2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Scarfy-AVPM on: March 05, 2012 03:35:27 PM
My friend loves A Very Potter Musical, so I had to make her the Scarf of Sexual Preference that is featured in the sequal. If you love HP I recommend watching these on Youtube, they are very funny.

I ordered the scarf on Amazon and then used felt to make the mouth, buttons for the eyes, and thanks to my sewing machine I think I came up with a pretty good recreation.

Details of swap:
Need some time to unwind, de-stress, and pamper yourself?? Then this is the swap for you!!  The idea of this swap is to craft items that your partner would use to pamper or de-stress. I am thinking items such as scrubs, soaps, candles, oils, blankets to cuddle with, or even voodoo dolls (if de-stressing requires sticking a pin in something, why not??). This swap is not limited to any specific type of item as long as it is what you use to de-stress and relax.

This will be a 5 point swap with at least one medium required. Only one or two of your items need to be crafted, store bought items are okay too. For example, a handmade scented pouch for your drawer and a purchased candle. Or homemade body scrub with purchased lotion. Any combination!!

 Large = 3 points
Medium = 2 points
Small = 1 points

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = 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
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

6  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / OTDWT: One Tiny Doctor Who Thing Round 3 (SIGNUPS CLOSED, MAILOUT: 2/1) on: December 21, 2011 09:17:19 AM




Swap name: One Tiny Doctor Who Thing Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: mandymo13   
Sign-up date range:12/21/11-1/11/12
Date to send item by: 2/1/12
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES (Lilak Tygress)
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of incomplete packages, very late sending, ill-communication, lack of DC #'s, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap!

Details of swap:
Each participant will be required to send out One Tiny Doctor Who themed item, measuring no more than 4x4. Your item should be physically small BUT, it should also be something that you can craft with a high level of skill. Even if it is a fairly simple/easy item for you to make, please embellish so as to represent the best of what you can craft. (For example, if you wish to make a coin purse, you could embroider, add beading, stencil, or take any other steps to make it a really special piece.)

* You will receive only one partner.
* You may only send that partner ONE Tiny Doctor Who craft
* All items must be 4"x4" or smaller in their natural state.


How do you know if your idea is "tiny?" Examples: A coin purse is tiny; a clutch purse is not. A pair of earrings/pendant is tiny. A trinket box is tiny; a pencil box is not. If you're not sure if your idea qualifies as "tiny," ask your organizer!

What does in their natural state mean? That means that if the object was resting on a table, it would be 4x4. A book for example that had a cover 4 square, would count as a OTT, even though when you open the book it could be 4x8, because in its natural state, a book lays closed.

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key. Please make sure you are communicating with you partner. Be sure that your partner is still communicative before sending your item to them. Further, it would be nice if you would post in this thread at least once a week.


If you want to participate, PM information to organizer:
