Okay recently I have become obsessed with plushies/ softies/soft toys what ever you want to call them.
The swap idea - make a Pinterest board of all the plushies/ softies you would love to have and your partner will choose from your board.
The twist is that they MUST be character plushies/softies.( eg - tv characters, cartoon characters, movies, book characters etc) get the jist!
It will be up to the maker what size etc., with communication to your partners tastes.
I think something like this was done maybe a year ago but I think it's time to do it again, plus I missed out.
Anyone want in? Probably mid August.

I'd be interested too.  Maybe making it a character could be an option?  I love all kinds of stuffed animals, plushies, soft toys.  I also collect them.  Making stuffed animals is what I'm best at.  I'm sure there are some people who are looking for a certain kind of animal, not necessarily a character.

Are they all sewn? Can they be crocheted?

I absolutely love love quilts, do you think an afghan is a fair trade for a quilt? I'd love to swap!

I could put the option if people would like a crocheted one, but you must be willing and able to sew as well, as I really want the theme to stay plushie/softie- in fabrics and furs etc.
Also the reason why I thought of this is because of the characters we could create, so I won't be changing that. Other swaps for animals and such I'm sure will come up in the future.
On that note, someone might like My little Pony, so that's an animal, or what about in Adventure time, there is also a pony type animal in that as well. Maybe someone loves The Flintstones Dino( dinosaur) or Donkey from shrek, Ghost from game of thrones, as you can see there maybe a lot of opportunities to sew an animal character!
So I hope you join Gotgrey....

Oooh this sounds fun!! Plushies are my favorite thing to sew - I actually have a list of about 50 character plushies I wanted to make (list actually needs to be expanded now) so this would knock at least one off the list!

If possible, September would work much better for me (school starts up at the end of August so it'll be a bit hectic around here)

Cruising deviantart, I saw a Furret plushie and a Hounddoom plushie.  Would LOVE to make either one of those, or maybe, even a Sven/"Frozen" reindeer plushie!
