Detailed instructions on how to make fabric postcards are provided by Arbee Designs in PDF format which means you need Adobe Acrobat reader installed to access it.
On the subject of fabric postcards take a look at what Australia Post did to Caitlin’s fabric post card. Technically they ‘opened it’ for inspection but what idiots!
And thank you Sharon for the mention! You run a great blog; there’s always something of interest.
Sue thanks for the links
In the U.S., self-stick stamps, pressed on firmly, work very well. There’s lots of cards to look at, and instructions and tips, at http://www.art2mail.com/ , the group that started the current postcard craze, and also at our sister group, http://postmarkdart.com/ Enjoy!
Donna- probably glue – I don’t use glue on products so i would try double sided interfacing to bond it – anyone else have suggestions?
Got the instructions just fine, but still leaves one question. How do you attach the stamp? Wouldn’t it just fall off the fabric?
Thanks Valquiria- you have certainly been very productive – I am pleased you find the site useful
Thanks for the instruction link it covers just what I wanted to know.
Sharon,I’m from Brazil and don’t speak english very well,but I made an impression about your work.Here in Brazil we embroider using several techniques like cross stich, Brazilian embroidery (we call this work rococó), punch neele, satin, ribbon, at last,everything that our creativity asks for.But I’m magic about your work.I have a doubt: which the difference between Florentine, straigth stitch and Bargello?
I embroider washbasin towel with fringes in macramê and beading.You are my inspiration.Thank you so much for all information that I find all day in your blog.Please,visit my blog and take a look in my work.And,I have a commentary to make about your post:here in Brazil we don’t have terrorism, we are a peaceful people,even so we have our problems as all country.I believe that these cares are necessary to guarantee the security, even so has been of a care lack in that it says respect to the art contained in that part( sorry, I had to use a tranlator).For me it was as if they had destroyed a work of art.
In Brazil we call this “paranóia”.
(your Brazilian fan)
