61  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Deena from the Bubble Guppies on: October 19, 2012 02:18:28 PM
I made this for Belladunes daughter in the Geezer Swap a while back.  It took me forever to figure out how to make her have curly hair but once I got the idea it was perfect!!! Although sewing each one on was quite time consuming.  I love how she came out!!



And a close up of her face.



Thanks for looking!!

OK,I'm going to try this again, it was needleworkers vs yarnies, but it got merged with the sewists vs yarnies, so I've changed the name.  The idea is it would be 1 cross stitch/embroidered hoopla for 1 medium knitted/crocheted item.  I'm thinking to open mid to late August.

I reserve the right to deny any crafter's entrance into this swap for the following reasons...
ANY "negative" feedback comments
poor communication in past swaps
sending late in past swaps
Being a NEWBIE swapper (you must have successfully completed 1 swap prior to signing up for this one)  

I WILL NOT TOLERATE FLAKERS!!!  THIS SWAP IS HUGE! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE THINK CAREFULLY ON JOINING AND IF YOU DOUBT YOU CAN DO IT PLEASE DONT JOIN.  WE WANT THIS SWAP TO BE TOTALLY FLAKE FREE!!!!

The idea of this swap is to craft for your partner 13 groups of items (91 items in total-it is highly encouraged that day 13 be candy or some type of baked good- Halloween related of course) based on their interests. You will label the packages with the numbers 13-1, so that your partner knows which days are in which packages. We will start opening the packages on October 19th with the #13 package. Inside would be 13 things. On October 20th you would open the #12 package and inside there should be 12 things. This will go on and on until on October 31st when you will open the #1 package.

Each day can have a "theme" if you want, but this is not mandatory. You could have day 5 be 5 glitter skulls, while day 6 could be a pair of earrings + a set of gift tags + a fabric headband + a tea towel + embossing powder and some handmade paper

This is a pretty big swap commitment so if you are not sure that you can fulfill the obligations please do not sign up. This swap will end up taking a lot of time/money/resources, so please plan accordingly. Some participants from the past have said they spent a large amount of $$ in shipping alone!

Also, it is VERY IMPORTANT that the packages get sent ON TIME so please make sure that you can get to the post office. PLAN AHEAD, especially if you are shipping internationally!

Please note:  if you are sending food/accepting food, your package will look like this approximately:
handcrafted 60% = 55 items
store bought 25%= 23 items
food/candy/baked goods: 15% = 13 items (for day 13 most likely)
and, if not,  like this: 70% (64 items) handcrafted and 30% (27 items) store bought
If you buy an item from etsy.com, a craft fair, or any other handmade site that is handmade I consider it handmade and may go into the 75% handmade list. Store bought to me implies COMMERCIALLY manufactured, mass produced and/or supplies. If you have any questions, please feel free to pm me at any time!

Further detailed explanations:
Please pm me with any questions!

Here are some more rules- that specify just how much of a COMMITMENT this swap is!

Recommendations:

1. I would recommend that your day 13 be candy or treats, days 12-7 be "small" items, days 6-4 be "medium" items and days 3-1 be "large" items. Less time intensive things should be made for the larger numbered days and more time intensive projects for the smaller numbered days.

Quick recap:
Day 13: Possible baked goods or smalls
Days 12-7: Small items
Days 6-4: Medium items
Days 3-1: Large items

Which further breaks down into-
13 candy treats (if you are accepting treats- if not it will be 70 small items)
57 small items
15 medium items
and
6 large items

Craftster's guidelines for swaps are as follows:

By Time
-Big = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Little = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Big = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Big = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

Shipping guidelines and info.

2. I STRONGLY recommend that you have a wist or pinterest for this swap, as it helps out your partner greatly. Please keep this updated and have at least 20 items on it. If you do not have a wist or pinterest, please have another way to show items to your partner that you like (etsy favorites, flickr, etc...)

Some things to think about:
*. If you are sending BAKED GOODS, please only send them if you live in the same country as your partner. We do not need to tempt customs people to keep your package after you have worked so hard on it! Also, if you are sending baked goods, you may leave them out of your 1st send out package and include them in the 2nd or send them in a completely separate package so they arrive in a timely manner and don't spoil or go stale.

*. I highly recommend that you wrap your items in a plastic bag/trash bag/ or some other protective wrapping INSIDE the box you are sending. Things can get wet from rain and/or snow OR things can melt in hot temperatures.

*. Also, if you will be shipping TO a partner that is in a HOT climate during the swap send outs, please do not include any thing that might melt on their swap goodies. Think about wrapping them in a plastic baggie or something similar.

The RULES:

1. You must send ALL PM's to mama24boyz and all PM's must have the subject line: 13 Days of Halloween Swap along with the word general question/sent/received...etc.

2. You must post in the original thread at least once a week! This starts once partners are assigned. You must continue to post at least 1 time a week until October 31st. I will be keeping track of this so please take notice. I will pm you if you have not posted in over a week!

3.PM's must be sent to mama24boyz AND your partner when you send and receive.  If you are sending within the USA you must get a DC# and send it to mama24boyz and your partner. They cost about an extra dollar in addition to the postage price. If you are sending outside of your country, you must keep your receipt as proof of shipping and send a picture of it or at least the customs code from your customs form to mama24boyz!!! This is very important!!

4.When you open each days package, you will then need to post in your mini gallery. I ask that you post pictures within a reasonable amount of time. Please get them posted within 3 days of opening. All of your pictures will be posted in your mini gallery. Posting pictures is a requirement for this swap! Not posting pictures will be noted in your feedback and that can affect your ability to join this swap or other swaps in the future. It will be noted in your feedback unless your mini gallery is filled with pictures of your 13 packages. Everyone will want to drool and covet what you get, so please share! If you don't have a digital camera and cannot get access to one, please ask your partner to take pictures before they send. (Partners may want to take pictures before they send just in case!)

5. I will be sending a pm at the following dates:
a halfway check in point on or around September 7th.
a one week to go check in point  for the first send out date September 25th for those shipping in the US.
A one week to go check in point for the second send out date October 6th for those shipping in the US.
I will send each of you a PM at each of these times and you must reply back.

DUE TO LENGTH, QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER IS POSTED IN BELOW in the 2nd REPLY!!

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.
