Crafter's Block = My worst enemy

« on: May 19, 2010 07:12:48 PM »


So I was going through some of the recent swap galleries and was inspired to do a swap with T-Shirts.  I was thinking of doing a swap where the only materials you could use would be t-shirts (besides threads, accent pieces, etc) to create something new.  The new item could be anything from a bag, belt, rug, or even a new reconstructed T-shirt.

Here is my problem though, I am a newbie and have only done one swap on craftster.  So if you guys were really interested somebody would have to organize it.  I think this would be a really cool idea because its recycling, the materials are cheap (thrift stores, goodwill, your own closet), and you don't need to be an expert sewer to be in this swap (a lot of things don't need to be sewn).

If someone is willing to organize I would be more than willing to help you out.

Also here is a great website that got me started on my love of making things out of t-shirts:

Hmmm. I like this idea. But i am a swapping newb too. Still waiting for my first feedback since my package has not made it there yet. Tongue 
The best part is the repurposing...i love that. I bet it could be great.

Sounds like a pretty neat swap, except then I'd have to share my t-shirts and I'm just not willing to do that. lol. Call me greedy I guess.
