Janet McElroy shares the secrets of fabric postcards. Reproduced with kind permission from Jan. See the original lesson and read more fascinating tips and stories at Jan's Musing.
I have been asked several times 'How do you make your cards?' So, to answer everyone who has, I have taken photographs as I made one, and this is the result. I do hope you are able to follow it successfully, that it is clear enough for you, and that you will ask me if anything is not easily understood.
You will obviously have a different machine to me so will have to adjust yours as near to what I did - if you wish to - to get the same results.
If this has made your postcard making easier do let me know. I know there are lots of lessons on the web for the postcards, mine is just literally MY WAY of making these little works of art.
Here we are at the end of the basic assembly of your card. Now it is time to do those edges. See Jan's Postcard Tutorial Part Two for information on the way I do mine. I hope you have enjoyed this lesson so far.
