First attempt at fabric cards

I made my first fabric cards this week and I'm pretty darn happy with the results! This was a collaborative project; Sophie chose all the fabrics and I sewed them to the blank cards. I was inspired by seeing some fabric cards on Dana's blog. Her tutorial is here. It's based on a project from the book Denyse Schmidt Quilts, which I was given for Christmas (thanks, Jan & Ken!), so I pulled out my copy for reference while putting together the cards.

The rainbow card went to my Grandma and the Earth Day card is waiting for a lucky recipient.

In other sewing news, I received this great fat quarter (1/4 yard of fabric) from Georgi in Whitehorse yesterday! We were partners in the Sew, Mama, Sew! FQ Swap that is part of their Quilt Month celebrations. As soon as I opened up the handmade envelope, Sophie said, "You should make some more fabric cards with that!" Good idea, Sophie!


  1. Those are SO cool! Wow, what a great idea for a birthday card...hint, hint...;)

  2. I LOVE the cards. I especially think the inside cover looks pretty cool. How fabulous!
