14  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / I Love BUTTONS Swap Sign-ups begin May 19, 2008 on: April 22, 2008 01:36:00 PM
Do you marvel at small shiny objects?  Do you enjoy the tactile sensation of running your fingers through a tin of pretty, pretty buttons?  Do you find yourself rescuing buttons from discarded clothing?   Do people think you're crazy when you describe your button collection in terms of volume or weight?  Wink  If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this swap may be for you.


This would be a relatively quick, smallish swap.  
Partners would swap 2 or 3 SMALL crafted items (made of buttons, embellished with buttons or button themed of course) and a small collection of buttons.  Maybe 15 to 20? The buttons can be new or vintage.  Discuss with your partner how many and what kind of buttons you would like to swap.  No pressure to send extras.

18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Sugar Skull Tote on: October 14, 2007 09:17:45 AM
I made this sugar skull tote for my (Dios de los Muertos) swap partner.  She has already received so I thought I would post here.
It is made out of a gray herringbone twill denim fabric to make it a little more sturdy.  I lined it with a cute cotton plaid print fabric.  I forgot to take a pic of the inside but the colors in the plaid coordinate with the skull colors.  I cut the skulls out of felt, fused the layers together with regular weight pellon wonder under and stitched each layer together w/ decorative silver metallic thread.  I attatched the skulls to the bag w/ the regular weight pellon and stitched around each skull for added stability.



My sis was kind enough to model the bag for an action shot.  Cheesy
Whilst texting of course!  Wink
