The warm weather is here (in the U.S. anyway)...let's all get busy and sew something summery!

If you need an idea or inspiration, look at this big list of summer sewing tutorials at Everything Etsy.   But just about anything can be "summery" if it's made with the right fabric!  Here are some ideas:

  • soda can cozy
  • notebook cover
  • tote bag
  • ice pop cozies
  • headband
  • coasters
  • mug rug
  • placemats
  • napkins
  • any kind of organizer
  • sunglasses case
  • beach bag
  • wrap skirt
  • picnic cloth/blanket
  • fabric bracelet or cuff
  • bucket hat
  • garden apron
  • table topper/runner
  • lightweight scarf
  • pillow
  • fabric basket

Details of swap:
--You will craft 2 points-worth of summery things, keeping your partners preferences in mind. That's two small items, or one larger item.  Extras are allowed, but let your partner know if you plan on spoiling her!  Use ideas from the list above, or come up with your own.
--You will have three full weeks to craft and send, from June 7th to June 28th.
-- Please post in this thread (or the gallery thread) at least once a week so we know you are still crafting with us.

*PLEASE READ THIS!*
- 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.
- Good communication is very important. Please stay in touch by posting weekly in the swap thread.
- PM both organizers and your partner when you send and when you receive.
- Please post photos of the package you receive in the gallery, and take pictures of what you make before you send it.
- HAVE FUN!

I'm sorry you won't be crafting with us, but you have a good excuse!  Good luck with the pillow covers, they are really great, they should sell well.
