Making Fabric Postcards w. Serger, Iron ons, Glue felted wool
Continuation of Handmade Postcards.....this one with fabric. I really started this project to see how serged edges would look. I was really pleased with the finished look. A few months ago I had printed the postcard stamp box and lines on fabric so used that today with a backing of felted wool. True the lines are a little crooked but I cant wait to make more! The lines got a little runny due my ingenius idea to spray with sizing on the other side. Well it went through. I won't do that again. I serged the two pieces together.
Then I grabbed my Aleenes Tacky Glue and added the tag, phrases and lace on the front. I forgot to mention on the address side I ironed on the picture of the boy and girl holding flowers. I purchased this from ebay seller Lakebears. You can often write a message with a micron pen on this postcard. This one needs to be firmer so I would mail it in an envelope. You can put a layer of cardstock between the 2 pieces of fabric.
I have been using my serger a lot more than I use to.
