Not to rain on anyone's parade or anything but I'm adding to my list of offers: the teatowel topper (couldn't think of a better name) they are in my link on the first page, (purple, green, no chocolate!) you may also find them on http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=146104.0

kitten wrangler I really do love the soccer bags, and your cross-stitch is incredible! (just starting cross-stitch)

Welcome!

This store is called Pins all over the Floor
Pretty much because that's how my loungeroom looks whenever I'm making something.

1st item: Soccerball Bag


The two that I've made so far are open at the top - but I can attach the strap differently, and have two pentagon points forming a flap to close it off a little. Can also be made with a short strap, to use as more of a handbag.
Fabric choice is optional to an extent. Tell me what sort of colour/s, and whether you'd like plain, pattern, or design (floral etc). The rest will depend on what I can find in the fabric stores.


2nd item: Sushi Mat Bag


Again, you can choose fabric for the inside - with the same provisos as above. If you want or don't want the flower on the front I can leave it off, or find something else you might like as a decoration.


3rd item: Apron


I have no photo of this - the couple that I have made were made as Christmas presents, and have gone! As much as I'd love to make any of them for my fellow craftsters, designs B & C take a lot more time. Therefore, feel free to choose either A, E or D.
Choice of fabric is the same as above, and let me know if you'd like some sort of trimming like rick rack or ribbon. Again, supplies will be dependent on what I can source.


4th item: Venn Diagram pendant + wrist cuff.


I feel I should warn you that it's not made of anything expensive. It's a steel (?) ring, and plastic melting crystals on a leather thong. Colour choice is pink, blue, orange, green, white, yellow (if I remember correctly) in any combination. The wrist cuff will be made like the one in the picture, but to match the pendant.

 Shocked Oh my goodness.  The choices are getting even more difficult. 

Kitten Wrangler - just re-iterating that the soccer ball bag is stunning.

lol-lol - your stuff is fantastic.  Love the domino pendants.

I'm nearly finished my stuff for the shop.  Just need to take photos and other stuff.  Will probably have it up and running this afternoon.  Wink

Off to craft.......

oh good
great to see you lol-lol. lovely work. nice items. love the pendants!!

ok i hope its ok with everyone to discuss this, please let me know what you all think...

so i hope its ok......i want to gently remind us all, me incl, to check we r sending a good size parcel in return to our partners. if you need to tweek and add say a wee suprise etc go for it.
so.........basically...........what i am trying to say....

we r all trying to aim for minimum crafting 1hr (sml, send 2) but can be (up to you) up to max 2hrs(med send 1) per parcel. keeping things not too expensive to post. i dont like to think some people will be sewing larger items for hours and hours.  if you are offering a large bag and its taking more than 2 hrs let us all know so we can slip a little extra in.  Wink well thats how i feel we should be to be fair. watcha all think?
i am i too fairdinkum aussie about this. its just i have seen swaps go lousy cos of people not thinking/realizing how to balance a parcel.

anyhow i hope that came out sounding ok...  Undecided... Roll Eyes

everyone...you can modify or change items any time till sunday picking day. i dont mean make them huge. just if you feel an item wasnt as suitable u can swap or add. etc.

so quick small things should be in sets of 2 at least. or say tiny bobby pins set of 4 pairs.
a few girls are offering generous medium items. amazing items.
preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '_________________________________________________________')

ok so i am definitely going to add an item to the zipper pouch I am offering, either earings, hairpin set, bookmarks, magnets, hand made mini cards/ gift tags...anything else people like to see?
and I might add a wee suprise thing to the pendant sets too.
the pouches are embroidered.
i could also do a mini tote/simple shopping tote with embroidery. say a saying like shop til you drop or i came i saw i spent lol. would that be better?

ok enough said, let me hear from  you all.
sorry if i am a pain, tell me. and i dont want to confuse anyone. me included just want to chat about all this.

That sounds fair to me! I was just thinking how some of the items seemed more than 1 (or even 2) hour jobs!

I think I should start to photobucket my crafts...

I will have pics up today and start crafting too. I just got home from a  house-minding stint last night. Boy did I miss my craft supply! Grin
