Details of swap:
Ok everyone, do you need some reusable shopping totes/bags? Do you get tired of using the ones you see in stores that are usually too small and not washable? And feel ill at all the waste of plastic bags, but don’t want to pay for an ugly bag with some store’s label on it? Well this is the swap for you!
We will be making our partners some stylin new bags so their groceries can travel in style ...i mean, who would want to travel in a plastic bag right? 

We're going to change this round up a bit & give the option of having multiple partners (to increase the variety of bags).  The minimum requirement is one bag, one partner.  If you'd be interested in more than one partner, though, note that in the questionnaire & I'll do my best to accomodate groups of up to 4.  So, for example, if there were 4 people, each would make at least one bag for the other three people in their group.  As always, you have the option of doing more than the minimum, but please discuss & agree on it with your partner(s).

Requirements are:
1~ you must make your partner at least  ONE REUSABLE BAG, you will have the option to discuss making more when talking with your assigned partner as well as indicate if you are interested in making one or more on the questionnaire.

2~The bag MUST BE WASHABLE. (hey, things spill so its a good thing  Wink)

3~You can sew, crochet, or knit it....(if you are one of the talented people who want to also make a fused bag, discuss this with your partner please to make sure they are ok with it since many are not washable)

4~  PM your partner within 48 hours of being assigned and keep communication going. Communication is key to a successful and fun swap~! 

All must check in by posting or PMing myself, donniesgirl, at least weekly and PMing myself and your partner upon Sending ( DC# IS REQUIRED IN USA AND KEEP YOUR RECEIPT IF INTERNATIONAL) and include the dc # as well as let us know when you have received and post pictures of your wonderful package ASAP so all can see it and let your partner know you appreciate their thoughtful package!

5~ in all PMs, please include REUSABLE SHOPPING BAG (question, sent, received) in the title.

6~ HAVE FUN~!

...
