Details of swap:  This swap is for the Suzanne Collins series of book, The Hunger Games.  I think we all need some new crafty goodies to get ready for the movie release on March 23rd. Many of us couldn't do the big swap, so here's a second chance to get in on the fun. This is my first time organizing a swap so if I leave anything out please let me know! Please reply to this thread once a week to help me keep up with you guys. Wink I really want this to be a great swap so please dont sign up if you think you wont be able to finish it. I really dont want any flakers on my first swap.

You will be required to make 1 small item related to the Hunger Games series, so think bookmarks, small figurines, embroidery, etc. as possible items to send. For this swap, an item that is 5 inches or less in any dimension will be considered a small item and qualify as an OTT. Check out the plethora of OTT swaps in the Gallery for inspiration and ideas. Extras are not required, but if you would like to craft extras, please discuss this with your partner first. Although your item is small, it should be well crafted with attention to detail. Ask yourself, "If I got this, would I think a good effort was put into making this?" Don't sell yourself short. I know there are some great crafters here. Smiley

The size key is usually asked for, so here it is:

Large= 3 points
Medium=2 points
Small=1 point

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

Sign ups will be from Feb. 20 through March 3. The send out date will be March 17th, so items can arrive in time for the movie premiere.

If you want to participate, send your information to the organizer with the subject
OTT Hunger Games Swap.

Oh I'm so doing this one too  Grin I'm almost done with my stuff for the big Hunger Games swap and already feeling inspired to do more.

One suggestion though, shouldn't the send out date be sooner so that people will have time to get their items in the post for the movie opening? A lot of people will be making wearables and it'd be a shame to not be able to nerd out with our new stuff at the midnight shows! Also, I'm thinking there will be a ton of people wanting to sign up so if you need a co-organizer I'd be down to help.
