A Surprise And A Fat Quarter

Does anyone love to sew? There are tons of wonderful paper crafts on Swapbot, but I am missing my sewing room. Join me and let's dust off our sewing skills! Any level of sewing is invited.

What is a Fat Quarter (FQ)??

A Fat Quarter is fabric cut 18" x 21", a quarter of a whole yard, or a half of a half yard. It's generally a tall rectangle of fabric.


  1. Sew an item that can be made with a Fat Quarter or less of fabric, this is a great swap buster. SENDERS CHOICE

  2. Send a 100% cotton Fat Quarter to your partner from your stash. Let's use what we have on hand. Read your partner's profile, and send a piece of fabric they would enjoy sewing. PROFILE BASED

  3. If you do not have likes section on your profile (or refers to fabric) please add a note in the comments section to help your partner.

  4. Include a note why you began sewing, enjoy sewing or why you made this particular item.

  5. One partner

Ideas for FQ items:

 * coin purses

 * pouches

 * potholder

 * rug mugs

 * totes

 * bibs

 * fabric postcards

 * the ideas are endless! 


  • Sender's Choice: Sew a FQ item for your partner

  • Profile Based: Send a 100% Cotton FQ to your partner

  • Write a note

  • All skill levels welcome

  • Newbies Welcome!

One more note: Extras not necessary. Please rate a 5 if you receive a sewn item, a FQ and a note, to meet swap requirements. As usual hearts are up to you.

Newbies welcome. I will angel if necessary.

Thanks for taking a look at this swap! Have a great day.

I prefer brighter colors, non-directional prints, or girl juvenile prints (I have a new great-niece) or that piece of fabric you don't know what to do with, ANY type of fabric is great! Thanks for looking at my swap!

Good idea for a swap -- thanks. I quilt all the time -- I don't want cartoon-y prints, like bright colored FQs, plain or with some pattern
