For those who love the look of scrappy work and/or those with waaaay too many fabric, yarn, paper scraps or various beads, buttons or whatever, I present this swap!

You are free to use whatever scraps you have, with whatever technique you want, as long as you craft items that have lots of different scraps in them! And that you craft according to your partner's taste!

The requirement for the swap will be ONE LARGE (or two mediums) and ONE MEDIUM (or two smalls).
Just about anything can be made 'scrappy'. Here are a few things that I'm thinking about, but I'm sure you can add more to this list!
- potholder
- mug rug
- coffee mug cozy
- place mat (fabric or paper and laminated)
- coasters
- cuff bracelet
- pouch of any kind (sunglasses, coins, phone,...)
- journal cover
- cards
- bracelet (beads, paper beads, buttons, fabric,...)
- necklace
- bookmark
- pillow case
- pincushion
- scarf
- wall art
- picture frame
- gift tags
- magnets

Details of swap:
--You will make one large and one medium OR one large and two smalls OR two mediums and two smalls.
A small is generally considered as something that takes under 2 hours to make; a medium something that takes 2-3 hours to make and a "large" more than 3 hours to make.
--You will have 3 and 1/2 week crafting time, from 04/23/15 - 05/18/15
--You have creative freedom to use any material, any embellishment, any technique you want, as long as what you craft is scrappy (using at least 4 different materials) and suited to your partners tastes.
-- You will need to post in this thread at least once a week so I know you are still crafting with us.

- No one like to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, don't sign up.
- You must get delivery confirmation if sending within the U.S., or a mailing receipt if sending elsewhere.
- If you must send late, let the organizer and your partner know ASAP.
- Please post photos of the package you receive in the gallery.

If you have any questions about this or anything else, please ask your organizer.

Just sent in my questionnaire. I've been cutting back on my swapping this year so I would have more time for finishing WIPs, but this is too good to pass up. Next challenge will be, "How much can I make from stash?"

Oh, this sounds perfect for me! I'm signing up right away because I'm going to be away from home for a week and I don't know how much Internet access I'll have.

Looking forward to this!

Ya know, I told myself I was going to cut back on the swaps and then yesterday I saw the signups for this swap.  I tried to pass the posting by because I knew if I read about it I'd be sucked in.

This morning I get on the computer to look at Craftster, and what do ya know...I got sucked in.  Roll Eyes

I sent in my questionnaire.

Swapping is TRULY addicting!
