I thought that I would share this picture of these fabric postcards before i send them away today. These are my two "Just Ducky" fabric post cards for the Fabric Postcards Yahoo list that I belong to. There were only three of us participating in this one so I send two off and get two back. I hope that everyone likes them.
I love making fabric postcards. There is something so amazing about a textile piece of art that goes through the mail. People always ask me if they get through the mail okay and I have to say yes! The postal workers love seeing them when I bring them in to be hand canceled and I have to think that they get even more special attention by the delivery people. My Christmas cards that I sent out got to all over Canada and the USA without any problems. You can see them here and here. And, I have to say that this was the first time that I have received and Thank You note for a Christmas card that I sent out. Now to think about what to send this year.
I thought that I would also share the results of my dying experiment yesterday. These wools turned out a little more purple than I wanted but I still think that they look great. I think that they may be darker because I started with gray and brown wools. I have ordered a couple of dying books to help me along; but, right now I am working in the dark a bit :) I want to take a course in dying wool this summer; but, it is hard to wait when you want to get started.
I'll dye more wools late maybe. I think that greens and blues may be next :)
Those are very cute - I'm going to have to try some simple postcards - there certainly is no shortage of inspiration and books around.
The duck postcards are so cute. I'm sure whoever receives them with just love them.
All these new ideas I see on blogs - what a good idea dyeing old wool bits - you can get great colours and all the different textures of different weaves of wool.
I am dying to try dying.LOL You did a good job with your project. It inspired me.
Very cool. The wool looks so much different.
I love the dark purple. It is wine colour. What are you going to use these fabrics for?
