Christmas Postcards

Now that all of my Christmas postcards for Sheila's swap have arrived I can show you the ones that I sent.

I made these by bondawebbing foil sweet papers onto purple velvet ( the cheap stretchy sort) and then on the first one adding a few bits of iron on coloured foil. I covered the cards with a sheer fabric and then did some free motion stitching all over. I enjoyed making these - and especially eating the chocolate to get the foils!
Hope you are having a good week


  1. so clever Lin, and what a great result... and chocs too!!! hahah

  10. Great results with your foil wrappers and free motion sewing! I've got a couple of co-workers saving wrappers for me now and recently received a nice stash of them. Looking fwd to being creative with them in 2015 :)
