Details of swap:

Who loves a good book? And who doesn't love sharing their favorite ones? In this swap, we will be swapping one of your favorite books that you think your partner will like based on the questionnaire. We'll also be swapping some crafty goodies based on the book(s) or genre(s) you send.

Your book can be thrifted or used, just make sure its in decent condition. Dont send a book that is in such a bad condition you wouldnt buy it yourself. One book is the minimum, but feel free to talk with your partner about sending more. (I will also try to match people up based on if they want to send more than one book or not.)

This will be a 4 POINT swap! You will be required to craft at least ONE LARGE or ONE MEDIUM item. The point scale is: Large=3, Medium=2, Small=1. If you make a large item, you need a small to go with it to reach the four points. If you make a medium, you need another medium, or two smalls to go with it.

THIS IS AN "ANY ART GOES" SWAP!! You can use any medium you like to craft for this swap. Painting/drawing, amigurumi/stuffies, quilts, embroidery, mixed media, ATC collage, jewelry design, Scrap booking, knit/crochet etc. Just make sure it fits your partner's taste.

Extras may be sent between partners but BOTH MUST AGREE TO THIS!! No one wants to feel bad for getting a boatload of extras but not sending any

IN ADDITION:
- You must post in this thread at least once a week.
- You must post in this thread before you can join the swap.
- All announcements will be made here so please bookmark this page
- Please try to create a package that you are proud of and you think your partner will enjoy receiving do some research!
- Remember to take pictures, just in case your partner is unable to.
- Keep your receipts and tracking numbers
- Make sure you PM the organizer and your partner when you send and receive
- PM organizer with any other problems right away!


Sizes defined as follows:


Large item: 3 points (A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse; 3 or more hours of crafting time; $30 or more)
Medium item: 2 points (one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf; about 2 hours crafting time; between $10 - 30)
Small item: 1 point (Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks; less than 2 hours crafting time; less than $10)

Your crafted items MUST reflect either the book itself or something of the genre of the book. You can talk with your partner about sending extras, but one medium and two smalls is the minimum.

Please take pictures of your crafted items to post in the gallery. If not, please make arrangements with your partner.

I will try my best to match up people based on their likes and if they want to send more than one book. Please remember, though, that this is to try new books and there are other things to consider when pairing people up.

Make sure to send me the DC# and PM me (with Favorite Book Swap in the subject line) when you send and receive. If youre not in the USA, please get your countrys equivalent. Also, there is a media rate for sending books/movies/etc, but the post office might not accept this if there is something other than media in your package. Check with your post office though; they might let it pass.

So once again, the minimums: ONE book, ONE medium crafted item and TWO small crafted items. Have fun!

3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Favorite Book Swap on: April 05, 2016 12:58:56 PM


In the past there has been an awesome swap were you and your partner sent eachother your favorite books, and a few crafted items based on the books sent and received. For instance, lets say I loved Little Women and my partner loved Pride and Prejudice. I would send her a copy of Little Women, a craft inspired by that book, (Like a notebook based on Jo's character) and an item inspired by Pride and Prejudice. (Lets say Jewelry Liz might wear.) We could decide on the amount of items we think would be a good idea, and how many books we'd like to send.

Does that sound like fun to anyone else? I'm thinking all craft skills would be allowed. (Crocheting, Knitting, Sewing, Embroidery, Paper Crafts, Jewelry, Sculpting, etc.)
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Time for another Embroidery Hoop swap? on: September 28, 2015 09:01:36 AM


Anyone interested in doing another Embroidery Hoop swap? It seems like it has been a while since I've seen one up. I wouldn't mind hosting it if no one else was interested.

Here are a few theme ideas we could consider as well:

Abstract
History/Vintage
Maps
Magical/Fantastical
Monochromatic
Books/Stories
Patchwork
Lettering

Any sound particularly fun, or any type you'd like to see?

Details of swap:

In this swap, participants will have three options.

#2.To sign up to swap in a group of 3. (Send and receive 2 bookmarks.).
#2.To sign up for multiple bookmarks. (Send and receive more than one bookmark.

Love reading? Hate folding corners, losing your place? Always using the nearest slip of paper to hold your spot? Then this swap is for you! Open for all book lovers to finally get something to hold their positions in the books they're enjoying.

This swap is open to people in every country, and is a great way to try out swapping internationally, without a lot of cost.  To those of you who automatically say you do not wish to ship to a country outside your own, please consider it on this one!!! You will only be mailing an envelope and the costs would be much less than in a traditional swap.  Think about how much fun it will be to get international mail!  And think about how sad you would be as an international crafter, if no one ever wanted to swap with you!  Also remember that you would NOT receive ALL international swappers.

It is A LOT cheaper to ship international on a bookmark swap. You're only shipping envelopes, so even three will be under $5.

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is always the key.  Please keep in touch with your partners and organizer.  If you are accepted into the swap, I will PM you, and add you to the participant list.  Once partners have been assigned, you may craft your bookmarks and send as early as you wish.  All swaps on Craftster, requires the use of tracking, but this is not possible when sending letters or sending internationally.  Since you can't get tracking for these, feedback will be based on if your partner received or not.  YOU MUST PM YOUR PARTNER AND WIZARDS_PUPIL WHEN YOU SEND AND RECEIVE.

If your bookmark is not received after three weeks, you will need to re-craft and send another one to avoid negative feedback.

Extras may be sent between partners but BOTH MUST AGREE TO THIS!! No one wants to feel bad for getting a boatload of extras but not sending any

IN ADDITION:
- You must post in this thread at least once a week.

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Craft for Good (And Not Evil) Swap on: August 08, 2015 07:07:56 AM


So, I had an idea for a different kind of swap and was wondering if it was something that might interest anyone. The basic idea would be that each swapper would pick a particular charity/NPO that they like/support. Then the partners would craft an item to be donated to their partner's charity/NPO.

Does this seem like a fun idea? The swappers could include an item for their partner as well.

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Fedora (With a Pattern) on: September 26, 2014 06:46:22 PM
Its been raining pretty much nonstop where Im at for two weeks now, and its really messing with my hair. I love to walk in the rain, but Im getting a little tired of looking like a wet dog. So I decided to make a hat, but Im tired of tight fitting hats, and I wanted something with a brim. Voila! Fedora happened.

It needs a chunky weight yarn, but I NEVER have any so I used to strands of worsted weight. Its what I always do whenever I dont have chunky. I chose black and gray because theyre the two things most prominent in my wardrobe.

So here we go!



Fashionably Fabulous Fedora

Hook: J
Yarn: chunky 10 strand, or two 4 strands.

Abbreviations:
Sc = Single crochet
Sp = space
Ch = chains

PATTERN:
Rd1: ch2, 10 sc in the 1st ch. Join in beginning stitch. -10 stitches
Rd2: ch1, 2sc in next stitch, 2sc in each stitch around. -20stitches
Rd3: ch1, 2sc in first stitch, *single sc in next stitch, 2sc in next stitch,* repeat from * to * around. -30 stitches
Rd4: ch1, 2sc in first stitch, *single sc in next two stitches, 2sc in next stitch,* repeat from * to * around. -40 stitches
Rd5: ch1, 2sc in first stitch, *single sc in next three stitches, 2sc in next stitch,* repeat from * to * around. -50 stitches
Rd6: ch1, sc in each stitch around. -50 stitches
Rd7: ch1, 2sc in first stitch, *single sc in next four stitches, 2sc in next stitch,* repeat from * to * around. -60 stitches
Rd8: ch1, sc in each stitch around. -60 stitches
Rd9: ch1, 2sc in first stitch, *single sc in next five stitches, 2sc in next stitch,* repeat from * to * around. -70 stitches
Rd10: ch1, sc in each stitch around. -70 stitches
Rd 11: ch1, 2sc in first stitch, *single sc in next six stitches, 2sc in next stitch,* repeat from * to * around. -80 stitches
Rd 12: ch1, sc in each stitch around. -80 stitches
Rd 13: ch1, 2sc in first stitch, *single sc in next seven stitches, 2sc in next stitch,* repeat from * to * around. -90 stitches
Rd 14: ch1, sc in each stitch around. -90 stitches
Rd 15 25 (add more here for a longer hat) : ch1, sc in each stitch around. -90 stitches

Now we can have some fun. You can make a different color band, or just go straight into the brim.

For the band:
Rd 26: (if you want a different color join here) ch2, dc in back loop only, in each stitch around. -90 stitches

(If you want a thicker color band, do another row, but do it through both loops.)

For the brim:
Rd 27: ch1, in back loops only,  sc in next three stitches, 2sc in next stitch, *sc in next four stitches, 2sc in next stitch,* repeat * to * around. -108 stitches
Rd 28-29: ch1, sc in each stitch around. -108 stitches
Rd 30: ch1, sc in next four stitches, 2sc in next stitch, *sc in next five stitches, 2sc in next stitch,* repeat * to * around. -126 stitches
Rd 31-34: ch1, sc in each stitch around. -126 stitches
Rd 35: ch1, sc in next five stitches, 2sc in next stitch, *sc in next six stitches, 2sc in next stitch* repeat * to * around. -144 stitches
Rd 36: ch1, sc in each stitch around. -144 stitches.
Fasten off and weave in the ends.

Now, fold the back brim up, and push down the top of the hat. Pinch it at the front and wear you new, fabulous fedora!
