11  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: DIY KIT round 9. (Sign ups 22/may/07 til 6/june/07; Send Outs by 29/june/07) on: May 21, 2007 06:55:48 PM
Oh, cool! I'm interested, but I have a couple questions first. Smiley

- Are we signing up to send to multiple people, or are you going to match people willing to make multiple kits with each other? Just because it makes a difference if I'd be making, say, three identical kits for three different people versus three different kits for the same person. Smiley

- If we make kits that involve patterns (sewing, knitting, etc), do they need to be original or "freeware" if we aren't buying another copy of the pattern and including that in the package? I'm honestly not sure what's acceptable here, and since most of the patterns I have on hand are from books (so I'd probably be sending only one pattern from a book with ~30-odd, but still a published pattern) . . .  Huh

- Are there any guidelines as to what needs to be included in a kit? Like, most swaps do the small/medium/large item breakdown; does this one, and if so, does it apply to putting the kit together or to the item that the kit makes?

Thanks in advance! Smiley

Hee! I agree, the voodoo doll especially is great. And that definitely looks like the Little Miss/Mister series to me; if it is, great idea, knitty! And if not, it still looks cool. Smiley

Oh, the scarf is gorgeous! And the drawing is even more so.  Shocked (It reminds me of one of my other hobbies, In Nomine, hee!)

I agree with raycheezy; love the purse. Smiley (Or is it a glasses case? It looks sort of like one, but I have an optometrist appointment this weekend, so maybe I'm thinking too much about glasses. Wink ) The keychain is also cute, and hee, Candyland! Perfect for Gluttony. Smiley

Oh, cool! I'll have to send her the link. Smiley --and wow, I thought you'd just found a set of seven images somewhere; they looked similar enough . . .  Shocked Neat!

Nice package, Raquel! Smiley If you get access to a better camera, I'd love to see better photos of the coolness.

Redheadgeek, the patches are great. Cheesy (My mother fell in love with Sloth. She's not sure why, but she loves that one especially. *laughs*)

Oh wow! The bag is neat, and I love the cute little piglets. Cheesy Leopard-print Luxuria is a great idea!

(Superbia means Pride/Vanity, yeah. Smiley )

I finally got to open my package!

. . . unfortunately, the post office apparently wasn't too careful with it: some of redheadgeek's swap items were damaged, and one appears to be destroyed.  Angry (I say "appears to be" because, on a partial unwrap, I could feel that it was in pieces; I haven't unwrapped it all the way to see just how bad the damage is, but it's definitely bad.) Which is a real shame, because the swap items are wonderful.

Redheadgeek and I did one large all-sins item and seven small items (one per sin). For the small items, she painted ceramic mugs with the names of the sin and neat patterns; for the large item, she made an AMAZING quilt. My pictures don't do justice to it at all; the main fabrics are gorgeous red and orange, a pretty tie-dyed-ish fabric on the back, and a black and red satin border. I have no idea where she got the pictures for the sin squares; screenprinting, maybe? If so, they came out REALLY well.

Photos!



The Wrath mug got chipped around the top, which annoys me especially because I think I like its design the best. Flames, yay! Next to it is the Wrath square on the quilt (which I did for all of them).



Sloth came through intact, whew. There's no pattern on the mug -- very Slothful, redheadgeek.  Wink



Speckled Pride mug, which lost its handle. I think the Pride square is one of my favorites off the quilt.



The Greed mug and its little green dollar bills is great! Second favorite mug, definitely. Smiley



Gluttony made it through okay! (As you can see from the fact that its handle got photographed. Wink )



Envy also lost its handle, drat.



No mug picture, because Lust is the one that got really damaged, but I love the quilt square here, lots.



Shot of the back of the quilt! It looks more orangey in the photo than it really is, but you can get a sense for the pattern and all. Smiley



And the piece de resistance, a shot of the whole quilt (awkwardly) draped over my bed (so I could photograph the whole thing at once).

I love this so much, redheadgeek. Thank you! Cheesy

. . . I don't think I'm going to stop grinning for awhile.  Grin I am SO glad you liked, seriously. Cheesy And I promise I'll post yours on Friday! (It figures that this week is the one week I don't get to go home early, bah. Smiley )


For the record: the poetry was actually something I found online, and if anyone wants, I'll happily post a link. The animals were made with patterns from Carolyn Vosberg Hall's "Sewing Tiny Toys", although I did tweak one or two of the patterns a little; I picked them based on www.deadlysins.com, and swapped out two for animals that were easier to make I thought fit better. And the big doll was based on http://dollmaker.nunodoll.com/nekomimi, with changes to the head pattern and face instructions, and freeformed clothing.

My partner's package arrived today! Cheesy But I won't be able to open it or post until Friday afternoon or evening, sadly. (I'm in college, but I had it sent home to make sure it got picked up immediately.) I'll definitely be posting ASAP on Friday, though; I can't wait to see what's inside! Cheesy
