    wraez (Sue) and I exchanged fabric postcards and this is what she sent to me. It is beautiful. I hope you can see the detail and craftmanship.

    Are you wanting to do a swap???
    I have been interested in these and don't really know how to construct one.
    Can you share the construction details?

    I have seen and heard about these for a while now, but wondered how they were put together. What is put between them for support of the writing? I could do one with puffins on them. They are our provincial bird. They are the parrots of the ocean!! they are so cute!! hmmm... I would be interested in a swap!!!

    When I get back maybe we could start a swap list like the dolls and challenge blocks.

    Hi Barb

    I really enjoyed swapping with you and would be happy to do it anytime! Just let me know when you are ready and did you want to pick a theme or should we do whatever we would like?

    Setting up a fabric postcard swap here would be a fun idea, there seems to be enough interest. We could do a small swap with groups of 4 or 5, or even 1 to 1 swaps.

    I have lots of links on how to do the fabric postcards...

    http://www.sewfunpatterns.com/fabricpostcards.html

    http://www.4ormore.co.uk/projects/postcards.htm

    this one has additional links on the side, is 7 pages long
    http://quilting.about.com/od/quiltpatternsprojects/ss/fabric_postcard.htm

    http://www.squidoo.com/fabricpostcards

    http://www.af-artscrafts.com/FabricPostcards.html

    http://www.arbeedesigns.co.nz/pdfs/Postcardlesson.pdf

    http://www.needlepointers.com/displaypage.aspx?ArticleID=29487&URL=http%3a%2f%2fdollmakersjourney.com%2ffabricpos tcards.html

    http://www.needlepointers.com/displaypage.aspx?ArticleID=32705&URL=http%3a%2f%2fwww.craftconn.com%2fMain.asp%3fTa sk%3dCustom%26Step%3dPostcard%2bLesson

    Okay, that is enough, I do have more but really reading the instructions in one or 2 of these is enough info to make your 1st postcard BUT I find looking at the photos of the postcards in each link is the fun part!

    enjoy

    That is truly cool, but you should probably delete the pic of the back showing the two real names and addresses. At least cover up the personal info. Never know about who's out there soaking it all up! :shock:

    edit: oops, Barb's gone for a week starting today. Can Patrice edit a post without deleting the whole thing?
