Make a Purse & Fill It Swap!

There was some talk back in the early fall about a make a purse & fill it swap, but it doesn't seem to have gone anywhere...  I'd love to get this one off the ground if there is enough interest, with a signup period starting right away (see timeline info in bold down below)...

So the rules of this swap would be fairly simple:
 - make a purse according to your partner's likes/preferences
 - fill 'er up with at least 5 items (fun stuff like wallet, checkbook cover, key fob, ipod case, to do lists, etc, etc, etc).   Minimum of 2 of the items must be handmade, but the other 3+ can be purchased...

Bags can be sewn, knitted, crocheted, felted - whatever!!  Questionnaire would include the kinds of bags you'd want to make as well as the kinds you would like to receive.

Signup periods can be up to one month long, so if I start the signup period on the 18th, I could leave signups open until January 17th.  To ensure a high quality swap, I'd give everyone 6 weeks for crafting.  That means the sendout would be February 28th, and hopefully that's far enough in the future to give everyone ample time!!

Let's do this!!  Cheesy

NEWLY ADDED:  I found some of the past swap galleries & put them here for easy access:
Round 1
Round 2
Round 3
Round 4
Round 5

Was that all the rounds?  I'm unsure, but I'll keep looking.  I guess that might make this round 6, but I'm a new organizer, so does it count as round 6 or not - I dunno...Huh

I was sorry I missed the last round. I wouldn't be able to join until January though, as that is when some of my swaps would be over.

I would love to swap for things kids could do in the car on a long car trip (3 girls ages 5-12). I can knit, crochet or trade yarn.

I'm interested...but the one I did before had it where you made a purse and then had to craft x amount of items and buy x amount of items to fill the purse...if you make the fillings a medium that is basically just one item to go in the purse...kwim?
Sevs usually organizes these so you might check her profile to see the details of the swap that she does.  But I'll hopefullly see a make and fill a purse on the swap section soon!! Been watching for one of these!

Great point - I changed it from Large/Medium to simply read that it needs to be filled with at least 5 items as per previous rounds...  Thanks for the tip!!

I would be interested depending on the sign up/send out timing.  Seems like a lot of swaps coming up immediately after the holidays so perhaps the time could be pushed back some? 

I thought about doing something like this for Christmas gifts.  Smiley  I'll keep an eye out for this one.

I'd be interested in this after the holidays. Maybe End of January or February?

I just added timeline info to give you an idea of what you'd be looking at...
