I was visiting Fiona's blog a few days ago and she talked about the fact she had joined in a little SAL to make an apron from a shirt , well I have been wanting to do this for ages so I proceeded on over to this blog where I asked Jane if I could join in the fun . My first step was to find a shirt I was willing to cut up and I had a few of Bill's shirts I could choose but I thought I would check at Frenchies , a local thrift type store and I found this really cute little ladies shirt .
I am in the process of assigning names for the postcard exchange , if you haven't received a partner yet don't panic I will get to you but you can always start stitching while you wait ;-). Is there anyone else interested in taking part , for those who have never made a postcard before don't be shy , they are not difficult and I have a tutorial here on my blog that can possibly help with the construction . The finished size is 4"x6" and they are made entirely of fabric with a stiffener such as timetex between the layers to make them stiff enough to mail . Now it is up to you whether you mail them as is or in an envelope , if you have any embellishments that might get caught in the machines I would strongly suggest using an envelope . So here is the link for the tutorial , lets have a few more particpants .
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day .
