Lovely post !


A little while I discovered a great blog by Angela. She had photos of some postcards she had made for a swap and I instantly loved them. I emailed and asked if she would make some for me and I would pay her for them. Angela said no she would not sell me any but she would gladly make some for me in exchange for some fabric. Yippee !


They arrived a couple of days ago and honestly these are SO fantastic. I am now the very proud owner of my first fabric postcards. The attention to detail is wonderful and there is so much work that has gone into them. The little sequins are all individually sewn on. They are truly lovely. They are actually the first fabric postcards I have seen and I can quite see how people get addicted to swapping them and so on.




Thanks so much Angela. My kids love them and I'm going to have to keep an eye on Patrick in case he whips them - lol !


I have other stuff to share but I think these deserve a post of their own. My photos do not do them justice. Good stuff !

Your new "pets" truly are cute! And what a fun trade for two new friends!

Oh they are adorable. Postcards can become quite addictive. You can also buy the postcard stamp for the back of the card so they can be mailed. Loads of fun.

They are amazing, so cute.
A friend recently celebrated her
50th and some stitching friends made postcards as gifts and sent them through the post. "What not in an envelope?" I said.Yes they were sent like normal postcards, some had been post marked but others hadn't. I expect the people at the post office didn't have the heart to stamp them.

I agree they definitely deserved their own post. Are you going to make some now? I have seen a lot of people become completely addicted to the little postcards...

Those are too cute! Everytime I see those fabric postcards I want to try my hand at making some myself. How lucky you are to have such wonderful little treasures.
