Embroidered Postcards - The Magic Onions

Embroidered Postcards

Welcome back to Ingrid, my friend from Spain. Today, Ingrid shares a delightful project she and her kids worked on together. Now I know just how we are going to make our Christmas cards this year!

 “Several months ago, I got these wool fluorescent colors .

I thought it might be fun to make some postal embroidery with the children to mail to some family and friends. A way for us to say goodbye to the summer.

First I made some drawings with beach motifs, in a form of post cards.

Then, I punched little holes along the pencil lines with a fat needle to start sewing. We chose the colors and the children got to “work” …

 

Pretty post cards for our special friends and family to receive in their letterboxes. Hopefully arrive safely at your destination :)

How cute is this idea! I would almost die of happiness to get one of these little cuties in the letterbox… how about you?

Thanks once again, Ingrid, for sharing your sweet ideas with us :-)
