purple spotty elephant



so there was some interest in the low volume swap, so i thought i'd go ahead and run it!

OK details we need 27 people plus me to make 28 people from the UK and ireland (or if there is enough interest a bigger swap of 56) and then we all buy 1 yard of low volume fabric (or 2 yards if 56 people)

sign-ups will be open from 2 november - 6 november

once everybody has signed up you get to go and look at pretty fabric and buy 1 yard of low-volume-y goodness! we are looking for modern prints and no solids, with a good scale for cutting into charms. and all 100% high quality cotton fabric please :)

once you have chosen your fabric upload it to the flickr group, be sure to check there are no doubles of fabrics before you purchase yours!!

this swap will be 5 inch squares and from a yard of fabric you'll get 56 squares there is a great tutorial over at oh, fransson on how to cut them.

get your pretty little charm squares over to me for the 2nd december, include in your parcel a pre-addressed envelope, now that's important so make sure you include it!!
I will return your packages (assuming everyones arrive on time) on 9 december. for shipping i will send you all an email asking for the cost of shipping via paypal.

ok all sound good? great, just leave a comment that you want to join :) and lets get swapping!!

p.s oh and spread the word, more people equals more fabric!!
