THis is a SWAP for an "ANYTHING GOES" PIN CUSHION...Except that you should try to please ( or surprise ) Your Partner with something he/she likes.

This means you can use any type of container that inspires you ! You can also go back to the "basics" and do a pin cushion made with a TEA-CUP, or COFFEE CUP and SAUCER. Now, some will say that these are difficult to find , but they are usually very inexpensive if you go to a thrift store or yard sales. Or, you can make one from all sorts of containers like flower pots, stuffed toys, candle holders, sugar bowls, etc....although there are certain criteria that must be met. Please read the instructions below.

I will keep this enrollment open until OCtober 13th or until we have 12 people.
. I will post partners as soon as I can that day .... You will then have until December 5th , to make your item and mail it. ~

1. Craft a pin cushion using any kind of container that inspires you....If you need instructions, please ask. Lots of people here have some great ideas... You MUST use a piece of styrofoam (this helps to support the pins properly) covered with batting and then fabric. It is best to use a HOT GLUE GUN to adhere your cushion inside your cup or box or whatever you use....f you use a BREAKABLE CONTAINER, PLEASE PACKAGE CAREFULLY !!!It is no fun to receive a broken pin cushion..... These can usually be mailed in a Priority Mail box that is 7x7x6 and is FREE at the Post Office...using bubble wrap and styrofoam peanuts, you can mail this for the 1 pound rate...about $5.05 now - and if you buy through Paypal you will get free tracking on it. EVERYONE MUST USE A TRACKING DC#

2. I am requesting that this cushion be made by Checking to see which your partner would prefer.

3. There should be at least 4 stick pins added to your pin cushion and they must be at least 2 1/2 inches long - preferably use the 3" or 4" FLoral Stick pins found at JoAnns and other craft stores. There should be at least one stick pin with a CRICUT CUT on it, or a CRICUT CUT should be on your base container. LONGER stick pins are found in the FLORAL SUPPLIES of most craft stores. I also have them for sale in my ETSY store and MB members get 10% Off with the following code - CRICUTMB
go to www.etsy.com/shop/barbshandiworks these Pins are $4.99 for a pack of Pearl topped #144 Pins , or "crystal/diamond" topped ones are #100 per pack.

4. Please use a variety of beads, ribbons, stickers, or whatever your creative mind desires...make your creation unique and pretty ! Remember that your partner should be proud to display your handiwork on her desk or table. I request that you do NOT use plastic beads...and PLEASE USE A GOOD QUALITY GLUE. Some people complain that their embellishments fall off due to people not buying good glue. Hot Glue applied directly to ceramics will eventually fall off...Look for glue that will adhere to a "NON-POROUS" surface. If you are unsure of what to get, there are people in craft stores who will help, and also you can ask for help on the thread from your fellow members. Personally, I find that SCOTCH BRAND 3M Quick Dry adhesive works well for most surfaces. I also HOT GLUE some items, depending on the surfaces. If you are gluing metal , please buy the right kind of adhesive for metals. Hot Glue does tend to POP OFF of ceramic coffee cups...it is better to use glue made for stones and jewelry.

5. You are responsible for obtaining your partner's addy through a PM. You will mail your item directly to her and please be sure to pack breakable items securely. We don't want them to arrive broken.

6. After you have mailed your item, Please post DC # on this thread for all to see. Then, please post a photo of your item here for all to enjoy as well .

7. FLAKERS will not be tolerated. Please don't join if you have no intentions of following through.
If you have ever flaked on one of these MB SWAPS you won't be allowed to join.

8. Keep in touch with your partner and fellow pin cushion fans through this thread...AT LEAST WEEKLY.

9. WHen you sign up, please send me your contact info with your name, addy, email and a phone number through a PM. If you have been in my last 2 SWAPS I already have this info on file.

10. Once enrollment closes, check in to see who your partner is ASAP !! then contact her through a PM.

11. If you are a "NEWBIE" to swaps, you will be required to mail first before your partner sends hers. That way we should not have anybody get "FLAKED ON".



PRIZES: At the end of the SWAP we will take a vote for the BEST Pin Cushion and that person will win a prize.
I get no freebies from Provocraft or any other manufacturer and I do not add my name to the prize drawings. THis is just my way of saying "THANKS" !!



Prior to sending your pin cushion out, I am requesting that each person post a photo of their pin cushion and their DC# on the thread. THis way, I hope to eliminate the problem of anyone being "flaked upon".

Trying to decide if I've already filled up all my swap time for the next several weeks.

This looks really great, I've done them so much lately and I'm loving them.

I'm going to think about it for a little while...I'm trying to finish up several other swaps and then I'll let you know. Flapper Still have a few days to decide, right???

I am signed up for Rhonda's altered ticket swap. Shall I post some pics? I am getting ready to mail these this week. They will be early as they are not due until November. That is my only other swap.

I may play, I need another pin cushion.
Let me think on it awhile....
I love the tea cups and I also used a small copper
planter one time that worked out pretty too. Those
are super easy to find at Sal army or thrift shops.
