Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap

When participating in this year's One World One Heart Event, I stumbled onto a neat little blog that was promoting the "Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap".   This is the third year of this event, and people from 14 countries signed up to participate; this year's theme was "LOVE".   I've been wanting to try my hand at making fabric postcards for some time now, so I took the plunge and signed up. 

I utilized some of my depression-themed quilting fabric, a vintage hankie, a fabric printout of an old romance magazine, silk flowers, sequins and beads to complete my creation, which was sent to Gina in the United Kingdom.   Here's my little creation:

I received an awesome fabric postcard from Nicola in London.  This features a detachable fabric brooch, which I absolutely love.  Here is what I received:

If you'd like to check out some of the other fabric postcards that were created this year and in the past, please see the FLICKR group for this event.

As always, I couldn't stop at just one postcard; I have 3 others in various stages of completion which I will share with you in the near future.  :)

How fun Wanda! Looks like you had a great time with it and who would have thought of a detachable element on postcard. Fun idea! Hugs!
