Details of swap:
The ugly Christmas sweater, once the fashion item of grannies at Christmas, now the joke of the room with everyone wanting to be the one wearing the ugliest sweater.  This is one of the best I have seen:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ywt0GhaXuu0

Let us have fun making one for each other.  Here are the details:

* You will send a clothing item to your partner for them to uglify.  Could be a sweater, sweatshirt, t-shirt, etc.  I would very strongly encourage you to find a lightweight version as you have to mail this them and then they have to mail it back.  For those in the USA, flat rate boxes may help with the cost of shipping.

When you receive the clothing item, you must:

*Do five smalls.  Either add a crafted item or do alterations, but there must be a minimum of 4 crafted items added to the sweater (this could include a painted motif or embroidery, I dont consider that an alteration).  If there are 2 or more alterations you want to do, those will be extra.  Also, if you do alterations, take care not to make the item smaller, at least not without talking to your partner first.  Items should ideally be sewn on (just simple needle and thread if need be).  If you want to attach items another way, talk to your partner.

* Make an additional 4 crafted items for your partner for them to add themselves. When you get your clothing item back, must add at least 3 of them.

* What fun is a swap without the pictures at the end?  You need to take pictures or find someone in your life to take pictures for you.  Ideally we want to see a picture of YOU in your new ugly Christmas sweater, but I will accept of picture of just the ugly Christmas sweater.  Really really make an effort to get a picture of you wearing the item.

* I will make a best effort to partner people within the same country, but this can not be guaranteed.  Certainly you can choose not to ship outside your country.  If I have an imbalance, I may have to start PMing people. See my comments above.

* I will have weekly check-ins via PM.  Please keep the communication good in the thread and with each other.  I know life gets busy, so at minimum I expect you to respond to the weekly check ins and ideally have weekly, if not more often, communication with your partner.  That is what makes swaps fun, getting to know new people.

* Most important rule of: HAVE FUN!!!!

I think that half of what makes these sweaters so funny is who is wearing them... I wish I could find the picture from the ugly sweater contest we had at school last Christmas! I didn't participate last year (I forgot all about it! Eeep!), but this year is a different story.
