- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES

- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:

I love bright eye-catching floral-patterns!  I thought it would be fun to have a swap and see how many beautiful floral bags we could come up with!  Each swap participant will make a bag that has some type of floral pattern and receive one in return.

It can be a tote bag, messenger bag, clutch, jordy-style purse, hobo... you get the idea.  You can make a bag out of a big, bold floral pattern or use a solid color with floral fabric as an accent.  Just remember to make something along the lines of what your partner would like.  This means that you can't start the bag until you know who you will be making your bag for.  Makes sense, right?

Once sign-ups close you will have 4 weeks to make your bag.  When you ship, you MUST let me and your recipient know.  You MUST also get delivery confirmation and send me and the recipient the confirmation number.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Knit bags are fine!  I'm sure you can come up with some creative way to incorporate flowers... maybe a pin or something.

Oooh, knit flowers are awesome! Especially felted... must do some of that!

I made a knit flower for the one tiny thing swap some time ago, and the pattern in the back of Last Minute Knitted Gifts (I think?) is really fantastic.

If I don't get a few more people to sign up, I might extend the sign-up period for a few more days. 

I thought the floral bag idea was a good one! Smiley

I think it's an awsome idea, I even saw the cutest floral fabric ever at the fabric store. Unfortunately I am in my first swap and sendouts aren't due until 7/2, so I won't be able to get in on this.

Last chance to get in on this swap!  I will close sign-ups at 3:00pm ET today and post partners by early evening.

Come on people, sign-up! Smiley  Floral doesn't mean granny-ish. Smiley  Here are a few floral bags I've made in the past...







Yes, I know I'm such a nerd... but florals are fun! Smiley
