There is a fun FB group, called Postcard Fabric Art on Facebook that I have been following for awhile. They have challenges every month. This month is interesting as it combines fabric, paint and stitching. I am going to try my hand at this!
I found an image in this book that I want to use for my postcard.
This is the chosen image – it has been reduced by 10% and I am using only the center part where the two flowers and birds are.
I am using this piece of linen – the solid lines mark out a 4X6″ section.
The portion of the image that I want to paint and stitch has now been transferred to the fabric. Then I sewed batting to the back to add a bit of “plump” when it is stitched. The next step is to choose paint colors and make a stitch plan. Exciting!
