Details of swap:

Imagine resting against a pillow. Now imagine resting against a pillow covered in an awesome pillow cover! No comparison, right?

In this swap you'll send your partner either 2 couch pillow-sized covers (20"x20" or less) or 1 large pillow cover (more than 20" square). The covers can be sewn, crocheted, etc. Since we won't be sending the pillows themselves, shipping will be a lot cheaper.

You can choose to have 1 or 2 partners. 1st time swappers will be limited to 1 partner.

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

Hmmmm... I really want to do this one, but the timeline isn't great for me.  I leave for vacation 7/6 and don't return until 7/24.  My mail delivery will restart on 7/25, so pictures would be delayed.  Would that be okay if I make sure I send out before I leave?

Okay, I'm thinking about this... I get out of school on the 24th, so I'd have time to craft... but I'm on a "no craft purchases" budget right now. I'll have to see what I have on hand that could be turned into pillow awesomeness...

I definitely want to start a collection of funky throw pillows for the sofa that I will be getting. It's an antique that was left behind in the house my friend bought. It's pink (which is not my favorite color), but it is just the right size. So, I figured that I could make a bunch of random pillows to bring it in to the 21st century.

So, I'm a maybe!

Supplies will be investigated soon...

This sounds fun - and I've been making lots of pillow covers lately. Would anyone be interested in receiving felt pillow covers something like these with different characters? (Sorry - this is the best pic I have access to at work!)

I'm definitely considering this, would I be allowed to send a pillow too, if of course it fit in with my partners requirements I've found an awesome circular pattern I'd love to try, but I can do square crochet too if needed  Cheesy I've got so much yarn in my stash that I need to use up to make room for new stuff it's unreal.
