For those who love the look of scrappy patchwork, or those with waaaay too many fabric scraps, susanab and I present this swap! Usually, in the swaps we organize, we offer a pattern for the item that will be swapped; this time, we are offering a technique (the scrappy patchwork technique) that can be used to create anything you think your partner will like. I'm also offering an ENVELOPE OF BEAUTIFUL SCRAPS to get you started!  You will find the technique in two places on my blog:

Scrappy Patchwork Tutorial and Scrap Fabric Giveaway

Scrappy Snappy Pouch Tutorial  

You don't have to use the technique (or scraps) we offer, as long as you craft items that have lots of different fabrics in them!  The requirement for the swap would be two smalls or one medium item.  For those who think two smalls isn't enough, you may have two partners if you wish!

Just about anything you would make out of fabric could be made “scrappy”.  Here are the things I’m thinking about—what would you add to this list?
--mug rug
--coffee mug cozy
--place mat
--table runner
--cuff bracelet
--snap pouch
--tote bag
--journal cover
--sofa pillow
--stuffed plushie
--pin cushion
--drawstring bag
--crafter's apron
--card case
--iPod cozy

Details of swap:
--You will have a choice of one or two partners.
--You will make two small items or one medium item for each partner. A “small” is generally considered as something that takes under 2 hours to make; a “medium” something that takes 2-3 hours to make.
--You will have a 4 week crafting time, from 11/02/11 to 11/30/11
--You have creative freedom to use any fabric, any embellishment, any technique you want, as long as what you craft is “scrappy” (using at least 5 different fabrics) and suited to your partner’s tastes.
-- You will need to post in this thread at least once a week so we know you are still crafting with us.

Watching! Too much to do right now to fill out a Q but I am watching! Maybe Sunday I will get to it, since the Halloween thing at church is Saturday night. I should be clear after that!

Ooh, I do so love all things scrappy. I am trying to limit my swaps to one sendout a month; I already have one for November but since the date is the 30th that might almost count for December......

I'm definitely interested in this swap but I need to gauge my progress in my swaps and Christmas crafting before deciding.  I've bookmarked this.  Smiley
