Okay, question: How small is too small for a piece of fabric? I have many scraps that I was going to use to make hair accessories and such but I've lost the urge... I don't want anyone to think I'm cheating them by giving them my castoffs but some of them are so cute and I'm sure someone would be able to use them! So, what do you think??? How small is too small?

I guess size depends on the person? Like.. I wouldn't mind pretty small pieces, since I do make little sewn things (like hair accessories.. bookmarks.. . and maybe a cute different fabric pocket inside a bag!)

And I'm not collecting anything yet, though I'm excited to! I'm being patient and waiting for my partner, since probably I'd end up with a big pile and it would be all wrong Sad

 I'm actually anxious to get the envelops were sending in! I'm kind of worried I'm not gonna fill it up enough Embarrassed I've never've done one of these swaps, so I'm not sure how much were expected to fill these things up! Has anyone here been in a 'fill a something' swap, any tips on how much is 'enough' or should we really stuff it up until it explodes? I'm assuming we won't be able to fill it with as much as when the US do it, they fill a whole box Cheesy Sorry about all the blabbering, it's defenitily the swap anxiety escaping Lips sealed

Definitely depends on your partner! As long as you discuss with your partner what sizes are okay for eachother its fine, just make sure that if you are sending teeny pieces that it is a fair size "amount" of them! That way its fair if someone say gets a few full size pieces! I hope that makes sense!

Don't worry! Fill as full as you think necessary! As long as you discuss with your partner the things they want I am sure you will be able to fill it pretty full! You will be surprised to see how much will fit in. It probably won't be as crazy amount of stuff as the US boxes but we could try Wink Have fun, and don't worry about how much, just make sure its an amount you would want to receive!

I haven't started collecting yet. I'm waiting till I know what my partner is interested in. Basically for the same reasons as psyche.

I know I'm getting excited too! I'm hoping for a few more to sign up though, to make it an even number so everyone sends to one person! So if you know any crafty Canadians on here let them know!!  Cheesy
