CLOSED until May 1

Firstly, it should be known that my household is non-smoking, but I do have two furry cats. Please pm me if you need more detailed info about any of the items. 

Available items:

1. Silk/rayon velvet cloche-ish style hat, fits a 22.5" head circumference. From a Vogue pattern.

2.  owl and Cat Mark 2, from a Burda WOF magazine December 1972. Dark burgundy wool gabardine, cotton, polyfill. Not suitable for very small children. As before, they go as a pair.

3. Small sequined fish ornament/toy. Silk dupioni, sequins, and beads. I can add a hanging loop if desired.

4. Blue vinyl purse, 16 inches from bottom to top of handles, cotton lining. Manta ray reverse applique.

5. Bear-purse for a child, synthetic sherpa, cotton lining, zipper top closure. Will hold a few small items; from a Simplicity? pattern.

6. Snaily from fulled sweater sleeves; sweaters reclaimed from thrift stores. Wool, poly fiber stuffing. I have a quantity of sweater parts so there may be more of these in the offing later.

7. Batik cotton tea towel, 24"x38", vareigated purple with red lobsters (colors are darker than in photo):

The tea towels are a midweight cotton - use as a towel, or craft them into something else. They are dyed with Procion dyes and soy wax.

8. Blue felted bowl, wool. 7" diameter, 3" height.

9. Pillowcover for an 18-20" pillow form, Tan with applique sweater bits and buttons on the front, dark brown on the back. Invisible zipper closure.  Linen, sweaters, buttons.

10. Appliqued patches, done by someone else (I just scavenged them and have extra). The frogs have little mouths that open, and the bugs are stuffed and very 3d, especially the beetle. Backing is cotton interfaced with what appears to be wrapping paper. I would advise against washing them. You get all six (two frogs, a scorpion, a beetle, a lizard, and something that is probably a snake).

11. Simple cards with a tool/engineering theme, pick any six with plain envelopes. Jigsaw, files, screws, pliers, screwdriver, springs, electrode, thermometer, battery, winch, bunsen burner, faucet, pulley; from a children's picture dictionary.

12. Felt wallhanging, Colorful Colorado 2, roughly 14" square (I'm guessing on the size here). Wool, hemp, linen. For someone who likes neutrals!
(Aka You can have any color you want, as long as it is brown. The thing here is that when you cross the border into eastern colorado, there is a big sign saying "Welcome to Colorful Colorado", but you are surrounded for hundreds of miles by rolling hills of brown nothingness with no other colors in evidence, aside from the sky. Sometimes the sky is brown too.)

13. Chopstick purse, from a McCalls pattern. Irridescent silk dupioni lined with cotton, chopstick handles, plastic canvas, magnetic closure. Size 10" by 5". Due to the plastic canvas interfacing, this bag is very stiff. Color brighter in real life (purple/blue cross weave)

14. Fabric wallets (from the Wonder Wallet pattern), approx. 4.5" in width, velcro closure, coin and card pockets. I have two, pick one.

15. Felt, Blue Ridge 1, merino. Approx. 14 inches wide.

16. Felt, Jellie Jamboree, wool. Approx 2 feet long. Jellies are made from cotswold curls and are loosely felted to retain texture. Fun for kids (or jelly fanatics) claimed!
[url width=360 height=188]http://decapod.home.silentsong.net/sswap34.jpg[/url]

And....random freebies, combine with any of the above items. Can also go with packages that I have not yet shipped.

A. I bought a ball of string at the thrift store, and found when I got home that there was a mostly-finished tatted? crocheted? doily-thing inside. It is still connected to the ball of string, and there are safety pins around the edge. The outer edge of the doily is only partially complete. You get the doily and as much of the string as you think you will need (there is a lot). The string appears to be cotton. http://decapod.home.silentsong.net/sstmp2.jpg

Coming in May!
 Blue Ridge the sequel, Total Eclipse
chopstick purse in sushi,
felting needle rolls (if I can find those dang coffee stirrers),
cherry blossom sweater tote
more batik tea towels (potentially tree and anthill)
various clothes

love2experiment's little swap shop: Closed! Sad

All items are handcrafted by me.  I don't smoke, but I have a mini schnauzer who likes to sleep in my craftroom, so if you have pet allergies, you might wanna take that into consideration!  To find out more about the items and/or see more pictures of the items, click on the pictures!  

TWO SETS OF CHARMS (yes, you get both sets!):

Ok, my shop is now open!

1. Skull tote bag. With bow. I did make a small mistake on this bag, nothing major- but as a result of my stupid mistake it hangs a bit funny. You can't tell when you're wearing it though.

2. Prawn coloured crocheted scarf. Made by a friend- I have too many scarves!

3. Green felt pouch:

4. Charms. Most are made by LaughingLark and are totally gorgeous. She sent me lots of them in the OWS19, and I love them all- but these were the ones I couldn't use. I thought I might as well offer them on here! Also some polymer clay beads and marbles! Sold to the lovely Raynbow!

5. Charm bracelet. Measures about 6.5 inches. Very pretty!

6. Crochet flowers- one of each colour shown. Sold to the lovely Raynbow!

Hope you like!  Smiley

Me too! This sounds great!

I have a lot of African tie-dye fabric (100% cotton) that I need to clear out - contact me if interested, and we can swap for stuff?

2. Buttercream tart soaps (Clear glycerine soaps in tart cups (1 green, 1 blue) and scented like buttercream)

3. Pair of glitter soaps (1 pink rectangle that smells of pearberry, and 1 turquoise circle that smells of mandarin and benzoin)

6, 7, 8 and 9. Guitar pick earrings (These are all pretty log, but I can shorten them a bit if you want.)
