I actually made this first one for a friend. I showed her the project and she had recipe cards from each of her grandmothers and one of her great grandmothers. I borrowed the cards and scanned them. I love their hand writing. One drew a little holly leave in the corner, another had a small stain (that scanned) from years of use. Be still, my vintage loving heart.
See....the first one is done wrong, the one on the right is done correctly b/c you are going to iron it down and transfer the print to the fabric, so you need the mirror image.
I bought some feed sake/tea towels at the craft store as well. They are huge, so I actually trimmed and sewed it down so it was just large enough to hold the recipes.
