Details of swap:

Since the "I Want A Fall Bag Swap"(gallery link below) was so successful I thought I would go ahead and continue on to the next season, which is Winter.  You can make any type of bag your heart desires. BUT the bag should look like it is for the Winter/Holiday season.  Basically when you look at the bag it should scream WINTER or you can gear it towards the holiday.  A cute winter motif wont hurt either.  Knitting and crocheting are allowed as well.  Keep in mind that it is the holiday season, so you may want to consider giving the bag you receive to a loved one.

Suggestions for bag styles: tote, hobo, clutch, wristlet, messenger bag, evening bag, shoulder bag

Here are some suggestions for winter fabrics: Tweed, Wool, Suede, Velvet, Velour, Felt, Corduroy, Fleece, Leather, Nylon, Mohair, Cashmere, Chenille

Fall Bag Swap Gallery: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=123125.80

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 11/27.  But try to ship by the following Tuesdayor at latest that Wednesday.  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.   

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:


Name of swap: 

Craftster username:

Email address:

Your real name:

Mailing address:

Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?:

What kind kind of bags can you make?

Don't forget to note the new swaps rules. Organizers are required to put "In Progress" in the feedback form immediatley upon swapper approval.
