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.

Yeah I am getting excited!

There are lots of bags I have wanted for awhile... I need to go through my bookmarks and my old magazines and narrow it down.  It's not going to be easy!

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!
