But nobody wants to touch a freezing Ipod! Just like you want to be cozy and need to wear a jacket, so does your Ipod! This swap will be a fun and easy, no stress swap. All you must do to participate is to crochet, knit, sew, felt or any other form of craft an Ipod cozy. It can have a pattern, design, picture, Initials of your partners name, or anything else that you would like.It could also be a monster or creature cozy. This cozy will cover the entire Ipod, there will be no hole for the screen or circle, unless you cover the hole with plastic or some material and not leave it out in the open. Communicate with your partner whether or not they would like this. I will try to match people with others who have the same type of Ipod. However if this is not possible, I will post the measurements of the Ipods. You may make a strap for the cozy or a hole at the bottom for the earphones. You may make the cozy big enough to fit the headphones inside. Any other ideas or questions you may post here. You must have a DC tracking number as proof that you have mailed out. After recieving you must post pictures or inform your partner beforehand that you will not be able to post pictures and if they could please take them for you.

Hahah!  I kept telling my mother that it would be quick and easy (just in case I needed a trip to the post office... though highly unlikely).  Astica, you should join!  ;D

Oh I know it's quick! :D
Just I've been intense-swapping XD I'm close to my 5 spots, so I'm waiting for something to arrive before I sign up for something else ><

Also, question!
I have two ipods (a mini and an 'old' nano)
Would I be able to have two swap partners? (I make for two people & two people each make me one ipod cozy) Or are we only allowed one partner each?

I was actually just thinking about this!!! I'm sure I could arrange this if you join but if it gets too problematic I may ask you to choose one iPod although I see no reason that it should. :)

I don't see any reason why it would be problematic, but I guess it's good to think of the worst case senario - so whatever happens has to be better  ;)

I'm also generally an early sender, so I won't be too much of a hassle for you ;) (If someone flaked that was making two, it'd be harder to get angels in place. But I can personally guarentee you that I will not be a flaker.)

I think it would be a great idea   :)
I just have one question:
since I am a first-time swapper, and I am not aloud to have more than one swap going on until I have successfully completed one swap, would this count as two for me, or not (I surely hope not, but it seems like it)?


Title: Re: Ipod Cozy Swap ( Sign-ups, Oct 9-20; Sendouts: Nov.7 )
Post by: Astica on October 10, 2007 04:47:27 PM
From my general knowledge, if you send twice within one swap, it's still only considered to be one swap.

When you're in a swap, the data for it appears on your profile. You can only have one 'in progress' swap to start, and after that one, you can have up to five.
For each swap you'll only see one 'in progress' box on your profile.

Here's an example.
The Sweat Shoppe Swap requires you to send out either 5 or 10 times. If each sendout counted as a seperate swap, sending out 10 would be 'illegal' on Craftster.

In summary, as long as you're sending multiple times within the same swap, it still only counts as one swap.

And welcome to the swap world! :D

ooh-kay  :D
Thankyou for that  info :)  Yay, so I am willing to swap out two ipod cozies if/when that is possible.
Is it just me, or is the swap world made out of marshmallows? :P

Well when I give the feedback it will not count as two swaps so I guess for a first time swapper it is the same. If you would like TWO Ipod Cozy's sent to you whether it is for one iPod or for two different ones please PM me when you PM the Questionare. If you have already sent it in then please send me another PM with the Questionare again and write in the subject line "x2".

-Ha! two posts were posted while I was typing this one so let me answer them now,
CrochetNinja, I'm a little confused with what you want to do, Astica has TWO iPods and will send to Two different swappers who will send back to her, I am not forcing someone to make two iPod cozies (for one person) but if you would like 2 cozies whether you have one iPod or Two, you of course can
Astica, thank you very much for giving such a gr8 example with the sweatshoppe swap :)

do you want me to re-fill-out the questionnaire, too (I might leave a few things out by accident)?

If you want to sure but make sure to  send me the main and important information and to put x2 in the subjest so i don't think that it was an accident that your name is on the sendout list twice

Ooh, I'm thinking about this.  An iPod cozy sounds like a quick fun project.  (Which begs the question of why I haven't made one for myself yet...  :P )

Just wanted to confirm that if I ask for / send out two cozies, it still only counts as one swap.  I'm running a little short on available swap spots.

Also, could I ask for a cozy that will go over my existing iPod case?  I have an iPod mini, vintage 2003, and they are notoriously fragile.  I bought a neoprene case when I got the iPod, and while the case has taken some abuse (it used to be baby blue, now it's kinda... coffee-stained  :-\ ) it's structurally sound, and the iPod looks brand-new and works great (knock on wood).  Even with the case, the whole thing is smaller (but thicker) than a full-size iPod.

I'm tempted.... but I have a question.... I rarely use my ipod anymore now that I got my iPhone.  Could I join if I wanted my partner to craft for the iPhone instead?

If I was your partner, I wouldn't mind (but of course I'm not the swap organizer).  It isn't too different from an ipod  :)

Post by: Astica on October 11, 2007 01:39:15 PM
My guess for both the iphone and the cover over a previous cover would be that it would be fine... as long as you supplied the accurate measurements, but I'm also not the swap organizer XD

heh wow Astica, your guess is correct I was about to type that as long as you give me the dimensions it shouldn't be a problem unless your partner is not okay with it. I hope you all join! :)

LOL, I just got my new ipod nano after the strange dissaperance of my old nano, and the more i see it the more i feel it needs a name...but i'm not so sure what would suit him... I kinda planned a cozy with Ipodcito (little ipod) written all over... :P but i've been lazy with the pattern... But I have such an obsession making clothes for him(hey, it's a boy...), the old one left a stash of clothes, cos whoever took it, forgot his clothes... my poor baby must be cold...
But the new one needs clothes, sooooooo, I'm soooooooooooo in.... I'll go send my info right now...

Michela-
- Yes-sir-re-bob, I won't have time to feel guilty about crafting ( instead of studying ;)) cause this swap will be so quick!!!! yay!!! oh....Georgie is a darling name!!

Sphinxy--Oh My!!!! Your poor Ipod-napped naked baby!!!!!!! I bet he misses his clothes too, gosh thats terrible!! you should put up "missing" signs of him in his "sunday best" and post them around.....hee hee...okay, im kidding, but still..thats awful.

Lol, i've thought of doing that... :P but the amazing thing is that no one came to the house the weekend he wen't missing... We(my brother, my mom and me) did a exhaustive search of him, but it just didn't show up.... from time to time i still grab his tiny clothes in hope that he'll just magically be there :P

I'd better not let it see this thread... otherwise it will realize it's been deprived, and start playing only sad songs  :P

All ipods need names! When I bought mine, I spend hours mulling over names (largely because I had a two hour subway/bus ride back to my house from the apple store). Naming it makes it harder to question the fact that you just spent $400 on something quite tiny that didn't come in a little blue box with a white ribbon lol

Hey everyone, I'm really sorry that I haven't been on in a while but i was away for the weekend and was not able to post when I would be back, well I'm back now and found a ton of Private Messages waiting for me. Reading all of these posts made me realize that I was missing a question from the questionare " If your iPod has a name, what is it?" . I guess when people get their partners they could PM each other that info. I'm updating everything now and I am getting so excited for this swap  :).

This was exactly what I was thinking. I was looking for a swap that I could be in but I had to keep my schoolwork in  mind and realized I would not have a lot of crafting time! So I came up with a small swap that I figured woud cheer everyone up!

I thought that you NEED to name your iPod when you register it onto Itunes. Hmm... maybe not? hehe and  Michela you are totally right about why people name it. That's defiantely one of the main reasons that I named mine!

Yup, I named mine Ale's Ipod, but that takes away bit of his personality, cos it's just like it belongs to me, but nothing else... like when u marry someone and u become mrs. someone... :P (mrs. purse in my case... :P can u believe it!!!)

haha, yes.  And because of that discussion, I have been thinking about naming my Ipod.  And it's name is now Shirley.  I don't know anyone name Shirley, so it works out fine  :D.  yay  a monster cozy would be cool!

Oh yay! I just got my first ever iPod, new to me but not brand-new--my best friend got an iPhone and so didn't have any use for his barely-used iPod anymore, so he sold it to me for cheap. Poor baby is naked in the chilly Chicago fall, though, but hopefully not for long!

I wish I had some idea of what to do. I guess I'll have to wait until I get my swapper to figure it out. Hopefully the info will give me some idea lol :) Keep your fingers crossed for me :-D

I'm waiting for either my apron swap or my stuffie swap to get to their destination so I can get my feedback from it. It appears as if I should be getting this on the 19th or 20th, but I'm really fretting that it might be a day or two after that D:
There isn't any way that the final signup date could be postponed a day or two, could it? ^^;
And if it can't be I'll understand <3 I'll just be praying to Canada Post tonight for those packages to get there! XD

well you are allowed up to 5 swaps at a time and if at the moment they are all full then you cannot join just yet. If you would really like to join I may be able to arrange something but I do not want to keep anyone waiting for any longer for their partners. But you have been active in this swap and you aren't even in it yet so maybe something will work out maybe talk to your other swap organizer and see what she can do for you. I'm sure your packages will arrive soon though. Fingers crossed for ya! ;)

I'm currently 'in progress' for - here's my stats for them:

sweat shoppe swap 11
- I've send 2/5. I'm not allowed to send the other 3 yet cause they're not done crafting yet ^^; and we have to wait till their finished their items before we're allowed to send to them
Felt Mascot or Little Stuffie Swap R6 Halloween! - waiting for it to arrive
Button Addicts Swap - it's arrived. Waiting for feedback from swap organizer.
Kitschy Kitchen Apron Swap - waiting for it to arrive
Bargain Hunter Swap Round 3- organizing, singups aren't even closed yet

I'm about 85% certain that either the little stuffie one or the apron one will arrive on the 19th or 20th, but after my partner recieves, it might take a day or two to get feedback - that's probably the bit I'm most worried about.

Prehaps... would it be legit for me to send you my form, but to not officially sign me up untill the very last minute? :/
That way you'd be able to still make sure all the partners work out. But I certainly wouldn't want to do anything if it was violating any terms of craftster.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Well since I'm one of your not green yet people for the SSS11 I have good news... I'll be green tomorrow.  :)

I'm thinking about joining this one too. there was a great crochet pattern for an ipod cozy in one of my latest magazines and I have been dying to try it out. It calls for a yarn called sassy stripes. Turns out I just picked some up on sale the other day, and didn't know what to make with it.

Nikkidear - whoot!  :D
But what I'm worried about the most is that I have one international shipping I have to do - and she's the only one I have yet to hear from XD
Luck just isn't on my side now, is it? She'll be the last one I send off, and the one that takes the longest to travel ^^; But it's not her fault that I'm tight for swaps XD

I find it odd though that while I'm signed up for 5 swaps, at the moment there isn't a single thing I can do for any of them. 3 have been sent, one is in it's signup stage, and with the last I need to wait for others before I can send. Probably a good thing though... I still have a dress to finish that I need for this weekend! XD

I am getting so excited. This is my first swap here on Craftster. How does one do the swapping? Are we given partners to swap with, or is it a random swap where we do not know who has our name?

Post by: TheCraftyCat on October 18, 2007 12:32:59 PM
We'll each get a partner (or two, for those of us who signed up for two cozies).  So, say you and I are partners... I'll make a cozy that will fit your iPod and take your preferences into account, and at the same time, you will make a cozy for my iPod, taking my preferences into account.  Then we send to each other, receive packages from each other, open said packages, and go "oooh!"  :D

Only two days left for anyone else to sign up!! hmmm... I only have three spots left, maybe I'll let it go no higher than 25(this is being optimistic ;))? If anyone else sends in your info and has a nano please tell me which generation and do not write "old" because there are now 2 old nanos and it may confuse your partner.

Post by: Astica on October 18, 2007 06:29:07 PM
wait wait, what?
2 old nanos? Oo
I was under the impression that there was just that rectangular one (that I have) and that one that's new and looks a lot more square-ish.

Did I skip a generation? XD

On the front page you have:
old iPod Nano-3.5" by 1.6/8" by 2/8"
new iPod Nano - 2.2" by 1.8" by 4"

So I thought if I put 'old' I'd be just. But I have fixed it now to say 1st generation ^^

Broke in which way?
My mini won't attatch to any computer... like the computer won't even recognize it to restart it XD So to me, it's 'broken', but it still works - I just don't have anything recent on it.
I have a friend who managed to have about 80% of their screen turn black and have a crack in it, but still have it play music.
Then there are the ones that're literally in two pieces, the ones with dead batteries, and the ones that straight out don't work.

well.. it first just randomly deleted everything and I had to reformat it about five times and now when I turn it on it has that folder with the exclamation point on it. My computer no longer recognizes it so I can't reformat it again. I'm taking it to the Apple store tomorrow..

Yup there are three generations of nano... the first one that was only in black and white and you could only get 1 or 2 gb I think... then the second gen, that kinda looked like the mini just slimmer and had more colors, and the third, that's the fatty :P
There...
1st generation 90x40x6.9 mm
2nd generation 90x40x6.5 mm
3rd generation 69.8x52.3x6.5 mm

I said I wasn't going to swap anymore, but then I noticed how my ipod was actually wearing a baggy hand-me-down cozy! How sad! I also have a shuffle I can't find, but also needs a cozy (I assume a little old style shuffle would be ok in this? If not no worries :))

If not I might just sign up for the one, I have the video ipod (not the latest one, the one before)

How can you not name your ipod?!? Mine have been 'I couldn't live without...' 'Oooooooohhh' and 'It's so shiny!'

Oh, and i'm really sorry everyone, there is a chance that I will be too tired to pair people up tonight, I'd end pairing people up with themselves if I did it while I was half asleep. So if i'm wide awake which I probaby WILL be, then I will send partners! ;D

50 flash cards later and I am moving onto study for a different class AFTER I make dinner. I think when my husband gets home from work, I am leaving. I need to get out of the house and study for a while. My brain hurts. And to top off my day, my child decided that today was not a napping sort of day LOL Lovely :-D

As much as I'd like to, I probably won't get to start on this project until Tuesday. And then I will get it finished before Friday *Hopes* so I can spend next weekend studying for the REST of my midterms. *head desk*

Oh, and i'm really sorry everyone, there is a chance that I will be too tired to pair people up tonight, I'd end pairing people up with themselves if I did it while I was half asleep. So if i'm wide awake which I probaby WILL be, then I will send partners! ;D
hehe!  Thanks   :D  I can't wait to know who my partner is.
By the way, I am reply number 100  ;D

I wouldn't say that they aren't on topic  ;).  I think it's more like...  We are expressing ourselves so that our potential swap partners can get to know us better.  Or something  :D

I'm just procrastinating studying. Therefore I chat.

I am learning to crochet and knit. I sew a little. I scrapbook and make cards. I glue stuff. I write. I draw sometimes.

Cool   :)  Randomly "gluing stuff" sounds fun (though I don't think you meant taking some random object, dabbing on some glue, and sticking it to the wall).  I may do something related to that occasionaly  :D.  I knit, crochet, sew, embroider, draw a little, use superglue (which is a craft, in itself, when I don't get it on myself, and probbably a few other things.  I am learning how to make ATCs (that are creative, anyway.  I can't seem to make them out of the box).  Awesome.  Although I would love to say that I write, I can't write for my life  :D.

 (though I don't think you meant taking some random object, dabbing on some glue, and sticking it to the wall).

Wow. You have no clue how tempting that is. Especially considering it's my mom's wall. I'm trying to get to sleep so I can wake up early so I can get all my homework finished by noon. But she's making me upload pictures to facebook. How stupid is that? And of course we don't have Active X or whatever, so I have to upload it the slow way - only 5 pics at a time. Plus it randomly logs me out every-so-often, which makes me restart ^^;
Sorry :/ when I'm over tired and annoyed, I rant - -;

Back to the actual topic! XD
I mainly sew I guess (right now I'm making my friend a green dress - she's being Envy for halloween), but for a personal swap and a weekend swap I did fair amounts of painting (I have a lot of paint, I just don't really have the time to use it usually ^^; ). I like using elements of design and such - graphics, note cards, ATCs, scrapbooking, that kind of stuff.
I couldn't knit or crochet if my life depended on it... or at least I can't now XD Maybe in the future? But not any time soon! XD
And of course, I draw ^^

In the case of walls, yes I have glued things to them though not random objects LOL... and it has been a while... like about 8 years. I glued CD's to my wall while in high school and I am still hearing about that from my father who took them down after I moved out. Apparently some of the wall paper came with them  :D

mmmmm glue... no I don't glue stuff to walls...:P Though I do paint them... Like the time i painted blue and since the paint turned out to be a mess I ended up getting a round sponge and making lots and lots of circles on the walls... it seemed like it had blue chicken pox... :P
And when i finally got bored of that I bought some more paint, just really really pink, cos I never had a pink room... and painted all pink... :P a few months later I painted some flowers with a stencil I made... the funny thing was when we moved, and someone rented my house... they hated my room.... :P and we moved back 5 months later, and now i have a white room...... BOoooooooring.... :P

Aww...  Maybe you should repaint it.  I have been wanting to paint my room, but I can't bring myself to do it, because I will be painting over alot of stuff that my mom and I worked very hard on.  It is hard to type with a fat cat in your lap.   :D

I have... but only cause there's this insane technologic kid in my grade XD He buys peoples broken ipods for about $10 each, fixes them, and re-sells them for $50. Reciently he bought an iphone with his earnings, but here in Canada the phone plans for it will probably be over the top expensive, as there isn't really another item on the market here that it can compete with - -;

I basically know what I'm doing for one, I'm just waiting for measurements so I can get started.
As for the other, I'm digging a bit deeper to make sure I make something they'll like ^^

Post by: seeker83 on October 24, 2007 07:57:13 PM
I've got ideas, but nothing done yet.

The website i posted a few posts back has all the measurements of ipods as long as you know the generation and model.

Post by: MEshelltakeone on October 25, 2007 09:57:06 AM
I have one made, but it's just a prototype...I wanna make sure it fits, so im gonna make a model out of the dimensions before i go any further.

i have a total of 5 cozy ideas that my partner would love, but ideas are not always easily transferred into an actual product...so we will see what i end up with! ;D

Anyone else suffering from too many ideas syndrome?
I was  :D.  I decided to just start making something within my partner's color choices and motifs, and I figured that i could always make another one if I didn't like it, or if I thought I could do better.  I actually really liked that one, so I decided that I would use it  :D.  Good luck!  I can't wait to send, receive, and see the swap gallery for this.  It's so much fun!   :)

When I finished sewing I was thinking "Oh geez, I'd be surprised if this fit a first generation shuffle" and the nano slid right in - -;

I was highly tempted to add 2 or 3 stitches to the one im working on cause itr jsut seems too small, but I resiste dthe tuege cause i know that those 2 or 3 stitches will turn my snug little cozy in to a giant sac that will serve no purpose lol

3 I think lol.

I ended up subtracting one stitch from the gauge, so that I could do proper ribbing (just in case, one nver knows when ribbing will be useful lol). So gald I did cause I made a model and it fit perfectly!

3! I wonder if thats a record. imagine if we got paired together in all three, instead of just the one lol. Of the shipping costs we could ahve saved lol

Darnnnn. Oh well XD
This swap should cost me under $3 to send, and I wouldn't be able to send the cans in an envelope if I had to include the stocking in there too... but hey, at least this way we can see what all the other craftsters are capable of :D rather than just me and you! XD
I think the extreme would be in 5 swaps, partnered with them, and doing a personal swap too XD Highhhlyyy doubt that's ever happened though :/

and I'm making something for you as I type ;)

I;m sending internationally, so it will probably cost me closer to 10 bucks. first time ever were the shipping cost me more than the swap lol.

you tease! I'm not crafting for you right now, though I did last night. I worked on a project for psyche. Actually, I finished her big project. I've been working on this swap while typing lol I jsut finshed. all thatas left is the closure. I need to find something perfect.

So far I've finished decorating your cans and did one small craft-thing each. I have some larger-ish ideas in mind, but I haven't gotten around to actually getting to craft them XD There's a larger item that I really want to make you, but it's not chirstmas-related D: but I think you'd really like it ^^; I'm thinking of prehaps adjusting colours, or adding something small to it to make it more christmas-y...
ahha, I know, I'm such a swap tease ;)

Shipping internationally for the stocking? How much are you crafting for it?

I have to sew about 3 more lines, then I'll be finished both ipod cozys and ready to ship them off :D

I'm fine with non-christmas related projects. you're getting at least one non hanukkah project. I justified it by calling it a hanukkah present lol.

I'm sending internationally for this one, not the stocking swap. Gah! No way would I send internationally for that. Even the US was a stretch lol.

My only worry is the swap requirements... was it supposed to be 50% or 75% holiday-related goodies? ^^; (nevermind, I think it was only store-bought goods that there was a restriction on... )There're so many non-holiday related things I want to send! XD XD but I have some good ideas for holiday things too ;)
And psh. hanukkah 'presents' are more than welcome too ^^

Oooohh, okay XD I'm sending to the US in this swap... I think! XD
But... couldn't you use lettermail? Stick the ipod cozy(s) in an envelope ^^
http://www.canadapost.ca/personal/offerings/lettermail/int/rates-e.asp
I'm pretty sure it'd either be $3 or $6... but it might be un-naturally heavy ^^;

I'M DONE!!!   :D  I planned on mailing today, but I am a dork - Automated Postal Centers won't take international packages.   :-\

I hear you on the teeny tiny nano's - when I finished my nano cozy, I looked at it and said "no way will this fit!"

I over bought all sorts of supplies because I knew I would change my mind about every aspect at least three times while making it! Opps!

So far I've finished decorating your cans and did one small craft-thing each. I have some larger-ish ideas in mind, but I haven't gotten around to actually getting to craft them XD There's a larger item that I really want to make you, but it's not chirstmas-related D: but I think you'd really like it ^^; I'm thinking of prehaps adjusting colours, or adding something small to it to make it more christmas-y...
ahha, I know, I'm such a swap tease ;)

Shipping internationally for the stocking? How much are you crafting for it?

I have to sew about 3 more lines, then I'll be finished both ipod cozys and ready to ship them off :D

I'm fine with non-christmas related projects. you're getting at least one non hanukkah project. I justified it by calling it a hanukkah present lol.

I'm sending internationally for this one, not the stocking swap. Gah! No way would I send internationally for that. Even the US was a stretch lol.
hehe do you think we could try sticking to only discussing this swap? When people click on this topic I don't think that they are looking to read about all of the other completed items for a different swap ;)

I'm finished :D But totally didn't realize that sendouts are tomorrow XD I'll ship tonight if I can ^^ But I thought I'd be a bit earlier than only by a night ^^;

and sorry! I swear we're back on track now <3
I've just never had a partner that was in three swaps with me before XD I got a tad over-excited  ;)

Post by: seeker83 on November 06, 2007 01:14:59 PM
The photo is bigger than the video by quite a lot. My iPod can hold its breath and suck it in. If that doesn't work, I've got a Razr that would appreciate the cozy too :-D

I right now, I am working on a way to keep the iphone safer because a button doesn't seem substantial enough.

Yours will be going out tomorrow after school unless I can get the energy to take the tot out to the bus stop in the drizzle or my hubby brings the car home early, then it'll be tonight :)

I sent mine off to ShaynaYasha today :) I went through Postal Annex and he said he was having computer problems, so it might not get postmarked until tomorrow =/ I'm not sure how all that works though.

Post by: ShaynaYasha on November 08, 2007 03:42:00 AM
So, I was on my way to the post office yesterday & I had this "gut feeling", so I stopped at the new Apple Store that just opened & double checked my measurements.  OH NO!!!!  All the numbers on the internet were WAY OFF.  The iPhoto is so much thicker than antisipated, so I spent the better part of the evening in my shop, rebuilding & to make a LONG story short Seeker83's package is in the mail today.   :P


Title: Re: Ipod Cozy Swap (*Sign-ups CLOSED*; Sendouts: Nov.7 )
Post by: seeker83 on November 08, 2007 10:09:29 AM
lol no worries :)

I wish you'd have said something before though because I could have measured for you and given you the dimensions. I guess I should have done that anyway =(

I totally made a card to put in with yours shaynayasha, but then I got back in the car after they had taken my package and looked over on the seat and there it was, alone and unsent.

Wow! here I am thinking that half of the people in this swap flaked and I realize that we only have ONE flaker! It just turned out that a few people hadn't Pmed me , so I did a little investigating and found some posts that I must have missed saying that they had sent or received! We are now only waiting for 3 people to receive, 1 person to send (and I know that she is sending soon!), and one angel

UPDATE: i am in need of one swap angel! I know people have already offered but i am not going back to see who was first. Please PM me if you would like to angel. Title it , "Swap Angel reporting for duty"  :)
