The first one was fun, so here's Round 2. One new rule: NO STRESSING! This is supposed to be fun.
I love fabric and I love postcards. Let's combine the two!
NOTE: You can do this any way you want, as long as it involves a. fabric or an image of fabric and b. a postcard, combined.
You can make a fabric or quilted postcard, or you can use a photo of cloth on your postcard. You can purchase a postcard that has fabric as a theme: kimono silk or kitschy vintage fabric ads, for instance. You can just show the cloth itself, or you can show it being made, as in handweaving or knitting. It's up to you. Use your imagination and have fun!
You will have three partners. To each partner, send one fabric-themed or fabric postcard.
Again, your postcards can be made or bought. You can use photos or include actual fabric. (Just be sure the fabric is affixed well enough to go through the post intact, please.)
If you're trying to create a little fabric masterpiece, and it just isn't working for you: Don't worry! Send a printed or photo card! That will be perfectly wonderful, as long as the image has something to do with textiles and is something you like. I foresee doing this swap a few more times, so there will be more opportunities to create that masterpiece.
Write a little note on the card about why you chose or created what you did.
Everybody has a different preference, but mine is to have the card written on and not mailed in an envelope, so that's what we'll do in this swap. Some amazing fabric postcards have gone through the system perfectly intact, so this is a great opportunity to take a chance and see what happens. Think of it this way, too: You'll be brightening the day of all the postal workers who handle your card on its journey.
As a simple courtesy, please post in the comments thread when you send your postcards out and when you receive them. And when it's time, please rate your partner based on the swap description, not whether the postcard was to your taste. Thanks!
Newbies welcome with a full profile; minimum rating of 4.5 for everyone else, please. Any questions, contact me.
