I have been admiring these little swaps taking place on various blogs I follow
and I have now decided to give it a go...
A little cross stitched envelope exchange!!
How about that?
You have to stitch a design and finish it as an envelope.
Send it along with a little card and little goodies such as floss, ribbon or buttons
Nothing big, as it's got to fit in the envelope you've made :)
Various tutorials are available on the French www, just type "enveloppe brodée tuto"
No theme but be ready to post worldwide.
No idea if any of you would be interested,
for those of you brave enough, please leave a comment stating you wish to take part
(Apologies, I will only accept people who have an active blog!!)
You have until the 1st May to enter.
Let's make sure, once you know your partner,
your envelope is sent before the 1st July
Some of you have asked if we have to send the envelope as it is by just affixing stamps or if we can put it in an envelope for safe/clean traveling purpose.
Well, I don't know about you but stitching takes a long time and I want my piece to
a/ reach the recipient and
b/ still look good
so I personally won't be taking any risks and will place my stitched envelope in an envelope
- I know, sounds a bit silly - but I'd rather be safe than sorry
So, I leave it to the participants to do it the way they'd prefer, it's entirely up to you :)
