I've decided to host another swap. This is going to be a tote/bag/purse swap. I am very excited and I hope to get some fellow "bag lovers" in on a fun time.
I seem to get a lot of questions when I host swaps, so I thought these guidelines would be helpful.
The bag you make should have:
- quilt shop quality fabrics
- stabilizer or fusible fleece
- stabilized handles
- at least one pocket
- a finished lining (no raw seams)
- magnetic snap closures
- extra pockets
- material flowers
- cute buttons
- accessories (lip balm, tissues, gum)
You DO NOT have to have a blog to participate. This time around, I may ask for a sewing/blogging reference if I am not familiar with you. I hope that you do not take this the wrong way. Everyone is welcome to participate and I hope that we all have the chance to make a new "friend". However, I have hosted swaps where a partner has never shipped their project. This is EXTREMELY disappointing to the person that doesn't get their item. Therefore, I may ask you for a reference and I hope you will understand.
So, the sign ups start today through Friday, June 4th. I will contact you with the information for the person you will be making a bag for sometime over the weekend. I am going to run this similar to my past swaps...you will know the person you are shipping to, but not the person who is making your bag (or shipping to you). So, it will be a surprise.
The deadline to ship is July 31st. Please, if you sign up for the swap do everything possible to get the bag sent by then. If something really urgent does prevent you from doing so, please communicate that to me as soon as possible. Please remember to send me an email when you ship.
If you ship on time, your name will be entered in a drawing for a prize (my last remaining Dandy Bag pictured below).
Blog Address (if you have one)
Are you willing to ship internationally?
When you think of your package arriving, what would you love to see in it? A bag, a purse, colors?
What style bag would you like to sew? (bag or purse)
Don't forget to grab the bling at the top for you blog. :)
SIGN UPS ARE OFFICIALLY CLOSED. Thank you.
