    FAT ENVELOPES!

    Because of the generosity of the swap, the FAT QUARTERS are having a hard time fitting in the envelope. The Fat Quarters are FAT. So to reduce bulk I am removing my sheets from their baggies either all or some. They just will not fit within their baggies. Do any of you have suggestions so all the fabric gets where it is going safely? I am scared that the envelopes will loose their integrity before they get to their destination so stuffed full.

    After much fabric play, I took and refolded the sheets with as few folds as possible in the largest bag possible. It reduced the bulk some. I will tape them up tonight and see if the tape holds. I am still taking suggestions. As an after thought, for next time, for a larger swap group, we will have to limit it to the bare minimum size with the bare minimum sheets. Or perhaps if we have larger participation, we just go with 10 x 10 squares.

      Tape. Lots of tape!
      You can remove any of the baggies.
      And the one duplicate extra I included.
      Happy Quilting!

        Dawn, when I sent mine to you I put tape around the envelopes to ensure they wouldn't tear open. Wish I had sent a tyvek envelope rather than USPS cardboard, but that is the only prepaid they could give me (with $6.45 stamp). Also okay with me to remove baggies if necessary. Maybe roll the FQs rather than fold????

          Or for next time, enclose postage cost to cover medium flat rate box (Dawn, you can order these boxes free online at the USPS website and have the boxes sent to your house).

            Thanks! Yup, lots of tape. I will send everything. I hope I don't get grief from the post office. I have learned from our experience. It has bettered the next swap! I will get these sent on Sat, pending how well the tape holds. We are all rich in percale fabric now!
