Machine Embroidered Post Cards

What are you most proud of? I was able to take simple line drawing images and digitize them using the My Design Center scanning and editing functions of my Brother Dream Machine to create a series of charming post cards. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you own a Brother Dream Machine or a Baby Lock Destiny, you can easily scan and digitize coloring book style drawings into beautiful embroidery. For these projects, I embroidered on felt, then sewed the felt to card stock. Postal regulations require that you write POST CARD on the back of your card. You can put a stamp on your card for mailing, but if you have added beads or buttons, it's best to have the Post Office hand stamp your card so it doesn't get caught up in the sorting machinery. These make wonderful gifts and who doesn't enjoy receiving a hand made post card??
