Swap name: Ongoing Offer What You Have (Crafts or Supplies) Swap

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Miss Violaceous

Swap runs: January 25 through February 28

Details:
If you a) have crafts lying around that you've made
    or  b) enjoy making things for other people
    or  c) want to de-stash supplies
...then this swap is for you! To join you must have at least five things that you have made/would like to make/want to trade.

To join, first PM the organizer with your application. Once you are approved, you are free to claim something and post your list.

This is an ongoing swap: Claim an item from the list of the last person who posted, and post your own list in response. It makes a chain. When we get to the end of the month, the very last person to post a list will be the first person to post a list at the beginning of the next month.

Once someone claims from you, you have two weeks to get the package in the mail.  

New swappers are allowed to have one claim outstanding at any time, Friend of Craftster's get 3 claims and everyone else gets 2 claims. A claim is "outstanding" from the time you post about it to the time your partner receives it.

Do not sign up unless you are willing to send outside of your country if necessary.

If the swap stalls (no one claims for several days while your list is up) you should add more items or consider combining smaller items into one package. Check out the first round and the second round. if you need help figuring out the scope of what to put on your list. It was typically in the $5-$10 range, from a half a yard to two yards of fabric depending on weight and fanciness, small accessories, grab bags of yarn and notions, things of that nature.

Swap Organizer meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES


Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES


Format:

I'm Miss Violaceous, and having been PM'd by the organizer to say I am approved I would like to claim rosali for a knitted cuff. My list:
-A yard of pink corduroy fabric *add picture here*
-10 x zippers *add picture here*
-1/2 yd blue cotton puppy fabric and 1/2 yd yellow cotton puppy fabric *add picture here*
- 4 x batik FQs *add picture here*
- 2 skeins of green red heart yarn *add picture here*

Then the next person posts...

I'm the craftster admin (Leah) and having been PM'd by the organizer to say I am approved I would like to claim Miss Violaceous for 4 x batik FQs. My list:
-A lined zippered makeup bag
-A fabric covered journal
-Set of 3 felt flower brooches
-Crochet hook/knitting needle roll-up
-Polymer clay pendant
Here are some photos of things I've made: *add links here*


Those of you who have followed my other swap postings know that I'm kind of a hardass about pictures and such, but this swap is a little different. It is important for you to thank your partner, be courteous and communicative, but a lot of the items are premade or stash, so pictures aren't crucial. However, DC numbers are mandatory for people in the U.S. sending to other people in the U.S., and everyone else must keep their receipts. I will be giving feedback in the following way:
-  great swapper: for those who follow all the rules
-  good/poor communication:  where applicable
-  sent late/early: where applicable
-  no dc number: failed to comply with the rule about using a delivery confirmation number for packages within your own country


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer Miss Violaceous by private message:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
-Name of swap:
-Craftster username:
-Email address:
-Your real name:
-Mailing address:
-Are you a Friend of Craftster or have you been a swap angel (with proof in profile)?:
-Your list of at least five items (crafts you can make/have readymade or details of supplies you wish to offer):


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

I'm going to claim the green/floral grab bag from roxybaboxy. Smiley I'm in the US (South Carolina) this is my first claim.

My list:
Fabric pick one or two I'm trying to clear out space!:
Tie-die swirls:

Stripes:

Pinks, The heart fabric is only availible for stuffies. all others still availible:


upholstery fabric?

This one's a quilt front:


- Plastic Charms:

- Metal Charms:

- 2 syrofoam antenna balls that look like Pool balls (#8)
I was planning to make earings with these but I never will.
-One entire plastic grocery sack full of Beer caps (varing brands) You will get one slider zip lock sandwich bag full.

Stuffies in need of homes and finishing (pic one and or combine with a fabric above):



Scrap fabric grab bag:

There is more than is pictured here but I couldn't fit it all in the pic. most peaices are areound 4 inches square but not perfect. there are also some larger and smaller pieces. Smiley

I'm willing to make tote-bags with any of the fabrics. (not the scrap grab bag) I can also make a stuffie or two with them using the pattern from sewing stars here. if you want to combine a stuffie with something else ask me in a pm. Smiley

I will try to add measurements as needed.

ok, tell me if this is too greedy ;P
I claim roxybadoxy for: sundae stamp, mesh stuff (just some), the letter stencils, and the orange shirt.  Is that too much?  ^^;; - if it is, just the first 3 things then.

my list:

1. Zippers!!! pick 1-15, if you claim 7 or less you can claim with something else.  I have almost every length and every color, it's insane Wink

2. pink/red stripe strech fabric- 28"x59"
3. purple/pink/white stripe fabric- 44"x92" - no strech


4. novelty yarn grab bag (3-4 skeins/hanks/balls of my choosing- you can specify colors you like/don't like but selection is subject to change)


5. lace grab bag (5-8 kinds, depending on length) - can claim with something else


6. tie flowers- make on request, can claim with something else

these are just samples- choose from ties below.
buttons in center subject to change
these are great for attaching to pins, etc, but will come on their own for your crafty pleasure Wink

7. ties- choose 2-4 from below (yes, I have duplicates... and then some), all ties are new - can claim with something


8. Hand carved rubber stamp (from eraser)- I'm quite new at this, so don't expect perfection, but we can work together to pick a design of your choice that I'm confident enough to carve Wink - can claim with something else
sample of a stamp I have made:

and stamped on to fabric with fabric paint:

prints will probably be clearer if you have an ink/stamp pad... I used that little cheapo paint brush you see in the first picture to paint the fabric paint on... haha

more soon!

I'd like to claim pikabean for a yarn grab bag. I love greens and blues so anything in that color range would be great. (if you have any for felting I'd be totally greatful)
This is my second claim. Smiley

Pinks, The heart fabric is only availible for stuffies. all others still availible:

I want to claim Eliea for the : Zip lock baggie full of Beer caps  & the pink heart fabric.. but I have a question... I want to take the heart fabric off your hands...but what do you mean "only available for stuffies?"  Will I be legally bound to only make stuffies with it??  Tongue  Anyway... here's what I have to offer....

*one yard of this blue bandanna pattern material. 100% cotton.


*one yard of this sweet baby material. 100% cotton.

This pic came out alittle dark...it's a brighter white withsoft pastel colors.

*one set (of 6) Andy Warhol Soup Can coasters.  I made these as an angel package & I liked them so much that I made another set.


*one ziplok snack sized bag of misc. glass beads.  Oooo pretty.


*one tooth fairy bag, made by moi (did I spell that right?).  They have snap closures, so not to wake the toothless ones & ruin the mystique of the fairy.  I have these patterns available but I have a Ton of fabric that I can make one custom if you like.


*one 1lb. bag (minus 4 pieces) of large cabochons



*one package of fun yarn (never used).  Back of roll says "71.7 yards"


*one package of really cool feather trim
