Let It Snow Fabric Postcard

Been very busy here organizing my stash. I have limited storage space but am blessed with an amazing collection of beads, buttons, fabrics, laces and other trims and embellishments.

I've pulled some things that I know I won't be using again and will add alot of goodies to my shop next week. Since Etsy will be down this weekend (at least that's the plan at the moment) I figured I might as well hold off until I have everything together and do it all at once.

I'm getting ready to go through my fabric collection but in the meantime, I wanted to share my "Let It Snow" fabric postcard with you. I completed it last night.

Tatted Tree Fabric Postcard
Just as a refresher, I started with some white 28 count linen. I tore one of my hand painted fiber (dryer) sheets and fused it to the bottom with some Heat & Bond. I then stitched the snowflakes in using 2 strands of DMC floss and 1 strand of Kreinik Blending Filament and did eyelet stitches. I then sewed the tatted tree on by hand, embellished it with sequins and then added the Mill Hill snowman button. I sewed the blue snowflake sequins on and attached a bit of glittery snow with some fabric glue. I added some iron-on interfacing to the backing fabric and layered it all with cotton quilt batting and then blanket stitched the edges using 1 strand of DMC White Perle Cotton #5. I almost hate to part with it but I'll adding this to the shop next week too.

Ok, so now I'm off to re-organize my fabric stash.

I can see why you'd not want to part with it. I don't know if I could part with any of the ones you have made!
