Hello! I'm in Florida, USA and this is my list:CRAFTED:I LOVE BambiKhantastic's octopus hoody
I would love something like this as either a T-shirt, ribbed tank, or a hoody. What I love about it is the size of the image and the placement, the subject matter (sealife), and the artistic ability. These colors are great as is, but I would wear this or something similar in any colors. Size medium would be best and I love the plain Hanes tees in size L in the boys section at Wally World.
$I know hoodies are expensive so I will send you a hoodie to decorate for me if you'd like.$A colorful and/or decorated knee-length skirt
(19" - 21" long). A-line, wrap, or something that doesn't hug like a pencil skirt does. Please no ruffly ruffles, tiers, gathered waist or elastic waist. I'm size 4, but PM for measurements if necessary.
A pair of light-weight cotton pajama pants Thanks, Therisa!MP3 player accessories
with one or two back pockets.
I really need a casing for my earbud cords. I have a specific design in mind for a knitted casing that would be like a turtleneck that I could scrunch down when using them. I don't like to knit, nor can I get the hang of i-cord, which is what I think would be perfect for the task. I tried crocheting something, but it didn't work well. A pouch to keep the player and buds in would be neat, too, with maybe a strap on the pouch so I could hang it on a doorknob or hook so I will have a reliable place for it. Right now the whole contraption looks like a wiry dead worm that had its last and very painful throes of life on the couch, coffee table, or wherever I ended up tossing it.Set of embroidered queen-size pillow cases.

Something with a little more oomph to it than a simple zippered pouch.
This is for all my coin change that wallows in the bottom of my pocketbag. Please make it so it closes all the way so the change won't fall out when I do cartwheels down the street. I'd also like it to be somewhat rigid, not floppy like how quilting cotton is. So I'm thinking materials like duck cloth, vinyl, heavy-weight interfacing, corduroy, leather, pleather, knaugahide, etc. would be well-suited for this project.

- but in girlie colors. My good friend just had a new baby girl and I would love to give these to her! But I can't justify spending that much on them when, if I knew how to embroider, I could make them myself for a lot less, you know? I'll be visiting her during the last weekend in May to visit her and the new addition to her family. I'm so excited!T-Shirt for the man in my life:
My man hates Hillary Clinton and he has been bugging me to make him a shirt that has a picture of her with devil horns and says "Hillary is the devil!" but I don't have a printer that will do it.

I love the following scents:
- grapefruitA sturdy rectangular container for a soap loaf mold.
Something that's about 5" wide and 4" high and about 12" long. I will be lining it with wax paper so it doesn't matter what it's made out of as long as the sides are straight, without any incline or decline, and sturdy.Poly clay supplies and accessories.
I have plenty of clay and I'm starting to get the hang of it and I really enjoy the craft, but I could use some tools or other things I haven't been able to find in my neck of the woods. I would especially like some liquid sculpey or whatever it is that I can "glue" two bits of clay together before baking the piece. Another thing that would be cool would be one of those bendy slicers. A little rolling pin would be nice, too. I use a ball-point pen right now or something else that's handy, but those are just not all that great at rolling out clay. Since I am not that big into the clay craft yet, I am not sure what else I need or want, so whatever you think might be helpful or useful. I am not into those press molds, though.Crafting Books/Magazines

Plain or multi-colored. I would love some superwash or something a little more exotic than just plain wool.

I'll add more later if it comes to that.

Colors: I prefer to wear shades, tones, and hues. I don't usually wear white or off-whites, bright primary colors, or neon colors. My favorites are petal pink, blue/greens (teal, aqua, turqoise), black, greens (lime, olive, army, moss, avocado), baby or sky blue, and plum. Please no brown. For other things like decorative items or accessories, bright cheery colors are nice in addition to the colors I like to wear.
When I get the chance, I like to travel, go backpacking, take bike rides, go kayaking, visit festivals, read on the beach, and just generally be outdoors and active. My style reflects these activities and it would like to reflect anything found at Anthropologie, but I don't have enough disposable income for such a lifestyle.
