Fabric Postcards Galore!

I started making a lot of postcards last year. I made several then got bored and put them away. I finally got them out to finish some appliques and then satin stitch the edges. I donated a dozen of the postcards to the Sisters (Oregon) Outdoor Quilt Show to be sold or if any of them are frame worthy, some might be framed and auctioned off. The proceeds benefit The Make a Wish Foundation and the quilt show to help with running the show. After I donated the dozen I had finished, I decided to finish the rest of them. So there are a lot of them and some are the same appliques, but done in different fabrics. All cards measure 4" x 6", except the apples are larger.

The apples are a little larger than the other postcards.

Can be looked at this way or...
...turned like this.

I need to add some paint to this card to make the flower pop more.

I think this one needs some paint to enhance the flower. I might add the paint later.

I made a few zippered pouches with red fabrics. I started these before Valentine's Day, but I just recently finished them, so now I have them for next Valentine's Day, lol!!
Here is one side and the other side looks like the photo below:

More Fabric Vases

Now that the Contain It! book blog hop is over, I wanted to share some more fabric vases that I made. These were fun to make and addicting too. I wanted to try making some other shapes and bases. There is still time to have a chance at winning the Contain It! book by making a comment on the blog hop posting here. I will choose a winner on the 24th.
This is the medium size concave vase with a square base. I had a small piece of this Southwestern fabric, so it was perfect to use for this vase because I didn't need much fabric for the outside of the vase.
The interior fabric is a hand dyed fabric.
My husband really liked this vase because he loved the fabrics. So it's on his dresser now.
This is the large convex shape with a diamond base.
It looks best photographed at this angle, otherwise you can't tell that it's on a diamond base.
Another large convex vase but this one is on a square base.
Outside is a batik fabric.

Looking down inside the vase.

Another large convex shape this time with a hexagon base, which is my favorite combination. 
I chose this birthday fabric because I thought it would be fun to use for birthdays and place a glass vase inside and fill it with flowers. for whoever has a birthday. Birthdays in our family are in May, June, October and November. 
A nice yellow polka dot interior.
