Oh, ouch! I love the project, though. They both look really nice! My personal favorite is the top one (probably because I wear that style all the time) but the fabric maxi one is so fun. Where did you find the knit print?

The papers are amazing! And I agree with RougeRaven: the fabrics really do lend to the vintage feel.
1495  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Crafted Cushion Cover Swap (SU Closed, SO Mar12) on: February 18, 2012 10:32:41 AM
I sent yesterday. Cue swap anxiety.

And now, thanks to you guys, I really want to take a trip to Ikea and I have an excuse: I love their cheap pillow forms.

Cute, cute cute! Love them all.
1497  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: smoke allergies on: February 18, 2012 09:49:52 AM
... but couldn't find any verified information confirming it as an actual allergen other than the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America saying it can exacerbate Asthma and other allergies, which seemed kind of obvious anyway.

For example if I had a craft partner who said they were allergic to smoke, I would think "Oh no! What can I do to make sure I don't inadvertantly kill them?  Shocked" And I would then begin furiously Googling my little fingers to death about smoke allergies. However, having already been in this situation I know that all my Googling would turn up is that there is no scientific evidence to confirm that smoke is an allergen so I'd just think to myself, "Oh... So I guess they just don't like smoke. Fair enough."...

I'd just like point out that asthma can be just as deadly as allergies. I have asthma and I put the no smoke request on my swap questionnaires because I can't breathe around it. And, as others have pointed out, other conditions affected by smoke can be debilitating and painful.

I don't expect swappers to give an in-depth analysis of all allergens and potential triggers that could come in contact with swap items, especially since some things that can set off an attack aren't things people normally think to list (like artificial scents). I know I wouldn't if I didn't have to be careful. When I organize I ask for clarification if needed (Is woodsmoke okay? Are the cats in the craft room?) and have never had my head bitten off. I appreciate it when organizers ask me questions if they need to as well.

Communication is important on both sides, but there is a place to draw the line. (And I think just about everyone with an allergy or asthma or migraines, etc. has met people who don't take it seriously, even after explaining and sometimes even after them witnessing an attack. Or maybe it's a regional thing? )
