Postcard fun

I'd intended to sew some when we got home from dinner last night but after watching TV for a while, and then catching up on the computer I was tired - Keith had gone to bed hours earlier but I knew I wouldn't sleep....so what did I do? Decided I should pull out those selvages I'd been saving and make some postcards. It was fun and I could have made more but I'm tired and I'm going to head to bed.

oh my, oh my, oh my!!! Waaay more than cute, cute, cute!!!

I have been saving selvages for some time in the hopes of making a picnic quilt *someday*. Recently I decided not to do a whole big quilt and have decided to make smaller items: purses, ckbk and pocket calendar covers and etc. POSTCARDS!! I didn't even think about postcards!!

CUTE CUTE CUTE!

I have to ditto what zizzybob wrote. Are these real postcards that can be mailed?

These are really, really cute! What a cute idea. I saw someone use them in a smallish purse too.
