Day 4: Fabric postcards

We're glad you stopped by! 
(Also, answers to the trivia questions for Days 1 & 2, plus the names of winners, are listed at the bottom of this post.)

Here's another perfect gift idea: personalized notecards. Or use holiday fabric and make them fabric gift tags instead!
This idea came from Mr. B's Preview Pack Club Member Jeanette Sillonis, who uses the 5" squares from being part of the club to create unique postcards. Simple stitch up a mini quilt, adding batting and quilt it as desired, and then fuse with a layer of interfacing (for stiffness) it to a solid piece of muslin (to be the back side where you write). Use a nice thick zig zag stitch around the edges, and your postcard is complete!

Here are some additional postcards Jeanette has made:

For Christmas tags, try fussy-cutting designs from holiday prints:
