i have been invited to a birthday party, and the catch is that you must bring a hand-made birthday card. well, being a knitter (and no good at other crafts), i thought it could be fun to actually knit a card. the party is on friday, so i will probably only have time to do a two-sided card (as opposed to one that opens).
i was thinking of knitting two squares (or rectangles) of the same size, and then sewing up the four sides with a piece of foam-core or some other rigid material in-between. i am not sure what i’ll do for a design yet, but it will probably be something simple, as i am not very experienced in knitting with multiple colors (other than striping).
so, i was wondering if anyone here had ever done such a thing. i found a thread in which people had discussed using a small knit piece as a decoration for a hand-made card, but i couldn’t find anything about cards that were entirely knitted (nothing on google, either).
any suggestions? i was thinking of using stockinette stitch, since the rigid center would prevent any curling after everything is sewn up - does that sound good?
