I claim Banga for a wisty surprise.

3rd claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

I live in Wilmington, NC. I'm a vegetarian: somewhere between semi & ovo-lacto (AKA I do eat fish). I love Japanese art and culture. Anything crafted out of Japanese fabric would be wonderful. I love green & nature. I have a kitty, and we live together in a downtown apartment. I'm into the wonder of bamboo: just got some yarn in another swap!!! More than anything I definitely prefer stuff that can be used! I'm in an apartment, and as said by others, space is a premium!


Crafted:
Kimono inspired hoodie: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177160.0
Duvet cover like this but with green on tan: http://greenergrassdesign.com/amenitytwigduvetalmondandcocoa.html
Shirt: http://www.brigitte.de/kreativ/selbermachen/wickeltop/index.html
Hipslinger: like the one on 33, not the rounded ones: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=31379.300
Picture of my cat: pastels or something. Life-like would be great! I can e-mail pics.
Place mats for work: place mats with pockets for silverware, etc. Can match or not. Can have matching napkin (12" x 12") or not...That's kewl. Thanks girlosun_9! Could use more, I'm sure!
Laptop bag: if the fabric has green leaves on it, that would be PERFECT!
Cloth napkins: finished size 12" x 12". This is meant as an add-on if needed. Know what I mean? Just one from you is fine. I would like to have a wonderfully mis-matched collection. I think it would be neat to get one from different people in this swap. Smiley ***NEW*** Yeah! I'm getting 1 so far! Thanks Therisa!
Infinity Dress: but without the circle skirt. Would prefer an a-line...think that's what it's called. ***NEW***
Infinity Shirt: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=104089.msg1009967;topicseen#msg1009967 ***NEW***

Fabric scraps: I was in another swap recently (***gasp!***) and my partner sent me the leftover fabric scraps from the various items she crafted. I thought this was kinda neat, so if you would like to do that do, then kewl. Smiley ***NEW***

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Hello! I'm in Florida, USA and this is my list:

CRAFTED:

I LOVE BambiKhantastic's octopus hoody: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=80615.msg846925#msg846925
I would love something like this as either a T-shirt, ribbed tank, or a hoody. What I love about it is the size of the image and the placement, the subject matter (sealife), and the artistic ability. These colors are great as is, but I would wear this or something similar in any colors. Size medium would be best and I love the plain Hanes tees in size L in the boys section at Wally World.
$I know hoodies are expensive so I will send you a hoodie to decorate for me  if you'd like.$

A colorful and/or decorated knee-length skirt
(19" - 21" long). A-line, wrap, or something that doesn't hug like a pencil skirt does. Please no ruffly ruffles, tiers, gathered waist or elastic waist. I'm size 4, but PM for measurements if necessary.

A pair of light-weight cotton pajama pants
with one or two back pockets.

MP3 player accessories.
I really need a casing for my earbud cords. I have a specific design in mind for a knitted casing that would be like a turtleneck that I could scrunch down when using them. I don't like to knit, nor can I get the hang of i-cord, which is what I think would be perfect for the task. I tried crocheting something, but it didn't work well. A pouch to keep the player and buds in would be neat, too, with maybe a strap on the pouch so I could hang it on a doorknob or hook so I will have a reliable place for it. Right now the whole contraption looks like a wiry dead worm that had its last and very painful throes of life on the couch, coffee table, or wherever I ended up tossing it.

Set of embroidered queen-size pillow cases.
Here are some examples of ones I like:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=162104.msg1639401#msg1639401
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=94274.msg913587#msg913587

A sturdy change purse.
Something with a little more oomph to it than a simple zippered pouch.
This is for all my coin change that wallows in the bottom of my pocketbag. Please make it so it closes all the way so the change won't fall out when I do cartwheels down the street. I'd also like it to be somewhat rigid, not floppy like how quilting cotton is. So I'm thinking materials like duck cloth, vinyl, heavy-weight interfacing, corduroy, leather, pleather, knaugahide, etc. would be well-suited for this project.
Here are some examples of ones I like:

Here's a pic of my dog: http://farm1.static.flickr.com/199/502938220_a24413fd86.jpg?v=0
Wouldn't he make the cutest Ewok?

A knitted dog sweater.
Here are some I like:

http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/buster/buster.html

HUGE WISH:
A set of embroidered burp cloths
(hand or machine) with funny words like these:
http://plainmary.com/grossburpset1.html - but in girlie colors. My good friend just had a new baby girl and I would love to give these to her! But I can't justify spending that much on them when, if I knew how to embroider, I could make them myself for a lot less, you know? I'll be visiting her during the last weekend in May to visit her and the new addition to her family. I'm so excited!

T-Shirt for the man in my life:
My man hates Hillary Clinton and he has been bugging me to make him a shirt that has a picture of her with devil horns and says "Hillary  is the devil!" but I don't have a printer that will do it.
Or a t-shirt with this image on it - http://www.sonheir.com/cubsjapanese.menjersey.php?gclid=CKqspY63_pICFRMHxgodnU4vGQ (he doesn't like the raglan style and wants it on a regular T-Shirt).
The shirt should be size Large in men's and a low-key color like cornflower, beige/khaki, gray, sage

NEW! One of those gorgeous slouchy neck warmers in a soft cozy yarn.
I like these:
http://www.littleknits.com/proddetail.php?prod=HSLaceSmokeRingA49
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8548487

NEW! Sprite slippers like these (size 6):
http://www.flickr.com/photos/15921435@N04/2230908475

CRAFT SUPPLIES:

NEW! A pattern to knit a scarf like this:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/53139463@N00/2233868318

Scented fragrance oils for soaps:
I love the following scents:
 - peppermint
 - pine
 - cloves
 - cedar
 - coffee
 - patchouli
 - lavender
 - grapefruit

A sturdy rectangular container for a soap loaf mold.
Something that's about 5" wide and 4" high and about 12" long. I will be lining it with wax paper so it doesn't matter what it's made out of as long as the sides are straight, without any incline or decline, and sturdy.

Poly clay supplies and accessories.
I have plenty of clay and I'm starting to get the hang of it and I really enjoy the craft, but I could use some tools or other things I haven't been able to find in my neck of the woods. I would especially like some liquid sculpey or whatever it is that I can "glue" two bits of clay together before baking the piece. Another thing that would be cool would be one of those bendy slicers. A little rolling pin would be nice, too. I use a ball-point pen right now or something else that's handy, but those are just not all that great at rolling out clay. Since I am not that big into the clay craft yet, I am not sure what else I need or want, so whatever you think might be helpful or useful. I am not into those press molds, though.

Crafting Books/Magazines (used is wonderful!):
 - "Omiyage : Handmade Gifts from Fabric in the Japanese Tradition"
 - "The Best of Interweave Knits: Our Favorite Designs from the First Ten Years"
 - "The Knitters Bible Knitted Accessories"
 - "A Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton - Handkntting Collection number Two"
 - "The Crochet Stitch Bible"
 - "Moda-dea Accessories Collection 1"
 - "Not Your Mama's Crochet: The Cool and Creative Way to Join the Chain Gang"
 - "More From Magnolia: Recipes from the World Famous Bakery and Allysa Torey's Home Kitchen"
 - "Perfect Scoop: Ice Creams, Sorbets, Granitas, and Sweet Accompaniments"
 - "The Knitter's Book of Yarn"
 - Interweave Knits: Old issues (I don't have any issues at all)
 - Interweave Crochet: Old issues (I don't have any issues at all)

Cold- or hot-process soap making kit.
I really enjoy melt-n-pour soap making so now I want to take the next step up and graduate to the real thing.

Screenprinting kit.

Spinning fiber for spinning yarn.
Plain or multi-colored. I would love some superwash or something a little more exotic than just plain wool. I have tons of undyed merino at my disposal, and I've been having fun dyeing it and spinning it, but I'm getting a little weary of it and I'd like something new to play with.

Anchor Magicline Yarn No.2
We don't have this in the states and it is gorgeous! I love the ones with pink the best.

Jawoll Cotton Yarn
We don't have this in the states, either, and I love it! Color #0177 is my favorite and #0176 is my second favorite.

EXTRAS:

 - Knee-high or thigh-high socks or tights (garage sale, thrift store, unwanted, etc.)

 - Any and all sweets

 - Old (working) crock pots (garage sale, thrift store, unwanted, etc.)

There are more ideas on my wists list: http://www.wists.com/liebschien

Used, second-hands, hand-me-downs, and recycled things are fine with me.

I'll add more later if it comes to that.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Colors: I prefer to wear shades, tones, and hues. I don't usually wear white or off-whites, bright primary colors, or neon colors. My favorites are petal pink, blue/greens (teal, aqua, turqoise), black, greens (lime, olive, army, moss, avocado), baby or sky blue, and plum. Please no brown. For other things like decorative items or accessories, bright cheery colors are nice in addition to the colors I like to wear.

When I get the chance, I like to travel, go backpacking, take bike rides, go kayaking, visit festivals, read on the beach, and just generally be outdoors and active. My style reflects these activities.

Thank you!!!

hey guys, don't make any more claims till the organizer can sort this out - the last couple of claims will probably need to be rolled back, due to 2 people claiming the second person.

thanks.

These colors are great as is, but I would wear this or something similar in any colors. Size medium would be best and I love the plain Hanes tees in size L in the boys section at Wally World.
$I know hoodies are expensive so I will send you a hoodie to decorate for me  if you'd like.$

2. A colorful and/or decorated knee-length skirt (19" - 21" long). A-line, wrap, or something that doesn't hug like a pencil skirt does. Please no ruffly ruffles, tiers, gathered waist or elastic waist. I'm size 4, but PM for measurements if necessary.

3. A pair of light-weight cotton pajama pants with one or two back pockets.

4. MP3 player accessories.
I really need a casing for my earbud cords. I have a specific design in mind for a knitted casing that would be like a turtleneck that I could scrunch down when using them. I don't like to knit, nor can I get the hang of i-cord, which is what I think would be perfect for the task. I tried crocheting something, but it didn't work well. A pouch to keep the player and buds in would be neat, too, with maybe a strap on the pouch so I could hang it on a doorknob or hook so I will have a reliable place for it. Right now the whole contraption looks like a wiry dead worm that had its last and very painful throes of life on the couch, coffee table, or wherever I ended up tossing it.

5. Set of embroidered queen-size pillow cases. Here are some examples of ones I like:

6. A sturdy change purse; something with a little more oomph to it than a simple zippered pouch.
This is for all my coin change that wallows in the bottom of my pocketbag. Please make it so it closes all the way so the change won't fall out when I do cartwheels down the street. I'd also like it to be somewhat rigid, not floppy like how quilting cotton is. So I'm thinking materials like duck cloth, vinyl, heavy-weight interfacing, corduroy, leather, pleather, knaugahide, etc. would be well-suited for this project.

10. HUGE WISH: A set of burp cloths embroidered (hand or machine) with funny words like these:
http://plainmary.com/grossburpset1.html - but in girlie colors. My good friend just had a new baby girl and I would love to give these to her! But I can't justify spending that much on them when, if I knew how to embroider, I could make them myself for a lot less, you know? I'll be visiting her during the last weekend in May to visit her and the new addition to her family. I'm so excited!

11. T-Shirt for the man in my life:
My man hates Hillary Clinton and he has been bugging me to make him a shirt that has a picture of her with devil horns and says "Hillary  is the devil!" but I don't have a printer that will do it.
Or a t-shirt with this image on it - http://www.sonheir.com/cubsjapanese.menjersey.php?gclid=CKqspY63_pICFRMHxgodnU4vGQ (he doesn't like the raglan style and wants it on a regular T-Shirt).
The shirt should be size Large in men's and a low-key color like cornflower, beige/khaki, gray, sage

CRAFT SUPPLIES:

12. Scented fragrance oils for soaps:
 - peppermint
 - pine
 - cloves
 - cedar
 - coffee
 - patchouli
 - lavendar

13. A sturdy rectangular container for a soap loaf mold.
Something that's about 5" wide and 4" high. I will be lining it with wax paper so it doesn't matter what it's made out of as long as the sides are straight, without any incline or decline, and sturdy.

14. Poly clay supplies and accessories.
I have plenty of clay and I'm starting to get the hang of it and I really enjoy the craft, but I could use some tools or other things I haven't been able to find in my neck of the woods. I would especially like some liquid sculpey or whatever it is that I can "glue" two bits of clay together before baking the piece. Another thing that would be cool would be one of those bendy slicers. A little rolling pin would be nice, too. I use a ball-point pen right now or something else that's handy, but those are just not all that great at rolling out clay. Since I am not that big into the clay craft yet, I am not sure what else I need or want, so whatever you think might be helpful or useful. I am not into those press molds, though.

15. Crafting Books/Magazines (used is wonderful!):
 - "Omiyage : Handmade Gifts from Fabric in the Japanese Tradition"
 - "The Best of Interweave Knits: Our Favorite Designs from the First Ten Years"
 - "The Knitters Bible Knitted Accessories"
 - "A Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton - Handkntting Collection number Two"
 - "The Crochet Stitch Bible"
 - "Moda-dea Accessories Collection 1"
 - "Not Your Mama's Crochet: The Cool and Creative Way to Join the Chain Gang"
 - "More From Magnolia: Recipes from the World Famous Bakery and Allysa Torey's Home Kitchen"
 - "Perfect Scoop: Ice Creams, Sorbets, Granitas, and Sweet Accompaniments"
 - "The Knitter's Book of Yarn"
 - Interweave Knits: Old issues (I don't have any issues at all)
 - Interweave Crochet: Old issues (I don't have any issues at all)

16. Cold- or hot-process soap making kit.
I really enjoy melt-n-pour soap making so now I want to take the next step up and graduate to the real thing.

17. Screenprinting kit.

18. Spinning fiber for spinning yarn. Plain or multi-colored. I would love some superwash or something a little more exotic than just plain wool. I have tons of undyed merino at my disposal, and I've been having fun dyeing it and spinning it, but I'm getting a little weary of it and I'd like something new to play with.

19. Anchor Magicline Yarn No.2 - we don't have this in the states and it is gorgeous! I love the ones with pink the best.

20. Jawoll Cotton Yarn - we don't have this in the states, either, and I love it! Color #0177 is my favorite and #0176 is my second favorite.

EXTRAS:

Knee-high or thigh-high socks or tights (garage sale, thrift store, unwanted, etc.)
Any and all sweets
Old (working) crock pots (garage sale, thrift store, unwanted, etc.)

There are more ideas on my wists list: http://www.wists.com/liebschien

Used, second-hands, hand-me-downs, and recycled things are fine with me.

I'll add more later if it comes to that.

Colors: I prefer to wear shades, tones, and hues. I don't usually wear white or off-whites, bright primary colors, or neon colors. My favorites are petal pink, blue/greens (teal, aqua, turqoise), black, greens (lime, olive, army, moss, avocado), baby or sky blue, and plum. Please no brown. For other things like decorative items or accessories, bright cheery colors are nice in addition to the colors I like to wear.

When I get the chance, I like to travel, go backpacking, take bike rides, go kayaking, visit festivals, read on the beach, and just generally be outdoors and active. My style reflects these activities.

Thank you!!!
