 Details of swap:
 Do you love making Teesha Moore-style patches? Have you always admired them but haven't yet caught the TM bug? Well, this could be the swap for you!

In this round of the TM Patch Swap, you will be crafting for 1 or 2 partners (first time swappers will be limited to 1 partner) and from 1-3 patches (you and your partner should agree on the exact number).

Also, you will have the option of exchanging a TM Patch Supply kit with your partner (contents of kit may include: floss, fabric, embellishments {buttons, beads, ribbons, charms, etc}, poly-fil, etc.).

Let's keep this swap simple and limit it to the sending of patches and kits (if you love sending extra things, consider adding those in to a kit  ).

There are lots of inspirational patches from previous swaps, so check out some of the galleries here:

3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / One mans trash.... on: October 17, 2013 08:05:05 AM
I'm not sure what to call this but I would love to start a swap where participants have a pinterest (or photobucket or whatever) folder of individual supplies/items they want to get rid of (stuff they have on-hand or can make) and another folder of items/supplies they would like to get or have made for them.  Then all participants can go through each other's folders and basically barter for supplies or things they want made.  It's a way to get rid of supplies or crafts that you no longer want/need and get something you do want in return.  It's also a good way to trade items you got in swaps but maybe someone else would appreciate it more.  I'm not sure if that would be touchy or not, but I personally would rather things I made go to someone who really wants them, I wouldn't be offended at all if someone wasn't totally in love with something I made....I'm not even in love with EVERYTHING I have made to this point Wink.  

For example
I have a yard of fabric (everything labelled with description, yardage, etc) in my "trade" folder and a book cover in my "wish" folder....someone messages me that they will make me the book cover for the fabric.  I can accept if I think it's a fair trade or counteroffer, and once we come to an agreement the items are removed from my folders and the person posts something like "I'm trading (this) for (this) with watsonc7" on the main board.  There could be a two week send off deadline like in the ongoing swaps (and probably the same amount of claim limits?).  

I'm still kind of a swap newbie so I'm not sure how to run these things exactly so if someone would want to run it the first round with me as a co-organizer so I can learn that would be awesome....

What do y'all think?
4  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 88 ENTRIES / Mod Manicure --- A manicure case on: July 03, 2013 07:12:47 PM
Wow, the title was more difficult than making this project Smiley

This is my very first Craftster challenge woop woop.  It was a blast.   I knew pretty quick that I wanted to make a manicure roll up for my daughter.  We had a shopping spree at the Dollar store, we definitely walked out with more than the challenge limit, I had so many ideas on how to use each of the items!

So after picking the items I definitely wanted to use, I was on my way to sewing.

I ended up using 8 of the dollar items.  I also used a few bits of Velcro, 2 heart buttons and one square of dark purple felt from my own craft stash...I counted that toward the $2 I had remaining.

Here is my finished product:
I used 2 dish towels for inner and outer fabrics, I also sandwiched a nonslip rug underlay between them for extra padding.  I used green shoelaces as the closure.

I wanted the inside to be super functional so I decided to use a piece of dark purple felt as the nail painting mat.  The case is washable.....but I'm pretty sure nail polish is a beast to wash out, so a throw-away mat was the direction I wanted to go.  There is a little piece of Velcro under it holding the felt in place. I like the felt because once it gets all gunked up and dirty I can just cut another cheap piece of felt to replace it.  I used the pot holders as cushioned pockets to hold nail art and polishes, they seal shut with bits of Velcro.  I also found super cute heart and circle shaped body puff-rags that I just had to use!  My daughter has already used the green ones to take her nail polish off.  I also found a box of heart nail art and a crazy cute purple rabbit nail cleaning brush, my daughter is in love.

As soon as I showed it to my girl she immediately squealed, ran to get her polishes and immediately put her new manicure case to use.  She's my biggest fan!

This is my first official Craftster posting so I can't post pics just yet, only the links...hopefully I get this right!

Our daughter has tons of cousins so last year I decided to start sewing for them.  This was my first attempt at sewing from drawings, I had seen the idea all over the Internet and thought it would be a blast to try it out!
