1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Craft Swaps / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 139 (July 2017) on: July 11, 2017 03:48:08 AM
I claim rscowtown for a coiled fabric bowl from her pinterest wish list. Due 7/25/17

Hi!  Im Alicia! Im a polymer chemist currently living in Pittsburgh, PA.  I live with my fiance and our two cats.

Likes:  lots of color! (especially blues), argyle, sciencey things (chemistry especially of course), using old, unloved things to make new, useful ones, wolves, daffodils, video games (I love Luigi and Pokemon), books (fantasy FTW), and tabletop RPGs (World of Darkness specifically)
 
Dislikes:  Super pink and cutesy or death/goth things.  Also, the color orange (its fine in small amounts, just dont generally like it as the main color).
 
No allergies here!

Crafts

 
Current Big Wish:
Pokemon-themed work out tops such as:

I have to do physical therapy for several hours each week, and I just get such a kick out of these.

Anything from my pinterest would be loved. Crafts for DJ is the board for my fiance - he has gotten some great things from Craftster in the past, and theyre always appreciated! (La Chapa/other yarnies - there is also a board called Amigurumi patterns that is technically for me, but contains more than I will ever make on my own - feel free to pick from there too!)

Homemade lotions/body butters- I have eczema, so anything with dry skin love would be great (please no soap though, full up on that at the moment!). 

Tie-dyed anything, especially clothing.  I would wear the crap out of just some basic tie dye t-shirts, especially the classic rainbow spiral design.

Alice in Wonderland themed kitchen towels or potholders.

Bowser amigurumi

Tree of life pendant

A shadowbox with a mash up of the Hufflepuff and Slytherin house crests that can be used to display our two wands - we got engaged at Universal Studios in front of Hogwarts, so they are special to us.

Resin pendants - no bugs, but just about anything else that Ive seen put in resin would be cool.  Magnets or pins would work too, instead of a pendant.

Flannel PJ pants - plaid would be extra awesome, and Id prefer drawstring over elastic waist.

Hip bag (the kind without the lower leg strap) - examples on pinterest

Polymer clay food charms - I think these are absolutely adorable.  I probably wouldnt wear them as jewelry, but would totally clip them to zippers/keychains/etc.

Stone bead bracelets (think the power beads from the 90s).  Very simple, but I love the weight to them.

Interesting minis that would fit in a 2x 2 box, based on any of my themes (or what you like to make).  I have a display shelf that has a lot of these small spaces free and Id love to fill it up!

Craft Supplies

 
Paint pens/PITT pens/small Sharpies - basically anything that you think will draw well over mixed media

Student grade mixed media or watercolor paper

Fabric- plain cuts large enough to make clothing (usually at least 2 yards) in things like wool, linen, nice cottons.  I have lots of crazy polyester prints, but I want to make some nice classic basics.  I dont really use quilting cottons.

Any garment sewing (not quilting) magazines, especially Threads and BurdaStyle/Burda World of Fashion - dont have to be current

Lighter weights of iron on interfacing (for clothes, not bags) - knit or woven. 

Serger thread - any colors - groups of 3 or 4 cones is best

Cotton cording to make coiled fabric bowls - these are my go-to for charity sewing, so I use up a lot of this stuff!

PDF patterns from SwoonSewing Patterns:  Amber, Blanche, Brooklyn, Maisie, Nora, Rosie, Sadie, Sandra, Stella

Thanks in advance to whoever makes my wish come true!!

So between ACL surgery and work crises, its taken me this long to get back into posting.  I have been crafting, though, so Ive got quite a backlog.  I think Im going to fully update my list and then post pictures in sections (maybe by craft?). 

First up are the amigurumi!  This is what I taught myself (with the help of books and a Craftsy class) while I was laid up for three weeks after my surgery.  Its been a long time since I started from scratch with a new craft, so it was very exciting to see my progress from the first little guy.



This is Swinub, a Pokemon requested by my BF.



The penguin and Earl N. Meyer got sent to two of my friends in grad school who are getting ready to defend soon.



This is a sleepytime doll that I made for my newest niece (born Feb 10).  I had already planned amis for her two older sisters (Peppa Pig and Doc McStuffins), but now that my sister has seen all the cool stuff you can make with crochet, shes already putting in orders for what I should make for their birthdays and Christmas. :p



I love all the cool projects, especially the Pokemon dice bags!  I feel like I'm seeing those bead chimes everywhere lately - what do you make the top part out of?

La Chapa, I'm so glad you and your son liked it - I had a blast making it.  I'd been saving those fabric pieces for "the perfect thing", so I was very happy to find a good home for them!  Cheesy

I also have delayed pics from the supplies Mlsocci74 sent me



I haven't been home enough to play with them, but I know I will use the heck out of the glimmer mists, and I love the dreamcatcher washi tape!  I even cut up the box and kept the pieces to use in mixed media because that was adorable too.

Thanks so much!

I'm in again - I just had a delay because I was gone for the 4th, and then I had to immediately turn around and travel for work.  But home now and ready to craft! Smiley

I thought I had put my sign up in a while ago, but maybe it didn't actually go through.  I'll PM rscowtown again.
