Details of swap:
Have you grown out of your old t-shirts? Or maybe you have too many t-shirts than you know what to do with. Or maybe you like to buy all those fabulous vintage shirts at thrift stores for a dollar each without realizing you dont know what to do with most of them. Or finally, maybe you just love Michaels Bargin T-shirt section a little too much. If you said yes to any of the above, this swap is for you! This swap is all about cutting, destroying, washing, repurposing, transforming, painting, glitter-ing, and whatever else you can think of to do with a T-shirt!

For this Swap, you must take at least one t-shirt and transform it. This is not limited to just stenciling or reconstructing it into a different type of clothing. You can go as far as taking a t-shirt and turning it into something totally different like a book bag or a pillow. The Skys the limit, but you must start out with at least one t-shirt.  If youre taking more than one t-shirt and making it into one fabulous thing, thats okay too. If you are planning to use more than one t-shirt to make several items, please let your partner know.

i am sorry for being a bad, rude swapper. i am sorry to all the partners i flaked on, and all the feelings i hurt. i feel really guilty, my life is messed up right now and i got greedy and selfish. i didnt think about anything but getting nice things. i am so sorry everyone. i'll be leaving now.
