I claim padfoot for a stenciled Spike tee and some supplies

claim #5 for me (2, 1, 2)

Im Nicole, an at-home mom to my little munchkin, who just turned 2 in January.  I also work a few hours a week at a child care center.  Before I had my daughter, I was an elementary music teacher.  Education and crafting are my two passions other than my daughter, of course!  I knit and sew, mostly.  I used to scrapbook, but somehow I just dont find the time anymore.  I love practical items that are handmade and beautiful.  I would especially love anything from my wists.

Likes: Green, brown, blue and gray. Polka dots, stripes, and paisleys.  Birds of all kinds, especially penguins, owls, and cute fat yardbirds.  Anything musical!

Dislikes: Neons, skully type things, licensed cartoon characters like Dora or Disney princesses.

Crafts:
* Knit socks any color/yarn is great! (size womens 8 1/2 or toddler size 24 months/shoe size 5)
* Monster hat http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vl_other_1&listing_id=31389203 or newsboy hat for the munchkin
* Newsboy hat for me
* A basket (or 2 or 3) like these: http://www.wists.com/musicalmama/storage/a235900c0a6c5c88367a2e1ac2838877?offset=0  in natural colors, please.

* This knitting bucket organizer is just about the coolest thing ever http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=292678.0


* Handpainted wool yarn or handspun yarn - Any kind of colorway is good, but I especially like the rainbow ones.  Prefer worsted weight, but any is good, really.
* Dyed play silks like these: http://hyenacart.com/beneaththerowantree/index.php?c=0&p=54562
* Stenciled or screenprinted tshirts, size L (I like the longer styles of tshirts) Examples on my wists
* Stenciled, screenprinted, embroidered, appliqud, etc. tshirts  for the munchkin, size 24 months Thanks, Banga
* Embroidered, stencilled, or otherwise embellished pillowcases for the master bedroom, quilt colors are either dark green, burgundy and pink, or dark green, sage green, and a medium country blue depending on which quilt Im using.  Im so lucky I have two quilters in my family!  I can get you a photo of the quilts if you need it.
* Soap, sugar scrubs, lotions I like pretty much all scents, just nothing too strong.  I especially love these items that are made with all-natural ingredients! Thanks baa-me-chick
* Handthrown/handpainted pottery a tea pot or cup/saucer set would be really great!

Surprise Me:

Supplies:
* Yarn: handpainted, handspun, or natural fiber like wool, alpaca, cotton, bamboo, etc.

Ya wanna newboy hat???  I'll make ya a newsboy hat!!  I claim babalina58 for one  Grin

Hello there !!
Im Tammy.  Im 37 and im a stay at home mom to three boys in Northern California. I moved here from OH and love it!!  I like to sew, quilt.  I am starting to get into embroidery and can crochet a little bit.  Im very much into girly type stuff and love anything regency -titanic era. I also love 30s-40s things as well.  I am allergic to nickel.
 
Here are my wishes
Anything off my wist list is great!!

Crafted Items~~

KNITTED AND CROCHETED

I love this shawl and I am willing to wait longer if anyone will make it for me. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CivilWarShawlKAL/  Im not picky about color.  Would be just happy to even have one.

I would love some soft wool socks!!
Chocolate brown snood in a 40s style (prefer a crochet or knitted tie versus elastic (stays on better)
Knitted or crocheted beret hat in a dark color with a nice soft yarn
I have a weird obsession with knitted cuffs!! I love them!!  Chocolate brown, red, white, mustard yellow.


SEWN

**Civil War Era Cape called a Mathilde Mantilla (Think of a Civil War era Poncho.  This is basically what it is)  Here is a link to the pattern http://www.uvm.edu/%7Ehag/godey/images/s5902170.jpg  and here is an example of what it looks like http://www.thegracefullady.com/civilwargowns/ready-mades_silkmantle.htm Measurements will be provided.  Wool blend or Corduroy would be great. Hood is decorative and is not functional. It only uses around 3 yards.  I would also prefer it lined for warmth. It would be great if I could retain the pattern as well for future projects.  (I can sew I just cant figure out how to make it <frown>) without a pre-drafted pattern.  OR If someone with any drafting skills wouldnt mind drafting a pattern to my size I could play around with it and make my own (If I have a pattern to work with)

Aprons!!  Even though I sew them I would love to see what others come up with!!  I would also like two childrens apron (both are under 12yrs old)  transformers and spiderman a plus!! (one claim at a time is fine needless to say  Cheesy)

New purse (same reason as above!!!)  I also am in need of a large school bag/tote!!  The strap on mine is starting to come loose.

Primitive Rageddy Ann doll (An example is in my wists)

Handwarmers like the ones offered at Hot Topic. Victorian Goth ones would be perfect.

Crazy Quilted Purse.  Or any purse made by you!!  Im needing a new one!! (received a beautiful one from feast your eyes.  More are welcomed!!!

Victorian capelet.  At least waist length please email for length.

Regency or Victorian era Reticule

Petticoat either knee or ankle length !!  (Im 5'5 email for length) (recieved one from farmgirljane and would love more!!)

Slat bonnet or corded can provide links if needed.  Any pattern should do as they are all basically the same result.

Victorian slipper.  This pattern is from 1864
http://www.victoriana.com/VictorianShoes/victorianslipperpattern.html

Im looking for special kind of apron for my husband.  He cooks the eggs at breakfast time and is a ninjitsu martial artist.  I would love an embroidered apron that has a asian ninja/martial artist holding a spatula in each hand and says "Egg Master" underneath.  Fabric and colors are open as long as its durable and holds up.
 
Bars of handmade soap (the kind that is made from lye).  I have always wanted to try it!!  Lavender, oatmeal, goats milk, citrus are great however any scents are welcome!!  Or soap supplies/kit as I would love to learn how to make my own. Pre-made bars are appreciated as I have young children and am concerned with having lye in the house.

Bath bombs.  Also jars of bath salts would be fantastic as well. Im good for now!! Thanks!!

Hand crafted candles are great too. Prefer either fruit and or spice scented ones or lavender (only floral scented one I like).

Lavender sachets for my dresser drawers (ive received some but im addicted lol!!  I even hang them near open windows   Grin)

Whimsey jar are really fun!!

I would love a sign for my bathroom door that says "Powder Room" in a very girly style.

Im looking for a serving tray that I can bring snacks from the kitchen to the living room.  Asian or victorian influence a real plus.

Im also looking for a picture frame.  about 1.5 inches or more wide on the sides.  What I would like is a thin wooden back fitted to it. I dont need the glass for it.  An old vintage frame would be prefered for this.  Im going to use it as a center piece tray for candles (if you can visualize it will lay flat on the table) I can take a pic of the pic in my book if you would like to see my inspiration.

 
~~Supplies~~

Hobby Lobby and Michaels crafts have Victorian style sewing supplies!! Sadly I am no longer local to either (actually no Hobby Lobby in CA) I would love a chantilane.  However im also interested in any older sewing supplies as well from like antiques stores and such (I have a tracing wheel i bought for $4 so they can be affordable).

Patterns!!  I am 80 miles from a Joanns or Hancocks (sniff sniff).  I need envelopes with a size 14 & 16 included in the envelope for dresses and tops and a 16 for skirts.  Thanks!!
Vogue~~ .. .2884...2968...1239 ... 8352...8003
Simplicity~~
McCalls~~

Fabric Mystery Bundle from Fabricmart.com  http://www.fabricmartfabrics.com/xcart/804051-10-yard-Mystery-Fabric-Bundle-Assortment.html

Any (new or gently used) patterns by Truly Victorian, Laughing Moon, Folkwear and Sense and Sensibility (really wanting the Spencer pattern and Regency Dress).  Vintage Sewing Patterns!!       36 Bust is perfect for all patterns.

Needles (Regular or Ball Point Singer or Schmertz plz), Thread (Regular or Serger plz no Joanns brand serger thread), Trims, Bias Tape, Patterned Ribbons, Zippers ect.....

Magazines (new or used!!)  Gothic Lolita Bible Magazine, Beading and Jewelry making, Knitting and Crochet, Magazines from Somerset Studios.  Here is a link to their site and the magazines they offer http://www.stampington.com/html/main_magazines.html  Im especially looking for Haute Handbags!!!!   As well as cooking mags!!

Purse supplies of all sorts (handles, magnetic snaps, rings ect).  Silver Victorian clasps would be great too(can be found at Hancocks).

Scrapbooking items  (trims, paper, stickers anything!!).  Im also looking for some things like brads, ribbons, fancy paper, scissors.  Im also looking for corner punchers, rulers for making fancy torn edges and hole punchers (I have a heart one).  Also plain colored or white blank greeting type cards would be wonderful!! Gonna take a break and try and use up some of what I have  Grin

Handcrafted cards by you would be great!!

Im also looking for a decorated (painted/decoupaged/stained ect) box for my scrapbooking paper 12X12.  Would prefer an old vintage look.

He is a fan of Bruce Lee and any DVD (he has VHS) movies or any craft with him inspired would be wonderful!!  Or perhaps a stenciled t-shirt of Bruce Lee.  He would be thrilled to recieve something just for him (It also continues him to encourage me to swap.  Ya know totally his idea)

I'm going to claim frosty772 for a wisty surprise. I need to do some crafting after the horrible month I've had.

Claim #2 this month, 1 in transit.

About Me

Greetings everyone! 32 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats. My favorite colors are jewel tones (like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber) or earth tones (like greens/browns together). I like silver but not really gold. (Copper''s ok too.) My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy. I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together. My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes. I love to read, I enjoy photography and I love all things Disney! Daffodils are my favorite flower.

ALLERGIES
I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.

Crafts

Sewing

*new* And a VERY BIG WISH! -- A Cozy Winter Wrap like this thread. (She also has a tutorial here.) The embroidery shown on it is totally optional and totally not required. Most any color would be ok (just no red/orange/yellow/pinks please.) I am ALWAYS cold and would LOVE one of these!!

 -- A simple robe. I really like this style. Doesn't have to be exactly like that but I like the Japanese/Asian/Cherry Blossom influence, but it could be other colors/patterns that I like as well. Doesn't need to be form-fitting, can be a little roomy just not too oversized. (A little roomy is fine.) I''m generally a US size 4.

 -- A day tote. There''s not a thing I don't love about this one for example, but it could be in different fabrics of similar colors for example. It looks sturdy and says it has pockets and the shape is really lovely.

 -- A Weekender Type Bag. I really like this one which would be a lovely weekender bag since I don't own any luggage. (It has an almost Steampunk feel to me with the leather - which could totally be faux!) And of course, Amy Butler's pattern is neat but it wouldn't have to be in her fabric.

*new* -- Table Top Ironing Mat like THIS. I don't always have room to pull my full ironing board out but I usually have space on my counter or table. So this is brilliant!

*new* -- Ironing Board Cover (with padding) The covers cost as much as a new iron but mine is nasty, discolored and so flat that you iron the iron weave of the board's frame into your clothes. It''s a standard ironing board of normal length and size. Can be plain or simple fabric but must of course be durable and heat tolerant.

-- Something made from the JOEL DEWBERRY'S AVIARY ALMOND FABRIC. (Stuff like this wristlet or these potholders or this craft apron or this card holder etc. Pillows, aprons, anything! I am just in love with this fabric!

 -- Some throw pillow slip covers. I'd love to change up my throw pillows more often. What might be fun is to have some slip covers I could put over the existing pillows to mix things up now and then. I have two standard size, square pillows (16") on my couch. My living room features a "sand" colored couch and dark "espresso" brown entertainment center with chrome accents. So browns and blues would be cool, but also like autumny colors, or earth tones or maybe even some seasonal ones. I don''t know. It just seems like it'd be fun to have an assortment to change it out now and then! Examples of colors and prints I like HERE.

 *new* -- A sewing machine cover. I do own one - this one specifically - but I'm still pretty terrible. I also don't use it a lot so a nice, pretty cover would be good to keep the cat hair and dust off it.

Knitting

*HUGE wish* -- This "entrelac" style scarf in these type of earthy, natural colors. (If it were in a mix of teal blue and chocolate brown that would work too.) I think this is one of the most perfect things ever. I don't really need scarves as a rule because I live in Florida, but I''d find reasons to wear one like this!

*big wish* -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. There are some wisted here for inspiration. (And yes, thick ones for around the house are perfect too!) thanks ifallthraindrops! I''d love many, many pairs though!:D

 *new* -- A shrug like this style (Or another example.) Could be in a self-striping colorway in any color I like (blues, purples, greens, greys, browns, etc.) or solid. It's the style and idea I really like.

 -- A cable knit bag. I really like cable knit and I think this bag is really cool.

 -- A lightweight/lacy shawl. (Like this example. I love the delicate lace of this. I'm always cold so something to cover my arts at dinner or in the movies would be great. Could be this or other colors. Something neutral probably best. Doesn't have to be this identical pattern, just this basic concept.


Other

 -- Fitted Style Tee Shirts. Short sleeve, 3/4 length or long sleeve. (Since this time of year I might get to actually wear a longer sleeve!) Fitted, size small or US 4 equivalent. I have received a ton and I love them but I also live in fitted tees and more are always welcome. I have a bunch of styles I love wisted for inspiration. thank you to everyone who''s made one - I can''t get enough!

*new**big wish*  -- Hand-Dyed / "Shibori-Dyed" Fitted Tee Shirts Like above, short sleeve, 3/4 or long sleeve is fine so long as it''s fitted. I like styles like THESE in my wists. I especially love the flame style one but really like this type of look a lot. It''s different from the shirts I typically wear and I like that. (Please just no hippie/Grateful Dead rainbow style tie dye. Nothing against hippies but it's just not my personal preference.)

*new*  -- Hand carved stamps. Neat things I can decorate packages or letters with. Trees are great, vines, penguins, owls, etc. I would also love phoenix ones that are NOT my logo. (I have logo ones already.) There's so many phoenix tattoo images out there which would make GREAT stamps. Or, anything based on the stuff I like would be great!

*big wish*  -- Something stained glass - sun catcher, nightlight, glass mosaic item, etc. I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself. I have a wall of sliding glass doors and would love to put up something pretty there!

 -- Something glass work like a vase or something. Blown or torch or whatever. A cool medium I don''t know how to work with at all. This is really pretty for example.

 -- Something ceramic/pottery or vase or a bowl or a tea mug or cereal bowl (I eat cereal every day!) or anything like that. Decorative or useful! Again, a skill I don't have but really love. (A couple things I've wisted for inspiration.)

*big wish* -- Anything with a phoenix on it. I LOVE the phoenix and there''s not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items here as inspiration.

 -- Fused glass or glass (microscope) slide pendants you think I'd like. (Here are some wisted inspiration items as examples.)

 -- Home decor items that you think I'd like based on my wists, likes, etc. I love the chocolate brown/blue combo, my living room is browns, creams and touches of blue. I also have two kitties who would love things to play with/scratch/climb on, etc.

*new*  --Organizational items I have way too many dvd's and not enough storage for them, I could use decorative storage in general, I have a ton of fabric that just sits in piles that need organizing, I have a lot of miscellaneous craft supplies with no place to put away (hole punches, scissors, sewing tools, pens, markers, paper, beads, wire, beading tools etc. etc. etc.) Help me wrangle my crafting mess!!

 -- Something with owls. I love owls, especially snowy and great horned owls.

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists or my amazon wishlist, or the colors I like and see what you can make that you think I''d like.



Craft Supplies
 
*new* *HUGE wish* -- Jewelry Presentation Displays I have one in black but I need a necklace one in WHITE for photographing my work. I could also use a necklace/earring combo and a bracelet hand. These are styles I like and could REALLY use:
 - Simple Necklace: Display, necklace, leatherette, white, 10x8 inches
 - Fancier Necklace/Earrings: Display, necklace/earring, frosted acrylic
 - Another Fancier Necklace/Earrings: Display, Venus figure, opaque white, 12 x 8-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches
 - Ring/Bracelet Display, acrylic, clear frosted, 7-1/4 x 4-1/2 x 3 inch hand

 *new* -- Watch Gears/Parts - cogs, gears, faces, etc. Any parts I can use in Steampunk jewelry.

 *new* -- Porcelaine Markers - the ones you can use to permanently write on ceramics? Like these? Black definitely and any other color welcome. It would be fun to decorate mugs and such!

 *new* -- 1:12 scale dollhouse miniatures - any kind of objects, knickknacks, plates, bowls, candles, books - things I can use in my Faerie Hutches. It's hard to find dollhouse items locally; the only place I used to get them closed. Undecided

*new* -- A sewing basket. You know, classic little box with a handle to store my growing collection of threads, notions, scissors, etc. Like this idea/ or this one. Doesn''t have to be that fabric or anything but that idea. Right now, all my stuff is just piled up in a mess on my desk.


  -- Mini Cake Pans. How cute are these? I do''t know that I *need* them per se, but they''re just so darn fun.

 -- Lampwork beads. Love. Wish I could make but I''m too scared of open flame. Cheesy

 -- Beading supplies. I create jewelry so I'm always looking for unique and interesting pendants, charms, gemstone beads, large focal beads and such. Also, I love Swarovski crystal, unique clasps or toggles. Also any 16 or 24 gauge wire is in any color is always useful.


Extras
-- Tea! Especially fruity ones.

 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.

 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)

 -- Sewing magazines. (especially things geared towards newbies)

 -- Beading magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin

I am claiming phoenixfiredesigns for something phoenix.

First claim! 0 sent 0 rec'd

Hullo! I am a 22 year old woman who lives in California (USA). I love deep natural colors such as dark greens, browns, and deep umber oranges. Other colors I am also fond of: deep blues, very delicate light blues, deep purple, deep red. I do not like busy fabrics or patterns, I do love stripes. I also particularly love the color combination of grey/green. I love cats, otters, wrens, swallows, and most animals. I dabble in many different types of craftiness, I paint, and I love to sing

I would love anything from my wist along with anything below obviously haha. (which I have been blatantly stealing from other people's wists for the last little bit >.> ) Wist link

I am allergic to wool, so no wear-ables with wool, felted lil stuffed animals are fine. I am also allergic to nickel earrings

Sizes: I like my shirts a bit longer as I have a big chest and it makes them ride up, I wear a size medium-large top depending on it it runs a bit small or not. My hips are wide, if you need me to measure exactly send me a pm haha.

big wishes in bold.

Crochet/Knit

-I have been lusting after some cute crochet/knit slipper flats. I'm working on a pair for myself, but I want many, and maybe some very cute ones.

Sewing
-A purse/bag: I have recently decided to not only use my dickies zipper small purse anymore (I had it since I was 13 or so haha) so I need new cute purses! I have a really cute dark brown purse, and would love a dark green, a black, or any other really nice earth tones. There are a few styles in my wist that I would love, but really anything goes here.
 
-Weekender bags/messenger bags: I would adore one like this marauder's map one *_* <3- and this one is gorgeous <3

-I rather need a crochet/knitting craft bag, right now I use an old canvas bag haha: I love this one <3

-A case for my DS lite!: I love these <3 - (this one doesn't have to be the nintendo controller, I would even like it with just some stripes, but the controller is awesome too, so pick whatever) <3

-Stuffies: maybe an otter one? or a narwhal, elephant, or whatevs

-Slippers like these: <3

-A head wrap: <3

Misc Crafts
-A secret compartment book. <3 Something with a fun title would be so fun, maybe try thrift store hunting for big thick beat up books?
-Pretty embroidery bits, maybe a bookmark?
-A Terrarium starting kit!
-A needle felting kit
-Any handthrown/handmade pottery
-Anything blown glass
-Pretty wooden boxes, painted/etched/decorated
-Tank top with stenciled otters playing along the bottom.
-Tank top with stenciled swallows (preferably not along the chest, I have an abundant one haha)
