In the hoop postcard

Well I had a couple of hours to myself this afternoon whilst Bethany was at playgroup so I thought I'd have a go at a fabric postcard. I'd seen them on Etsy and loved the idea, so I bought an "in the hoop" design from Embroidery Library. I found some pretty fabric from my stash and the great thing about these postcards is that you don't need very much material - a fat quarter will make loads of them!

I was pretty pleased with how it turned out, considering this is my first attempt at an "in the hoop" project and I've only tried applique a couple of times too. When it came to the back, I couldn't resist dusting off my box of rubber stamps. I knew I had a postage stamp one somewhere and when I found "You mean the world to me", I just had to use it. I can see another addiction coming on!
