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

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know
