Anyway, three simple pieces - birdcage, bird and wing.
Here is what I have so far:
It ended up being 8 1/2" by 11". Kind of big for a post card, but I figured it could be a pillow or framed or whatever. I am not sure about the flower. First I tried it with just pinked edges and one layer gathered but couldn't get it to lay very flat. Then I made this flower. Maybe it is the brown button? I didn't search long enough to find anything like the inspiration bird cage, and this plaid was soft enough for the bird to stand out against. Anyway, I think it needs something around the top of the birdcage - like a chain or something. I also plan to give the bird an eye.
And yes, the edges are all turned under and finished. Mostly because I know somewhere I have 42 types of unidentifiable iron on sticky white sheets, but the freezer paper was handy and that is what I am used to using to make little fabric shapes to put on cloth. What can I say, it was my first try at this postcard stuff!
