Three Things: Treasury – Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap

GBSPS

This week we received our postcards for the 7th Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap. The theme this year was ‘Create’, and we sent our creations off last week and have been eagerly awaiting ours from the postman – and now they’re all here!

Jo Brierley's postcard for the GBSPS

This celebratory design is from Jo, a card maker from Lincolnshire. She compared creating to a party, and we couldn’t agree more. Her card features a celebration message and is finished with stitched party bunting.

 

 

Sarah Clare's postcard for the GBSPS

Sarah is a pattern designer from County Durham, and she sent this beautiful hand dyed card (using raspberry juice!) with hand drawn illustration and hand stitched butterfly accents.

 

Megan Carroll's postcard for the GBSPS

This card came all the way from Washington, USA,  courtesy of Megan. A vibrant design finished with a neatly stitched border and lighting cord – you can see the creative process on her blog.
