Details of swap:
So our fellow Craftster Cleanfeelin  was going through some of the recent swap galleries and was inspired to do a swap with T-Shirts.  and her idea is  doing a swap where the only materials you could use would be t-shirts (besides threads, accent pieces, etc) to create something new.  The new item could be anything from a bag, belt, rug, or even a new reconstructed T-shirt.

This is a really cool idea because its recycling, the materials are cheap (thrift stores, goodwill, your own closet), and you don't need to be an expert sewer to be in this swap (a lot of things don't need to be sewn).

This swap is for every T-shirt reconners of the world so it would be great if everyone was willing to send to different countries, and you must be willing to send airmail if sending internationally!!!! Sending should take no longer than 3 weeks !!( Because who really likes waiting for awesomeness)

FLAKERS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED  Angry IF YOU FEEL YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO 100% COMMIT TO YOUR PARTNER THAN THIS SWAP IS NOT FOR YOU.....

This will be a 5 point swap. Below are guidelines to help you out but as always discuss with your partner to make sure you are both happy! Everyone must make one Reconstructed t-shirt large or one medium item !! small and extra's can be something other than made from t-shirt material..

By Time
Big = 3 or more hours
Medium = 2 or more hours
Little = 2 or less hours

By Size
Big = A sundress, a shirt, a skirt, , a purse
Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
Big = $30 or more
Medium = $10-$30 dollars
Small = $10 or less

So if this sounds like the swap for you come on and fill in your Questionair and lets go....

Also here are some great websites on  making things out of t-shirts:
