2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Craft with a Fat Quarter Swap Gallery (SO 4/18/11) on: April 11, 2011 05:58:02 PM
Today I got my amazing FQ package from sloth003!!! I'm so excited to show you guys! She made some awesome items outta the funnest fabrics!

I literally squealed a little bit when I saw the fabric so I was even more excited when I saw what she made with it!!

First up is a picture of it all packaged!


Then there's this super cute clutch!! (I'm so excited to go out next weekend just so I can match my outfit to this!! Its shape fits my cell phone, small wallet and camera with room for lipgloss and such!!) Then a book cover, to hide the covers of the trashy novels I read! Now I can read them at work with no one knowing whats inside lol


Then this awesome pendant! Again so excited to wear it!! And a little needle book with scissors!


And there's also this awesome little bowl (I've had the pattern bookmarked for a while so now I'm excited to have one!) And my very first mug rug!! I'm taking this to work so I can mark my spot on the counter!


Then there's this little cozy for my cell phone but she sent it wrapped around a box of smarties! I'm tempted to keep it as my chocolate bar cozy.... I'm a chocoholic Grin


And last but definitely not least.... my Fat quarters!! The top yellow one is the one she got from Australia! And the other is from Fabricland.... which I have seen there before and have been looking for a reason to buy it.... now I have it!!


Thanks you so much again sloth!!! You did a wonderful job! I hope you like your goodies when you get them!!!

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Magic Yarn ball of Doom- (A spinners MYB!) on: April 05, 2011 03:55:54 PM
SO you've seen the Magic Yarn ball swaps.... and there even was a Magic ROVING ball swap once... now its our turn!

The idea of the swap is that you spin up some yarn for your partner then wrap it up just like a normal MYB but here's the catch! Everything in the ball is spinning related. SO dyes, rovings, little bits of unusual fibres (firestar, silks, angelina etc), spindles, curly locks, labels, even threads, beads and other little things you can use to spin or dye with! The possibilities are endless!

All levels of spinners would be welcome, and there will even be a question of who you would prefer to be paired with in case you are new and want to swap with someone else who is new to spinning!

Now the only questions are how much yarn should be swapped (I was thinking 2-4 oz.?) and who wants in on the fun!

I can organize as soon as there's enough interest and everyone is ready!

A2JC4life I don't even have that left! But what an awesome teaser..... really makes me start wondering what kinda pattern is on the fabric! If I was your partner I'd be incredibly curious!

I just finished my "big" item! Turned out Exactly as I had planned!!!! Only 3 more things to sew with the sewing machine then I gotta stuff, embroider and handsew my little heart out!!

It did feel a little funny though making so many things out of the same 2 pieces of fabric! Really gets your brain going for placement to make things look a little different!

i agree 100%.  thats why at least two of my items are reversible.  but it is still pretty matchy matchy matchy. Smiley

Ya I tried to twist and turn the pattern as much as possible to change it up a bit! SO I have 7 things made that are under and inch in size Grin I love my glue gun lol Then 3 things sewn up just one needs a string.... and I think as long as the one item works the way I want it to I will literally have ZERO scraps leftover... Who's an over-achiever.... this girl right here hehehe

All of my 2 FQ's are officially cut out! I cannot believe the amount of things I got out of them! A couple things are super tiny so hopefully my fingers and the glue gun get along really well tomorrow when I spend the day sewing and gluing everything all together! I'm so excited to see all the items made!!
