Make a Pouch + Fill It - R2 (Send Outs Sept 25, 2023)

Lettuce Craft member who is organizing this swap: Kwality570
Sign-up date range: August 14, 2023 - August 25, 2023
Date to send item on or before: September 25, 2023
Limited to a certain number of people? No


Do you need a new pouch to store things? Do you need a new project bag? Do you need a new pouch to store your pouches? Then this relatively easy and small swap is for you!

For this swap we will be making one pouch + at least 3 filler items based on your partners questionnaire.
Your pouch may be knit, crocheted, woven, sewn, zippered, or drawstring, but must be crafted. Fillers may either be crafted or purchased, but will be extra smalls in terms of time or $ (1 hourish or $5 or less each). Examples include candy, stickers, washi tape, lip gloss, a fun new set of pens or markers, bookmarks, or a pair of earrings. This should be a relatively simple and easy swap!

Tracking or photo of international receipt will be required for this swap
Despite the fact that the packages may be flat, tracking is still required. This will hopefully avoid any lost packages and delays for partners to receive their pouchy goodness!

If you meet these conditions, you can join in on the fun:

  • Has been a member for at least one month
  • Has posted at least 15 times
  • Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple at a time
  • Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps
  • Does not have any negative feedback
  • Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old
  • If within the US, understands that a Tracking number is required for this swap
  • If sending internationally, understands that a shipping receipt with address must be captured

To participate, fill out and return the questionnaire below to organizer @Kwality570.

Ooo, I’m distinctly interested in this one! Would it be weird for me to wish for a pouch full of spooky season goodies?

Not at all! Totally acceptable since that stuff is already out in stores. :slight_smile:

I was happy to see it last time I went shopping. I can’t lie; I’m so looking forward to fall.

This looks like such fun! I’ll have a good look at my diary and see if it’s going to work out date-wise.

Oh I just gotta join!!! I did the other round and got the most amazing zippered pouch from @Fonduie ! Its just so beautiful! It now lives in my purse to help hold all my random bits and bobs! The past swapped forced me to learn a new pattern and I probably made over 10 of those drawstring bags after I made the first one! I’m ready to learn a new pattern!


Yay! Welcome to the swap!!!

I have one of those drawstring bags from the STS and I love it. I can’t wait to see what you make this round.
