Details of swap:
This swap is open to anyone who owns and loves any kind of eReader (Kindle, Nook, Sony, etc) or tablet (iPad, Xoom, etc). You will be crafting one case, cover, or cosy (whatever you want to call it!) for your partner's device, along with two extra items. I suggest the extra items be themed around your partner's favorite book/character, but you and your partner may also choose to swap general reading-related items.

The case will qualify as one large item, and the two extras should each be small items. Here are the general guidelines for judging item size:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less


SOME REMINDERS:
~Please take photos of your items before you send. Remember that you must get a DC# when sending, and PM this number to the organizer and your partner upon sending.
~Don't forget to PM the organizer and your partner upon receiving. Take some good pictures of what you received and post them to the gallery as soon as you can.
~Please try to post in the thread at least once a week. This is just to encourage good communication between all members of the swap.

Tempting.  I would love a nice sewn cover for my Nook.  I'll have to keep my eye on this.

Just letting everyone know, I added a question about wists and blogs and such to the questionnaire! If you've already sent yours in, don't worry, just make sure to share those links with your partner later! Cheesy
