Fabric Note Cards

3 Jul

Yvette sent me this image of a thank you note that she received. It’s a note card on one side and fabric on the other! Yvette said to do it… so I did…

I pulled out the endless amounts of fabric scraps, note cards, 3M spray mount, colored thread, scissors and my bone folder. The first step is to iron the fabric flat!

Spray one side of note card with 3M Spray mount and press smooth with bone folder or ruler. Trim fabric to size of the note card.

This is the fun part… choose your thread. I chose to use a different thread color for the bobbin so that once side will be one color and the back side would be different. Next, choose your stitch! My machine has several options so I changed it up a bit on some.

This is the front….

This is the back…

These are some other examples with different stitches used. I think they came out cute! I was als thinking that this could be a great way to catalog my fabric so I know what I have and I can write on the back how much I have of it. When you go shopping for projects you can know what you have at home and also match it with other fabric you buy too! For now,  I can get to writing some thank you notes to some very special people!
