Quick!  Let’s make this cute monster plush!  Go to http://www.dailyplush.com/tutorials/how-to-sew-a-plush-monster  to download the pattern and tutorial.  This may be the fastest swap you ever saw…sign-ups will end on Wednesday evening (July 27th) at 6pm.  You will have one week to craft, send outs on August 3rd.  What do you think?  Can you keep up with me and susanab? Throw caution to the wind--sign up!  

It will be "sender's choice" (with inspiration from your partner's wists) as far as color, material, etc., so you don't have to worry that you don't have the perfect fabric on hand to suit your partner.  Make it cute, have fun, it's summer, let's do this thing!

Swap Details:
You will send one Daily Plush Monster using the pattern at the link above, to one partner.  Jazz it up any way you want to!  There were a ton of great ideas in our recent Monster Ninni swap, you might want to look at the gallery HERE. Take a look at your partner’s questionnaire, and her Wists or Pinterests, but don’t make yourself crazy trying to match her interests—this is SENDER’S CHOICE, so if you don’t have the perfect fabric or embellishments, that’s okay!  Make the monster your way.

You will have just one week to craft your monster.  Send-outs are August 3, 2011.  I always tell my kids, the best way to avoid being late is to be early!  So send early if you can, or on time, but don’t be late!

Curse you women! There was so much energy in these posts I can't help it. And it's a super quick swap so no time for anxiety, right?

I would love to join this swap since I had so much fun with the last one!!!  But the timing doesn't work for me because I start 2nd year orientation/training at work during the crafting period and will be out of town until August 6th Sad

If there is a round 2, I'll definitely join Smiley

I posted the following a little after 3pm my time on the New Swap Theme Ideas, because I thought it was THIS thread:

"Wow - just logged on to Craftster and I have a new swap to join!  FUN!  Cheesy   I've already sent in my questionnaire - this will be zippy!  Thanks Leslieshappyheart and
susanab - looks like fun!   Cool "   

 - I need to finish my totes and send out first (Craft this Tote and Fill It!), and then I'll be crafting a monster - mmm, need to think of some nifty monster ideas --  Cool Cool Cool

You got me hooked! I'm signing up!
« Reply #8 on: July 24, 2011 07:56:57 PM »

Oh this sounds fun!  So, do we need to use the pattern given, or is this just for any monster?  Either way, sounds tempting.

Okay questionnaire sent and pattern downloaded now just waiting for partner  Grin

Two questions...

...Can we change the size of the pattern?
...Is this swap just for 1 partner?
