    Embellished Fabric Hearts with MY fabric and embellishments!Due July 4

    Due date: July 4, 2019
    Number of hearts: 3 for 3 only
    Number of Participants: 20 - NO WITHDRAWALS
    Medium: Embellished fabric hearts with my fabric and embellishments!!!

    I recently participated in an embellished fabric heart swap hosted by smidgen, which was absolutely wonderful and a very fun swap! I wanted to do one again and was thinking about how I could make it a little different...so I came up with the idea of providing the players with MY materials to use!

    Requirements are to use my fabric for at least one side of the heart. You can use your fabric for the other side if you wish, but feel free to use mine for both sides! I'll provide at least ten different pieces of fabric for you to choose from. You must use at least two of my embellishments for each heart, and beyond that, the sky is the limit!

    The fabric will be approximately 4" squares. So the hearts will be sized accordingly When finished, they should be lightly stuffed. Please do not glue the embellishments on - they are so lovely when they are stitched on! Finished hearts should be returned to me in plastic bags with your username and other info on them. Please share pics of your finished hearts so everyone can appreciate them!

    Since I will be sending my materials to you, dropping out IS NOT AN OPTION!!! Please consider this before you commit to the swap. Also consider the due date and plan to return the hearts on time! I like to be timely in my returns to you.

    Postage:
    Please reimburse me with $4 in cash or the equivalent in stamps to cover the initial cost of mailing my materials to you. This is for U.S. mailing only; others will be based upon their destination and I will let you know beforehand if you are interested. Please include a LARGE self addressed label for your return mailing; I will provide return envelopes.
    Both US and international artists must pay for their own return postage; either well concealed cash or US stamps.

    Estimated postage costs:
    US $3-$4 for three hearts (Make sure to send what it cost you to ship to me.)
    Canada $9
    everywhere else $13/$14??

    As always, a host heart would be treasured but is not a necessity for playing. Please leave iTrader for me when you get your returns so I know they arrived safely and please give rep points (“you rocks”) to the people you received hearts from!

    If you have any questions, whatsoever, please feel free to ask.

    Okay, who's ready to play?

    I'm lurking If this were at a different time, I would probably join. However, I have travel plans mid June to mid July... so I can't make that commitment of a no withdrawal swap. I do want to see all the amazing artwork I know will be posted (because I'm a glutton for punishment). If you do it again down the road, I will likely jump right in

    I got my goodies today too! Already sorted the bits and pieces into what I think I'll use for each heart.
