Softie Swap!

In honor of my friend Missy's double nomination to the Softie Awards I am going to do a Softie Swap! Sign ups for this swap will close April 8 and you'll have to send your partner your softie by May 15. This is a really long time! I am doing this because I know that softies are not something that you can just whip up in a day or two. Ok, maybe you can, but I can't!

Here's the lowdown:

Email me at lily_clairedesignsatyahoodotcom with your name, address, blog, and email.
Do this by April 8.
Mail your swap by May 15 or let your partner know if you'll be late.
Softies should be handmade, but they can also be vintage. NO NEW STOREBOUGHT SOFTIES. No matter how cute or vintage looking they are.
You may use a pattern from someone else, but if you are able to do an original design that would be fab, too.

But most importantly, go to the Softie Awards page and vote vote vote! It'll also have great ideas for your softie!

Oh and go over and sign up to do Missy's First Aid Kit Swap, how fun!

**NOTE** Anyone and everyone is welcome to do this swap no matter their skill level. The point is to have fun and get to know other crafters. Also, a softie can be a doll, animal, animiguri, cozy (tea cozy, coffee pot, ipod etc), pin cushion, pillow etc...Check out Softies Central for more ideas. Join the fun!

I'd love to participate, however I'm a amateur... Do you have levels? I'd be sad if my swap partner was disappointed in whatever I might make!!
