Some fun swaps happening

Creating and Sewing is fun, but there is only so much stuff you personally need or that you know someone else needs and this is where a swap comes in handy and fun.  You get to create something for someone else and at the same time get a handmade item for yourself by someone else creating a friendship.
We are pretty hard up on cash right now so I can't really mail anything out,but here are some fun swaps that YOU might want to participate in.

Triple Zip Pouch with Stephanie at Quarter Incher is happening again, it was so fun last time.  I made and sent this for my secret partner.

 Go here to find more information.

Round 3 Secret Tote Bag Swap is starting soon, sign in so you can get the information as soon as sign ups are allowed.  I participated in Round 2, the theme was Nature, and sent this package out,
you can see the feathers back here
 And got this one in return.
So very pretty.
I might just join the Secret Tote Bag Swap one again, the theme this time is Geometry and I am thinking hexagons, speaking of hexagons there is also a new EPP Swap Group on Flickr, I would love to join but I already have an commitment for that date and don't want to stress myself out, especially when it comes to doing something with English Paper Piecing.  They are swapping pouches this time around and Sign-ups are going on right now.

Will you be joining in any swaps this year, or know of other swaps?  Speaking of, there are a few more spots for the Purple Charm Swap, just in case you want to join in on the Pantone Challenge of the Year and need to stock up on a variety of fun orchid/purple colors!

Thanks for the swap mention. :) Love the tote bag swap. I participated in both last year but I'm sitting this round out. Doesn't it seem like the new year filled up quickly?


I checked out the swap.. I did the purse last year and still using it. The Epp would be fun, but I will save my international funds for my buddy.. :)
