Sammys package never made it near Anne, and was returned. We found an angel to send to Anne, which happened to be someone who she was in a private swap with, and she sent the 2 swaps together. Canada to Germany so we are just waiting for the package to arrive then this swap will be finished Smiley

is there someone who would craft for a swapper in Germany for a recent OWS round? Her claimant sent something Jarith to her but somehow the post office over there got the package at a city hundreds of miles away from her, and returned it to the US saying "refused" which it was not.  Our dear swapper Anne is out a package, the sender is out her postage, so we need an angel.

Might that angel be you? please PM me and we can get the ball rolling. Many thanks!

First up for grabs is Summer..... here is her info below:

Allergies/etc: I'm allergic to most animals with fur, and wool as well, but that's not a huge deal unless it's something that's going to be against or near my skin.  I don't have an actual allergy to cigarette smoke, but the smell of it does make me really ill.  And I have some sensory processing issues that make some super-soft-plush-ish synthetic fabrics like fleece and minky feel slimy/awful to me, so please avoid those if you possibly can.

My Pinterest is at https://www.pinterest.com/ravenclawmermaid
I have a board for the wish swap, and a regular wishlist board that has a few craft supplies on it.  And there are bunches of other boards of things I'm interested in, too, so stalk away! Smiley

My favorite color is pink (not baby pink and not neon, but pretty much all other shades), and my next favorite is teal.  For metallic things, I like silver toned things better than gold toned things if there's an option.

Crafted items:
1. A drawstring backpack or a small purse backpack,  around the size of a piece of printer paper. Preferably with a pocket on the outside for my iphone 8, which is in a case but not a huge one. Needs to be deep enough that the phone won't slip right out if I bend over or something.  If you're feeling enthusiastic about pockets, ones for a pen and my sunglasses/glasses on the inside would be a happy bonus. Smiley
2. Hoopla!  8 inch is probably the biggest I can find space for on my walls, and any size all the way down to tiny would be much loved.
3. I'm a Ravenclaw and love Ravenclaw themed things.  I also love Hermione, Neville, Luna, Newt Scamander, and Queenie (and Queenie and Jacob Smiley ).  Also various magical creatures.
4. Disney is my jam, especially: vintage Disneyland, Walt, the original Mickey Mouse Club, Dory!, Mary Poppins, Cinderella (original and live action), Minnie Mouse, Snow White, Lilo, all of the emotions from Inside Out (Sadness is probably my favorite)
5. Other things I'm into: mermaids, typewriters, Wonder Woman, tiaras, black standard poodles like mine. Smiley
6. Little dolls or clay figures or such that I can put on the narrow ledge that runs along the wall, in any theme I might like.
7. I have one retiring service dog (Murry), and one service dog in training (Luna). Toys/bandanas/other fun dog things would be great! One note, Luna is still in the chewing stage, so her toys need to be a little durable.  She's not hardcore, it just needs to be able to outlast her until I notice it's getting too chewed to be safe.
8. A wrist pin cushion with a fabric band and velcro fastening to make it adjustable.  (Sorry, I know that's specific about the wrist band – another sensory processing thing.)
9. A thread catcher – man I need one of these!
10. A needle book or some other way of keeping my hand and machine sewing needles, preferably with some kind of blank labels on each “page” so that for the machine needles I can write what kind of needles are on that page? (or in that compartment, or whatever way the thing is organized.)   Not sure how that would be done, but I'm not skilled enough yet to be able to recognize which kind of machine needle is which.
11. Pattern weights
12. Zipper pouches, like a pencil pouch.  I can always find a use for these. Smiley
14. My spouse loves bats, something cool for her would be great.
15. A padded carrier with handles and a zipper closure for my Alphasmart Neo2 would be so great! A pocket for the charging cord would be handy, too.  The Neo's dimensions are 12.4 x 1.8 x 9.8 inches, and you could also google Alphasmart Neo if you want to see what they look like or anything. Smiley
16. I have an American Girl doll who has no Ravenclaw gear.  It's very sad!

Supply items:
Used but still nice is totally cool with me. Smiley
1. the kind of mini embroidery hoops that can be used to turn miniature embroidery pieces into pendants.  (Hope that makes sense.  I'm not sure whether there's a particular name for them.)
2. I love washi tape and stickers! 
3. Zippers, double-fold bias tape, trims, other useful notions.
4. A bodkin – pulling drawstrings and elastic through casings drives me bonkers!
5. The kind of belt buckle that goes with elastic to make the belt.  I have no idea of whether there might be an actual name for these, and I'm sure my explanation is not going to be super great, buuuut hopefully someone will understand.  Usually you sort of twist them to put them together. Maybe I can find a link to one to put here as an example.  I'm so helpful! Tongue
6. I love vintage sewing books. Smiley
7. If you happen to have a good (I just mean works well for sewing purposes, not meaning expensive) iron with an auto shut off hanging around that you don't know what to do with, it's on my mental list of things I need to buy.  I have memory problems and have a couple of times left my iron on for days at a time without realizing. Not really the safest!
8. Elastic thread – I want to try elasticized smocking, but I'm a little intimidated. Maybe having the thread on hand would nudge me into actually giving it a try.
9. A pressing ham and seam roll
10. if gift cards are more your thing, I often get craft/sewing supplies from Etsy and Amazon when online, and JoAnn fabrics locally.  Craftsy funds are always great, too, and sometime I'd like to try ordering from fabric.com.
11. Some small scissors/snips for cutting threads at the sewing machine.
12. A needle minder for when I do hand embroidery
13. Fabric you think I might like – if I get a chance I'll make a Pinterest board for fabrics I like so you can kind of get a feel for what sorts I like.  But I like a variety of patterns and such.  I mostly use quilting or apparel cotton, and I'm learning to use stretch fabric.  I keep meaning to make myself a tiered cotton petticoat and then just not buying the fabric, so if you've got a few yards of white cotton lying around that you don't want, I'd certainly take that. Smiley
14. I'm starting to tinker a little with making things from polymer clay, so clay or tools or anything for that would be fun.
15. Colored pens and markers for using in my bullet journal and on craft projects.

I hope that gives you some ideas!
