It’s a one tiny thing swap, secret style!
What qualifies as a tiny thing?
In a nutshell, it’s a crafted item that is tiny in stature, but it is not classified as a small (in terms of crafting time, cost to create, etc.) item.

  • Your finished item should be 4" x 4" or smaller and represent your best work.
  • Send out one (1) crafted item only (absolutely no extras, please).
  • To keep things interesting, pick an alias for use in this swap :wink:.
  • Get to know your secret pal through their posts, pinterest likes, etc.
  • All questions for your secret pal can be routed through the swap organizer.

Need some examples? You got it.

A bracelet? Yes!
A necklace, bracelet and earrings set? No.

Mini oil painting that measures 4” x 4”? Yes!
A lap quilt? No.

One mini knitted sweater? Yes!
Two mini knitted sweaters? No.

I really want to join this one but I am traveling Aug 2-23! I have so much to do before I leave for work and home. I am going to see how much I can get done this weekend and next week. I could also take supplies with me since I will be in a car a lot of the time…hmmm…

@Lynx2Lancer my memory is fuzzy, but I seem to recall that you participated in one of the ott secret pal swaps on cster? Am I right? :slight_smile:

@AIMR oh, it’s totally doable. One. Tiny. Thing. :grin:


I’m sure I did. I’ve also hosted a few secret style swaps on the old site, too.


sent in my q!


Very tempted…


Know what else is super about OTT swaps?
There are endless possibilities for crafting!

For example, if you do your research and find out that your secret pal loves everything that is Halloween…well there you go. You can make something awesome with whatever medium you excel in. If you crochet, maybe an amigurumi black cat. If sewing is your thing, perhaps a mini art quilt. If you like playing with clay, a wee witch figurine would be sweet. If you dabble with paints, halloween-themed artwork would rock.

I may or may not be a smidge tempted to craft for this swap :laughing:


Please join! Ooh, you have to craft too, @loves2experiment !


this looks like fun!! sent in my questionnaire!!!

Just dying over the secret pal code names of our participants.


I had codename BorkBorkBork in mind for myself and I’m not even signed up yet…but I just saw that someone else has MeepMeep for their codename, which is exactly the same wavelength I was on! :laughing: If I do get off the fence, I’ll come up with another name.


What an odd bunch of code names! lol But, we are an odd bunch…lol


It’s perfect for us!


I may or may not have signed up (I totally did!)
I’ve never done OTT but am super excited to work on something tiny
