1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Craft Swaps / Re: Felt Twinchie Swap Round 2 - sign up until June 7, send out July 7, 2017 on: May 25, 2017 08:59:19 PM
Welcome to the swap, bec99, craftylittlemonkey, and BigBangMomma!!  Hope the rest of you can join too! Smiley

And I feel you, fatewineroses; I am pretty much eternally maxed on swaps because there are just so many good ones I keep joining another as soon as I get a slot... which means I end up late sometimes... oops.  But they're just so wonderfully fun and addictive!  Hope you can join this one, but if not, there will definitely be more rounds in the future!!

Wow, the last few posts in here are really gorgeous too!  And I'm glad it sounds like we'll have until around 3 weeks from now to sign up for the next round; I hope to have another empty slot by then!  (SO many great swaps happening lately, it's tough to keep up!!)

Hooray!  I also love the image at the top, and will probably mention that on my Q as something I'd love to get a version of. Smiley

I'm working hard to catch up on the swaps I'm already in, but I have two already in the mail that will hopefully arrive soon to open up a new swap slot!  Assuming one arrives before this closes, I'll be in!

Hi Mellius!  I'm going to be collecting a lot more before I start putting them together, but I think I'll attach them to a plain cloth background, probably with a few small stitches that match the color of each square.  I think some people are going to keep them separate, too, as magnets or ornaments and things! 

Meanwhile!!  I know we're still waiting for the last package for this swap, but I've started the next round already!!  Whee!!  Signups are here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452444.0

We're just waiting on one last package for this swap!  And meanwhile, I already started signups for the next one!!  Yeah, got kinda excited. XD  But it's a whole two weeks to sign up, so hopefully that's enough time for people to join in again!  Here's the new swap thread: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452444.0

Details of swap:
This swap was originally inspired by this post, featuring "Feltbeasts" by Becky Margraf: http://www.creativeboom.com/inspiration/felt-faces-artist-becky-margraf-crafts-100-little-faces-for-100-consecutive-days/

We'll be making four felt patches for each partner (you can request one or two partners), 2x2 inches square.  Many of us may be combining these into collages at some point, so please try to get the dimensions as close to 2x2 as possible! Other than that, the sky (and your partner's Q) is the limit!

The first round was SUPER fun!  Check out the first round's gallery here! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452068.0

Hi!!  I'm alive, but haven't actually started working on this swap yet since I'm still catching up on a couple others.  Excited to get to work on this one when they're done though!!

Hi all!!

Whew, sorry I've been so slow updating stuff.  Crazy busy all of the sudden!  But I believe everyone should have feedback now; please let me know if I've goofed up at all!  And I think there's just the one angel package left to be received, right?  XD 

Smmarrt, those are really beautiful squares!!  I think my favorite is the pgymy puff; I like how you actually made it puffy!!

seeuudee, thank you for making the pinterest board! I'd been sort of pinning some myself, but you've labeled them so much more nicely, I think I'll delete my pins later and repin yours.  Smiley

Aaah, CLM, the kawaii breakfast food squares are EXCELLENT!!  I like the different edging on each square, and speaking of edging, great crust on that toast with jam! And yes, I love the cereal bowl as well!

I'm terribly sorry to say that I still haven't sent out yet.  A bunch of things have caught up with me at once and I'm playing catch-up on craftster as well as in other areas!  I'm about to message and update about the wonderful cards I have received so far, and I will message again once I have sent.  I guess... umm... this means the period of fun mail will be stretched out a bit for everyone? ;P  (Seriously though, sorry!!)

This is sooooo gorgeous!! Paper piecing in general still looks like magic to me, and this is a fantastic one!
