Vintage Christmas Postcard Pillow

This is a gift I made for my sister-in-law. I bought a bunch of vintage (this one is about 100 years old!) Christmas postcards on e-bay. I found fabric that can go through the printer at Hobby Lobby. I used the cotton poplin since it has the finest weave. I scanned the postcard, set the size, printed it and then found coordinating fabrics and trims. I machine stitched the picture onto the red fabric and mitered the corners on the sage fabric, then sewed on the trims by hand. It was so fun putting together the fabrics and this could work with any holiday postcard or maybe a botanical photocopy out of a book
