Yesterday Colette asked if it was hard to make a postcard. I thought that I've never made a tutorial before (which a lot of blogs do) so here goes. I would appreciate having some feedback just to see if it works.
Here is my method
I use a non stick cake liner, or you could use baking parchment to protect your ironing board cover and iron to fuse the pieces together, so with the front of your postcard face down place fusible web glue side down onto the back of the postcard front.
Then to the sewing machine for a zigzag edging. I don't use satin stitch as its too dense, but keep to a close-ish zigzag and when turning the corners reverse stitch before continuing along the length.
The back can be written on in ordinary gel pen and on this card I've just used plain calico, but I often use any light coloured fabric that I happen to have on which the address can easily be seen.
Here's the finished front
That's another postcard done and I hope you enjoyed the tutorial.
