I thought I'd do another fabric alphabetica postcard, so this one (S) is Slashed, Silk, Stitch, Sample.
The front is very simply done, I sewed a layer of blue silk onto some orange silk, sewing from the edge of the piece to the centre in an oblong spiral. I took some sharp scissors and cut the fabric between the stitching, then wrote the words on a small piece of vilene and sewed that on.
For the stitched sample, I just sewed straight lines of embroidery stitches onto the silk, which was layered onto pelmet vilene, and sewed another vilene 'label' on. Finally I sewed the slashed silk to the stitch sample and posted it to a friend!
