I did a swap last year that we had a food theme the one I participated in was fruit and I crafted 6 pineapples and sent them to the people in my group and in return I got 6 different types of play food to build for a play kitchen. I am wondering if any one would be interested in doing another swap like this and if so what theme would you want to do?!

Depending on when it is...and depending on whether it's felt only, I might be in.

I don't sew much with felt but I do both knit and crochet and there are a ton of cute food patterns out there.

Would it be felt only?

I like to make felt foods, but I only make tiny ones. Is that okay?

oh no it can be of any type of craft, i can't do the felt food but i can knit and crochet as well, and interrobam that is fine maybe you could make 2 or 3 of your item if you do feel that it is rather small, but i know i got a slice of watermelon last swap and it seemed small in size but the work that went into you could tell took time.

It's my first message on the board. English isn't my mother tongue, so I hope people understand me.

I was looking in the internet for examples of felt food, because I've made some things of felt for my cousin for the holidays.

And then I saw something about a swap..

I maybe interested of joining the swap. Is it a problem that I live in Europe?

What will be the rules of this swap? I've read the rules of a normal swap. But will there be extra rules?

If somebody what's to see photo's of things I've made must they be showed here?

i can surely make this an international swap, but if i do i may have to take at least 5 ppl that would want to send internationally so if that is the case i may make the swap 10-15 participants in groups of 5 and i can keep the swap open til all spots are filled and if more ppl want to join i would gladly make it up to 25.

there really won't be too many rules just make 4 of the same food of the theme we decide to send to the other people for the group, in the questionaire i will have a question asking if you wouldn't mind sending internationally and if i can get at least 5 to say yes i can put them in a group.

if you would like to post pictures in here we would all love to see your work!
anyone is welcome to share with us your work!

I'd be interested in participating.
Have a two year old niece that loves to "cook" in her kitchen.  So being the cool aunt that I am, I've been trying my hand at felt food.  Mostly things that she likes to eat - lots of fruits and veggies. 
Even without a specific theme, this could be a lot of fun!  Smiley

I was in a few of these last year and the beginning of this year: desserts, dinner, breakfast, holiday cookies.  Had so much fun and have been waiting for another one.  I missed the sandwich, veggie and fruit swaps in this style so any one of those would be my vote.

I just entered my first swap so I wouldn't be able to do this one until I've successfully finished that one in January. Sad I love making felt food! Oh well...

I'd be interested if this was after the holidays. I've made some felt food for my 2 year old and he loves to play with it. I've made pizza, cookies, bacon and eggs and would love to add some healthier choices to his collection!

I would totally want to join this swap, I've just got a dolls house and am slowly crafting little bits and bobs for it. I'd love teeeeeeeeny tiny foods for my kitchen. After the holiday season would be good for me, xmas is just too busy!

I'd be interested in doing a personal swap with anyone who wants to do a fabric-wool swap. I have lots of wool and yarns!

After the holidays, maybe January, would be much better.  Smiley  Things are hectic right now but this would be a fun project to look forward to!

I clicked on this thread because I thought the picture was tiny felt food. 
I have never done a swap, but I make small felt food a lot.  Here's a http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=104980&id=701634405&l=e945755876 to some pics, I can't remember how to download them and then post blah, blah.
Anyway, I'll read up on the rules and stuff, but would be interested in joining this swap if it's OK to make small stuff too.

aloha!

well i have 2 that can do tiny food, if there is maybe 3 more i can do a group for tiny food, or maybe if you 2 would like to just swap with one another and make a small group of different things....

and everyone else could make full size children play food...how does everyone feel if i opened the sign ups for all of december and do partners the first of the year and we can craft the first of the year too?

if you were interested in this swap they have started sign ups for one they end 1/3 so you have a little more time to sign up if you wanted to join.
