FUTURE GALLERY LINK HERE: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=344323.0


Gibbous fashions is a fun way to reuse your scraps and make wearable art with lots of love, heirlooms, textures with playfulness and fun. Its the Apocalypse faerie style of the future. Its a crazy victorian woman on pixie stix and fun dip. Its fun awesome and well just damn cool! I am opening this swap with a long sign up period and with a long crafting period because it takes a while to collect, sew on and make a wearable work of art. I want plenty of people to join this swap its really fun! So get ready to be inspired, recycle and meet other altered fashion friends!!!!!!!! ( it is kinda important you know how to sew.....it is one of the main requirements *or at least attempt it *  This swap size is for 1 large, you can make more if you and your partner agrees for these take time collecting, piecing, manipulating and sewing....and extras are always welcome too *learning free motion embroidery and getting or having a darning foot for your machine helps out a whole bunch but its not necessary....*just a hint* any questions just ask and remember green is fashionable even if it doesn''''t make sense!  OH and you must take a picture in your made goodies and pictures are a must !!!!   

I am also gonna inforce a rule. Since there are so many new swappers and some people haven't posted very much i need everyone at least once a week to drop in and give a progress report and please talk with your partners! I don't want anyone to be flaked on! if you can't handle this new rule than please tell me and i can have you removed from the group without fault but this needs to be done BEFORE sign ups are closed....PLease read this i shall be sending everyone in the group a notice ok? thanks ~Woodland_faerie
Another thing is these things must be wearable! No glue gunnin' it the way through. I mean if you get your garment and never wear it thats fine but this is stuff is made to be worn get what i mean ok.....OOO another well if you wanted to make a poppet with gibbous clothes that may be funny! lol just gibbous your fashion yo!
 Oh...and don't go out and buy a ton of new fabric! Go to Thrift stores, use old fabric you have, steal your dads old work shirt (make sure its ok first), get donations use old clothes as bases....just dont' spend a ton of money. Thread may be your biggest expense but even then you can get it donated or whatever! *Freecycle is a great way to get all sorts of random fabric scraps look for one in your area! ok

 turn your cloaks for fairy folks are in old oaks'' --Old English rhyme


Come hop into the faerie ring *ring of mushrooms* or come listen to the sweet faerie music of the old times in the faerie mounds, or get lead into the forest by the faeries and come dance a day in all of your life with the faeries.  Actually this swap won't take that long. But This swap is to honor the love of all things faeries. Faeries are the good neighbors they are ones to be highly respected and regarded. Some are extremely beautiful and sweet while others are vial and vicious and ugly creatures that do very bad things.( I just got visited by the bad faeries i just did this whole post and somehow it just got deleted and boy i was feelin something ill towards them...) Basically this is a swap honoring the inner changeling, Faerie, Faerie loving feelings inside us! You can craft anything faerie-esc like clothing, poppets, dolls, bags, art, paper crafts, faerie houses, faerie garden decor, home decor....you get the picture you creative craftster you! And this isn't limited to any old faeries its also includes their family. For the realm of faerie aren't just the wing butterfly creatures they have their cousins the mermaids, nymphs, dryads, brownies, gnomes, fauns, green man and green woman, mushroom people. They are all part of the faerie clan.  http://faecyclopedia.tripod.com/navigate.html ( the letters are at the top of the site page to start looking on the faerie folk) There could be a certain artist or faerie author you love mine is Brian Froud and Charles De Lint for example. You might like movies with Faeries in them like The Fair Folk or The Fairy Tale or the Labyrinth ( I thought faeries did sweet things like granting wishes...) Or Peter Pan or Pinocchio...or the new TinkerBell movie (if your into that sort of thing) maybe your a lover of the Faerieworlds festival or Faerie con or other faerie type festivals. or you just love faeries they are quite good for the environment. I could ramble on for hours but we need to get this post on the road. we will have plenty of time to talk about our love of Fae!

   This swap is gonna be open to all countries *please specify if you are willing to ship to another country*, and be open to all ages * if you are gonna make a nude faerie please make sure your partner is of age and wants to receive something like that) make sure and take time to get to know your partner and craft a really good personal package of their likes. *please don't just throw something together have fun with this if you feel u need more info ASK THEM! (I had a girl in another swap receive a very *Cold* package meaning she made it totally unpersonalized and poorly like she just threw it together and sent out late even) and make sure that you have a good wist or a list of what you like give a lot of info TALK their heads off so they don't feel they are crafting for a white padded cell? lol YOU WILL NEED TO POST AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK with progress * you don't have to write a novel just check in ok? Please communicate with your partner crafting is a very spiritual thing and your making a friend! I will need DC CODES!!   ok.....

                 This swap is gonna be *** 1 Large ****1-2 mediums ( talk with your partner and tell me what your gonna do)***2 smalls**** and if you wanna gift with extra faerie gifties your more than welcome to but not necessary

yay fall
 What is your favorite thing about fall?  The cool air (which is a welcome relief in my part of Texas!), the sun setting early, leaves, baking, pumpkins, rain... an excuse to drink more coffee!
 
 Do you bake/ cook alot in the fall"  YES!  I love to bake pumpkin, spice and apple breads, muffins, scones.  We also like to make sugar cookies decorated like leaves and jack-o-lanterns.

 Does the leaves and weather change alot where you are living?  Yes, BUT ---- The leaves and weather don't usually change until late October, early November!  UGH!  And then, the leaves can all change and fall within one week!  How sad is that?  So when we have some fall weather, we really try to get out and enjoy it to the fullest, while we still can!

 Any great customs, celebrations, religious or memories about fall?  My family goes on nature hikes and letterboxing trips (http://www.letterboxing.org), collects leaves, acorns and sticks for art projects and decorating, we bake a lot together, and get ready for Halloween and Thanksgiving!

Is there a certain fall theme you like(ex: oak leaves, squirrels pies apples pumpkins....)  Fallen leaves (any kind!) and pumpkins especially, then acorns, squirrels, baking, coffee, spices
 
What kind of crafts do you do?  I mostly sew and embroider, but also stencil, paint, decoupage; maybe jewelry once in a while.  I cannot crochet or knit AT ALL.    

 What are your favorite colors?  Favorite fall colors -- orange, brown, green, black;  Favorite all-time colors -- red, aqua, green, brown, black, grey, some pink

 What do you want from this swap?  I'd love an apron, kitchen stuff (tea towels, hot pads, trivets, mug mats, coffee mug, coasters), scarf (yarn or fabric -- any kind!), bunting or garland, shirt (ladies XL), bracelet, earrings, grocery tote, pincushion, fall wall art/collage/decor.  
 
 What don't you want from this swap? also place allergies...  I don't need any journals, small totes, or pouches -- I have lots of those!   No religious, political or blasphemous themes, please.

 Any thing else you would like for your moderator or partner to know ?  I love recycled materials -- so please feel free to use them if you'd like.  I like textures, fabrics, retro and vintage, bold/bright colors and patterns -- fall/flannel plaids are a-OK, too.  I'm PM-friendly, and am looking forward to this swap -- and fall!
You can find my blog here: http://www.hello-refabulous.blogspot.com , and there's some info in my profile as well.  Sorry no wist.

 Does the changing of the leaves and the smell of pumpkin spice really make you feel enchanted? Or does backing a fresh apple pie with autumns harvest just make your day? Does racking up a ton of leaves in knitted and layered clothing make you feel spectacular.... ?  Well this is the swap for you then! Either it be sewn knitted polymere'd painted whatever, just to honor or love for fall and all its glorious bounty!!!!! This swap will consist of making a 1 large, 1 medium and 1-2 smalls(can team up with your partner to chose on that) and any extras you may feel moved to stick in there. One requirement is that we have people check in once a week for progress and must at least post once a week rake the "dead leaves" out (please keep in touch it helps to know you are there!) THIS SWAP AND EVERY SWAP SHOULD BE A FLAKE FREE SWAP.....so if you feel that you can't handle it then please don't sign up lol.....ok I am gonna have a limit of 16 people for this swap (Im not a fan being an organizer of a huge swap)
