Christmas Fabric Postcard

DSCN5137 webSandi over at Quilt Cabana hosted a Christmas Fabric Postcard Swap (try saying that fast) that I participated in.

I collect snowmen so the card fits perfectly on my entry table.

DSCN5108 web_wmI swapped the snowman card above for this one:057 web_wm

I just love how the fabrics you choose can make the photo element of the design fit perfectly. I wanted to put names on the stockings but there really wasn’t room. I also think I should have used a thicker thread with I “wrote” “Merry Christmas.”

I didn’t mail my postcard directly as the wreath was crocheted and I didn’t want it falling off the postcard as it traveled through the postal system.

While this was not the first fabric postcard I have made, this is my first postcard swap.

Hopefully this is a tradition that will continue each year (hint hint Sandi :)).

Thanks Sandi,

Enjoy the Journey, Jackie

    Looks like you had a lot of fun making and receiving your postcards. Would you do this again?

    • Jackie

      I did have fun. I have made fabric postcards in the past and it was great to have a place to send one and yes, I would do it again.

    Adorable! 3D wreath and writing quilting – especially cool!

      Thank you. The wreath started out flat with fabric and looked blah. I am glad inspiration hit. 🙂
