I saw these adorable note cards months ago on Moda Bake Shop, and was waiting for the perfect occasion to try them myself. Last week I sent some pics out of my little guy to all of his great-grandmothers who don’t get to see him nearly as often as they’d like, and was excited to finally play around with my fabric scraps. The Bake Shop obviously uses Moda precut fabrics, which come nicely pinked along the edges. I just used fabric from my scrap bin, but remembered buying a special blade for my rotary cutter years ago that I’m sure, at the time, I thought was a mandatory requirement for any and all crafting I would ever do in the future, but found it still in the original packaging in the depths of a filing cabinet. (To be honest, I can’t believe I even remembered I bought that thing!) Anyway, that’s how I got the nice scalloped edge to my fabric strips. Also, as I’ve stated many times here, I love “sewing” my note cards, but am a little picky about seeing my stitches and threads on the inside of the card, so I did attach my fabrics to a piece of cardstock cut to the exact size of my cardfront, then attached that to the actual card base. This way all of my threads and stitches were well hidden.
Thanks Moda Bake Shop! These cards are too cute!

The card turned out adorable. I’m sure the grandmas LOVED them.
Thanks, Dee! Sometimes I think they just look at the pictures I send and don’t even see the cards 😉
Another Neat idea! I’ll have to crack out the sewing machine!
