'Oh, Baby!' Fabric Postcards
I've recently started swapping fabric postcards with two terrifically talented and wonderful friends Debbi Baker and Jhodi Bennett. I got to chose the first theme and as my nephew Sean Alexander was filling my world with cuddles (and some dirty nappies), I came up with 'Oh, Baby!' So guess who's photo I've used in the above postcard! It was my first ever attempt at printing onto fabric. I had a few hiccups... have a lot to learn, but was quite happy with it in the end. Especially for a first attempt.
by Debbi Baker
I love the vintage image Debbi has used in her piece. She's embellished her postcard so beautifully. The pink varigated thread Debbi used for some machine embroidery is exquisite!
By Jhodi Bennett
Jhodi's postcard also has a very vintage look. The image is so sweet and I love the combination of fabrics and embellishments she's used. The blue and cream trim is divine!
It's so exciting to receive such lovely art work in the mail. I started working on the next postcard for our swap on the weekend. I haven't quite got it just right yet. I love the theme we are doing now, I've found it a little challenging than I expected and I can't wait to see what Debbi and Jhodi do with theirs.
