This is my first attempt at making a fabric postcard, a project inspired by the very talented, mix media artist I interviewed today for an upcoming craft column. I plan to reveal her identity and post instructions to make a postcard of your own soon, so check back here often.
I try out all the projects I write about because I want to be able to write directions with some measure of authority and make sure I can field reader questions. So today, I watched the artist make a postcard, then I went home and tried to make one myself without any assistance. I think my second fabric postcard will be better, but I’m pleased with the result. It would be cool to get one of these in the mail. I’ve always loved receiving letters and postcards from interesting people and would especially love fabric mail. I should join a swap.
The card was created this evening when I should have been washing dishes. Ah well, the dishes will still be there in the morning. Perhaps the fact that I used a print of a woman doing yoga is a sign that I need to get back to class. I miss that zen.
