Details of swap:
Do you need a new squishy friend? A tiny stuffie perhaps? Do you like to make small things? A tiny stuffie perhaps? Are you in the mood for a quick, fun, and easy swap? This is the swap for you!
We will be creating ONE tiny stuffie based on our partner’s preferences. It can be made of any medium (sewn, knit, crocheted, felted, etc.) as long as it is a stuffie. The stuffie should be small – able to fit inside an invisible 5”x5” cube. It can be smaller than that but if you are crafting something microscopic you may want to discuss it with your partner. We will be sending ONLY the stuffie – no extras UNLESS they are accessories for your stuffie.

If you don’t think you have the time and energy to put your best work into this swap please don’t sign up this round. We’ll catch you next time. Also, remember you must post in the swap thread before signing up and once per week until the swap is finished.

I've picked a subject, found a pattern to start with (I never seem to follow it exactly) and have to gather supplies. It's crazy thinking there are already people who have sent out!  :o

I've got a pattern and right now I'm still picking out materials. I know I have a certain supply and I can't find it. It's driving me nuts! Not sure I want to use it, but I want to have the choice! Mrrr... I really need to tidy up my craft room. This type of supply has a place, but I've put it somewhere clever instead, obviously.

Careful, I can never find things after I tidy up. I usually find it after the swap or project is over.

Same here! ;)

Started on the "body"; I'm extrapolating [AKA guessing wildly] from a full-sized pattern. We'll see how it goes.

I had hoped to be able to sneak off work early to mail this, but my clever plan failed. :( Sending tomorrow will be a challenge, so I might end up sending one day late. Will try to avoid that however. We'll see!

Yay! Exciting :)

My little critter is packed up and ready. I decided on a box and not a padded envelope to avoid squishing the poor thing so unfortunately I can't use the quick drop option tomorrow. Still going to try to mail tomorrow, but it's 50-50 if I can get to an open post office between work and other obligations...

Shouldn't that be feedback to everyone who had the package reach its destination?

Yeah. I probably should have waited until packages have been received but I know some of you are waiting to get  signed up for other swaps. I know all of you did a fantastic job of sending on time or even a little late. You kept up with communication. I have one person left that has not sent yet. She will be sending late.

Still waiting on a couple more receives but everyone has sent. Everyone got their feedback. I consider this a very successful swap. Thanks all! I will consider this swap closed once everyone has received.

I screwed up. I really would like one more crafter please for this swap. By the end of the day please so I can send out questionaires.
