Crafty Swapper Offers One of a Kind Critters

Nov 15th 2011, 19:12, by Swapsity

The creative mind behind Swapsity’s Swaptopus has turned her eco-friendly talents for crafting custom-made critters into swap success. Using recycled materials, Lisa made the Movie Music Eco-Swap mascot, which debuted at the Live Green Toronto Festival and was a huge hit with visitors of all ages. She has also turned other cuddly creatures into some amazing trades.

Putting her passion for sewing to work, Lisa carved out a niche for herself by repurposing old clothing, fabric scraps and unwanted stuffed animals into new, original stuffed animals, purses and bags, and dog accessories. Aside from trading with Swapsity for the Swaptopus, she’s traded a Mrs. Happy Hippo for a book, coat and scarf, swapped a Mr. Whale for a pan of yummy brownies, and got a cute starfish crystal necklace in exchange for a Mr. Teddy Bear.

With four Swapsity swaps behind her, Lisa is no stranger to swap success and is thrilled to see others benefit from something she loves to do.

“I love being able to still feel like I can provide something to people even though I can't work and don't have much money,” she says. “I also enjoying seeing the joy that simple stuffed animals can bring to a person or child.”

For swappers looking to boost their barter options, Lisa encourages them to do as much as they can to get noticed, take every swap opportunity that comes their way and expect the unexpected. She’s ready to craft her next creature and is open to any interesting swaps, especially a new tattoo or body jewellery. Check out Lisa's eco-friendly critters on Swapsity or Facebook and make her a swap offer!
