I claim disneybelle for fabric from ikea  (I'm in Westchester, OH  I'm hoping I can find something you listed)--if not then a surprise inspired by your wist.

This is my 1 claim, 0 sent, 0 received.  ( It appears I'm late on 32 but she and I have a personal swap going and I'm sending both at the same time to save on postage)


I'm 31 years old, I'm a stay at home mom of two , living in OH next to the new IKEA that just opened.    I love trying all crafts; I have crafting ADD.  I dont really collect anything, except crafting supplies.  I would prefer to make gifts instead of buying them if I have time, and my new goal is to sew my daughter a simple summer dress, but my sewing machine and I are not on great terms.  I am very sensitive to scents, so PM on those.  I like using a lot of words and explanations and I have always had a problem with run-on sentences.

Crafted Items
  I like anything small....miniature anything makes me smile. 

I would love some reusable grocery bags like this:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177482.0
They do NOT need the folding pocket

 Felt food for my kids.pancakes and pizza would be WONDERFUL!

  mosaics....  Love mosaics.  They don't have to glass or ceramic or very large.  Paper, polymer clay, pebbles...small stuff like this....
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=204357.0

 polymer clay magnets-food, faces, animalswhatever

  Make your own stamp starter kit.  It doesn't have to be a store bought kit, just a couple supplies and a note or two on how to start.

  Black and white photos of nature.  Any size.

  Damn it Doll.  One of those that you can beat against the wall when you are really pissed off I also like these.  I think they are very funny, however Im more of a sh*t, damn, piss type, a little more mild I guess.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=227161.0

  I could really use some sort of big project bag with a shoulder strap.  I am out a lot with the kids and like to bring things with me.  I like softer material vs. nylon.

Either this pattern or a doll or animal made this way.  I had one when I was little and would love to have another. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8087618

I want to make an I spy quilt, so any interesting fabrics that I can fussy cut.  Probably need to be at least 4 in square in size...scraps are great. ( I spy quilts are a quilt made of little pieces of fabric with pictures on them.  Ex. A frog, a rainbow, a train, bugs, whatever...then you can play I spy with the kids.) http://www.gammon.com.au/helen/quilts/

Crochet or felt animals, food, etc.


 Stamps and ink pads.  I would love ink that is for fabric.  Either hand made or bought (or used) stamps of anything really. 

  A sundress pattern for a size 7ish girl.  I dont know how patterns work, Ive never actually tried sewing from one, but used would be great.  And EASY level.

Handspun yarn.  I have never used any, but it all looks so beautiful.

Supplies

Make your own stamp starter kit.  It doesn't have to be a store bought kit, just a couple supplies and a note or two on how to start.

This book http://global.yesasia.com/en/PrdDept.aspx/code-j/section-books/pid-1004536033/  in case link didn't work it is a Japanese book Crochet Motif Item


Anything that you are great at or love doing.   Like to Mod Podge everything you see? Make Journals?  Anything you would like to share would be greatly appreciated.  I like being surprised!

Extras

Im toying around with making my son a train collage.  Any pictures real or drawings of trains would be greatly appreciated. (cut from magazines, old books, etc.)

I've got summertimerolls for crocheted food/animals.

This is my 2nd claim (1 sent, 0 received [but it's on its way!]).

I live in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA with my husband and two ferrets.  I knit and crochet obsessively, but my day job as a researcher/editor holds me back!  I also enjoy reading, writing, camping, and cooking.  My three favorite authors are Shakespeare, Steinbeck, and Whitman. I've been experiment with vegan baking for a while, but I've recently taken the plunge and become a full-time vegetarian.  I like earth tones, greens, and pinks.  I dont usually like bright colors.  I like unique leaves, animals, and geometric designs; interesting and unique, but not too funky.  I dont eat/use anything with high fructose corn syrup or oils preceded by the words hydrogenated," partially hydrogenated, or interestified. Basically, I'm all-natural in the food department.

I claim her for a tea wallet and embroidered hand towels for the kitchen. 

This is my fourth claim, zero sent, three received. 

A little bit about me: I am a 27 year old woman, wife, mother, daughter, sister, student, and special educator.  Family plays a large part in my life as does the outdoors. I live in Maine and we hike, bike, canoe/kayak, geocache, camp, walk, and do just about anything except for organized sports if it takes place outdoors.  I also like to read, play with my kids, host family dinners/events, and (of course) craft.  My favorite crafts are sewing (clothing for my children, quilts, bags/purses), scrapbooking (although I have taken a brief break from it for right now), crocheting, and embroidering.  I would like to learn (have patterns) for how to make felt food and also learn how to make the polymer pendants.

Crafts:
Embroidered wall art.  I like the bird and trees from this one http://reprodepot.stores.yahoo.net/haempaande.html
and would love pretty much anything nature themed as long as it is on a white fabric with no pattern to the fabric or on white, natural, or dark blue linen.

Toddler Nap Mat such as this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=221179.msg2384792#msg2384792

Colorful Sock Monkey

Headbands and/or embellished barrettes for the 10 year old

Embellished hair ties and/or barrettes for my 4 year old

Small crocheted animals (farm and/or woodland)

Pinafores in sizes 5/5t/6 in fun prints preferably blue/brown/pink colors but the middle child is fairly easy going

Felt food veggies or sets (no pizza as we have a fabulous set and no meat cause that really isnt part of our meals but perhaps breakfast or sandwhich or pasta . . . )

A bag such as this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178244.0  I particularly like the polka dots but would enjoy anything spring like.

A yarngasm from Dulcinea (as they look so exciting)

Wallet such as this (tutorial at the link): http://babyangelsparadise.blogspot.com/2007/12/so-i-needed-wallet.html




Supplies:

MY BIGGEST WISH: A kit form this website http://www.dancingraindolls.com/friendshipkits.html  We would like golden straight hair, girl, blue eyes, fair skin tone.  We'd really like the 16 or 18 inch kit. 

Yardage of fabric featuring elephants (not circus please) or monkeys or anything forest like (cute forest not actual forest) or novelty (lemons, goldfish, bikes, etc.)

Embroidery Hoops (wooden please as I am going to use them as frames for some embroidery)

A polymer clay pendant making kit with instructions

Embroidery Patterns from sublime stitching→Kurt Halsey, Camp Out, Unicorn Believer

Bend the Rules Sewing by Amy Karol

The Creative Family by Amanda Soule

Linen→Used or Thrifted pretty much any color

Anything from/inspired by my wist: http://www.wists.com/girlosun_9 (except the scarf on there as nofury already has made it Smiley )



Extras:

I claim mimw for thrummed mittens

Be right back

This is my 5th claim, 3 sent/received

I'm in Massachusetts US, I do mostly knit, but I also crochet, spin, and used to cross-stitch, embroider and a little bit of tatting. I like the cooler colors (blues, purples, greens) but a little oomph of the red/orange/yellows doesn't hurt either. Nothing holiday themed please - I like being able to use my things all the time, not just a few weeks a year  Grin

My list, in no particular order -

Crafts
 
a 'dishwasher fairy' doll - in our house, the 'dishwasher fairy' empties the dishwasher when I don't see or ask anyone to do it. I doubt it's very big, maybe 5-6" (27-30cm) and doesn't come around too often Smiley

small zippered pouches to keep all the loose stuff in my purse a little less loose Smiley

decorated (and absorbent Smiley) kitchen towels, potholders, etc

polymer clay crochet hook or tatting shuttle

Teeny bead-topped knitting needles
(I have the 'plain' knitting needles I can send if there's a beader who can figure out how to attach the beads securely)

tawashis (japanese style scrubbies - small-ish, acrylic yarn discloths)

pocket tissue holder (sewn, crocheted, knit, whatever you like)

handdecorated small notes cards to include in swap packages Thanks Mlsocci74!

cotton soap sack with handmade soaps

'flat' (I think it's called a "sling" style?) shoulder purse

rubik's cube stuffie (this idea)

decorated ID badge reel like this (doesn't have to be clay-decorated, it was just the 1st pic I found)

double-stitch markers or any stitch markers for small needles (US size 3, 3.25mm or smaller)

tote bag Thanks GirlOSun!

laides crocheted kippah in this design but in purples and/or blues. Or any other pretty,  but not really lacy, design

neckwarmer/cowl/shortscarf to wear with a pine green coat or an earwarmer/headband to use instead of a hat (I don't look good with the squashed hat-hair look  Wink )

Supplies

1 1/2" (4cm) cotton fabric squares (any color except neon-bright, and no holiday themes please)

pretty 100% cotton flannel I can use to make cloth pads (not 'kid-cutesy' please, and no faces) Thanks NoFury!

bamboo handled crochet hooks (US sizes F, G, or H)

assorted acrylic worsted weight, any color, about 50-75yds each (it makes for good tawashi and amigurumi) Thanks Dulcinea!

Casein Knitting needles

Flex knitting needles (they look like circulars that have been cut in half)

New Pathways for Sockknitters book by Cat Bordhi
Cool Socks, Warm Feet by Lucy Neatby
Andean Folk Knits by Marcia Lewandowski
(pre-owned books in good condition are just fine with me)

something from, or based on, my etsy favorites

Extras
Chocolate, plain or with nuts (unless you want to share with the hubby - he likes the mint & fruit-filled chocolates)
tea, hot chocolate mixes
Gone With The Wind (paperback book) by Margaret Mitchell
