I claim 1boy1girl1kitty2 for any quilting books or mags
I'm in Fairfax, Va (USA). This is my 4th claim. 2 sent, 1 received.
About me: I am a 30-year-old stay at home mom who loves to sew, but seems to have very little time to do so of late. I'm not very girly and I'm not a big fan of trinkets. Basically, I'm very practical and like useful things. Of course, I consider things to hang on the walls useful
Things for my kids:
I am expecting a little girl late June and would love some crafted goodies for her. Here are some suggestions:
(artwork? pillows? etc.) in lavender (I'm trying to convert my green/blue/yellow nursery into a girl's room by adding lavender accents)
-I need a new changing pad
to keep in my diaper bag. Something waterproof, please (maybe oilcloth??).
My 2.5-year-old son doesn't want to be left out of the crafty goodness either!
-My sister-in-law is making him a toy kitchen, but he doesn't have any play food
. I would LOVE some crafted food for him. Nothing with choke-able parts, so probably made of fabric would be good.
-Dress up clothes
. I'm trying to put together a collection of dress-up clothes for him, but I'm stumped for what to include in it. So far, all he has is some capes and a fireman hat. I would appreciate some assistance -whatever you can dream up.
Things For Me:
. I love sending homemade notecards and I've seen some really beautiful ones out there. You can have total creative freedom with this one, just stay away from anything religious or political
, for everyday use, in shades of blue, purple, or yellow
-A tote bag
to bring to the farmer's market this spring/summer. Something sturdy enough to handle all my veggies!
-Anything from my wists
with what you do best. Just, you know, try to make it something I can make use of
. I'm a quilter and my stash is woefully in need of some yellows, purples and neutrals. I'll accept any and all sized pieces (including scraps), but I would really prefer good quality fabric.
-Sewing patterns for children's' clothing
. I especially would like a pattern for baby bloomers (you know, to wear under dresses).
-Bias Tape MakerExtras
-Any empty spice jars/containers
(plastic only, please!) for my son's play kitchen. He currently only has bay leaves and everything he "cooks" contains massive quantities of them!
-3" fabric squares
for a scrap quilt I'm working on. Don't send a ton - just a few. And all different fabrics please. I want a real variety
