Hopefully we are all committed to a round 2!   Please............ 

I am, after we've wrapped up this one up. And I'm not posting internationally until next payday (a month away) as it's a minimum cost of $10 per parcel to the US or Canada. (I could send up to 15 patches in that though!)

You are one of the best!!!!   I am no way ready for round 2 just want to make sure we have one!!!!!  I bet alot of  peeps  join as well as the whole gang here now!  Thanks!!!!!!!

They do, but not three the size I made. And also the lady at the post office informed me that envelopes were only for letters - else I could have bought prepaid international envelopes for $2 something and put up to 50g in there. (For comparison sake, the three patches I sent to TSM AND the bubblewrap padded tough bag all weighed 49g)

I may be able to sneak one patch in an international envelope at a time though.

What I need is a reverse Ship It To - somewhere I can send a parcel to in the US and then they split it up and resend the smaller packages at the cheaper domestic rate.

I have sent fabric and other things as letters but it is a little bit of a risk. Letters don't need customs declarations but the PO have to ask you 'is there just paper in here?'. I said yes - off they went.

I sent fabric and small flat stuff for the AUD$1.60 over Christmas (even put the 'card only' stickers on Tongue), all arrived.. what is the risk?

CLM, a quilt!!!  Genious!!!  I think the backs of each patch would have to be embroidered as neatly as possible to prevent tearing off little bits or un-doing stitching when the quilt is in use.  Or, maybe doing the tying thing that a lot of folks do on quilts and put a full backing on it.  Totally RAD idea Smiley  I'm permanently borrowing that idea, if you don't mind!

I'm done with 4 now.  These could totally get addictive!  It's a nice easy project while sitting and watching tv.  Lets me be creative and not have to be constantly following a pattern (I've been knitting a lot lately!).

SilverMoon, I would be happy to be your "ship it to"...........if you made 50 patches and put in one envelope/package and included $ for each, I could easily divide them up and resend to your partners.............
oh, and I PROMISE not to keep any for myself, heehee  :-)

But seriously, I think any of us would help out international shippers with cost...........

It's a thought anyway............

My very first one down! I'm pretty excited about how it turned out, despite the rough start. I did wind up picking out the stitches around the edge and resewing them (the bunching was really, really bad), but I think it turned out alright. I made another stop by the fabric store last night & found some even more perfect fabric than what I spent all day looking for on Sunday... this could turn into an addiction  Shocked

 I made my first one last night and I think it turned out cute. The back is a little rough but I think my partner is going to line it so that should be okay, and my edges are more rolled than flat but I sort of like it that way. It look rustic.  Tongue   I hope they all go as smoothly as the first one!
