2  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / Make A Purse Swap - UK crafters needed! on: September 12, 2008 01:56:11 AM
Would anyone be interested in taking part in a Project Runway challenge style swap?
You will receive materials from your partner, use them to make a bag, then send the finished bag back to them.  You will receive a bag made for you with the materials you send!

Check this out for a much better explanation of the swap Cheesy

As there are 2 send-outs involved we're hoping to all be partnered with someone in the same country, so I'm here to beg for more UK people to join this fantastic swap!

Sign-ups close today, so I hope to see you there Smiley

O HAI! Duz u luf LOLcats? R u sad dat teh lolrus lost his bukkit?
If you waste hours on icanhascheezburger.com and ihasahotdog.com then this is the swap for you!

This will be Round 2 of the LOL swaps, but unlike Round 1 this swap will include cats, dogs and all other LOL creatures.
I will try to pair you up based on your favourite animals and LOL types, but please remember to discuss with your partner which themes are their favourite
I'm in your <noun> <verb>ing your <noun>
<Adjective> cat is <Adjective>
Invisible <noun>
Ceiling Cat / Basement Cat
Nom nom nom

If you're struggling for ideas, just search Craftster or Etsy for 'LOLcats' or 'cheezburger', you'll come up with plenty!
Previously suggested ideas include:
-screenprinted T-shirts/totes
-Shrinky Dinks
-note cards
-perhaps buckets?   Wink
If you find something particularly inspiring, feel free to post a link in the thread!

The Round 1 Gallery is also a great source of inspiration!

Requirements of swap:

This will be a pretty low requirement swap, as I know everyone is leading up to Holiday crafting at the moment.  You will send 1 medium and 2 small items.

You can send more than this if you would like to, but please discuss this with your partner first.  You should not sign up to this swap if you intend to send any less than this.
If you and your partner agree to some other requirements (ie. to substitute the 2 smalls for 1 medium) I would appreciate if you could let me know.

Here is a guide for how to classify your items:
By Time
Large = 3 or more hours
Medium = 2 or more hours
Small = 1 or less hours

By Size
Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewellery with four to five items, a purse
Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks, magnets

By Price
Large = $30 or more
Medium = $10-$30 dollars
Small = $10 or less

If you are unsure about what you are sending is 'worth', or have any questions, please PM me  Smiley

4  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / Stitch n Bitch Norwich on: June 30, 2008 03:33:35 AM
Does anybody go to SnB in Borders, Norwich? It's on next Monday and I'm wondering whether to go and what to expect.
Do you have to pay a subscription like other clubs, or is it just an informal meet?
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 70s tablecloth to fab bag on: May 28, 2008 01:27:47 AM
At a car boot sale last weekend I managed to pick up an old circular tablecloth with brown and orange print and fringing- very Abigail's Party  Smiley

It was only 3' across or so, so I just chopped it in half to make a bag. I kept the rounded bottom, and gathered the top down to around 15".

The wooden handle was a charity shop find, and I think it really makes the bag

The lining is cream, as any more pattern would have made my eyes fall off  Grin

This is the first project I've posted here, so I'd love to know what you think.
