Swap Sewing

Most of my sewing lately has been swap sewing.

I already posted about by addiction to the economy block.  I ended up making 100 of them.  That all started with the Fussy Square Block Swap.  Sign ups are closed for this round, but I’m sure there will be more rounds in the future.

Next up was the Endless Polaroid Bitties Swap.  These are just as addictive as the economy blocks, maybe even more!  They go quicker than the economy blocks when you chain piece them.  The theme this round was woodland animals/nature.  Again, sign ups are closed on this one.  But keep an eye out for future rounds.

This happy stack of scraps is for the Fabric Scrap Swap.  This is by far the easiest swap ever.

I am also signed up for The Sewing Room Swap.  I was super excited about signing up for this one.   It’s a blind swap where we make 2 items for our secret partners.  One large item, such as a sewing machine cover, tote, wall hanging, etc.  And a smaller item such as a pincushion or needle book.  I have my partner’s details and I’m ready to start sewing tomorrow on this one.

The last two swaps that I signed up for are still open for sign ups.  The Triple Zip Swap is a fun and easy swap.  Everyone uses the same free tutorial to make a triple zip pouch for their secret partner.  I participated in Round 1 and it was a fun make.  I also find that I use my triple zip pouch ALL THE TIME!  I use mine to keep my purse contents organized and it works perfectly.  I believe sign ups are only open until tomorrow, so hurry if you want to join.   And last, but certainly not least, the Secret Tote Bag Swap.  I have participated in both Round 1 and Round 2 of the Secret Tote Swap and both times received beautiful totes.  Sign ups are open until 1/31.  Come join the fun!

The last thing that I have been working on is prepping sheets to crochet into rag rugs.  I am finally ready to start crocheting!
