...we all need to have a quick and fun little project every now and then. So I joined a group on facebook called 'FMQ Postcard fun and challenges'. In this group, members each month make postcards and then post the card to an allocated partner, the cards are made of fabric only, there are no paper or card used in making them, and of course have some type of free motion quilting on it.
So I thought of sharing with you my swap for May 2013. This month had no particular theme, and we could make whatever we felt like, we both had fmq feathers on our cards, only different types of course.

The whole idea is to send the card 'naked', as you would a normal postcard and not inside an envelope. I admit I was quite worried that my card would not reach its destination. I was so scared the stamp would come off and it would just end up in some bin somewhere.
Janet did however receive her card (all the way to the UK), although somewhere along its route someone used a piece of sellotape to secure the stamp.
It was really nice going to the post office and finding my card.
Janet also has a two part tutorial on her blog on how to make fabric postcards, here is part one and part two for those interested in making some of their own. Its not only fun to make, but even better getting one!
