First Fabric Postcard



This is my first attempt at a fabric postcard. I cut the flowers from T!m's alterations die in yellow and orange felt. I stamped them with a script image using black stazon. I attached the smaller piece to the larger one by sewing the centres. I cut some wool and laid it on the fabric, placing the flowers over the top. I then stitched the flowers to the purple fabric taking in some of the wool. I put a piece of black tulle across the bottom and again trapped the wool. I stitched a few times over it. I attached a piece of white card to the back which was postcard size (6" x 4") stitched right around the edge and cut off the excess materials. Not quite what I had in mind when I started, but then it never is!!!!!
