41  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Hermoine Doll on: August 12, 2015 07:51:56 PM
Hi there!  So I participated in the One Awesome Harry Potter Thing (OAHPT) - Round 2 Swap.  I was partnered with the awesome elliot_anne and we both have toddlers.  We decided to each make something for the other's girl.  I decided to make her a doll.  I used this wonderful pattern and tutorial to make her:  http://www.makeit-loveit.com/2013/02/girl-boy-fabric-dolls-pattern-pieces-included.html

Her hair is fleece, because I wanted it to be soft and cuddly.  Her face was embroidered.

I sewed on ribbon to give her some Griffindor colors, but sadly I did it a little low and it gets covered up by the skirt.  Oh well!  Her scarf is made of felt strips sewn together.  I love how she turned out.  Baby bean will definitely be getting one for her birthday!  ^_^

Thanks for looking!  Smiley

*Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join this swap!  Sign-ups are open all month--YAY!  PM me the above questionnaire to get started, and please wait to be accepted into the swap before making any claims. **Please make sure you are not late or flakey in any of your other swaps, and that you have good communication.** This is a super-uber-amazingly-stupendous swap, So Have Fun!  


Claims are made throughout the month.  You have two weeks from the time you make a claim to send that claim.

You can make as many (or as few, as little as 1) claims as you want throughout the month as long as you never go over your allowed amount of outstanding claims. (An outstanding claim is a card that has not been received; when that card is received your number of outstanding claims goes down leaving you open to bring it back up to 7 or 10.)

Posting pictures of received ATCs is required for this swap.


1. Claims are made using the following procedure:

Person A (the swap organizer) will begin the swap by posting a list of themes in this swap thread.
Person B will choose a theme from one of A's themes and make a claim by posting his/her own list (see below for formatting of post).
Person C will make a claim on one of B's themes and post his/her own list.
Person D will make a claim on one of C's themes and post his/her own list etc...
This continues through the end of the month, when the swap organizer makes the final claim and closes out the claiming part of the swap.

2. How many claims can be made by each individual:

The number of claims each person is allowed depends on the following criteria:
*Friends of Craftster: 10 claims
*Those who aren't Friends of Craftster: 7 claims
*First time swappers (whether Friends of Craftster or not): 1 claim.  Once the initial claim has been sent, and its new owner has reported it received, the first time swapper is free to make more claims, either 7 or 10 dependent on being an FOC or not.

3. How to make a claim:

A claim post should include the following information:
1. The theme you are choosing and who youre sending it to.
2. Statistical info about your current swap claims status:
Claims = Claims currently outstanding (ie., how many not yet received by their new owners.) (This number goes down each time a claim is received, and up each time you make a claim.)
Sent = anything currently in the mail.
Received = the cards received by the people you've sent them to.
3. Your location.
4. Your personal preferences.
5. Your list of themes


I claim GenericFabulosaSwapper for heffalumps/weasels ATC.  

3 claims, 2 sent, 1 received

I live in Massachusetts, USA.  I would prefer not to receive anything violent, political, or religious.  

My themes are:
1)   Spring Flowers
2)   Dancing in the Rain
3)   Naughty Spoons
4)   Inspiring Quotes
5)   Your Favorite Medium

1. Send a personal message to the person you have claimed and request their address.
2. You have 2 weeks to complete each card, and have it in the mail to its new owner.  

1. Please PM the organizer when you send or receive a card.  (It's also good to notify the person you received from or are sending to.)  
2.  Please include one of these at the title of the message: August ATC Swap--Sent or August ATC Swap--Received (Be sure to include the month, since I generally run multiple months at a time)
3.  Be sure and include (1) the "send by" date, as well as (2) the theme and (3)who sent it to (4)whom, in each message to the ATC swap organizer, when you're referring to sent or received ATCs.  (That's four juicy pieces of important information that make my life as a swap organizer OH so easy!) Easy as pie!

For example, you could use this format:
I sent some ATCs today!  

MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> YowzaSwapper (fantasmic theme)

MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> WowwieSwapsper (stupendous theme)
MeCraftsterMemberBloop -->WooHooYeeHawSwapper 07 (yet another fascinating theme)


This lets the organizer easily access the swap info, so it can be updated.  

It is OH so important to post pictures of the amazing cards you receive!  This is the best way in the world to let it be known how special it is that you've received a wonderful treasure of someone else's creativity!  

Please post pictures/scans of your received cards in the swap gallery (or make arrangements with your partner to do so).

Positive feedback will be given when all of the cards you sent have been received.   Good communication is always cool!  And be sure and post those pictures in the swap gallery!

If you have any questions please post them in the discussion thread or PM the organizer, jillybeans.  This thread is specifically for claims only.
43  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Sesame Street Themed Painted Toddler Shoes! on: July 14, 2015 10:06:54 AM
Its funny how as I am typing this there is Sesame Street playing in the background.  My daughter loves seeing all the Sesame Street themed shoes though not as happy to see them leave.  These are for a mommy friend who wanted a few of her daughter's favorite characters on a pair of shoes for her birthday.  They are a tan canvas toddler sized shoe painted with Tulip soft fabric paint.

Thanks for looking!

46  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Toddler Sports Painted Shoes! (Lots of pictures!) (Updated 8/13/15 & 9/9/15) on: July 14, 2015 09:53:10 AM
I've been doing a lot of shoes lately, but a common theme has been sports teams shoes!  So, I thought I would lump a bunch together instead of making a post for each of them!  Each were a toddler sized tan or black canvas shoe painted with Tulip soft fabric paint and brushes.

First up, a mash up!  This mommy wanted one shoe for her favorite football team (Steelers) and for her husband's (Seahawks).  Being that I live in WA, I was all for the Seahawks side.  My dad thought the shoes were kinda sacrilege.  

Next is a pair of baseball shoes!  These are San Fransisco Giants themed shoes, which are the second pair of this theme that I've done.  That same mommy wanted a pair for a friend's kid.

Next are a few pairs of Seattle Seahawks shoes, naturally.  ^_^

I have a pair of Dallas Cowboy shoes that I finished yesterday that I will add to this post once I get them photographed.  ^_^

Thanks for looking!

Update: (more shoes!!)

UPDATE: Here is another pair!  Giants/Eagles themed toddler shoes:

47  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Teeny Painted Crotch Rocket Shoes! on: July 14, 2015 09:43:03 AM
A mommy in my facebook group wanted a pair of shoes for a friend's baby who loved crotch rockets.  It was definitely something new!  lol!  They are so teeney, at a size 2, which is the smallest these shoes come in.  Love doing the itty bitty shoes!  They were a plain black canvas baby shoe that I painted with Tulip soft fabric paints and brushes.

Thanks for looking!
48  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / A couple more pairs of Elmo painted shoes! on: July 14, 2015 09:38:46 AM
Elmo is very popular amongst the toddlers in my mommy group.  Smiley  I should know, my own daughter loves him!  (though she doesn't yet own a pair of Elmo shoes!  Maybe someday!  lol!)  These were a tan canvas toddler sized shoe painted with Tulip soft fabric paint and brushes.

And another pair for a girl!

49  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Felt S'more Play Set on: July 13, 2015 04:34:14 PM

My niece requested a s'more set for her birthday this year.  So, here is what I came up with!  There are enough pieces to make 6 complete s'more sets with 1 marshmallow, 1 chocolate, and 2 graham crackers each.

It was actually super simple to make and only took me a couple hours to make (well, I do have a toddler to keep up with! ^_^).  Each graham had two 3" square pieces sewn together, and the chocolate had 3 3" square layers.  They were top stitched with brown thread on the sewing machine.  For the marshmallow I cut 3.45" squares and then cut them into circles, sewed them together leaving an opening to turn them, turned them right side out with the seams on the inside, stuffed them to my liking, and hand stitched with closed.

After all the pieces were done I found a box to store it all in and mod podged on some pretty paper with a sign on top.

Thanks for looking!
