Mother- Daughter Postcard Swap

Since we both love to sew fabric postcards I came up with this idea for mom and I to do.
 We each mail each other an envelope filled with random scraps of fabrics and trims.
We have to use only those materials to make a card
and then pop it in the mail!

Here are the contents of the envelope I sent Mom:


 And here is the card Mom made:





Here is what Mom sent me:



And I made this...



Next envelope of goodies on its way!
It's fun to be forced to work with someone else's stash and style.
And these seem awfully fitting with Mother's Day around the corner.

Great idea! You both created such beautiful fabric postcards. It's really challenging to be 'forced' to use someone else's choice of materials.

Awesome idea!!! They look great and I like what you said about being forced to use something that is from someone elses stash. I think I might try something similar with my sister, she has been complaining that she wants to be more creative. Thank you for the wonderful idea:) Have a Blessed week.

What a nice project to share with your mum. Our mothers' day is much earlier than yours, and my sons seemed to forget it altogether this year!
