Let’s make some fabulous zippered pouches!  I use them for storing doodads, spare change, make-up, etc.  What do you store in yours?

DETAILS OF SWAP:
For this swap, you will design/sew a fab zippered pouch for your partner and of course, your swap partner will return the favour by crafting a fab zippered pouch…just for you!  
Now, let’s talk about the zippered pouch.  As a general guideline, the dimensions of the zippered pouch should not exceed 8 inches by 6 inches (20.32 cm by 15.24 cm).  I have included two basic questions in the swap questionnaire to get you thinking about what your partner likes in a zippered pouch, but you may wish to ask for more information before you start.  Since the object is to make it awesome, you’re encouraged to embellish, embellish, and yeah, embellish your work.  Beadwork?  Sure.  Patchwork?  Yep.  Painted designs with fabric paint?  Why not!  You get the idea.  Make it unique…make it special!  Please make the pouch to the best of your ability!  
There is no need to stuff any extras in the pouch because all your time will be spent making a fab pouch that is perfect for your partner Cheesy  If you decide to slip a wee extra in the pouch I won’t be mad at you for doing so, but please understand that your partner is not required to reciprocate.
  
Other housekeeping details and what-nots…
1.  I reserve the right to refuse anyone who has a history of multiple instances of poor communication and/or late sending.
2.  You need to make at least one post in this thread (per Craftster swap requirements).  
3.  Check the swap thread regularly. Feel free to talk about what you’re doing with your pouch, post teaser pictures of your work-in-progress, ask for ideas, etc.  Anything that relates to zippered pouches and crafting for your partner is good talk.
4.  Good communication is essential!  If you’re having issues with the swap, or if you’re sending late (for whatever reasons), you must contact the organizer.  Poor communication will be noted in your feedback Sad            


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.
Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

hello spidermom!

i have a good stash of zippered pouches but they're mostly plain (read: boring).  i've been itching to make some extra pretty ones Cheesy  

hmmmmmmmmmm........ .............will have to think on this...a shaped one would be neat but i can only do squares or rectangles, anything else i might have to enlist mom's help

making shaped zippered pouches isn't a requirement for this swap...embellished square or rectangular zippered pouches are fine too!  Cheesy
