I claim oneredboot for an obi belt.

3rd claim, 2 sent, 1 received

My name is Eva and Im from Germany. Im a 26-year old trainee teacher at secondary school. In my free time I work with kids in church. Thats why I dabble in many different crafts to find new ideas for the kids. But I really enjoy felting, stencilling and sewing. I like natural and bright colours (green, brown, violet, teal) and natural materials like wool or wood. Unfortunately Im allergic to cat hair.

My wishlist (check out my wists for more inspiration: http://www.wists.com/Ewulotta)

Handmade soap (especially with sheep or goat milk) Thanks Burgz!
Body scrubs
Hand-knitted socks (mustard yellow would be a nice colour, striped would be perfect)
Hand-knitted hat (for my sister, a black angora one with small beads or like this one http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18680839&ref=cat3_gallery_18)
Crocheted floral scarf (teal or purple)
Oilcloth lunchbag (with polka dots or stripes, for my long days at school)
Jewellery-/ earring holder (a framed one that would hold earrings and necklaces, like this one http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=27093634)
Wire wrapped ring (I really adore those ones I have seen, but Im not talented enough)
Simple Blank Notecards (which I could use for any occasion, linocut, stamped or embellished) Thanks mcook72677!
Custom Rubber Stamps (with flowers or birdies and my name)
Decorated paper clips
Ballet flats (sewn or crocheted like these https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=274990.0 or http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=27701665)
Decorated headbands (trim, either fabric or embellished with decent crochet flowers)
Placemats (a set of 4 would be great, either appliqud or embroidered with flowers, trees, stripes or dots, brown, teal and/or purple)
Reading pillow (or rather a reading pillow case to keep shipping costs low)
Wisty surprise

Beads (poly clay, glass, wooden)
Roving (hand-dyed would be really nice)
Fabric (Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, or any Free Spirit, those are difficult to find in Germany)
Freezer Paper (I cant get freezer paper here in Germany and its so convenient for stencilling)
Scrapbooking Paper

Crafting books or magazines
Sewing magazines

Thanks whoever claims me!

I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

I'm going to claim Ewulotta for a wire-wrapped ring, decorated headband, and a wisty surprise!

6th claim, 0 sent, 4 received, 1 pending

My name is Claire, I'm 25 and I live in New Jersey. I work at an engineering publishing company... I'm a vegetarian, I do yoga, LOVE animals (especially cats), and anything bohemian/indie. My favorite colors are blue, orange, teal and green. No allergies but can't stand the feel of velvet, and chocolate totally grosses me out. I definitely have craft-ADD - i love learning new crafts but recently I've been on a crocheting-sewing-jewelry-ATC kick.

Anything else you would like to know about me, PM away!

BIG wishes BOLD

- Funky/strange jewelry (vintage, indie, steampunk) <--thanks PFD and riario!
- A Tree of Life pendant for my sister!
- peacock feather headband (I think Banga made one for somebody last round... it was gorgeous!)
- T-shirt/tank with: The Shins (see link below!), a teacup, or one that says "Make tea not war"
http://www.theshins.com/ <-- LOVE the design of their album, Wincing the Night Away (the black/cream design)
- T-shirt/tank with a bleached design (examples on my wist!) maybe a bicycle? that would be awesome
- Aladdin pants - i bought a pair when i was in Lisbon last summer and can't seem to find them anywhere else! I would LOVE a pair in olive green or black:
- Thread catcher for my sewing machine
- Embroidered/painted pillow case(s) (maybe a day of the dead skull? or i remember seeing one with an octopus tentacle... so cool!)
- A painted vase for my flowers - doesn't have to be a big one
- Flower pots! I started growing bamboo and aloe and would love little pots/jars to put them in
- A large, wide bag/purse for the fall (wider rather than deeper, does that make sense??) in Fall colors Cheesy
- BUNNY HOODIE! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=298030.0 I'm sure i'm way too old for this, but whatever, its cute! cotton/jersey would be perfect (i don't like velour) You could even alter an existing hoodie ... i <3 upcycling!
- A vest! made out of jersey material would be awesome ... any color, but i wear a lot of browns, greens, blues, and black
- Bicycle stamp/stencil or anything bicycle related
- Along the same lines: Vespa stamp/stencil http://www.vespa.com/
- A totoro! (ami, stuffie, painting) for my sister
- A stuffed bunny with LOOOOONG ears (ami, plush, fabric, anything)
- Decorated picture frames (buttons, collaged, random whimsy, etc!) <--thanks ewulotta!
- Painted cork-board for my new cube (yay new job!) maybe something with trees/birds
- Fabric tags that I can sew into my creations (bags, clothes, etc) that say something like "Handmade by Claire" or even just "Handmade by" and I can write in my name hehe
- I've made dozens for other people but a crochet hook case/roll
- Again, made them for others but never for myself: a sewing machine cover for Penelope (my Singer)
- A jewelry holder - could be a metal stand, picture frame, or a wooden case- anything to help me organize! I would LOVE something for all of my bracelets, especially!
- A set of reusable utensils to bring to work with a roll of some sort for transportation/storage
- Embellished/altered shoes! "converse" sneakers or flats size 5.5 - 6 in women's (US) Like these! (i love the color too) http://www.wists.com/claire313/4d55402816403fb67c7e0d1d85b291e1?offset=20
- Its that time again kids... LEGWARMERS!!! http://www.wists.com/claire313/70a8d8ed4fffd22b6a5bbfc701ea8dc5?offset=60

Supplies: (thanks to everyone who has sent/is sending me supplies! I can always use more ) I am totally down for all-supplies packages, too

- I'd love to try to learn embroidery (the right way, not how i've been doing it haha) so maybe an embroidery starter kit? I like those sublime stitching patterns I've seen... directions would be great, too!
- Jar-o-Whimsy (bc who doesn't love a jar of delightfulness??)
- Metal rings I could use to make belts with (does that make sense? just plain metal rings I can sew into fabric belts..)
- rubber stamps/ink pads (i love nature themes like trees, flowers, animals, or something strange like a zombie haha)

- Bamboo crochet hooks (any size Smiley )


- Old post cards or some from your area!
- Cool picture frames in cool colors/shapes
- Old maps! Italy, Portugal, any city from around the world
- TEA! Your favorite kinds are welcome
- ANYTHING tea related - charms, images, etc
- Crafting books (I'm mostly into sewing, crochet, and jewelry making at this point..)
- Something unique to your area: candy (except chocolate), postcards, etc
- Your ATCs

Anything you can think of that might relate to the lists above would be super too ... AND I just started a wist!

I will claim claire313 for legwarmers, tea, and whatever else I can fit in the box Smiley
This is my 5th claim, 3 received, 1 in progress!

About Me: I'm 29 and I'm in MI, finally settled after 4 moves in less than 2 years! I'm currently living thrifty as a High School English teacher, trying to control my baby fever and my homesickness, and reading lots of books. I love chocolate, the ocean and the beach, books, live music, thrifting, vintage, shiny things, and soft things. I love tights and knee socks (jewel tones or neutrals are great, textured, ribbed, argyle, striped whatever as long as they are not fluorescent!), I collect recipe cards, old handkerchiefs, tea cups, ephemera, vintage scarves, old books, and aprons. There is a lot more info in my blog (see the link in my signature!)

Crafted stuff:
- A wine diary. This is a book where I can jot down the name of a wine, place and year of the vintage, some notes on taste impressions, etc and maybe a place to paste a label! http://www.amazon.com/Wine-Journal-Companion-Lovers/dp/0811865606/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1250199985&sr=8-2 Thanks Melissa!
- Cloth napkins and/or placemats. White, butter yellow, cream, chocolate, and turquoise in any combo works for me! (Thanks oneredboot, but I am certainly  open to receiving more sets!)
- A unisex baby quilt with fabric like Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, Freshcut etc. No need for real designer labels, its just an idea of styles I like.
- Vintage Halloween items like a banner/garland, tea towels, napkins, table cloths and runners, shrines, etc. (check out the Vintage Halloween Swaps for ideas! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=196885.0)The lovely frosty is making me something in this category, but more is welcome!
- Scrabble tile covers for throw pillows with the letter "s", "e", and/or "j"  http://www.geekologie.com/2007/04/spell_words_with_scrabble_sofa.php
- A shawl (who knows, maybe one of you is super fast? Tongue https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=147576.0)
- A necklace like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/vasiliisa/2918853535/ with a chicken, goldfish, or Shakespeare!
- A big circle scarf in a jewel tone (like the ones at AA! I also saw a tute here someplace! http://store.americanapparel.net/circle-scarf.html) Thanks Euwlotta!
- A matryoshhka brooch (this one is cool! http://www.flickr.com/photos/vasiliisa/3177818254/in/set-72157594249878925/) one with dolls hanging vertically would work too!
- Book plates or a book plate rubber stamp in any kind of zetti or vintage style, nothing cutesy or country please.

If you would like to make me something wearable, please PM me for measurements and specifics Smiley
- An AA style tube dress: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=114872.0
- A tee shirt shrug: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/tshirt_shrug

http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/t_shirt_recon (I have tons more on my wist for inspiration!)
- Screenprinted or stenciled tees (size medium, V neck or scoop neck, and again, you can check my wist for ideas)
- A wide waist belt in yellow, red, or any jewel tone
- A hanging plastic bag holder in a fun fabric or pretty color crochet http://www.flickr.com/photos/krakencrafts/3790305470/
- Anyone computer/photoshop savvy? I need a banner/buttons/biz cards for my blog and upcoming etsy shop! I'd love to collaborate with somebody who knows how to create them.
-I'm dying for a pom pom hat like the one worn by Zooey Deschanel in the movie Elf. Why oh why can't I find a still of this?

- A lino cutting kit with instructions
- Any how-to or sugar art kits, books, and supplies (think sculpy, but edible!)
- A rubber stamp carving kit
- A tie dye kit for the little ones I nanny for (they are 4, 6, and Cool

- Bakers twine and/or boxes/bags/wraps for packaging baked goods
- Canning jars in any shapes/sizes

- any issues of Crap Hound! Even photocopies of your issues work for me! http://www.boingboing.net/2005/07/24/crap-hound-seminal-c.html
- Vintage ephemera, text pages from old books, especially foreign languages (think crumbly old, not 80's old Smiley)
- Blank card and envelope sets for embellishing (like the boxed or packaged cards you can buy at craft stores)

- Coffee and Tea, loose or bags
