This is a swap for those of us who love looking for long lost treasures in Thrift Stores/Charity Shops (UK) and love a crafty challenge.

The requirements are to make a minimum of one Medium item and two small items following the usual craftster guidelines on time, size, cost etc and tailoring the crafted goodies to meet the favourite period in time of their swap partner e.g 1970's (try not to be too specific)

Each crafted item must be made either using craft supplies/Instructions from thrift stores/your vintage supplies, those of you paired with someone that likes a period in time that is difficult to source for e.g 1920's should use what they can from thrift stores and make items that are inspired by your partners favourite era.

Examples of extras you may wish to swap:
Sewing/knitting/crochet patterns
Other craft patterns/instructions
Craft supplies e.g Fabrics/printed media
Accessories
Clothing (please wash before sending)

Welcome to snazzyjazzy, AbsurdAnnekuh and psychonmemphis the swap is filling up slowly but surely and with a good mix (so far) of era's for us to craft.

Might be worth listing on here what era you're into, just to give others an idea and say hello in the process.

Era wise, I'm into the 1950s.  I love the silhouette, with the full circle skirts for both the housewives with their shirt dresses and the teens with their poodle skirts.  Thrifting wise my newest big thing is vintage bedsheets.  The patterns are so pretty and they work so well for breezy summer dresses and for quilt tops.

Yay, the more the merrier, and for the records I'm into 1970's I love anything with a crazy floral or bold print in bright colours. Not so much a glam rock girl though more flower power!!  Grin

This sounds like a really awesome swap!  I must use my next slot that frees up for the IYP swap as I asked someone to 'dance' already Smiley  But...I have packages in the mail for 2 swaps...so...I will bookmark this and hopefully if it does not fill up once I have a 2nd slot, I can swing in here too!

Era wise, I'm into the 1950s.  I love the silhouette, with the full circle skirts for both the housewives with their shirt dresses and the teens with their poodle skirts.  Thrifting wise my newest big thing is vintage bedsheets.  The patterns are so pretty and they work so well for breezy summer dresses and for quilt tops.

I am into reconning old bedsheets into dresses and misc clothing and bags too!  Got some really great ones recently and may come in handy if I make it in here for signups in time.
