Make a Purse & Fill It Swap!  -->GALLERY HERE


The idea thread is here, and includes links to previous rounds' galleries.

Swap name:  Make a Purse & Fill It (Round 6)

Craftster member who is co-organizing this swap:  green r my tear$
Sign-up date range:  December 18, 2010 to January 17, 2011
Date to send item by:  February 28, 2011 -- It's a long crafting period to ensure quality work!

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):  NO

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES/NO  NO
If so, which country?

Additional Age requirement?  NO

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES - green r my tear$ has already been recruited
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:

I'm going to clarify that a step further - when mailing to a swap partner within the same country, a Delivery Confirmation number is required.  So Canada to Canada, Australia to Australia, etc, DC# required, but if you ship OUTSIDE your country, then you simply need to keep your receipt


Details of swap:
Make a purse or bag according to your partner's likes/preferences, and fill 'er up with at least 5 items (fun stuff like wallet, checkbook cover, key fob, ipod case, to do lists, etc, etc, etc).   Minimum of 2 of the items must be handmade, but the other 3+ can be purchased...

Bags can be sewn, knitted, crocheted, felted - whatever!!  Questionnaire would include the kinds of bags you'd want to make as well as the kinds you would like to receive.

PARTNER TIME!!

OK, the wonderful co-organizer and I have split everyone into 2 groups.  I've tried really hard to match everyone up based on interests AND skills AND allergies, that's a big job!!  I hope you have a ton of fun in this swap.

So here's what we ask.  PLEASE:
  • I strongly encourage you to communicate with your partner to ensure a successful swap!!  The more your partner knows about you, the better she'll be able to craft what you like and need!!
  • take a picture of your parcel BEFORE you send - this will protect you in the event that the parcel goes missing AND it will allow us all to see your hard work if your partner is unable to take pictures!
  • send a PM to your group leader (either whats_her_name or green r my tear$) when you send and when you receive
  • post pictures of your RECEIVED goodies in the gallery
  • if you cannot take pictures of your received goodies, please ask your partner to do so -- please communicate with your partner before posting pics of your work - we don't want to spoil anyone's surprise!!
  • if you have any questions at any time, contact your group leader!!

Our wonderful co-organizer, green r my tear$, spent the evening going through the old swap galleries to compile a list of all the bag filler ideas that people used in the past - might help you come up with the perfect items for your partner!!  The items are:
  • scarves
  • journals
  • blank cards
  • sharpies (minis)
  • earrings
  • photo albums
  • hair accessories
  • body wash
  • bubbles
  • foot roller
  • bookmarks
  • highlighters
  • sewing kits
  • eyeglass case
  • keychain
  • postcards
  • brooches
  • magazine(favorite craft)
Other ideas she came up with include:
  • reusable bag
  • tea bag pocket
  • first aid kit

Hopefully this helps spark your ideas - I love the anticipation of a swap when I gather ideas - so many ideas, so little time!!  Cheesy

No problem - with a long signup period, there's plenty of time to join.
