Details of swap:
In this swap, one partner (the yarnie) will be crafting one large OR one medium AND one small amigurumi (you can also discuss with your partner potential other sizes/combinations).

Sign-up limits:
Since each yarnie must be matched with a poppeter, it is important that we have the same number of each participating.  For that reason, sign-ups will initially be limited to 12 yarnies and 12 poppeters (for a total of 24 participants).  If there are more people interested, the limits will be expanded so long as the number of yarnies and poppeters are equal. If you are interested in swapping, but sign-ups are full, please still PM the questionnaire to the organizer, so we can keep track of interest and expand the sign-up limits if needed.

Things to keep in mind:
1. Flakers will not be tolerated.
2. This swap has a mandatory weekly check in. This means that you must post (at least) once a week in the discussion thread in order to keep both your partner and us, the organizers, in the loop as to how your crafting is progressing. We will be keeping a record of such posts and if you have poor communication, it will be noted in your feedback.
3. If you have not heard from your partner for awhile or notice that your partner has not been active on Craftster for a while, and you are feeling concerned, PM the organizers! Or if for any reason whatsoever you have concerns, feel free to PM us!
4. We will not approve anyone who has multiple feedbacks stating that they have poor communication, have not used a DC#, or have consistently been late senders.
5. Everyone is expected to send on time.  If you are going to be late, you must notify us ASAP (BEFORE the send-out date!). Those who are late and do NOT notify us, will receive negative feedback which will not be removed or corrected until we receive a DC# and the package is received by your partner.
6. When you send your package, PM the organizers and your partner to let them know its been mailed, and give them the DC# so they can track the package.
7.  Posting photos in the gallery is mandatory, and failure to do so will result in a comment in your feedback. If you do not have access to a camera, please contact your partner and ask if they can take pictures of both packages which they send/receive.
8. If you are an international swapper or sending internationally and are unable to get a DC#, you must retain a copy of your shipping receipt. If for any reason your package goes missing and you do not have a copy of the receipt to provide us the organizers, you will have to resend to your partner.

To contact the organizers, send a PM to mama24boyz.  In the subject line, put Poppet/Amigurumi Swap and sign-ups, question, sent, received, etc.

4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Tetra From Zeldas WindWaker Amigurumi on: June 19, 2014 09:17:19 AM
I am so excited to have finished this one!!!  She is 18" tall (21" with her hair).  Her arms and fingers are pose able.  I attempted needle felting for the first time with her eyes and eyebrows!!  (*&^%$ those needles HURT!!!!!) Her face is contoured. I just love how she came out!  I love her little toes!!  Her clothing was made after her body was, but most of it is sewn on.  The vest is removable though. 











Thanks for looking!!!

Details of swap:
This swap is for any video game, past or present, and any console (DS, PS3, XBox, computer, etc).  This will be a 5 point swap, with one of the items being at least a medium, in other words, you cannot send 5 smalls. You will have 5 weeks of crafting time to complete the swap. If you are not sure that this is enough time, then think about it before you sign up, we want a flake-free swap!

PLEASE READ
There are a few necessary rules that are mandatory.
1. You MUST post in the swap thread before being accepted.  This is a Craftster rule!  I recommend posting something like "I'm so down for this!" or "sending in my questionnaire!" before you send me your swap questionnaire.
2. You MUST get delivery confirmation within the US.  This is also a Craftster rule.  If you are sending internationally, keep your receipt as proof of sending.  Please try to take pictures of what you are sending to your partner as well.
3. COMMUNICATE.  This is very important!  Please post in the swap thread at least once a week so we know you're alive and crafting.  Please, please, please communicate to me and your partner if you need to send late.  And if for some reason you cannot finish the swap, you need to let me know ASAP so I can find a swap angel for your partner.

10  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Michonne on: April 01, 2014 02:07:08 PM
I'm working on a couple of projects for a swap and I was getting frustrated with both of them!!  Tongue So I needed a quick little distraction and with the season finale of Walking Dead on it gave me an idea, or an urge, lol, to make one of them.  I started with Michonne, now I just need to figure out how to make a sword for her.  I am so happy with how she came out!!!




Thanks for looking!!!
