Details of swap:
OTT (One Tiny Thing) swaps are based on the idea that you'll be crafting, literally, one tiny item. Tiny refers to the actual size of the item but even though it's small, it should be an item that is crafted with a high level of skill. If it's a simple/easy item for you to craft, try to embellish or perfect it to best represent your skills.
In this swap, participants will have one partner. Each partner will make and send out one tiny thing (see below for ideas on what constitutes as a tiny item) based on your five themes. For example, if one of your themes is orange, your partner could make fancy orange earrings or a tiny orange ornament. The tiny thing should fit within four square inches. If you need a couple inches wiggle room, that is okay. This is a NO-EXTRAs swap. You can only send the item you craft and NOTHING else. If you do send extras, it will be noted in your feedback. This swap is intended to be low-stress.
After you have been approved, you are welcome to post your five themes in this thread. If you see someone's theme list and would like to craft for them, please feel free to PM me and let me know. I cannot guarantee that you will be partnered with that person BUT I will absolutely take it into consideration during the pairing up.
To celebrate October, the OVERALL theme of this swap will be the celebrations in October [Halloween, Samhain, Day of the Dead (even though it is Nov 2nd), Oktoberfest, Autumn in general, etc.]! Your five themes should be related to these.
Communication is important. Failure to communicate will be reflected in your feedback.
It is your responsibility to:
-PM your partner and the organizer as soon as you have sent
-PM your partner and the organizer as soon as you have received
-post in this thread at least once
-take a photo of your item before you send (so you can post in the gallery if your partner can't)
Is your item tiny?
4" tall stuffie = tiny
14" tall stuffie = Not tiny
small change purse = tiny
clutch purse = Not tiny
Bottom line: 4"x4" dimensions
If the item "naturally" comes in a pair or a set (ie: earrings or stitch markers), that is okay.
If you aren't sure if your idea is considered "tiny", please ask!
