Calligram postcard



As you may have noticed, I have added a Fiber postcards page to this blog (see tabs under the header). I love making and swapping postcards and have put my favourites on the page. This is the most recent one; the elephant card I mentioned here a few weeks ago.

This Dutch calligram fabric is now for sale in my Spoonflower shop; the English version will be added one of these days - as soon as I have received my swatches (I need to order a small amount of each fabric and approve of them before I can put them up for sale).



I have made some more calligrams and added them to my Spoonflower designs - the letters I, J and K are covered now as well! (thanks to Rebekka for suggesting the ibis - which is for Brisbane what the pigeons are for Amsterdam!) Will I be able to make Robbie an Alphabet Calligram Quilt before his 4th birthday in September??

If you are are looking for some special fabric and would like me to design a calligram on a certain theme (animal, plant, object...) for you, please leave a comment or send me an email - I'd love to give it a go!

Linda, I love your calligram postcards. I love the jellyfish in english better than in dutch. KWAL!

Love the ibis (not the ones in Brisbane, they are a true pest there!) I think the alphabet in animal calligrams would be just perfect! Can't wait to see the result.

Your work always intriques me. Happy to hear you are or will be selling more fabric from your own designs. How rewarding.

Linda I loved the postcard you sent me. If you gave me your address I'd send you one back.
