Details of swap:

This is how we are going to do this swap.  You make a stuffed animal or a doll and send your partner both the stuffed animal or doll and the pattern you made the stuffed animal or doll from.  Size ranges from: "7-12".  I am going to consider this a medium swap based on the sizes given.  I'm putting in the option of only exchanging patterns.  Patterns must be originals, not copies.  All manor of toy making is acceptable.  You can join if you: knit, crochet, sew, or make sock animals.  Also, I have been advised of this: Just be careful about copyright infringements.  If it's a free pattern posted on the internet, you could include the link, unless the designer gives permission to make copies.  Not all of them do.  If it's a pattern you purchased, you can include the original pattern.  Also be careful about copying patterns from magazines and publications.  The same would be true here.  I think that you can give the name and date of the publication where you got the pattern from, unless you want to send the original page(s) of the pattern or the whole magazine or book.  Just some suggestions to keep above the law.  You can draft a pattern too if you like.

My rules:.  You must post at least once per week in the thread.  When we move over to the gallery, you must continue to post once per week until you and your partner have both sent and received.

Things to keep in mind:
The more flexible you are in the questionnaire, the easier it will be to match you up with a partner.

46  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Scrappy Happy Doll for the Toy Society on: January 04, 2012 06:46:13 PM

I made this doll today from my scrap bin.  His/her head is made from what was left of a Rockford Red heel sock.  I was inspired by some dolls made for the Toy Society and posted on Flickr.  I'll drop him/her tomorrow in a neighboring town.  I hope he/she finds a loving home.  He/she just came together as I went along.  Free thinking is difficult for me.  I like everything neat, clean, organized w/clear directions.  Making this doll was so much fun!  I'm definitely expanding my horizons. 
47  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Does anybody know where I can buy paper mache reindeer on: December 21, 2011 07:01:09 PM
I've looked everywhere and can't find any!  Does anybody know of any stores or websites that are not sold out?  I hope this is in the right category.  If it is not, I apologize.  Thank you for taking the time to read this. 
48  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Toy Society Drop Sock Reindeer on: December 20, 2011 11:21:42 AM
A sock reindeer I whipped up yesterday.  I dropped him in a cart at the grocery store today.  When my 18yr old son and I came out of the store, the cart was gone.  I hope he went to a good home.  My wish was to spread a little Christmas cheer.  Christmas is my favorite time of the year!  He is also stuffed w/rice so that he can be tossed in the microwave and warmed up for those long, cold winter nights. 
49  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Want a ride on my rocket baby? on: December 02, 2011 09:11:38 AM
2 sock monkeys I made.  The pink one for an agent at my husband's work and the black and white one as a prize for a contest my husband is running at his work.  The pink one is going to the agent's niece.  She cried when my husband gave it to her.  She couldn't believe I had actually made it as requested.  The black and white one is made from knee high socks that looked like shoes laced up.  Sorry about the title.  I was just trying to have a little fun, not trying to be naughty.  Wink 
50  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Door Greeter/Card Holder Standing Reindeer on: December 02, 2011 09:00:11 AM

This past spring I was lucky enough to find a large standing Annalee reindeer at a garage sale for only $2.00!  He was in perfect condition!  He has a saddle on his back, w/pockets on the sides for holding your greeting cards.  I love all manor of cervine.  I was inspired by the Annalee reindeer, to make this one.  He is made from "furry" felt that I also got at a garage sale for $5.00.  I was stoked to get it at that price, because there was a couple of yards of it.  It is $5.00 a yard at JoAnne's, and they seem to be the only store that carries this type of felt any more.  His nose, eyelids, and hooves are made from suede scraps that I got in a milk crate full of fabric for a $1.00 at a garage sale this past summer.  I didn't even know they were in there, until I got home, and started digging through the crate.  His antlers are felt, and have chenille stems in them to give them some stability.  His saddle is a Christmas vest I got a neighbor's garage sale a few weeks ago for .50.  I cut it down to fit his back.  It also has pockets on the sides for holding greeting cards.  I embelished the saddle w/felt rick rack ribbon I got from a personal swap.  His reins are cording for curtains I also got at a garage sale this past summer for $1.00, and came w/some other fabric along w/the tassels that hang on the ends.  His feet have dried beans in them, left over from making bean bags, that I made for a swap.  His legs also have those stuffing sticks in them, that you get from bags of stuffing.  W/my new sewing machine, he only took a few days to make.  I was surprised how quickly he came together.  He is pretty big too.  I was going to take him to my husband's aunt's house for their ornament pass around on Christmas Eve.  But, I gave him to my husband.  He is going to use him as a prize for his agents at work.  I plan on making one for us, and one for the ornament pass around at his aunt's house.  I kind of can't wait to see the fight that will ensue over the reindeer at the pass around (yes I would rather see other's fight, than fight myself.)   I know of 3 people who collect this kind of thing, and will be mad if they don't get it.  Enjoy.
