I put a long crafting time on this simple swap because my June is already getting busy!

I’m always inspired by other people’s list of themes, so feel free to post your themes in this thread.

So far I have animals: otters, hedgehogs, cats, etc

I don’t wear felt badges ( I hang them on my art wall) but thought this was a cool way to add a safety pin - scroll way down

Oh this would be fun. But I’m moving in June so would rather not join a swap happening that month. Maybe next time!

I love this! I have missed swapping, but my life was not in a good place for a while, and then I got COVID (poor hubby got it at work, we think, and brought it home before showing symptoms), but I am finally starting to ooze out the other side. I love the idea of this swap, as I adore working with felt and embroidery together, and I love the very straightforward requirement. I am definitely going to work on my Q for this one and join you all. I can manage ONE badge and make it awesome! Thank you for the long crafting time!

And for inspiration, one of my favorite Instagram accounts that I follow is a lady who makes felt pin cushions and needlebooks, and things, and the tops of her pin cushions are circles of felt with gloriously done layering and embroidery: @fabricandink. I aspire to use felt as beautifully as this!

This is totally how I feel as well. I swear someone in my house has been sick since Jan. We can’t catch a break! Glad your house is feeling better!

I forgot to share my themes…they are pretty simple…kind of the same ones I always do…nature, space, science, abstract/scrappy…Star Wars and Lisa Simpson for the more specific ones. I always want something different/unique but space when it comes time to choose themes!

ETA:

Wow! She does beautiful work!

Here are my themes, I changed them up a few times, trying to narrow it down!

  1. Pride and Prejudice
  2. 80s/90s pop
  3. Grease
  4. Crafty - I like to sew, crochet and cross stitch
  5. Ryan Reynolds (:heart_eyes: can a person be a theme?)
  6. Spring
  7. Vikings (we watched Vikings, The Last Kingdom, Norsemen)
  8. Spreadsheets

I know it’s a bit of an eclectic mix! My school couldn’t timetable my chosen subjects in my final year as they were all so different (maths, chem, physics, English lit, German, and Art and Design)

Haha…what a fun list!

My themes always read like a dissertation, with footnotes and links to reference images… :rofl: I think it’s partially because I know some of my stuff is off the wall, and not as likely to be know by everyone; especially with age or cultural differences, I try not to assume, so I tend to detail-dump. I’m also super happy to receive a lot of details from partners, though, although I will lovingly work with whatever comes my way. :grin: :+1:

Haha. I’ve seen a version of her list from other swaps…it’s pretty epic.

I am so the opposite. I probably give my partner too few details! :see_no_evil:

Hi @audity! Hope you’re doing well!!
