- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:

The idea is to make one tiny craft item.  It should be physically small (miniatures are encouraged) and should be something that you can craft with a high level of skill.  Even if it is a fairly simple/easy item for you to make, please embellish or perfect it so that it best represents your skill.  (For example, if you wish to make a coin purse, I encourage you to embroider, add beading, or take other steps to make it a really special piece.)

You will receive only one partner.  You may only send that partner ONE tiny craft - "extras" are not allowed in this swap.  All items should be 4"x4" or smaller.  The idea behind this swap is to give you a simple, low-pressure craft swap that won't stress you out or cost a lot to ship.

How do you know if your idea is "tiny?"  Examples:  A coin purse is tiny; a clutch purse is not.  A pair of earrings is tiny; a necklace, earrings, and bracelet set is not.  A trinket box is tiny; a pencil box is not.  An ATC (artist trading card) is tiny; a full-size drawing is not.  (If you're not sure if your idea qualifies as "tiny," ask me!)

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, SEND YOUR INFO TO THE ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND DON"T REPLY WITH IT HERE.

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Craftster Username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?:
What craft skills can you use to make a high quality tiny item (ie.. knit, crochet, sew, quilt, shrine making etc..) :
What craft skills would you love your tiny item to be made with (list as many as you'd really appreciate):
What kind of tiny things would you like to receive? (this is just a guideline) :
What are you favorite colors / motifs / styles:
What else would you like to tell you partner?  (Please be sure to include any restrictions, such as no animal byproducts, religious symbol preferences, etc.)

A few other things to follow:

1.   Please post on this thread. A simple I'm in! or whatever will suffice. This is so I'm certain you get all messages.

2.   Please put OTT 10 in the title of all PM's

3.   A DC# is not required since the packages are very small but it is still encouraged if mailing to your same
     country.  In all cases, please save your receipt and be prepared to show me a copy if there are problems with
      with your package arriving in a timely fashion


4.   I'm hoping that no one will send late but, if closer to send out date, you know you are going to be late, you MUST
      inform me and your partner.

5.   This is how I plan to give feedback:

            If you send on time and follow the guildelines, I will give you a "Good Swapper"
            If you send late (with a good reason) but communicate, I will give you "Sent late but communicated"
            If you send late but don't communicate and the package actually arrives at it's destination,
               I will give you "Sent late and didn't communicate"
            If you flake (and I don't expect any flakers) you will be given "Negative"

Just gotta ask - did you use a traditional hook and, if so, what size?

one question though, if the pattern doesnt specify, how do i know if i am supposed to stitch into the first stitch after the turning chain or not?

I can't stand when patterns don't say it but, for me, I use this 'rule of thumb' - if I'm crocheting in dc and it says to do a ch 3 at the beginning of the round then I count that as the first dc and skip the first stich on the last round, otherwise if it says to just ch 1 or ch 2, I don't count them as the first stitch - hope that's not too confusing  Grin

I haven't sewn the 4 blocks together yet.

Oops, I thought 4 small blocks made up that large block (I thought I could see the seams) but I guess I was wrong  Grin

Keep up the great work!

Great job!

I made Piglet (and I'm thinking it's from the same pattern book) but I made him in thread so he's much smaller than your Pooh.  I'd love to make Tigger and Eeyore someday  Smiley

Yesterday I received these wonderful beads and gold findings from la_chrystelle.



Thanks for this great addition to my beading supplies!

RonnieCat, I wasn't sure if I should answer you here or though a PM but hopefully pibbgirl won't read your message so she won't know what we are talking about.  I'd say YES to your first question  Grin

Great colors!  Took me a few minutes to see how there were 4 blocks in that picture but I now see it!  Are you going to keep going and make the whole quilt?

And some pretty beads that were in the worl'd hardest container to open.
http://sewpixie.tinfoildreams.com/images/swaps/ows17_gagavai_8.jpg

That looks like the container from a Kinder Surprise toy and they are the hardest things in the world to open - not sure why they would do that in a kid's 'thing' but they do!

5350  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Working behind ch? on: January 07, 2007 01:23:49 PM
That's a hard one to answer without actually seeing it but after reading over the pattern and looking at the picture, this is what I think it means:

ROW 3: 2 sc in first st *working behind ch sp 3sc in each sc across to last sc, 2 sc in last st, ch 1 turn

After you have turned and put your 2 sc in the first stitch, skip the ch 2 and make your 3 sc in the next sc but make sure that the chain 2 from row 2 stays at the front of your work and doesn't slip to the back (thus you are now working behind the chains), skip the next hdc and ch 2 and work another 3 sc in the next sc and continue across in this manner - I'm thinking it is supposed to look ruffly.
