Organizers: TwiztidBlood and sunspotted

*IMPORTANT PM INFO*: When sending PMs, please label them as OWS 49 with one of the following tags:

So when sending the questionnaire, the subject will read OWS 49 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 47.

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.

( the medium can be a couple small items etc as long as it adds up to a medium )
( A medium item equals two hours of crafting time or 20$ worth of store bought items )

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
- did not follow item amount rule

Previous Swap Rounds:
If you are confused in any way by how this works, please look at some previous rounds:


TwiztidBlood - Will be your organizer, in charge of your claims, your sends and your receives, and your approval.
sunspotted - Will be co-organizer, in charge of the discussion thread.

I claim zombiecazz for a spinning fiber and other supplies.

This is my 1st claim, none sent.

I'm in Massachusetts US, I do mostly knit, but I also crochet, spin, and used to cross-stitch, embroider and a little bit of tatting. I like the cooler colors (blues, purples, greens) but a little oomph of the red/orange/yellows doesn't hurt either. Nothing holiday themed please - I like being able to use my things all the time, not just a few weeks a year 

My list, in no particular order (links are examples, not requirements  Cheesy )


decorated (and absorbent) kitchen towels, potholders, etc

swirl pendant necklace ala PhoenixFireDesign (3rd pic here)

reusable grocery bags with long handles or a similar size tote bag

expandable shopping bag  examples here and here

bead tree

a pair of lovebugs

a drawsting pouch with pockets

decorated small notecards (about 3"/8cm square)

pretty 'yarn wrapper' band labels - to wrap around skeins of my handspun with space for writing what kind of fiber, how many yards, etc

cotton soap sack with handmade soaps

handmade soaps/gels/scrubs (not for bathtub soaking though, please)

solid-colored brooomstick skirt - or any not-too-tight-to-walk-in skirt -  in dark-ish neutrals (ex- grey, eggplant, pine, black, navy)

cotton 'pettipants' aka a slip that looks like shorts to wear under skirts

lounge-y shorts/pants (~40" waist)

a snuggie I got one in a swap a few months back, but dh uses it more than I do! Cheesy

slightly bigger than credit-card-size wristlet with outside pocket for ID badge, this idea

crochet-hook book-style zip-close holder for tall hooks. (link is just a pic of the style Im thinking of, its not tall enough-as-is)I have some that are longer than usual so they're are too tall to fit in the other holders I've got. (I think they're about 7" / 18cm long, but I can let you know for sure)

rubik's cube stuffie (this idea)

cloth panty liners or light-flow pads

A pretty, but not really lacy, ladies crocheted/knit/sewn/beadedwire/etc kippah in white or black


Flex knitting needles (they look like circulars that have been cut in half)

anything to help me improve wire-wrapping beading kind of techniques. I'm self-taught and the teacher doesn't always know what's going on Cheesy

learn-to bookbinding kit, supplies, whatever

decorated tatting shuttles (shorter than 3"/7.5cm)

Casein Knitting needles

New Pathways for Sockknitters book by Cat Bordhi
Cool Socks, Warm Feet by Lucy Neatby
The Intentional Spinner
Andean Folk Knits by Marcia Lewandowski
(pre-owned books in good condition are just fine with me)

something from, or based on, my wists   (etsy items are tagged on the wists)

your favorite funny book (please not 'funny by being mean/angry/insulting' kind of funny)
1 1/2" (4cm) cotton fabric squares (any color except neon-bright, and no holiday themes please)
'souvenir' bookmarks from where you are
Chocolate, plain or with nuts (unless you want me to share with the hubby - he likes the mint & fruit-filled chocolates)
tea, hot chocolate mixes

Make Tea, Not War!

I claim ThreadorYarn for a reusable grocery bag and probably something wisty Wink

First claim this round, 0 sent, 0 received

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


- BIG funky jewelry (vintage, indie, steampunk) <--thanks PFD and riario!

- 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)

- 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 pot! I started growing bamboo and aloe and would love little pots/jars to put them in

- A large, wide bag/purse (wider rather than deeper, does that make sense?? haha PM me if you have questions...) 

- 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)

- Altered tees or tanks like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=106867.msg1016302#msg1016302 or this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10284568 (yup, just copied that link right from banga haha)  <--thanks SAHmama! I LOVE the tank! I'd still love anything inspired by these... or from this awesome book:


- A vest! made out of jersey material would be awesome ... any color, but i wear a lot of browns, greens, blues

- black cotton/jersey sundress .. doesn't have to be anything fancy, I can provide a picture & sizing if you're interested!

- wristlet/wallet to hold my phone, lip balm, camera and keys (the essentials!) PM me for sizing, my phone and camera are pretty small
- Bicycle stamp/stencil or anything bicycle related

- Along the same lines: Vespa stamp/stencil http://www.vespa.com/

- Something Day of the Dead! (i can't help it, you guys do awesome DotD stuff!)
*I have this awesome bag that reminds me of sugar skulls and I would totally love a DotD skull pin to put on it (polymer clay, embroidered, anything!) <-- Thanks missmuffcake!

*I got an amazing pillow cover from aeronberry and now my obsession with DotD is full-blown...

- 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!)

- Painted cork-board for my new cube (yay new job!) maybe something with trees/birds and maybe...

- fabric covered pushpins to go with it?  (can be two separate claims, of course)

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!

- Ephemera

- Anything I could use for my ATCs... paper, stamps, glitter, etc
- Watch parts! Yes, it seems I have jumped on the steampunk bandwagon...

- *BIG WISH* rubber stamps/ink pads (i love nature themes like trees, flowers, animals, or something strange like a zombie haha)

- *big wish* Glass beads - any size, color

- Felt beads

- Cool fabric - I just started getting into sewing so my supplies are rather limited (thanks everyone!!)

- Sewing supplies that I don't realize I need (zippers, interfacing, etc) (thanks again everybody!)

- Jewelry making supplies - Jump rings, wire, clasps, etc


- Glass jars to store beads/buttons/random crap in <--thanks kitty vegas!

- Rotary cutter and self-healing mat (can be 2 separate claims)

- anything from (or inspired by) boygirlparty.com


- 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

I claim claire313 for fabric covered push pins and some supplies.

This is my 1st claim, 0 sent, 0 received

I'm 31 and a single mom, I work full time at Bass Pro Shop and I'm going to school full time to be a Respiratory Therapist. When it comes to crafting I'll try anything once, but I've yet to learn to knit or crochet. I love camping and outdoorsy activities. My favorite season is fall and I love Halloween. I also love zombies, monkeys, bugs and the color brown. My favorite color combos are Brown and Aqua, Brown and Pink and Green and Pink.

I'm really not a fan of patchouli or pigs. I'm also a semi-veg, I don't eat beef or pork.

I have a Wist, the link is in my signature, anything wisty would be cool.

I claim mcook72677 for decorated onesies.

1st claim this round, 0 sent, 0 received

My name is Sarah, I live in Chicago, IL, & as my username says, I'm a stay-at-home mom. I used to be a lawyer & will be again.. someday. I have no allergies (but I REALLY dislike cigarette smoke!) & we have 2 dogs (a rescued lab mix & a terrier mutt). I have a son, Cooper, who will be 2 in October & I'm pregnant with a boy that is due in October. My taste is pretty eclectic (just to give you an idea - our bedroom is red, dining room is orange, son's room has a Dr. Seuss mural, guestroom is bright yellow, & living room is a failed attempt at an orange/yellow faux finish that wound up looking like you're in the middle of a bonfire, but it's growing on me). I love bright colors, and orange is my favorite. There aren't really any colors I don't like. I'm not really big on jewelry... I think it's pretty but I just don't wear it (I will wear small post earrings & anklets). I'm pretty open to anything (& not easily offended). I have more info on my profile & you can always check out my blog, wist, or etsy shop. I'm fine with used (quality) items or upcycled/repurposed items. I love batik fabric, whimsical designs (think Mad Hatter) & Dr. Seuss!
Also, I update my wist constantly so theres always new stuff on there.


* Small planner (no larger than 4x5) that I can carry in a diaper bag. Could be paper craft, fabric covered, or whatever, just so long as its a little durable.

* Totally super huge obnoxious wish: Painted, drawn-on, tye-dyed, bleached, or otherwise embellished/decorated Converse All-Stars - Im totally fine with used Converse & I wear a size 7 (9 in womens, but 7 in Converse). Pretty much any creative design would be great, but if it was Dr. Seuss related Id probably pee in my pants from excitement.

* Angel wings like these that I can attach to my Moby wrap (preferably with Velcro or snaps)

* cloth diapers - pocket or AIO. Id like smalls (not newborn) because Id like to cloth diaper my new baby (although Ill probably wimp out & use disposables for the first few weeks) & we only have mediums because we didnt start with cloth until my son was in a medium. Preferably gender neutral, but boy colors/designs would be okay too.

* small (diaper) bag (maybe 12 by 15-ish or something) with pockets; maybe even an external pocket or two on the sides for a sippy cup or bottle of water. Backpack or messenger bag so its easy to carry everywhere.

* address labels and/or business cards for my Etsy shop and/or my Avon business

* really big plushie - nothing in particular.. You can check my wist for stuff I like but I think just about anything is cute when its giant & stuffed (feel free to leave the stuffing out - Im happy to stuff it)

* Something (maybe a throw pillow?) commemorating one of the most important rules my husband & I have in our marriage: "The Rule Of Specific Examples" (basically, we agree that it's difficult to think of specific examples so if in an argument you make a complaint but can't back it up with a specific example then you invoke "the rule of specific examples" & the other can't hold it against you).

* Felt food

* Clothes for my son (shirts - 24 months or large, pants - 18 months) - Ska/punk stuff is great. He loves Elmo, Veggie Tales, & Blue's Clues. Monsters, robots, & animals are good too! (Son sweats easily so no fleece!)

* Baby clothes (boy) - anything cute. Ska/punk stuff is great.

* Big brother, little brother shirts - I think these are cute. I'm fine with anything & creative stuff is great

* Play silks

* Toddler busy book

* Embroidered or painted cloth diapers (pocket or AIO, preferably medium, but well probably use any size). Some examples here and here

* Soap - I dont like patchouli, vanilla, or coffee, but pretty much anything else (fruity or otherwise) is great.

* A surprise (wisty or something Id like)


* snap press (used is fine!)

* furry or fuzzy fabric

* elastic (any size or type)

* fabric - I like bright colors & interesting prints. Amy Butler & Michael Miller type stuff is always great. I love batiks. Flannel is good if it's a children's print or something interesting (to use to make burp cloths).

* felt - any colors

* zippers

* velcro (preferably white & soft)

* polymer clay rolling pin (used is fine!)

* ribbon

* bias tape maker (used is fine!)

* minky fabric - preferably boy or gender neutral colors/designs


* used or thrift clothing with fabric I can use (interesting  prints or textures)
* recipe cards
* fabric scraps
* notecards
* cute maternity tops/tees or shorts/capris in small or medium (good condition used stuff is fine!)
* knee high socks in stripes or interesting colors/prints
* fun lunch/food items - squiggly straws, fun shaped sandwich cutters, popsicle molds, cookie cutters, etc.

Thanks! Smiley

I claim SAHMama for ... Big brother, little brother shirts for her boys!

List coming!

Hello! I'm Sabrina and I live in Florida! I'm a 27 year old SAHM of 5 kiddos, a hubby and a dog! I love to craft everything and love to try new stuff. I'm pretty easy to please, and LOVE getting handmade goodies! I have no allergies that matter when it comes to swapping!

Crafts I would love to receive:

ANYTHING from my wists - use it as inspiration or make something exactly as is! Everything is up to date and has notes on it!
Felt, crochet or knit foods/supplies for the kids play kitchen
Candles- natural colors, red and cream or a mixture of the two would be great colors too. I like nice crisp clean scents, florals are ok too, nothing fruity or cinnamon.
Yummy soaps! I like all kinds of scents so Im good with whatever!
Fabric buckets, in random sizes & colors.
Jars, tins, baskets, buckets, bowls or anything else to help organize all the crap my crafting and 5 kids can accumulate!  Grin Used and redecorated are perfect!
Stuff for the kitchen since we are redecorating!! The colors are cream, red and a touch of grey. (the Amy Butler fabrics I am using are in my wists, I would love it to match those colors but it doesn't have to be her fabric, I know its pricey! lol) Stuff to hang on the walls in the kitchen would be good, bowls, containers, magnets, etc, really I am open to anything!
Crochet or Knit felted bowls - would love some of these in various sizes/colors. Grey, red, cream, or light blue.
Kidlet Bags - these would be awesome for my kidlets to stuff their stuff in! Can be separate claims of course!
Reusuable sandwich bags - trying to get a set for each kiddo So girly stuff mostly but we do have 1 boy!  Wink (these can be separate claims of course) Inspiration here
Reusable lunch bags - again would like one for each kiddo, we have 4 girls and one boy, and I'd like one for hubby too! (these can be separate claims of course) Inspiration here
Stitch markers- for crochet, I am always losing them!
Anything Mickey or Minnie- We are redecorating the babies' room in Mickey & Minnie, so anything would be awesome! Pictures to hang, Pillows, stuffies, anything!  Grin
Cute shirts for the baby girls- 3T or 4T stenciled, embroidered, appliqued, made from scratch, whatever!

Supplies I'd love to play with:

Fabric - I like fun stuff, Amy Butler, Michael Miller, Alexander Henry types (doesn't have to be those names, but I like those styles  Smiley )
polymer clay stuff, tools, clay, whatever
resin molds and supplies
Jewelry making stuff
