4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Timeless Relics / Antique inspired Swap on: July 07, 2018 04:03:12 PM
Hey swappers!
I've been wanting to get into a swap lately but not seeing any that fire me up. My sweetie had an idea today that I loved..
We go to antique stores often, and love the aesthetic of vintage, old, ancient items. They just don't make things like they used to!
But what if we did?

The idea is to take inspiration from antique relics and replicate them. Maybe using vintage materials, salvaged wood/paper/leather/fabrics... to create something new that looks old, or timeless --- when was that item made? Who can say?!
I've never hosted a swap but this idea gets me excited. Anyone else? Ideas?

I haven't heard back from Emilyxorange, but I'll post pictures of what I sent her way, had fun making these things inspired by our shared love of geometry, color, and some things from her pinterest page.... =)

Some super groovy geometric foam shapes i hand sewed and strung on a garland! hard to get a great picture of them all..

Always wanted to make one of these beaded leather wrap around bracelets, now i have!

Knit cap that goes with the color theme, very cozy, slouchy, vibrant.

Books!
The common theme for EmilyXorange and I

She sent me a package with many book and reading themed items, including:
A small clutch purse made from a hardback(may have broken in the post)
Charm bracelet with little books made straight from my goodreads account (nice job!)
Three clever bookmarks
and some images from the book used to make the purse.
Bonus, she got me a book I haven't read by one of the authors I liked when I was young. Very sweet!
Thanks lady!

Today when I got home from work, I was delighted to find a box from P_E_S_T!
Behold! The wonders she sent to me are perfect, fabulous, and exactly my taste. I shall try to convey their glory in photographic form (but will not do them justice)
First, lovingly packaged in recycled orange wrapping, this is what I saw when I opened my box:


Then, I began to open the gifts..... These wire-wrapped pendants are sea glass and rusted stone, and I love them.


This piece of woman-power sacral-chakra artwork is already up on my altar.


This is a magical pocket attached to a hand-knit belt! (made with recycled sari silk, in the perfect green and amber hues)


The elephant orange background is a silky pillowcase, and she spoiled me with embroidery thread, yarn, and an orange bead assortment!


A felty hoop with beautiful stitching, already hanging on my bedroom wall:


I LOVE this scarf! It was made with shredded t-shirt fabrics, and the heart pendant is attached to it! Amazing!!!


She also added some flower seeds, honeycomb candles, a book (which I'm already anxious to read), a charm pendant, and sewing pattern.
This is the best and most beloved swap package I've received yet! I love it all!

Thank you thank you thank you P_E_S_T! <3 you are a wonderful swap partner

I'm glad my package found you well, P_E_S_T!
I was a little worried about how stable the clay pendant would be, that spiral was a bit fragile. Sorry it snapped in the post!
I had a great time getting into the hand-stitching of the prayer flags. The colors brought a lot of joy into my rainy days as I worked on them here. Glad that they'll be flying with Kate now!
Thanks for taking pictures, since I forgot to in my excitement of boxing and sending it out =)
Now I have to be patient until yours arrives.
Love this swap! And it looks like everyone got great packages so far
