Swap name: Pillow Case Swap
 Craftster member who is organizing this swap: kmsMaverick
 Sign-up date range: 31 August, 2005 through 10 September, 2005
 Date to send item by: 26 September, 2005

 Details of swap: Will you sew or will you stencil? That is the question.

We will be making pillow cases of some sort for our partners. They can consist of two different varieties: sleeping pillows, and couch pillows. The parameters are this: two cases for a bed, or four for couches. I dont want to get too carried away with all the different sizes and styles and varieties of pillows, so Id like to just stick with bed pillows (20x30 or 20x26) and couch pillows (12x12 or 18x18.

You may embellish crafted (sewn) or store bought ones.

Please remember that this forum is allowing store bought items, but that they should be altered to qualify for craftiness, and sewn cases should also have some cleverness other than just two squares of fabric sewn together.


List of partners:
Sporkx71 <--> Dragons muse
sugarhandgrenade <--> bunnygirl82
rayno24 <--> Space Cowgirl
Dixie_Terror <--> MichelleCooley
TTchica78 <--> theatreGirl25
BrokenPencil <--> TheMeowWon'tPurr
SeaOfStars <--> kmsMaverick

Please note that the ship date has not been altered, and the shipping date is still the 26 of September. Note too that a tracking number of some sort is required upon shipping. tracking numbers are available from UPS, fedex, the usps and DHL.

questionarries have been sent, so have a look at your messages, and let me know if i sent you your own questionaire. sometimes i think that copy and paste is not my friend.

hoo hoo hoo!

Probably a silly question, but are we to send the pillow forms also? Like if we made pillow cases for someone's couch, are we expecting that person to go and buy the pillow forms to fit our case? Am I making sense?

sorry about the us only thing, i'm not being snooty, i just don't want too many things to worry about. (sheepish)

as for the forms, no, no, this is just for the cases that go on 'em.

This sounds so fun!  I have to wait until I get positive feedback on my first swap (it ends 8/31) and then I think I am going to sign up!  Great idea!! Smiley

why don't you craft along?

you can make some cases for yourself, and then post them in the gallery whey it goes up.  or you can swap along with a family member- the same idea, craft along with us, and then give them to you sister or to you mom or someone, that way you can get the practice of crafting for someone else's taste.

c'mon it will be fun!

I'm sorry, i should have gotten back to you. (sheepish) 

no no, you already meet the requirements, just that this will be your first swap, and a member is limited to one swap only for the first swap. after this one, you'll be able to participate in more than one at the same time (have a look at my profile, you'll see that the black purse was my first, then when it was finished, i went slightly crazy and signed up for lots all at the same time).

this is my first time organizing, so we're all in this together.

I sent a signup, but I'm not sure if there was still space for me. What's the final tally?
I wanted to be in this so bad, and then got caught up in my first week of school, so I hope I didn't miss out.

Heh, here it's the 11th already, don't know if it is there, AND it's US only... which I guess is for the best, 'cause I strictly speaking don't have the time to do a swap of this nature, though if I'd joined I'd totally take time away from schoolwork to do this instead XD
Hope there's a round 2 worldwide Smiley 'cause this sounds like much fun!

hi everyone! i've only heard from a few people regarding their progress, but that's cool, i'm doing my best not to be a complete wet blanket.

i just want to remind everyone before i split work (and this wreched computer) for the weekend that the ship date is monday, and that i will need to have tracking (delivery confirmation) numbers from everyone. i have been made aware by two participants that they may ship late, so i'm hoping that everyone else is feeling ok about hitting monday for shipping.

please let me know if you are not, and also drop your partner a line letting them know too.

so i'm off for the alumni game at college this weekend, wish me luck and no strikeouts!
