1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Craft Swaps / Re: Jar of Whimsies Halloween 2017 (signup 9/22 - 9/28; send by 10/14 on: Today at 04:42:26 AM
I can't wait to get started!!!!


LOL!  Pumpkin season is the best! 
I've been catching up on errands today and I found a couple of tiny Halloween goodies that may or may not find their way into a new home...just sayin' Wink

This swap sounds amazing!!!

Whatcha waiting for?  You know you can't resist adding some tiny Halloween awesomeness to your stash Wink

Questionnaire sent! Sounds like fun! Cheesy

I got you covered Cheesy

Is anyone else already trying to figure out what to use as a container for this swap? 
Oh, and I might have to dig through my craft stash tomorrow to see what I can set aside to include the container Cheesy

Thanks everyone!
It's really gratifying to make something that I can use everyday Smiley
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Two Wristlets for Fall 2017 on: September 22, 2017 03:30:08 AM
Instead of lugging a purse, sometimes all I really need is my phone, ID, cash and favourite tube of lip balm Roll Eyes
I've been searching for suitable wristlets to purchase...ones which are large enough to accommodate the size of my phone.
Nope, no luck.  On to Plan B! 
After digging through my stash of fabric scraps and drafting a couple of patterns, I came up with two wristlets.

The first one has a strap that is attached to a swivel hook.  The swivel hook clips onto the split key ring that is connected to the main body of the wristlet. 
In a pinch, I can remove the strap and throw the zip pouch into my regular purse.

The second one has a zip gusset in the back for my phone (for easy access). 
It is roomier than the first wristlet and can hold a few more items (if I need them). 

Thanks for checking them out Cheesy

This is a swap where you will fill a container (glass, plastic, wood, cardboard/paper, metal, fabric, whatever your heart desires Cheesy) with little trinkets, bits, and baubles you think your partner will love.  The more creative the better!
Requirements are as follows:

1. A decorated container filled with approximately 2 cups / 1 pint (by volume) of whimsies.
2. A minimum of 1 small crafted whimsy (if you're feeling extra crafty and wish to make and send more crafted whimsies, that's okay too!!).
3. The majority of items in the container should be Halloween themed or be of Halloween colors (black/orange/red/white/purple/green).  
    It's okay to include some non-Halloween items you think your partner would like, but let's try to send a bunch of Halloween goodies Smiley
Note: Extras (i.e. things outside the container) are optional - discuss with your partner.

I was thinking, for example...purple beads, orange buttons, black lace trim, etc. would all fall under the Halloween theme in terms of traditional Halloween colors be okay for inclusion in the container.  And of course, Halloween themed items (e.g. stickers and what have you) may come in a variety of colors Wink
