I loved the thrift store pic revamp http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=35171.160
and was thinking that if I received a great pic like those I wouldn't want to just hang it in my house,
I would want to really show it off and carry it around. Thus, the thrift store purse revamp swap was born.

How it will work:
You buy a purse, totebag, clutch, ect. at a thrift store.
You mail it off to your swap partner.
Your swap partner mails you a bag.
You both revamp, re-do, glamorize, make-over and art-ify each others bags and return them.

No restrictions on the type of bag you choose, anything mobile you can carry your wallet in, except *please* no suit-case size bags due to shipping costs.

Please post a "before" pic in the gallery if you are able to.
 
Send out your "before" bag by 11/11/2005.
Return the revamped bag by 12/02/2005 (please factor in shipping times)
Please PM me when you ship your original bag and when you ship out the revamped bag.

If you'd like to participate please PM me the following:

1. Name of swap: Thrift Store Purse Revamp Swap
2. Your craftster name:
3. Your email address:
4. Your real name:
5. Your mailing address:
6. Let me know if you'd rather not revamp a leather bag.
7. Do you want to ship internationally?

The time has come
The walrus said
To talk of many things-
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax-
Of cabbages and kings.
And why the sea is boiling hot
And whether pigs have wings.

This sounds awesome!! I can't really sew but I'm sure I can spif-a-fy a thrift store bag-- sounds like fun. I don't want to sign up and be the odd numbered swapper but if someone else signs up I definitely want to participate.

Don't worry about being the odd numbered swapper - Sign up and join in the fun!
If there is an odd number I can send out and revamp twice, if no one objects. I have three bags waiting for the round II and III of this swap *giggle*

you could paint it...or sew appliques onto it...you could cover it with a mesh fabric or change the lining in a completely fabulous way! You could cut the leather into strips and weave another fabric into it....just a few ideas...some more intense than others...but I think its possible to revamp a leather bag too...maybe... Undecided
