S/Dreams: Paper Bag Swap 2011

Hi Snickerdoodle Dreams Friends...

I invite you all to have FUN & participate in a most CREATIVE SWAP hosted by Snickerdoodle Dreams - Community.

Full Registration Details, Swap Information & Due Dates can be found by clicking our Group link::

ps: you need to be a member of S/Dreams Community to participate. Membership is free.

Just a quick overview of what the swap is....

The following items must be included in your paper bag:

2 fat quarters - 1x background & 1 x Co-ordinating Fabric
1 skein of DMC embroidery thread - to match

Then GET CREATIVE by adding extra bits 'n' pieces to your paper bag.

Items such as: buttons, lace, charms, ribbon, ric rac, bells, beads, flowers, scrapbook papers/embellishments etc. It's up to you what extra's you add to your paper bag for your partner to create with.

1. The bolded items (above) must be used in some way in the project you make for your partner...
2. Left over bits 'n' pieces from your paper bag will be added to your partners stash!
3. You may be assigned a partner who may be a scrapbooker or a quilter/stitcher (or both)... don't be scared...
4. The AIM..... is to handcraft something that you love creating for your partner and vise versa... in return you'll have a new handcrafted goodie that you may not be able to do yourself....

The paper bag and it's yummy contents are then sent to your swap partner. It is their task to make a hand crafted project using the items inside the paper bag. At the same time you will receive a paper bag of items from your swap partner, and you have to also make a hand craft project.

1. You are allowed to add extra fabric or bits from your own stash to complete your project, but you must use the items that were sent to you in some way.
2. Once your handmade item is finished, it is then sent back to your swap partner.
3. International Friends are more than welcome to participate....
