Felted Postcard

I made this for a swap, we had to make a fabric postcard.

As I had those lovely wool fibres I felt inspired to felt the postcard. I really like the feel of it, very soft and warm. Previously I always made a card backing for a fabric postcard but this time I chose some batting and fabric for the back. This contributes to the cuddly factor. I like felting, it's so quick and easy to do. Albeit a bit dangerous at times, it's definitely best to not take the eyes of that needle. These needles are terribly sharp and a punched finger happens quickly. Very painful but the sound it makes is worse.
No blood on this cheery picture of goldfish though, I hope my swap partner likes the card as much as I do.

  1. It's super CUTE! I remember this kit from SG and remember the ouchy fingertips too. I also remember that I am allergic to WOOL and how bad this went for me. ROTFLOLOL
