Christmas Postcard # 1...
I have just finished my first fabric postcard for a little swap I am in , and it was great fun!.
At first I had no idea what I was doing or what to put on it.
I have some lovely vintage style Santa prints, which I think is just perfect.
The prints fit in just beautifully with the Victorian look that I love.
I added a little glitter to Santa's gown for a bit of sparkle, and worked in a cream poinsettia at the top right corner.
One thing I did learn though, is to not put too thick a braid out to the sides, as it's hard to get a nice neat machine finish over the braid at the edge...
