Pink and Black Fabric, Stitching, Quilting, Cross Stitch ATC cards
Swap Due Date – May 16th
Withdraw date –communicate withdrawals
Number of cards – 3-3
Number of participants – unlimited
Medium- Fabric and stitching No Beads or doo dads, flat as possible

So many of you sew, stitch, quilt, appliqué, and everything else. But your cards must have either fabric with stitching or decorative stitching like cross stiching or embroidery stitching on them. Glued down fabric is no a fabric card, for this swap. We are celebrating the craft of sewing, decorative stitching or needle work. No paper except as a backer please. Let’s do a swap that includes them all, and is limited to Pink and Black

Please take the time to read all the information below.

For this swap, everyone will create 3 cards that are Fabric, stitched or quilted anything with fabric or threads. These cards should follow the colors of pink and black. You can make pink with black or black with pink. Please, use your imagination. Please send wonderful work that I know you can all do, and cards that you would want to receive in returns

Envelopes should have your site name, and which swap they are for. I have 6 going at a time. I really love to host.
Please PM me when you need an address. Those of you that have it, I still live here
I will supply the envelopes
USA participants:
Send the same amount in stamps or dollars as it took to send it to me- I will supply the envelopes.
DO NOT send computer produced postage. It has to be exchanged at a post office and I have an Annex. The post office is 6 miles. Those that know me know I seldom drive more than 1 or 2 miles, and you really don’t want me on the road anyway
Please send a large Label with your name and address, please put your country. The writing on the label should be at least 1.5 inches by 3 inches. Sticky backed makes me happy.

All other participants:
If you have American stamps from other swaps, send me a $1.20 in stamps, or $1 dollar American. If you don’t have access to American please send me a $1 stamp from your country for me to use in other swaps. Please no Euros they are hard to exchange and a pain to mail.
Please send a large Label with your name and address, please put your country. The writing on the label should be at least 1.5 inches by 3 inches. Sticky backed makes me happy.

Don’t forget to put your information on the back of every card.
Do not send an Envelope, I will Supply it

Of course host cards are never required but will be cherish.
On the back of your cards:
Title of card
Materials used
Your site name
Your real name
Your location, please include country.

What you should know for this swap-

Well It's been a bit quiet, But I bet as soon as everyone hears they will want to play. Maybe i'll send out an invitation. That will get things hopping.

03-10-2012, 02:55 PM
Welcome CDN

Okay if I sent the invote to any who have already signed up just ignore me. It's just been one of those weeks

03-10-2012, 03:31 PM
Yep, I'm in. Thanks for the invite. I can do this one.

03-10-2012, 03:34 PM
I hate to be picky, but can there be any white on it?

03-10-2012, 03:34 PM
Thanks for asking I would love to join this swap.

I will lurk for the time being...but am interested!!! :)

03-10-2012, 07:41 PM
Thanks for the invitation. Put me in,,,,Pink is going to be a challenge:skeptical:

03-10-2012, 08:08 PM
I hate to be picky, but can there be any white on it?
Jane it's solely pinks and black. No other color. Even though I think that white is a pigment and not an actual color.

03-10-2012, 08:15 PM
Kath would like to join! count me in!

03-10-2012, 09:02 PM
Welcome All I will update the list now. Lots of great artists. It's going to be such a fuun group

03-10-2012, 11:22 PM
Don't forget me!! running quickly. . .puff. . .pant. . .and waving arms madly Can I add seed beads in pink and black? They don't seem to have too much trouble with sorting machines.

03-11-2012, 10:36 AM
Absolutely Donna. I knew you'd make it

03-11-2012, 03:31 PM
Sign me up! I promise to subscribe this time!! :)


03-11-2012, 03:50 PM
Pink/black ribbon or pink/black rick rack allowed to embellish the fabric?

I found metallic carnation pink thread. :)
Absolutely CDN but the fabric underneath has to be either pink or black or both. Don't you love metalic thread!

Rememberr everyone no other colors other than pink and black. I don't want to have to send cards back to people because they didn't read the instructions. The uses up so much of my energy that i could be drawing. :jiggy:

Franciebelle, So happy to see you here

03-11-2012, 03:54 PM
Well my looky loo lurkers better decided I only have 38 more spots to fill for an even 50 participants. :yes::laugh:

03-11-2012, 04:42 PM
Yes thank you CDN. I've fixed it. We will blame that one on the Asthma medication.

03-11-2012, 05:09 PM
I would love to be a part of this swap! Please add me....

03-11-2012, 07:18 PM
Dang it. I have gone through my room full of fabric and cannot find any JUST pink or JUST black. I'm afraid I'm gonna have to skip this one. Sorry, all my fabric has other colors. I will be interested to see all the great cards though.

03-12-2012, 10:44 PM
Now that life is slowing down a little, I would love to play with pink & black
Please sign me up!

03-13-2012, 02:54 PM
Well I went to Joanns yesterday and found black on black patterned cloth, pink with black patterned cloth and pink on pink patterned cloth, and black and pink ribbon. I have to tell you it isn't easy to find these colors without any white in them but i did It in less than 15 minutes. I also found the next 2 colors whcih are Purple and silver/grey.

I had a really good time while there, they were having a sewing contest for kids 8 to 12 years old. There was an 8 year old girl who is mennonite (you could tell by the outfit and hat) and she had made the most perfect tote bag in pale blue, with little touches of green and yellow in places. it was it was all scraped together and then sewn with french seams and then machine quilted and lined in the yellow. For me she was surely the winner. Her work was impeccable.

03-13-2012, 03:35 PM
Jennie, just want you to know your threatening (LOL!) worked. I'm IN ....the pink and the black....hehehehe! I finally got some ideas so, watch out!!

03-13-2012, 06:58 PM
I'm so glad Jane

03-13-2012, 07:49 PM
Oh cant wait for purple and grey/silver. Purple is my favorite color!

03-13-2012, 08:47 PM
Well that's in a month or so. So this time is Pink and black with no other color or white. It's a challenge

03-13-2012, 09:06 PM
I would love all pink and black cross stich. Very cool idea. Welcome

03-13-2012, 09:13 PM

I Yves lotß of different pinks in my threads, and just bought pink/black and black/pink ribbons at Walmart. Also found pink ric rac. The biggest challenge. for me is fabric. I don't have a nearby Joannes, and my Walmart doesn't carry much fabric.

Will need to check my stashed fabrics for sure! If nothing else, I do have black fabric.

03-13-2012, 11:12 PM
Mel that's because you live in the sticks. hobby lobby carries some.

Cat's Cradle
03-13-2012, 11:15 PM
We don't have a HL here. Michaels one direction...in the town where we do our regular shopping, and where hubby works....Joanns in the other direction.

I don't like buying fabric online, either. I can scavenge some of the girls' old clothes...we're done with them and no one around needs them. Including charities!

03-14-2012, 02:19 PM
The only thing that matters is that you reuse them. I have a friend that made a beautiful quilt that has everthing from jeans to dress material in it. She has one for each child. It is all the clothes they wore as children. I love that she used piping between the squares. it just makes the quilt

Cat's Cradle
03-14-2012, 02:31 PM
That's why I keep certain outfits from the kids' baby times. I have several outfits set aside for quilts. The rest are either for craft use or go to someone who can use them.

03-14-2012, 03:07 PM
Great uses

03-14-2012, 03:45 PM
Alrighty everyone. I added to the instructions, because I realized that there were some cards that either had paper other than a backer, some had no stiching at all and were glued down. So here is the new instruction.

So many of you sew, stitch, quilt, appliqué, and everything else. But your cards must have either fabric with stitching or decorative stitching like cross stiching or embroidery stitching on them. Glued down fabric is no a fabric card, for this swap. We are celebrating the craft of sewing, decorative stitching or needle work. No paper except as a backer please. Let’s do a swap that includes them all, and is limited to Pink and Black

Got to go to Joann Fabrics tonight! After my main mission of finding the materials for Sami's First Communion dress, I found some fun pink, black, purple, and silver fabrics. Bought half yard of each! :jiggy:

03-17-2012, 08:48 AM
Wonderful! what did you buy for her communion dress. What will it look like

03-17-2012, 03:04 PM
I remember my first Communion dress. Our tradition down South is the white "little wedding dress" that is knee or tea length. I don't mean the kind of wedding dresses they have today!! We were all very covered up.

03-17-2012, 04:18 PM
OK, my mother wanted me to wear the outfit that my sister had worn. She kept saying we'll just take it in a little. My sisters dress was a size 12 huskey and I was about a size 7. So not only was it ugly with a waist and about 40 layers of toole under the skirt, huge, it was itchy. I wanted my own. So we went to the store and there was nothing left. Tucson at the time had 2 sears and expensive Boutiques geared for hispanics, for communion, confirmation, quincinera, wedding, and every Catholic church did this on the same weekend. So she went and bought the plainest white cotton material and planned on using a pattern that she had made all my school dresses from, and a hair band with a flower that she was going to take off and sew some toole to it. If I wanted plain that is what I would get, she said. So I really liked the dress and the flower, which I wouldn't let her take off. Here was the finished product. She was so embarrassed by me.

Cat's Cradle
03-17-2012, 11:07 PM
I think it looks cute on you.

Sami's dress will be tea length or a tad longer, depending on where I actually sew the hem. White crepe backed satin (almost heavy as taffeta) with a sheer overlay. Big sash on the waist that goes into a bow on the back. White frills along the sheer overlay and on the bodice. Sleeveless.

I bought a large bridal comb and enough sheer material and trim to make a matching veil. The slip is a light weight polyester that looks and feels like raw silk. I'm making it separate instead of attached to the dress. Want to be able to use it for other dresses. The slip ruffle is sparkle tulle. (Not that much will be seen, but it's a special touch.)

It's the white view in the middle ( http://www.simplicity.com/p-2169-child-special-occasion-dresses.aspx).

03-18-2012, 09:25 AM
Oh please show it to us with her in it when it's done. Sparkle tulle is always a plus when your' 6 or 7. She'll be showing all her friends

03-18-2012, 12:44 PM
Jennie, your stories are great. You did have a cute dress though. Cats cradle, you design sounds wonderful.

BTW, Jennie, I'm on your list twice. 'member, I tried to drop but you wouldn't let me!!!!LOL!

Cat's Cradle
03-18-2012, 01:47 PM
I did link to the pattern I'm using. :yes: When we were flipping through the pattern book Friday night, both Sami and I gasped and pointed at the same time when we saw this little flower girl dress.

03-18-2012, 03:44 PM
Absolutely all colors of pink. and black has to be somewhere on the card too. No white though and yeas I know how hard it is to find pink or black without white on it

Cat's Cradle
03-18-2012, 03:49 PM
I actually found some black, pink AND purple monochromatic prints at Walmart last night. They are out there. You just have to look. ;)

03-18-2012, 07:53 PM
I have tons of pink & black. My stash is beyond ridiculous. I found black poodles on pink.

03-18-2012, 09:29 PM
Those pooddles don't have any white do they? I have so much fabric my fabric area has over flowed, but it's all prints that have a number of colors. I'm just colorful.
You may take that any way you want

03-19-2012, 02:55 PM
Jennie, your stories are great. You did have a cute dress though. Cats cradle, you design sounds wonderful.

03-20-2012, 11:08 PM
Ok, I'll join. Requirements have changed though...I guess no glue. Sign me up.
Well it's never been a glue situation, always stitched. It's a sewing in some way project. Just had a few people who didn't understand my instructions which is my fault no one else's. Looking forward to seeing your cards

03-25-2012, 01:40 PM
Well If you like living in Australia, It's wonderful with me... Oh wait you mean for the swap. Yes of course. Please read the international part of the instructions, well you should read them all. Welcome to our swap, hope you enjoy it.

03-31-2012, 04:29 PM
Ok we are less than half way to full. Hmmmm Not enough people. What can we do, I have it everyone that knows someone that isn't already on the list invite them. Invite them really nicely. And then you can resort to begging http://www.gifs.net/Animation11/Animals/Dogs/Begging.gif

03-31-2012, 09:45 PM

04-10-2012, 09:35 PM
I have the requisite pink and black fabric. Now to decide on a black or pink focal point or quilt the b&p into a pattern by adding another pink or black fabric. I'm so happy to have found a use for this fabric that I have to join!

04-10-2012, 10:11 PM
So glad to have you Janjo33

Hello Is any one there http://www.graphicsgrotto.com/animatedgifs/comments/hello/images/agchello37.gif I'm bored with no one to talk to

04-12-2012, 02:04 PM
Poor Jennie, has no one to talk to. I really like nimo's cards. Very cute. I have yet to start on mine. I've been collecting pink and black fibers and threads. Maybe this weekend I will settle down enough to do something with them.

04-12-2012, 02:23 PM
Nimo's cards are great. I have fabric and have it cut into stripes, and have been too sick to sit and sew. This is week 9 with bronchitis and asthma. About what I can do is, sleep, type, and shuffle the tax papers so DH can do the taxes

Jennie, I know I don't message very much (still too new I guess but I will try harder) so I thought I would let you know that I'm almost done with my cards. It's been so much fun working with only pink and black, makes it more challenging!

04-14-2012, 04:40 PM
CherylS, really, really like your mini crazy quilts!

Donna they are beautiful. What about grey aide aida I might have some that i can send let me look

04-16-2012, 03:33 PM
Why don't you just get fabric paint to make your Aida purple? There are fabric markers you can use as well.

04-16-2012, 08:31 PM
YAY - inspiration! Thanks for posting your cards Nimo, CherylIS and Donnacr - all very fun!

I have backgrounds cut and pink and black fabric waiting my muse to speak - LOL

Hi Jennie, please add me to the list. I didn't want to miss out so have got some pink and black well under way.

04-19-2012, 06:38 AM
cherylS - I am worried that fabric markers would end up rubbing off on the thread as it constantly goes in and out of the holes (might make for an interesting effect :biglaugh)

04-19-2012, 12:15 PM
Donna I searched all through my aida cloth. The one I thought was purple isn't aida cloth it's waste cloth. When the girls were little I worked on their Christmas dresses, for like 4 months. You have so much time on your hands with a 5 and 2 year old. Anyway It was the first time I used waste cloth and they turned out so cute.

String on material not paper right?

04-21-2012, 10:02 PM
ACK!!! Time is flying by but I will get these cards out! Pronto!!!

Only 3 weeks to go this really flew by. If you are out of country I really need them to go out in the next 7 to ten days.

Thanks Kath for reminding me

I'm so sorry, but I have to drop out of this swap. The end of April has caught me completely off-guard (I've had major problems at work for the last couple of months, and haven't had any time for creative pursuits). I hate to do this so late, but I don't have any other option.

Wonderful Lindah, can't wait to see them

I sure Understand Francibelle, maybe next time

04-24-2012, 08:45 PM
OK, my cards will go out tomorrow, finally! I think I'm joining too many swaps, but they are all so enticing!

04-24-2012, 09:10 PM
You will do that only once then you will realize that if you join one and then do it and then join anoother it works great. unless it's a swap of only a few people then you have to join what you can'

Ok the swap is ready to swap as soon as the Post office get's in gear and sends Blue_eyes to my mail box. I've given everyone except blue_eyes Itrader.

I will swap them out as some as blue_eyes get here. All of the cards are wonderful

05-19-2012, 12:06 PM
Looking forward to getting the cards!

There are lots of great fabric artists here!

05-21-2012, 11:41 AM
OK I got the last set and Blue eyes they are beautiful thank you for the extra

The swap gallery is up

When I send you your cards please do Itrader and you rock rep points, so I know everyone has received their cards, and I don't have to go find you to ask.

Also as soon as this swap is done, and I know everyone has their cards then I will start the Purple/ silver or grey fabric stitching swap.

After that I think I want to do a theme fabric and stitching swap, and I want to pick animals. I'll let you know when the purple and silver /grey swap is up

05-23-2012, 10:14 PM
Oh animals sound fun! I am working on a hedgehog right now for a trade. Fabric and embroidery floss. turning out very cute
