I worked on some postcards and I am so not finished!
Posted by pegsplace on August 3, 2013
I participated in a postcard shop with Sheila. I already showed her card, but I sent the left one out to her and the one on the right went to my friend Jen. The one on the right was my model…learning as I go. The middle of the right one is chenille. Next time I have to cut the chenille narrower.
I had already exchanged postcards, in 2007, so here is my collection so far:
Aren’t they pretty?
For you Jen, here are a few things that I learned along the way….so far:
Here is the interfacing….quite thick and sturdy and fusible on both sides. I have no idea what the name is but it is sold by the meter and is under $5 a meter.
I got a plexiglass made: 4 X6 for postcards, easy to trim down the cards before doing the side stitching.
Here is the backing….for my model one, I simply ironed material onto freezer paper and put the paper through the printer; after finding that post card template. For Sheila’s, the top one, I had a backing already made so I used that one. I like the idea of the freezer paper one.
So? What do you think? I love them and now I am making some more, but can’t show because they are secret. I will post when receivers get theirs.
