All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!

This is a finished item swap.  Post a "shop" of at least 5 items for everyone else in the swap to choose from.  All items should be finished, and hand crafted.  They do not necessarily need to be crafted by you, but credit the creator wherever possible for items you did not make.

To Sign Up: PM the organizer, raynbow, with a list of at least 5 items you will offer in your shop.  Once you receive approval via PM, you may post your shop.

What is a shop?
A shop is a post in this thread,listing the items that you have available to be claimed.  You don't have to have an actual online shop to participate in this swap.  As long as you can post a list of items, with pictures if at all possible, you have a swap shop!  You can also manage your shop pictures on your own picture hosting and just post links in your shop post.  It's up to you to keep your shop as up to date as possible by removing items that have been claimed and posting any new items you want to add.  Items in your shop should all have a 'price' between 1 and 2 points.  Make sure it's clear how much each item costs.

- The majority of the posts in this thread should be shops.  That's what we all want to see, right?  So let's try and keep all the discussion over here:
- When you claim an item, mail raynbow, xladyluckx, and the person you claim from.  Claims will be first come, first served.  The first person to send a PM to all three of the proper people will get the item.
- Because it's possible for more than one person to claim an item at the same time, wait until you see the recipients name in the send out post before you send.  The send out post will be the ultimate authority on who is getting which item.
- Rather than keeping track of the number of claims, like the other ongoing swaps, we will be using a point system for this swap.  Here are the most important things you need to know about your points:
- Every time someone claims an item from your shop, you get the price of the item in points. (You cannot use your points until you have SENT the item that was claimed.)
- Every time you claim an item from someone else's shop you spend the amount of points in the price of the item.
- Once you have +7 points (either pending or spendable), your shop will be temporarily closed for business until you have less than 7 points.  Please edit your shop post to put 'CLOSED' in large bright letters to make it clear to everyone when your shop is closed.  There will also be a list near the top of the thread with all the closed shops.
- Once you have 0 points, you can't claim any items until you have at least 1 point.
- The organizers will keep a running point total at the top of the thread, but you should try and be aware of your own points too.  Feel free to keep track of your points in your shop post.
- When you receive an item, PM raynbow and xladyluckx and the person who sent it to you.
- Please use DC#s on your packages whenever possible.
- When someone claims an item on your list and is confirmed by an organizer, you are responsible for removing that item from your shop post.

(Please make the title of your PM the name of the swap)

Title: Re: Shop the Swap Round 2
Post by: raynbow on April 30, 2007 08:55:34 AM
How many points do I start with?
If this is your first round, you start with 3 points.  If you were part of round 1 you'll start with a number of points based on how many points you had at the end of last round.

Do I have to post pictures?
It's not required, but it's strongly encourage.  Good pictures will make people more likely to claim your items!

What size items should be in my shop?  What size goes with what price?
You can put any size items in your shop, and you can charge whatever price is fair.  If you really need a guideline, try small for 1 point, medium for 2 points, large for 3 points.  But feel free to judge by other criteria like the expense of the materials, how much you enjoy making the item, how popular the item seems to be, etc.

Why does my shop close when I have 7 points?
When you have 7 points, it means you've had several more claims against your shop than you have made yourself. We want to make sure that no one gets shortchanged, so once several items have been claimed from your list, your shop will be 'closed' until you catch up on claiming some things for yourself.  We also want to make sure no one is 'hoarding' points, so we want you to spend your points and get them back out in the economy.

Why don't I get my points until I have sent my item?
There are several reasons for this.  First of all, it's a good way for us to control how many claims you have going on at one time.  If you don't get your points until your items are sent, you can't have a bunch of packages waiting to be shipped and still be making claims.  It will also help protect our swap from anyone who might flake by not allowing them to make lots of claims if they aren't shipping their items.  And it'll encourage everyone to ship on time, or even faster, so that they can get their points!  We aren't waiting until items are received, because that will make it very difficult for international craftsters to participate in the swap.

Why do you keep changing the rules?
Since this is the first time we've run this swap, in this way, there are still lots of kinks in the system.  We're getting lots of feedback from you guys, and we want to make sure we listen to it.  Also, since we're hoping this will be an ongoing swap, we want to make sure that the rules we make don't make it harder for people to participate in later rounds.

What can I put in my shop post?  Can I put a wishlist?  Can I take requests?  Can I post embarassing pictures of my little brother?
The focus of your shop post, should be your shop! However, as long as you are keeping your shop the focus, and keeping it up to date, and keeping it stocked.... We don't care what you put in there! As long as you aren't breaking any rules of craftster, or any laws, go for it!

I want do do another swap, but the month isn't over, can you go ahead and give me my feedback?
In order to leave the swap early, you need to have at least as many points as you started with.  If you do, you can go ahead and 'close' your shop.  Then, once everything that had been previously claimed from you has been received, you can leave the swap and get your positive feedback.

My points/claims don't match what I think they should.  Is something wrong?
If it has been more than 24 hours since you made the claim.  Or if any of the organizers admit to having been drunk/sick/tired when we last updated the claims or points, go ahead and send us a PM.  Otherwise, give us about 24 hours to get caught up with claims.  If your claim is at least 24 hours old, and something seems wrong, feel free to send us a PM and ask.  If your claim is several days old and something seems wrong PLEASE send us a PM to make sure we received the claim!

I think I have 7 points but you only show me with 6, am I closed?  OR I think I have 6 points but you show me with 7, am I open?  OR Why are my points still pending, I sent those items?
In general, if you have recently changed your points, you're probably right and the point total is probably out of date.  When in doubt, it's fine to go with what you think your status is.  It doesn't hurt to include a little note in any PM's you send letting us know, just in case there is an issue.  (For example,  "XladyluckX just claimed my peanut butter sculpture, but your list shows my shop as closed.  I claimed a couple things recently so I think I should be open and this claim should be ok.")  Now, since you are the person who is the most up to date on your own point total, feel free to help us out a little bit.  Please close your shop when you know you're at 7 points.  Also, feel free to re-open your shop when you know you are at 6 points.  And, if you've sent us a PM saying you sent items, feel free to spend the points, even if they still show as pending points on the list.

What do I need to say in my claim post?
The idea format for claim posts is this:
sender - item - receiver - number of points
If you are claiming multiple items at one time, list each one seperately.  If you just absolutely can't remember that, try and at least get those pieces of information in there.  Who you are claiming from.  What you are claiming.  And how many points the item costs. 

What do I need to say in my send post?
Something like this would be great:
sender sent to receiver this item for this many points
Again, the key items here are the sender, the receiver, the item, and the points.  Please make sure all of those things are in your message.

Can I leave the swap early?
You can leave the swap early, but we'll miss you.  In order to leave the swap early and get your positive feedback all your items need to have been received, and you need to have at least 3 points (you need to have shipped at least as many items as you claimed).

What is the 'sale mode' I hear everyone talking about?  Do I need to put my items on sale?
'Clearance sales' is what we call the end of the month when we're trying to wrap everything up and even up everyone's points.  You don't have to put anything on sale, but many people do.  But the real goal of the sale time is for everyone to try and get back to 3 points (the amount of points you started with).  So during clearance sales, the only stores that are open for shopping are stores where people have less than 3 points.  And the only people who can do any shopping are people who have more than 3 points.

All my items are 1 point!

1 Green acrylic and polyester blend panta.  Made with chunky yarn, so it's very wide.  It's not too tight on my big fat head, so it should fit big heads fine.  If you have a smaller head, you might need to trim it up a little bit.  Also, since it's so wide, it'll be really warm during the winter I think.

I also have a pinkishpeachish and white cotton panta, no picture yet.

One felted soap! The soap is glycerin base, so it's vegetarian.  It's got green tea in it, and an apple scent.  I think it smells sort of like a spicy apple chai!

One more felted soap.  Glycerin base.  Pearberry scented, mmmmm.

Another felted soap! Orangey vanilla scent.  Felted with a mix of wool and alpaca, much softer than some of my other felted soaps, try this one if you've been worried about them being scratchy!

(If you would like felted soaps of a specific scent, please let me know.  Color is also somewhat chooseable, limited by what I have in my scrap pile!)

I don't have any sheepy soaps pre-made.  But I can make them up easily, so go ahead and claim if you'd like them.  The current batch of sheepy soaps are being made with an awesome shea butter base.  Available scents include rose, plumeria, pearberry, vanilla, baby powder, clean and soapy, orange, mango, lavendar mint, jasmine chamomille, peach ..... i feel like i'm forgetting something.... those are most of them!

Loofah soaps!  The blue one is jasmine chamomille scented. The peach one is, you guessed it peach.  They are 1 point each, but with them you can also choose 2 guest sized soaps (not pictured.)  I have mango scented turtles and plumeria scented froggies!

Duck on the water soap.  Miniature rubber ducky floating on a yummy aqua olive oil soap, baby powder scented.  And so he won't get lonely on the trip, a light aqua, pearberry scented glycerin soap buddy!

I also have another one of these that is a duck lying down instead of sitting up in the soap, and the soap is slightly lighter and less translucent.
Polymer clay barettes, set of two.
Polymer clay covered altoid tin, lid comes completely off.
Polymer clay bead bracelet.  It is not highly sanded or polished, the beads have a very matte surface.  Stretchy cord.
Seed bead bracelet.  I should have taken a picture of this on my wrist.  It looks very scrunchy here but that's just because it's on a stretchy cord.  It flattens out nicely on your wrist.
Seed bead bracelet.  This one is not on a stretchy cord.  It should fit a small adult or large child.
Seed bead rings.  Your choice of ??several??.
Flower beads!  Handmade from polymer clay.  TEN beads for 1 point, mix and match from any of my beads.  (The people beads are all gone now, but most of the others are still available!)
Click the link to see the rest of my beads. (

And a couple 2 point items:

Blue Jean batt -Approximately 50g wool,cotswold curls, angelina for sparkle (hard to see in the picture)

Raspberry Ice batt - Approximately 50g handdyed wool, cotswold curls, and some sparkle

Post by: ptarmic wumpus on April 30, 2007 09:20:01 AM
CLOSED until June

Returning after June 3!
Coming in June:

more batik
more felt, maybe some nuno too
messenger bags and laptop sleeves

Firstly, it should be known that my household is non-smoking, but I do have two furry cats. Please pm me if you need more detailed info about any of the items. 


1A. Fabric wallets (from the Wonder Wallet pattern), approx. 4.5" in width, velcro closure, coin and card pockets. I have two, pick one. (1 pt each) (

1B. Yes, it is a...poncho.  ::) BUT it is a poncho made of a really lovely silk georgette, black with huge (huge) floral print. The fabric is really really nice. Hand-rolled hems, roughly 45" square (with a hole in the center, because it was made some years ago when there was a poncho thing going on). Use as a poncho, convert to an evening wrap, or cut it up into your own fabulous project. (

1E.  Snaily from fulled sweater sleeves; sweaters reclaimed from thrift stores. Wool, poly fiber stuffing. (1 pt) (

1G. Bear-purse for a child, synthetic sherpa, cotton lining, zipper top closure. Will hold a few small items; from a Simplicity? pattern. (1 pt) (

1H. Pillowcover for an 18-20" pillow form, Tan with applique sweater bits and buttons on the front, dark brown on the back. Invisible zipper closure.  Linen, sweaters, buttons. (1 pt) (

1I. Felt cthulhu ipod/small electronic device pouch. I made this guy a few years ago soon after I learned to felt, and he travelled with me to school a few times, but my current situation (cats who chew on things and office environment) are not conducive to tentacled ipod cozies and he needs a new loving home. (1 pt) link because the image is large (
You can even see photos of him being made in this photo-heavy page: (

1J. Batik tea towel, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. Cotton, batiked with procion dyes and soy wax. I think it is 24 by 38 inches. (1 pt) claimed! (


2A. Silk/rayon velvet cloche-ish style hat, fits a 22.5" head circumference. From a Vogue pattern. (2 pts) (

2B. Small sequined fish ornament/toy. Silk dupioni, sequins, and beads. I can add a hanging loop if desired. (2 pts) (

2C. Blue vinyl purse, 16 inches from bottom to top of handles, cotton lining. Manta ray reverse applique. (2 pts) (

2D. Chopstick purse, from a McCalls pattern. Irridescent silk dupioni lined with cotton OR sushi print cotton, chopstick handles, plastic canvas, magnetic closure. Size 10" by 5". Due to the plastic canvas interfacing, this bag is very stiff. Color brighter in real life (purple/blue cross weave). (2 pts each) ( ( sushi print purse claimed!

2E. Felted bag with polkadots; button and loop closure, unlined, 8x6 inches. (2 pts) ( (

2F. Felting needle roll ~22 by 14 inches unfolded. Holds up to 15 felting needles of various lengths (using plastic straws); folds over to prevent needles from falling out, tie closured. Sort needles by color if desired.  Cotton, linen, fusible fleece, plastic straws.  I can custom make these in the size you want (small versions might be only 1 pt). This larger version is 2 pts. and has been claimed! But I can make more of these in different fabrics and sizes, so I am going to leave up the photos. ( (

2G. Cherry blossom sweater tote. Needle felted and beaded blossoms on a recycled sweater; ultrasuede handles and cotton cherry blossom lining. (2 pts) (

2H.  owl and cat Mark 2, from a Burda WOF magazine December 1972. Dark burgundy wool gabardine, cotton, polyfill. Not suitable for very small children. As before, they go as a pair. (2 pts for both) (

2I. Stratocumulus Sunset, felt hanging, 20" by 15". Wool. (


3B. Looking for a vintage-y summer dress?  This is a 1927 tea frock from a Folkwear pattern (not actually vintage, it is a few years old but never worn). Rayon voile in dark red with fluttery cap sleeves, dropped waist, and snap side closure. Meant for a size 32.5 bust, 28 inch waist, 39 inch hip. Note that this style is meant for a 20s silhouette - flat chest, no belly, no hips. On someone busty, it looks like a maternity sack, and will emphasize the hips if you have them. Fabric is semi-sheer and needs to be worn over a slip or other garment. Handwash cold, line dry. (3 pts) ( (

3C. Silk jacquard summer top, from a vogue pattern. Really nice silk jacquard with a peachy floral print, fluttery wing sleeves sleeves, drawstring waist with rattail cord, worn one time. Loose fit, meant for a 32.5 inch bust, 29 inch waist. Handwash cold, line dry. (3 pts) ( (

3D. Semi-sheer boxy jacket for evening. Raglan sleeves, contrast collar, never worn. Burnout metallic silk jacquard in black and bronze lined with metallic silk organza in bronze. Loose fit meant for a 32.5" bust/29" waist. Dry clean only. (3 pts) (

3E. Dolman sleeved lined jacket, from a KwikSew pattern. Outer and lining both in quilting cotton; crane print outer, solid green inner. Has two welt pockets, frog closures, and long sleeves. Loose fit, meant for a 32.5" bust and 29" waist, with several inches of ease (especially at the bust due to dolman styling). Machine wash cold, machine dry gentle. ( (

And....random freebies, combine with any of the above items. Can also go with packages that I have not yet shipped.

A. I bought a ball of string at the thrift store, and found when I got home that there was a mostly-finished tatted? crocheted? doily-thing inside. It is still connected to the ball of string, and there are safety pins around the edge. The outer edge of the doily is only partially complete. You get the doily and as much of the string as you think you will need (there is a lot). The string appears to be cotton. (

B. An altered book with some issues, board book with octopus themed poem. The issues are 1) the color scheme is a little odd, as this was for the "triad" color assignment for a color theory class, so everything is supposed to be either red-violet (includes pink), orange-yellow, or blue-green; 2) I used lumiere, matte medium, and scrapbooking paper (ugh), and the paint/paper cracks along the inside seam of the book. I can't fix it, maybe you can. 3) I am *not* expert at any kind of papercraft. Here is a sample page: (

Coming in the next month!
lily pond felt
messenger (and mini messenger) bags
various clothes

Sorry, We Are CLOSED until June.

Welcome to ...

First Come, First Served

On offer:

Diamond Dog (2 Points): Get your own tribute to the Thin White Duke right here. Made from a vintage Burda pattern and modern Alexander Henry fabric, he measures 10 inches from tail to tip. Don't you want to bring him home?:

From Here Down, Your Choice of 3 Items for 1 Point

Sweat Shop Goodies: OK. So, I was cleaning up and had to make some hard decisions about what I will actually use. Sadly, these three didn't make the cut. With compliments to their makers -- Saor, serialcrafter and glittergirl94 -- we have a felt flower brooch, an anklet with heart charms and a red and orange felted sunglasses case:

Italian Glass Bead Earrings: No story, just darn cute drop earrings.

Don't Mess With Texas Wrist Cuff: Made from a classic t-shirt and backed with dark, dark denim. Velcro closure accomodates a variety of wrist sizes:

Melted CD Tealight Holders (Set of Four): Smaller than those records in your vinyl collection, melted cds make for a perfect tealight holder. Bubbly and sparkly, with a variety of different labels for added interest. You will receive four assorted melted cds, plus four tealights. All for one point. What a bargain:

Set of 7 "Deathproof" Magnets: I know I'm in the minority, but I enjoyed the Quentin Tarantino half of "Grindhouse" far more than the Robert Rodriguez one. So much so that I was inspired to make some magnets. One for me and one to share:

Beads and Buttons Ponytail Holders (1 Pair): Black bands with beaded flowers and button centers in red/topaz:

Embroidered Onesies (Both Onesies Count as One Item): This poodle is the very first thing I ever embroidered (oh, about two years ago). I made it for a friend's baby boy, only to be told that it was "too girlie." Oh well, his loss is your gain. Never worn, it has short sleeves and will fit a 3 to 6 month old. Speaking of girls ... that girl is poison. Here's another short-sleeved onesie. This one will fit a 6 to 9 month old. The word is done in green metallic thread:

Knitwit's Shop is NOW CLOSED - Will re-open in June! Thanks for the claims everyone!

All items come from a pet-free and smoke-free home. I can handle requests, so send me a pm!

Roving dye kit: Want to try Kool-Aid dying but don't know where to start? In this kit you get: 1 oz soft white mill ends roving, (85% wool, 15% mohair) 2 packets Kool-Aid, (you choose colors - I have a lot of them, including the Mexican Aguas Frescas - we can work it out in a pm) and complete instructions. It's safe to dye in your kitchen using regular cooking stuff because Kool-Aid is a food-grade dye. No worries. 1 point. I've sold a few but just made 2 more.

Amigurumi Hanging Bird: I got this cutie in a swap but have been spring cleaning and trying to lighten up a little. I think he should go to a good home where he will be adored. 1 point.

Felt Bead Kits: Here is what you get: a quart sized bag filled with a rainbow of different fibers (1 oz) and instructions (with pictures) on how to make felt beads. Kit will make about 20 huge beads, 30 mixed beads, or 40 small beads. (Numbers are based on my results, bead quantity depends on what size you make your beads!) 1 point.

Examples of beads you can make:

Rapunzel Scarf Kit: For those wanting a fun project but maybe you don't have the insane fiber stash that I do... (don't tell) I'll send you enough yarn to make a rapunzel scarf, you just have to braid it up. All of the yarn is cut to about 10 feet in length. Included will be some luxury fibers, novelty yarns and homespun, as well as some filler type yarn as well. I can even customize this for your color preferences! NOTE: I after selling 3 of these in as many days, I'm raising the price to 2 points!

example of fibers I'll send:

example of a scarf:

Knit cuffs! You get a pair. I made too many and need to clear some out. These are 100% cotton and are machine washable. They fit 6" to 8" wrists. 1 point. Pick any two: (2 blue on left claimed by Laughing Lark - thanks!)


Here is an example of how they look ON the wrist:

How about a knit hat for your Blythe Doll? This one is made from Noro Silk Garden Lite: 1 point.

Dice stitch markers: Here is a set of four, in your choice of red, lime green or medium blue/green. Each marker fits needles 0 through 10.5 comfortably because there are two rings on there. 1 point.

New Batts: Here are TWO new, hand-dyed batts I carded using mixed wool, mill ends, mohair, silk noils, bits of bamboo and angelina sparkle fiber. They fit in a one-gallon plastic bag and weigh at least an ounce or more. Can be spun or felted. #1 is "Sunrise", a blend of pinks, purples, tans, etc. and #2 is "Atlantic", a blend of blues, green and purples. 1 point each. CLAIMED by Loves2experiment - thanks!

Sale---some items reduced---Sale

First of I have to admit that I smoke! Since joining the last round of this swap I don't smoke in my room anymore + everything I make gets washed right away and then stored in my brothers 100% smoke free room.

You can click on the pictures to get to the bigger versions!

1 Point items:

new blue summer head bandclaimed by nicolassa (
This headband is made out of a cotton/acryl/viscose mix(very light weight). It's the second one I made, it's a bit narrower than the first one(if you like this one, but not the color, pm me I can easily make more).

handknit kids socks, chose one pairSale:All 3 for 1 Point or 1 pair for 0.5 Point:claimed by atsuko (
The pairs one the left and right are wool socks(machinewashable!) and the one in the middle is a cotton/wool blend if I remember correct.
left pair: foot(from toe to heel):approx. 6.5'' long; 6-7'' circumference
middle pair: approx. 6'' long; 6-7'' circ
right pair: 4'' long; 5,5-6'' circ

stitch marker set of five: (

crocheted belt: (
Pictured is my belt, I will make yours to your measurements!

Fabric brooches, chose one Sale: 0.5 Points for 1: (
They are my newest obsession, but a girl only needs so many yoyo-brooches  :D Please note that my handsewing still needs to be perfected! It's all secure, but the stitches are not perfect as you can see here (

Calorimetry, handdyed and very soft lambs wool Sale: 0.5 Points for 1: (

2 Point items:

new dead octopus...hmm, or is it a hexapus?  (
Why did the ghost of this octopus come back? If only he had a mouth to speak!
approx. 3'' high and 6.5'' from one arm tip to the opposite one. Note, this one is probably not kid safe.

handdyed yarn (
These were dyed with the exact same colors, how different it looks in the roving compared to the sock yarn! Chose either the roving(around 60g+) claimed by redheadskydiveror the 100g sock yarn for 2 Points.

Knitted little smurf: (
It's made from a 1979 Burda pattern! I used acrylic yarn so it's machine washable. Depending on wether you want it for a little kid I will sew on black felt or black beads for the eyes.
approx. 11" high

knit-felted clutchSale: 1 Point: ( (
It's been unfinished for so long, but I finally learned how to sew in lining properly. Featuring a vintage button.
approx. 8" wide and 5.5" high

knit hat made out of handdyed woolSale: 1 Point: (
I made this one for myself awhile ago, but not even once wore it!

crocheted purseSale: 1 Point: (
Approx. 8.5 inches wide and high. It is not lined cause as I said above my handsewing skills somewhat lack a bit. But it could be used as it is or I will send some coordinate fabric with it or I will *try* sewing the lining too if it gets claimed(I have to learn it anyway someday so why not now  :D) My handsewing skills are getting a lot better, so if you want I will line it, no prob.

3 Point items:
Cupcake purse: ( (
Big enough for a little knit or crochet project and lined. The bottom is reinforced with interfacing. It's actually round, the picture is not the best.
approx. 5'' in diameter and 9.5'' high

Cross stitch: (
Inspired by subversive cross stitch I had this in others in my mind for a long time. It's german and means coward, though that's only part the fun. "Angst"=fear and "Hase"=bunny
I originally intended to frame it in a painted IKEA frame, but since I never framed a cross stitch...better not mess it up ;)
Design approx. 4.75" wide and 2.3" high

Sold items:
Notebook:claimed by la_chrystelle (
This was my first try at making a bookcover. It's not perfect and pretty small so only 1 point.(but hey, it's Moschino fabric!!! ::))

sock yarn, 100g for 2 Pointsclaimed by loves2experiment (
This yarn is only 1 Point each! The pink one is only 50g of sock yarn, maybe use a coordinate yarn for the toe and heel part to make socks?claimed by penguino
The one on the left is a really fine lace ladder yarn. It's incredible soft, but very very fine. I brought it to dye and knit together with another yarn...ok, the real reason was because it was a great bargain and who can resist those  8)claimed by loves2experiment

Three Points
Furry hat, as modeled by Wilson, direct from his starring role with Tom Hanks in Castaway!!
Ok, so it isn't really Wilson.  It's his ugly brother.  Modelling the hat.  Made in Funfur, this hat is stretchy, and fits an adult head (or a child)... and while I can't guarantee that the ears are precisely even, you have to admit, it's darned cute!

One Point
Felted Flower for your hair?
This is the felted camillia pattern from Noni... and I knitted it up with pencil roving that had been dyed with Wilton dye, and a thin strand of a mohair type... and it didn't felt a ton, but it's awful pretty - could add it to your hat, or a scarf?  About 7" in diameter

One Point

Non-smoking home, but we do have a beagle that somehow manages to get hairs into pretty much everything. I try my best to keep craft items hair-free, but I can't guarantee I catch 'em all!

Oh!  I also have a teddy bear - he was one point last round.  I won't raise my rates on you guys.  He will still be one point so if you didn't get him last round and you wanted to - he will be available for one super point! 

You all thought I would never open, aye? 
I am going to take pics of the things I don't have pics of and get them uploaded here shortly.

Note - I am going on vacation - I am leaving on Thursday, May 24 - and will be coming back Thursday May 31 - so if you pick something from me I won't be shipping out until I get back unless you get to pick before I go to the post office tomorrow!

Unless otherwise noted, all of the following are made by me, hand-stitched.  All stuffies are made with synthetic felt and polyfill.

I live in a smoke-free, pet-free, and otherwise allergen-free environment.

I will make customs of everything here.  That's why I'm leaving the pictures of my claimed items up.


All packages shipped in these last few days will include freebee items equal to one point.  You may chose your items, or I will throw in something random!

All items below are 3 for 1 point.

Owl  Claimed!

These particular hats are not available, but are only examples.  Due to people having different sized heads, I will make every kitty hat custom.  They're machine sewn with fleece.  The inner ears are either cotton or that fuzzy fabric in the first picture.  Please include head size and desired colors in your claim.

Set of 4 Coasters

4 1/4" across.  These are the first coasters I've ever made. That's why they're only 1 point!  You get all 4.

Coffee Cup with caffeine molecule  Claimed Twice!

White Cake with Strawberry  Claimed!

These specific ones aren't available.  They went to a group of 5th grade girls.  They all have tassels with school colors, also.  Include tassel colors and owl colors in the claim, please.

All below are 2 points

Button Bangle

Tons of buttons hand stitched onto a 1 1/2" strip of elastic.  I wouldn't price these so high, except that they take me a really long time to make!

These are examples of others I have made.  If you don't like the blue or pink, I can make customs, but they will take extra time for me to put together!

Two Points:  Sparkley Pink Bookmark, to class up your reading.  Both ends of this shimmery pink ribbon are adorned with a smattering of pink, clear, and irridescent crystals.  Long enough to comfortably fit a paperback novel. Approximately 9 inches long, not including crystal danglies. (

Closeup of the crystal ends: (

 Sterling silver earrings with Tahitian Black pearls, Freshwater round pearls, and Freshwater seed pearls, black and irridescent clear swarovski crystals.  These are really lovely--they sparkle, hang nicely, and match everything.  Three points. (

Cupcake Dishcloths, to sweeten the everyday task of washing those pesky dishes.  Made with 100% cotton and sure to please even the grouchiest dishwasher.  There are actually three included in the price (two with the blue frosting) but I took the pic before the third was done.  It is identical to the blue frosting one.  The purple frosting one?  Well, let's just say that there are a few things wrong with it, namely that it was the first (ever hear of the first pancake syndrome?  well this is the first cupcake: "special") and that it demonstrates my (lacking) crochet skills on the frill.  I switched to knitting for the blue one.  ;D  Measurements = roughly 5.25" tall and 6" wide. Anyhoo, all three for 2 points.
Temporarily Unvavailable.  Pls PM if interested (

All earrings are made with sterling silver components (hooks, rings, chain, wire, etc), unless otherwise indicated.


One Point

#4- Pink patterns

#5- Pretty swirls!

One Point Items

1. Baby Bib + Washcloth Set- Cute cotton bib and washcloth set!

2. Warm Mary Jane Slippers- I crocheted these from super soft chunky acrylic yarn. I think these would best fit size 6.5-7.5 US.

3. Hand Crocheted Beads- I crocheted cotton thread around 15 mm wooden beads. You will receive all 11 beads!!

4. Sweet Crocheted Cupcakes- These are perfect as pincushions or as eye candy-- the "sprinkles" are actually colorful straight pins! These are 2" (5.08 cm) tall and 8" (20.32 cm) around. You will receive one.
In stock: vanilla, chocolate

7. Juicy Watermelon Brooch-
3-D felt pin made of felt and cute embroidered seeds!

8. Cute Tooth Brooch- Kinda rhymes, huh? This adorable brooch gives a reason as to why the tooth fairy is so eager to get her hands on teeth... 3-D felt pin.

Two Point Items

1. Little Piggy- Adorable amigurumi pig I crocheted. It stands about 3" (7.62 cm) tall.

2. Spring or Rainbow Washcloth Set- Choose 1 set. Each set has two nubbly scrubby washcloths for the kitchen or tub! Made from 100% cotton. In stock: spring, rainbow

Attention Day of the Dead fanatics!

Sugar Skull Brooches: These are 2 points because a ton of time went into designing each individual style as well as choosing the right threads, sequins, and beads. All are handmade from felt, embroidery thread, glass beads, and sequins.




Thanks for stopping by!
