**Details of swap:**
This swap is a little different in that I am not setting a point requirement.  However, you must make one decent sized purse and include at least 3 goodies inside said purse.  You and your partner can send more than that, but I'll let you discuss it.  But there are a few rules I'd like everyone to follow:
1) You have to make the purse.  You can recon items, sew, knit, crochet, whatever, but you have to make the purse yourself.  You cannot purchase anything that started life out as a purse.

2) You need to send at least 3 things in the purse.  I would prefer these things be purchased at the dollar store or the dollar sections at places like Michael's and Target.  However, if you are dying to make a wallet or something for your partner, that is also acceptable.

3) Do not spend over $5 at the dollar store.  The reason I chose dollar items is to keep the swap fun and affordable.

YOU MUST GET DELIVERY CONFIRMATION WHEN SENDING YOUR ITEM.  If you are sending to a different country and D/C is not available, be sure to save your receipt from the post office so you have a record of sending your item.

As always, be sure to post in this thread at least once a week so we know you are working on your swap items.  Also, be sure to take pictures of what you make before you send it in case your partner can't post to the gallery.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Holy cow, you guys!  I was surprised to see so many questionairres in my inbox!

Most of you are saying that you don't want to ship out of the country.  However, we do have a Canadian swapper, and just in case we don't get another Canadian how many of you are willing to ship to Canada?
