This stems from a recent discussion about wallets.  I love hdoglovesyou's tutorial for making a 'super cute wallet'.  For those of you who have missed out on the wallet tutorial, check out all the awesome wallets that have been crafted:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=20925.0

Is there any interest in doing a wallet swap, based on the wallet design in hdoglovesyou's tutorial?  Obviously, slight modifications to the original design would be acceptable.  If you read (or have read) the entire thread, you'll see that there have been all sorts of add-on features (buttons, magnetic snaps, coin purse alteration, etc.) made by various crafters. 

For this swap, participants could fill out a questionnaire indicating their favourite features in a wallet and folks would be paired up accordingly.  That way, everyone makes and receives a wallet that they would love and use.

I'll be glad to organize if there's sufficient interest in this swap Smiley

<- count me as interested!

Perhaps the craftster wallets w/ tuts can be listed on the questionnaire and you can indicate the type you perfer?  jMi just assembled a great page of all the historical wallets and bags with tutorials here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69911.0

Isn't that GREAT?!  MAD PROPS to jMi!

I tried typing a reply and computer froze on me *mutter mutter cuss cuss* 

Yeah, I think it'd be great to use different wallet designs Smiley  If this swap is a go, I'll make sure to pair up folks based on what they're willing to make and what they'd like to receive.  My goal is to make sure that all participants receive something they'd love to use!

I'm soooo glad that jMi took time to list and update all the tutorials on wallets Grin

I don't sew, but I can make some killer duct tape wallets.  Could we include duct tape, or would it just be fabric wallets?

I'm thinking about this - it would be fun!  I'd totally be up for non-sewn items, like duct tape wallets Smiley

I think duct tape wallets are cool Smiley  Perhaps someone who sews would like a duct tape wallet, while someone who makes 'killer duct tape wallets' would like a sewn wallet.  The possibilities are endless!!!

I would love a Wildberry Skittles/duct tape wallet, but it'd have to be pretty durable.
Although, I really want a fabric one...

So many options, eh?  Yeah, I'm torn between a really cool duct tape wallet or a cool sewn wallet.  This is just a thought but perhaps certain participants who meet a list of criteria (e.g. this will not be their first swap, those who have less than 3 swaps listed as "In Progress", etc. - we can discuss this!!!) can have 2 partners if they would like to receive a duct-tape wallet and a sewn wallet.  I don't know...it could get messy (if people flake) and people might be offended by the criteria  Undecided  Like I said, just a thought.
