I love to make fabric postcards. They are great for any occasion, but especially for Christmas I try to select a large pattern with big impact for the design. Here is how I made my Christmas Fabric Postcards!
I started this year’s card with a black and white copy from Clip Art.
Using this as a pattern, I cut out the large applique and used a satin stitch to sew it to the background.

I then added a decorative stitch as the “rays”.
The top of the card and the backing (I usually use a white fabric or muslin) are fused to the interfacing. After trimming all the edges, I use a satin stitch or decorative stitch around the edges and it’s ready to go!
On the back of the card, just draw a line down the middle, write the address on the right, and your message on the left. Attach a stamp and send through the mail.
The thing I really love is that these Christmas fabric postcards can go through the mail as is. No envelope needed. My friends love getting something this unusual through the mail. If, however, I decide to embellish with beads or sequins (anything that could get caught in the Post Office’s machinery), I’ll put the card in an envelope.
