1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Christmas Stocking Swap Round 14 - GALLERY on: December 12, 2018 08:14:52 AM
Yay! I am so glad the package arrived, Bugaboo1!

The ornaments our my second attempt at acrylic pouring. Cheesy The soap is a wool wash from my favorite company. It smells like campfire smores. you wouldnt think that would smell good but its so nom. Without smelling too sweet. The yarn was acid dyed by me. I was attempting indigo because you mentioned liking indigo blue. Its 100 grams of fingering weight...but I think this one works up to be a little plumper than fingering weight usually does.

I received!!

Such a lovely package Cheesy Thank you so much!!

This bag is amazing! I love it so much.

An amazing stocking

A cozy nightgown and adorable project bag. I love all of the unicorn details.

And all of the extras! Thank you so much!

I love the yarn SO much. I cant wait to make a hat and put it on my head. But first...all of the Christmas making. I hope you all are having the best holiday season. Hugs all around. Smiley

I think we would want to move quickly to avoid hardcore holiday gift crafting...Maybe start signups next Monday (10/15) and let that ride for a week until 10/22 Then 3 weeks to prepare a package just in case anyone needs to shop online for yarn. So a send by of 11/12 so everything has arrived and is (ideally) posted by Thanksgiving. But, I'm flexible.

I got the coolest things ever. I got a pillow case and wall hanging that we're hand made! And it came in a super cute cat bag that was filled with candy and other cute Halloween knick knacks!!

Wow! OMG...what is on the pillowcase and the wallhanging? That looks amazing, skatergirl1007!!

Hi! Anyone up for a magic yarn ball swap??

Just a couple of smalls in a nice ball of yarn with some fun notions and tiny things that your yarnie partner might love wrapped in? Im thinking about 3 crafted points and dividing between acrylic lovers and wool sock yarn lovers.

Perhaps we could pick a theme for our partner to work loosely around? (purple, Christmas, snarky, Star Trek...?) Anyone that might join me?

I received from Patty_o_furniture today and I am sooo spoiled! And apparently I got the trendiest trick or treat bag ever! Im so in style. Thank you!

First off she made me goodies...suckers and homemade marshmallows and chocolates!

And she sent a carved stamp set and a homemade bathbomb that smells just like orange cream heaven. And a pumpkin jello jugglers set...Amazing. Oh and stickers! Smiley and little lights!


And these coloring post cards from Harry Potter...right on to the coffee table for coloring.

And the trick or treat sign that she made!!! How did you do this in a weekend!

Did I say thank you already because Thank you. What a spoiling this was. I am deep into the holiday spirit now!!

I completely agree! His exposed pins twinkle like little stars. And he has quite the gleam in his eye. Amazing!

Oh yes, I had a whole imagined backstory for Soot. He's of the Clan NoSnow who live on Coal Mountain, where it never snows. They're very cranky and generally disgruntled at life, but particularly the naughty children who are ungrateful and get stocking coal. Ironically, both the source and the cause of their financial success. They make a killing in November selling coal to The Clauses.

Not widely know, NoSnows celebrate as well!  and Soots' little chest opens up to reveal a tiny watercolor Christmas tree. Because in their hearts, they still believe in the promise of the Season.

Soots' bases are Styrofoam balls - one cut flat on bottom, the other carved to fit the curve, painted black, and then covered in individually pinned black scalloped scales (to protect his soft middle in the mines). These were machine stitched and then cut. The pins catch the light, and I thought they looked like sparkly stars! His face is embroidered, and his beanie is just a a basic 2 rib knit, them reducing garter stitch, with trailing strings (he's no fan of poms). I cut a square in his chest, painted black, then inset the water color, and gave him a little latch.

I might have picures. I was basically thinking how to take something traditional and flip it a little dark!
