Tag Archives: swap package


On Wednesday, I talked about Ravelry swaps in general.

Today, I want to share my most recent swap package!

This was a package for a Reducio swap.  It’s a group where everyone makes miniature Harry Potter… things.  The only requirements are that you send a miniature sock (in honor of Dobby), a miniature…something else, and the whole package has to fit in a small mailing envelope.

The ladies (and the few gents) of the Reducio group are all super sweet, kind and thoughtful (as well as giant nerds), which makes this swap a joy to participate in.  You know your package will be well-received by your swapee (as well as the whole group when the pictures are posted).

This month’s swap theme was Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes!  Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes is a fabulous joke shop in the Harry Potter Universe.  So, I included a bunch of teeny versions of their merchandise:

A micro Pigmy-Puff (he’s about a half-inch long):

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA “Patented Daydream Charm” (It’s actually a tiny paper diorama in an inch-wide tin):

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAnd, of course, a miniature sock (it fits nicely on my pinky finger).  I actually used my “Socks by the Numbers” pattern for this sock, but I used US0 needles and a Sock Number of 16!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI loaded these little guys up with a few other tiny Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes projects into a little box (it’s about 4″ square and 1″ deep),OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPrinted out an invoice,

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAnd sent it on its way!

I’m tickled pink by all the little projects in my package-  It makes me feel like a little kid making props for playing make-believe (except that Ive got better crafting skills than I did as a kid!).

Have you ever made silly stuff like this for a swap?  What did you make?
