I love swaps like this because it makes you think outside of your own personal box to create something fabulous! And I really like what is on my partners list. I think this will be an amazing swap!
Actually I feel the same way! At first I was scared to death about my partner's themes, I thought I knew nothing about them, but once i got to stalk her and talk to her, I discovered that in many ways, my partner's likes are very similar to my likes! Then I got overexcited!
I haven't started crafting, I'm still in the process of gathering material (and my overlock broke down!) so I think I will have to work with my regular sewing machine, at least in a part of the swap.
I came up with a cool idea (at least I hope it turns out as cool as I picture it) but I was afraid the materials would take the costs to the sky! I even described it to my partner as a HUGE item. Somehow I found a way to make it without spending that much but keeping it to a good quality. So I hope this one works out, it's the item I'm most excited about!
Later today I will go to the craft store to buy materials for the other projects, I cannot start with the huge until I get the materials, and those will take a bit to arrive. I will start with some smalls then.
