Want to swap with me?

I've been thinking....

I've been doing this blog for a year and a half now and I am wanting to do something new and different. And then it occurred to me, why not do swaps? Over the couple of years that I've been keenly sewing, I have actually accumulated not only fabrics and other sewing supplies, but also loads of my handmade goods. I don't sell the bags I sew, so most of them are just kept in my wardrobe waiting to be used or given away...

Ok, so my big idea is this. Over the next weeks or months (depending on the response I get), I will be offering a lot of my precious stuff to swap. Whatever I will be swapping will be posted here and anybody interested can leave a comment and propose something to exchange. If you can email me photos, the better. I will choose one that catches my fancy the most. I am willing to ship to anywhere worldwide so anyone can join in!

As soon as both my swap partner and I receive our respective goodies, I will commence a new swap.

And so, for the first swap round....I am willing to trade 15 gorgeous Fat Quarters (as pictured below)! Most of these are prints for children. Please a take a look at the photos carefully. I have included close-up shots as well. You can also click on each photo to get an enlarged view.

Are you up for it? I will await your proposals, ok?

Oh yeah, before I go, have a look at another lucky find at the Op Shop...

King-sized goodness...Need I say more? Have a great weekend!


  1. what a great swap idea...sure hope you get many takers..oh my that's a nice blankey you found there,cheers Vickie

  2. I would love to do this... unfortunately both of my children are teenagers and most of my friends are out of the little kids stage too... will be looking for the next swap though.

  3. I am interested in this too but my kids are grown and I dont have any need for those ones but I am sure someone will :)

  4. Those are great! Wish I had something I could offer to swap for them. Maybe next offer. :)

  6. Hi corinne,

    do you have anymore fabric swaps?

  7. Hi Lia, This was the only fabric pack I was willing to swap. Unfortunately, no one seemed to have wanted it. Thanks for asking.

  8. I like it but I don't know what to offer.

    I do have some crochet and knitting books and quilting books I'd be willing to trade for it.

    Just let me know. :0)

  9. Hi Angie, Books will be too costly for you to ship. Thanks for asking anyway.
