12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Star Wars Nesting Dolls on: September 08, 2009 06:54:09 PM
For the IYP 13 swap I made some nesting dolls for UntouchableFace from a pattern by Ana Paula Rimoli.  I love this pattern, kudos to Ana Paula.

I couldn't make a regular old set of matryoshka dolls I needed a twist for this package. I found just the twist in her wists, a Star Wars nativity scene.  So running with the idea I came up with these babies.


I used my son's Millennium Falcon as a backdrop.  Hubby ordered another set...maybe Christmas....

I hope you love the as much as I do.
13  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Handspun Sock Monkey Mittens on: September 07, 2009 03:01:53 PM
I was spinning up some wool I received from Mom as a gift and I thought it looked a lot like sock monkey yarn.  Well I've been on a mitten kick lately so I made my mitten pattern with white and red to resemble a sock monkey sock.  I was just finishing these babies when I saw theballandskein requested mittens in the August Birthday Swap. 

I added a sock monkey face at her request which completed the look.  I love the way they came out so much I made another pair for myself. 

Here they are:


I can't wait until winter comes so I can wear them.
14  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / August 2009 Birthday Swap Gallery and Discussion on: August 02, 2009 08:12:48 AM
Is your birthday in August??  Do you want to send someone a birthday present even though your birthday isn't in August??  Come on out and swap!!

Definitely post here to say hello even though the swap hasn't officially started!  I'll move this thread to the gallery area after the swap has begun.

The following is copied, pasted and slightly altered(only to reflect the July swap and organizer change - the rules are all still the same)  If you want to get some wish list ideas take a look at July's birthday swap http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=310038.0


Details of swap:  This swap was organized so everyone can get something crafty for their birthday!  Please read the guidelines carefully.

1. This swap is list style, like the Ongoing Wishlist Swap, however it is NOT chain style. You can choose any birthday craftster’s list that is posted, rather than only picking the last one.

2. This is a medium item swap. A medium item is defined as a craft or recon etc that takes you two hours to complete OR $20 worth of Store Bought Items. (If bought from a thrift store, estimate at what it would have cost new.) However you may also substitute a few small items for a medium.

3. If your birthday is in August, you can post your birthday wish list for this month. To do that, you must first PM your organizer with the swap questionnaire filled out and wait for approval.

4. Once you have been approved, you may post your list of things that you would like to receive. This is the format for your lists: First post your location and a short bio of yourself, then a list of crafted items you would like, then craft supplies (if any) and lastly you can put a few “extras” that aren’t crafted, things like candy or tea. Remember, the more items on your list, the more likely you are to be chosen. The minimum of items to post is five.  Also including your wists is a good way for people to get the idea of your likes and style.  If you have any allergies please type them in red in your bio section.

5. Please post lists only in this thread. Discussion can be done here in the combined discussion/gallery thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=307716.0

 6. Every birthday participant must make at least one claim. You may have up to two claims at a time, and then you can claim again once your items are received (not when you mail out). New swappers may only have one outstanding claim; they may claim again after their first claim is received. Claims need to be made from the "crafted" and "craft supplies" sections of a person's list. The "extras" are just that--extra items you may want to throw in if you are feeling generous, but claims cannot be solely extras. Keep it crafty :-) (I'm asking that if you are sending mostly supplies, that you craft a little something for the bday babe.)

7. You may get claimed more than once, but your minimum amount to claim is one.  It is possible you may not get claimed at all. In this case you will not be provided a swap angel; angels are only if you get flaked on. However I do my best to make sure everyone gets claimed by keeping track of how many times each person is claimed. If possible try to pick someone who has been claimed 0 times versus someone who has been claimed 3 times.

8. If it is not your birthday but you would like to send a birthday present out you may do so.  Fill out the “non-birthday swapper” questionnaire and send it to me for approval.  Birthday swappers who receive a present from a non-birthday swapper must send a snail mail birthday card.  You will not receive feedback until I hear from the other swapper that they have received a thank you card.

 9. When you choose to fulfill a birthday wish, PM your organizer(s) AND the chosen craftster.  At that time, please request the address for where to send it.  After that you have 2 weeks to get the item out the door.

10. It is super important for everyone to keep good communication.  It is REQUIRED that you PM me when you've sent and of course, don't forget the DC#.  It is REQUIRED that when you receive, you PM me and publicly announce in the gallery (even if you don't have pictures). 

11. When one of your items is chosen, please cross it out so that it is easier for others to see what has been chosen.
(It wouldn't hurt to thank the person at this time either.)

12. If you are sending late you must PM me by your send-out date.  If your send-out date comes and goes and you don’t PM me, you will receive “poor communication” feedback.  It should not be my job to hunt you down and find out what is going on.

Please make sure to put “August Bday Swap” or something equivalent in the subject line on all communications.  The most important thing to me is communication.  Please PM me when you send and receive, and please reply to my PM's to you in a timely manner

I guess I'll add my offering to the Egg Challenge. I read about the challenge and immediately came up with the idea and couldn't get it out of my head until it was done.  Whew.

I wanted to keep with the upcycling/recycling idea so I used "leftover" Hershey's kisses, a yellow shopping bag, and some painted yellow pages.

Okay, I found this cool number fabric while I was slogging through my stash to make my muppet wallet http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=300014.0 and it screamed Count von Count to me.

So here it is opened up, front and back.

Change purse opened.


I think Jim Henson and I are all walleted out now.  Hope you enjoy.
