I'm a fat, crafty chick. LOUD AND PROUD!

hmmm, sounds interesting, however, i dont think i'd want to wear something with a "fatness" quote on it.... is this the point of this swap? i'm not sure i understand..... like, does what we make have to say fat on them? or can they just be a normal thing, that would fit a fat girl....

I think what is meant, is not necessarily a "fat" quote, but a body-positive sort of thing. It's probably more about loving ourselves and reminding the world that beauty comes in all sizes.

i'm not taking part in this swap, but i wanted to say i love that someone has made an idea about it! i read the thread page and was like "fat girl swap?! i hope that's not hurting feelings!" and then read what it was about, which was the complete opposite Smiley. we're all beautiful regardless of how big or small we are, and it's really great to see people embracing that!
