1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Introducing... Autumn Fae (my first poppet!!) WARNING: PIC HEAVY on: September 16, 2008 08:02:36 PM
First off, I have to thank ghilie for making and sharing this wonderful pattern! I just loved making her and have plans to make 3 more seasoned poppets soon! As well as many others in my head. My crafty side loves you, my wallet hates you. Wink  Grin

Introducing my first poppet - Autumn Fae! (I know, how original eh? The name wouldn't leave me until I named something that!) The only thing she is missing is her head piece/band - I haven't made that yet!

Here she is awaiting her clothing.

Once she received her long gown, she decided to go out for a walk and found a nice hut to sit and enjoy nature.

Then along came a human (my sister, Jess) and asked for a photo with Autumn Fae, as well as a photo with a super cute fluffy being (our dog, Chloee)!

After a short photoshoot, she decided to head home and relax on her deck...

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / quilted bird wall hanging - it's cooler than it sounds!! [5 imgs] on: July 07, 2006 06:04:06 PM
So this was one of the things that I made for the Winged Creatures Swap that I organized. I liked it so much I wanted to share with everyone. I hope this goes here.  Huh

This is made with material mostly. Some painted, some image transfer. I added some buttons and things to give it a little somethin' somethin'. This is one of my most favourite things I've made so far, I had a hard time giving it away! I have an idea in the works for a sea creature based one now.

Full view of it...

Small bird tag encased in clear vinyl...

Main img of the wall hanging...

Shot of one of the corners... felt leaves and white buttons

My "signature" on the back...

Whatcha guys think?! If you'd like to know anything specific please feel free to ask!

Details of swap:

Do you love birds/winged creatures? Then this swap is for you! Each person will make something that their partner likes with the bird of their preference. It could be a purse with birds appliqued or embroidered on, jewellery with birds or feathers, pillows, stuffies, notecards, clothes, art. Anything goes here people!

Please send something in the quality that you'd like to receive - we have a longer crafting period so you should be able to do a good job!  I would like to see people make at least 1 large/time consuming item with a few smaller/medium items thrown in, but please feel free to discuss it with your partner! Get to know your partner - don't be afraid, they can't bite. Wink

A note about feedback:
I WILL be giving feedback and will give NEGATIVE feedback if it's necessary. Please keep in contact with me and your partner. If you don't your feedback will reflect that. ALSO, please reply to this thread with something as simple as "I'm in!" as I will be making updates on this thread.

1. Stickers!

the wish for october was:
this is not really craft related but now i can't think of anything else, reasonable, i would like to receive. and since i am a total stickers addict i would like to receive cute sticker sheets. (something japanese or korean would be heaven  )
i thought about this and there's no need to send full sticker sheets, i think it's reasonable to ask this instead of full sticker sheets, i would just like them to be really cute  single stickers are also welcome



1. A hoodie with "Pretty Little Lightening Paw" on it. The person who was to make this for her, said she sent it but the DC # she gave us ended up being in Boston, totally not where she lives!

I had made this wish back in October or November, it's been so long I've forgot, it was picked, and after all this time it never ever arrived to me! So I'm wishing for it once again... A hoodie (zip-up preferrably or pullover) with the words "Pretty Little Lightning Paw" on the back. I think these are the prettiest words together, I even want to name a pet PLLP! A Silver Mt. Zion takes the credit though. They could be silkscreened, gocco'd, appliqued... I don't mind too much. I'm sort of going for that neighborhoodies.com feel. I'd make this for myself but I just plain don't have any me time (sadface) and I will send the BIGGEST THANK YOU EVER to anyone who is willing to make such a big wish. I wear a women's size Large (or an XL if it's one of the kind that fit tight or will shrink lots, cause I've got boobs girls!). I'd really love one that is NOT blue, black or grey (cause all my hoodies are those colors), but beggers can't be choosers. Ideally a bright red one would be SO cool, or grass green, something that is bright and noticeable. Hell, I'm thankful for anyone wanting to read this wish. Ha. Wink


If anyone can do either any of these wishes PLEASE PM ME and I will get you their information ASAP.

apandalee was supposed to receive:

1. Any Kind Of Artwork/Dorm Decoration with a Panda: I can't draw worth beans but I love Pandas. Big or small, whatever floats your boat =)

I like: Cute things, pandas, Meomi, rainbows, jewel tones, black and white, graffiti, city skylines
I dislike: Super goth, punk, and preppy things.



kategirl was supposed to receive a bag in this swap and nothing has arrived to her place yet - she said she'd love a replacement one or something different all together!

likes: red, black, pink w/ black or brown, silver, blue - anything sparkley! (like cut glass beads, glass rhinestones, etc) - fruit scents, citrus, vanilla, or anything pretty light - I would particuarly appreciate hand knit socks, a knitting needle roll, decorated pillow cases, or a shrug of some sort, but don't feel confined to those things, anything will be nice.  Smiley

dislikes: strong, earthy/flowery scents - lots of bright green, orange, or purple - I don't have pierced ears - I have lots of purses (but a messenger bag would be appreciated) and scarves already - I have a small apartment, so functional (rather than decorative) things would be great!


If anyone can do either any of these wishes PLEASE PM ME and I will get you their information ASAP.

10  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Unconditional Swapper Swap - OCTOBER on: October 01, 2005 01:46:22 PM

Swap name: Unconditional Swapper Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  Krysta (Organizers will change every month)
Sign-up date range: No closing date
Date to send item by: Must send out item within 2 weeks of picking a partner
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Heck No!!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Of course!
All ages allowed? Or 18+?  Sure, but make sure your parents are fine with it!
Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders" list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

For those of you who joined this swap in September, if:
  • You have been picked twice already in September then go ahead and post 3 new wishes if you want.
  • You have been picked only once, you have to post the same three wishes again in October and wait to be picked the second time as well. Make sure to highlight green the wish that has been fulfilled already.
  • You have not been picked even once; you can post the same list or a new one in October.

You must PM the organizer when you repost your list, so she knows that you have done so and can check it. PLEASE DO NOT post anything other than your wishlist and a little bit of info about you, any questions or comments can go here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=50691.0


  • Each person interested will post a list of maximum THREE items they want. (Try and list items that you cannot make, but would like to have). These items must be reasonable; it must not be ones that would cost someone a truckload of money to make for you!
  • Once you have given your three items good thought, reply to this thread and post your 3 wishes, along with any other information that will be helpful for those looking to craft for you. (Color preferences, style, size, design, etc)
  • Those coming along this thread will scroll and read all sign ups, and decide if they want to craft for someone. Those who sign up as well are free to craft for another.
  • The catch to this is you cannot expect anything in return for your efforts except THANK YOU!!!. That is why it's called an Unconditional swap. You can hope that someone else or maybe that same person would want to make you something as well and then craft for you. And knowing the great craftsters here, Im sure everyone will receive something.
  • Each month the organizer will change. All information of the swap will be transferred to the next organizer. An announcement will be posted about this change. This month (Oct. 1st to Oct. 31 its Krysta) From the first of every other month, a new organizer will be in charge.
  • Each person can be picked 2 TIMES! Means that only 2 people can send to someone. Within those 2 people, the person may receive all 3 items. I.e. "A" and "B" are sending to "X". A chooses to send 1 item off the list, while B chooses to send the other 2 items. Therefore fulfilling all 3 wishes of "X". Now, it is not necessary to fulfill all three 3 wishes..."A" could send just one item and "B" could choose to send one item thereby fulfilling two wishes on "X's" wish list.
  • When you post your wish list be sure to mention the country you are in on that post. For example:

I am in India.
Wish 1
Wish 2
Wish 3

  • When you have been picked twice, you will be in green. Once you have been picked twice your name will be crossed out in red on the list. You can be on the list again the next month, when the organizer changes.
  • The crossed out names can be back on the list once the organizer changes (Every month)
  • As soon as anyone picks a partner, you have to ship them, their stuff within 2 weeks.
  • If more than one person picks a person and wants to make them the same item, then the person who Pmed the organizer first will get preference to make that item.
  • It is not necessary but I would appreciate if you could PM me with the DC number or scan the receipt and email me a copy.
  • All in all this is sort of a good karma swap. Give unconditionally is your motto my fellow craftsters.
  • All regular swap rules do apply for this. All of you who sign up will be screened to see if you are eligible to join the swap. Including Newbies.
  • Positive and Negative feedback will be given for this swap. Your feedback will reflect the number of people you send to that month.

When you have been picked PLEASE crossout and change the colour of your post accordingly. If you need help with that, feel free to PM me
