Swap name: Blue Purse Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: crafty_dame
Sign-up date range: June 18, 2005 Ė July 02, 2005
Date to send item by: July 23, 2005

Limited to a certain number of people? no, but if it starts to get extremely popular, I might get overwhelmed and cap it. So if youíre interested, sign up right away!

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Most definitely.

All ages allowed? Or 18+? sure

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:

please check out the galleries for the hot pink purse swap and the funky black purse swap. Itís really awesome how creative and different the bags all were, even we were all using the same colour.

you could do blue on blue stenciling, textured blue fabric, blue sequins, cool blue upholstery fabric, blue appliquť, knitted or crocheted blue bags, basically anything as long as blue was the main colour in it.

Everyone will make one blue purse, and receive one blue purse in return.

There have been a lot of flakes lately in swaps, and a lot of half-assed swap packages being sent. Please donít sign up unless youíre willing to put effort into the bag you make. Iím using the same questionnaire as I used for the black purse swap, and I think it worked pretty well. I know it has a lot of questions, but please answer them with as many details as possible. I really want to try to match everyone with a partner who will make them a bag that suits them. Iím not guaranteeing that you will be swapping with someone in your own country, and Iím not going to automatically match Canadians with people overseas. PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS BEFORE YOU SIGN UP! YOU MAY HAVE TO SHIP OUTSIDE OF YOUR OWN COUNTRY! My biggest priority is going to be matching people up by styles and that sort of thing, not by geography.

When you mail your package, you need to let me and your swap partner know. Please send us a pm. And you MUST use Delivery Confirmation. I know that itís sometimes not possible, or too expensive when shipping between countries, but itís REQUIRED when youíre shipping within your own country. And please ask at the post office if youíre shipping between countries. Sometimes it is possible to get it, and itís only a few dollars more. If you are shipping to a different country, you MUST save your receipt. If your partner doesnít get their bag, and you didnít save your receipt, you are responsible for replacing it!

When you get your package, you need to let me and your swap partner know. Please send us a pm. Post pictures in the swap gallery if possible. If pictures arenít possible, please post a description in the gallery.

PLEASE TRY TO MAKE SOMETHING YOUR PARTNER WILL LIKE. Everyone has different tastes, and thatís fine, but if your partner says they hate red and blue together, DONíT make them a red and blue purse. It may seem obvious, but apparently itís not.

PLEASE DONíT FINISH YOUR PURSE BEFORE YOU ARE ASSIGNED A PARTNER. Please wait to see what your partner would like. Iím allowing three weeks between the end of sign up and the mail date, if you donít think this is enough time, please let me know.

After *drooling* over the pictures in the black & pink galleries, I totally want to do this. And even better, I just got a couple of sets of wooden round purse handles at JoAnn Fabrics for super-markdown price! Awesome for summer. I need to check my stash for blues, before I sign in ~ my fingers are crossed! LOL...

I signed up and I have two really cool fabrics to choose from. Yay! The pink and black purse swaps have been some of my favorite. I am getting ready for a craft show so I have been making purses like a mad woman!

Yesterday I fall asleep thinking about my blue purse. I can't start it until I know my partners likes and dislikes, but I have some cool ideas for this one.
Hawaiilove, the black purse was one of my favorite swaps too Grin

as long as you meet the requirements before the end of the sign up period, you'd be fine! that gives you 11 more days!
