An ongoing swap geared towards kids!
This is for child crafting/supplies - please do not list things other than for kids or to be used for child crafts

For people thinking of joining - you can join this swap at any time during the month.  When you see something that someone wants you can stake a crafty claim(on the last list or current list posted not one burried up by other posts Wink)  So you can pick what you want to make and when.  It will give you some crafty freedom.
The more the merrier with an Ongoing Swap so if you have kids or want things made for kids you know this will be a great swap for you!

Approval
Package sent
Package received
Question

This will help me stay organized.  Also, please include the send by date with any package sent or received.



How This Swap Works:
Please READ CAREFULLY! This swap works differently than most!

Try to imagine a chain.  The first link is the first person whose wish list is on page 1 (Person A) - that will be the craftster member who was the very last wish list from Ongoing Wish Swap 36.

Now, we want to put another link in the chain.  People will read that list and see if there is something they want to/can make from the list.

Someone (Person B) will claim Person A for some item on their wish list.  They post a reply to the thread that says I claim Person A for [item].  This is my X claim (however many times they have picked someone for example, "this is my fourth wish, with one sent, and three received, (meaning that this is the fourth claim they've made, one is in transit to it's destination, and three of the items have been received by the people they previously claimed).  Also add your location, and any preferences or aversions I live in Wisconsin USA, I am a vegetarian, and I am allergic to wool.

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPLY WITH YOUR STATUS WHEN YOU CLAIM SOMEONE!  This means you need to post who you are claiming and for what, how many claims you have made, including how many in transit and how many received, and your location/preferences/aversions.

Then comes the fun part!  After the introduction, Person B is the last link in the chain, and they post their wish list!!!  YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY ITEMS ON YOUR WISH LIST AS YOU WANT, HOWEVER YOU MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF SIX ITEMS FOR A CHILD.  You can join wanting to receive for a child other than your own.  THE MORE ITEMS YOU LIST, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF BEING CLAIMED QUICKLY.  Also site examples/links to tutorials/finished items, that helps A LOT


(Please have your list ready, this swap can move very quickly!  Please include your country at the start of your wish list). Person B will also PM Person A to get her address so they can mail the item when it is finished.   

Along comes Person C, who claims Person B for something on their list and the chain is built, link by link.  (If Person C wanted to make Person B a purse AND a stuffie, that would still count as ONE WISH.)  Then they post their list, and so on.

When you want to make a claim, you can ONLY pick from the very last wish list in the chain.  You can't pick anyone else in the chain - you can only connect to the very end of the chain, which is that last wish list posted.

After you have made your claim, you need to PM that person for their address.

Friends of Craftster are allowed 3 wishes at one time, others are allowed 2 wishes.  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one wish until your craft is received for this month.  Do not choose over your given limit.
 If you already have one claim that will be sent out late, please don't claim again until that one is sent out.

Become a Friend of Craftster!  Go here: http://www.craftster.org/subscribe.php

If you are at your limit of wishes, you can choose again once one of your partners receives, NOT when you send.
***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***

Let's keep the quality high here. I don't want to receive PMs with people concerned over the lack of quality of their items.  Please, just work your hardest to keep the bar high on the quality of items here!  Don't choose just for the sake of choosing; choose to make someone else a really AWESOME wish!

Now if the thread gets in a rut for a day, the person who made the last wish should add to their list if they can think of anything else, until someone decides to craft for them. Please make sure this is not you!

Unsure of where to find wish ideas?

Sending/Communicating/Feedback:
YOU HAVE TWO WEEKS TO GET YOUR ITEM OUT THE DOOR.
IF YOU DO NOT SEND A MEDIUM ITEM YOU WILL BE GETTING NEGATIVE FEEDBACK.
( the medium can be a couple small items etc as long as it adds up to a medium )
( A medium item equals two hours of crafting time or 20$ worth of store bought items )

Please be communicative if you are having any issues. If you communicate you still need to send your item in a timely manner.  Communication does not mean you can send as late as you want.  After one week past the deadline you will have negative feedback.  This is only temporary as it will be changed back once you fulfill your obligation for late item(s).  Do not choose to craft an item if you do not think you can meet these deadlines.

THERE WILL BE FEEDBACK FOR THIS SWAP
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
- did not follow item amount rule

We start with the person who claimed last in round 2 Sajona
I'll claim a chore chart! (and maybe non fighting spray if I can get my printer working!)

Hi, Im sajona from the UK, I have 4 kids, no pets and a IT consultant DH. We live in chaos just north of London .
I havent given a specific list as I am happy for you to use your imagination they love getting things in the post! The boys always seem to miss out on crafty goodies so do pick them if you can ☺

second claim of 3
1 sent, 1 received


S aged 14 : Spends his entire waking hours on the computer if he possibly can do or the Wii or XBOX360. He has grown up with Nintendo  - especially Mario so anything with that theme would go down well. He hates sports and is quite happy being a geek ☺
He loves music too especially Linkin Park.
Favourite programmes: Heroes and The Simpsons
Fave colours: blue and black
Fits size 15/16 Mens size small.
(received - a mario stuffie!)

J  aged 11 loves World War 2 tanks and all military stuff especially American and Japanese stuff.  His bedroom has this theme so any storage items, books, pictures that would work would be great.
Patterns: camoflage, WW11 planes and tanks, soldiers,
Loves drawing especially cartoons and marvel comic style heroes.
Favourite programmes: The Simpsons and Futurama
He fits age 10 t shirts (he is small for his age)
Some hats/scarves would be useful (nothing scratchy he is quite fussy LOL!)
Likes blue, green and red.
(received - a Dr Zoidberg stuffie Smiley )

N aged 6  has ADHD and is a bit of a handful! He likes Doctor Who in a big way!! He seems to like the classic series as much as the current one. Particularly Daleks and Cybermen. Also likes Spiderman and The Fantastic Four. Enjoys crafts and drawing.
He fits 7/8 clothes.
He likes all colours.
He could also do with cold weather gear and storage items plus drawing pads/colouring pens etc that are unusual.

N aged nearly 3 is a Disney Princess she is totally mad for Little Mermaid, Snow White, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast etc etc. Loves dressing up and drawing. She starts ballet this term.
Fits 3-4 size clothes. Loves pink, pink and more pink. Pretty typical for her age I suppose., She does like Hello Kitty too.  Her room is all pink and cream but not that cutesy. Could always use cooler weather clothes I like her in miniboden (www.boden.co.uk)style clothes slightly retro  and hardwearing/washable.

I claim Sajona for something for both N's (age 3 and 6), since the other 2 have already been sent something.
This is my first claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

I am a SAHM (atm, however I am currently looking for a parttime job, bleh) of 1 darling little boy who is 3 years old.  We live in North Carolina, USA.

Quentin - 3 year old boy
Currently wears size 3T/4T in shirts and 2T in pants (he is tall and skinny/long torso, 38in.tall/30lbs), size 6/7 in toddler shoes.  If you need actual measurements let me know. 
Loves Thomas/trains, cars (ie-HotWheels), SuperWhy, Clifford, Lazytown, Dora/Diego, Blue's Clues, Mario Bros, RockBand, pirates, dinosaurs, space/rockets (and lots of other things, just ask, he probably likes it)  OMG, I can't believe I almost forgot Spiderman!
Also enjoys cheese (in many wonderous forms, from quesadilas to cubes), cookies, ice cream, chocolate milk and fruit snacks.  (I promise he doesn't just eat these things, they are just on the top of the list of things he wants when I ask him what he wants for whatever meal)
Also likes trying to ride his new tricycle, running in circles around the house, gymnastics class, and "playing" soccer.
Likes watching KC Chiefs football with his daddy and grandpa every Sunday (they all have matching jerseys, it's really quite adorable).  Also UNC Tarheel basketball is big in this house.  (He also has a KU-Jayhawks grandpa and an UGA-Bulldogs grandpa pulling him in their directions, haha).
He doesn't really have a favorite color (at least not one that he will tell me, he just starts naming all the colors he knows), sticking to boy appropriate colors would be best (so no pinks or purples).

---------------------------------------------------------

Play Food/Play Kitchen items - I (with the help of my woodworking older brother) am converting a set of old bedside tables into a play kitchen for Christmas... so I will be needing play kitchen and food items, I have a whole booklet that I printed out of crocheted foods but I haven't had a chance to get them started.  Crocheted/felt/etc... please no faces on the items, there's nothing weirder than pretending to eat foods that have cute/funny faces.

Awesome shirts (long sleeve and short sleeve) or hoodie - please no iron ons (they do not last in my wash) - in any of his favorite things or check out the examples on his wist (link below, and yes I made my kid his own wist, haha)

Lounge pants/PJs in fabrics in his favorite things or some Christmas ones (I've even seen Thomas Christmas fabric!). 

Art for bedroom/bathroom (painting/embroidery/fabric/etc) - Bedroom is transportation themed, bathroom is monkeys/jungle.  (Here is a link to my flickr set with pictures of both rooms-the only thing that is different now other than furniture being moved around is the Thomas curtain on the window, it's posted on here- http://www.flickr.com/photos/amystagner/sets/72157603919027797/)

Transportation themed (or Thomas themed) Bedding... blanket/quilt/sheets/pillowcases (please no fleece blankets, he has like 5 of them now)... twin sized.

This is a biggie, but this thing is just too cool, so I thought why not, I can't seem to figure out how to make it... http://www.shopatron.com/product/product_id=BOO801/514.0

Knit socks!  I just love knit socks but I can't knit myself and crocheted socks aren't as nice looking.

I-Spy bag.  These things are so neat!

Conductors hat - kid loves his trains.

Sewing/crocheting patterns for infants/toddlers/boys/girls (we plan on having at least one more, it might be a little while, but I have been collecting patterns so I will be ready when we do)

Mario (as in the Nintendo Mario bros) amigurumi - snugglably sized.

A set of cute/fun magnets (he has one of those magnet/dryerase/chalkboard easels) to play with (puzzles, alphabets, cars/trains/planes, etc...)

------------------------------------------------------------

his wist - http://www.wists.com/Qstag  (there are examples of most of the things on the list on here)

his blog - http://amystagner.blogspot.com

I claim brilor for a fun monster hat for her 6 year old!
This is my first claim, 0 sent, 0 recieved

Hey guys!  Im Heather, and me and my family live in Michigan.  We are big into nature, living green, recycling and stuff like that.  We love to hike, and we love things inspired by nature.   Ive got a kiddo, Alexander, and hes 8.75.  He turns 9 on December 22nd.  He loves Star Wars, Naruto, Avatar, Pokemon, Harry Potter, Goosebumps books, pirates, monsters, magic, all kinds of stuff.  He LOVES to read, like crazy.  He is super athletic, and very tall.  (he is only a couple of inches shorter than me!  It is scary!)
We just re-did his room last month. The walls are green, and the rest of the scheme is black, white, and silver/grey.  We wanted to give him a really nice, grown up room.  He is definitely a grown up kid.  He really really loves anything handmade.  He is the kind of kid who totally loves something more if it was made by hand. (I really lucked out!)
So heres some stuff he would LOVE:

Crocheted star wars guys: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_1&listing_id=14517559

Roll up chalkboard:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=13706821

Sock animal

A yoda poppet

A cool stenciled/screen printed/or sewn hoodie (size 12)  anything star wars, naruto, skulls, rock and roll, anything like that would be awesome!  We are into recycling clothing, so used, but nice hoodies newly stencilled are good too!

A stuffed octopus with long tentacles (hed love something big enough to be huggable)

An R2D2 stuffie like the one from last round, here, and also in my profile:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=268959.msg3034477#msg3034477

Thanks brilor!!!

A case for his leapster L-max.  We need something to travel with.  It can be just a large padded cosmetic bag, but it would need to have a pocket to keep the little game cartridges in it.  Ill get dimensions if anyone is interested.

A lunch bag for school (cleanable would be awesome!) like this one, but not flowery:
http://tumblingblocks.net/blog/index.cfm/2007/7/31/oilcloth-lunch-bag

A hanging pocket organizer in black/white/silver/green, to hang in his room:
http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/1583

A birdcage like this, except in boy colors (no pink or flowers!):
http://pretty-ditty.blogspot.com/2008/03/fabric-bird-cage-tutorial.html


Something cool and princessy for my neice, Emma.  She's 7, but she wears a size 12 in girls (she's a hefty princess!). 
-She'd dig cool stenciled or appliqued shirts. 
-A pretty princessy doll
-A stuffed fleece bunny or horse.
-A black apple doll, like this: http://www.marthastewart.com/article/black-apple-doll?rsc=fav_Homepage_Homepage

Anything made for her really needs to be pretty rough and tumble.  She lives in a house where things break easily.  Things that are washable are also a plus!

And my sister in law is having a baby this winter.  Its going to be a boy!  Her favorite color is baby blue.  Shes kinda into blingy stuff.  This will be her first baby, so she doesnt have any hand me downs sitting in boxes, and heres some stuff  Id love to giver her:

A diaper changing pad:
http://sewtakeahike.typepad.com/sewtakeahike/2008/07/diaper-changing.html

A cool diaper bag:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_12&listing_id=14154619

Baby booties

Any used but nice baby stuff would be great too!  Or any baby stuff that you love to make.


Thanks in advance!!!

pj pants- Disney theme of some sort would be nice.
stuffies- any type of fun monster or alien he just loves them! He still needs to sleep with something at night (shhh don't tell anyone)
he loves to wear hats! so any type of fleece, knitted or crochet animal or monster hat would be fun
He has a bean bag toss game that he loves and he would love to have some new bean bags to toss around (finishes size 4x4) would be great.

I claim brilor for some new bean bags.

First claim, 0,0

I am a SAHM to 4 kiddos.  We have 3 girls and 1 boy, 8yrs, 5 yrs, 3 yrs &  1 yr old.  We live in KY and have a small amount of living space for all 6 of us.  The sisters all love "the Bubs" very much.  He probably needs the most stuff since we have so many girly things. 

for Bubs:  (He has a surfer/skateboarder style with cool hair to match.)

Some cool surfer/skateboarder style stenciled/silkscreened/appliqued t-shirts - size 12 mo.

Layered sleeve tees stenciled/silkscreened with sayings "Bread Lovers Unite!" or "Yeah, Toast"  (yes, he's a bread man)

Cadet style hat

knit toque in browns/oranges

pj pants or sets (styled like Old Navy/Gap pants)  he is cloth diapered so he needs some extra room in the pants.  I love stripes in boyish colors.

He is very good with his hands and likes to manipulate things so we need some toys that are good for him to manipulate.

Wooden lock box toy like this: http://www.peapods.com/browse.cfm/4,667.htm

wooden freeform blocks like this:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=cat3_gallery_16&listing_id=15031092

Nuts & Bolts board like this (bottom of pg 36):
http://www.michaelolaf.com/08JC13toys.pdf


For the girls:

Hand drawn/painted artwork with their name, name meaning & scripture (ask me for the descriptions)

Wool Felt play food for their kitchen (any)

Hand puppets for 3 yr old.  Somethat look realistic like this:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=cat3_gallery_5&listing_id=9739568

Crocheted headbands that grip for 5 yr old.  Her hair is so thin it falls out of anything we use to put it up.  Like the large cream one in this post:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=232665.0

Pop Tab Belt for 8 yr old - she ADORES this but we don't drink can soda.

I claim CJKJ for hand puppets.

First claim, 0,0.

Here's my wishlist:

Hi, I am... already stuck... argh... (first ongoing wish swap, sorry...)
I am a mom of two great boys. I'm a she-nerd chaos machine, and I have passed this on to my lovely little nerdy chaos generators. Crafting is what keeps me going. And coffee Smiley
We live in Germany.

A word about German clothing size system: It refers to the height of the kids in centimeters, increasing in steps of 6, like for example: 104, 110, 116, 122, 128 etc. Sometimes I get US clothes for the kids and my experience is that they can wear clothes that are their age +1, but better ask before deciding upon a size.

The Big M: 7 years old, loves computers, trains, maths, sports and reading, volcanoes, food charts (although I don't want any goodies of that), Star Wars toys and LEGO and Playmobil. Favourite TV shows are Lazy Town and Vicky the Viking, Pettersson & Findus, Shaun the Sheep, Kim Possible and Nils Holgersson. Favourite Films include Monster Inc., everything Winnie the Pooh, Shrek, and Ice Age.
Favourite bands are Queen, Gorillaz and Prodigy (no, he is not allowed to see their video clips Smiley and his English is not yet good enough to understand the lyrics Smiley ). Favourite color is blue.
Wears size 128.

The Middle M (there is no smaller one, but we are not allowed to call him small Smiley): 5 years old, loves trains, train schedules, Benjamin Bluemchen, cats, and music, music, music. Favourite toys are LEGO and Playmobil, blankets, pillows and stuffies, and everything related to transport. Favourite TV shows and movies are same as his brother's, plus Sandmaennchen. Likes all kinds of music. Slight preference for red, orange and green.
Wears size 104, moving up to 110 soon.

Their bedroom is jungle-themed, in primary colors, mostly green. There's a train's sub-theme (actually, we have that in every room Smiley )

For most things, matching sets would be very nice, so if you want to pick the same item in two claims, or claim two, please do.
Please consider that anything my kids get to handle must be robust, that is everything must be sewn on tight and good, as we are all clumsy folk, and the little, eh, middle one is still not out of poking age.
No camouflage or war themed stuff please.

___________________ __

Hoodies (please PM me for head size, they have laaarge heads)

knitted hooded vest or sleeveless hooded jacket

papoose leather slippers (can give you patterns)

Anything themed to their favourite TV shows or movies, esp. stuffies or amigurumi

Stuffies from Gorillaz, esp one of Noodle when she wears her headphones (they'll never grow out of something that's so cool)

themed pillowcases for 45x45cm

From LazyTown:
A Pixel shirt like this:
A Sportacus hat (must be very soft) or scarf or anything Sportacus wears


A wall hanging for putting mittens in (preferably Ice Age/prehistoric themed, but every design is okay)

A volcano stuffie / pillow, or a volcano tote to keep our toy dinosaurs in it

I couldn't not include this: the R2D2 stuffie Smiley

A crafting bag for a boy (yeah right!) with possibly a reference both to crochet and spiderman or batman or one of the abovementioned themes, so that he can keep his crochet stuff (first monster purse on the way) somewhere really cool

themed Pyjamas or T-Shirts

Viking garb (everything but the tunics, as we already have these)

They have a fireman suit and helmet, but accesories are welcome (crochet fire extinguisher or fire extinguisher stuffie?)

cotton blanket with windows in it (to hang up for making a house), windows should be able to be closed

a cover for small matresses (vocabulary problem, sorry, but I can describe it: It should cover the whole matress not just the top, and be closed with a zipper or velcro, and the size is about 70x70x15cm (please ask for exact size, and if you need the size in inches)

and for my nephew and niece I am looking for Digimon amigurumi or stuffies, and tool belts.

I claim Ruby Copperhead for a stuffed Mike and Sully from Monsters Inc.  We'll see how well I can do.

This is (1,0,0) for me this round.

Im a 31 SAHM of two.  Olivia and Ben .  We live in Ohio, USA   Both of my kids are taking after me a little and love crafts.  They are used to me getting packages in the mail and have been asking to get their own.
Olivia is 7 and in second grade.  She has been taking karate for 2 years and LOVES it.  She is rather serious about it and her goal is her black belt. She's about half way there.   Although she is very tough in class, she has a quiet gentleness to her.  Like most little girls, she loves twirly dresses, fingernail polish, and hair accessories.

Ben is 4   and all BOY.  He is a ball of energy.  He too has just started karate classes and seems to really enjoy them.  Ben loves (not even a big enough word.) trains.  He always has, and I have a feeling always will.  He is FUNNY, just one of those naturally goofy kids.

I also have a niece and nephew that are 4 and 1 that I may list things for.  Actually I have 10 nieces and nephews but most much older.
And for the stuff:

Stuffies- funny, goofy non-normal ones

Felt food- we have pizzas.  Would love sandwiches, ice cream, tacos...etc.

t-shirts with something either embroidered or painted on...guitars, trains, cars, karate,boy things size 5 (long sleeves would be good too)
girlie things, princess, crowns, cupcakes, hearts, anything karate Size 8 girls.

Bath scrubbies

my biggest wishes right now are:
PJ pants for Ben size 5

Nightgown or pj pants for Liv size 8




Chore chart
-thank you Sajona

Finger puppets to tell one of the good ol stories.  Goldilocks, Red riding hood, 3 little pigsor any bible story

Puzzlesyou can find blank ones and color on them.  Train themes, karate themes, or some funky patterns

Voice volume controls.  I havent been able to figure out how to make these or I would already made them.

Homemade playdoh

Magic wands
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=253250.0 :update.  I have one for Liv, but Ben would still love one.

I spy bags

Headbands with the long fabric tails. 

Cool barrettes (this kid has seriously thick hair, so your normal plastic barrettes won't work.  they have to be this kind.  http://www.craftsetc.com/store/item.aspx?ItemId=85948&dep=85&cat=24&subcat=5&Search=Y

Anti-fighting spray.  You know you spray the cat if it is doing something you dont likeI need something I can spray the kids.
Sajona is also supplying me with some of this...how funny.

Supplies
The kids love having their own drawer of craft stuff.  This way Im not yelling DONT TOUCH THAT!

I claim summertimerolls for one set of pj bottoms for Ben (we'll see how long they take me to do).

This is my first claim of three allowed this round, none shipped, none received.

A little bit about us.  We are from Maine and spend A LOT of time outdoors; we hike, bike, walk, geocache, and explore.  Our newest activity is biking/riding in the royal carriage (read ride in the bike trailer behind mommy and give directions on how fast/slow mommy is going).  We are a fairly crafty family.  My ten year old loves bold colors and crafting unusual/different things out of craft materials.  My middle child likes pinks, purples, and browns as well as elephants; she also likes anything we call a craft project.  My youngests--who turned 2 several days ago) loves monkeys and soft fabrics. 


Crafted Items:
Some wrapples for our lunches--pears would be nice as well (pearples?) http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14455093

A cowl like this http://www.craftleftovers.com/blog/archives/433 to fit a 10, 4, and/or 2 year old.  ANy colors except pink for the the two year old.  It would also ahve to be non itchy yarn or it would never get worn.

 A felt pencil case like this http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.3a0656639de62ad593598e10d373a0a0/?vgnextoid=781f8b6244277110VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&vgnextchannel=66f3802fb632c110VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&lnc=66f3802fb632c110VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&rsc=organizing+tip+of+the+day_recipe_b  We strongly prefer wool felt but would be open to pretty much anything

Knitted Hats to fit my children.  The youngest is two, middle is four, oldest is ten--heads slightly bigger then average for the two year old and ten year old.

Colorful sock monkey

Felt Food (Sandwhich, Pizza, Breakfast Items, Produce)

Tote bag or bags with an outer pocket for bed time (a pocket for a book and a pocket for pjs).  The oldest likes bold colors and animal prints.  The middle child likes butterflies, purples, pinks, and browns.  The youngest likes monkeys and soft fabrics. 

Anything from/inspired by my wist: http://www.wists.com/girlosun_9 and there are a lot of ideas here, please feel free to craft something you would like to craft!

Gocco Cards with envelopes.   Deer, owls, trees, acorns, and/or pretty much anything nature inspired.  We are big on writing to friends/family and the children use these cards for that as well as for writing birthday letters.

Felted beads

Another I Spy Bag as we drive in the car quite a bit to geocache and go on hikes/bike rides

A scale model of the solar system that I can hang from the ceiling that isn't plastic

A pendant making kit (for the eldest, this is what she wants to make for Christmas gifts for her friends) like this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=15000148 or this http://www.makeandtakes.com/links/scrabble-tile-pendant-tutorial or this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14928442

I never thought I would be saying this (as our middle child was toilet trained at just over a year and our oldest came to us at 4) but cloth diapers to fit a two year old.  Our two year old just isn't interested in toilet training. 

And I know these are both huge but if anyone wants to make either of them, we wouldn't object  Wink A fabric dollhouse like this http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2008/08/fabric_dollhouse_tutorial.html?CMP=OTC-5JF307375954 or
a set like this http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=66029

Anything train related for the two year old. 

Supplies:

Diamond Glaze (my oldest is making magnets and likes the dimension it gives them)

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.)

This fabric for a quilt/pillowcase/and or wallhanging for my middle child http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14833775

Linen→Used or Thrifted pretty much any color (the middle child does A LOT of embroidery)

Anything from/inspired by my wist: http://www.wists.com/girlosun_9 that is for children

linen double fold bias tape at least a 1/2 inch (for skirts for the older two)

Little figurines so we can make this: http://www.parenting.com/article/Toddler/Activities/Ocean-in-a-Bottle

unpainted wooden nesting dolls

I am a SAHM to 4 kiddos.  We have 3 girls and 1 boy, 8yrs, 5 yrs, 3 yrs &  1 yr old.  We live in KY and have a small amount of living space for all 6 of us.  The sisters all love "the Bubs" very much.  He probably needs the most stuff since we have so many girly things.

I claim CJKJ for headbands.

3rd claim, 0 sent, 0 received

Here's my list. I'll add some wishes in other techniques now and then, so if you don't find something, please turn in again later. If you don't find something, but want to claim me, you could also PM me and suggest something you'd like to make. I haven't put heavy objects on my list like soap. or wooden things, but of course you can suggest these.

I am a mom of two great boys. I'm a she-nerd chaos machine, and I have passed this on to my lovely little nerdy chaos generators. Crafting is what keeps me going. And coffee Smiley
We live in Germany.

The Big M: 7 years old, loves computers, trains, maths, sports and reading, volcanoes, food charts (although I don't want any goodies of that), Star Wars toys and LEGO and Playmobil. Favourite TV shows are Lazy Town and Vicky the Viking, Pettersson & Findus, Shaun the Sheep, Kim Possible and Nils Holgersson. Favourite Films include Monster Inc., everything Winnie the Pooh, Shrek, and Ice Age.
Favourite bands are Queen, Gorillaz and Prodigy (no, he is not allowed to see their video clips Smiley and his English is not yet good enough to understand the lyrics Smiley ). Favourite color is blue.
Wears size 128.

The Middle M (there is no smaller one, but we are not allowed to call him small Smiley): 5 years old, loves trains, train schedules, Benjamin Bluemchen, cats, and music, music, music. Favourite toys are LEGO and Playmobil, blankets, pillows and stuffies, and everything related to transport. Favourite TV shows and movies are same as his brother's, plus Sandmaennchen. Likes all kinds of music. Slight preference for red, orange and green.
Wears size 104, moving up to 110 soon.

Their bedroom is jungle-themed, in primary colors, mostly green. There's a train's sub-theme (actually, we have that in every room Smiley )

A word about German clothing size system: It refers to the height of the kids in centimeters, increasing in steps of 6, like for example: 104, 110, 116, 122, 128 etc. Sometimes I get US clothes for the kids and my experience is that they can wear clothes that are their age +1, but better ask before deciding upon a size.

For most things, matching sets would be very nice, so if you want to pick the same item in two claims, or claim two, please do.
Please consider that anything my kids get to handle must be robust, that is everything must be sewn on tight and good, as we are all clumsy folk, and the little, eh, middle one is still not out of poking age.
No camouflage or war themed stuff please.

___________________ __

Hoodies

knitted hooded vest or sleeveless hooded jacket

papoose leather slippers (can give you patterns)

ADDED:

crayon roll

name signs, whichever technique, we could use them for adjusting to shelves, so they can be any material or technique

cool wristlets (but please in sets of two because of massive wristlet envies Smiley )


Anything themed to their favourite TV shows or movies

Stuffies from Gorillaz, esp one of Noodle when she wears her headphones (they'll never grow out of something that's so cool)

themed pillowcases for 45x45cm, for example a knitted or crocheted chessboard

From LazyTown:
A Pixel shirt
A knitted Sportacus hat (must be very soft) or scarf or anything Sportacus wears

or example stuffies or pillows like Mike and Sully


A wall hanging for putting mittens in (like a net), preferably Ice Age/prehistoric themed, but every design is okay

A volcano stuffie / pillow, or a volcano tote to keep our toy dinosaurs in it

I couldn't not include this: the R2D2 stuffie
I've been claimed! Yeah!

A crafting bag for a boy (yeah right!) with possibly a reference both to crochet and spiderman or batman or one of the abovementioned themes, so that he can keep his crochet stuff (first monster purse on the way) somewhere really cool

themed Pyjamas or T-Shirts

Viking garb (everything but the tunics, as we already have these)

They have a fireman suit and helmet, but accesories are welcome (crochet fire extinguisher or fire extinguisher stuffie?)

cotton blanket with windows in it (to hang up for making a house), windows should be able to be closed

a cover for small matresses (vocabulary problem, sorry, but I can describe it: It should cover the whole matress not just the top, and be closed with a zipper or velcro, and the size is about 70x70x15cm (please ask for exact size, and if you need the size in inches)

a monster bag
a Findus bag or purse
anything related to soccer
anything related to Astrid Lindgren novels
anything related to trains, esp. ICE (German high velocity train), TGV (French high velocity train) or steam engines
something with big numbers on for Middle M
something related to chess

and, as we can't buy glow-in-the-dark-colors in Germany, if you have any, maybe you can do anything cool with it (for example, we can buy small glowing items, like stars, but we don't have a glowing spaceship to match the stars in the kid's room, or an owl. or something like that)

and for my nephew and niece I am looking for Digimon amigurumi or stuffies, and tool belts.

I claim missgabbielynn for something from her wists for Noah and, if it doesn't work out, something Thomas the Train.

This is my second claim of three allowed, zero sent, zero received.

A little bit about us.  We are from Maine and spend A LOT of time outdoors; we hike, bike, walk, geocache, and explore.  Our newest activity is biking/riding in the royal carriage (read ride in the bike trailer behind mommy and give directions on how fast/slow mommy is going).  We are a fairly crafty family.  My ten year old loves bold colors and crafting unusual/different things out of craft materials.  My middle child likes pinks, purples, and browns as well as elephants; she also likes anything we call a craft project.  My youngests--who turned 2 several days ago) loves monkeys and soft fabrics. 


Crafted Items:
Some wrapples for our lunches--pears would be nice as well (pearples?) http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14455093

A cowl like this http://www.craftleftovers.com/blog/archives/433 to fit a 10, 4, and/or 2 year old.  ANy colors except pink for the the two year old.  It would also have to be non itchy yarn or it would never get worn.

 A felt pencil case like this http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.3a0656639de62ad593598e10d373a0a0/?vgnextoid=781f8b6244277110VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&vgnextchannel=66f3802fb632c110VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&lnc=66f3802fb632c110VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&rsc=organizing+tip+of+the+day_recipe_b  We strongly prefer wool felt but would be open to pretty much anything

Knitted Hats to fit my children.  The youngest is two, middle is four, oldest is ten--heads slightly bigger then average for the two year old and ten year old.

Colorful sock monkey

Felt Food (Sandwhich, Pizza, Breakfast Items, Produce)

Tote bag or bags with an outer pocket for bed time (a pocket for a book and a pocket for pjs).  The oldest likes bold colors and animal prints.  The middle child likes butterflies, purples, pinks, and browns.  The youngest likes monkeys and soft fabrics.  

Anything from/inspired by my wist: http://www.wists.com/girlosun_9 and there are a lot of ideas here, please feel free to craft something you would like to craft!

Gocco Cards with envelopes.   Deer, owls, trees, acorns, and/or pretty much anything nature inspired.  We are big on writing to friends/family and the children use these cards for that as well as for writing birthday letters.

Felted beads

Another I Spy Bag as we drive in the car quite a bit to geocache and go on hikes/bike rides

A scale model of the solar system that I can hang from the ceiling that isn't plastic

A pendant making kit (for the eldest, this is what she wants to make for Christmas gifts for her friends) like this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=15000148 or this http://www.makeandtakes.com/links/scrabble-tile-pendant-tutorial or this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14928442

I never thought I would be saying this (as our middle child was toilet trained at just over a year and our oldest came to us at 4) but cloth diapers to fit a two year old.  Our two year old just isn't interested in toilet training. 

And I know these are both huge but if anyone wants to make either of them, we wouldn't object   A fabric dollhouse like this http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2008/08/fabric_dollhouse_tutorial.html?CMP=OTC-5JF307375954 or
a set like this http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=66029

Anything train related for the two year old. 

Supplies:

Diamond Glaze (my oldest is making magnets and likes the dimension it gives them)

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.)

This fabric for a quilt/pillowcase/and or wallhanging for my middle child http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14833775

Linen→Used or Thrifted pretty much any color (the middle child does A LOT of embroidery)

Anything from/inspired by my wist: http://www.wists.com/girlosun_9 that is for children

linen double fold bias tape at least a 1/2 inch (for skirts for the older two)

Little figurines so we can make this: http://www.parenting.com/article/Toddler/Activities/Ocean-in-a-Bottle

unpainted wooden nesting dolls

I'd like to claim girlosun_9 for cowls for her kids!!  This is my second claim (of three), 0 sent, 0 recieved.

Hey guys!  Im Heather, and me and my family live in Michigan.  We are big into nature, living green, recycling and stuff like that.  We love to hike, and we love things inspired by nature.   Ive got a kiddo, Alexander, and hes 8.75.  He turns 9 on December 22nd.  He loves Star Wars, Naruto, Avatar, Pokemon, Harry Potter, Goosebumps books, pirates, monsters, magic, all kinds of stuff.  He LOVES to read, like crazy.  He is super athletic, and very tall.  (he is only a couple of inches shorter than me!  It is scary!)
We just re-did his room last month. The walls are green, and the rest of the scheme is black, white, and silver/grey.  We wanted to give him a really nice, grown up room.  He is definitely a grown up kid.  He really really loves anything handmade.  He is the kind of kid who totally loves something more if it was made by hand. (I really lucked out!)
So heres some stuff he would LOVE:

Crocheted star wars guys: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_1&listing_id=14517559

Roll up chalkboard:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=13706821

Sock animal

A yoda poppet

A cool stenciled/screen printed/or sewn hoodie (size 12)  anything star wars, naruto, skulls, rock and roll, anything like that would be awesome!  We are into recycling clothing, so used, but nice hoodies newly stencilled are good too!

A stuffed octopus with long tentacles (hed love something big enough to be huggable)

An R2D2 stuffie like the one from last round, here, and also in my profile:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=268959.msg3034477#msg3034477
Thanks brilor!!!

A case for his leapster L-max.  We need something to travel with.  It can be just a large padded cosmetic bag, but it would need to have a pocket to keep the little game cartridges in it.  Ill get dimensions if anyone is interested.

A lunch bag for school (cleanable would be awesome!) like this one, but not flowery:
http://tumblingblocks.net/blog/index.cfm/2007/7/31/oilcloth-lunch-bag

A hanging pocket organizer in black/white/silver/green, to hang in his room:
http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/1583

A birdcage like this, except in boy colors (no pink or flowers!):
http://pretty-ditty.blogspot.com/2008/03/fabric-bird-cage-tutorial.html

A boy monkey doll like the one from last round:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=268959.30  (all the way at the bottom)

A kitty like this: http://wists.com/superhooker/9025f158567d9ce549352d34e83c0c06?offset=0


Something cool and princessy for my neice, Emma.  She's 7, but she wears a size 12 in girls (she's a hefty princess!). 
-She'd dig cool stenciled or appliqued shirts. 
-A pretty princessy doll
-A stuffed fleece bunny or horse.
-A black apple doll, like this: http://www.marthastewart.com/article/black-apple-doll?rsc=fav_Homepage_Homepage

Anything made for her really needs to be pretty rough and tumble.  She lives in a house where things break easily.  Things that are washable are also a plus!

And my sister in law is having a baby this winter.  Its going to be a boy!  Her favorite color is baby blue.  Shes kinda into blingy stuff.  This will be her first baby, so she doesnt have any hand me downs sitting in boxes, and heres some stuff  Id love to giver her:

A diaper changing pad:
http://sewtakeahike.typepad.com/sewtakeahike/2008/07/diaper-changing.html

A cool diaper bag:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_12&listing_id=14154619

Baby booties

Any used but nice baby stuff would be great too!  Or any baby stuff that you love to make.


Thanks in advance!!!

I claim superhooker for stuff for her SIL's soon to be born baby boy (including a changing pad).
This is my 2nd claim, 0 sent (I will be sending my first claim this afternoon, I just need to get a shower first, haha), 0 received.

I am a SAHM (atm, however I am currently looking for a parttime job, bleh) of 1 darling little boy who is 3 years old.  We live in North Carolina, USA.

Quentin - 3 year old boy
Currently wears size 3T/4T in shirts and 2T in pants (he is tall and skinny/long torso, 38in.tall/30lbs), size 7.5 in toddler shoes.  If you need actual measurements let me know. 
Loves Thomas/trains, cars (ie-HotWheels), SuperWhy, Clifford, Lazytown, Dora/Diego, Blue's Clues, Mario Bros/MarioKart, RockBand, pirates, dinosaurs, space/rockets (and lots of other things, just ask, he probably likes it)  OMG, I can't believe I almost forgot Spiderman!
Also enjoys cheese (in many wonderous forms, from quesadilas to cubes), cookies, ice cream, chocolate milk and fruit snacks.  (I promise he doesn't just eat these things, they are just on the top of the list of things he wants when I ask him what he wants for whatever meal)
Also likes trying to ride his new tricycle, running in circles around the house, gymnastics class, and "playing" soccer.
Likes watching KC Chiefs football with his daddy and grandpa every Sunday (they all have matching jerseys, it's really quite adorable).  Also UNC Tarheel basketball is big in this house.  (He also has a KU-Jayhawks grandpa and an UGA-Bulldogs grandpa pulling him in their directions, haha).
He doesn't really have a favorite color (at least not one that he will tell me, he just starts naming all the colors he knows), sticking to boy appropriate colors would be best (so no pinks or purples).

---------------------------------------------------------

Play Food/Play Kitchen items - I (with the help of my woodworking older brother) am converting a set of old bedside tables into a play kitchen for Christmas... so I will be needing play kitchen and food items, I have a whole booklet that I printed out of crocheted foods but I haven't had a chance to get them started.  Crocheted/felt/etc... please no faces on the items, there's nothing weirder than pretending to eat foods that have cute/funny faces.

Awesome shirts (long sleeve and short sleeve) or hoodie - please no iron ons (they do not last in my wash and my kiddo picks at anything that he thinks is a sticker) - in any of his favorite things or check out the examples on his wist (link below, and yes I made my kid his own wist, haha)

Lounge pants/PJs in fabrics in his favorite things or some Christmas ones (I've even seen Thomas Christmas fabric!). 

Art for bedroom/bathroom (painting/embroidery/fabric/etc) - Bedroom is transportation themed, bathroom is monkeys/jungle.  (Here is a link to my flickr set with pictures of both rooms-the only thing that is different now other than furniture being moved around is the Thomas curtain on the window, it's posted on here- http://www.flickr.com/photos/amystagner/sets/72157603919027797/)

Transportation themed (or Thomas themed) Bedding... blanket/quilt/sheets/pillowcases (please no fleece blankets, he has like 5 of them now)... twin sized.

This is a biggie, but this thing is just too cool, so I thought why not, I can't seem to figure out how to make it... http://www.shopatron.com/product/product_id=BOO801/514.0

Knit socks!  I just love knit socks but I can't knit myself and crocheted socks aren't as nice looking.

I-Spy bag.  These things are so neat! --> Thanks, patty_o_furniture!

Sewing/crocheting patterns for infants/toddlers/boys/girls (we plan on having at least one more, it might be a little while, but I have been collecting patterns so I will be ready when we do)

Mario (as in the Nintendo Mario bros) amigurumi - snugglably sized.

A set of cute/fun magnets (he has one of those magnet/dryerase/chalkboard easels) to play with (puzzles, alphabets, cars/trains/planes, etc...)

Fabric in any of his favorite themes or other boyish prints (no baseball prints though please...) (cotton, fleece, flannel, any kind!)

------------------------------------------------------------

his wist - http://www.wists.com/Qstag  (there are examples of most of the things on the list on here)

his blog - http://amystagner.blogspot.com

A little bit about us.  We are from Maine and spend A LOT of time outdoors; we hike, bike, walk, geocache, and explore.  Our newest activity is biking/riding in the royal carriage (read ride in the bike trailer behind mommy and give directions on how fast/slow mommy is going).  We are a fairly crafty family.  My ten year old loves bold colors and crafting unusual/different things out of craft materials.  My middle child likes pinks, purples, and browns as well as elephants; she also likes anything we call a craft project.  My youngests--who turned 2 several days ago) loves monkeys and soft fabrics. 


Crafted Items:
Some wrapples for our lunches--pears would be nice as well (pearples?) http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14455093

A cowl like this http://www.craftleftovers.com/blog/archives/433 to fit a 10, 4, and/or 2 year old.  ANy colors except pink for the the two year old.  It would also ahve to be non itchy yarn or it would never get worn.

 A felt pencil case like this http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.3a0656639de62ad593598e10d373a0a0/?vgnextoid=781f8b6244277110VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&vgnextchannel=66f3802fb632c110VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&lnc=66f3802fb632c110VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&rsc=organizing+tip+of+the+day_recipe_b  We strongly prefer wool felt but would be open to pretty much anything

Knitted Hats to fit my children.  The youngest is two, middle is four, oldest is ten--heads slightly bigger then average for the two year old and ten year old.

Colorful sock monkey

Felt Food (Sandwhich, Pizza, Breakfast Items, Produce)

Tote bag or bags with an outer pocket for bed time (a pocket for a book and a pocket for pjs).  The oldest likes bold colors and animal prints.  The middle child likes butterflies, purples, pinks, and browns.  The youngest likes monkeys and soft fabrics. 

Anything from/inspired by my wist: http://www.wists.com/girlosun_9 and there are a lot of ideas here, please feel free to craft something you would like to craft!

Gocco Cards with envelopes.   Deer, owls, trees, acorns, and/or pretty much anything nature inspired.  We are big on writing to friends/family and the children use these cards for that as well as for writing birthday letters.

Felted beads

Another I Spy Bag as we drive in the car quite a bit to geocache and go on hikes/bike rides

A scale model of the solar system that I can hang from the ceiling that isn't plastic

A pendant making kit (for the eldest, this is what she wants to make for Christmas gifts for her friends) like this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=15000148 or this http://www.makeandtakes.com/links/scrabble-tile-pendant-tutorial or this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14928442
I never thought I would be saying this (as our middle child was toilet trained at just over a year and our oldest came to us at 4) but cloth diapers to fit a two year old.  Our two year old just isn't interested in toilet training. 

And I know these are both huge but if anyone wants to make either of them, we wouldn't object   A fabric dollhouse like this http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2008/08/fabric_dollhouse_tutorial.html?CMP=OTC-5JF307375954 or
a set like this http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=66029

Anything train related for the two year old. 

Supplies:

Diamond Glaze (my oldest is making magnets and likes the dimension it gives them)

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.)

This fabric for a quilt/pillowcase/and or wallhanging for my middle child http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14833775

Linen→Used or Thrifted pretty much any color (the middle child does A LOT of embroidery)

Anything from/inspired by my wist: http://www.wists.com/girlosun_9 that is for children

linen double fold bias tape at least a 1/2 inch (for skirts for the older two)

Little figurines so we can make this: http://www.parenting.com/article/Toddler/Activities/Ocean-in-a-Bottle
unpainted wooden nesting dolls

I claim patty_o_furniture for a crocheted baking set (yes, I am making another one of these, actually a 3rd one since I am working on one for my son as well, haha).
This is my 3rd claim, 1 sent, 0 received.

I am a SAHM (atm, however I am currently looking for a parttime job, bleh) of 1 darling little boy who is 3 years old.  We live in North Carolina, USA.

Quentin - 3 year old boy
Currently wears size 3T/4T in shirts and 2T in pants (he is tall and skinny/long torso, 38in.tall/30lbs), size 7.5 in toddler shoes.  If you need actual measurements let me know. 
Loves Thomas/trains, cars (ie-HotWheels), SuperWhy, Clifford, Lazytown, Dora/Diego, Blue's Clues, Mario Bros/MarioKart, RockBand, pirates, dinosaurs, space/rockets (and lots of other things, just ask, he probably likes it)  OMG, I can't believe I almost forgot Spiderman!
Also enjoys cheese (in many wonderous forms, from quesadilas to cubes), cookies, ice cream, chocolate milk and fruit snacks.  (I promise he doesn't just eat these things, they are just on the top of the list of things he wants when I ask him what he wants for whatever meal)
Also likes trying to ride his new tricycle, running in circles around the house, gymnastics class, and "playing" soccer.
Likes watching KC Chiefs football with his daddy and grandpa every Sunday (they all have matching jerseys, it's really quite adorable).  Also UNC Tarheel basketball is big in this house.  (He also has a KU-Jayhawks grandpa and an UGA-Bulldogs grandpa pulling him in their directions, haha).
He doesn't really have a favorite color (at least not one that he will tell me, he just starts naming all the colors he knows), sticking to boy appropriate colors would be best (so no pinks or purples).

---------------------------------------------------------

Play Food/Play Kitchen items - I (with the help of my woodworking older brother) am converting a set of old bedside tables into a play kitchen for Christmas... so I will be needing play kitchen and food items, I have a whole booklet that I printed out of crocheted foods but I haven't had a chance to get them started.  Crocheted/felt/etc... please no faces on the items, there's nothing weirder than pretending to eat foods that have cute/funny faces.

Awesome shirts (long sleeve and short sleeve) or hoodie - please no iron ons (they do not last in my wash and my kiddo picks at anything that he thinks is a sticker) - in any of his favorite things or check out the examples on his wist (link below, and yes I made my kid his own wist, haha)

Lounge pants/PJs in fabrics in his favorite things or some Christmas ones (I've even seen Thomas Christmas fabric!). 

Art for bedroom/bathroom (painting/embroidery/fabric/etc) - Bedroom is transportation themed, bathroom is monkeys/jungle.  (Here is a link to my flickr set with pictures of both rooms-the only thing that is different now other than furniture being moved around is the Thomas curtain on the window, it's posted on here- http://www.flickr.com/photos/amystagner/sets/72157603919027797/)

Transportation themed (or Thomas themed) Bedding... blanket/quilt/sheets/pillowcases (please no fleece blankets, he has like 5 of them now)... twin sized.

This is a biggie, but this thing is just too cool, so I thought why not, I can't seem to figure out how to make it... http://www.shopatron.com/product/product_id=BOO801/514.0

Knit socks!  I just love knit socks but I can't knit myself and crocheted socks aren't as nice looking.

I-Spy bag.  These things are so neat! --> Thanks, patty_o_furniture!

Sewing/crocheting patterns for infants/toddlers/boys/girls (we plan on having at least one more, it might be a little while, but I have been collecting patterns so I will be ready when we do)  --> Thanks superhooker!

Mario (as in the Nintendo Mario bros) amigurumi - snugglably sized.

A set of cute/fun magnets (he has one of those magnet/dryerase/chalkboard easels) to play with (puzzles, alphabets, cars/trains/planes, etc...)   --> Thanks superhooker!

Fabric in any of his favorite themes or other boyish prints (no baseball prints though please...) (cotton, fleece, flannel, any kind!)

------------------------------------------------------------

his wist - http://www.wists.com/Qstag  (there are examples of most of the things on the list on here)

his blog - http://amystagner.blogspot.com

I claim missgabbielynn for some barrettes (and possibly some hair scrunchies if I can work them out)

3rd claim, 1 sent, 1 received and one going out the door!


I am a SAHM to 4 kiddos.  We have 3 girls and 1 boy, 8yrs, 5 yrs, 3 yrs &  1 yr old.  We live in KY and have a small amount of living space for all 6 of us.  The sisters all love "the Bubs" very much.  He probably needs the most stuff since we have so many girly things. 

for Bubs:  (He has a surfer/skateboarder style with cool hair to match.)

Some cool surfer/skateboarder style stenciled/silkscreened/appliqued t-shirts - size 12 mo.

12 mo tees stenciled/silkscreened with sayings "Bread Lovers Unite!" or "Yeah, Toast"  (yes, he's a bread man)

Cadet style hat

pj pants or sets (styled like Old Navy/Gap pants)  he is cloth diapered so he needs some extra room in the pants.  I love stripes in boyish colors.

He is very good with his hands and likes to manipulate things so we need some toys that are good for him to manipulate.

Wooden lock box toy like this: http://www.peapods.com/browse.cfm/4,667.htm

wooden freeform blocks like this:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=cat3_gallery_16&listing_id=15031092

Nuts & Bolts board like this (bottom of pg 36):
http://www.michaelolaf.com/08JC13toys.pdf

Sew cloth diapers (I have the fabric & pattern - I need your serger & sewing skills with elastic)

Homemade magnet puzzles like this - I love the classic story pictures:
http://www.chicaschmica.com/2008/09/homemade-puzzle-magnets/

Soft magnet board or something baby friendly for him to stick magnets on


For the girls:

Artwork to put in a frame (can be scrapbooked/drawn/painted etc.) with their name, name meaning & scripture (ask me for the descriptions)

Wool Felt play food for their kitchen (I'm not looking for 100% wool felt, just a wool felt blend)

Hand puppets for 3 yr old.  Somethat look realistic like this:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=cat3_gallery_5&listing_id=9739568

or some puppets like this - you have to click the name under the drawing to see the real pictures:
http://www.magiccabin.com/magiccabin/product.do?section_id=0&sc=1004&bc=1004&pgc=613&cmvalue=MCD|CROSSSELL|PRODUCT|707

Doorway puppet theater (like in the link below) but with these modifications 42-48 wide, 36 from floor to window, and tabs at the top so I can use a tension rod to mount it.
http://www.magiccabin.com/magiccabin/product.do?section_id=0&bc=1004&pgc=707&cmvalue=MCD

Indoor Hopscotch Mat:
http://www.wists.com/cjkj/d3caf7c2bf09c56dad8f2fec02de622c?offset=0

Knit or Crocheted headbands that grip for 5 yr old.  Her hair is so thin it falls out of anything we use to put it up.  Like the large cream one in this post:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=232665.0

Poppet - one with brown and turquoise hair

Supplies:
wool felt & floss for 8 yr old to craft with

shrinky dink DIY kit for 8 yr old

His favorite color is green. He likes Legos, Spongebob, Chowder, Misadventures of Flapjack and Tiny Planets. He is really tall (almost 4') and wears a size 6/7 pants and shirt. It depends on their length. He plays basketball and takes gymnastics.

He would really like:
A shirt (long sleeve or short) with something on them
Pajama pants
A handmade scarf
A handmade hat
A monster (any medium)
A Puzzle
A stuffie - this is a cool one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=275577.0

Wall art with an outerspace something going on for his room

A little drawstring pouch for his school snack so I can stop cleaning crumbles out of the bottom of his backpack. I would need to be about 5"x5" something like this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_gallery_17&listing_id=15705611

Ok I think I killed it. I've added some stuff but if there's going to be another round I don't mind being the start of that one.

I claim Laural for a little drawstring pouch and a surprise.

This is my 4th claim, 3 sent, 3 received

I am a SAHM to 4 kiddos.  We have 3 girls and 1 boy, 8yrs, 5 yrs, 3 yrs &  1 yr old.  We live in KY and have a small amount of living space for all 6 of us.  The sisters all love "the Bubs" very much.  He probably needs the most stuff since we have so many girly things. 

for Bubs:  (He has a surfer/skateboarder style with cool hair to match.)

Some cool surfer/skateboarder style stenciled/silkscreened/appliqued t-shirts - size 12 mo.

12 mo tees stenciled/silkscreened with sayings "Bread Lovers Unite!" or "Yeah, Toast"  (yes, he's a bread man)

Cadet style hat

pj pants or sets (styled like Old Navy/Gap pants)  he is cloth diapered so he needs some extra room in the pants.  I love stripes in boyish colors.

He is very good with his hands and likes to manipulate things so we need some toys that are good for him to manipulate.

Wooden lock box toy like this: http://www.peapods.com/browse.cfm/4,667.htm

wooden freeform blocks like this:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=cat3_gallery_16&listing_id=15031092

Nuts & Bolts board like this (bottom of pg 36):
http://www.michaelolaf.com/08JC13toys.pdf

Sew cloth diapers (I have the fabric & pattern - I need your serger & sewing skills with elastic)

Homemade magnet puzzles like this - I love the classic story pictures:
http://www.chicaschmica.com/2008/09/homemade-puzzle-magnets/

Soft magnet board or something baby friendly for him to stick magnets on

gloves


For the girls:

Artwork to put in a frame (can be scrapbooked/drawn/painted etc.) with their name, name meaning & scripture (ask me for the descriptions)

Felt play food for their kitchen

Hand puppets for 3 yr old.  Somethat look realistic like this:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=cat3_gallery_5&listing_id=9739568

or some puppets like this - you have to click the name under the drawing to see the real pictures:
http://www.magiccabin.com/magiccabin/product.do?section_id=0&sc=1004&bc=1004&pgc=613&cmvalue=MCD|CROSSSELL|PRODUCT|707

knit slipper socks or booties for any or all of the girls

Knit or Crocheted headbands that grip for 5 yr old.  Her hair is so thin it falls out of anything we use to put it up.  Like the large cream one in this post:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=232665.0

Poppet - one with brown and turquoise hair

Carved stamps - they love Pomeranians, horses, baby elephants (the 3 yr old said), etc.

Supplies:
wool felt & floss for 8 yr old to craft with

shrinky dink DIY kit for 8 yr old

I claim CJKJ for some cool surfer/skateboarder style/bread related t-shirts (size 12 mo) for Bubs.
This is my 4th claim, 2 sent, 2 received (the 3rd is almost ready to be sent, promise).

I am a SAHM (atm, however I am currently looking for a parttime job, bleh) of 1 darling little boy who is 3 years old.  We live in North Carolina, USA.

Quentin - 3 year old boy
Currently wears size 3T/4T in shirts and 2T in pants (he is tall and skinny/long torso, 38in.tall/30lbs), size 7.5 in toddler shoes.  If you need actual measurements let me know. 
Loves Thomas/trains, cars (ie-HotWheels), SuperWhy, Clifford, Lazytown, Dora/Diego, Blue's Clues, Mario Bros/MarioKart, RockBand, pirates, dinosaurs, space/rockets (and lots of other things, just ask, he probably likes it)  OMG, I can't believe I almost forgot Spiderman!
Also enjoys cheese (in many wonderous forms, from quesadilas to cubes), cookies, ice cream, chocolate milk and fruit snacks.  (I promise he doesn't just eat these things, they are just on the top of the list of things he wants when I ask him what he wants for whatever meal)
Also likes trying to ride his new tricycle, running in circles around the house, gymnastics class, and "playing" soccer.
Likes watching KC Chiefs football with his daddy and grandpa every Sunday (they all have matching jerseys, it's really quite adorable).  Also UNC Tarheel basketball is big in this house.  (He also has a KU-Jayhawks grandpa and an UGA-Bulldogs grandpa pulling him in their directions, haha).
He doesn't really have a favorite color (at least not one that he will tell me, he just starts naming all the colors he knows), sticking to boy appropriate colors would be best (so no pinks or purples).

---------------------------------------------------------

Play Food/Play Kitchen items - I (with the help of my woodworking older brother) am converting a set of old bedside tables into a play kitchen for Christmas... so I will be needing play kitchen and food items, I have a whole booklet that I printed out of crocheted foods but I haven't had a chance to get them started.  Crocheted/felt/etc... please no faces on the items, there's nothing weirder than pretending to eat foods that have cute/funny faces.

Awesome shirts (long sleeve and short sleeve) or hoodie - please no iron ons (they do not last in my wash and my kiddo picks at anything that he thinks is a sticker) - in any of his favorite things or check out the examples on his wist (link below, and yes I made my kid his own wist, haha)

Lounge pants/PJs in fabrics in his favorite things or some Christmas ones (I've even seen Thomas Christmas fabric!). 

Art for bedroom/bathroom (painting/embroidery/fabric/etc) - Bedroom is transportation themed, bathroom is monkeys/jungle.  (Here is a link to my flickr set with pictures of both rooms-the only thing that is different now other than furniture being moved around is the Thomas curtain on the window, it's posted on here- http://www.flickr.com/photos/amystagner/sets/72157603919027797/)

Transportation themed (or Thomas themed) Bedding... blanket/quilt/sheets/pillowcases (please no fleece blankets, he has like 5 of them now)... twin sized.

This is a biggie, but this thing is just too cool, so I thought why not, I can't seem to figure out how to make it... http://www.shopatron.com/product/product_id=BOO801/514.0

Knit socks!  I just love knit socks but I can't knit myself and crocheted socks aren't as nice looking.

I-Spy bag.  These things are so neat! --> Thanks, patty_o_furniture!

Sewing/crocheting patterns for infants/toddlers/boys/girls (we plan on having at least one more, it might be a little while, but I have been collecting patterns so I will be ready when we do)  --> Thanks superhooker!

Mario (as in the Nintendo Mario bros) amigurumi - snugglably sized.

A set of cute/fun magnets (he has one of those magnet/dryerase/chalkboard easels) to play with (puzzles, alphabets, cars/trains/planes, etc...)   --> Thanks superhooker!

Fabric in any of his favorite themes or other boyish prints (no baseball prints though please...) (cotton, fleece, flannel, any kind!)

------------------------------------------------------------

his wist - http://www.wists.com/Qstag  (there are examples of most of the things on the list on here)

Ok pumpkins, I'm shutting down round 3.  Superhooker is taking over round 4, which she said she would get up and running by tomorrow evening (starting these can take some time and she's going to be doing a little traveling)  You can send her the same questionnaire that is at the beginning of this swap if you want to get a jump on things.  I'm doing feedback now, but if your packages haven't been received you will not receive feedback until all of yours have been received.

Thanks for such a great round...this went very smoothly!
