The past two years I've started on my fiber Valentine cards before fall. I have to say it makes life easier come February, if I start them earlier. The winter holiday's and preparing for Florida seem to take up the majority of my time so I don't get to do a lot of sewing. Once again, I've started early on my cards. AND THIS IS MY LAST YEAR TO MAKE FIBER VALENTINE CARDS for friends and family. There...I said it....and I mean it this year!
Obviously, I won't show some of the cards I've already made but will show some of my process! I'm using Margarita's (from Margas Crafts
) method to make paper/fabric. You can see the start of my process here
This is the back of the paper/fabric collage sheets which measure 8 1/2" x 11" each.
And the front!
Next I painted the pieces with Set-a-Color paints and when dry applied foil, using a stencil to create some pattern.
And now the fun begins! Cutting out and sewing on!
Here's a sneak peek! Next preview showing will be February 2019!!! Hopefully, they will all be finished WAY before then!
So if I don't blog about 'what I'm doing', you'll know I am doing something! I only have 60-65 fiber cards to make...but this is my LAST year......did I say that before! Honest, it really is!!! I promise this won't be a 'fake news' post!
