One Tiny Embroidered Thing Swap OTET
Sign-ups May 26 to June 5  with Partners given on June 7
Send Out Deadline is July 12

Swap Information:
The idea is to make one tiny hand-embroidered craft item. It should be physically small and should be something that you can craft with a high level of skill. Even if it is a fairly simple/easy item for you to make, please embellish so that it best represents your skill. (For example, if you wish to make a coin purse, you could embroider, add beading, or take other steps to make it a really special piece.)
You will receive only one partner.
You may only send that partner ONE tiny Embroidered craft - no extras as part of this swap.
All items must be 4"x4" or smaller, or fold and nicely fit a 4x4 space.
  Here is  a link to the discussion thread thread
goldfishpollywog and belladune are your organizers.  We will be matching partners as quickly as possible, to the best of our abilities.
To Keep this Swap Happy and free of Flakes, please post in this thread or PM one of the organizers at least every two weeks.  Just pop in to let us know how your craft is coming, or comment on something said in the thread.   If you are going to be without internet access for a while, just post and let us know.  That way we won't worry about you.
I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of incomplete packages, very late sending, ill-communication, lack of DC #'s, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap!


Here are a few projects that I have found on Craftster that should provide inspiration

simple dolls embroidered with favorites
Embroidered Greeting Cards
Cup Cozy
Mini pillows
Small pouch or sachet
Embroidered Badges or Patches
Embroidered Mirror Backs
Embroidered Pouch, would have to use hand embroidery but still.
Set of Buttons
Small Needlbooks

Going to fill in the questionnaire soon!! Hope I get paired with someone from the UK as then it will be even cheaper postage Smiley Now I've just got to decide my skill level. Hmm beginner or intermediate as I do quite a few pieces but I've never really bothered to learn new stitches just backstitch. Oh no decisions! Tongue

Alright, I'm just going to do it. Even if I don't get moved and settled until july, there's still like 12 days to do it after that. I'll send in my app after work.
