Sendouts are december 9th right? :p I'm sort of feeling the pressure now :p I've got the supplies I have to buy and this weekend I can start crafting with the suplies I've got from home. I've have got all three crafts planned out fully, but I haven't started yet with crafting.

No pressure! I have a lot of Christmas crafting to do, so I wanted to get it done and out before I got too crazy with other stuff.

Thanks for the kind words! Gozer, lanolizeing is a process of putting lanolin back into the wool. You put your wool in a warm bath of wool wash and solid lanolin and let it sit. After it all dries it makes your wool awesome. It's softer, repels water, and converts the pee into crystals which deoterizes and means you don't have to wash your wool and relanolize it again until it starts to smell. It's pretty cool! Lanolin comes from sheep, their secrete it from their skin into their wool, which helps them keep dry and warm.

Smeddley, love that stuffy!! So cute!!

Hi all! I'm Jill from WA state. I've been MIA from this swap for quite awhile, but I'm feeling like I need to get back into it. I have an amazing 14 mo daughter and a wonderful, nerdy, musical hubby. I'm not easily offended, so profanity, nudity, horror and religious is all fine with me!

My themes:
-fancy animals
-artist's choice

Gozer, I love that scarf!  I'm so gonna have to make one!! (or two, or three, ...)

I've missed you all, so I've decided to jump on in!  Its been a busy month of crafting for me, and I've started with my christmas present crafting as well.  So, here we go!  I'm gonna join Team Multimedia this semester.  Warning, there is gonna be a lot of projects incoming!

Prompt:  September - Solitaire
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points: NA
Project Name: Pink Ruffle Scarves
Brief Description: So this project used one main thing to make it:  FLEECE!  I have so much fleece at the house, despite that I found a remnant at the fabric store for this wonderful neon pink fleece.  I had no idea what I was going to do with it when I bought it, but I quickly found a purpose.  Scarves!  These three beauties are for my daughter, and two nieces, who are 14 mo, 16 mo, and 18 mo currently.  They are for christmas presents.

Prompt:  October -Graveyard shift
Team: Multimedia
Project Name: Wool shorties
Brief Description: I've been having nightime leaking issues with baby bean, now that she has a bigger bladder and can put out more liquid during the night.  So, in my research, I've read that wool shorties, which is essentially a wool diaper cover that goes over a prefold or fitted cloth diaper, works wonders for containing leaks.  So, I found a pattern for these online and went out and found some wool sweaters.  These two are made from a felted cashmere sweater.  So soft!  I sewed it, and then had to lanolize the wool before use.  I haven't had a chance to fully test these out for nighttime yet, but she is currently trying it out for her nap right now.  Hopefully this will be the solution we've been searching for!

Prompt: November - Romance

Project Name: Sock Monkeys!
Brief Description: I've made sock monkeys before, for my niece and nephew, but now I have new littles, whom I love oh so much, that need them!  I made these ones a little differently that I've made mine in the past, and I kinda like the new ones better.  I've made three so far, using socks from my stash that I bought forever about with the intention of making sock monkeys, but never did.  Until now!  These are for my daughter, two nieces, whom are all under 2.  I made my nephew a sock monkey this summer for his birthday, and his little sister found it on my bed and pulled into her pack n play and snuggled it as she slept.  Obviously, she needed one.  And now she will have her own come christmas!  I used this tutorial: http://www.craftpassion.com/2012/04/how-to-sew-sock-monkey.html

Prompt: November - Mystery
Team: Multimedia
Project Name: Toddler Scarves
Brief Description: More scarves for my babies!  I saw a picture of one online, but I couldn't find a tutorial for one, so I just figured it out myself, which wasn't hard.  I will post a tute when I get a chance.  I love these because they are adjustable, and thus will grow nicely with them.  Its nice that they will get to use these for more than a season before they outgrow 'em.  It has black fleece on the front, and white fleece on the back, following the its different one each side for this prompt.  ^_^  More christmas presents done!  They were fast to make, and I got 'em done this weekend.

Project Name: Baby Ewok
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436612.0
Brief Description: For Halloween this year, we decided to go star wars.  Hubby and I were Jedis, and baby bean was an ewok.  I cheated and bought the bear costume, but made the head piece and spear to go with.  The headpiece was essentially a rectangle, with a head and ear holes that I zigzagged around the openings to keep from fraying and then added some embroidery stitching.  The spear is a stick from our year with a felt spear head and some leather cording I had on hand.  Very easy Halloween costume!

Prompt:  October - Haunted House
Team: Multimedia
Project Name: Spooky Hairclips
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436611.0
Brief Description: I had some Halloween plastic rings with spiders and bats that I bought a couple of years ago, and decided to make baby bean some creepy crawly hair clips for Halloween.  Its a metal alligator type clip, covered in ribbon and then the plastic critter glued on (sans the ring portion).  They were super easy and quick to make.

Prompt:  November - Science Fiction

Project Name: Star Wars Toddler Shoes
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436608.0
Brief Description: I was in Walmart last month when I happened upon some plain black canvas toddler shoes.  They were totally calling out to me to be painted.  I bought the next size up for my little miss so they could be christmas presents for her.  I ended up on doing a star wars theme, because what little girl doesn't need star wars shoes, right?!  They are painted using tulip fabric paint, and sometimes watered down with water.  I've found out though that the soft tulip fabric paint, when in contact with water, becomes glittery.  I'm unsure why this happens, but it works for my daughter's shoes.  ^_^
