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 smalls in terms of time or $ (2 or less hours or $10 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.

I should have looked at Magpie’s list before I made mine. I would have added adult merit badges for sure!

And buttons! I love interesting vintage buttons and also the ones that come in fun shapes. My granddaughter loves to play in my button stash and see all the interesting buttons I’ve collected.

I should also have added metal sewing machine bobbins to my list.
Oh well.

I said ATCs and tinted lip balms, lotion, miniatures (of course), jewelry…

I wanted to remind people that not all pouches have zippers, if your nervous about making a pouch with a zipper. Drawstring bags count too, or snaps. You can get creative!

You and your partner can also agree on a loose interpretation of pouch. If you expand your definition then you will find all kinds of non-zipper options.
