Craftster Swap Gallery Highlights
|Share the love...||
|One of my favorite things about Craftster is participating in craft swaps. Through swapping, I’ve met so many great people and have received so many wonderful handmade treasures from all over the world. Even though there’s no way I can participate in every swap, I still enjoy looking through the swap gallery to see what sort of swaps are being held, and what sort of great things are being made and exchanged. Here are some current swap galleries from some of the swaps I’ve been keeping an eye on.
I’ve been amazed by every single badge sent in the Felt Badge Swap and posted in their gallery. In this swap, organized by LimeRiot, members send their partners small felt badges tailored to their partner’s themes. This badge, by Leslieshappyheart, represents her partner’s love of trees, the color orange, and poppies. All of the badges that have been posted so far are so creative and well done. Take a look! HINT: If you’d like to quickly view the photos, don’t forget to use the “Show Images Only” button at the top right corner of the thread. This way, only the photos will be displayed, and you won’t have to read through all the comments.
|Do you have a taste for international goodies? Members of the International Snack Swap, hosted by scarlet_nights, have been sending each other treats from their home country, plus some small crafted items. Look at all the loot scarlet_nights sent her partner. Mmm, tasty!|
|Oodelally is currently hosting the second round of the Make My Collectable Swap. In this swap, each person sent something for their partners to add to their collection. I love this adorable fox scarf that legatostroke made for her partner!|
|Here’s a fun one! teachart hosted a One Smallish Stuffie With A Function swap, where small stuffies were transformed from being just something cute to look at into something more… a stuffie with a function. That’s no ordinary monster by suereal; it doubles as a needle book! This gallery is full of fun and functional tiny friends.|
|The Ongoing Wish Swap has been going on forever. It’s currently in Round 81. babalina58 has been organizing this swap since its 61st round. Whew! In this swap, which runs in a chain fashion, a participant posts a wishlist. When someone chooses something to make off that list, they, in turn, post their list of crafts they’d like to receive. These adorable knit dolls were made by spikefan.|
Take a look at the swap galleries. You’ll find all sorts of wonderful craft ideas and inspiration; there are all kinds of swaps for all kinds of interests. If you haven’t tried swapping, what are you waiting for? Read through the Swap Info Guide and see if swapping is for you. If you are a swapper already, what are some of your favorite swaps? If you’re like me, it will be hard to name a favorite.
