I was able to find the original Make a Bag and Fill it Swap on The Way Back Machine. (Only the first page of the gallery was saved)

I love to show past swaps!

Wish we could see more of the gallery; bet there were some really cool handcrafted bags on there. I have an out-of-state visitor right now, but plan to sign up once they’re gone.

I was hoping more of the gallery was saved as well too. Glad you’re going to sign up! :purple_heart: I’ve been really excited to host this swap. :grin:

I’m interested if people are willing to mail international, I know it’s not in everyone’s budget

If no one else wants to, I can always be your partner. It would be funny since you were.my partner when I joined this swap in Craftster. You have my first sewn bag. :purple_heart:

I’m interested too - but like @Edel, I don’t want people to feel obligated to mail international.

We’d get it figured out for sure. :purple_heart:

If you have two international people, most of the time, the organizer can pair those two together to make it cheaper and faster for everyone. Just tell @Manders you would like to be partnered!

That’s very true. :blush:

I would happily partner with both @Edel & @jemimah but I’m always hogging you 2 for myself.

Also pinging @Bunny1kenobi and @photojenn, who expressed interest in the initial discussion on the other thread. And @gozer, I’m also hoping you’ll post pictures in the gallery if you make a bag for yourself without officially participating in the swap.
