I thought of this idea while I was at work. I work as a welder.  I was wondering if there are any other craft women on here that have a manly job and work mainly with men. I am one of the only 2 girls that work where I work and sometimes it gets a little lonely. So I was thinking about as swap for other women in this situation.

Things that could be made I was thinking could be girl looking tool belts, costumed painted tool set, work gloves made girly things like that. I know I would like a girly welding hat that doesn't look stupid.

Another reason I thought of this was because it is so hard for me to find things for me to do my job right all the clothing have to wear is to big or doesn't fit right and I am tired of it. I can never get gloves that fit right because they are all to big!

Any other ladies out game for this??

I think there are good ways we could use that besides just a career focused thing...like girly gardening tools, girly toolbelts, girly headlamps!!
I worked at UPS for 5 years and had my own tape gun with rinestones on it and I had a nice box cutter on a beaded necklace.  I think any woman would enjoy having a sturdy toolbox that wasn't grey and yellow or black and red....
what do you think?

i'm a student, and i spend a lot of time in the foundry with all the guys casting 8 ft tall bronze scuptures - i do small/light metals but i'd still be interested in this swap.  the tool belt is what caught my attention lol.

I just started gardening (like, for the first time in my whole life) and I can think of a lot of tools I'll need...

My job is kind of gender-neutral. But I have a "manly" hobby: I sail.

And I do most of the "manly" repair jobs at home. (DH cooks, though. Good trade!)

Ha Ha!  This is great!  I'm a Purchase Requisitioner/ Parts Supervisor for the Maintenance department in a platic packaging company. And the only woman in the Maintenance dept!

I unfortunately wouldn't be able to do another swap right now though.  As I am already in one and it's my first.

Great Idea though!

I think that's alright PSMommy, I'm not yet able to do a swap either but keep checking back, I have a feeling we might get it together to do this one day Smiley
