THIS SWAP IS FULL!
(feel free to fill out the form below to be an
alternate or be notified of future swaps)(I’m also hosting an Ann Kelle themed I Spy half swap now!)
- This is a “half” swap
- There will be 24 spots
- Choose any Sewing/Notions themed novelty cotton fabric
- Cut ½ yd of fabric into 24 five inch charms and mail to me
- Once swapped, you will have a fun sewing themed charm pack
So I love making I Spy things for my kids:
I Spy Quilt
BUT sometimes I admit to
hoarding saving adorable novelty
prints for myself or for making gifts for sewing/quilty friends. So I thought
it’d be fun to do a sewing and notion themed swap. Fabrics like, sewing machines, spools, seam
rippers, rulers, pin cushions, pins, scissors, etc.
You will need to purchase a half yard of fabric (**more for large scale prints; please check the size/scale before finalizing an online order).
PLEASE FUSSY CUT; it’s disappointing to receive charms that aren’t useable. Give what you’d like to receive.
Fabric should be ironed before cutting. Here's a great tutorial on how to cut fabric into charms by Elizabeth Hartman.
Once everything is cut and ready, place fabric in a ziptop bag and include an index card (or piece of paper) with your name and Flickr ID.
In your envelope please include a PREPAID SELF ADDRESSED STAMPED ENVELOPE for me to mail your charms back to you! This is very important! (Flat Rate Envelopes are $5.60)
**International swappers can order their fabric online and have it shipped directly to me. I will iron and cut your charms and return any extra fabric with your swapped charms. Return shipping/packaging will be paid via Paypal.
After signing up for the swap, upload a picture of your chosen fabric(s) to the I Spy Flickr Group. The Flickr group is where I’ll be keeping everyone updated on when fabrics are received and sent. It is also a fun place to share project ideas.
Just a tip...I like supporting local quilt shops when I can. But my favorite online shops are Fabric.com, Etsy, and Fat Quarter Shop. At Fabric.com you can find fabric easily by typing in the color you're searching. Then narrow down the results by clicking "quilting fabric" and then "novelty & conversational quilt fabrics".
The date to have your charms to me is July 23rd. This time frame is short, but should allow everyone sufficient time to purchase, cut, and mail packages. Serious swappers only! ; ) I will email everyone my mailing address once the spots are all filled.
Each participant may sign up for a maximum of 2 spots. There are 24 spots total.
Please fill out the form at the bottom to sign up!
