    Your beaded snowflake is my favorite. What a wonderful blog, and thanks for the PDF file too!

    I am new to blogging and just started a site on fabric postcards, in case you are interested.


  • Alice Pullen:

    How do I get on a list to exchange my quilted postcards around the world and in the USA?

  • Theresa Fjeldheim:

    This is –BY FAR — the BEST directions for making postcards that I’ve read. You covered each section in very clear detail. Now I can actually use the pattern that I bought more than a year ago. Thank You!

  • Wendy Wilson:

    This is a neat way to use up small pieces of special fabrics if there isn’t enough to make a bowl, box, or quilt block! I plan on doing some of these. I found some peltex I’d bought for something (can’t remember what!), so maybe I can just make some to have ready when I need one!
    Where do you get the clear envelopes, though?

  • Chris:

    OOOOOO, I love these. They look kind of tricky. I’ll try one and let you know how I do. THANKS !
