lip balm coozie stuffieDetails of the Swap:
If you love beautiful, fun, practical things, then this is the swap for you! In this swap, we'll be transforming a stuffie from being just something cute to look at into something more... a stuffie with a function. After learning a bit about your partner, you will be challenged to create a stuffie for him/her that can in some way "assist" your partner.
Some examples could be:
stuffie needle book holders
stuffie bag, purse, coin holder
stuffie pin cushion
The possibilities are endless! You are all super creative people. I really encourage you to chat with your partner once assigned to really get a sense of what that person is like to help you create a functional stuffie that will be enjoyed and appreciated.
To keep it fair for everyone playing, a "smallish" (smallish because we decided tiny might be too tiny for this challenge!) stuffie should be no bigger than about 8 inches in any direction.
Extras are ok too, just make sure you chat with your partner! Please
, no one wants to be flaked upon. If you don't think you will be able to keep up with posting in the thread or creating something awesome for your partner, please reconsider joining. We all want to have a lot of fun!!
If you need to send late or have any other problem, PLEASE PM ME ASAP!!!! We all have busy lives, please don't make mine (or suereal's!) any busier than it needs to be!!
