Details of swap:  Miss the good 'ol days of gaming?  I know there have been video game swaps in the past, but what's better than the old-school gaming systems?  Well, it's time to bring back the geezers of the video game world.  Anything pre-Playstation/N64/X-Box is game (nintendo, SNES, famicom, sega, atari, etc).  The pixellated characters make it pretty easy to use in almost any craft especially the needle-related variety.  Pacman, Mrs. Pacman, Q-bert, Mario Bros, Kirby, Sonic the Hedgehog, Pong, Zelda, Tetris, Skate or Die, Double Dragon, Kung-fu, you name it! 

You'll have over a month to craft: 1 large, 2 medium, and 1 small item.  This is a general minimum.  You can talk w/ your partner to determine if you'd like to craft more/less.  Make sure you get delivery confirmation!  Let me and your partner know when you have sent and received.


Here are some ideas:
(I tried to find a good variety, but the majority were Nintendo.  Lemme know if you find any more I should add.  Also, there is a ton of stuff on Etsy if you need more inspiration.)
