That was the theme for my latest postcard swap. Now, granted, it's been a few years since I was in school . . . but I remember how much I loved buying new supplies at the beginning of the year! MMMM, the smell of brand new crayons!
Well, back to postcards. I used my Bernina's programmed alphabets to stitch ABCs on a piece of fabric.
Then I practiced some free motion quilting. Do these look like apples? Even some of them???
Then I cut and fused some items from a school-themed print. In fact they are from one of the Loralie fabrics . . .I'll save the ladies for another project.
and here are two finished postcards with a few cute buttons added and a zigzag stitch edging. One of these is on it's way to my partner now.
