41  My Very First TM Bag!! Zelda Themed in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mama24boyz on: June 05, 2013 06:30:07 PM
I made this bag for the Zelda Swap Rnd 5.  I absolutely love it and am so proud of it!!!  It was so hard to part with, but I'm going to make another for me!!  It was my first time doing Teesha Moore patches, my first real embroidering, my first purse really that wasn't crocheted!



And a few of my faves
Keep Calm and Take This, I wish I would have used a plainer fabric for this one, you can't really read it  Undecided


Links Belt, LOVE this one!!


The 'Z'

Navi "Hey, Listen!"


Hylian Crest

Life Bar

I think this one was the Song of Gales

And L <3 Z written in Hylian!!!  Love this one too!!

Thanks for looking!!

If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES
***International participants, please take note of this! You MUST keep a record of your postage receipt, if for any reason your package is not received, we will need a copy of this receipt!***

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). The other partner (the poppeter) will be crafting one clothed poppet.  This is a great opportunity to craft what youre good at, and receive something you dont make yourself!

Sign-up limits:
Since each yarnie must be matched with a poppeter, it is important than 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.

Project Page Link (if available):  Pattern available here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ballerina-ruffle-skirt
Brief Description: Well, it was Daysies birthday and she needed a cute dress to wear!!  I found this pattern and thought it was adorable.  I made her a very pink skirt with the Red Heart Sashay yarn.  I've never used it before.  I'm not sure how I feel about it either.  It didn't take me too long to make and the result is so soft and fluffy and cute, but its just so.....I don't know, I don't think I like it, but I may use it again.  I have a purple colourway that I may have to turn into a skirt too.  Grin

I've been horrible, its taken me FOREVER to get these pics up.  I got an awesome jar full of goodies from lunanne, unfortunately, I opened it before taking a pic and as many of you stated, I don't know how she got it all in there in the first place!!!  Cheesy

Theres lots of little ribbons, embroidery floss, a little MLP and Mario lego guy
Some of my handmade stuff, a felted bookmark, a heart bookmark, a ToLP, and a wooden heart keychain

A handmade heart necklace, this isn't a very good pic of it, its very pretty and a heart cell phone charm (handmade), some pencils that the boys love and clothespin people that I can't wait to play with!

And lots of beads and buttons.  I love the little wooden buttons, theres only 3 of them pictured, but I really got quite a few.

Thanks so much lunanne!!!!

48  Lana Portrait Ghan in CHALLENGE 86 ENTRIES by mama24boyz on: May 03, 2013 07:22:53 AM
YAY!!  A challenge I can enter!

Underthemountain invited me to the IYP swap last round.  I had swapped with her before and she always spoils, she is such a great person, I knew I had to make her something really special and I knew just what it would be.  Averia helped by sending me a beautiful pic of Lana, most of you probably know Lana, our little craftster child  Wink  I got a pattern made from it and some yarn and went to play!!!  It took me a while to get it done, the colour changes are very tedious, some rows take 30 - 45 minutes and others take just 5, depending on the colour changes.  Once you get to the middle though and you can actually "see" what you're making, it gets so much easier to make because you just get excited to see more of it!!  I guess I should mention that its crocheted, in case you wondered.  Tongue

Anyways, on to the pic, unfortunately I only took one, but its a good one.  You could also check out underthemountain's profile pic for a different view.

Thanks for looking!!!

Hey!!!! Its my turn!!!  My partner jtlhmmwabodf totally spoiled me!!!!  First, I love how she doodled on the box.

OK, on to the goodies, I opened it to this

Heres my yarn all wound up.  The blue skein is actually 2 skeins.  I shoulda wrapped them individually, sorry.  One is cool colours and one is warm colours, all make up kinda a rainbow.  Now the rainbow one is beautiful.  Its handspun and handdyed!!!!!!!!!!  Thick and thin yarn, I love that!!  Have to find the perfect pattern for it.

Now the goodies, lots of candies, mmmmmm

The boys are going to love these hats.  Theres a goomba and a creeper hat.  At first I thought the creeper hat was a toque, but I LOVE this version!!!! I may just have to keep it!!!!  Roll Eyes

Heres some bought goodies.  The pencil smells yummy. I love the little start tea rest.

This ones special cuz she sent it just for my iguana loving mom!!!  I love it!! Its so pretty!!

Now all my handmade goodies, I got hair clippies, flowers, heart garland, handmade wooden buttons, Mario pins, friendship bracelets, a polished rock bracelet with kids birthstone colours and a knitted bracelet.  I may have forgotten something in my list. 

I absolutely love everything!!!  Thank you so much!!!!!!
