Gibbous fashions is a fun way to reuse your scraps and make wearable art with lots of love, heirlooms, textures with playfulness and fun. Its the Apocalypse faerie style of the future. Its a crazy victorian woman on pixie stix and fun dip. Its fun awesome and well just damn cool! I am opening this swap with a long sign up period and with a long crafting period because it takes a while to collect, sew on and make a wearable work of art. I want plenty of people to join this swap its really fun! So get ready to be inspired, recycle and meet other altered fashion friends!!!!!!!! ( it is kinda important you know how to sew.....it is one of the main requirements *or at least attempt it * This swap size is for 1 large, you can make more if you and your partner agrees for these take time collecting, piecing, manipulating and sewing....and extras are always welcome too *learning free motion embroidery and getting or having a darning foot for your machine helps out a whole bunch but its not necessary....*just a hint* any questions just ask and remember green is fashionable even if it doesn''''t make sense! OH and you must take a picture in your made goodies and pictures are a must !!!! I am also gonna inforce a rule. Since there are so many new swappers and some people haven't posted very much i need everyone at least once a week to drop in and give a progress report and please talk with your partners! I don't want anyone to be flaked on! if you can't handle this new rule than please tell me and i can have you removed from the group without fault but this needs to be done BEFORE sign ups are closed....PLease read this i shall be sending everyone in the group a notice ok? thanks ~Woodland_faerie
Another thing is these things must be wearable! No glue gunnin' it the way through. I mean if you get your garment and never wear it thats fine but this is stuff is made to be worn get what i mean ok.....OOO another well if you wanted to make a poppet with gibbous clothes that may be funny! lol just gibbous your fashion yo!
Oh...and don't go out and buy a ton of new fabric! Go to Thrift stores, use old fabric you have, steal your dads old work shirt (make sure its ok first), get donations use old clothes as bases....just dont' spend a ton of money. Thread may be your biggest expense but even then you can get it donated or whatever! *Freecycle is a great way to get all sorts of random fabric scraps look for one in your area! ok
