Number of swap partners:1

For this swap, you will send one fabric ATC to one partner. Simple as that!

Now, the details:

ATC specifics: The ATC is sender's choice, so it can be made just for this swap or it can be one you have on hand, as long as it has been made by you. It must be the right size (2 ½ X 3 ½ inches or 63 mm X 89 mm), although thickness may vary. Your ATC should be sturdy, although that doesn't always mean stiff. The ATC can be any type of fabric ATC, meaning it can be 100% fabric, with a batting or interfacing middle; or it can have a cardboard middle; or it can be mostly fabric, with a paper or cardboard backing.

Who can join: This swap is open to newbies. However, if you are new (fewer than 20 Type 3 swaps), please finish your ATC before joining the swap and send me a picture of it (that way I know it's done and ready to go!). If you fail to do this, I will ban you. Anyone with unexplained 1s or 3s, please message me before joining and explain. Again, not messaging will get you banned. Seriously, if you can't follow these instructions, why should I believe you'll follow swap requirements?

Any other questions or comments or suggestions, please ask below in the comments, or PM me if it's urgent, because I may not see the comment.

Last but not least: If you've never made a fabric ATC before, or if you are just looking for inspiration, here are some tutorials:

I have had an iffy and questionable relationship with glue. Can somebody make some recommendations on what type of glue works best for adhering fabric to cardstock? Thanks!

Hi Emika : ) I'm new to swap-bot and I made my first ATC today. I'm not sure how to email you and send photos and questions that I have. I clicked "friend" button and hope this is correct. Looking forward to hearing from you. DeAnna V.

ktdragonfly - There is permanent fabric glue for sale at both Hobby Lobby and Joann fabrics [probably other fabric or craft stores as well]. You may also be able to use fusible webbing. This adheres fabric to fabric but I'm unsure if it works for fabric to carstock. DeAnna V.

Hello Emika -

I apologize but i cannot seem to find an "attach" button on swap-bot. I'd like to send you a photo of my completed atc for your consideration for this swap.

Good morning Emika ~

I emailed two photos of my fabric ATC to your yahoo account yesterday. Thank you for your consideration. DeAnna
