My last claim for the round, I'd like to claim the black board book and 4 ceramic pendants, more specifically number 1 and 4 from the left on the 2nd row and number 1 and 2 from the left on the 4th row. Hope I got the number of items right.

The things on my list come from a smoke-free environment, but there may be traces of cat allergens on them. Crossed out items are no longer available.

And here's the updated list (hoping the pictures are clearer):

One choice of the following fabric items = 1/2 claim (left to right):

1. Yellow and green striped vintage fabric. I think it has once served as a curtain. Roughly measures 35" x 35" (90 x 90 cm), in some places wider in some places narrower. There is a faint stain on it, about 6" x 6" (15 x 15 cm) big, it may wash away, I haven't attempted to remove it.

2. Gray and black wide striped felted wool cardigan. Missing part of the sleeves and half of one front. Excellent for small felted projects. I made wrist cuffs from part of the sleeves, and embroidered them with red flowers, looks great!

3. Bright Orange very elastic cotton jersey (less yellow than the pic). Tubular shape, measures approximately 15" x 32" (38 x 80 cm). Great for t-shirts, tank tops, tube tops, ribbing for all kinds of garments...

4. Retro fabric/surprise blouse! This is genuine 60's/70's fabric from an old seamstress friend. It is cut out to make a blouse, but can be used for other crafty purposes as well. I suspect there is a center front panel missing, otherwise the back seems unproportionately large compared to the front flaps. Anyway, whether you want to give the (large) blouse a try, use the material for patchwork or anything else, it's an excellent opportunity to get some really neat vintage fabric!

5. Wallet. Hand silk-screened adorable green print featuring little chairs. Lined with lime green felt. Coin compartment + 2 compartments for cards/bills inside. Finishing could be neater, but except for that it's a really neat little wallet.

1/4 claim

Choose one of the following two for 1/4 claim (or both for 1/2):

Left: Bag of whimsies: what you see is what you get (plus a plastic belt buckle that had fallen out of the picture)! A bag full of little trinkets, your imagination sets the boundaries for what these can be crafted into.
Right: 6 gift boxes made from old photos (I can make more of these, 6 giftboxes = 1/4 claim, please specify if you want any theme or special motif and I'll see what I can do).

One choice of the following sewing supplies = 1/4 claim (left to right):

1. Black lace ribbon. Perfect for adding a ruffly lacy finish to your sewing projects. 106" (270 cm).
2. 2 black purse handles in plastic. Inner diameter approximately 4,5" (11 cm).
3. Red and Yellow felted flower brooch and red felted flower with 2 leaves. Hopefully someone can make something fabulous from these!
4. Purple satin ribbon. Water repellent acetate. 1,5" (4 cm) wide. Says 50 yards on the spool, some of it has been used but not much, my guess is that theres at least 30-40 yards left.

1/4 claim: Fake fur, beige. Measures approximately 6" x 16" (16 x 40 cm), but is a curved shape, so the bottom end is slightly longer. I've made a bike saddle warmer from it, and I think, with some clever cutting, there's enough to make one more from this. Or any other fluffy fuzzy craft. (:

One choice of the following jewelry = 1/4 claim:
1. black fimo clay earring (for ordinary sized piercings, no stretching needed) 

2. crochet violet metal wire and white bead bracelet (children's size).

3. 2 button pins

4. dangly earrings

5. brown and green macram bracelet 1/4" wide

6. black with blue/green stones and an egyptian scarab (22", 56 cm)

7. black flat beads (18", 46 cm)

8. red/pink square wooden beads (26,5", 67 cm)

9. black matte seed beads (29", 74 cm)

10. Silver & green beads (38", 96 cm)

11. Bronze, silver & green beads (48", 122 cm).

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or want more details! Smiley
