i recently joined a yahoo group: fabric postcard swaps. the first one i was able to join in with was themed Winter Playground. i already got one beautiful card from one of the ladies, who lives in the Netherlands. she designed a card that looks like rabbits frolicking in a snowy landscape. i eventually came up with this beauty:
i sewed strips of blue fabric together to make the background, and cut out and appliqued the figure of the girl ice skating. it didn't take as long as i thought to make four of these, but it seemed like a long time! i'm not sure that i like applique that much to cut out a bunch of tiny little shapes. anyway, it's done and i'm happy with it.
