|A rockin' mug rug by Patchwork Delights|
This is a goodie swap, so everyone will have a chance to be creative. Each participant will make one mug rug (about 9x7 inches) and one goodie of their choice for their partners. By goodie, I mean any item you would like to make on the scale of a pouch, pin cushion, needle book or brooch. The choice is yours. Try something new or choose your go-to project.
|A little needle book...|
This will be a direct swap such that everyone signing up will be assigned two partners to which you will directly mail your creations. You, in turn, will get goodie packages from two other participants. You will not know who is creating for you, so it will be a surprise package that arrives.To forewarn you: this will be an international swap, so you may have to ship your goodies over seas.
The timeline is listed below. Please, please, please try your best to adhere so you do not let down your partners:
16 to 26 August - sign ups
31 August - assigning swap partners
|Brooch by Mary Emmens|
1 to 21 September - stitching and more stitching
22 September - post your goodies to your partners
If they are helpful, are some of my favorite mug rug tutorials, but there are many, many more out there if you look:
If you are interested in participating, leave a comment below with your email address. Once sign ups close, I will get in touch with you to get your mailing address, your three favorite colors and your fabric preferences (floral, geometric, solids, etc) to act as a guide (not as instructions) for your swap partners. I will then assign you the two partners for whom you will create.
This will be fun! A great way to use up that stash; give you the chance to expand your horizons; and hopefully will brighten both your day and your partner's mail box. What are you waiting for? Sign up today!
PS: As usual on a Tuesday, I'm linking up with Quilt Story's Fabric Tuesday.
Oh go on, put me down. What the heck. Not like I am doing anything else. :-)

just to clarify, we are assigned two partners, so it's two mug rugs and to goodies? or one rug for one partner and the goodie for the other one?

Sarah tipped me off about this. The time scale is a bit tight, and could lead to divorce, but hey lets have a go.
