Shop the Swap Shop
Just like how it sounds, this isnt a swap were we wait for signups before the close out day. This is a place where you can be like..."hey you know what, I would really like that but I cant seem to make it myself." type thing.
Example...I would like a crochet bag made out of plastic bags or tshirt bags to tote my groceries in.
And then if someone sees your ad and is willing to make it for you, Just get with them to see what would they like you to make in return. Or when you put your ad up you can put down what you are willing to make for your item you requested.
I see this as an ongoing thing, no end since I know ppl will be looking around different craft sites and be like "oooo i wish i can make that!"
Use this at your own risk. I will not be able to go after anyone if they fail to send something to you since this isnt a one theme normal swap. But I can write up a "No go" list for those who are hesitant to make for a person. Just an idea. I believe in giving everyone a chance. I use the strike 3 rule.
Also you can post pics of the items you "bought" on this thread as well so we may go to that person who made it for the future.
Hope this is a good idea for you all! I am going to be posting an ad very soon if I cant figure out this one craft idea for myself.
I wish I read this before I posted on my crochet swap...but yes, this is a good idea...I'd even be willing to be a part of it. I told ezme she could make someone something else and get something crochet for her...but if this works..then okay! :-D
looking for: 2-3 tshirt totes for grocery shopping
willing to trade: handmade jewlery, plush toys, keychains, phone charms...you chose what item(s)
