I really like drawstring bags. I like them even better with spring surprises in them!

Drawstring bags are a fun and crafty alternative to gift wrapping things in boxes and wrapping paper. Cheaper too! Many drawstring bags can be made from a FQ.

The internet is rife with tutorials on how to make drawstring bags and different sewing skill levels. Here are just a few that I found while doing a google search this morning!

Ok Ć¢ā‚¬ā€œ here are the swap details:

  • You will SEW one fabric pouch using spring theme, pattern, or "feel" to it. When creating your bag, please be sure the profile surprise fits easily in the bag.

  • You will send your partner a profile surprise valued between $3-$5 USD in the fabric bag that youĆ¢ā‚¬ā„¢ve sewn for them. Please check your partners profile to see what their likes, dislikes and possible allergies are before heading out for the store. This should be a very personalized swap based on their profile.

  • Please include a nice chatty note on a spring card Ć¢ā‚¬ā€œ homemade or storebought. Only writing the swap name and your Swapbot id in the card is not ok and does not meet swap requirements.

  • Sending out-of-date, fragile, or otherwise undesirable items is not in the spirit of the swap. If you are sending food or treats, please only send unopened items and in the original packaging.

  • Let's be thoughtful and make the swap special for your partner! If you are sending food items, please put your items in a zip-top baggie inside of your package, padded envelope or box to avoid a horrible mess if the product leaks or has a "postal accident."

  • Please also be considerate of your outer shipping materials and use appropriate mailers. If a box is needed, please use a box. Please rate your swap partner promptly for the package you have received.

  • This swap is open to all members in the group with no recent 1's or 3's.

  • Please make every effort to send your swap on time - if for some reason you are not able to send your package by the send by date - please communicate with your partner and host. We all know how emergencies come up. We are an understanding group, but communication is key! We rely on being able to have a fun and safe swap environment here - let's keep it that way! :-)

Happy Spring and Happy Swapping!
