I claim Ruby Copperhead for world map fabric!
This is my second claim, 0 sent, 0 recieved.

Hey guys!  Im Heather, and me and my family live in Michigan.  We are big into nature, living green, recycling and stuff like that.  We love to hike, and we love things inspired by nature.   Ive got a kiddo, Alexander, and hes 8.75.  He turns 9 on December 22nd.  He loves Star Wars, Naruto, Avatar, Pokemon, Harry Potter, Goosebumps books, pirates, monsters, magic, all kinds of stuff.  He LOVES to read, like crazy.  He is super athletic, and very tall.  (he is only a couple of inches shorter than me!  It is scary!)
We just re-did his room. The walls are green, and the rest of the scheme is black, white, and silver/grey.  We wanted to give him a really nice, grown up room.  He is definitely a grown up kid.  He really really loves anything handmade.  He is the kind of kid who totally loves something more if it was made by hand. (I really lucked out!)
So heres some stuff he would LOVE:

Crocheted star wars guys: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_1&listing_id=14517559

Sock animal

A yoda poppet

A cool stenciled/screen printed/or sewn hoodie (size 12)  anything star wars, naruto, skulls, rock and roll, anything like that would be awesome!  We are into recycling clothing, so used, but nice hoodies newly stencilled are good too!

This fortune kitty, we are obsessed with them, and he would love a huggable one...just maybe not in pink!!

These snake mitts:

This squirrel:

A hammock like this, it would fit Alexander and Daddy!  We have tons of trees, so they would go crazy for this!

A hanging pocket organizer in black/white/silver/green, to hang in his room:
http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/1583

A birdcage like this, except in boy colors (no pink or flowers!):
http://pretty-ditty.blogspot.com/2008/03/fabric-bird-cage-tutorial.html

A boy monkey doll like the one from last round:https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=268959.30  (all the way at the bottom)

A kitty like this: http://wists.com/superhooker/9025f158567d9ce549352d34e83c0c06?offset=0

A water bottle holder like this, for when we go hiking (except with boy colors):
http://pinkchalkstudio.com/blog/2006/07/10/whiplash-challenge-water-bottle-carrier/

A stuffed viking like one of these:
http://www.herzensart.com/portfolio/en/start.html

A patchwork covered notebook (but in boy fabrics!) like this...he would especially like a notebook with plain white pages---not lined---because he likes to "write books":

Thanks in advance!!!

I claim superhooker for crocheted Star Wars guys
Third claim, 1 sent, 0 received.

Hi! I live in Germany with two lovely little nerdy chaos generators (soo unlike me Smiley ).

The Big M: 7 years old, loves computers, trains, maths, sports and reading, volcanoes, food charts (although I don't want any goodies of that), Star Wars toys (all stolen from me) and LEGO and Playmobil. Favourite TV shows are Lazy Town and Vicky the Viking, Pettersson & Findus, Shaun the Sheep, Kim Possible and Nils Holgersson. Favourite Films include Monster Inc., everything Winnie the Pooh, Shrek, and Ice Age.
Favourite color is blue.
Wears size 128.

The Middle M (there is no smaller one, but we are not allowed to call him small Smiley): 5 years old, loves trains, train schedules, Benjamin Bluemchen, cats, and music, music, music. Favourite toys are LEGO and Playmobil, blankets, pillows and stuffies, his wooden train and everything related to transport. Favourite TV shows and movies are same as his brother's. Likes all kinds of music. Loves to count, prefers to wear clothes with big numbers on. Slight preference for red, orange and green.
Wears size 110.

Their bedroom is jungle-themed, in primary colors, mostly green. There's a train's sub-theme (actually, we have that in every room Smiley )
Please consider that anything my kids get to handle must be robust.
No camouflage or war themed stuff please.

Please don't hesitate to discuss any matters of reducing shipment costs with me. If there is something I can do, like e.g. stuffing an item so you can send it flat, please let me know! I love big packages, but I feel so guilty! Smiley


Our wishlist:

- a crayon roll (can you make one that can also be hung on the wall?)

- Hoodies

- knitted hooded vest or sleeveless hooded jacket

- themed PJ bottoms

- papoose leather slippers (can give you patterns, no sewing involved)

- a fabric world map wall hanging (painted, stencilled, appliqued, or printed), to show them where the swap goodies come from! Fabric will take pins better than the usual paper poster.
Thank you unjugetito!

- A volcano wall hanging organizer or a volcano tote to keep our toy dinosaurs in it

- A cool crafting bag for a boy (yeah right!) with possibly a reference to crochet (still working on the monster purse)

- some themed sheets of paper with slots to put their "housework completed" stickers on, PM me for detail. This is no big deal, they're super easy to print out of your computer, I just don't like making them.

- a bank book to keep track of the tides of the pocket money account, which is only a plastic cup actually, but my son says he really wants some proper bookkeeping for it Smiley

- a Stencilled Lazy Town Pixel shirt; or a knitted Lazy Town Sportacus hat (must be very soft) or knitted scarf or anything Sportacus wears

- fire extinguisher stuffie, or other fireman equipment you could think of, like a knit or crochet striped band to mark dangerous places, or a toy hose etc.

- tool belt

- we're still not fed up with anything glow in the dark Smiley

- Anything themed to their favourite TV shows or movies, or to the Gorillaz

- anything themed or related to soccer, Astrid Lindgren novels, Viking reenactment, trains, cats, or chess


Craft supplies:

- Glow in the dark yarn
- fabric markers
- fabric with cool prints
thanks superhooker!
- more fabric with cool prints

This is my 3rd claim, 1 sent, 1 received


I live in Missouri (USA) with my hubby Matthew and our 2.5 year old son Noah.  I am a SAHM and I love it.  Noah is a very active child and small for his age (wears 18months to 2T clothing).  He loves all things BOY!!!  LMSO  I am hoping to get some things for him to save back for Christmas from this swap!!!! NOAH HAS HIS OWN WIST!!!!  www.wists.com/taco

Noah loves anything Thomas train, Cars the movie, Mickey Mouse, Handy Manny, and John Deere.  His bedroom is all in John Deere.   

Anything with a cat too.  One of his favorite words!!!  So a stuffed cat would be awesome.

A crocheted pirate hat like on Noah's wist.  (Thank you to RubyCopperhead for the bumble bee one on the way!!)

A crocheted or stuffed animal as shown on his wist.  (He loves the elephant)

I claim missgabbielynn for a cute apron for when he is helping mommy in the kitchen.
(I really wanted to claim for a crayon scarf, since last round I found a cute free pattern for them, but I promised myself I would take a break from crocheting for swaps... we'll see how long this lasts...)
This is my 3rd claim, 1 sent, 1 received.

I am a SAHM (atm, however I am currently looking for a parttime job, bleh) of 1 darling little boy who is 3 years old.  We live in North Carolina, USA.

Quentin - 3 year old boy
Currently wears size 3T/4T in shirts and 2T in pants (he is tall and skinny/long torso, 38in.tall/30lbs), size 7.5 in toddler shoes.  If you need actual measurements let me know. 
Loves Thomas/trains, cars (ie-HotWheels), SuperWhy, Clifford, Lazytown, Dora/Diego, Blue's Clues, Mario Bros/MarioKart, RockBand, pirates, dinosaurs, space/rockets (and lots of other things, just ask, he probably likes it)  OMG, I can't believe I almost forgot Spiderman!
Also enjoys cheese (in many wonderous forms, from quesadilas to cubes), cookies, ice cream, chocolate milk and fruit snacks.  (I promise he doesn't just eat these things, they are just on the top of the list of things he wants when I ask him what he wants for whatever meal)
Also likes trying to ride his new tricycle, running in circles around the house, gymnastics class, and "playing" soccer.
Likes watching KC Chiefs football with his daddy and grandpa every Sunday (they all have matching jerseys, it's really quite adorable).  Also UNC Tarheel basketball is big in this house.  (He also has a KU-Jayhawks grandpa and an UGA-Bulldogs grandpa pulling him in their directions, haha).
He doesn't really have a favorite color (at least not one that he will tell me, he just starts naming all the colors he knows), sticking to boy appropriate colors would be best (so no pinks or purples).

---------------------------------------------------------

Play Food/Play Kitchen items - I (with the help of my woodworking older brother) am converting a set of old bedside tables into a play kitchen for Christmas... so I will be needing play kitchen (pots/pans/utensils/apron/hotpads/etc...) and food items, I have a whole booklet that I printed out of crocheted foods but I haven't had a chance to get them started.  Crocheted/felt/etc... please no faces on the items, there's nothing weirder than pretending to cook and eat foods that have cute/funny faces.

Awesome shirts (long sleeve and short sleeve) or hoodie - please no iron ons (they do not last in my wash and my kiddo picks at anything that he thinks is a sticker) - in any of his favorite things or check out the examples on his wist (link below, and yes I made my kid his own wist, haha)

Lounge pants/PJs in fabrics in his favorite things or some Christmas ones (I've even seen Thomas Christmas fabric!). 

Art for bedroom/bathroom (painting/embroidery/fabric/etc) - Bedroom is transportation themed, bathroom is monkeys/jungle.  (Here is a link to my flickr set with pictures of both rooms-the only thing that is different now other than furniture being moved around is the Thomas curtain on the window, it's posted on here- http://www.flickr.com/photos/amystagner/sets/72157603919027797/)

Transportation themed (or Thomas themed) Bedding... blanket/quilt/sheets/pillowcases (please no fleece blankets, he has like 5 of them now)... twin sized.

This is a biggie, but this thing is just too cool, so I thought why not, I can't seem to figure out how to make it... http://www.shopatron.com/product/product_id=BOO801/514.0

Knit socks!  I just love knit socks but I can't knit myself and crocheted socks aren't as nice looking (at least not any patterns that I have seen, if you know of any please send me links).

Sewing/crocheting patterns for infants/toddlers/boys/girls (we plan on having at least one more, it might be a little while, but I have been collecting patterns so I will be ready when we do)

Mario (as in the Nintendo Mario bros) amigurumi - snugglably sized.

A set of cute/fun magnets (he has one of those magnet/dryerase/chalkboard easels) to play with (puzzles, alphabets, cars/trains/planes, etc...) 

Fabric in any of his favorite themes or other boyish prints (no baseball prints though please...) (cotton, fleece, flannel, any kind!)

------------------------------------------------------------
