*unique post cards

So, let me be honest with you, I have been wanting to get into my sewing room so I could start to work on a quilt but I life just has not allowed it.  Tonight after spending some time on Pinterest for some inspiration I got busy creating some Valentine cards for the some of the loved ones in my life.

I have been making these for several years now and  I do enjoy making them. I don't really begin with a finished product in mind - I sort of create it as I go.  What?! Doesn't everyone sew like that?

If you are interested in creating some fabric post cards to give at any time of the year whether it be Valentines, Christmas, Easter, Birthday, or JUST BECAUSE you will need a good working sewing machine. I love using my Janome 6600 because of the nice decorative stitches that is has.  You will also need an iron as well as the list things listed above.

This one is my favorite thus far, it was simple and quick to sew and I LOVE the way it turned out.  The stitching looks like lace around the edges of the fabric which plays well with the pink lace on the background!

 This fabric post card made for Valentines, says: Friends are the flowers in the garden of life, thanks for being my friend. ~Lynette

I made this one a week or so ago.. not a fan. I love the fabrics.. but just not really jazzed about the way this one turned out. I only have one person I could send this one to, because it says BEST friend and to be honest I just don't think it is good enough to send to my BEST friend.  So.. I will likely just give it to the our sweet postal clerk so she can give it to her daughter to use as some sort of inspiration.  When I went in to day to make sure that cloth cards could still be mailed through the postal system, she was oohing and aaahing over it.  She even asked if she could make a copy of it!
