21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Unexpected dyeing result = grey top on: December 25, 2007 03:13:14 AM
I made this top about a year ago. I used a pattern from Suuri Ksitylehti -magazine, but made a more simple version. I left out lining and added straps.
My granny gave me the fabric. It was white, so I dyed it before I could use it. I tried to dye it black, but apparently there are some artificial fibres used in the fabric so it turned out grey. I think the fabric is now nicer than it would be if it were completely black.
I have also made the black skirt I'm wearing. It's a circle skirt, made with the tutorial I found on Craftster.

The top.
22  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / European/International Silly Santa White Elephant Swap on: December 15, 2007 04:34:04 AM
I was reading the U.S. Silly Santa White Elephant swap thread and it sounds like fun. Would people be interested in a round that would allow also let craftsters outside U.S.A. to join? It could be limited to Europeans or it could be open to people all over the world. I was thinking that sign-ups could start maybe in January.

Btw, why is it called Silly Santa White Elephant?
23  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Gifts for my friends and family Wishlist swap? on: November 13, 2007 03:00:26 AM
I know many (or at least some) Craftsters would like to give handmade gifts (Christmas, Birthday or else), but don't have time, skills or supplies for them.

So how about a swap. I'm thinking a wishlist swap, every participant would write a list of gifts they'd like to give and after that start picking gifts to make from other people's lists.

I'm willing to organize or co-organize.

27  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / May 2007 Birthday Swap (SIGNUPS 05/02/07-05/31/07) *CLOSED* on: May 02, 2007 04:43:20 AM

NEW RULES: In order to comply with the new swap rules, ALL BIRTHDAY BABES WHO POST A BIRTHDAY WISH LIST MUST FULFILL A BIRTHDAY WISH OF AT LEAST ONE FELLOW BIRTHDAY BABE.  In other words, if you post a list and receive a gift, you must send at least one gift.  Non-birthday craftsters may still send "unconditionally".  Unconditionally in this swap means if someone fulfills one of your birthday wishes, you will send them a thank you note via snail mail.  PM's or thank you posts do not count as thank you notes.  Negative feedback will be given for those who post lists and receive, but never send.  Negative feedback will also be given to those who don't send a thank you note. Please read below for the exact details.  They are in BOLD.

- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:

- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- 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:  This swap was organized so everyone can get something crafty for their birthday!  Please read the guidelines carefully.

    * If your birthday is in May, then you can post your birthday wish list for this month. To do that, you must first PM me with the Swap questionnaire filled out.
    * Once you have been approved, you may post your list of things that you would want to receive.  The more you think of, the better.  Please try to have a good mix of items on your list.  The last wish you will post is "a surprise."  Then you will post a bio about yourself, including where you are from and what day your birthday is.
    * Please post lists only.  No discussion on this thread please.
    * Everyone will then go through the lists and choose a craftster they want to send a birthday gift to.  Your birthday does not have to be in May for you to craft for someone!  If you want to choose someone, just PM me with your info (including your address, please), who you want to craft for, what item, and I will send you their address.
    * When you choose to fulfill a birthday wish, you have 2 weeks to get the item out the door unless you communicate in advance that something will take a bit longer.  If two weeks pass, and I don't hear anything from youyou guessed it, negative feedback!
    * Each person can be chosen unlimited times!  HERE'S THE CATCH - when you get chosen, you must choose a fellow May baby to send a birthday wish to before May 31, 2007.  You must also send the person who crafted for you a thank you note within 2 weeks of receiving.   Failure to do either of these things will result in NEGATIVE FEEDBACK.
    * It is super important for everyone to keep good communication
.  It is required that when you send, let me know, and of course, don't forget the DC#.  It is required that when you receive, let me know and publicly announce in the gallery (even if you don't have pictures).  Also, let me know when you send off or receive your thank you note (no DC# required, you're on your honor!).
    * You can choose to craft for as many people as you like, but you cannot "owe" more than 3 things.  If you are a newbie and this is your first swap, you must successfully send once before choosing again.
    * Please state at the beginning of your list where you are located.  Some people absolutely cannot send to people overseas for any number of reasons.  We need to respect this valid concern.
    *When one of your items is chosen, please cross it out so that it is easier for others to see what has been chosen.  It wouldn't hurt to thank the person at this time either.

If you have any more questions or suggestions, you can send me a PM with "May Birthday Swap " in the subject line.

28  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Bobbin lace bookmarks on: April 26, 2007 03:24:36 AM
I made several bobbin lace bookmarks last fall and winter and here's two of them. Both are made of linen. I gave the black one to my sister and the red one to my mom (her astrological sign is leo). I found patterns from magazines.
29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / A top and my first circle skirt on: March 07, 2007 12:50:26 AM
I've seen many circle skirts here on craftster, and I wanted to make one too. This tutorial was great and making the skirt was quick and easy. Thank you april_cocaine!

When I saw this tutorial I knew right away that I want to make one too. I had to make darts on the back to make it fit better and my straps go straight over the shoulders, but otherwise I followed the tutorial. Thanks, lemonadelemonade!

Now I have to wait until it's warm enough to wear this kind of clothes.
30  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Three books I made on: February 21, 2007 12:44:50 PM
I'm learning Japanese book binding. I made these books on monday. The covers of the pink book are from a board game I used to have when I was a child.

I used different kinds of papers in the two small books: patterned papers, vellum, maps, hand made paper. There's only white paper inside the pink one.
