I have had a few questions and interest about how I make my postcards.
Hope this helps a little.
I start by cutting a piece of bag wadding 6.5” * 4.5” (this will be trimmed later) to 6*4”
I design my picture and assemble by doing QAYG method.
For the ship one I used a solid background. But had fun making the waves.
I made thin bias strips for the waves.
I cut an inch strip of fabric, sew wrong sides together, insert the bias bar, twist so the seam is underneath, iron with a hot iron, trim the excess seam allowance back so it is hidden under the bias and it’s now ready to place on your card or sew wherever you want…..
Working out where to place the waves.
I had fun placing the waves before I did a stay stitch around the edges. I haven’t stitched them down anywhere else.
