Hey guys!

This is a swap for sewers (or would-be sewers!) to swap a small homemade sewn craft! This might be a hat, a stuffed animal, mittens, a potholder, a book cover, a coffee cup holder, something embroidered, socks or anything else! Your imagination is your only limit! It doesn't need to be compicated or expensive, feel free to use scrap material! It may be hand sewn or maybe on a machine. Just make something simple that you would love to get and that the recipient would love to open! This is a great opportunity to make someone's day! Happy sewing!!

Other ideas: bags, pin cushions, sewn magnets, coin purses...and on and on and on!!

I make wine/liquor bags. I am ready to ship to whomever is in need of one in the swap.

I was looking for an excuse to make another credit card wallet. I'm excited to share a cute little project for my first swap!

Welcome @abbeycakes =) Hope you have fun!!!

pahasiga 04/ 6/2011 #

I need a credit (or rather, loyal customer) card wallet badly!

sueandsew 04/ 6/2011 #

My first swap also. Make lots of little samples, now have someone to give some to!!

sueandsew 04/ 6/2011 #

I'm guessing info will be sent re how the swap works? I've just joined. Also not sure how to send something international. Thanks for helping.

pahasiga 04/ 7/2011 #

@sueandsew , reading site's FAQ would be a good start and would give you many answers.

user2637 04/ 7/2011 #

@sueandsew if you are sending a package internationally (and if you get an international partner this will be a package, due to the size), you have to go to the post office and fill out a customs form, and let them ask you if it's perishable or hazardous. Here's the USPS site I use for estimating postage: link.

Any time after midnight (eastern time) on the 8th, the host will "assign partners" and then you will know who you are sending too! Good luck!

Cant wait to send one of my mini-balsam "BUOY" pillows from Maine...Fun!

CreatrixAzalea 04/ 7/2011 #

hi guys! oh my gosh, i've been away and came back to a huge # of ppl swapping!!! so excited! @pahasiga and @user2637 great advice guys, thanks! @sue and sew click on the swap after the 8th, look to the right, click on "my partners" or something like that and then go to the post office with the address and your sewn project and send it away! this will be lots of fun! Happy sewing!

Thanks Ladies for the wishes for wine bags. If your names are not the ones selected on the swap, if you would like to do a one on one swap, let me know. As you will see I need ratings as I am fairly new & have only 3 swaps completed under my belt, but so far only ONE rated. PM me after the swap if interested.

KimberleyB 04/ 8/2011 #

I make sock dolls and toys, so this would be a great one for that I think! :)

corpseflower333 04/ 8/2011 #

I would be up for a hand embroidery swap partner! doesn't have to be large piece, 5in by 7in or smaller would be fine. I am into animals,rats and lizards. and anything kitchy,horror,witchy, or halloween. If anyone is into same and wants to be my partner let me know!

fawnscrafts 04/ 8/2011 #

So any small sewn item is cool huh?

I have been in the mood to make something small, and fearful at the same time.

fawnscrafts 04/ 8/2011 #

OK is an ATC wallet/holder cool?

My first, so no guarantees.

debspossum 04/ 9/2011 #

Anyone wanting a passport carrier? I have a great one in blue batik! I have special interest right now, like surprisses!

corpseflower333 04/11/2011 #

How is your swap partner chossen? I am unsure of the rules. Do I choose a partner or does the admin choose for us?? Please help. :)

CreatrixAzalea 04/11/2011 #

@corpseflower333 Hi! your swap partner has already been chosen for you. When you click on this swap to the right is a yellow box, in the box it says "See the partners you send to" if you click on that you will see the name and address of your swap buddy. When you send your small sewn project off, go to the same box and click on "Click here when you have sent your items" and when you receive the package from your partner click on "Rate your coordinator and partners" As well this website has a FAQ that you should check out. Have a good day!

Hi there!

My item is ready to ship. Do I leave a picture on the gallery of what I made or what is sent to me when I get it?

CreatrixAzalea 04/16/2011 #

@KimberleyB No pictures are necessary.If you want to take a picture of what you made and put it up on flickr you can do so and tag it swap-bot to have it show up on the website. Swap-bot's home page explains how to do this.

sueandsew 04/18/2011 #

I will be mailing my swap pkg tomorrow. This is so exciting. Can't wait to see what I receive also.

KimberleyB 04/20/2011 #

Hoping my swap partner loves her swap item! Going all the way to Australia!

sueandsew 04/23/2011 #

Sent my international pkg on Tues 19th, but forgot to click sent till today. It's on it's way...hope you like it!!

KimberleyB 04/27/2011 #

sueandsew 05/ 1/2011 #

sueandsew 05/ 8/2011 #

Rec'd my swap item...original and so needed. Thanks, Cyn.

sueandsew 05/11/2011 #

So what did everyone get? Tell us all about it.

sueandsew 05/30/2011 #

I got the cutest cup cozy...grey and purple with daisies. I use it every day at work to hold my water bottle. I've never had one and really like it. Does anyone else want to share what they got?
