Welcome to the Ongoing Offer What You Have Swap!  Don't have time to participate in other swaps?  Here's your answer!  This swap is for swapping supplies or crafts you've already made. Smiley

- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES

Details of swap:
If you a) have crafts lying around that you've made
    or  b) want to de-stash supplies or
    or  c) enjoy making things for other people
...then this swap is for you! It's a lot like the Ongoing Wish Swap, except instead of posting what you want to receive, you'll post what you want to give.  To join you must have at least five things that you have made/would like to make/want to trade.

This is an ongoing swap, feel free to join up at any time this month! To join, first send a Personal Message to organizers lapoli AND oneredboot with the following questionnaire info. Once you are approved, you are free to claim something(ie one item) from the most recent list posted, and then post your own list.

...and that's it, basically

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you want to participate, information to send to organizers

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap:Ongoing Offer What You Have Swap - September 09
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? (you must be to join):  (*Please note that this means you have to be willing to send ANY item from your shop out of the country*)
Confirm that are at least 13 years old (and please mention how old you are if under 18) (yes/no):
Your list of at least five items (crafts you can make/have ready-made or details of supplies you wish to offer), detailed description not necessary:
Have you read the swap info (in this post) carefully and commit to follow the rules of the swap?:


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

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

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

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

Remember your outstanding claim limit for this round:
Friend of Craftster: Three (become a Friend of Craftster!)
First-Time Swapper: One
Everyone Else: Two

This is how many pending at a time you may have. As soon as one of your packages is received then you may claim again.

Your list of offerings: if your list stays up for more than 48 hours before someone claims from it, you must add something to it. You can also allow claimers to add more items together to make a claim (i.e. they don't seem to be biting on your earrings, so now they can take two pairs for a single claim instead of just one.) If you are having trouble coming up with stuff to add, consider offering a small item to be custom made for the person who claims from you. This can be conditioned on using stash items if you wish. Remember that it must be something that you can complete in two weeks, unless your partner agrees otherwise.

Once someone claims from you, you have two weeks to get the package in the mail.  Please contact the organizer by personal message when you send the package and when you receive a package so everyone gets credit.

ALSO: Please make sure to post to the discussion thread so you stay up on any updates!

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

Do not sign up unless you are willing to send outside of your country.  This means that you will be willing to send ANYTHING in your list out of the country, if claimed.  Please do not list items as "US only."  If you feel that an item is too heavy to send internationally, please do not list it in your shop.  

Check out the previous rounds if you need help figuring out the scope of what to put on your list. It is typically in the $5-$15 range, from a half a yard to a couple yards of fabric depending on weight and fanciness, crafted accessories, grab bags of yarn, beads, buttons and notions, things of that nature.

Photos and the Gallery: Whenever possible, include pictures of the items you're offering in your posts. When you receive, it is important for you to thank your partner, be courteous and communicative, but a lot of the items are premade or stash, so posting pictures in the Gallery isn't crucial. The exception to this is when something is custom-made for you in this swap. And if you make something with supplies you receive in this swap, we want to see it!

Delivery Confirmation numbers are mandatory for people in the U.S. sending to other people in the U.S., and everyone else must keep their receipts.

This round of the swap will close around midnight, on the official Craftster clock, September 30th. Feedback will be given on October 1st for all participants who have no pending claims. Everyone whose packages haven't been received will get feedback once the package reaches its destination.

Reminders/Summary:
1. Make sure to PM the organizers and who you sent to when you send out, with DC number if you are both in US.
2. Make sure to PM the organizers and who you receive from when you receive.
3. As soon as you claim something from someone, shoot them a PM with your address so that they have it and don't have to chase you down later.
4. Lets keep this swap moving, Please try to stay on top of adding new things/combining items into one claim if your list stays up more than a couple days, or the organizer will hunt you down and remind you.
5. Post pics in the gallery if someone makes you something custom or you make something from supplies you receive.
6. Lets try to keep this thread for lists as much as possible to save on confusion. If your list is up, you may post a "bump" after you have added something new/combined your items, but otherwise please try to post all questions/comments/requests/whatever into our discussion thread.

I'll claim the yarn from Zelda.Suicide please.


Claims Allowed: 3
Claims made so far: 1
Sendouts Not Sent:0
Sendouts Sent:0
Sendouts in Transit:0
Sendouts Received:0


MY LIST

Pick 1


The bags I make are of different sizes. I always write approximate size next to the descriptions (measured laying flat). Make sure to read!




The lacybag. Shoulderbag. Tote bag like. I like how this one turned out. It's patchwork and vintage lace. The lining has a subtle flower pattern. Measures about 15"x13".


NEW Extraordinary taggies, pick one for a claim! NEW

These are so much fun for babies to fiddle with. I have tried to mix lots of different materials and features in every taggie. They are all around 10" x 10", but size varies a bit.




Four seasons taggie! All four seasons are represented by its own cotton fabric piece in this patchwork taggie. Back side is a dark green courderoy fabric, fun to play with.




Denim frogs! This taggie is made from the leg of a pair of jeans. If you lift the flap there are soft flannel frogs hiding! Backside is made of soft dark green velour (is there a better word in English?)




Rainbow taggie! (dust will be removed.) Patchwork rainbow with a piece of extremely soft light blue fabric in the middle. So soft and nice to feel. Back of taggie is made all in the soft blue fabric.


IKEA FABRIC! one piece (of a yard or more) per claim.




Gunvor. (whole piece showing, sorry about the folded corners in the picture) 59"x47". 1 point




Unknown name. Out of production. (whole piece showing) 59"x36". 1 point


 

Elsa. 59"x40". 1 point. Sorry about it being all wrinkly, but I can't iron it right now. If you want to I'll iron it before sending.


The below are my own improvised designs based on the ancient Japanese art of temari, which translated into English means "hand ball". The ball itself in these cases has a base consisting of a plastic bag (since temari is all about recycling) and round it is layers of hand wound yarn and thread to shape the ball and make the decorative surface. The embroidery is made with cotton perle. All handmade by me. Choice of blue ball (very dark blue IRL) or green. Egg cup/temari stand and image editor frames not included.  Cheesy






...or pick 2!




10 big cats on big stamps. From all over the world! 10 big stamps is 1/2 claim.






Cross stitch kits to make angels with ribbons and all sort of stuff. 1/2 claim per kit!




Traditional Swedish glass troll, about 2" tall, heavy and could be used as a paper weight. It has an inscription on the back, apparently some kind of SAAB commercial message, but that is only visible from the back (image 3). Really difficult to get a good picture of this one.




Retro looking cotton fabric with big flowers, bursting with colour. You get about 60" x 18" for half a claim.




A mouse pad!  Cheesy Just a plain simple red mouse pad. I bought these some time ago and meant to do something crafty with them (some kind of frames or something), but never really got around to it. A few of them available if you want to claim two.


 

Stretchable book covers! Claimed these in some swap, but haven't used since, so they will have to go (have to get rid of stuff!). Never opened. 1/2 claim each.


Pick 4 of these
or 2 plus one of the "pick 2" items above!




These are bookmarks I guess, made of thick paper (cardboard?). They are made up of two eggs that can be taken out (perforated edges) and used for decoration or crafting. The text on the back says "Have a hard boiled easter!" in Swedish. You can see both sides of the bookmark above. Make sure to look closely at the eggs! (Sorry about the poor picture quality, especially on the egg on the right, looks much smoother in reality.) 1 bookmark is 1/4 claim.




Set of four big American Disney stamps (used). Great condition! 4 big stamps is 1/4 claim.


Below are Swedish stamp booklet covers, i.e. the stamps are taken out, but some of the covers are really nice, I think. Maybe someone could use them for some kind of paper art. Size approximately 2 1/2" x 6" (when unfolded like below). Pick 8 for 1/2 claim (or 4 for 1/4 claim) or all of them for 1 claim.

I claim the bag o grey yarn from oneredboot.


Claims Allowed (Outstanding):3
Claims made so far: 1
Sendouts Not Sent: 1
Sendouts Sent: 0
Sendouts in Transit: 0
Sendouts Received: 0


Claim 1

HANDMADE CLOTHING
Built By Wendy #3835 shirt
I would say it's a size Small (possibly a Medium for smaller busts) (it was a little snug for my post breastfeeding bust, size 12 from the pattern), made from a quilter's cotton and worn maybe once or twice

Bird Skirt
I did not make this, it is handmade though. Has a cute little bird applique on it. I don't know what size it would be, but it measures flat 15inches across the waistband and almost 17inches long. It was taken in on the side opposite of the zipper because it was slanted on the zipper side but not the other so it fit rather awkwardly (it could easily be taken out to make it a little bigger).

Pink Polkadotty Dress
Made from quilter's cotton, using Simplicity pattern #4119 in size 14. This is a cute pattern, it just does not suite my body well, it was worn once to my younger brotherinlaw's highschool graduation (he just started his senior year in college). It zips up the back and the top/bodice is lined.

(There are more pictures/information about these items here, http://swaphappyamy.blogspot.com/2009/05/shop-swap-handmade-clothing.html)

Onesie & Skirt/Short Sets
Choose Blue/Green Snails (skirt/0-3 mos),  Blue/Green Apples (shorts/6-9 mos)


Padded Laptop Sleeve
Laptop sleeve (made for my old laptop, hardly used since that thing was too heavy to really be portable, I washed before taking pics and the flannel pilled in the wash), padded with several layers of fleece, and closes with velcro.  (The measurements of my old laptop as provided by the Gateway website are= 1.31 to 1.40-inches (H) 14.09-inches (W) 10.39-inches (D)... it fit quite snug into this sleeve)


Fabric Button Magnets  (set of 6 magnets)
Fabric button/badge magnets.  The little ones are 1.25in and the big ones are 1.5in.  Use the numbers on the 2nd picture for claiming.

Crocheted Scarves

Claim as pink (6in wide x 63in long) or purple (5in wide x 60in long)


Sheer Star Fabric
Over 6.5 yds of (58in wide) sheer fabric with cute green and yellow stars on it (has a few stain spots, pictured below... one looks like it might be rust and the other looks like ink but it's right above the selvage).  (pictures- 1. fabric, 2. close up of star, 3. rust-looking stains, 4. ink-looking stain)



Claim 2

Appliqued Onesies 
Choose white Eagles (6-9 mos) or white Redskins (6-9 mos)


Tiny Bows!
Bag of 30+ tiny ribbon bows, perfect for embellishing little girls clothing items.  There are baby pink, blue, white and red ones, in 3 different styles.  Very cute!


Random Books/Etc... (1/2 claim per book or all 3 for 1 claim)
Found these in my stash, would be great for papercrafting/decoupaging/etc projects.  The first is a book of Mom quotes (great for Mother's Day projects), the second is a Love Hina manga/graphic novel, and the last is actually not a book, but a copy of FinalFantasy8 for the PC (the packaging is pretty neat and the manual has usable pictures in it, I don't know if the game actually works anymore).

I want to claim drgdlg for yarn remnants.

Claims Allowed (Outstanding): 3
Claims made so far: 0
Sendouts Not Sent 0
Sendouts Sent 0
Sendouts Received 0

I am in California, with a fuzzy dog, and neither of us smoke!

My offerings:

Take 1 of these:

Flat-Rate envelope stuffed with paper/ephemera - vintage goodies, book pages, weird randomness, most images too big for ATCs. there will be embellishments, too, maybe some handspun yarn as well. Let me know your preferences and interests when claiming.

bright book with postcard pocket: This was an experiment; hence the bright wonky colors (wonky to me, maybe not wonky to you). Elastic loop on the inside for holding pens, and flip-up pocket for storing postcards or whatnot. Pages are a basic glue binding, with mixed paper and some random retro clipart.

Quilt top - vintage, hence not made by me. Twin-sized, would be perfect for a bunch of iron-on images, appliques, stenciling, writing with fabric markers, or embroidering in the solid-color blocks, eh?

double sized half-apron - vintage, hence not made by me. Pockets on both sides.

crocheted kerchief beautifully made by farmgirljane. I absolutely love it but somehow the shape of my head and my copious large hair don't allow it to sit right when I'm wearing it.


Take 2 of these:

barnacle bookmark - made by me.  Grin Vintage text, scrapbook paper, packaging ribbon from Thailand, handspun yarn scraps. And the beads on the end are actually repurposed handmade earrings. The back is all the circle design.

baggie of dried lavender - US only due to international shipping regulations.

vintage cake toppers - warning, includes 2 scary clowns! All the strange plastic goodies in the picture except the ruler.

Barbie pasties! Not pasties for Barbie, pasties for you (or other recipient) with Barbie on them. Technicolor images of vintage Barbies from a 1960s craft magazine, decoupaged on cardstock base, backed with vinyl and sealed to discourage deterioration. Off-white and yellow lace trim on the outer edge, with a bow made from the lace on the bottom of each. Clear iridescent sequins dotted around the outer surface. No tassels on the end and no special emphasis on the nipples...Though, if you have some Barbie shoes, it would be awesome if you made tassels with those! I can't find any, myself.

set of 5 molded crayons from scrap-crayons - choose these mixed color ones, or I'll make you another set with the colors/variety of your choosing (craftydeb sent me pounds of crayons!)

Take 3 of these:
approx 1 yd of Wonder Under with instructions. Several available.

glossy blank punched cards - 16 sheets, heavy cardstock, about the size of a recipe card or large index card, bright white with a somewhat slick surface--not as glossy as a photo but has a sheen to it that makes it a perfect surface for rubber stamping and maybe alcohol inks. I got these second-hand but I'm pretty confident they were made to be altered. Large hole in the corner for binding them all with a bunch of chunky yarns!

old wooden spools of thread - I also have MANY wooden spools with no thread; if you would rather have some of those, please let me know.

Choose 1.

Handmade-
Party banner
110" long, each flag 6.5" wide and 8.5" long

Recycled Chicago T-shirt
Size says medium, and I assume this is women's because it fits small.

Reconstructed pink blazer.

Length- 21"
Sleeves- 25"

Recycled cowgirl yoke shirt
It measures 22" from pit to pit and 25" from shoulder to hem.

Choose 3

White and cream thread. This looks like what you yarn folks call crochet thread. I personally have no idea. One is cotton feeling (white) and the other feels satiny (cream). They bot seem to have a lot left on them, but they both have small rust stains (shown in the photo, the cream more so than the white).


Gallon sized ziplock full of dark green tulle. Bought for a tutu but I lost interest. Would be neat to crochet into dish scrubbies. Its one continuous piece a couple of yards or more.


White ribbon trim. About 7/8" wide and 73" long. Its a bit shinier in person.

These have some neat info and are bound in various 70's fabrics.
