Fabric and fibre Postcards: Day 44

Window Template :
A tool I use regularly with my Crazy Quilting is a “window template
or viewing tool.
In the case of fabric postcards the template window measures 6 by 4 inches and is cut from a piece of matt board.
(I normally use black card for this but as its gone walkabout at the moment ,the grey will do to illustrate its purpose!

Initially make your postcard / fabric block larger than required….e.g 5 by 7 inches instead of your finished 6×4 size.
Having made your 5×7 fabirc postcard,place your template over it to decide where is the best area of the design.

Hint: If you use an A4 sized cardstock,you will be able to to make two template windows by first cutting the stock in half and cutting the 6×4 window in the centre of the resulting 5 and a half by 8 and a half inch pieces. Posted by Picasa



  1. I use a window tool for my PCs and fabric ATCs. I find it a great help for positioning images, trims, etc 🙂

  2. Your fibre postcards are a neat idea. Can you actually mail them??

    Maybe I should make a beaded one. LOL
