100 Inchies Project #51-60 - Summer
Swap Coordinator:doublesided (contact)
Swap categories: Crafts  Handmade  Inchies 
Number of people in swap:45
Last day to signup/drop:April 30, 2009
Date items must be sent by:May 19, 2009
Number of swap partners:2

The aim is at the end of the year to have 100 inchies! This is the 6th part of the swap and is for inchies #51-60, can you believe we've made so many already!!

You have to make 10 inchies in total related to the theme "Summer". You will have two partners and will send them 5 inchies each. So get your thinking caps on and think of things related to Summer .... sun, holidays, games....

Please make inchies you would like to receive yourself, and please put some effort into them. Slapping a sticker onto a piece of cardstock is not acceptable. The inchies can be decorated by any means - ie. paper, paint, drawing, collage, sewing, just so long as they are 1" x 1" square and sturdy.

Any questions please ask - I dont bite!

The swaps have been going well so far, so lets keep the great work going! If you haven't already joined the project, its not a problem, you can still join now - you just wont have the full number at the end - but you will still hopefully have a heap of great inchies!


  • By joining the swap, you agree to making quality inchies which will be posted on time. Non senders will be banned from future swaps.

  • You must have a 4.7 rating or higher to participate. At least 5 completed mail swaps (i.e not e-swaps).

  • Newbies welcome if they have completed a profile (please send me a message to let me know you're joining).

  • I reserve the right to ban anyone from the swap, if i feel they will not be able to fufill the swap criteria.

  • No flakers! If you see a known flaker sign up, please let me know and i will contact them. I'd rather lose a flaker than a bunch of good swappers.

  • Note this is an International Swap - expect an overseas partner

    • Finally - everyone should have fun! If you are having any problems completing the swap please email me and your partners BEFORE the mail by date, so we can resolve any issues.

I'm back- inchies just call to me! They are addicting :)

Juliajae 04/13/2009 #

I'm back too :) Would have loved to do "under the sea". Life got away from me for a minute. Let me know if you need an angel.

doublesided 04/13/2009 #

A few others missed the deadline for the Sea ones too @Juliajae - Ill pm you details.

doublesided 04/13/2009 #

Great to see you back @Lishmo - I knew I could make an addict out of you!! wink

moniquerobyn 04/15/2009 #

Whoever ends up being my partner, please check out my profile. I will be moving during the deadline for this swap, so I would love for you to wait to send your goodies til I get my new address! :) I'll contact whoever you may be as soon as partners are assigned as well! :)

moniquerobyn 04/16/2009 #

Update: I should be safe. Dates have moved for us again and I will be moving from May2nd to the 5th. So I should have a new address by the time partners are assigned. I will still keep everyone posted. Thanks everyone!:)

doublesided 04/18/2009 #

Good stuff @Moniquerobyn =)

Looking for someone who wants to play catch up on inchies. I joined in on the fun at #31 - #40....so looking for someone(s) to fill in the blanks prior to that swap. So I'm missing

1-#10 and #11-20 and #21-#30. I don't even know what the theme were for those. Let me know if anyone wants to play catch up. Also if anyone could tell me what the themes were. Thanks so mcuh

SuzeesCrafty 04/18/2009 #

wow how come that posted so big? SORRY!

jandcmom 04/19/2009 #

SuzeesCrafty...I don't have any of those either. If you would like to do a swap, pm me and we can set things up. doublesided told me the themes were animals, love, flowers. I guess this is the order.

MommytheMaid 04/20/2009 #

I am in love with inchies and have some great ideas for summer ones.

Are we allowed to send fabric inchies as long as they are backed well?

MommytheMaid 04/20/2009 #

I wouldn't mind helping catch up either since this is my first inchie swap.

TexyDeb 04/21/2009 #

I would like to get in on the Animals swap because I don't have that one either.

dmcanepari 04/21/2009 #

I am addicted to inches and I also wouldn't mind doing a catch up either.

gramsbuttonbox 04/22/2009 #

I'd also be real interested in playing "catch up" - I was just plain scared to join, at first, but then dived in on a "beginners" inchie swap, and my partner seemed to love what I sent her, so I guess I did okay! Please also count me in, for catching up, if that's okay, or maybe we could actually have a 'make up" swap, just for the people who missed? (something to think about)

crescendo 04/22/2009 #

@MommytheMaid I would love fabric inchies! I say go for it! I also missed the sea creature one if there is any sort of do over I would love to know :o)

MommytheMaid 04/23/2009 #

I just saw that I am unable to participate so I need to drop. I am very sorry that I did read that rule the first time around. I have swapped before many many times, just not here. I will be back though once I have the requirements :D

doublesided 04/23/2009 #

Wow so much chat!!

Great to see some of you are enjoying them so much you are organising a catch up - brilliant!

Fabric inchies are indeed acceptable so long as they are backed to make them sturdy. I havent been lucky enough to receive a fabric one yet but Im holding out!! LOL!

@Mommythemaid newbies are welcome so long as they mail me first so I shall drop you a line - don't see why you should miss out!

I'll be listing the next swap very soon so keep your eyes out for it!

doublesided 04/23/2009 #

OK the next swap is listed .... Wings

evieroz 04/23/2009 #

I'd also like to play catch-up. I'm missing 1 thru 50. Probably too many to play catch-up though.

gramsbuttonbox 04/23/2009 #

Im in your same situation, evieroz, even tho I've joined a couple other inchie swaps, so at least I do have a few - i don't know how it will be done, or even IF it's really feasible, but I'm sure hoping that someone might take the lead to head up the "catch-up's" - - I'll be watching, and hoping,

luvmybabies 04/23/2009 #

I'm just starting out with inchies also, but would love to be able to catch up to be able to end up with 100 of them at the end. I'm interested gramsbuttonbox and evieroz!

gramsbuttonbox 04/24/2009 #

because of some serious health issues in the family, I have to drop the swaps that have not closed - hopefully I'll be back soon,

take care everyone, Mary

moniquerobyn 04/24/2009 #

So, unfortunately, I'm actually going to have to drop out for this round! :( But, it's kind of good news. Our wedding has been pushed up by about two years, getting married on the 16th of May now!! So, to say the least, I'm REALLY not going to have time for swapbot for about the next month. Moving 1300 miles away in a week, and getting married in three. :( I'm so sorry!!

doublesided 04/24/2009 #

Oh, was it something I said!

Congrats @Monquierobyn - enjoy your day! Sorry @gramsbuttonbox - hope your family makes a speedy recovery.

MommytheMaid 04/26/2009 #

Thanks for dropping me a line to let me know! I am signed up again and excited :D

julieb 04/27/2009 #

How did I miss under the sea? Turn my back for just a smidge------- I need a catch up for that. And i will click on the Join now.
Doublesided- How about doing a second one of everything. I could help host if needed. I have one hosting gig under my belt for good measure. :^o jB

dmcanepari 04/27/2009 #

Doublesided- I can also help run some catch up swaps. I have one under my belt with swap-bot but I have hosted many on other sites. I am will to help, just let me know


doublesided 04/28/2009 #

Girls please feel free to host the swaps again if you like. I don't want to rehost because it means I need to make more again and given that Ive had to make at least 20-30 for each round to cover flakers Im sick of looking at previous themes!
You may be better hosting private swaps for those who list here because this will prevent (hopefully) flakers joining.

winniethepooh 04/30/2009 #

i don't mind helping anyone with ones you have not got i love making inches.

doublesided 05/ 1/2009 #

I'm just awaiting a few replies to emails from people I want to ensure can complete the swap before I assign partners - but hopefully they will reply asap. Keep watching for your partners!

mypoohbear60 05/ 6/2009 #

hi, I missed # 41 - 50, I can catch anyone one up on the previous ones in exchange for these. Just IM me and let me know. Thanks in advance.

JennieGee 05/20/2009 #

I need to catch up 1 to 39. Anyone interested in some or all PM me.
