Harvest Banner Swap!

The intention of this swap is for partners to swap a harvest themed banner.  Who doesn’t love a little festive fall decoration? Banners can be themed Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Harvest/Autumn.

Participants get to request what their banner “says.” Here are a couple ideas:

Happy Halloween
Got Candy?
Trick or Treat
Welcome Fall
Welcome Autumn
Happy Harvest
Happy Thanksgiving
Give Thanks

Many links to tutorials are found below to give ideas on how to begin. Banners should have letters appliquéd to them unless otherwise noted by partner. Therefore, skill level for this swap is advanced beginner.

This is a secret swap, meaning your partner doesn’t know you “have” him/her and you don’t know who your partner is. So – SHHH! Keep it a surprise!

All discussions and photos will be posted in our swap Flickr group.

Swap Expectations

-Stash material may be used. Participants may not spend more than $15 on additional supplies (not including shipping).
-Materials should be predominantly fabric based. Fabric can be cotton, wool, or felt.
-It’s up to participants if they want to include extra “goodies” for their partners (i.e. candy, fat quarter, etc.). It’s not a requirement but is not prohibited either.
