MAIL CALL: The Letter "L"

I'm making a series of fabric postcards for a special little boy.

I printed out an L in a fun font.

I traced the letter "L" on Steam a Seam 2 and fused it to a scrap of fabric.  I fused the letter to another scrap of fabric and I added some Tearaway Stabilizer behind the fabric, threaded my handy-dandy Handi Quilter Stitch 210 machine with In The Pinks FabuLux Thread in the needle and DecoBob in the bobbin.

I started stitching down the letter "L" using a blanket stitch (set at 5.0 width and 2.0 stitch length):

I tore away the stabilizer and fused some scrap backing fabric, Peltex, and my top fabric together.

Then I trimmed the card to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I set my Stitch 210 machine for zig-zag (set at 5.0 width and .4 stitch length) and stitched around the edge of the card using Neon Lime FabuLux Thread:

Another card, ready to mail!

I sent the card off in a clear mailing envelope and am now planning which letter to make next.
