Default Postcard for my Mom

I threw this together from a free PP pattern I printed off the internet. The picture didn't come out all that great and the rose looks better in person. I should have used alot of different shades of pink to make the rose better. My sons picked the fabric and wrote the message on the back. First one I have done and I finished it in about an hour. Got all the mistakes out of the way on this one...

Oh, and my mom can use it as a coaster or tiny mug rug. Postage was close to $2.00 as I had to send it as a "parcel." The Post Office workers said they had never seen one before. Hope it arrives safely.

Re: Rose Postcard

I have read that fabric postcards like yours should be enclosed in envelopes for mailing to ensure their safe arrival at destination!

Oops. I have a book on making quilted postcards and they have stamps placed directly on the postcard. I will know better for next time. Thanks for the advice.

That is neat. I have heard of them before, but never made one.
