Another cup of tea ?

I am new here and brimming with ideas that i cant wait to start swapping. I need to be here for a month first so I have to wait, which is very painful, but I would love someone to start 2 of these swaps as I wont be able to start them I only can participate in my first 2 apparently.hmm

Ideas:
* Quilted little pouch Teesha moore style little money pouch, or whatever else you want to use it for.
Envelope type closure on the top. Can be either made from lots of little patches or one big patch.
* Fabric journal page- free style sewing,collage style journal page sewn with fabrics. You can embroider, cross stitch pieces, add beads, charms, free style stitching, patchwork etc. Hopefully with many rounds so people end up with an entire fabric book. each double page will be by another artist and at the end you sew all the pages together in the middle to make the book.
* Little Houses - Cute little hanging ornament houses to sew from pretty fabrics. sent unstuffed to save on international shipping. pattern here - http://sewistry.com/2013/11/free-sewing-pattern-home-holidays-christmas-ornament/
* fabric collage wall hanging - free style fabric collage made as a wall hanging with loops on top for hanging. This can be vintage/ victorian style, chabby chic.
* Teesha Moore - fabric patches with each round being a different theme eg- birds, spring, houses, etc OR a teesha  patches style wall hanging or fabric journal page as above.
What about Teesha style fabric hanging heart ornament made of tiny patches and then sewn into a a heart shape stuffed with polyfill not flat?



ALSO anyone got any other ideas what to make with Teesha patches. Ive seen bags, table runners, pillows and journals and the pouches, but anyone know of anything else we could make?

Would love to hear other ideas to make with these patches which Im addicted to.

Would anyone be interested in this style of swaps?

There's recently been both fabric journal page and Teesha Moore patch swaps going on.  I would be interested in swaps based on all of those ideas.  I've recently been making felt houses.  Smiley

Hi "Alittlemusthave" welcome to Craftster!   Smiley Yes there is now the TM patches Swap, & we just had the Journal Swap, have done a little house Swap & I'm sure there has been a collage Swap. You could make the TM patches into a collage. They would all be fun to join. I'd be interested!  Wink

Also you could ask a craftster to do a personal swap. I would if you want to. Just PM me & we'll talk!

i think you can do personal swaps. Ask one of the Moderators I'm sure they'll help you.
I love your pouches they are awesome & looks like a lot of work!   Wink If it's OK to do a personal swap with you I would love one of your pouches. Hope to see you in a swap soon!  Smiley

Hi,
Just want to make it clear that these are not my pouches. They are pictures I found on the internet by another talented artist by the name of Fran Meneley. I have used the pictures just to show an example of what I was talking about making. Roll Eyes

Actually, you start off with one swap Wink  Per Craftster swap rules,

"If you have never swapped on Craftster before, you may only sign up for ONE swap to start out with. When you complete that swap and get Positive Feedback, you may sign up for up to FIVE at a time."

Here's the link to the Craftster Swap Info Guide Smiley

Ah, private swaps.  Read about them here

And if you have more questions about swapping, feel free to check out the Swap FAQ

I'm sorry, I just thought they were your pouches. Embarrassed But I still will do a personal swap with you if you want.  Wink  I could make patches or maybe a pouch kind a like those but not as good. HA Anyway PM me.
