DETAILS OF SWAP

Swap Description:

Who doesn't love bugs? Okay, okay, they're creepy and they're crawly, but they can be awesome if made out of felt or fabric or beads or clay!

Swap size guidelines:

This swap will be for 1 Medium and 1 small. There's so much going on this time of year that to be able to focus on making just one or two bugs should be all that is asked of you. Please plan on not including any extras unless you and your partner desperately want to. The medium item MUST be 3D while the small item can be either 2D or 3D.

This is a Craftster guideline ONLY: a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make (excluding drying, cooking, etc.), by physical size and by cost:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

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

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


No one likes to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, PLEASE DON'T SIGN UP.
If you know you will be late or unable to complete the swap please let me know ASAP.
Communication is a must. Everyone is required to post on the thread at least once a week to let me know they are still involved with the swap. If you do not post up it will be noted in your feedback. If you are going on vacation or will be away from the internet just let me know.

Delivery Confirmation is required within the U.S., please send tracking number to both your partner and organizer when you send. Please keep you mailing receipt if you are sending internationally.
PM both your Partner and your team organizer when you send and receive.

Please post pictures of what you receive. Your partner worked hard on it and we would all love to see it! If you cannot post up please let your partner know as soon as you know. Make sure you take pictures of everything you send just in case.
*Although posting pictures is not a requirement to receive positive feedback.*

Sent in my q Smiley

Spiders are no bugs because they have 8 legs, not 6 like insects have. But I think spiders are as creepy (and cute) as insects so I would have no problem crafting a itzy bitzy Spider.

For some Inspiration I found some pins on pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/candywells583/strange-bugs/

I think that we can expand the "bug" designation to anything creepy and crawly. If it makes you go "e-e-e-e-e-ekkkk!" it qualifies. OK?

Yeah, what she said. Cheesy We're using "bug" in a very general sense here. All insects/arachnids/creepy-crawlies are welcome.

just sent in my questions!

i added spider webs to my at least 5 bugs, im not fond of spiders, but a lovely web would be great. I made one recently out of wire, its a triangleish thingy that i saw on a pin that can fit in the corner of a doorway. I'd be up for doing a hoopla of a cool web or maybe incorproating other bugs in the web, like they are there for a meeting, and not to be consumed by the spider Smiley
