This swap is for all the Plus Sized girls out there who would like some really great crafted, wearable items. Sometimes, it is hard finding fashionable or flattering things in a Plus Size. Admired some crafts on Craftster, but couldn’t make it or didn’t have the time? Or just afraid to ask for clothes in a swap because you feel guilty that yours will require more fabric/yarn? This is the swap for you! Everyone deserves to look fabulous, no matter what size they are!
Every person will make things related to BBW. This can include stylish items in a Plus Size, things with inspirational or funny quotes, BBW necessities, or anything you can think of that relates to us big and beautiful gals. This is a 6 point swap, but each swapper must have at least one medium and one large wearable item (sewn/recon, knit/crochet, jewelry, stenciled/silk screened, etc). All 6 points should be crafted. Since such a big part of being a Plus Size is finding clothes that fit or are flattering, wearable should be an important part of your package. THIS SWAP IS ABOUT LOVING YOUR FABULOUS SELF & EMBRACING YOUR BODY.
I gave us a pretty long signup period and a long crafting time on purpose, this is not so we can procrastinate but to give a lot of time for thought and care in our crafting.
Round 1 Gallery:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=328967.0Points Guidance:
Small Item = 1 point
Med Item = 2 Points
Large Item = 3 Points
For new swappers there might be a bit of a confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item, so here's a handy guide:
Small = By time, 2 or less hours of crafting. By $$$, $10 or less. By size, Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks…
Medium = By time, 2 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $10-$30. By size, one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf…
Large = By time, 3 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $30 or more. By size, A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse…
This is not totally set in stone, but is a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost.The Rules
