Its Swap Time..Sign up here for the PhatSheep Handmade Button Swap




Anyone fancy taking part? I’ve never organized a swap before and as I have a BIG love for buttons of all shapes and sizes I thought this would be a fun swap to set up. Here are the swap rules:

Each person will make for their swap partner a set of 6 co-ordinating or themed buttons, sizes can vary.
The buttons can be made in any-way you choose with whatever material you like, only rule is they must be useable by the recipient so please bear this in mind when you are being creative!

Also include something handmade which features/uses a handmade button (this doesn’t have to match the set you are already sending your swap partner but can if you like).

As with all swaps please feel free to include some random extras but it is not necessary.


I’m thinking January 25th for the sign up deadline and February 14th (romantic Eh?) for the Post out deadline. I’ll keep you updated here if there are any changes to these dates. To sign up please leave a comment below and e-mail me with your postal adress. I’ll be back in touch with you partners details after the 25th Jan.

Also a BIG thankyou to everyone who took the time to vote for my fabric over at Spoonflower, I'm currently in a very respectable 2nd place, so we will have to wait and see what happens in the next 24 hours!

Oh go on then! I found you via Jennyflower and I also 'know' Incy!

I'm generally a paper person so it could be made from paper or even fimo as I've had a dabble at that in the past.

But would love to take part as I'd love to use my swop stuff on my cards!

I shall now attempt to email you with my details - if they don't make it to you, let me know!
