71  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Design a Dream Wallet Swap (SIGNUP CLOSED ; MAIL BY 03/17/06) on: February 14, 2006 07:11:14 PM
Swap name: Design a Dream Wallet Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: loves2experiment
Sign-up date range: 02/14/06 02/24/06
Date to send items by: March 17, 2006


Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Nope.

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Absolutely!

All ages allowed? Yes (Parental consent required for those under 16!)

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:
Its simple.  The goal of this swap is to create the perfect wallet for your swap partner!  In return, you shall receive the dream wallet you requested!  Intrigued?  Read on!  Cheesy


STEP 1: Fill out the swap questionnaire (dont forget to include as many details as possible!!!) and send it to the swap organizer (that would be me, loves2experiment).

STEP 2: Sit back and relax.  Or not.  If youre feeling antsy, or if you need inspiration, check out the various wallet tutorials (as documented by jMi) by clicking on the following link:

     https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69911.0

STEP 3: When you receive your partners information, read the answers to his/her questionnaire.  Read it again.  Remember, your goal to create the perfect wallet (per your partners specifications).  It might not be a bad idea to pm your partner just to say hi, or to clarify any doubts you might have about his/her request. 

STEP 4: Now, the real fun begins!  Get to work and make your partner proud!  Feel free to pm your partner with more questions as you craft.  Its important to communicate!!!  If you have a brilliant idea but youre not sure if your partner would agree about that, check.  Better safe than sorry, no? 

STEP 5: When you mail your package, dont forget about the delivery confirmation!  You need to send out your creation no later than 17 March, 2006 (Friday)!  Im going to be pretty firm about observing this deadline.  However, I also understand that life happens.  If you have a good reason for missing the deadline, please contact your partner and myself via pm as soon as possible!  If you are unreasonably (or unaccountably) late in sending out your creation, it might be noted in your feedback Sad             

STEP 6: Wait with bated breath for your dream wallet.  When you receive it, dont forget to post pictures in the swap gallery (link will be provided at a later time) so that the rest of us can gush about all the fabulous wallets (and talented crafters Wink).

72  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / A 1/2 Dozen of Fat Quarters Swap? on: February 10, 2006 08:08:14 PM
Recently, I rummaged through my fabric stash to find some fun and funky fabric pieces to send to one of my swap partners (ref:. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77174.30).  As I did this, I thought it would be grand if someone would send me 6 fat quarters and I do the same in return.  This would be a great way to de-stash your existing fabric collection and receive some new fabric pieces.  Or in my case, I'd probably purchase six 1/2 yard pieces, cut the 1/2 yard pieces into fat quarters, send out a 1/2 dozen of fat quarters to my partner and add the remaining fat quarters to my fabric stash  Roll Eyes
 
So, who's up for a quick swap of fat quarters? 
73  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / A Wallet Swap? (ref. TUTORIAL: SUPER CUTE WALLET!) on: January 12, 2006 05:03:43 AM
This stems from a recent discussion about wallets.  I love hdoglovesyou's tutorial for making a 'super cute wallet'.  For those of you who have missed out on the wallet tutorial, check out all the awesome wallets that have been crafted:

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=20925.0

Is there any interest in doing a wallet swap, based on the wallet design in hdoglovesyou's tutorial?  Obviously, slight modifications to the original design would be acceptable.  If you read (or have read) the entire thread, you'll see that there have been all sorts of add-on features (buttons, magnetic snaps, coin purse alteration, etc.) made by various crafters. 

For this swap, participants could fill out a questionnaire indicating their favourite features in a wallet and folks would be paired up accordingly.  That way, everyone makes and receives a wallet that they would love and use.

I'll be glad to organize if there's sufficient interest in this swap Smiley

75  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Target Yarn...now 25 cents each! on: November 03, 2005 03:27:01 PM
Goodgrief.  I stopped by Target after work this evening for some cleaning supplies and what do I see?  Their $1 yarn is now 4 for a buck!  Can't beat that!  I bought about 50 skeins of yarn for less than $15 bucks.  Did anyone else get any?
76  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Tiny crochet hook...and a dozen of crochet stitch markers! on: October 28, 2005 09:33:10 PM
Okay, it's actually a baker's dozen of crochet stitch markers.  I made this for a swap, but I thought I'd share it with everybody else because my swap partner has received the stitch markers and used the tiny crochet hook!?!  On with the pictures...



If you like Rothko's work, well, these are miniatures of Rothko-inspired art.  I used shrinky dink sheets and drew the images with coloured pencils.



Went a tad wire happy with blue glass beads!




Yep, that's the crochet hook in question.  Just how tiny is it?  Well, this is what my swap partner did with the crochet hook!

78  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Hello Kitty (Sanrio) or Tare Panda (San-X) Swap? on: October 17, 2005 04:24:12 PM
Hi!  Check out the following links for examples of awesome crafted items which feature Sanrio and/or San-X characters:


https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=46081.0

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=29408.0


I was bummed that I missed out on both these swaps Sad  Hence, I was wondering if there is sufficient interest to do another Sanrio and San-X swap.  I would be willing to organize this swap if there are folks who are interested!  If this swap doesn't happen, I would still be interested in swapping with just one other person Wink

79  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tare Panda Purse - Part II of Simplicity 4490 Sewalong on: October 06, 2005 07:27:54 PM
My attempt to sew pattern C from Simplicity 4490 was not a rousing success...mostly because I have a problem with following instructions  Sad  Oh, and I also used the wrong interfacing material Roll Eyes  Here's the link to what started this madness:

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=53187.0

Sucker that I am, I was persuaded by Miss_michelle to try again.  This is my attempt on pattern D from Simplicity 4490!

I didn't have time to shop for fabric, but I did find this lovely thing in my fabric stash:



Basically, pattern D is a smaller version of pattern C.  Here's what I came up with:

 

I decided not to do the ribbon ties because I don't have the patience for ribbon ties.  What I did need, was a pocket for the little bits and pieces that get thrown in my purses:



Okay, I'm happier with my 2nd attempt, but the purse still needs a little tweaking before I can use it.  So here's a question for you (that is if you're still reading this!):

Since I decided not to do the ties, the middle portion of the purse tends to flop (even though I used the stiffest non-felt interfacing I could find).  Any suggestions on how to remedy this?!?


80  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Are you a fan of Miffy (the bunny)? on: September 18, 2005 06:03:41 PM
Well, I simply adore Miffy!  If you can believe it, Miffy turned 50 this year (yeah, she looks dang good for 50!) and I decided that I had to make myself something to commemorate her birthday.  I started playing with felt scraps and made an applique of Miffy.  Next thing I knew, I made a black corduroy tote for the applique.  Goodgrief.  Anyhow, here's the tote:

     

And a detailed shot of the applique:



Of course, I needed something outrageously funky for the lining to balance the somber black corduroy:



Well, happy 50th, Miffy!  Thanks for all the good memories!
