Details of swap:
So you like to make little stuffies? Then this is the swap for you. You are to craft one stuffie based on your partners likes and what is in their questionaire. The stuffie is not to be too big or too small. Unless you and your partner are into that. It is to be the perfect in between size. Again, it is up to you and your partner. Along with the stuffie, you are meant to make a bio. Be creative. Is the stuffie you made a reformed pirate? Maybe a diva or a soda junkie? Be creative and have fun. The stuffie can be made using whatever method and whatever materials.

Examples:
Enigma (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=257530.0)
Pinky (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=254572.0)

Ah! A stuffie swap! I am seriously considering signing up for this...only problem is that it coincides with the start of my 21 credit hour semester and I don't know yet how much free time I will have...ahh..can't decide. Feel free to attempt to talk me in..or out of it...lol. I suppose if I don't catch this one there should be more stuffie swaps..

Crafting is good for study breaks.  (Also, What possessed you to do 21 hours?) Peer pressure

Post by: mamarose22 on July 27, 2008 11:05:51 AM
August 9th seems so far away.  That's when signups close and we get partnered.  Am getting anxious.


Title: Re: Stuffie Swap 2 (Sign-ups: July 20 - August 9)(Send-outs: September 12)
Post by: hikeaddict on July 27, 2008 11:08:10 AM
You have a good point about crafting as study break..this is quite true. I am taking 21 hours because in my utter insanity, on the application deadline for study abroad I decided I couldn't do without my best friend all of second semester and signed up to study in Cambridge for a semester where they offer absolutely nothing that counts towards my bio/psych pre med program. Actually my peers all think I've flipped my lid :)

  See the block of red in the second post.  If you highlight it there are letters they say that our organizer is internet-less and that if you meet the req's you should consider yourself approved.

Yeah... I missed that, so I'm glad you pointed it out. I was starting to worry about our organizer. Now I'm not so worried. :)

I hope there's someone out there who likes amigurumi stuffies... because I'm not so good at sewing (metza-metza at hand sewing and have no idea how to work a machine).  ;D

so, guys.
i signed up, but am looking for a specific stuffie and, well, i'm not the greatest sewer at ALL.
so if my partner wouldn't be like.
RAWR.
if it's not absolutely AMAZING, that would be GREAT.
and not make request something SUPER hard?
i will definitely try my hardest though.
so it won't be like, half-hearted.

this is my first swap, i'm excited!

It is usually cheaper to buy stuffing at regular price and use the 40% off coupon at Michaels or ACMoore or Joannes, rather than buy it at sale.  When it is on sale it is usually less than 40% off.

My partner is a first timer too, and we live in the same city!!!

[[Not that I would, just for comparison.]]

I'm super excited, thanks!

you and your partner can decide to do more if you wish.
or you could make three small plushies.
the one is a guideline. a minimum.

I did some searching around for something to make LaurenMissing... stalked her Xanga and such things. She seems like a pretty creative/fun person, so I think I know just the pattern to use as a base point. I think she'll really enjoy what I have in mind. ::grins::

is it bad that i almost finished mine? i was really on top of things and finished alot today. and an "accesory"  but i still have a some things left to do. i had originally started another pattern but it was too hard so i went for something i'm more familiar with. plus i got to use some new eyes i found at hobby lobby. well i gotta go and figure out the rest of whats left.

Some of you ladies are so creative...you draw out your own patterns.  I usually rely on patterns.  I may be able to adjust/alter/modify it, but usually need the basics to start with.

i've already started sewing. i was going to do a "rough draft" with scrap fabric first but was too excited to start. it's hard to find a time and place to sew since i get fuzz and fur everywhere. lol. i'm glad my plans for this weekend changed because i wouldn't be done... i want to take pictures of the finished stuffie at the place i'm going to... not saying where but it's somewhere here in japan. lol. cryptic, i know, but i don't want to give what i'm making, or whatever, away. ;D

I feel like a total underachiever right now. I kinda sorta maybe know what I'm going to do, but I haven't picked out fabric yet, nor do I have a pattern. In fact, the only time I've ever used a pattern was when making a sock monkey  ;D I always expected to sort of plan-as-I-go without a pattern... All you people with your organization are killing me  :D

Although I have a good idea of what I am going to make, and all the materials for it, I probably won't be done until close to the deadline.  I have family time this weekend, as my sister and nephews are visiting from out of town, and I still have to finish up everything for another swap I am in before I can really sit down with my stuffie.  But I can't wait to get started and to find out what you all are making. :)

I can't believe we have a sender already.  That means we will have a gallery shortly.  I love the galleries.

Hi all!

I first want to say sorry for not being more active, I've been having a few issues at home.

I've 90% finished for this swap! Just got a little bit left to do and a bio. I'm debating two types of bio, but both will hopefully be interesting for my partner.

How are you guys doing bios? I'm having issues coming up with one, but the record of it style is almost decided.

Post by: mamarose22 on August 23, 2008 07:45:57 AM
I think, coming up with a suitable bio will take more time than crafting my stuffie.

I've got my bio written.
It's just making it into something memorable that's taking my time.

I just checked out a few pics and bios on the Little Visitor Swap.  I don't think we have to make such an extensive bio for our stuffies.  I think a bio on a little note card should be sufficient.  If somebody wishes to do more, fine.

Oi - what do I say?  There are 2 steps to creating a thing - there is the idea of the thing - of which the creation process takes  a LOooooong time, as I think and re-think and consider thigns in my mind.  Then there is the physical creation of the thing, which takes a much shorter time, but is the part that everyone is interested in.

Of those, part the first is nearly completed. 

Part the second will be done prior to the send-out date.

So ends my brief treatise on "how I'm doing in the swap"

Gosh I am almost done..As soon as I am ready I will mail these puppies soon...

Talking about Puppy...I just went thru 24H (almost) of craziness...My little dog ran away from my home as my roomate opened the door (she did not close the living room door, which is the safety barrier for the dog not to get right at the front door steps. My little Min pin can pass thru any gates!...I am not sure why, but my puppy snaps only when she sees my roommate...: (....After a hard day looking for the dog (walking the neighborhood for hours), posting signs, calling all the vets in town and the outskirts...I just received a call from one of the vets...The vet's daughter found my dog! YAYYAYAY.
I am sooo happy!!!! :D

unless i were to crochet...

I also have to start, but the good news is that I have the pattern and yarns picked out all ready so that's good. I also have been formulating an idea for how to craft the biography in my head, so even though I don't have a bio I know how I'll be doing it. :)

Oh... and I need to buy pipe cleaners I think... I have a bad feeling I might have ditched mine in a destash fest... I hope not!

I've more or less finished the stuffie itself. I keep having to beat my mum away from it though. She keeps running off with it, litterally. Now she's just agreed to help me jazz it up. She's helping with the bio too, because mum is a much ebtter bio maker than I. I'm still aware of her sneak-off-the-stuffie plans. I'll have to make her one or something for her birthday .

I wonder if i should give the stuffie some clothes... Mum suggested a waist-coat, and I want it to have a monocle, because it would just be too cool with one, i think.

Yey 100% done with the major stuffie (just have to iron his ears...  :o), and I've made a cool extra.  Tomorrows task is to make another extra and then the bio while Mr Loops is out, and then pack it all up to send on Monday hopefully, yey :D

I finally came up with a little bio/story about my stuffie, which was already finished.  I was going to send it off to mylikes on Saturday, but the post office which is usually open until 4:00 PM on Saturday, closed at 1:00 PM for the holiday weekend. I will mail it on Tuesday. 
I wasn't able to get my stuffie to participate in a photo shoot (she's very shy), so I hope mylikes will be able to. 
Did anyone receive yet?  I'm anxious to see the gallery.

My likes received my package but has been running in and out of town and hasn't had the opportunity of posting pictures just yet.  Unfortunately I didn't get pictures before mailing otherwise I would post it,  She did manage to ship my stuffie on Friday, so now it's just a question of time.  I can't wait.

Don't worry about it being too big.  The stuffy I made was at least 12" tall.

Okay so so so sorry for the delay in posting the bio, but here it is,

     "Nilea and Pordti are two aliens from the planet Letnap. They came to the planet Earth in search of friendship and fun, because the aliens that live on the planet Letnap are very boring and tend to just sleep all the time; it was a very narcoleptic society. Because Nilea and Pordti had become outcasts for their high levels of energy, nd their want for nothing but fun, the two decided to beam down to Earth where they heard that everyone was loving, fun and friendly.
      Nilea is of the Yee-Wot species on Letnap. She has two large feet and two standard-sized eyes. On her planet she was one of the fastest swimmers of the Yee-Wot. Her mom always knew that one day she would leave Letnap and so prepared for her life outside of their planet. She often was sent to other closer planets to experience their life and culture. Coming to Earth is a life long dream for Nilea.
      Pordti is Nilea's best friend (when you're the only two awake on your whole planet, you become pretty darn close). Pordti is from the Tefe-Reeth species. The Tefe-Reeth have three ball shaped feet, and get around by "scooching" from place to place (front foot and back feet spread, then come together at the front). Pordti has one large eye that takes up her entire face. Her talent is to observe as much as possible and she is very good at perception and interpretation of her surroundings. She is quick to adapt to new environments. She came to Earth because where ever Nilea goes- Pordti goes.
      Pordti and Nilea do not need food to survive. As you can see, they have no mouths. Rather, they survive by breathing through the small openings on their antenna balls, and various hairs and membranes take nutrients out of the elements in the air. They need very little to survive. They also communicate through their antenna, and so most communication with humans is through yes or no questions so that they may solely nod or shake their head. They are fluent in ALL of the languages of the Planet Earth.
      On their way to me, Pordti and Nilea decided they wanted to bring me a cupcake. Unfortunately, they did not bring an edible one. I told them they should keep it with them until they arrived at their final destination. While it can't be eaten, I think that it would probably make a great pincushion. I would have kept it myself as a reminder of Nilea and Pordti, but unfortunately I don't sew. :)
      Please enjoy your two new friends. I hope that they will bring you great joy, their quiet, wonderful, and I have enjoyed the time I've spent with them."

There was also a little word game:
Pordti - Tripod
Nilea - Alien
Letnap - Planet
Tefe-Reeth - Three feet
Yee-Wot - Two eye



AMAZING!!!!! =D Thank you so much!!!
