Swap categories: Themed  Fabric  Sewing 
Number of people in swap:14
Type:Type 3: Package or craft
Rating requirement:4.90
Last day to signup/drop:August 18, 2011
Date items must be sent by:September 6, 2011
Number of swap partners:1

For this swap, you will send your partner 2 items:

1) Send your partner 1 fruit-theme FQ (18x22in) -- see your partner's profile for ideas.


2) Sew something for your partner using fruit-theme fabric -- a set of bookmarks or tissue cozies, a coin purse, a pouch, a potholder, etc. Again, think about what your partner might like.

This should be fairly lightweight, so it's open to international folks. So...1 FQ + 1 small finished project for your partner! :)

I'll be doing these themed swaps regularly. It's still summer, so I thought we'd have 1 or 2 more summery themes before starting in on the holidays and so forth. Feel free to post suggestions for future swaps in the comments!

Since some us prefer whimsical over realistic, please post in the comments your preference :)

I'll have to watch and hope for a sewing machine, though I have some apple items in stock...I'm into cute vintage apples [cute: yes, faces: absolutely no ;) ]

looks like fun, but with back to school, I'll need to wait for the next one.

I'm in! I'm not into the realistic fruit fabrics, I like the whimsical, kawaii and abtract-ish fabrics. Faces are cute!!! I think my blog or etsy shop should give you an idea...

Hey girl, thanks for inviting me to your fab swap! Love the idea & theme too :-)

I prefer cute-ish, cartoony, whimsical, zakka styles over the realistic fruit type

I like the realistic please...lemons or blueberries if possible but not a necessity :) Anything will put a smile on my face really.

I like strawberries please

I am going on my first cruise in Sept and would love to have a strawberry make up bag to take along. Just a suggestion. Hint Hint

My kitchen is decorated in cherries but any fruit themed sewing project would be great.

FYI: next swap is up!

love this - but I have to wait because of work commitments

Karine 08/16/2011 #

I prefer whimsical over realistic. Apples, pears, cherries, strawberries, peaches, every kind of fruit is good for me (as long as I don't have to eat it)

DonnaLeeDesigns 08/18/2011 #

My dining room is decorated with Grapes - would love a hot mat or tea cozy

Otherwise any whimsical/funky fruit is fine with me

craftyozgirl 08/18/2011 #

I like apples and pears the best :)
