Postcard 50...Trade Being Arranged!

(Click on image to enlarge.)

This postcard was made from a bag of scrap yarns embellished into a solid piece of fabric. The brown circle was also an embellished piece of yarn. To this was added a vintage button and some machine zigzag stitching.

The reverse is signed and dated in free motion embroidery on a piece of fabric paper. The fabric paper was made using scraps of late 18th and early 19th text, handmade paper, and metallic paints on unbleached muslin.

I'm thrilled to be trading with Arlee whose blog I regularly read here. Arlee is also one of the fabulous fiber artists sending work for the Invitational portion of CYBER FYBER.
