Details of swap:

Do you have a “homeless” iPod/Music Media Player or Camera?  Are you constantly trying to find a way to keep it from getting scratched/mangled/damaged in your purse or bag?  If so, this swap is for you!

***This swap is not limited to just those who own an "iPod"... any Music Media Player is fine.  Just be sure to specify what type you have when completing the swap questionnaire!***

This swap is for all of you who are looking for a fun and convenient way to store your iPod or Camera.  I know I am on the go a lot, and I tend to just throw things into my bag and go.  I’ve checked in stores to find the perfect cozy and I just haven’t found anything I really want.
Partners will be chosen by drawing names out of a bowl and each of you will craft the item for each other and then send!!  That’s it!  (There is also an option on the sign up form for you to choose to make and receive both types of cozy)
I have allowed this swap to be international because of the low bulk of the cozys.  If you are uncomfortable sending outside of your country, please specify on the swap form.
Please post at least once a week in this thread to let me know you are still actively involved in the swap.

Yay!  Thanks for the resources dragonmama!  How long before you get your feedback??


Title: Re: iPod/Camera Cozy Swap
Post by: dragonmama on July 23, 2008 03:50:26 PM
You're welcome!

I can't send out until Friday because of financial reasons. :( But I'm sure my partner will be speedy with the feedback.

I _should_ have feedback before this swap signup closes.

This swap sounds fun!

I will probably sign up within the next few days.

Question: I would rather make an iPod cozy. Can we put fown a preference as to what we prefer making?

Post by: lilbandade on July 24, 2008 07:47:52 AM
what if, instead of an iPod, i have a Zune?
and, hypothetically, i wanted a cozy for that instead of an camera and lack of an iPod stops me from signing up?
would i be able to join with my Zune or must the camera get the new clothing?


Title: Re: iPod/Camera Cozy Swap (Sign Ups 7/23 - 7/30 ** Send Outs by 8/25)
Post by: JustCheeky on July 24, 2008 12:18:56 PM
Yay!

Yes, there is an option on the signup form where you can specify if you want to receive an iPod or a camera cozy.

You can knit, sew, crochet, felt.... whatever you feel comfortable doing!  Get crafty!

Yes... in hindsight I should have named it "Music Media Player/Camera Cozy Swap" .... there's a section on the signup form where you can specify model and dimensions of your player.  I am going right now to amend the form so that it includes all Music Media Players!

I am interested in joining! I've never done a swap before, so this would be my first swapping experience. I will probably sign up in a day or so. This is so exciting!

Post by: LyricalStar on July 24, 2008 07:40:08 PM
You know what I realized, (and no offence to anyone) basically all the swaps say to join you must have participated in 2+ swaps... how can I join any? I've never done one. It feels like I never will.


Title: Re: iPod/Camera Cozy Swap (Sign Ups 7/23 - 7/30 ** Send Outs by 8/25)
Post by: Hadassah on July 24, 2008 07:49:43 PM
This one doesn't. At least, I didn't see that it did... Most of them mean (I think) that you have to have participated in two+ swaps to be a swap organizer. Not to just participate.

EDIT: Just saw that part. MAN!  That really stinks... Oh well, I'll try one like this again when I complete two swaps.


Title: Re: iPod/Camera Cozy Swap (Sign Ups 7/23 - 7/30 ** Send Outs by 8/25)
Post by: lilbandade on July 24, 2008 08:48:51 PM
you have to have participated in 2 swaps to be an organizer.
you might be seeing that OR you might be seeing where it says to participate in 2-5 swaps at a time, you must have completed one swap already.
but you can join any swap without haveing been in one before.


and i am going to send my application in now that my Zune and I can be accepted for who we are.

Post by: JustCheeky on July 24, 2008 09:22:05 PM
You've got to start somewhere... there are a few rules that craftster has set for first time swappers.  You can participate in your first swap after completing the following guidelines:

I saw that some of you have never participated in a swap before....check this out:

The swap organizer will check your Profile to see that you meet all of these conditions:

•1• You need to have been a Craftster member for at least 1 month to participate in a swap.

•2• You need to have posted at least 15 times on Craftster to participate in a swap.

•3• If you have never swapped on Craftster before, you can only sign up for ONE swap to start out with. Then when you complete that swap and get Positive Feedback, you can sign up for more than one.

•4• No matter how many successful swaps you've been in, the limit to how many swaps you can be in at one time is FIVE. Five swaps is A LOT of swaps. We really don't recommend doing that many at once unless a couple of them are very quick and easy.

•5• If you've neglected to fulfill your part in a past swap, you're not allowed to join any more until you fulfill those obligations. Swap Organizers will check your feedback (located in your profile) before letting you join any swaps. If you have a negative, you will be turned away.

•6• You must be at least 13 in order to sign up for Craftster and therefore you must be at least 13 to participate in a swap.

These rules are for the protection of everyone. The majority of people who swap are totally trustworthy and conscientious swappers. But after years of having swaps on Craftster, these rules have come about in an effort to make sure it all goes as smoothly as possible.

I have been trying to update the swappers list as often as I receive your questionnaires.  If you have submitted a questionnaire and you are not on the swap list yet, don't worry - I will be caught up with everything by this evening!  I'm excited.. this is going to be a fun group, I can just feel it! :)

I'm afraid I'm going to have be a lurker for this swap. :( I can only sign up for one swap since it'll just be my second one... I'm already torn between two others too ack!

But if no one objects, I may use this as a kind of crochet- or sew-along for a cozy. :D

(unless someone wants to do a personal swap?)

Well Dragonmama, we'll be sad you won't be joining us.  You know that once you complete the first one, you may be involved in up to 5 swaps at a time, right?

Hello everyone!  As you all know, the deadline for sign-ups to this swap will end today, however, we still need one more participant so that we will have an even number of people for partners.  We may have a few more join today that I spoken with through PM, but if not, we may have to push the sign ups back one or two days until we at least get that last person.  I'll keep you all posted, as we still have the rest of the day.

I'm excited, are you?!

lol... doh!

It's the preggy brain, I tell ya. I've been thinking this whole time that you had to participate in two swaps before you could participate in up to five. I'm such a dork lol

But I still can't do this one because I haven't gotten feedback on my first. :(

Hi all!  I have a question and I wanted to get your opinions.  Dragonmama has been super pumped about this swap since I created the sign-ups.  She has been anxiously awaiting feedback from her first swap and it is expected any day (her package should arrive today or tomorrow).  Does anyone have any objections to extending the sign up to 8/2?  This will also give us a bit more time for any one who was wanting to join in.  If you have an oppostion to this, please PM me.  If you are in favor, please state it here!! Thanks for the cooperation!  I will also extend the send out date as well if you all need those two extra crafting days!

Thank you all for letting me join! I really appreciate your patience. :D Got my feedback and sent in my questionnaire!

So I guess we just need one more person to make it even?

I hope there will be another one of these swaps in the future. My husband bought me a new camera for mother's day that needs a cozy. However, I'm still on my first swap.

If you all don't mind, though, I'll be lurking - I want to see what you guys make!

YAY! THank you MyLIkes for joining and evening things out for us! I think this is going to be a really fun and creative swap!  :D
Before I was going to say, if needed, there was always the ole thing of A sends to B, B sends to C, and C sends to A, when there is an uneven amount of people, but yippie it looks like all is going well, JustCheeky!
How exciting we get partners soon!!! :o ;D
I am SOOO anxious to get crafty lol

WOOHOO! *does a happy dance*

I know we're getting partnered later but I'm curious what way these cozies are mostly going to be made. I've seen great knitted and crocheted ones, but also some rockin' sewn or quilted ones. Should be fun!

Post by: JustCheeky on August 02, 2008 09:37:22 AM
Yay!!  We are officially closed for sign ups!  I will be drawing names and partnering as soon as I get home (I'm at the spa right now - and my blackberry can only handle so much).  I'll be drawing partners at random (if two partners are chosen, and there is a conflict with allergens/allergies, etc... I will redraw).

If you requested to receive both an iPod/Music player cozy AND a camera cozy, you will be partnered with someone who wants both as well - and you both will make one of each. 

I will specify what you need to do in the PM I send you with your partner's questionnaire, just so everyone is clear!

I'm totally excited and I know you are all anxious about getting partners.  Give me just a bit and you'll have them!!

I'm such a nerd, but I think this will be really helpful. I made a mock-up of smittenheart's ipod so I am sure to get the cozy right!



Even if I did take the picture with it sideways lol

Ok y'all - I haven't heard from some of you since posting partners.  Can everyone who hasn't posted lately leaving a "hi" or something to let me know you are still active?!  Thanks!!

I did it!

I had our brand new baby boy at 2:05 this morning.

And I CAUGHT him MYSELF! ;D

Thank you all for the well wishes; it really couldn't have gone better. I'm feeling pretty darn good and Baby Caleb is doing great.

I posted about it all on my livejournal (check out my profile) if anyone is interested. :)

I haven't had a chance to get on the sewing machine! I'm so bummed that I haven't sent out yet. :(

It's just so hard to find a few minutes when both boys are asleep!

But I did start hand sewing what I can. I'm so desperate to craft... lol
