HAPPY BIRTHDAY CUPCAKES
For 2011, I joined a birthday cupcake swap. I'm in a group of 50 gals swapping, so for my birthday I'll be receiving 49 fusible cupcakes. We are only swapping the applique portion, so we can each select our background fabric and stitching to be consistent throughout our project. The swap was on the Scratchingpost group, the group for Sindy's FatCatPatterns.
I made up my first 12 in no time. That will take me into April. These are small and fit in a regular envelope with regular postage. I bought some birthday cards at Dollar General to use for the swap. I think this will be really fun!
If you are interested in how to prep fusible appliques for a swap (without the background) you can read about it on Sindy's blog here.
For the past 2 years I've been in a B'day FQ swap. It ran May to May and this year we decided to end in May and start up again with the calendar year, to save confusion. Since my B'day is in July, I wouldn't have received anything in 2011, so this will be a nice replacement swap for me for this year.
