Step 1: Supplies
Supplies: embroidery floss, awl, embroidery needles, cardboard scrap, cardstock, scissors, glue, image.
Step 2: Postcard Backs
You can start by printing a nice old fashioned looking postcard back onto perforated cardstock. We use Staples Matte White Postcards–$21.99 for 200 cards–we’ve made a lot of cards this summer. Remember to save half the cards for your blank postcard fronts. Or skip this completely and just cut out a rectangle of nice sturdy cardstock in the color of your choice.
Step 3: Punch Some Holes
Step 4: Get Sewing
After you've punched those holes you now have a pattern for your project. Using a back stitch or stem stitch (of sorts), follow the outline you’ve made. Take a look at Jenny Hart’s Sublime Stitching for some embroidery basics and marvelous patterns.
