Seasonal Doodle

Wanting to get a postcard ready for our guild exchange this week, I came across a cute pumpkin fabric and was inspired to do a little doodling.

I did this one quickly in my sketchbook
and then repeated a similar one directly onto a piece of my painted fabric to create this card.
Do you participate in postcard exchanges with a quilt guild or fibre-art group? You just never know what will show up in your mailbox

This is wonderful. I don't participate in postcard exchanges (I just completed my first postcard) but it would be nice to get art in the mail.

Oh I love the doodle! I have never participated in a fabric postcard exchange. Sounds fun.

I am loving that pumpkin doodle. Very nicely done, and I love how you doodled on fabric. I may have to have a go at that. I love swapping postcards in the mail. In the past 3 years I have swapped hundreds of postcards with people from all over the world. It is great fun. I love checking my mail box.

I have never participated in a postcard exchange. It would be such fun to receive them in the mailbox. :-) I love your doodle and it looks incredible on your painted fabric. Enjoy your day.

Wow, that's amazing how you doodled that and then translated it into a fabric project. I should try that sometime. I have never participated in a postcard exchange. Could be fun!

I adore pumpkins. I must be a closet North American! Funny I have been making postcards today - but not of pumpkins...you've given me an idea!

This postcard just makes me smile and smile -- and I would love to get involved in a postcard exchange -- what a wonderful way to collect art!

Very pretty card.
I did a lot of fabric postcard exchanges last year but not this year. Hoping to get back into the swing of it next year.

I guess I should have put up a Halloween or Fall themed prompt, eh? Love the pumpkin!

Kim said...

Adorable card!
So what do you use to draw directly on the fabric?
I am so proud of my little postcard from you and just think its the only one! there is nothing like hand made art!

Happy Sewing
