH. I didn't even think of bubble wrap but you are right a tiny spot of bubble wrap over the cross would keep it from getting caught up in the post office equipment.
Gonna give it a try in the get well card I need to send.

I make mine with scrap 4- 2 1/2" squares into a 4 patch and on the back side, I had a prayer I wrote printed out in yardage by Spoonflower. I cut out the prayers and sew a small border (scrap strings) around the prayer, trim it to 4 1/2". I use white felt as the batting. I buy wooden crosses from Oriental Trading, slip one inside, stitch around the whole edge once, then 1/4" from edge. I put the pocket quilts in a clear plastic envelope to keep them clean. If I mail them, I put them in a card. I keep some, in the envelope, in my purse to give away. I put two in the pocket of the tote bag I put comfort quilts in when I give them away.
