fabric note cards

This is a craft idea for my friend Grazia.

These are the notecards I made using quilt squares and flannel/felt pieces. I'd attach bows and little jewels with a hot glue gun, then hot glue them onto plain notecards. They were sold in sets of 5 using like colors and patterns. These are an example of "outfits" but I also made cat, dog, floral, beach, shoe, hand bag, and accessory themed sets. Make sure you use small extra sharp scissors for cutting the clothing pieces. You could even sketch on the back of the fabric what you want to cut, but if you use tiny scissors it's easier to just do it free hand. Some of my earlier ones are not very proportionate but it still works.

And here's a plug for the store that used to carry them Vintage Inspired, but sadly they left their lake location and moved to San Clemente. Sign of the times I guess.

Have fun at the fabric store!
