Fabric Postcard Pear

A Paper Pieced Pear 

I've always wanted to make a fabric postcard. 
And guess what I found  when looking through the latest issue , #4 ,  of Paper Piecing 1/4 "  digital magazine?

Yay!  A pattern for making a paper pieced pear post card !

(Try saying that 3 times fast !)

**  Maybe you'll  want to just look at the pretty paper pieced pear postcard pictures from now on, if you are getting tired of my alliterations!

 This is a fun pattern... it comes out to be 4 " by 6 ".    

A Pear fabric postcard       pattern by Janeen at Quilt Art Designs
  from Paper Piecing 1/4" digital magazine issue 4 (here)

I found this biscotti jar when I looked for a snack  around in my kitchen  for some items
to 'pose' with my pear postcard !

Back of postcard: 
  { or alternate title: The posterior paper pieced  pear postcard preparations: } 

I found a free postcard template online, and saved it to a file.
Then, I used Print Artist software to import:
                                 ~  my Susie's Sunroom button as the stamp

                                 ~  and the text , "This is a postcard made at Susie's Sunroom. "

I printed my customized  postcard template on a  Printed Treasures fabric sheet . (here)  Two fit onto my Printed Treasures fabric sheet.
{ Note:   I had trouble getting all of the paper backing off of the sheet.  It is not a problem with making a post card. Could it be because my fabric sheets are older? )
Yay! There is one back ready to go for another fabric postcard!

Just pondering...Would anyone be interested in a fabric paper pieced  postcard swap ?

Oh, and just a reminder that next week-  March 2-8 - begins the
        " Simply Striped Pillow Blog Hop"

                                      right here at Susie's Sunroom !

  1. Very cute! I like the pear and love how you added personal detail to the back!

  2. Such a fun project, Susie!! I like your jar very much.


  3. An awesome alliteration! What fun to see a postcard. I've used paper for the back but you're so clever to print on fabric. Thanks.

  4. A very special card and a very interesting back - thank you for inspiration!

  5. Hahahahaha - A Particularly "pretty paper pieced pear postcard picture" Susie! You always find the greatest photo props too. That is really neat how you customized the back of the card too!
    Love your idea of a swap and i'm definitely in if you decide to carry it out!

  6. Tee hee...I love alliteration even more than I love puns! What a sweet project! The little Susie's Sunroom postage stamp on the back should be a real stamp. Adorable!

  7. Your pear postcard came out lovely. So bright and summery! I haven't tried printing on fabric yet, but this would be a good excuse to give it a try. Add me to your postcard swap list please!

  8. fabric postcards are so fun!!! I love your pear and how you printed on fabric for the back... you are so clever!!!
