 Do you love making Teesha Moore-style patches? Have you always admired them but haven't yet caught the TM bug? Well, this could be the swap for you!

In this round of the TM Patch Swap, you will be crafting for 1 or 2 partners (first time swappers will be limited to 1 partner) and from 1-3 patches (you and your partner should agree on the exact number).

Also, you will have the option of exchanging a TM Patch Supply kit with your partner (contents of kit may include: floss, fabric, embellishments {buttons, beads, ribbons, charms, etc}, poly-fil, etc.).

Let's keep this swap simple and limit it to the sending of patches and kits (if you love sending extra things, consider adding those as part of a kit  Smiley ).

There are lots of inspirational patches from previous swaps, so check out some of the galleries here:

We will each make/decorate a 12-16" tall stocking (cuff to heel) and fill it with goodies.  We will make/decorate and fill with our partner's tastes in mind.  Each stocking will have at least 50% crafted goodies, the remainder may be purchased supplies or items.  Everyone must post in the swap thread when they sign up as a swapper, and there will be weekly checkins every week in the thread!  It's a very long crafting period and we would hate to lose anyone along the way.  You may choose one of three sizes to do in this swap and you will be paired accordingly.  Sometimes there will be an odd number, so please note if you are willing to do (for example) Small or Medium or maybe Medium or Large or work with a 3-way swap.

                      Small - concentrate on a fab stocking and fill with at least 3 crafted and 3 purchased items
                      Medium - do a great stocking and fill with at least 7 crafted and 5 purchased items
                      Large - aka Spoiler!  A great stocking and no end of goodies!!

NOTE:  This is a holiday based swap so please do not send late - there are times when life interferes with crafting and we all understand that, however, a temporary negative will be given to anyone who sends more than two weeks past the sendout date, according to Craftster rules.  If you send late at all, it will be noted in your feedback.  Communication issues will also be noted.  We like to run a very nice, fun and timely swap.

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Fandom in Stitches Paper Pieced Block Swap? on: February 27, 2018 02:44:26 AM
Ok, I've seen quilt block swaps in the past, but not one of those.

I'm an absolutely "Fan girl/woman" of many different Fandoms, and I absolutely am addicted to Fandom In Stitches.

Was wondering if there would be enough interest to make a block swap for paper pieced blocks from their website? Could be any fandom they have on there.

Let's see if there are enough interested fandom people out there to make a swap.
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / TM (Teesha Moore) Patch Swap Rd 10? on: February 10, 2018 03:29:24 PM
Seems we haven't had a swap for TM Patches in a very long time. Is anyone interested in a new round?

I might even make my debut as swap organiser for this one ... end of February/beginning of March sign ups?
9  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 118 ENTRIES / Hobbit Hole Bag on: April 07, 2017 03:18:08 PM
I was matched up with Audania1 for the Middle Earth Swap. I'd seen a couple of Hobbit Hole Bags on her Pinterest, and when I came across this pattern on Ravelry I thought I adjust the pattern from pillow to bag.

The only "adjustments" to a pattern for me in the past was adding some rows and that was it, so trying this bag was a bit of a step up for me. But I liked how it came out, and I think Audania1 likes it as well. Smiley



10  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Little Jawas on: November 02, 2013 01:42:30 PM
As hubby decided (with 100% trust in me to get it done in time) that our twin girls will be Jawas this year, I bought brown fleece beginning of October, scoured Craftster for ideas and then... left it to the last minute (for a Halloween party on the 26th) again!  Shocked

Hubby made the "ammunition belts" with normal belts and pieces of cardstock.  Due to their age we agreed not to blacken their faces or put a ski mask over their heads to maybe attach "Jawa Eyes".
