    Amulet Bags Due April 26th

    Swap Due Date - April 26th
    Signup/Withdraw Date - none, just COMMUNICATE!
    Number of bags - 3 for 3
    Number of Participants - 20 full! but ask if you want on a wait list.

    Amulet bags appeal to me for so many reasons. I love fabric, fibers, texture, embellishments, miniatures and magic. For this swap you will make three amulet bags. Size can vary but remember these are made to be worn as a long necklace to hold a good luck charm. I would think no larger than 2"x2" excluding embellishments/dangles. Below are some links for inspiration on Pinterest. But you're only limited by your imagination (and your stash of fabrics, fibers, charms and beads!)

    - Please protect your art in a clear sleeve or bag.
    - Please attach your info to the bags. Most importantly your username.
    - Write the swap name on the back of your envelopes.
    - Submit only art that you yourself would be pleased to receive.
    - International participants – Must be able to include US $$$ equal to what it has cost you in the past to mail a similar package to the US. I can return any unused mailing money via Paypal.
    - US Participants – Please include funds equal to what it cost to send your package to me. Approx $4.
    - I am going to reuse your bubble mailer for returns.
    Please include a label for return mailing!
    - Please do not mail your bags ON the due date. Mail early so they arrive by the due date.
    - If you need to withdraw let me know. Communicate, communicate, communicate!
    - Host gifts are cherished and appreciated but not required to play!


    PM me when/if you need my address.

    Players - when you receive your returns from the swap, remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from.

    Who'd like to play?

    Hi CiCiCreates! Isn't this exciting?! Something new. Just what I was looking for. I have some yummy new alpaca wool given to me by my neighbor up the street. I think I'll try and wet felt my first amulet bag. Here's some ideas I found on Etsy.

    Cool idea! Would you need to include the necklace part or just the bag?

    You could use a cord or braided fibers or something similar but yes it does have to include the necklace part.

    I notice these amulet bags can go by a lot of different names and terms. Mine will probably turn out to look more like the Bohemian/Gypsy versions than Native American. I will do my very best, though, not to make them too Victorian-looking (LOL - it's where I gravitate!)

    Honestly CiCi I really like the Boho/ Gypsy vibe. But a wide variety of styles would be welcome!
