I usually make my own christmas cards but some years they are more ambitious than others. Short of time this year, so I made a stencil and then got going with a bit of a production line. I didn't have any coloured paper so had to wash some paper with blue and red for background. The stencil image is just done in white acrylic.
The stencil. I like old fashioned stencil card. Especially the lovely smell!
The finished cards before adding a message inside.
We have two new granddaughters - Molly and Sophia. I thought I would make them each a reminder of their initial.
They are both made in the same way. First I doodled the appropriate letter onto some fabric previously hand-dyed, then painted in as much as I felt like. Then I stitched using both free machining and some of the embroidery patterns already on my sewing machine. I think they are quite cute!
Both finished and ready to go.
The sun was shining too!
I love textiles and especially quilting.
