Following the success of the FANTABULOUS HANDBAG SWAPs 1,2,3 and 4... here’s another opportunity to join in the fun! If you missed it the earlier rounds or just fancy another bag (and, tell me, who doesn’t?) then sign up for FANTABULOUS HANDBAG SWAP number 5! THE exciting, stunning, envious bag swap!

A swap where you you'll get assigned to just one partner and your simple task is to pull out all your delicious bag patterns and create the most perfect and beautiful handbag for your swap mate.

You need check your partner's profile to enable you to create (that means handmade, either by you or someone else) the best fit for them in terms of colour and bag type (they may need a tote or a smaller purse) but get your creativity hats on and make something stunning!

In the UK, a handbag is just a bag that you can use! It's up to you to check with your partner to see what they need.

So get cracking!!! This is an international swap but I figure the postage wont be too high as handbags are light.

May I add, newbies are welcome (we were all new once) but PM me first as you must complete your profile prior to signing up. I have had to either angel or find generous spirits to angel this swap in the past. So don't sign up if you can't commit. You must have an impeccable record or a good argument as I will not tolerate flakers! I reserve the right to knock you off this swap if your history is dodgy. Please PM me if you’re unsure. Here’s to another fab swap! Happy swapping : )

I have one comment about this swap. I do not like or use tote bags. So whoever gets me a handbag is one that has inside pockets and a closed top using either a zipper, snap, button or magnetic closure. Please do not send me a tote nag. I was so disappointed when I made a nice bag and received a tote bag.

Sorry you were disappointed with your bag in a previous swap. I do specify to check with your partner's profile in order to achieve a 'best fit' but may I suggest that once partners are assigned you pm them and explain your preference. Hopefully, they'll be able to accomodate yuor wishes. Hope that helps. K

Ooh, this sounds like fun! I just joined SwapBot and am now realizing that I have much more of my profile to fill out before I'm ready to join a swap. I'll go finish that up so that I can join this swap!

do the handbags have to be sewn? or are we ok to crochet them?

katiewoo 02/18/2011 #

@Rachclute crocheted would be lovely! x

Some participants got profiles without much info about their preferences. Is it ok to pm them asking? I want to sew a handbag they actually like, but i know some pepole dont want to know who sends to them and pming might spoil the suprise.

Just picked up your message - sorry about the delay! I think if they haven't got particularly full profiles then it is fine to pm them.
