1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Raggedy Ann Skirt, YAY! on: September 08, 2007 12:11:16 PM
I made myself a Raggedy Ann costume for Halloween this year, and I need to find a top to go with it, since I have no shirt-sewing skillz... But I wanted to show off my crafty little RA skirt anyway, lol!
Here she is...



and

I made a wig too, I have to trim to so it's more Raggedy-ish.



But I need to find an easy-to-do top idea... thank goodness I have 2 months to go! Smiley
2  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Crazy Quilt Block Swap ~ Angels Needed! on: October 01, 2005 08:33:50 AM
Include the following information:
Swap Name: Crazy Quilt Block Swap
Original Thread link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=48042.msg525417#msg525417
Gallery thread link: No Gallery Yet - waiting until quilts are done Smiley
# of Flakers: 2


The Crazy Quilt Block Swap was where 12 people each crafted 12 squares, and mailed out one to each of the other swappers on the list. That way we all ended up with one square from each swapper... then once we made our quilt tops, we'd get to see how different they all looked even though they contained the same "ingredients"! The blocks did not have to be any specific pattern or style, "Crazy" meaning **anything goes** as long as it is washable and child-safe.

The list of swappers needing angels is as follows:
(Note to self and for Mods - angels in bold = package received by their person.)

nessagurl found! thanks kaesea!
opiate_rose found! thanks philodendron5!
pibbgirl found! thanks craftsbian!
princess_me found! thanks TessTessi!
hairstylinmama found! thanks orange_sunset!
kayla found! thanks penguino!
zenochka found! thanks highway16!!
jankeldesigns found! thanks kayla!
juja found! thanks cheekymamaof2!!
_Steph_ found! thanks ongir!!


Each person needs two quilt blocks made for them in a finished size of 12"x12". They should be mailed out in a 5x7 envelope with the squares in a ziplock/plastic bag to keep them from getting harmed on the way, and postage should only be about 60 cents or so per envelope.

These ladies did fantastic work on their blocks, and I hope that we can find angels for them all, they so deserve it!! Smiley Smiley

Thanks!
Steph
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / a "this is what I have" swap? on: September 11, 2005 04:42:50 PM
This idea might not be new, but I have been thinking it for a while... <can you hear the wheels turning LOL?>

Anyway I have SO many cool craft supplies from projects I stared but then got bored of, and it is such a waste to have them just sitting here. I have fabric, some beads, ribbons, jewelry wire, tons of yarns, cool magnet strips and glass marbles ~ you know, the usual crafter's treasure box LOL! Anyway I was thinking the other day "I wish I knew someone who could use this stuff, I wish we could swap supplies instead of crafts!"

So my proposed swap would go as follows:
When you join, you PM me with what you have to offer. I'll post one big list with all the offers, and everyone gets to pick one thing (or however it breaks down) they want... then, the swap would be an A --> B --> C swap as opposed to A <--> B since that'd be better for matching people up.

Does that make sense? Or, maybe there's a better way to do it... any thoughts?

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / adjustable length circular needles? on: August 02, 2005 06:12:42 PM
i have done a few projects on circs that are decreased (hats, bags, etc) and i can't seem to manipulate the needles so that my work doesn't get stretched... are there adjustable circs so that when i go from 80 c/o sts down to 5 to 8 sts on the row, it'll always fit? newbie knitter here lol...

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Need Flower pin pattern please... felted flower pin? on: July 12, 2005 08:03:25 PM
I have been dying to make one of those felted flower pins that I see so many of, and I can't find a pattern anywhere. Do any of you know of one, or have a tutorial out there I can use? Would strictly be for myself or to make for swap partners, nothing I want to resell, if that's a concern.

Thanks in Advance! Smiley
