1  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap R8-SU: CLOSED; SO: April 3, 2017 on: March 18, 2017 04:46:37 PM
My "official" patch is done but I'm having trouble deciding on a back/frame fabric. Must get on with it so it'll get done. And the "unofficial" patch is sitting waiting patiently to get put together. Stop looking at me like that! Angry

I have a couple of ideas, and have been sorting through boxes of STUFF for a few days, but all I seem to be doing is filling up a bin, dumping it into a larger bin, adding more stuff til it's full, and so on. It's time I actually DID something with some of this; I think I just need to start attaching things to other things and see what happens.

The line between "trading" and "giving away" is a fine one, and as long as you aren't charging money for your cards, I think you're entirely on the ATC side of it. And these are brilliant, which tips the balance.

I've got the patch for my unofficial partner laid out, and last night I tried out a vague idea for my proper partner that I really, really like. So I'm looking forward to getting back to it to see where it goes.

I tend to do embroidery and embellishment on the front fabric, then cut and a piece of batting to the size of the finished patch. Then I layer it on to the backing fabric, cut about 1 cm larger on each side and stitch through to quilt it. The back fabric then gets folded to the front and stitched over to make the frame. Patches take me from an hour to six hours to do.

I also have a small collection of large belt buckles (which I've bought only because I like them, but never actually wear) and this is a brilliant idea to display them. So glad you shared it with us all!

I'm glad everyone likes the tin. I'm a bit disappointed with it, but only because it doesn't live up to my original idea. I was going to make a mechanical diorama inside the tin: when you turned a crank, three little ships bobbed up and down on churning waves. Unfortunately, when I finally got past little napkin sketches and mocked up the mechanism with cardboard and sticks, I discovered that it would've needed to be about 2 times taller to work. Sad So the ship wind vane was a runner-up idea.

For some reason, I'm seeing all Camelama's photos upside-down. It may be just me, as I can no longer see SonjaBoo's photos at all, and they were certainly there this morning.

I'm glad you liked it - I hoped my muddle of ship motifs would pass muster. I have no idea what the top part of roof is - I think it might be half of a pomander, but that's little more than a guess. I've been saving it for something good, and this was it.

A great place to store keys and other precious objects.

I ended losing electricity the morning of the 8th and just got it back on this evening!

Did you get that crazy wind storm on Wednesday, MK? It was alarming here in southern Ontario. Trucks blown over, lots of power outages (including a power pole toppled just a few blocks away, but amazingly we kept our power) and just walking on the street was difficult when a gust hit.

My current method for swaps is to print out my partner's questionnaire (with the send-out date written in big letters at the top) and I use that to make notes on as I'm stalking Pinterest, past swaps, etc. I list favourite colours, themes, possible ideas, etc. I find I forget this stuff quite quickly, and I'm always amazed to find when I'm done that I'd written down many of the things I ended up doing although I'd forgotten where I got the idea from. So I guess the ideas weren't forgotten, just absorbed.

Have I mentioned recently how constantly amazed I am by my fellow Craftsters' creativity? Well, I am. All the time. Like right now. Shocked

A bee tea party? How stupendous, brilliant and stupendously brilliant is THAT??! I love every single thing about this tea tin, inside and out. And then there's the EXTRAS!  Roll Eyes

And you did all this while you were so sick that you could barely lift your head off the pillow? Wow. If ever a swap package was worth the wait it's this one!
