I. Am. SO. Excited! This has got to be a favorite swap for a bunch of us.  It's been over a year since the last Prayer Flag Swap, so it's time for another round! Did I mention I'm excited?  Grin Let's do this!

If you don't know about prayer flags, this article from Cloth Paper Scissors

How to Make Prayer Flags

1. Cut pieces of fabric to 5" x 11". Use materials you already have on hand.
2. Fold the top down on each piece of fabric and stitch in place to create a 3" sleeve, making the flag surface 5" x 8".
3. Paint, stitch, embroider, appliqué, or collage the flags.
4. Add words, journaling, or symbols as desired. You can appliqué letters, add hand stitching, stencil with textile paint, or just write with a permanent marker.
5. Thread the flags onto a string or cord and hang them outdoors so the breeze will catch them and spread your intentions.

To keep this an easy, low-stress swap, you can choose to send to either one or two partners. In addition, each of us is going to make an additional prayer flag for ourselves. So if you have one partner, you're going to make two flags and keep one, and if you have two partners, you're going to make three flags and keep one.

As usual, to sign up for this swap, complete this questionnaire and PM it to fatewineroses. But first, read this IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

- You must get delivery confirmation if sending within the U.S., or a mailing receipt if sending to or from elsewhere in the world.
- If you must send late, let the organizers and your partner know ASAP.
- Good communication is very important. If you haven't already posted in this thread, please do so as soon as you've signed up, and stay in touch by posting weekly in the swap thread.
- PM both organizer and your partner when you send and when you receive.
- Please post photos of the flags you receive and the flag you made for yourself in the gallery. Remember to take pictures of what you make before you send it, just in case.

Name of swap: Prayer Flag Swap Round 7 (Date to send item by: Saturday, June 10th)
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country in correct shipping format:
Are you willing to ship to an address outside your own country? (Note that prayer flags can usually be sent in a small padded envelope, so international postage should be reasonable.)
Confirm that you are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval (YES/NO)
Confirm that you will provide a Delivery Confirmation number if mailing within the US, or keep your postal receipt for non-US packages. (YES/NO)

Do you want ONE partner or TWO partners?

1. Do you have any allergies that are strong enough to prevent you from being partnered with certain people and what are they?
2. Do you have any other things you wish to avoid (such as feathers, glitter or animal products)?
3. Do you have any allergens (pets, smoke) in your house?
4.  Please list 4-6 different inspirational words you would like to see on your flag.
5.  Name some of your favorite images/themes that you would enjoy seeing on your flag:
6.  Are there any images/themes that your partner should avoid?
7.  What are your favorite colors, or color combinations?
8.  Are there any colors your partner should avoid?
9.  Please add a few more details about yourself and your tastes to help your partner get an idea of who you are. The more information you give, the better she/he can craft for you.  Feel free to add a link to your Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook or anything else that would give her/him an idea of your tastes and interests.

Getting partners matched up was a little tricky. Everyone wanted two partners; but we had eleven people. This is what I came up with. I wrote each person's name on a piece of paper, then I pulled two people. Once each person had two people sending to them, I pulled their name from the mix. All of this was done blind. (I state that because I really got lucky with my partners (sending and sent).  Grin

I sure hope I sent everything out correctly. I checked the partner list like two or three times to make sure I didn't do something funky.

This person sends to --> this person & this person

cmarion3 --> curiousfae & Wulf
Wulf --> fatewineroses & curiousfae
curiousfae --> Abbeeroad & flyraeven
CraftyMamaBee --> quaggy & seeuudee
Averia --> SuzyScissor & Wulf
Abbeeroad --> Averia & quaggy
Quaggy --> Abbeeroad & Averia
Seeuudee --> flyraeven & CraftyMamaBee

Why yes it is! I wanted to use a picture of one of my favorite flags from the last round for this round.

Everyone who sent me a questionnaire so far has been vetted, added and feedback has been open for each.

Keep 'em coming!
