21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Leftover Supplies and Crafts ongoing Swap? on: May 26, 2007 09:30:38 PM
Okay I know there's similar de-stashing ongoing swaps like "the Ongoing Offer what you have swap" or the "Shop the Sweat shop" but this kinda combines both. People will make a list that's composed of atleast 5 items: crafted finish or unfished items, craft supplies, fabrics or whatever findings that can be used for crafts. What makes this swap different from the previous two is you don't have to wait to claim from the last list posted (like with "Offer what you have swap") and your items don't have to be just craft items (like with the STS). So basically it's the exact same process as the STS(you start out with 3 claims, once your shop hits 7 claims your closed) except you can include craft supplies too, not just crafted items and the first person to claim(via pm) gets the item. You choose what your items equal in terms of a claim(like choose 3 for 1 claim, 1 claim each, etc..) but nothing priced higher then 1 claim per item each just make it easy. This will be a great way to recieve and get rid of craft supplies and crafted items(that don't have to be made by you either!). Almost like browsing through a bunch of classified ads with items for free, woo hoo!

Anybody else want to destash their craft stuff and give it to a more appreciating home? I sure have a box full I could get rid off!

I just whipped up these two cuties. One is an Owl on white and brown beads, the other a snail on blue and irridescent faux pearls.



23  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Every rodent needs a pimped out bed ;) on: February 14, 2007 09:54:31 PM
These are more designed for smaller rodents like rats, hamster, gerbiles, mice, etc but I plan to design larger ones for ferrets, guinea pigs, sugar sliders etc. They are reversible, so when it comes to the winter you can turn the fleece inward, for summer the cotton or the silk inward. Comments welcome!  Wink
24  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Owlette branch scarf on: February 03, 2007 06:45:37 PM
I just made this Owlette his/her winter scarf. I appliqued it on to dark brown fleece with surounding branches and voila, a baby owl scarf.

26  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My first earrings, wooot! on: January 31, 2007 02:26:57 PM
My first attempt at earrings. The longest hang down at 2inches, so they're all pretty modest in terms of length. Opinions or critisim?

27  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Who doesn't like Mario Bros??? on: January 28, 2007 02:32:14 PM
Well It's my husbands bday on monday so i figure why not make him mario bro themed cushions for his guy room! Everything is done from scratch. I appliqued buttons for eyes, hand embroidered his mouth and the rest is felt and the whole face is hand stitched on for the goomba cushion. The mushroom is all fleece with felt black eyes, but i obviously stitched the head on way off to the side so it's messed up. I'm gonna give him the mushroom today since i'd be too embarassed if he opened it infront of everyone tomorrow. Comments appreciated!
Size reference to my hand

28  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Sewing satin is no fun on: January 04, 2007 10:03:57 PM
Well i worked on this bag on and off for 3 days and double sewed the seams so it will with hold its future contents, whatever they may be. I sewed wide satin ribbon along both sides, then skinnier satin ribbon onto the inner pocket. The pocket isn't uneven, just part of the lining is covering it in the pic. Outside is corduroy type fabric, inside is satin. Comments?

Thanks for checking my bag out  Wink
29  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / I ain't no pro but i can make a sturdy bag :P on: December 30, 2006 05:03:40 PM
For christmas i made my mother a large tote bag to carry all her misc supplies to church in. Its corduroy fabric with gold shimmery accents, aswell as a patchwork pocket inside and ties for closure. The bottom is designed to have that structured square look just it's hidden well in the design. She specifically asked for a large bag with only one strap, not two so this is what she got for christmas and she loved it.
 It's only my 3rd bag attempt so be gentle on me.  Wink

30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Reversible Fleece hat(a first!) on: December 30, 2006 04:57:03 PM
My mother wanted a nice warm fleece hat for those cold canadian winters. I've never made a hat but i'm up for challenges so i made a reversible double fleece layered one for her. Made from dark red and dark grey fleece and the appliques are a snowflake with surrounding smaller flakes, then a diamond/argyle type pattern on the other brim of the hat. When she flips over the brim she has her self a new design.  Cheesy
Comments? Sorry no action shots folks.
