The Sweet Pouch Swap is an event hosted by yours truly and involves stitching up a gorgeous zipper pouch (or similar), including some delicious treats, and posting it off to your assigned partner. Simple and sweet.
THE DETAILS - Please read through this entire post carefully!
- This is an international swap, however this time I will try and assign local partners where I can due to increased mail volumes and longer shipping times at this time of year. This won't be possible in every case so be please be prepared to have an international partner.
- This is a direct swap between a pair. All pairs will be assigned at random by me.
- There will be a limit to participant numbers for administration reasons. It is first in, best dressed. Once we hit capacity I will remove the sign up form from the blog post.
- You will receive your partner's details by Friday November 14. Parcels are to be posted by Wednesday December 3rd.
What to include in your parcel:
- A Christmas themed handmade pouch
- Some Christmas sweets / chocolate / candy for your partner to enjoy. Please ensure that these are packaged goods to comply with customs & quarantine laws.
- A lovely Christmas card or postcard from your home town.
- Your contact details (email, return address) so your partner can thank you when their parcel arrives.
- Extras? Sure, if you like :) I often send a couple of crafty things or a fat quarter or two. Optional!
- You can see previous swap gifts I've sent for Round 1 , Round 2 and Round 3.

Make sure you follow the Sweet Pouch Swap Pinterest board as well - there are heaps of fantastic ideas pinned there which will inspire you to find the perfect design for your project!
Use this opportunity to make a new friend! So many of my online buddies are former swap partners. Email each other, check out each others blogs and social media. You might just be partnered up with a kindred spirit!
It goes without saying...but if you are busy with lots of other things like work, family, and other commitments, maybe this swap isn't for you. Every round there have been people who have failed to send a parcel and they have left their partner disappointed. Please only sign up if you are 100% committed to participating and completing this swap. Don't be flaky.
Thank you for reading through all the details. If this swap sounds good to you, go ahead and sign up! Please try and avoid completing the form on your mobile device - autocorrect has caused problems in the past with vital information like email addresses.
