Swap name: Designer Homage BAG swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: aschnebly
Sign-up date range: Oct. 3 - Oct. 13
Date to send item by: Nov. 21 November 28th
Swap Gallery: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=84.0

Limited to a certain number of people? No

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yes

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages

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:
Are you a Marc Jacobs girl? Classic Chanel? Or just dying for something you saw at Anthro, UO, or on the pages of Lucky?  Here's your chance to have the handbag of your dreams!

Since we are all so crafty and creative, wouldn't it be fun to have another Craftster make you their take on your favorite designer bag?  Knit, Crochet, Sew, all genres are welcome!

Craftsters would be required to complete 1 large handmade item--a bag, not necessarily large in size, but large in effort.  Please be willing to put some time and TLC into your work!

Continue on to the thread to see links to bags other Craftsters have already done!  Plus I'm really itching to get some good designer discussions started!  I hope we can all have a lot of communication and fun so that we don't have any flakers!

Questions?  PM me or ask 'em here, I'm online every day.  This is my first time organizing, so feel free to gently point out my flaws.

Only a week left to join in on the fun and get a fab purse...

At the moment, I'm trying to make a version of the clutch at www.lorelienyc.com the one with the ribbons that cinch up the sides... I'll let you know how it goes!

Hey all!  How's it going?  How's work on our bags...?

I must admit, I have done nothing but think about working on mine!  Shocked

So now it's about three weeks before, and the way I produce, I need to get cracking!  I'm just wondering how it's all coming along for you guys and maybe just get a quick "yo!" back to make sure we're still all on the Craftster planet!

Awesome guys!  Thanks for getting back to me!  Unfortunately, ConcreteJungler had a family emergency and we wont be able to swap until later... so for now sounds like I'll be here just to oversee you... Muahaha!  Can't wait to see what you guys come up with!

I hope we can get more interest for a round two than we had for round 1!

Seaofstars and Strangegirl, how are things going with you guys?  The send out is a few days away, but if you guys need extra time, just let me know (since you're the only ones now Sad)  If you guys are in the same place and need more time, just let me know!

Things are going good, I think I'll need an extra day or so too; I've been pretty much swamped with school work I haven't had much time to get as much done as I've wanted. But I will!

Thanks guys for posting!  Would another week do and change it to the 28th?  That would take you past the craziness of Thanksgiving.  Let's say that for now!  I can't wait to see what you've come up with.  Congretejungler will show off our things when we can organize our swapping again Smiley

Hey all!  I've been a little (a lot) MIA because I had family in town, and I was just wondering how everything was going! 

I got back online a couple days ago to see that they were switching the server, and I couldn't get to my info for other swaps I was in so let me know if you need extra time due to that, or if you already sent out!  I'm going to make a gallery so we can post up pics...

i'm not done yet Sad

my sewing machine was pronounced dead when she took a suicide jump off my craft table. i did recieve an early xmas present and have a new machine, but i'm still a bit behind.

but, what i'm doing is taking a lot of time! and i promise it will be worth the wait strangegirl. i'm honestly going to need a few days longer. i'm so sorry! i'm usually much more prompt!

hopefully, since its just us two its not a huge big horrible thing  Undecided

and thanks so much aschnebly for doing this!  Smiley

Thanks for letting me know, seaofstars!  I know how crazy sewing machines can be... they are so frustrating sometimes!  I am glad for all of our sakes that you got a new one so we won't be deprived of seeing your wonderful creations for too long Smiley

As long as it's ok w/ Strangegirl, it's ok with me!

I haven't heard from her at all either, so I kinda just set things aside. Its about half way done.. I did a lot of embroidery on it, but I'd be happy to not have to look at it for awhile...  Cheesy

Im sorry you put all that work into it Sad  I guess you can always put it up on your etsy shop and charge big bucks, or we can post for a "swap angel-but not really angel" later if you'd like!
