Post cards

for Jane

for Miriam
I am in a birthday Postcard swap with BQLPC yahoo group, so today have been making some for the April birthdays.

I use machine embroidery for the design, then stick this to the front of very sticky Rufflette pelmet vilene, add a plain piece of fabric to the back of the vilene, machine around the edge and then use a Sharpie pen to write the message and address on. A normal 2nd or 1st class stamp is usually enough postage for those going to this country.
