Organizers: sunspotted and TwiztidBlood

*IMPORTANT PM INFO*: When sending PMs, please label them as OWS 31 with one of the following tags:
Package sent
Package received

So when sending the questionnaire, the subject will read OWS 31 Approval. When notifying us about sending and receiving packages, add the corresponding tag. If you just have a general question, label it as that. This will keep things organized for us!
When sending a sent/received PM, please include the 'Send by' date so my craziness will stay at a minimum.

Please bookmark this thread and/or post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything.


How This Swap Works:
Please READ CAREFULLY! This swap works differently than most!

Try to imagine a chain.  The first link is the first person whose wish list is on page 1 (Person A) - that will be the craftster member who was the very last wish list from Ongoing Wish Swap 30.

Now, we want to put another link in the chain.  People will read that list and see if there is something they want to/can make from the list.

Someone (Person B) will claim Person A for some item on their wish list.  They post a reply to the thread that says I claim Person A for [item].  This is my X claim (however many times they have picked someone for example, "this is my fourth wish, with one sent, and three received, (meaning that this is the fourth claim they've made, one is in transit to it's destination, and three of the items have been received by the people they previously claimed).  Also add your location, and any preferences or aversions I live in Wisconsin USA, I am a vegetarian, and I am allergic to wool.

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPLY WITH YOUR STATUS WHEN YOU CLAIM SOMEONE!  This means you need to post who you are claiming and for what, how many claims you have made, including how many in transit and how many received, and your location/preferences/aversions.

Then comes the fun part!  After the introduction, Person B is the last link in the chain, and they post their wish list!!!  YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY ITEMS ON YOUR WISH LIST AS YOU WANT, HOWEVER YOU MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF SIX.  THE MORE ITEMS YOU LIST, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF BEING CLAIMED QUICKLY.

(Please have your list ready, this swap moves very quickly!  Please include your country at the start of your wish list). Person B will also PM Person A to get her address so they can mail the item when it is finished.  

Along comes Person C, who claims Person B for something on their list and the chain is built, link by link.  (If Person C wanted to make Person B a purse AND a stuffie, that would still count as ONE WISH.)  Then they post their list, and so on.

When you want to make a claim, you can ONLY pick from the very last wish list in the chain.  You can't pick anyone else in the chain - you can only connect to the very end of the chain, which is that last wish list posted.

After you have made your claim, you need to PM that person for their address.

Friends of Craftster are allowed 3 wishes at one time, others are allowed 2 wishes.  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one wish until your craft is received for this month.  Do not choose over your given limit.
 If you already have one claim that will be sent out late, please don't claim again until that one is sent out.

Become a Friend of Craftster!  Go here: https://www.craftster.org/subscribe.php

If you are at your limit of wishes, you can choose again once one of your partners receives, NOT when you send.
***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***

Let's keep the quality high here. I don't want to receive PMs with people concerned over the lack of quality of their items.  Please, just work your hardest to keep the bar high on the quality of items here!  Don't choose just for the sake of choosing; choose to make someone else a really AWESOME wish!

Now if the thread gets in a rut for a few days/hours, the person who made the last wish should add to their list if they can think of anything else, until someone decides to craft for them. Please make sure this is not you!

Unsure of where to find wish ideas?  Try the previous ongoing wish swap galleries or any other gallery on craftster.  Look through your fellow crafters wist lists.


Please be communicative if you are having any issues. If you communicate you still need to send your item in a timely manner.  Communication does not mean you can send as late as you want.  After one week past the deadline you will have negative feedback.  This is only temporary as it will be changed back once you fulfill your obligation for late item(s).  Do not choose to craft an item if you do not think you can meet these deadlines.

I will be giving feedback in the following way:
-  great swapper: for those who follow all the rules
-  good/poor communication:  where applicable
-  sent late/early: where applicable
-  no dc number: failed to comply with the rule about using a delivery confirmation number for packages within your own country
- didn't post pictures: failed to post pictures of what they received without an adequate explanation to their partner

I'm on call tonight, so just in case I'm not around, let's begin.   gavagai is up from OWS 30

I live in Sweden with my boyfriend and four little teletubbies Grin. In about a week the teletubbies will get competition in the form of a little baby, now still in my tummy. Smiley

I am sorry if my list looks very detailed. I am not fuzzy. It's more a case of having some difficulties to express what I mean in English, so the wording might get a bit complex sometimes.  Smiley

Top wishes right now

I know this is a lot to ask for, but if someone wants to make me a baby sling I would absolutely love you!  Cheesy Kiss My baby is due on the 6:th of February, and if someone out there knows how to make a safe and reasonably ergonomical baby sling that would be so great! Extra perfect would be one that you wrap both around your shoulders and around the hips (have really no idea how they work or how you make them, but it seems better for your back to carry the weight on your hips).

I am looking for crafting supplies of different kinds, among others these (that I can't get or have had trouble finding here)...

Lightscribe cds/dvds for me to lightscribe on. Would love different colours! Can't get them here.  Cry

I am looking for fabric that consists of "frames" of some sort with a white inside. Ideal would be images of empty photo frames (if anyone has seen such a fabric, PLEASE tell me where  Smiley), but otherwise maybe just white squares with a border of some other colour around it. I would like to use it to iron-on images in the white sqare and get the effect that the image is framed.

Silver or silver plated/gold plated wire, thinner than 0.4 mm (maybe someone can translate this into American standard?)

Joints for making dolls/teddybears, to fasten arms and legs to make them movable (preferably not too big)

Flat metal things with a loop (preferably silver/gold or silver/gold plated) to fasten on the back of for example a marble to make it into a pendant. Something like this: https://www.rings-things.com/cgi-bin/hazel/hazel.cgi?action=detail&item=49-455-3  Ideally either 10mm or 20mm square, but also interested in other sizes.

Buttons or badges that I can cover with fabric.

book with fun/cute Japanese sewing and/or crochet patterns (when it comes to books it might ne a good idea to ask if I already have the book before claiming  Smiley)

Chunky fun yarn (something that looks a bit different in one way or another).

Strange colour (other than white or transparent) shrinky dinks (I think there is a black kind); I would really prefer the "shrinky dink" brand! Have enough for now, thank you.  Smiley

Crafting/Sewing themed metal charms (like scissors or something, to be used for making jewelry). Holding this for now, since some are on their way. Thank you!  Kiss

Gold plated chain to make necklaces and other jewelry.

Silver plated finger rings with a large plate (1.5-2 cm?) with sides/borders (will try to find a link to make it less confusing) for crafting jewelry.

A kit for some kind of craft I haven't tried yet. Feel free to PM me about that.

Glass thingies, especially ones with holes in them:
Other glass shapes on the same site are also as interesting, and coloured square marbles also... Just different shaped glass thingies to put pictures behind really... and/or coloured ones for rings:
(I already have enough of the "normal" round transparent ones (that you can buy in flower shops (at least here) though.)

Snap buttons of good quality, preferably bigger and/or ones that you "punch" on (rather than sew or fold those little metal clips thingies) (plastic and/or metal)

Magnetic snaps for making bags. Also on their way. Thank you!  Kiss

Handles for making bags Have gotten a few from craftster people. Thank you!  Kiss

Crochet books or magazines with fun new projects (not too traditional stuff). I like "Crochet today". I only have the september-october 2007 issue so far. Please ask me before you send a crochet book, since I have a few (not many) already and might have the one you want to send.

Craft books/magazines in general with fun new projects (not too traditional stuff) (in English or German or with easy-to-follow pictures (well, Swedish is good as well  Cheesy)

Cotton (or at least not too plastic/synthetic looking) lace trim, second hand/vintage is great!

...and some crafted things. For styles and ideas, feel free to check my wist!

Small plates to put used tea bags on. Something that works like these, but maybe another design. I like stylish/funky/cleancut... http://www.desina.se/index.asp?contentpage=products&kategoriid=18 It would be great if they could work as a decoration on the table when not used, maybe stackable ones?

A scarf made out of multi-coloured crocheted flowers (is there a name for it? is it even flowers? you know those colourful round things put together)

Cute/strange amigurumis. I like unusual looking ones. Oh, and I am especially looking for a crocheted Scandinavian lemming. That would be just awesome!  Cheesy (You should be able to get a picture of the Scandinavian lemming if you google it, otherwise I can try to find one.)

A rainbow sock monkey!

Fun, funky baby clothes (baby due in February!  Smiley) We're not into gender stereotyping, so any colours are o.k. Something knitted would be really cool, but anything goes: appliques, fabric painted, crocheted (maybe comfy shoes/socks?)... Have enough for now. Thank you!  Smiley

A stuffed animal/toy that consists of (bright) yellow and black fields. These are the colours that newborn babies easiest can distinguish between, and I think it's strange that so many babies toys are in shades of light blue/pink and other colours that a little baby has a really hard time even distinguishing from the surroundings. So any design where fields of yellow contrasts against fields of black would be so great! The toy would have to be safe for a newborn baby. Example of good colours: http://ygmpp.en.alibaba.com/product/50393228/51885663/Plush_Toy/Stuffed_Animal_Plush_Bumble_Bee_Toy.html

Felt creatures for my Chrismas tree. We have this white plastic Christmas tree, that is really quite good looking, kind of magical with lights shining. I discovered that it looks even more magical if I let little creatures live on the branches, so for next Christmas I will need more woodland creatures, monsters or something like that to inhabit it. Felt looks good. I guess they could be crocheted as well, little amigurumis. Size maybe somewhere between 1.5" and 3.5". Some creatures to inspire you: http://www.flickr.com/photos/fantastictoys/sets/1630769/ but feel free to use your imagination.  Smiley

Knit/crocheted "lovers mittens" (see my wist)!

And of course anything else from or inspired by my evergrowing wist.

Please no food/candy! and I'm not too keen on batiks

Need something crocheted?  I'll swap amis, afghans, shawls or whatever for a box of yarn.  Smiley

Don't want to interrupt, but I had a sling and it was wonderful!  I would make you one gavagai, but my seamstress skills are lacking.

Here is a site with LOTS of patterns!


Congratulation on you new bundle of joy!
« Reply #6 on: February 02, 2008 07:44:43 AM »

I claim gavagai for crochet magazines or books.

List in a min.


NEW: I got a sewing machine for Christmas (my bf rocks) but the thing is, its my first so I have nothing: I need thread, fabric and whatever else you need to seriously start sewing (patterns welcome too). So absolutely everything is welcome.  Thanks dontlookback, more is welcome.
My goal is to make a dress for myself for a friends wedding in July.

NEW: My bf needs caps and bandanas (in boyish colors) for his head. He just underwent chemo for leukemia. He just got a whole bunch of those plus I love his bald head.
On that subject, I would really like to remind all of you to donate blood as well as platelets (leukemia patients need a lot of transfusions), also for those of you who have considered donating organs, please consider getting yourself on the bone marrow donor registry (http://www.marrow.org/HELP/Join_the_Donor_Registry/index.html). My bf is lucky enough that both his brothers are a match but other patients need the help of strangers. Thank you.

NEW: I need a new pair of slippers. They can be store bought and embellished (I have a preference for embroidery), knitted/crocheted then felted for durability or made from scratch if you feel so inclined, women's US 8, UK 5, EUR 38/39

NEW: Lion Brands Jiffy yarn for an afghan for a friends wedding:
2 balls Chili, 2 balls Paprika, 1 ball Gold, 2 balls Rust, 2 balls violet, 2 balls Dusty pink, 1 ball Navy, 1 ball Apple green, 1 ball Grass green, 1 ball Lemon

NEW: a bedcaddy (http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us/507_515.htm) so i am not fishing for my glasses and my book on the floor.

NEW:a bathrobe or something similar for lounging in my pjs


   Felted bag: something small like Amandas squatty sidekick (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=187674.0)
   A basket to keep my wips under control (in whatever medium youd like)
   A hand-painted or customized mug
   A kimono inspired hoodie like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177160.80;
   A pair of flannel pajama pants
   Softies of realistic animals (jungle or farm animals, always a hit) for the lovely children in my life, and there is quite a few of those, so the more, the merrier. Thanks Kelda and summertimerolls, on hold for now
   A pair of knitted socks (I cant seem to be able to do that)
   A skirt, I prefer knee-length, PM for measurement. Id love something like that http://www.wists.com/Poerava/e97f1f125f6abe4e4c87a0213146e011 , solid dark color with embellishment.
   Thrummed mittens
   A bag big enough to take to my bfs on the week-end (hold 3 change of clothes, hairbrush), Id love something with a corduroy fabric and some embellishment.

   You can check my wists  http://www.wists.com/Poerava
   Glass and ceramic tiles or pieces in green for a mosaic (the coffee table needs upgrading)
   Shrink plastic
   Fabric covered buttons
   Split ring stitch markers
   Circular knitting needles, every sizes and length welcome.


I am 26 years old and have been living in Chicago, IL for the past 2 years. I am originally from France, I have also lived in London, Germany and Tahiti (dont hesitate to send goodies from those places; I really miss a lot of things).
I am a nanny, so I tend to be very practical (no frilly, girly things in my wardrobe, sticky fingers are not forgiving). I like soft pinks, browns, reds and neutrals, blues are great too, no greens please. I love to read, fantasy and sci-fi in particular and I am a bit of a TV addict.

I claim addicted2knitting for some photography suitable for framing and some flowering teas. List in a sec.

This is my 1st claim of 3, 0 sent, 0 received.

I'm 27 and I live in California with my boyfriend and our 2 cats. We also take care of the homeless kitties in our neighborhood so we feel like we have a lot more than 2. Im a vegetarian and I love to cook. I knit, crochet, embroider, decoupage, and do some other misc. crafts with pictures cut from magazines. Im super into amigurumis and embroidery right now, but still havent actually made an ami yet. I love greens, blues, and purples. I watch WAY too many movies and am a complete and total Tivo-aholic. I dont have any allergies, I just dont like the smell of cigarette smoke. 

Stuff I Want:

Curtains made from some super cute fabric in blues/greens - we live behind a plumbing place so our kitchen windows look out on their gross, old toilets and stuff - PM for measurements/colors/whatever else you need to know (too lazy to do it right now )

Reflexology socks or gloves

An adult bib -  Cheesy I'm kind of half kidding about this. I have big boobs and I spill something on them almost every time I eat. My bf is always saying I need a bib so I figured I'd post it on my wish list to see if one of you awesome sewers can create something amazing. I don't want it to look like a baby bib, I want it to be cute, something I can actually use.

Art for my sad, bare walls

Black picture frames to hang up - preferably filled with pictures of your choice

Antique postcards and/or black and white photos (or sepia) - Thanks simplyfussfree! I also have some pending from TwiztidBlood - I can always use more though.

Board games - I especially love Pictionary, Scattegories, Scrabble, Taboo, Catch Phrase, and I want Cranium. All of mine were ruined by some gross mold we found in our kitchen (don't worry, it's been cleaned up now.)

Knitting magazines - I have a lot so PM me for specifics

Blooming tea and a clear pot to brew it in

Cute buttons/pins - I've got some wisted so you can check out what I like

Cat beds!! Soft, comfy, warm ones. - blanket for the kitties pending from TwiztidBlood - thank you!

He rides a scooter so maybe something scooter related (specifically Honda Ruckus) or warm to wear when it's cold. He plays guitar and video games. He loves poker. Anything for him would be nice.

Candy from other countries - American candy is good too - I have a major sweet tooth

Any baked goodies you want to send me. No meat products please. I'm okay with eggs being in it though.

I claim Lilyvanilli for something to make her sad walls less so.

This is my first claim and I'm in North Dakota.

In no particular order:

Big wish (I guess I lied about the no order thing): My current handbag is tearing so Im in the market for a new one that is more interesting than the selection at the local department stores.  Id like one thats smallish with a strap long enough so I could put it over my shoulder and have the bag tuck under my bicep, if that makes sense.  Im really open to different styles (except I dont like the slouchy, sling-looking ones).  Forgive the lack of correct terminology.  I can snoop around for examples if someone would like more specifics or pm me for more specifics.

Id love a microscope slide pendant, or really any unique pendant necklace (gold looks terrible against my skin, so Id prefer silver connectors).  I wear predominantly button down shirts, so if theres a chain, I'd like the length to be between 14 and 16" or else no one will be able to see it.  I'm not picky about style, though I prefer chunky to delicate, especially because Im pretty rough on jewelry.  Im in love with the ones Ive seen that involve text, especially.

Unique art for my office walls I dont like to make art for myself, just for other people.  Something square or rectangular would be ideal since everything else is squared off and right angled, and I think a round anomaly would bug me.  Im also not big on cutesy things, with the exception of bunnies.

My husband and I just got some nice tables for the living room, so we could use some coasters to prevent them from getting screwed up.  I really like the resin ones (we had knit ones, but they became blankets for my stepsons dinosaurs  Roll Eyes).

Id love something based on the character of Prickle from Gumby.  I hate Gumby, but Prickle (the yellow dinosaur guy) has special significance for me and my husband.  I couldnt find many  great images of him, but he looks like this:

Something based on The Little Prince (the book, not the show) would be great also.  Really anything.

I'm into animals that defy logic (the platypus, the kiwi, the narwhal), so anything crafted on one of those themes would be great.

Handmade note cards based on various song lyrics (if chosen, Id link my claimer to my last.fm profile for my top artists).  I received some lovely ones from Lunanne in round 30, but Id love some more.

Something made from old typewriter keys.

One of my goals this year is to start embroidering.  I know nothing, have nothing, so anything that could help me realize this goal would be much appreciated.

A surprise whatever you feel like youre best at or what youd most like to make, Id love to see, especially if it pertains to my interests listed below.  Im really open to most anything.

Im a mid-20s English teacher in North Dakota.  I prefer offbeat to traditional, drab to bright, dark to light, severe to rounded.  I dislike warm colors (especially pinks, reds, yellows) and jewel tones, flowers, anime-style, and most things that can be described with the repeated consonant + y equation (silly, frilly, etc.).  I like the way that words look (especially from a typewriter), Scrabble and crossword puzzles, trains, urban exploration, 1950s propaganda, subcultures, monsters, coffee, greens (that arent grass or forest), blues (that arent bright or navy), lots of things, really.

I can always get more specific as necessary just ask!
