 Do you love making Teesha Moore-style patches? Have you always admired them but haven't yet caught the TM bug? Well, this could be the swap for you!

In this round of the TM Patch Swap, you will be crafting for 1 or 2 partners (first time swappers will be limited to 1 partner) and from 1-3 patches (you and your partner should agree on the exact number).

Also, you will have the option of exchanging a TM Patch Supply kit with your partner (contents of kit may include: floss, fabric, embellishments {buttons, beads, ribbons, charms, etc}, poly-fil, etc.).

Let's keep this swap simple and limit it to the sending of patches and kits (if you love sending extra things, consider adding those in to a kit  ).

There are lots of inspirational patches from previous swaps, so check out some of the galleries here:

My turn, my turn!  I just received from my awesome partner sheridanla, she made me all kinds of giddy.....

My name is Christy and she crafted the first letter (L) of my last name to even it out

C is for Christy!  A super cute button "C" with an easel. So cute!

H is for hoops!  Yes, yes I love me some hoops!

R is for relaxing eye pillow!  It is filled with flax seed and can be warmed or cooled. I've been wanting one of these.  I'm sure we will be fighting over this in my house.  And the fabric is so pretty!

I is for invisible pattern holders lol!  I've really been wanting some of these for awhile so I freaked a bit.  You did awesome on the vinyl Sheridan!  It is a tricky beast to work with Wink

S is for a sewing organizer!  Ohhhh I was hopping all over the kitchen when I saw this, I'm a lucky gal!  This is so cool I can't stand it. Absolutely perfect!

T is for thread!  If you sew or embroider then your heart skipped a lil beat just now Smiley

Y is for your first initial goodies!  Love the black and white and I totally needed some swaggy (as my daughter calls them) tissues with all the allergies hitting me in the last few days

L is for (I had my fingers crossed hard) Llamas!!  Yeeee!  The lil clay llama cracks me up, so adorable and I love that you tried clay modeling just to make him.   And the stitched llama is one of my favs for sure, you did awesome!  I loooove them both!

Thank you so much for such a wonderful box of treats!

Yeeeee!  I got my patches from our awesome organizer craftADDchick and they are just as awesome as I expected

First is from Fantastic Mr Fox...she actually bought the movie to do her research lol.  I looooove that she made the "cuss" in graffitti-style, it's perfect!  The painting on it it awesome

Next, she made me a patch from Reno 911, a show that KILLS me, so this made me laugh pretty hard.  She made the background from khaki pants  like their uniforms! 

The details you used in these patches are awesome, totally worth the wait!!
Thanks so much craftADDchick!

** as a lil side-note, I will be setting up the next patch round and it will be my first time hosting (so be gentle lol).  I'm really excited to finally jump into hosting, but I have a bit more research to do and a vacation to get through, so I will be posting more info about this in the discussion board in the next few weeks Smiley

✂️ Christy's Crafties ✂️


Hey! My name is Christy and I live in Maryland with my husband, daughter, and 2 small dogs.  I loooove sewing, so I will mostly have sewing crafts and supplies in my grave. Please message me any questions or requests.


Reversible microwave bowl holders -- 2pts per set  
** Claim as bowl holders <red lollies, leaves, and multi circles> **
These bowl holders are made with 100% cotton fabric, thread, and double layer batting...so they are safe to use in the microwave. They are perfect for protecting your hands from getting burned on hot bowls!

Ticker Tape zip pouch 7.5" x 7" -- 1 point
lined with red fabric

Other side

Dr Who Weeping Angel -- 1 point
Comes in a 5x7 frame.  I made this with 3 colored layers of Canson paper.

7"x7" Paper-Pieced Giant Squid -- 1 point
I had planned to make the squid into a pouch, but couldn't get the size right, so instead, I backed it with a piece of felt and a cotton backing...it could be a mug rug, wall hanging, or whatever your lil heart desires Smiley

Set of Apple Potholders -- 1 point
These are made with a layer of batting and a layer of Insulbrite (so don't put them in the microwave!)


Medium Flat Rate Box of Fabric Scraps + choose 1 fabric from list below! -- 2 points
Uneven cuts, random sizes, mostly cottons, but there are like 4-5 non-cotton fabrics (on right side: denim, silkyish blue, and heavier mustard and paris fabrics).

NOTE for fabric below: Some fabrics have uneven cuts, so these measurements are taken using the smallest width and length...so you may end up with a bit more

*** 1 point each, or 3 fabrics for 2 points ***

Whimsical cotton fabrics -- each 45" x 37"  
** Claim as "chicks, watermelon, and/or bunnies" **

Amelie's Attic fabric -- each 44"x38"  
** Claim as "big flower, circles, and/or small flower>" **

Pink cotton fabrics
** Claim as " <descriptive name below>" **
Flower 44"x36"
Pink doodles 45"x62" (this piece is cut on a few ends, uneven, so it was hard to measure)
Multi squiggles 44"x36"
Pink with dots 42"x26"
Colored rocks 36"x22"

Suzie Q the Curious Cow tote bag panel -- 1 pt
 Cut out the pile of flesh pieces and sew it up Smiley. I tried to show the directions a bit, but message me if you have any questions.

I just got some awesome fandom patches from my partner milkeway. 

First, my favorite, I'm still squealing....the luggage from Discworld. Ohhh, look at those bitty cutie lil teefs!  She outlined him free-motion, I love having free motion embroidery for myself now woop woop!

Next up is my very own Firefly in a jar, this one won't die on me

And finally, a Dalek head....cracked me up!

I love them all, thanks so much milkeway!
