Details of swap:
 Ok ladies it’s time for some new undies! Remember those cute ones you had when you were little, with the days of the week? Yea, those! Well, we’re making them for the “big girls” now! So go out and find your favorite kind, and be ready for some Crafty Undies!

You’ll be sending 7 pairs of NEW undies to your partner for them to make into Days of the Week Undies, and then send back to you. This means we will have TWO sendout dates! Sign ups will close 31 October, and I will have partners up by November 2nd. The first send out date is 8 November, so you have 6 days to get your new plain undies and send them out. Once you receive your partners undies you have about 3 weeks to craft and send them back out. Keep in mind, you can go buy your undies now to have them ready!

Sendout Date #1: November 8
Ship your NEW boring undies to your partner by this date, don’t forget your DC#!

Sendout Date #2: December 10
Ship your partner’s NEW AWESOME undies back by this date, don’t forget your DC#!

You MUST post in this thread, at least, once a week! PM your partner & I, BOTH, when you send & receive. Pictures are a MUST! If you are not able to post pictures, please let your partner know so he/she can take pictures before sending! If you are going to be late sending for ANY reason, let me know immediately! We don’t want any flakers, so if you don’t feel you can meet the requirements listed, and post as needed, please don’t join.

I'm interested in signing up because this looks super fun, but with my particular ample behind the likelihood of undies someone else picked for me actually fitting properly is pretty low. Sad  Would it be possible to do it more like the original swap and have the partners send each other self-purchased undies to decorate?  I mean, maybe not everybody but if there was another person with similar reservations I'd be happier pairing with them!  I would hate for someone to buy what's technically my size and work hard on them, and have them be unwearable!

I would much rather send blank ones to my partner too.

I'm going to fill out my questioneer, but I won't send it in until we can figure out if we are sending them or if they are choosing them. (I'm picky!)

I would also be more amped to sign up if I could send my partner the undies.  I would like to prewash them in my own soap since I have sensitive skin and I have a particular brand and style I like and some undies have elastin exposed and I am allergic to it.

I am a giant pain in the butt Sad

Oh man, I'm glad I'm not the only one!  I felt like such a dork for posting like I did, but I feel much better now. Wink

Same here....I'm a chubby girl and like a certain kind of panties and I'm not sure you can find them in our countries.. I'd much prefer to buy them myself. We could have the buy your 7 panties the same as the sign up deadline then we can send our undies when we get our partners. Then our partners can design them and get the material ready while they wait for the blank undies.

I'm still thinking about this one....but I love this idea.

I would definitely be in if we could buy our own underwear then then ship it!  A little less stressful, knowing we would be getting 7 creatively made pairs of underwear that already fit perfectly.
