Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that
every participant meets these conditions: YES
All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!

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
questionnaire, 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...
- this swap starts fresh each month, so if you weren't picked from a previous round, you can post your list up in this round (after you've PMed me and been given approval)
-please include where you are in your wishlist, so people know if they are sending out of country before they choose you.
- 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 As list.  The organizer will then PM person B, give them person As 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 theyre 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.

Hello everyone! I wasn't picked in May, so here is my list again! I'd be very grateful if you decided to craft for me :-D Have a llovely day!

Here are the things from Etsy I love. If anyone of you likes to sew and wants to do somethings similar like this, I'd be forever thankful


I like the shape of this bag, but you could change the fabric. Something blue/green/tourquoise would be great.

I also love this pencil case. The colours are fantastic.


And this is probably my most favourite bag of all:


Isn's it just devine?

Hey! I'm happy to participate in your awesome swap! I'm flora from Germany and love everything handmade. I just discovered my addiction to paper crafts. I got addicted yesterday and am already drawn into it ;P Yesterday I got some wonderful stamps and have been stamping all time now. I also love jewelry making, but can't sew properly. Since I really need a new bag and saw some pretty ones by all you talented craftsters here, it would be great if anyone would like to make me one. Here are some I love:

From this link I LOVE the first one. It is wonderful. I also love the fabric, but any blue, green, or turquoise fabric would by wonderful. Vintage flower patterns would be just perfect. Or something with stripes. I love the striped handles of this bag. The outer bags to put little things like mobile etc into is also great.


This tote is also very beautiful:


I love especially the shape. For the fabric you could chose something in the colours I've mentioned above.

This one is great, too:


However, I'd prefer if the handles are sewn along the outer fabric (if this makes any sense? like at the first bag in my wishlist)

I also love this bag in another fabric: (the first one)


I love this idea. I'm not that interested in pharmacy, but if you'd like to make me a surprise you could take this as inspiration: (I love different languages/and or travel journals)


Unfortunately I don't play golf, but I LOVE this piece:

So you could change the idea to something more general or just make it without any topic at all so that I could decide what to write on the notebook.

Since I'm starting with scrapbooking, I'd also love supplies for this. It is a bit difficult to get pretty papers etc in Germany, so if you'd like to send me something for this hobby, I'd very much appreciate it.

I'm travelling almost every weekend, so this travel bag would be perfect:


I also love the fabrics she chose.

I also wanted to post some ideas from etsy that I love, but their page doesn't work right now.

Thank you VERY MUCH to anyone who decides to craft for me! Your kind work is very much appreciated!

my biggest wishes are in bold  Wink

1. A skirt. I'd love a long, lightweight skirt for summer.
2. An 8" block or two for my craftster quilt!
3. Pajama pants (not flannel -- something light for summer)
4. A bag like this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=5769873

1. Amigurumi modeled after either my dog (Moses) or cats (MaryLou or Rusty).
2. A lacy crocheted wrap/shawl.

1. Craft books or magazines! I'll take pretty much anything (including gardening related stuff) -- but ESPECIALLY knitting books! No crochet, though.
2. Wood/bamboo purse handles
3. Yummy fibers for spinning!!  I'm an addict!
total wishful thinking: a drum carder, a center-pull ball winder  Cheesy
4. Wilton's gel icing dyes for dyeing roving (heck, I'll take undyed roving too!  Cheesy)

1. Anything made with PMC; especially a crane necklace or rosebud post earrings.
2. An embellished shirt. I wear cardigans a lot, so a tank with beading or embroidery around the neckline would be perfect.
3. Art for my walls.  Here are a few pieces I love:
3. Feel free to check out my wists, but *please* ask me first before you decide to make something for me from there because someone else might already be making it!

About me: I'm a 20 year old college student in Portland, Oregon, USA. I'm a part-time job coach for adults with developmental disabilities, and I can truthfully say that I love my job. I'm two terms away from my degree and I can't wait to be done!  Grin
I love nature, animals, and things that are eco-friendly and socially progressive. I don't like flashy or garish things and my favorite colors tend to be somewhat earthy shades. I like vintage/antique things (1920s - 1950s) but I also like fabric in fun modern prints (think Denise Schmidt).  At the moment my favorite crafts to do are knitting and spinning.

Thank you to everyone who has already sent me wonderful handcrafted items in the mail and thank YOU for reading my list!

Hello!  I'm Laura, a 22 year old student in Atlanta, GA.  I also wasn't picked in April, so here's my list again.  I love packages a lot- so anything you want to send will be very much appreciated.  Smiley

Sewn/altered things:
-  Screenprinted/stenciled/etc. tee, check the wists for ideas or PM me.  Women's medium
-  Altered zip-up hoodie
-  I would *love* a tote bag for all of my books, screenprinted or embroidered or appliqued, but also strong and with an inside pocket or two to keep small things organized.  Again, there are examples of awesome ones on my wist.
- A-line or wrap skirt!  Help me survive working in the Atlanta heat!
- Pajama pants (or maybe these t-shirt pants?  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=160060.msg1611625#msg1611625)
- Fabric headbands please! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=44540.0 Thank you Roxy!!

- Mastercarve blocks (or some other brand; for carving stamps)
- Small bits of beautiful fabric, with embroidery hoop, to help me get started on this:
- Fabric for a quilt- at least 7"x7," up to as much as you are willing to send.  It's for a quilt- small patterns are better than large ones, any color, just nothing plaid or too "country" (i.e., no hearts or fruit)

- Short, multi-strand beaded necklaces (some examples are on my wist) in any colors except brown or yellow

- A mug!  I really like mugs.  Something that will make me smile when I pour my coffee in the morning.
- Or- want to send me a coffee themed package?  That could double as an exam survival package?
- **BIG- BUT MUCH NEEDED!** A jewellery box to organize necklaces and bracelets.  This one is great, but I'm open to any set-up if it will let me separate fairly long/bulky necklaces:
- This thing to hold mail and slips of paper:  http://www.wists.com/defunctbuffalo/595442c770f6a5b32ea80ff00d813b4e?offset=0
- I've been wisting like crazy- I'd love a wisty surprise!

Thanks for reading, and thank you to anyone who picks me!

Hey gang! Another month is coming to an end.....
ah time flies!!!
I have to let you guys know that I can't organize next month.
Not because I don't want to but because I am still wrangling March, April and May (of course) And I belive that is the limit.
Can anyone take this baby on?
March was my very first organization ever and it was awesome!!!
Let me know if you can! Cheesy
