Details of swap:

 Fall is almost here and one of the best things about Fall is the fashion, especially the BAGS.  So this swap is dedicated to that.  Make a hobo bag, tote bag, shoulder bag or any other bag that your heart desires.  BUT the catch is that you MUST incorporate some type of fall fabric(s) into the bag.  Basically when you look at the bag it should scream FALL.  A cute fall motif wont hurt either.  Knitting and crocheting are allowed as well.

Here are some suggestions for fall fabrics: Tweed, Wool, Suede, Velvet, Velour, Felt, Corduroy, Fleece, Leather, Denim

NOTICE: THESE FABRICS ARE JUST SUGGESTIONS.  YOU CAN USE ANY FABRIC YOU'D LIKE AS LONG AS THE BAG LOOKS LIKE A BAG THAT WOULD BE WORN IN THE FALL.  . 

Once you find out who your partner is I highly suggest you PM them and find out a little about them and what they may like. 


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER

Name of swap: 

Craftster username:

Email address:

Your real name:

Mailing address:

Are you willing to ship outside the U.S?

What kind of bag style will you make? (e.g hobo,messenger):

What kind of bag style will you like to receive?

Will you be able to post up pictures of the bag you receive?





Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.


Finally, After two weeks of sign ups here is what it boils down to:

PLEASE SHIP OUT YOUR PACKAGE IMMEDIATELY IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE SO YET!
1. evildeadgirl(received)........ star217(received)
2. yarnhag(received)............ mint(received)
3. gemjams(received) ........... kmac(received)
4. kidcompassion(received) ... domunique(received)
5. soccer21(received) .......... juliel85(received)
6. crochetfairy(received) ...... reethi(received)
7. raina(received) ..............islan d-princess(received)
8.  thumbkin (received)......... sunshinefairy (received)
9. neverseenblue(angel provided) ... sfsf(received)
10. boo(received) ................ neffytee(received)

I based partners on who could ship outside the U.S, what bag you wanted, and what bag you could make.

Here is some extra information/tips that you need to know

DELIVERY CONFIRMATION:
  Please try to get a delivery confirmation number from your U.S Post Office.  If you are shipping outside the U.S than you may not be able to do so.  Once you have shipped contact your partner and myself (NeffyTee) let them know the DC#.

DONT TAKE ON MORE THAN YOU CAN HANDLE: Please remember that you only have three weeks to craft your fall bag.  So take into consideration the size of the bag as well as embellishments,pockets etc...

SHIP ON TIME: We all have a life outside of Craftster (at least some of us do.lol) so I understand and Im sure your partner will understand if you cant ship exactly on 9/30.  But try to ship by the following Monday or at latest that Tuesday.  Otherwise I will leave negative feedback. Its only fair, to those that will have shipped on time.  IF FOR ANY REASON YOU CANT CONTINUE WITH THE SWAP PLEASE CONTACT ME WITHIN A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME SO I CAN FIND A SWAP ANGEL FOR YOUR PARTNER!

HAVE FUN: Everyone of us has a different reason as to why we swap.  But the main one is to just have a good time and possibly make a new friend.  So please dont stress yourself out (or your partner out!).  Its just a swap, its not the end of the world.  Smiley

My house guest will be leaving on September 9th (boo!), so after she leaves, I'll sign up if I know I will be able to sew and mail on time.

Sounds fun!

Alright Im feeling a little bit more confident.  Theres three people signed up so far and if I include myself that would make four.  So things are looking up.  JUST REMEMBER:  If you are interested that you must answer the questionnaire and send me it through PM's.  Also make sure you read the conditions for who can enter.  Thanks to those of you that signed up. Smiley Crystal

By the way crocheted bags are allowed Avian Flight.
