Details of swap:
In this swap, you will make and send ONE stuffie/plush item to your partner. The theme of the swap is weird or unusual stuffies. While it is ok to work from a pattern, please modify the pattern in some way if possible (ie, if you want to start from the Pointy Kitty pattern, that is fine, but modifying the pattern to make a two-headed kitty or a kitty that turns inside out into a crumhorn would be more in keeping with the theme of the swap). This swap is open to all crafting mediums that result in a 3-dimensional item.

You will suggest several general themes which will inspire your partner to create a unique stuffie.  These themes should be along the lines of "office supplies" or "things that fly" rather than specific requests such as "blue and pink striped marmot with googly eyes".  This swap is focused more on creativity and less on slavish reproduction of a specific idea/creature/character.


If you want to participate, information to send to organizers:

Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval(YES/NO)

Do you have any allergies?
Are there any allergens (pets, smoke) in your home or craft space?
Are there any materials that you prefer not to receive?
What size stuffie would you like to make?
What size stuffie would you like to receive?
What medium would you like to craft in (knitting, sewn, etc)?
Are there any types of stuffies that you would NOT like to receive?

Please list at least three possible themes for crafting your stuffie:

If we get more than 10 swappers, I am going to look for a co-organizer.  If you would be interested, please let me know!
