Welcome to the joys of fake swapping, Wulf! And, I'm considering fake joining the fabric basket swap, too. They're on my to-do list, but I keep putting them off for other things... Maybe once I finish my fake eco/recycle/hippie swap I can give them a go.

And, thanks for the info on the use of no detergent! The science geek in me knows that it's really the water that does the cleaning, and that the detergent just helps to make the water's job a little easier, in some cases. But, the clean freak in me somehow won't listen to the science geek... yet...

Oh!  The Fabric Basket Swap sounds like a great fake!  Wish I could, but only have my hooks and yarn at the moment.....will have to find another swap, but eagerly waiting to see all the goodies!

Firstly, everyone's stuff is looking awesome! And I "recieved" today for my winter hippie swap!
I'm really happy with how everything turned out Smiley
Group shot:

Bleach pened jeans (I was so happy to save these jeans, they're my favorite and I spilled toilet bowl cleaner on them while cleaning), a tree of life necklace and matching bracelet in autum colours (I'm thinking of doing one for each season, this was my first time doing wire work and I love it) and a bag to carry my shoes to the gym.
Close up of the jewerly:

And as extra's I made stitch markers out of old penguin earings, but they're currently lost in my knitting basket Wink
I tried to get an action shot but lighting/dirty mirrors would not cooperate  Roll Eyes
Can't wait to pick my next fake swap!

Your partner rocks! Wink

I love the design on the jeans!

Wulf--I accidentally FORGOT to add detergent to a load of wash and realized that they still appeared to be cleaned!
I do think we tend to over wash our clothing...I started cutting the amount of detergent I was using in half and nobody got sick or looked dirty...seriously, how dirty can we get sitting in an INSIDE office?  Very interesting...

I am with craftADDchick...I think for me, it is more psychological than scientific...it would take some getting used to...but I am willing to change since my 2012 goals include being a lot less wasteful and more independent of commercial products and foods!

My only question on not using soap is though it would get the dirt etc. out what about smells?

Love the jeans!  Great save. 

Also enjoying reading about all the laundry detergent comments.   Lots of great thoughts.

Ditto on the jeans! I have a pair with a bleach spot near the cuff. I keep meaning to fill it in with a Sharpie, but your idea is so much more fun!

Oooh! I love this craft-along! Is it okay if I fake join a swap to make a package not for myself, but for a friend not on craftster? I've been wanted to craft a care package for her for months but I keep putting it off for one reason or another. This could be exactly the motivation I need to get it done!

I don't see why you couldn't. If not, you can always regift the package your partner sent you.  Cheesy
