Fabric Postcards

Posted by adamswife on January 12, 2008

Monet PC

My friend, Schnuckiputz, suggested that I post pictures of the fabric postcards that I made recently. Above is a postcard I created as part of an exchange. The theme was Famous Artists. This represents Monet’s “Countryside.”

Christmas PC

This is a picture of one of the fabric Christmas cards I sent out last month.

  1. Those are lovely. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen such things … but I’m not much of an artys-craftsy soul. I’m more of a wordsmith. Thanks for sharing.
    Hugs and blessings,

    Thank you for your kind words. Your wordcraft paints beautiful pictures.

  3. Very, very nice and unique. I love both, but I really like all of the stitching and the colors of the first 🙂 You’re so crafty!

    All the colors are due to my ability to buy good fabric. 😀 Thank you for the compliment.

    Eve,thanks for posting your lovely fabric postcards !
    How did you get the branches to look so real on your
    Monet’s Contryside ? I tried to figure it out when
    I received your beautiful fabric postcard.

    Schnucki, I used a copy of the painting as a guide and used varied width zig-zag stitches to create the satin stitch branches. As I got closer to the end of each branch, I adjusted the width narrower and narrower. And I used 2 strands of thread through the same needle – one a brown and the other a grey – to get the subtle variations of color.

    Rebecca, thanks for stopping by and for your kind words. Please feel free to visit any time.
