Fabric Postcards.....

My online doll club is having a challenge to make Fabric Postcards with the theme "Lazy Summer Afternoon".

We can make as many cards as we want as long as they are made from fabric...the card can be stitched, painted, have small amounts of paper, photographs and embellishments but predominantly it must be made from fabric.

These cards are not going to be exchanged as it is a "show and tell" challenge only.

I have only made one fabric postcard before for a swap and at the time I didn't know that there are "rules". So this time I thought I'd do a bit of research.

Here are some videos I found on YouTube........there are lots more:)

I found a couple of Flickr groups for inspiration too.....

Take care:)


  1. What a neat idea! these turned out wonderfully!

  2. Thanks for the links. I have only made one before but have wanted to make more. There are some books in the library that I have borrowed for inspiration.

  3. I know the card Dolores made, it was fantastic... So good I wanted to be able to add it to my fridge door... so I could look at it... all the time :-) Ah, I'm not great on card making, but will watch from afar and see all the great creations :-) XXX

  4. Thanks for the links. I'll become a member of your doll club. I haven't made postcards for ages!They are good fun to do!

  5. These look like a really lovely idea. As soon as I get out from under all these dolls and their demands, I'll have to look at making some to send back home to the UK.

  6. I'm glad I didn't know there were lots of rules when I organised my swap!!


If you leave a comment and I don't respond it's because I didn't get an email notice. I don't know why this happens and I apologize in advance as I love to hear from you:)
