(This is a craft fail from the first round. My partner was JessKelly and moon/lunar was one of her themes. I tried "couching" or what I thought was couching which is to stitch over yarn - in this case to make letters.)

Swap name: Fabric Art Journal Pages Swap 3 (FAJPS 3)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Smmarrt
Sign-up date range: June 1 - 15, 2014
Date to send item by: July 22, 2014

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 24

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
If so, which country?

- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:

Let's go again! We will swap one fabric art journal page with one partner. (If there is an odd number of swappers, I may make a 3-person group. Swapper A will send to Swapper B who will send to Swapper C who will send to Swapper A.)

You will craft a "page" - more like a quilt block - with unfinished sides and back and your partner will add it to his/her art journal or make a fabric book. Each swapper may choose the size they would like and the theme and their partners will have artistic license to interpret this theme as they wish. This could also be called a mixed-media fabric art journal page because you will add, incorporate and embellish with lots of goodies - fabric, buttons, ribbon, charms, sequins, paper and whatever else you can think of and/or already possess.

NOTE: We are swapping 2 or 3 pages with 2 or 3 partners as we have a small group this round.


As in all swaps, communication is key for a happy swap. So chat with your partner, chat in the discussion thread and ask questions This is a new technique and medium for most of us so we're all newbies in this swap.
