This is a wishlist swap;  post a list and you may receive it!   Your list will need to consist of where you are from (it's okay to just put your state and/or country), crafted items that you would like (it helps greatly to include links to photographs, tutorials, etc.) and/or crafting supplies.

First: You will look through the lists of the people
who have already posted.  You will THEN pick someone from
there to craft for.

Second: As soon as you have messaged me, the organizer,
telling me who you would like to craft for and your answers to the
I will tell you that you can post a list.

- to be able to post a list you have to craft for at least ONE person
- there must be AT LEAST 5 items on your list
- you can be picked as many times as you have items on your list
- if you have been picked 3 times, you have to pick one other person to craft for, then you can picked more...

- please use DC#s or get a copy of the customs number when sending your packages... this helps greatly if they're lost in the mail!
- regular communication is required, so PM me when you send and when you receive
- you can craft for more than one person if you want, just PM me who you'd like to craft for and I'll send you their address!

When one of your items is picked, you must cross it out on your list and thank the person sending the item to you.

Person B wants to have their list posted so they PM the organizer with their questionnaire answers, and what they want to craft from Person A’s list.  The organizer will then PM person B, give them person A’s address, then they can then post their list.

Person C wants to have a list up, so they choose from A OR B, PM the organizer their answers, the name of the person they want to craft for, and what they’re going to craft.   Then they wait until the organizer approves them and sends them the address of whom they have picked.  Then they can post their list.

Say person A has been chosen 3 times. For them to be picked more, they have to pick one more person to craft for. 
The organizer (me) will let you know when you need to pick someone else if you want to receive more items.

*If you are going to be away from your postal service, you need to have a third party pick up your package and alert the organizer (me).
*Please don't PM me with your estimated date of sendout.  PM me after you have actually sent the package.
*If you have aversions to animal products or you have allergies that you feel need to be addressed, please include that in your introduction when you post your list (this isn't for me, it's for those who are crafting for you!).
*If you or your roommates smoke, please launder your crafts if possible or air-freshen them before sending.

Happy New Year! I'm in Toronto, Canada!  I'm 29... work full time and volunteer the majority of my free time to a children's community theatre company.  I just got a puppy about a month ago and it's been so awesome. I love to knit, felt and learn about new crafts.  I have a new sewing machine that I haven't done much more than look at. I'm itching to learn how to use it! 

Here's my list: [thanks so much for taking the time to look through it!]

1. Taggie Blanket kit - fabric, ribbons and instructions. I would love to learn how to make some for some very pregnant friends! ie. What the heck is minky fabric?

1a. Taggie Blanket for a girl  THANKS SO MUCH, greenapples!!!
2. Stenciling kit for onesies, bibs and burb cloths - it's a baby making virus and all my friends have it!

3. Caron Simply Soft Yarn - i can't find it here. I would love colours in white, grey, black, blues, greens, chocolate brown, reds... enough to make a hat or mittens!

4. pincushion - i don't have one! I would adore one of those lovely flower pin cushions that have been cropping up everywhere!   Thanks so much LaughingLark! You rock!

5. soap making kit - especially the teeny tiny soaps found here!

6. sewing kit - I have visions of making kanzashi flowers, tote bags, fabric headbands, cinnamon scented hot pads and quilts. My fabric stash is pitiful. And I'm pretty clueless about where to begin. Huh  A project to get my started would be fantastic.

7. Supplies - yarn, wool roving, wool felt, ribbon, fabric (fleece, cotton)... if you're cleaning out your closet after the holidays....*hint hint nudge nudge*   THANKS kayrun!! I can't wait!

8. A doggy bag - as in a diaper bag for my puppy! I don't know why, but we can't travel light when we go visiting. There's the poop bag, toys, wipes, treats, food, towel, paper towels in case of accidents etc.

9. Small fabric bag - like a lunch bag or something shaped like a typical gift bag but sturdier - if it can be embroidered with my puppy's name on it, that'd be so awesome... she can take it with her to puppy daycare and it can hold her leash, treats, toys and food for the day.  (I know what you're thinking...puppy daycare?!!!)

10. A fabric belt - something in pink, white, brown, blue...fun/flirty...

11. Tissue paper holder

12. amigurumi  - cat, dog, turtle...

13. fabric headbands

14. Pink Sock Monkey like this one:https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=126018.0

15. lipbalm holder/keychain

Surprise me from my wists!  There's lots of loves and stuff I drool over on it!http://www.wists.com/Ember77

thanks so so so so much for looking!

Hi there! I'm Kristin, in Missouri. I'm a 43 year old mom of three boys.

Here's my list:

1. I love koi, and would like something koi-themed to decorate my home. I'm starting a collection.  Grin

2. Seed beads! Stashbust all over me if you have too many! Cheesy Santa brought me a beadspinner, so I will be going through lots of them. I prefer that the beads not be mixed-together colors, so I can just put them in my beadspinner and get to work with them, without sorting them first. I will be making lots of French-beaded flower whatsits this winter.Thank you, Silver Ilix!

3. 4mm beads of any material, except for mini pony beads. Glass, plastic, wood, metal, E-beads---it's all good.  Smiley Hooray!! Thank you, Ember77!!

4. Bits of interesting fabrics for making Omiyage and small patchwork projects. I love jewel tones and oriental themes. Small scraps are fine, as my projects are almost always small.

5. Something for my husband to throw his keys and ID badge into when he comes home from work. I'm trying to get him to keep them in one place, so he does not have to hunt for them.  Roll Eyes Maybe a small, shallow tray of some kind? He loves old-time Chicago blues, so maybe decorate it with a blues-themed collage?  Smiley

6. A fused glass pendant.

7. Resin and sequin pendants or fridge magnets! I love the look of these, but since I have athsma, I'm afraid to try making my own. I hear there are fumes involved.  Sad

Thanks in advance to anyone who picks me!

Happy New Year to everyone!
I am Karen G in Georgia, USA.
Age = 40-ish
My list:

earrings - - need clip-ons, but would love something funky/beaded maybe?

anything with polka dots!

handmade soap thanks, Dulcinea!

I like this bag:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=31017.0
(maybe a little smaller?  in polka-dots even?)

throw pillows in tan, forest green or sage

size 7US knitting needles (Susan Bates preferred) thanks, Dulcinea!

a magic yarn ball sounds intriguing

knitting magazines (used/regifted are fine)

craft kits that would be good with elem. students (I have 11 students)

I am an ESL teacher, so I love anything to do with languages/international cultures, especially Asia (Japan).

No allergies, but don't like the smell of cig. smoke.
I like any & all colors, and am generally very easy to please!
Thanks for looking over my list....

Hi, I'm Amy, in Wisconsin, USA...... right... about me.  I'm the old lady in the crowd, the one peering over the bifocals.  I have 2 teenagers, and my day job is a computer programmer.  I have no allergies, no issues with animal products, would prefer to avoid religion/religion articles and politics at all costs.... my favorite colors are the jewel tones, think ruby, sapphire, emerald... i don't do terribly well with pastels.  We live in an apartment, where space is always at a premium... so small things that sit on tables and shelves and don't do anything except collect dust aren't a great thing here.

wish list!

handspun yarn - any color, any weight, as long as it's enough to make something out of it

hand painted yarn - do you love to Kool-Aid dye?  i'm in an apartment, and I'm massively afraid to try it here... so if you love to dye the yarn (specially the painted technique) and wanted to send the results, I'd probably be your best friend for life!

Noro Kureyon yarn - any leftovers - parts of a ball, a full ball - there's a blanket on knitty.com I'd love to make, and it uses a lot of this - so if you have any leftovers, I'd love to be able to turn them into a blanket!

felting yarn - bright colors, reds, burgundy, blues are favorites

squares to make a quilt - 6" x 6", please.  I'll piece everything together (and post the results). <<< Thanks, xLadyLuckx - and yes, I want more!!

Unusual writing weapons... i mean, i don't want it to leak all over my purse, but if you had working fountain pens that you just don't use anymore, I'd be delighted to put them back to work!

anything inspired by my wist  http://www.wists.com/Dulcinea

thick athletic socks with slouchy cuffs - on my wist, there's a pair for the style I like

ribbons - anything bright color or sparkly - maybe about an inch, inch and a half wide?  we use them to patch jeans, and for piecing together parts for other projects

felted case for my digital camera - so i don't scratch the screen - PM for dimensions.

Anything Philadelphia eagles football for my son, who loves them

Thanks in advance to anyone who chooses me

Hello! I'm in Georgia, USA~ I turn 24 on the 19th this month, and still dont know what I want ot be when I 'grow up' ;P I'm currently 'in between jobs', but hopefully will be starting up my own small business soon. I love crafting, some of my 'specialties' are felting, beading, reconstruction/repurposing (really, if it's something, I try to make it used for something else!), papercrafts, some light hand-sewing, and an assortment of other random things ^^ My favorite colors are black, red, silvers, purples... I am not a fan of yellow, orange, or brown! Basically, my Wists read me like a book!

Here is my wishlist Cheesy

Crafty Things
- Needlefelting tool, like Clover's
- Bookbinding // Soap making // Sewing // Crochet // Knitting Kit.... I really like learning new things, so any sort of kit would go over greatly with me Cheesy
- Wool roving (any colors)

- Heating Pad- like these, or however you choose to make them Smiley I will be a very happy girl to have this! Thank you Silver Ilix! I'm so excited!! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

- An apron... I prefer the kind that go all the way up... like this: http://www.henryandlulu.com/images/product/127ED_JES0020200.jpg But I'll love a cute ]little apron too

- Anything inspired from my Wist list Smiley http://www.wists.com/emiko  There's a lot on there, so I'm fairly confident you'll find something Smiley

- A journal/planner/calander/something that will help me actually keep track of my *ahem* period  Lips sealed It might be a wierd request/wish, but I'm terrible at this on my own~

- A tote bag to carry felting tools, wool, yarn, crochet hooks... So I can carry my crafty things around Cheesy

I'm pretty easy to please, but if you're not sure about something, just ask Cheesy I know my list seems kind of short, but the meat of it all is on the Wist list. I'll try to add some more stuff later Smiley

Thank you!

alrighty, its my turn! im Ariel, im fifteen, im a sophmore in highschool. im Dulcinea's kid...but please, remember that we are separate craftsters. i am a knitter ((learned from moms step mom)) a crocheter ((learned from mom)) a sew-er((also mom)) a book and kanzashi flower maker ((self taught)) and a newfound spinner((learned from an older woman in my area, who rocks!)) im located in Wisconsin((of course...i LIVE with Dulcinea!))

on to the list!

pretty pretty roving...as long as its got long staples((longer peices of fiber)) then i will be able to spin it...solid or variegated colors are fine...i want to spin as much as possible this semester.

amy butler fabric, enough to make at least a small bag with...

non-acrylic yarn---any color any fiber, but i especially love Patons SWS//Plymouth Boku//Noro((ANY)) pretty much any of the self striping ones that have really big stripes and gradual color shifts

a knitting kit to make the eunny jang end paper mitts...i dont need the needles...but directions with tips, yarn, funky stitch markers, bobbins for my second color would all be FANTABULOUS!

a full set of double ended felt dreads like jane doe makes...preferably either hot pink and lime green, or jewel tones.

the rock n roll backpack from SNB:KH in the monkey variations...

anything off of my wist of course!((link in signature)) but talk to xladyluckx first...shes my rockin' IYP partner!

i honestly cant think of what else to add without stealing my other lists...and i want this one to be a special list...so if you think of something for me, feel free to PM me, but these are the things i would REALLLLLY like. 

thanks in advance for anyone who choses to craft for me!


knit crochet or sewn headbands....can never have too many!...im finding i love wearing them

someone willing to patch up my jeans...ive been doing it but my stitching sucks...i will ((obviously)) send you my dieing jeans, and would  you make them fun for me? i dont care with what...fabric ribbons patches anything...just as long as they come back not falling apart anymore, i would be THRILLLLLLLLED
