I know there are tons of cat and/or dog lovers on Craftster, so susanab and I want to organize a swap for anyone who loves either (or both) of the two most popular household pets!  We will be crafting for the swapper, not the pet, so you don't have to own a cat or dog to participate (but you would be free to make a little something "extra" for Fido or Snowball if you wish!)

We're thinking of a 3-point swap:  a small and a medium; or one large, or three smalls.  Any kind of crafting that your partner likes would work for this, so you could break out your paintbrush and do a painting of a cat; or rev up the sewing machine and make a purse out of dog fabric; or pull out the clay and sculpt your partner's pet--whatever you think your partner will like, based on her questionnaire and her pinterest, wists, etc.

Timeframe:  we would like to start sign-ups this week, probably on Tues. March 27th, and announce partners a week later on Tuesday, April 3rd.  Since Easter and spring break (for some) will happen during April, we are thinking of a nice long 4 week crafting time, with send-outs on May 1st.

We welcome your input, suggestions, questions, or enthusiasm below!

This sounds like a fantastic swap, Leslie and Susan!  I probably won't join as I have no pets at all, and I kind of need a break here to finish up the one swap I'm in now.

But, I can think of lots of ideas for this (And I'm pretty sure I have some fabrics that would work too!) - I will be stalking your thread to see the sign ups, and then the gallery to see the wonderful things partners come up with for each other - Cool swap idea - I don't think I've seen one like it on Craftster before!!

You two are so clever and original!!  Can't believe I'm going to sit out a LHH and SAB swap!  You all have fun!!   Smiley

Sounds good to me. I was looking for another swap to participate in. I have both dog and cats so that's easy. I think I have some fabric too in my stash but it's always fun to look for more fabric. lol. Keep me posted.

I was going through the "recent with pics" posts and thought I saw a familiar cat?!!(what a honour, Leslie) Hooray another Susan-Leslie idea for a swap!!

I don't own a cat nor do I own a dog, but this sounds good anyway. I'm always thinking sew-related so: a nice cat pincushion, a cat pouch - especially this one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/17310587/a-cat-eating-a-fish-pouch or fabric with cats and dogs on like that bag in the picture... I like it!

Oh or a bag in the shape of a dog, hahaha those are so funny! A cat or dog plush would be appreciated by my kids, finger puppets of different dogs and cats, dog or cat coaster/mug rug, towels with dogs/cats,....

Okay, you get my point! Hhahaha, I always get so excited!! I don't have any fabric with dogs or cats, but that shouldn't stop me from signing in  Grin

Yes, Wendie, I thought you would see your kitty pincushion!  I love it, and it's just the kind of thing that would be perfect for this swap...and thanks for the ideas you suggested.  Dog or cat fabric is not necessary, if you can do a little embroidery or applique, you can add a pet to anything!

i'm a team cat person at home but i greet almost every pup i see Cheesy
and in nyc there are some dogwalkers that have a LOT of dogs going at once--so funny.
there's so much great fabric out there with both/either. a little cat themed wristlet would be nice Cheesy

When we take all of our pups out at once, people always assume we are dog walkers Smiley. We tell them, 'no, we're just crazy!"

I know I'd love a doggy themed Kindle cover! Or maybe a serving tray painted with a puppy! Or a doxie table runner could be cute!! Or maybe a cushion for the couch in doggie fabrics! Or an embroidery hoop with a great dane pic! Idea overload!!

Oh "LimeRiot" That all sounds great!! I would like some of those things! Wink  Also maybe a painted picture of your favorite pet or a drawing, a kitty coin purse or dogie one. Maybe a small bag for those walks with the puppies, for essentials!! Cheesy  A cell phone cover or camera cover. A stuffie for sure, keyring, a photo album cover, the list can go on & on!! Grin
