371  FAQ and Help for this board in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by MareMare on: February 27, 2010 04:13:41 PM
First and foremost: PLEASE DO A SEARCH BEFORE YOU POST A TOPIC ASKING A QUESTION. A lot of members have asked the same questions and most likely there is already a tutorial somewhere. Please make sure you do a thorough search first.

Q: Which board should I post on?
A: Good question! The Purses, Bags, & Wallets section is seperated into three categories-
General (completed): This area is for all kinds of bags- but not reconstructed items. They have their own area. Please remember that this section is not meant to serve as a place for questions.
Reconstructed (completed): If you created your beautiful bag out of a cereal or detergent box, kool aid packages, t-shirts or any other thing which had a previous life serving as a something else, please put your topic under this category. Please remember that this section is not meant to serve as a place for questions.
Discussion & Questions: Here is where you post all questions and discussions pertaining to purses, bags, and wallets!
Challenge Entries: Here you'll find all of the current information on the Bag Challenge! You'll find entries, prize info, how to donate prizes, etc.
Handbag Challenge Archive: Want to peek at previous entries and winners? Check out this board!

Q: Where can I get tutorials for bags?
A: Right here! Updated as much as possible, with over 70 tutorials from Craftster members themselves!

Q: I made a nice bag and want to sell it but I'm not sure how much to charge, where do I ask that?
A: Please put this kind of questions under Crafty Business Advice > Get Product and Website Opinions and not here. Anything like this will have to be moved to it's appropriate folder.

Q: How do I post an image?
A: First you must make sure the image is uploaded somewhere. Try using one of these image hosts: Photobucket,Village Photo, Image Shack // If you own your own domain, you may also use that webspace to upload.

In your post, press the "insert image" button and copy/paste the URL of the image between the tags. It should look like this:
Code:
[img ]http://www.yourimagehost.com/username/imagename.jpg[/img]


POSTING IMAGES WITH CRAFTSTER'S PICTURE HOSTING

After you upload your pics to your member gallery, click on thumbnail of the pic you want to add to your post and copy the UBB code into your post. You can find UBB code underneath each picture you upload along with the key words and title.

Q: Where are good places to buy fabric?
A: NEW! Check out our compliation of fabric websites here!

I personally look for fabric everywhere! Flea markets, craft sales, church fundraisers! I love to periodically check Ebay and see if I can find any good deals on a Fabric Lot. You can also get Fat Quarters at craft stores, like Michaels and A.C. Moore and try making a quilted look for your bag. For cheaper prices, try Wal-Mart chains. Super Wal-Mart tends to have a better selection than a regular Wal-Mart. Hancock Fabric has a ton of fabric, of every kind but pricewise you will tend to pay more. If you can't get to these stores easily, I strongly suggest using the internet. Use Google and do a search for wholesale fabrics, you may find some good prices and save some money with the shipping!

Please PM myself or kittykill to add any more questions to the list!

Thanks to jMi for compiling this list!

Here are my great pages from dorkgrl26! She sent pirate and outer space themed pages, I have the perfect pictures of my nephews to put in here! One of my nephews had a pirate birthday a while  back, so these will be great!

She also sent some great extras--a whole stack of boy themed pages that I am loving and more stickers in both of the themes she sent! Thank you so much dorkgrl!

I received from Bobomom! We had discussed doing a couple extra layouts and she sent me some really great ones! I usually scrapbook pics of my 3 nephews so she did great monkey and robot themed layouts. My nephews call me "Annie" and they call my grandma, their great-grandma, "Grandma Woody"  Cheesy






The flowers are embroidered! So cute!





Thanks so much Bobomom! I love these!

377  Quilt Block Swap (Sendouts EXTENDED to April 26) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by MareMare on: February 12, 2010 08:16:37 PM
Swap name: Quilt Block Swap

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: MareMare

Sign-up date range: Feb 12 - March 3

Date to send item by: April 26

Gallery

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No, but will need to end at a certain number of groups of multiple of fives, may close early or stay open longer to meet this.

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No,  but if you join you are agreeing to ship internationally

EDIT 3/2
Organizer Note:

Ok, no groups yet. Basically it's impossible to match people up because of the amount of people that said they didn't want to ship international. Here's the info: we have one Canadian swapper who is doing 2 or 3 groups and one Canadian swapper who is doing 1 group.

I'm making a rule change that for this swap you have to be willing to send internationally. I'm sorry! These will be very light packages, but if you simply can't afford it, just pm me and I will drop you from the swap, no prejudice, it will just be removed from your feedback. I'm sorry, but I spent half an hour trying to make it work, and it's just not possible with the amount of people we have in this swap.


Additional Age requirement? 18

Additional requirement: First time swappers are not allowed in this multi-sendout swap.

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES/NO
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES/NO
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES/NO
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES/NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES/NO
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES/NO
- If yes, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES/NO
- If no, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES/NO



Details of swap:

This is a swap for 12.5 inch quilt blocks*. People will be organized into groups of 5 and will send 3 blocks to each of the 4 other people in their group, for a total of 12 blocks per group. Swappers with excellent swap feedback may do more than 1 group (up to 3). Within each group it should cost about $12 total to send out to 4 people, with delivery confirmation (assuming within the US). Please keep shipping costs in mind when choosing your number of groups.

*If you fall in love with a pattern that yields a different sized block you can use it, up to 14 inches, but be sure to specify the size that it makes so that your partners aren't confused.

Everyone chooses their block or blocks that they would like made for them. It could be a specific block with an online link to the pattern or a general type (ie, stars). Keep in mind that people of different skill levels are involved, so please don't pick a super advanced block unless you also pick an easier block to go with it.

You will also choose your color palette. That could be a color family, a couple of particular colors, or something as vague as "brights" if you want to leave it up to the other swappers' interpretations. You maybe also/instead specify certain fabric patterns if they are vague enough, like plaid, stripe, polka dots, etc. Try to only be as specific as you need to be so that people can work from their stash as much as possible.

Measure your blocks before you send them out! They need to be 12.5 inches square. Send all squares in a ziplock style bag for protection.

Newbies are not allowed in this swap because there are multiple sendouts.

Please make sure to post in this thread to keep up with swap announcements. You will not be approved until you have posted here.

Please do not sign up until you have decided on your pattern and colors.

Communication is very important to me! You must pm your partner(s) and myself when you send out and receive. If you do not do this and I have to track that info down, it will be reflected in your feedback.

Since this swap is for multiple sendouts, I reserve the right to refuse anyone with bad feedback regarding communication and/or late sending.

Here's a truly ugly partial gel, the one I stuck out in the snow. It has goat's milk so I should have known it was a lost cause to try to make it not ge (but, conversely, was the reason I wanted it to not gel, to get that nice cream color). Fail.
