Hey everyone,
I like the plastic storage bag thingy.  And those necklaces are georgus.  I was thinking of doing Coffee/Tea cozy you know like when you get a cup of coffee or tea at the gas station and you get those card board rings to put on it so you don't burn you hands. 

Any one interested?

Yes, I like the coffee cozy idea.  I was just looking at those.
And, yes, it's summer, but I'd love fingerless mitts...or knitted headbands as another idea.

This sounds like such a cool swap but it's different to most of the swaps I sign up for which are relatively stress free.  Making five things is a lot and my biggest fear would be that nobody would want what I crafted.  The only things I can think of are fingerless mitts (wrong time of year!) and tote bags but as I have a pathetic fabric stash I'd be spending a fortune on fabric.  I suppose it's something to bear in mind for the future though.

Honestly, Ive always found this swap to be WAY less stressful than other swaps - you can make your stuff as soon as you decide what to make and theres no catering to one persons tastes or finding out your partner is wanting something you have NO skills with, etc.  I mean, I love normal swaps, but thats why this one is perfect for me when Im controlling stress - I can start crafting now, theyre supposed to be pretty small/medium items, and Ill be long-done by the time we get partners and then just make one quick post office trip and in return get lots of super-cool stuff!

I think so too ^^
You can just start and don't worry about specific things. I like it ^^
I have been making some clips during my break (have to decorate them later)
If I am finished I'll post a picture Wink

Just chiming in with the less stress then normal swaps agreement! No difficulty in finding items, I can go from stash if I need to, and everyone knows what they are getting before it arrives!

Unfortunately, I'm sitting this one out. Multiple partner shipping is out of my budget for the moment. But as usual, I'm here to stalk!

oooh Crochet hook pouches would be nice ! I only have 4 but I keep loosing them Cheesy

oh btw, I found an example of the hairclips I intend to do (other designs as well, but just so you get the picture)

I thought about: cupcake - bow - butterfly - flowers - dots ? (or maybe 10 but then you have to give me some ideas for themes Cheesy)
2 or 3 per person (or isn't that enough?)
I have many felt colours(well let's say more then red/white and pink) so maybe I'll do requests in stead of you choosing... i dunno

Riechan asked this question and I am looking for opinions because I don't want to be the only one answering this.  Do you think 2 clips are enough?

And for other people, please feel free to post your swap ideas and see what other people think.  We would love to have more people in the swap. Smiley

I think 3-4 hair clips is better. A set of 2 clips normally sells for around $4-5 and aren't we aiming for between 7-10 dollars for this swap?

I am thinking about doing a reusable sandwich wrap. I have to make up a prototype first to see how hard they are to make and how much fabric they use.

 i think 1 -2 pair sets is fine or 1 set  and a barette is that what you mean bysprings out. depends on how much time the clips take. if they are just glueing stuff on then 2 sets is better but if you are making the item to glue on that takes time too.
hairpins are cute with things. i think in other rounds early on i got a set of 3 pairs of decorated hairpins, either beaded or glued on things like buttons or embroidery bits. they would post a lot flatter too
how are you posting so they dont break? a cdmailer would work well if you can get them cheap at your office supply store or if y ou could buy one and make copies by hand out of recycled cardboard.
i am not sure what to make.
i just worked out how to make crowns lol so many projects on the go here.
do many people have girls who would like a crown?

I was thinking 3 or 4 on the hair clips as well.  Like Cyndiq said, maybe a pair plus a barrette or 2 pair.
