Scrap Postcard Swap

Here are my scrap postcards for a swap that I joined at Cloth Paper Studio Yahoo group

cps-postcard-swap

I picked through my fabric scrap box and found these 3 nine patch blocks and a few strips leftover from a previous project.  I added the maroon silk ribbon and turquoize french knots just to mix it up a bit.  The backing is the black and white polka dot.  To keep these stiff like a postcard, I used Pellon Peltex as the middle layer.  These measure 4in. x 6 in.

Another great way to use up your scraps!  Enjoy!

    These look great. Have you ever actually mailed a fabric postcard? Would you recommend sealing the top before mailing?

    Hi Linda! Yes, I have mailed over hundred fabric postcards through the US Mail system. I don’t seal them. I make sure that the edges have been sewn so it does not come apart. All of the ones I sent made it through. You do have to add extra postage though – usually 2 ounces covers it. Let me know if you have any other questions.
