Here’s a swap for the busy crafter who loves fabric and sewing: a fabric jewelry swap!


Susanab came up with this great idea: you will swap one piece of handcrafted fabric jewelry with one partner, so it is completely do-able even with winter holidays approaching.  Check out this link for tutorials and ideas for lots of different things you could make:  I’ve also included a tutorial on my blog showing how to make a  fabric bracelet.  I’m sure you can find many other ideas online; share them with us in the thread!

Here are the types of things you can make:
--brooch/pin
--bracelet/cuff
--necklace
--ring
--earrings
--hair ornament (including headband)

Details of swap:
--You will craft one piece of fabric jewelry, using your partner’s questionnaire as a guide to make something she will love.
--You will have a 2½ week crafting time, from 11/26/11 to 12/15/11.
--You have creative freedom to use any fabric, any embellishment, any technique you want, as long as what you craft is jewelry, and made primarily of fabric.
-- You will need to post in this thread at least once a week so we know you are still crafting with us.

*PLEASE READ!*
- No one like to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, don't sign up.
- You must get delivery confirmation if sending within the U.S., or a mailing receipt if sending elsewhere.
- If you must send late, let the organizers and your partner know ASAP.
- Please post photos of the package you receive in the gallery.

My smart co-organizer, susanab, just pointed out THIS LINK; it is a guide to necklace lengths, which anyone requesting or making a necklace might find very helpful.  It is aimed at people making beaded necklaces, but it could apply to certain fabric necklaces too.
