How to make a Fabric postcard

Simple Fabric Postcard Instructions

Material List

1 - 4 inch by 6 inch piece of Pellon Peltex 70 stabilizer( This makes the postcard stiff.)

1 - 4 inch by 6 inch piece of muslin or white cotton fabric (For the back)

1 - 4 inch by 6 inch piece of cotton fabric (For the front )

2 – 4 inch by 6 inch pieces of fusible webbing. I use Wonder Under or Steam Lite.

Hot Iron (No water or steam)


I buy the Pellon Peltex 70 and the Wonder Under fusible webbing at Wal-Mart. You can also purchase them at Hancock Fabric, JoAnn's, or Hobby Lobby. Your local quilt shop might carry them also. You can purchase Pellon Peltex 71. It has the webbing already on one side. The Pellon Peltex 72 has it on both sides. The 72 is good if you aren't going to do any fancy stitching because you can adhere both the front and back material at the same time.

If you use the Pellon Peltex 70 you will need to iron a piece of the Wonder Under fusible webbing to the back side of both of your fabrics. There will be a paper layer that will need to be peeled off before you can iron it on to the stabilizer. Make sure not to use steam it will make it hard to peel the paper backing off of the fusible webbing. Lay the fabric on the stabilizer with the webbing facing the stabiliaer. Iron the fabric for about 10 seconds. If you want to embroider or hand stitch on the front do so before you add the back material or your stitches will show. Once you have the front like you want iron the back on like you did the front. To finish off the postcard I use a satin or zig zag stitch around he outer edge of the postcard to give it a finished look. You could also do a blanket stitch by hand.
