Thanks to those who left comments about the paper bag swap idea - I'm going to go ahead with it so sign-ups are now open! Here's how it's going to work:
This swap is open to UK based bloggers only.
Sign up will be open from now until Sunday 4th October.
I will post the list of partners here on Monday 5th October.
You then have two weeks to get in touch with your partner, make friends and put together your bag of supplies.
Bags should be sent out no later than Monday 19th October.
When you receive the package from your partner, make them something lovely with the supplies they've sent you and send it back to them no later than Monday 16th November - that gives you 4 weeks making time which should be plenty I think.
Here are the rules regarding what you should send:
Please send 2 fat quarters of fabric plus one spool coordinating cotton thread.
Optional extras could include: a couple of skeins of embroidery thread, some ribbon or rickrack, or some buttons etc
Your supplies should be packaged in a nice bag - it doesn't have to be paper but I think we could really have a lot of fun making and/or decorating our own paper bags, but fabric would be nice too - just NO PLASTIC BAGS PLEASE!
When you come to make your items, you may add extra fabric or other supplies from your own stash but you must use the supplies that your partner has sent you.
If you want to send any little extra gifts then I would suggest you do that when you send back your finished items.
I hope that all makes sense! Any queries just let me know, and I'll go over it all again when I post the list of partners.
Jennyflower, A Bun Can Dance, Tiny White Daisies and DollyDollop - you're already on my list.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
