21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap R3!- Gallery on: November 04, 2014 09:34:39 AM
I love the patches you made elderflower!  The edge stitching is so cool, I'll have to try that.  The hobbit patch is my fav, I love the beads and the background fabric is really neat... Did you make/dye that fabric yourself?

oooh a gallery...I'm a little slow...
All the patches are so interesting, I especially love the tree, This is England shirt, Pikachu (my daughter is officially addicted to all things Pokemon), and the Targaryan dragon, wow!  I don't know who Baby Bucky is, but the technique is cool, is that colored in or printed?  It looks awesome!
So glad you liked your patches craftADDchick!  I have a blast planning patches for your theme.  I'm really into free motion sewing now so it was a fun excuse to play around with it some more.  I really need to spend some time learning how to embroider words, "fungi" is looking cray...that's why I normally stamp letters :/

I've been so swamped, I haven't had a chance to whip up more shop goodies...I wish this was a year round swap Wink. Hopefully I'll get more free time soon. Anyone looking for specific sewn items?

1 claims / 0 sent / 0 received
Sylvan for vinyl cutouts and cosies (claimed)

** Its been forever since I've udated my Wishlist, so I'll work on that some more soon ***
My name is Christy and I live in Maryland with my hubs, super energetic and hilarious 8yo daughter, and 2 dogs.  I am originally from Austin, Texas and even though I love the seasons in Maryland, I am hoping to move back to crazy hot Austin when my husband retires from the Navy.  I picked up sewing about 3 years ago and have become a crafting freak.

EVERYTHING in my Craftster Wishes and TV & Books folder (for inspiration) is game (I update my pinterest more than my list!)

Game of Thrones, Reno 911, Arrested Development, Walking Dead, Royal Tenenbaums, Princess Bride, Labyrinth, East Bound and Down, Dr. Who, The Office, Downton Abbey, Anchorman, Strangers With Candy, Tim Burton, Little Shop of Horrors, where the wild things are, Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Firefly/Serenity, Judge Judy, Beetlejuice....whatever other shows are in my TV/Books pintrest folder

Grumpy Cat, Peacocks, birds, houses, mushrooms, trees, odd creatures, sloths, yetis...and I'm crazy for llamas (the crazy eye/teeth ones lol)

I basically love a good mix of modern and natural/rustic.  I have blue-grey modern print curtains and also muted deep dirty red and yellow color paintings, stone and metal sculptures/art in my LR.  I like color but not psychedelic brights or cutesy florals/patterns.  I like natural art, wood stones, branches, wire art, clay/paper mch figures, etc.  I also like steampunk-y anything and Interesting sculptures/art.

tie-dye, fluorescents, and I'm not a fan of blue jean material, animal prints, pink, orange, batiks or grandmaw-ey florals.  I'm not into overly cutesy fabrics/things, ruffles, glitter, pastels or frilly-ness, religious or hippie style (peace signs, daisies, etc)



  • I would love any dimensional scene art like THIS or THIS but themed to my movies/books
  • Journals: medium sized (not large notebooks), unlined paper for gluing/painting/crafting on. We love art journals in this house
    • Kids: the minecraft wolf/dog, Nyan cat, Gary snail, Pokemon (especially Mew)
    • Adult: grumpy cat, crazy looking llama, Dr. Who, handbook for the recently deceased, any movie likes above, River's spoilers (doesn't have to be leather!)  
  • Craftster mini binder --- would love a decorated/altered (Craftster style would be cute...their pictures crack me up, or any of my favs, or your style...I'm pretty open about the style as long as it isn't cutesy/frilly) mini 3 ring binder with random papers/pages/envelopes/tabs/pockets or any other awesomeness.  I want to use this to record swap info and hole-punched pics and notes I get with packages.  I'll take whatever interesting paper/envelopes you feel like putting in there, I can add more myself Smiley

  • My daughter would absolutely love anything, in any media, you would want to make of her dog, Bay Bay.  Here is a link to a few pics (he is the dachshund -- the only dog pictured with her)
  • I'd love an art doll/creature made by you.  I really like the clay or paper mch ones,  sculptures and/or functional (lil containers).  I really like odd or funny, but NOT  dark and creepy (no blood, guts, demons, etc).  Here's some inspiration on my pinterest (I would love anything in your style or similar to this board!)
  • Essential oil lockets , any amount. Love lavender, ylang ylang, lemongrass, rose, anything that smells good Smiley  
  • Would love this unicorn mommy/daughter pic drawn/painted/embroidered on a medium/large lunch bag or medium tote (or even on a piece of fabric so I can cut and sew it onto something myself!). I like a canvas or light neutral background
  • glass bowls on my pinterest, I love them all...especially the small water drop ones, they would be neat in white/cloudy or light blues
  • Would freak for some book zip cases likes these
  • Anything Inspired by my TV & Books pinterest:  Pouches, dimensional scenes, bags, clay figures, wooden stuff, plush, hoopla, peg people, mug rugs, Teesha Moore patch pouch, anything.  I have ideas on my pinterest , TV & Books , and Dr Who boards, but would love anything!
  • Wooden block art. Any shape/size, with any medium (paper, paint, fabric covered, whatever).  Would love them themed to my movie/show likes above
  • ANYTHING Grumpy Cat or Crazy faced llama (pouch, hoopla, sculpture, doll, art, mugrug, rubber stamps, anything)
  • Driftwood people/art
  • I would love some sort of needle felting kit -- like some fibers, needles, instructions, etc....whatever I would need to start learning this craft
  • little mushroom pins to put in my pincushion, I will actually use the pins so I'd love for them to be at least as long as pins used for sewing, not teenie tiny pins

I'm totally excited to receive scraps and used for ANY of the supplies listed below!
  • Poppet making supplies (eyelashes, alova, eyeballs, button joints, etc)
  • button making machine (aaaiiieeeee!)
  • Buttons -- both the pin-back type and the clothing type, I especially love wacky or funny ones
  • Purse making supplies -- clasps, magnetic closures, handles, etc
  • any kind of old hardware -- knobs, keys, hooks, whatever
  • metal stamping discs/metal  
  • Silhouette cutter supplies (blades, cutting mats, vinyl, transfer paper, stamp paper, etc---used is totally fine!). Some cricut supplies also work like mats and any vinyls

  • Any textured, interesting fabric/scraps

  • KAM snaps
  • any text fabric

I'm going to pick fabrics this weekend and get all the pillows prepped...then get all my details hacked out.  I love the planning part, but it's also the most time consuming Smiley
