Would you craftsters be interested in a "every part of my wardrobe swap"? It would probably be like a 6 or 9 month swap where each month there was a new theme for what was to be reconstructed or made. For instance:

January=earrings/bracelets/necklaces
Febuary=Shoes
March=Socks
April=underwear might be a sticky subject,:-\but why not. They wouldn't be made, just decorated. Unless you really wanted too.
May=Bag
June=Belts/Hair things
July= Shirt
August=Pant/Skirt
September=Pajamas

Let me know what you think. If anyone wants to organize it. It's fine by me!

THis would be really fun but I dont think I'd be up up for the comitment, and some of the things on that list I'd be ok doing but some of the others I would be stuck as I'm not that great at crafty-ness (yet!)

On the other hand a decorated underwear swap might be fun  Wink  Grin

What if we did it as an accessory swap so it was only 4 or 5 months long?
Example:

January=earrings/bracelets/necklaces
Febuary=Shoes
April=Socks and Underwear
May=Bag
June=Belts/Hair things

What do you guys think of that?

it might work out better for you if you did separate sign ups for each month.  that way no one feels committed to a year-long (or 6 months, etc) swap.  and if they do not want to participate in a particular theme (underwear or anything else), then they don't have to.  might be a good guard against flakers who are gung ho in the beginning, but fizzle out by month 3.

Thanks for the advice  sleepywalkin! I've never organized a swap before so I need all the advice I can get. So your just saying to have a swap up saying "Underwear Swap" and then the next month have a seperate swap for the "Belts and Hairthings", but let the people know who did the underwear swap that this is sort of a sequel to that? How does everyone else feel about this?

yeah, or maybe make the title - "create my wardrobe swap - phase 1"  or month 1, theme 1, etc.  and then details in the post.  that way people can easily follow it.  just a though!

What if it was kind of all combined into one swap where you did just one huge package or do you think people wouldn't be quite into that, or what if it was just a 3 month swap? People have done those easily before, no problems. I think.... Undecided LOL What do you think of that, but I like the phase 1 thing too. Would you be interested?

I love EVERY idea for this swap ESPECIALLY the ones which include clothing rather than accesories... I would SO be into making/finding and decorating an entire wardrobe for someone and sending it all at once...
or you could do it in THREE installments, make the crafting time longer and ask for three items for each phase.
any which way you cut it, I'd be in Smiley.

What about if we did it so at first your just paired up randomly and maybe that would be for the accessories part of the swap (im talking 3 parts here) You send off your stuff to your assigned partner AND you send  a pair of jeans or a skirt or something you would like redone along with that package. The partner recieving your stuff would then for the next part of the swap reconstruct your pants and send it back. I hope you get what I'm saying I tried to describe in the best way I can. Does that sound good..........or no? I'm so glad so many people are interested. It makes me happy. LOL. I probably wouldn't be able to organize until my very first swap is over (middle of august, I think) but then I would be happy to do it. Anyone interested in co-organizing?

Just had a thought. How bout we add hats and scarves to the list? I'm thinking this may have to be like a 5 part swap instead of three. Is there anything you guys wouldn't be really into doing on this list. You  wouldn't  have to make one of everything they are just ideas,but if it was just a focus on pants...duh...it would have to be pants.

     I just had another idea (man they are just flowing today Grin) How bout we could just make it a 3 month swap but we combine everything like: jewelry, bags, belts, hair things, hats, scarves, and gloves into the "Part 1: Accessories" category and then shoes,socks,underwear, and Pj's could go into "Part 2: The essentials(Anyone have a better name?) Then last, but not least the Tops and Bottoms could be combined into "Part 3: Tops and Bottoms. Then we could just ask for the 1st two categories people send at least 3-5 things? What ya think?

Heres the List:

earrings/bracelets/necklaces
Shoes
Socks
Underwear
Bag
Belts
Hair things
Tops (Meaning hoodie, sweatshirt, Jackets, t-shirt, etc.)
 Bottoms (skirts, pants, capris, jeans, etc.)
Pajamas
Hats
Scarves
Gloves

You guys got any other ideas for categories? Let me know or just post them here!

NOTE: Maybe we should have it where you don't have to make the bigger projects(pajamas,bottoms,tops) necessarily. You could just reconstruct or embellish them. This might be better for people who aren't good in areas such as sewing. So they could have an option. What do you think?

Hi FunkyOlive! Soooo are you interested in the swap? Would you be into just the 3 part swap or would you like it more spread out over time?

Retro_turtle, in order to be a swap organizer, you must have completed a swap and received positive feedback.  Your profile doesn't show that you've  been in a swap yet.

Unless you've got a swap in progress that will be completed before you begin this swap, someone else will need to be the organizer.  Sounds like a great swap!

I know you guys kind of already decided the format for this swap but I had a thought about this because I was wanting to get rid of all of the clothes that I don't wear anymore. I was going to take them to the thrift store but I thought it would be better to donate them to a fellow craftster/reconstructor. My idea was to trade a one bag of clothing and the person that received your donation would have to recostruct one item that you gave them and return it. They could then keep the rest for their own use. Anyway that was my though. maybe for another swap. I would be interested in this one but I haven't done a swap yet and I'm planning on my first one in september so  I may not be able to do this one yet.
I think you can only sign up for one your first time.

It is true you can only sign-up for one at a time. Maybe we could incoprorate your idea! We could just have the last month be a "Whatever you have left, and want someone to do something with" month. You could just send the item(s) you want to be reconstucted along with the pants so maybe they could start thinking in advance. So basically this would be kind of a naked lady idea incorporated. Does anyone have objections to that? Thanks for the idea Stray Cat! We probably wont be starting this until mid september anyway.

Um what do you think we should do? Maybe 3 months at a time??? Because that would work better with the Jeans, skirts, etc.
