I claim Dawl for fabric.

I'm 21, and have a career in Early Childhood Education at a downtown daycare with a high ratio of special needs children. I love to read and write. I like all colours and any combination of colours, except white.

things for me:

-Artwork related to Clockwork Orange. I've already got this poster, but anything else would be great. http://www.behindthehype.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/a_clockwork_orange.jpg

-Altered versions of this image:http://rjdent.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/a-clockwork-orange.jpg  Right now I've got a pencil illustration on white paper from a high school friend, and this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=340896.msg3953355#msg3953355 so anything else (an applique with different colours, something felted, woodburnt) would be great.

-Inchies based on Clockwork vocabulary: http://soomka.com/nadsat.html Please put the nadsat word on the inchie! (a picture of a hand with 'rooker' or whatever have you)

-I really want this http://www.etsy.com/listing/44201926/maroon-yarn-doll-art-doll?ref=cat3_gallery_22 I would have already bought it, but they refuse to ship to Canada.

-Four houses- a Minipax, Minitrue, Miniluv, Miniplenty from the book 1984. minitrue and miniluv are described a bit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ministry_of_Peace I'm guessing this is a task for papercrafters or polymer clay users.

-"standard" sized (20x26") pillow cases in food fabric (to match my ants duvet cover, lol)

- standard sized pillow cases in clouds fabric

- decopouged letters. I'm pretty sure you can get these at dollar stores or Michaels. http://www.etsy.com/listing/51772611/6-western-wood-letter-or-number?ref=sr_gallery_17&ga_search_query=wood+letters&ga_search_type=&ga_page=&order=&includes
  • =tags&includes[1]=title I need the letters d y s t o p i a, in greys with purple and blue and burgendy accents. I'm not sure what a medium of this would be, but do any many letters as you feel is fair.

-metal necklaces:
chainmaile- http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=34884367
chainmaile- http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=37910401
zipper- http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=37436755&ref=sr_gallery_33&&ga_search_query=zipper+flower+necklace&ga_search_type=category&category=jewelry&ga_page=&order=&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title

-big pendants. like 2"x2".

-wand for HP cosplay (going to a con this summer)

things for daycare:

-dinosaur puppets

-bunny hats looking like this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=40770870&ref=sr_gallery_14&&ga_search_query=bunny+hat&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=11&order=&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title I need two adult sized ones (one for me, one for my special needs worker) and eight for 3/4 year old heads. I know that one cap would be a medium claim, so I basically need to be claimed 10 times. So obviously this wish will be up a while. Also, feel free to make fleece ones, they don't have to be crocheted, it was just the first nice bunny hat I saw.

-any children's book with felt peices to match the story. i've done It Looked Like Spilt Milk http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=285970.0 and gamemom42 made me a The Piggy In The Puddle one, but i can always use more.

-eye spy bags. i think these could go over really well with my kids.

supplies:

-ball chain
-fabric with apples on it

I'm going to claim mxer145 for Christmas cards or tags. Need to make some anyway so it'll fit right in with my plans. Grin

First claim this round! Grin
Claims: 1 of 3 current / 1 overall / 0 in transit / 0 received

About Me
33 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).
  • My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy.
  • My favorite colors for shirts/clothes are browns, greens, purples, and both heather and charcoal greys.
  • I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together
  • I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.)
  • My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes.
  • My favorite flower is the Daffodil.
  • My favorite hobbies include: reading, photography and I love all things Disney!

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.

Crafty Wishes

 Grin = BIG WISH!

Sewing
NEW -- Coupon Organizer. I always have coupons but they get lost in my purse. I LOVE this style. Small enough to fit in my purse but with sections would be great.
NEW -- Grin  A Lapboard I really need a new one. Something comfy so I can use my heavy laptop on the couch more comfortably. I like this one a lot but it wouldn't have to be that exact color/fabric. Just the style is really useful.

 -- Wrap-style pants for my guy! Same concept as these but maybe a little more manly/unisex and full-length. (He's a 36x30) Cotton fabric probably best. He LOVES his pair from Claire but is jealous I have two pairs. He'd LOVE a pair in a dark blue or dark green as well.

 --  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 or this wallet, or this purse etc. Pillows, aprons, anything! I am just in love with this fabric!

   -- A Day Tote/Weekender Bag. 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. I also really like this one which would be a lovely weekender bag since I don't own any luggage. And of course, Amy Butler's pattern is neat but it wouldn't have to be in her fabric.

 -- Any sewn wist item You can see all the sewing items I've wisted here.


Knitting
 -- 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!)

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

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

 -- Any knitted wist items. You can see all the wisted knit items here.


Other
NEW -- Grin Grin Hand Carved Deer (Buck) Stamp - I LOVE this. I'd love one just like it - large in size like it too - specifically for the same use; making Yule cards.

 --  Grin Batik/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.)

 --  Fitted Style Tee Shirts. Short sleeve, 3/4 length or long sleeve. Fitted in V-neck, scoop or whatever (just nothing that's so low cut it requires another shirt underneath) in size small or US 4 equivalent. (I like the ones from Target a lot but am open to others too!) 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.

 --  Stained Glass Item - sun catcher, nightlight, glass mosaic item, etc. Anything! 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! (HERE are some I've wisted for inspiration/ideas.)

 --  Ceramic/pottery tea mug, oversized mug, or cereal bowl (I eat cereal every single day!) or anything like that. Again, a skill I don't have but really love. (HERE are a couple things I've wisted for inspiration.)

 --  Anything with a phoenix. 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 as inspiration.

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists or my amazon wishlist, my etsy favorites, the colors I like, my favorite animals, or my favorite flower, etc. and see what you can make that you think I'd like! I KEEP MY WISTS UPDATED SO IF IT'S ON THE LIST, I WANT IT! Cheesy
Please Note: I AM in two Christmas Swaps right now which is why there are a lot of Christmas Items on my Wist!


Craft Supplies
--  Grin Grin Jewelry Presentation Displays I have one in black but I desperately need a necklace one in WHITE for photographing my work. I could also use a necklace/earring combo and a bracelet hand. Used ones in good shape are fine too! Any kind of leather/leatherette/vinyl is awesome. These are examples of 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

 -- Grin Grin Gemstone Beads I'd love to use more faceted, briolette and other cut stones. Here are some I really am coveting.
(Listings shown are just for example of the stone. Can easily be smaller quantities for more reasonable cost!)
 - Any gems on my Etsy favorites - Bunches listed here
 -Chrome Diopside Beads - Especially teardrops or briolettes or rondelles would be nice. Example
 - Mexican Fire Opal Rondelle Beads - example or example
 - Hesonite Garnet - example
 - Sapphire Rondelle Beads - In a red/orange/yellow combo. example or example

 -- 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 don'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

 -- Dichroic Glass Beads I love this mix for example. So pretty!

 -- 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 and any 16, 22 or 24 gauge wire is in any color is always useful. (Especially if it's silver-plated!) The Artistic Wire brand is my favorite.

NEW -- Jewelry Hammer and Mini Anvil Set Now that I'm working with wire more, I'd love a jewelry hammer and anvil to flatten my wire and shape it with more control. Hammer example and anvil example. Obviously a mini anvil! Wink

NEW --  Grin Puffy Heart Pendant Instructions/Kit I've wanted to learn how to make this forever! Bonus would be if I had some of the materials needed as well like the stringing material. There's a full kit HERE and another HERE which is totally helpful and even more awesome!!

NEW -- Button Maker I think it'd be fun to make my own buttons. Some sort of starter kit would be great. I've never made any before. Can totally be used/pre-owned!



Extras

 -- Tea! Especially fruity ones. (Caffeinated ones are fine too for my morning cup at work!)
 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.
 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)
 -- Pineapple anything so long as it does NOT have coconut in it. (Candy, snacks, candles, body spray, etc.) Finding pure, straight pineapple is so hard!
 -- Beading/Wire-Wrapping/Jewelry magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin

I claim phoenixfiredesigns for something phoenix inspired


64:
claims: first this round  sent: 0 received: 0


Hi there!

My name is Jess and I'm a 26 year old SAHW living in Ontario, Canada. I'm not girly in the slightest - I prefer geeky things and tend to stay away from things like jewelry and clothing.

My favourite colours are red and black, followed up by pink, and then deep/dark colours in blue, purple and green.  My favourite pattern is spider webs.

I DO NOT like: yellow, orange, neon colours, paisley patterned things.

Some themes I enjoy: Super Mario, Spiders, Alice in Wonderland, Snail Mail, Coraline, old DOS games (my favourite is Ultima!), Steampunk, Invader Zim, Voodoo, General witchery, Xena, legends and mythology.

Some links you might find useful:

 I will jump in and claim Arachnea for something yellow, orange& neon paisley patterned things. JK LOL...

a set of etched glasses and a wists surprise if I can if not something extra anyway Smiley

1/0/0

    Hello all,
       I am Monica your crazy organizer. I am totally in love with my grand-kids, my dogs and even my DH LOL. I have been married 16 years and been raising my grand-kids almost the last 2 of the They are almost 6 year old girl and 2 1/2 year old boy too cute and super fun and they keep us young We live in the last bank of the outer banks of North Carolina. We are on Black Beard the pirates land too cool...We are very Pirate in this area. We hunt, fish a lot, and really have a lot of fun. We are an outdoorsy family and the kids love the beach and searching for treasure on it!

  I am very edgy and girly at the same time. I love Pin up girls, sugar skulls, mermaids, pirates, and even mod but do not care for items that really have no use as I am really cramped here,
I don't ware dark colors or neon Blah...I love pinks, sea green, light blue, yellow, white, lavender, off red not red red , sand, yellow, brown, blues to name a few just think beach girl but it is getting cold so the shoes are not flip flops for me now Sad

 Dislikes:Kelly green!! My grandson is Autistic and this color is ok as an accent but not as anything that has a lot of it or a shirt that sort of thing. I dont like Tyedye, Andy Warhol and neon, Hate puff 3-D paint and foil iron on's and most of all it makes me crazy when you get something that is made with pet hair dried into the paint creepy stuff there

We have a MAJOR smoke allergy here so If you smoke inside please pass me by and if you smoke outside please wash hands before crafting it is not the smoke she is allergic to it is the tar like stuff that stays on the hands and we don't like smoke anyway ~gag~

I'll claim babalina for a surprise and some supplies Smiley

I live in Pa with my hubby, and 2 of our 6 children, the others are all moved out on their own. We have 4 grandaughters and spend our free time bowling, watching football ( God Dolphins & Packers ) and spending as much time as possible with our grandkids. We're making a big life change next summer and retiring early ( 43 and 44 ) to Florida, and living on a houseboat.

I do a wide variety of crafts and can't ever get enough. I love home decor items, useful trinket boxes, kitchen items. My favorite colors are reds, browns, pinks, blues, and greens. I collect anything dolphin related and hubby is a big collector of wolf and native american themed items.

I am claiming dawl for some supplies and something else...

1st claim in this round!

Hi from Michigan where I live with my ultra cool greyhound, Hallo Monster.
I like colors in general. Nothing too florescent or pastel though. I really like greens (espec olive/retro green), blues, burnt orange, dark pink.
Patterns I dislike are country, babyish, or animal skin prints.
Themes/symbols/random stuff I dig include fleur de lis, skulls, greyhounds, retro owls and tattoo inspired sparrows, metal (think industrial/steampunkish), hearts with wings, blankets, tasty beverages, treats, to name a few
Crafts
Handmade ceramic mugs-its getting cold here and the hot drinks will be flowing!
Socks, a few pair would be sweet!- nice warm ones to wear in the house at night like slippers.
Altered hoodies, sweatshirts, shirts, tees etc. recycling or reusing a shirt is cool with me! I am a size medium. Some ideas can be found on my wist.
Hat- I love hats! A newsboy type one which I have a few on my wist. I like all sorts of colors/patterns just nothing florescent or kiddish. A knit or crochet one with a skull would be cool too.
Anything from my wist
Sachets for closet/drawers. No floral please
Kitchen towels that have crochet or knitted tops that button onto the stove handle
Martingale collar for my male greyhound. It has to be a martingale as these are different than regular collars.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martingale_(collar)
Candles, incense, wax tarts
Trivets/hot pads or table coaster for hot dishes
Gnome rubber stamp
Throw/rope/rag rug for kitchen or bathroom medium blue, dark brown, black, retro green
Light pulls (ball chains with a decorated end piece)- my basement lighting is all pull lights! I need some cool (and longer) pulls to hang on them.
Reusable cotton swiffer cover.
Stone/regular coasters-decorated with retro tattoo birds, owls, trees, whatever!
Address plaque for outside (small one with just numbers)
Small wall art-any material/subject, you choose from what you think I might like!
Wrist cuff-metal, leather/pleather, cloth, whatever type of materials you have. There are a few on my wist but they do not have to look like those!
Photographs- I love seeing old buildings, signs, unusual places, color or black and white
Ornaments for the holiday tree- these do not have to be Christmas themed!!
Craft Supplies- these do not have to be new items! Recycling is good!
Retro fabrics (does not have to be actual old but retro looking)
home decorator fabric (thick stuff almost canvas like) even small pieces for little projects (like tags, embellishments, etc)
Chalk or magnetic paint
Unusual embroidery patterns
Felting kit-I am curious about this so Id like to give it a try
Carving tools-for rubber stamp making
Washers that can be metal stamped on.
Basic sewing patterns
Bails- flat backed type similar to anaraku (spelling?)
Newsboy hat pattern
Fragrance or essential oils-(something you have had and are never going to use or did not like it fine with me!)
Extras
Craft magazines, books or photo copied projects you think I might like
Coffee, tea, cocoa mmmm
Treat recipes

I claim sweetyetevil for coasters and an ornament for the holiday tree

2nd claim, 0 sent, 0 rec'd

My name is Teresa.  I live in Ga. with my wonderful hubby of 30 years and our two grown daughters ( who have both returned to the nest to finish their educations).  I have a grown stepson and am Mimi to a 13 year old boy and 7 year old girl.   We share our little homestead with a pet cow, mini donkey ( he's something of a cute bully), three pygmy goats, and seven cats.

I use swaps to collect OOAK gifts for my friends and family so my wist reflects quite a variety of tastes.  Please read tags/notes carefully if you choose something wisty for color preferences, sizes, etc.  I am completely okay with you taking something from my wist and making it in your favorite medium rather than the one pictured.  I can't tolerate the smell of smoke or lavender.

Crafts:

Big Wish:  Yoga Socks!  I desperately want yoga socks made out of wonderfully thin and colorful sock yarn.  These would be for my daughter who has teeny feet, women's size 5 shoe.   ( These may need to be removed from my list.  I've been told by one person so far that a pair of yoga socks is not a medium request.  I want them so so much and I'm hoping some speed-knitter out there will claim me  Wink)  
 Thank you so much elociNNicole!

newBig Wish:  A uterus stuffie ( not knitted or crocheted).  I don't mind stuffing it myself if that would help with shipping.

Big Wish:  A girl's/women's fitted t-shirt in med. or dark blue, hunter green, gray or black that says  Smarmy  on it.  I would want this to be screen printed/ silk screened.  This would need to be either a small or xs.  This daughter doesn't care for those super long fitted t's ( she's barely over 5') but if you have a serger you could get one of those and hem it a bit.  She loves the t's at Target except for the length.  V neck is best but normal scoop neck is okay too ( none of those super wide scoop necks that fall off the shoulders Thanks Mixer, still waiting on the silly post office to deliver this one.

An altered journal in one of the following themes:  words/letters/fonts,  trees,  bees,  leaves, clouds,  70's fashion,  mushrooms.  I prefer pretty, edgy, realistic in this rather than cute

beaded tree sculpture ( not jewelry) in amber/orange/brown (small, even tiny is fine)

anything phrenology themed

new  dolphin themed wall art for a bathroom

new  any of the pin cushions from my wist or any pincushion that you think would suit my taste

cat tent that looks "piratey"

black scoodie in fleece with hood part lined in something silky so my hair won't get crazy

sz. 2 black and white polka dot swirly skirt ( for a 5' tall woman) ( simple is great, doesn't need to be super swirly, just have a bit of swish in it)

sz. 51/2 mukluks with fake leather soles ( looking for that speed knitter again)

new  a full apron in a bee/beehive/honey theme ( No Bears Please!)  size L

anything off my wist  ( please read tags)



supplies:

wool felt ( scraps are fine, its for a penny rug)
any Japanese craft book
bias tape makers
rotary cutter
any knitting loom ( any size, made of anything)
sublime stitching transfers for hand embroidery ( monkey love, zombies, or vital organs) ( It's okay if you've used a couple of the patterns and just send me what you didn't use from the package)
transfer pens
interfacing ( prefer med. or heavy and fusible)
sushi print fabrics
all purpose thread ( new please) (no black, white, blue, green or pink)
any craft books or magazines

extras:

vintage children's books
Bunny Suicide anything
cat toys/treats
gluten free treats ( people treats, not cat  Smiley)

Thank you so much for claiming me!

 I will claim Gamemom42 for a Uterus stuffie ( If not working so well I will send something else of her wists and or list)

2/0/0

1/0/0

    Hello all,
       I am Monica your crazy organizer. I am totally in love with my grand-kids, my dogs and even my DH LOL. I have been married 16 years and been raising my grand-kids almost the last 2 of the They are almost 6 year old girl and 2 1/2 year old boy too cute and super fun and they keep us young We live in the last bank of the outer banks of North Carolina. We are on Black Beard the pirates land too cool...We are very Pirate in this area. We hunt, fish a lot, and really have a lot of fun. We are an outdoorsy family and the kids love the beach and searching for treasure on it!

  I am very edgy and girly at the same time. I love Pin up girls, sugar skulls, mermaids, pirates, and even mod but do not care for items that really have no use as I am really cramped here,
I don't ware dark colors or neon Blah...I love pinks, sea green, light blue, yellow, white, lavender, off red not red red , sand, yellow, brown, blues to name a few just think beach girl but it is getting cold so the shoes are not flip flops for me now Sad

 Dislikes:Kelly green!! My grandson is Autistic and this color is ok as an accent but not as anything that has a lot of it or a shirt that sort of thing. I dont like Tyedye, Andy Warhol and neon, Hate puff 3-D paint and foil iron on's and most of all it makes me crazy when you get something that is made with pet hair dried into the paint creepy stuff there

We have a MAJOR smoke allergy here so If you smoke inside please pass me by and if you smoke outside please wash hands before crafting it is not the smoke she is allergic to it is the tar like stuff that stays on the hands and we don't like smoke anyway ~gag~

I am going to claim Ms. Babalina for a sewing machine cover in that awesome fabric Smiley
(Monica, I will try to get to Joann's this weekend, but if not I'll order the fabric!!)

1st claim this round, 0 sent, 0 pending, 0 received

my name is claire, I live in fabulous new jersey (don't judge us by those jersey shore fools!), i'm a vegetarian, i do yoga, i ride bikes. i love animals (especially cats, owls) and anything bohemian/indie. my favorite colors are blue, orange, teal and green. no allergies but can't stand the feel of velvet and i don't like chocolate or cheesecake. i love the golden girls and harry potter. i have a ridiculous collection of sunglasses. one day i will scoot around on a green vespa. Cheesy

BIG wishes BOLD

I'm claiming claire313 for a wrist cuff and owl purse

This is my first claim this round

My name is Leigh-Ann, Im 24yrs old and live in florida.  I am a single mom to a really smart 3yr old named Levi, and we live with my parents and dog.  I teach sewing classes at JoAnns, have a sewing business, and Im a certified carseat tech!

Things I like: the beach/ocean, travel, bright colors, things for my son, sewing, carseats, animals, my family, dolphins, things that smell good (think scents a kid would pick out!)vegetarian things, environmentally friendly things.

Allergies:  VERY allergic to smoke (washing/spraying with stuff does not help!), we are vegetarian so no leather/feathers etc.  My son is also allergic to many things so no food/plastic items for him (yes he is allergic to some kinds of plastic!).

Things I dont like: pastel colors, anything TV/movie or character related (esp for my son who doesnt watch tv), camouflage, lace, grandma florals, grandma scents




Crafted items:

Anything from my wists:  www.wists.com/leighi123   (this also will give you an idea of the colors I like!)
- knit 'longies' for a 3 yr old, I can provide measurements (so like pants but knit) - he is NOT in diapers so they dont need extra booty room.
-embellished hoodie, XS, lightweight is fine
-handmade clothing for my son (size 3T and bigger), open to anything unique! (but no steryotypical boy stuff like cars/tools/sports/dinosaurs, he doesnt like any of that)
-regular size ironing board cover, not picky on fabric as its in the laundry room
-some sort of rug or floor cover for the bathroom, doesnt need to be too big.  We have an ocean theme -shower curtain so something to go with that theme or any kind of blue/teal/greens etc
-anything to help organize, esp fabric organization!
-a purse that can hold a bigger style wallet, keys, cell phone, hand sanitizer, and chapstick.  I dont really know what style, something durable that I can carry every day kinda thing. Nothing too big.
-vegetarian theme shirt size 3T (no gerber or hanes brand please!), short sleeve
-handmade soap/body wash/conditioner for super duper curly hair that is vegan, all natural (organic even better!), with NO artificial color/scents (essential oil scents are fine)
-handmade chapstick/lip balms - I dont like those melt and pour kinds
-stuff a 3yr old would like (please NO fishing games, matching games, crayon rolls, bags or story dice, we have plenty of these!)
-fabric boxes/bins/baskets
-homeschool related stuff

Supplies:
wonder under or similar
interfacing - any
walking foot for singer or brother machine
thread (regular sewing machine, embroidery, serger cones)
knit fabric, interlock preferred, waffle is good too in solid colors or prints, esp prints like retro cars, ooga booga, giraffes, etc.  (REALLY need a yard of solid red, christmas color kind of red)
knit fabric ribbing, various colors and smaller amounts are fine
2 yard cuts of bottomweight fabric (canvas, twill, duck, denim, etc) in fairly neutral solid colors (black, tan, white, navy, brown, etc)
elastic, all sizes/amounts
fold over elastic, any color
resin snaps (KAM), any color
kids paint

Extras:
- anything mint
