Pet Postcards 2014
‘Tis the season to whip up some Pet Postcards.
You can read more about the Pet Postcards from last year here. And read more about the fundraising event on Pokey blog here. Last year the fundraising event raised more than $40,000 for Friends for Life No-Kill Animal Shelter in Houston.
These postcards are made of fabric and have 3 traditional quilt layers. They measure 4″ x 6″ .
The cards can be made in any style or method you prefer. The all painted cards in this post are created by my daughter. (Instagram @meepsketch)
She had a great time creating the little pieces with the InkTense pencils and Sharpie markers.
This year our Pet Postcard event was coordinated through the San Antonio Modern Quilt guild and was hosted at a member’s home. It was a blast. Very fun social event and very fun to trade all sorts of scraps for the projects. Turns out, our gals have loads of novelty pet fabrics. I had no idea they even make that many cat prints. seriously.
You may recognize these little guys, above, from the FREE pdf template last year. Feel free to click the link or image below to download the kitties so you can whip up a few pet postcards, too.
Each card sells for $20 at the Houston Quilt Festival in October. They are fast to make and benefit a great cause.
