this fast+simple patchwork greeting card tutorial is a
super fun way to personalize a swap package or a note to a friend!
one standard greeting card or card stock
lapel stick (or glue stick!)
 trim+arrange fabric scraps in mosaic-like pattern.
 using a dab of a lapel stick (or glue stick!), adhere
the scraps to your greeting card. this is just to keep things
in place when stitching the scraps.
 sew around each of the scrap pieces. i used a 1/16"
seam allowance -- just enough to catch the fabric.
once you've got the basic steps down, the patchwork greeting card possibilities are endless! how about using a few decorative stitches around the scraps? or play around with some different fabric scrap shapes+threads! if you make some patchwork greeting cards of your own using this tutorial, please include them in the Canoe Ridge Creations flickr group -- i would love to see them!
