I have recently become involved in the website Craftster, a forum for crafters of all sorts. They have organized swaps all the time, each with different categories, where you get a partner, make a few crafts, then mail ’em in. Last week I sent in the crafts for my first ever swap! The theme was the Walking Dead and I loved it. I had a great partner and can’t wait to participate in more swaps soon.
The first craft was coasters with covers of the Walking Dead books, one through six.
Since Rick was my partner’s favorite character, I also made her a Team Rick bag.
And lastly, a knitted zombie hat! The teeth were my favorite part in making this.
In return, my partner sent me this sweet t-shirt with Daryl and his nifty cross-bow screenprinted onto it. She also drew me an awesome version of that creepy hospital door saying “Don’t open, dead inside” (not pictured).
I greatly encourage anyone with a crafty streak to check out Craftster and their swaps.
