Hi all!

I live in the rainy northwest, and love nature especially the forest and the ocean.  Blue is my favorite color and has been my whole life, but I also like all jewel tones (green, red, purple).  Besides crafting, I'm really into bellydance, and have recently started expanding my horizons with flamenco and Bollywood dance classes as well! I also enjoy photography and reading, especially fantasy/sci fi and historical fiction. I have a bachelor's degree in anthropology and love art and designs inspired by other cultures, especially the Middle East and India.  I greatly prefer silver over gold.  I have two cats and am allergic to cigarette smoke. 

Crafted wishlist:
Grocery totes
Cat bed(s) the oval fabric ones with fleecy fabric inside, like http://www.buy.com/prod/medium-20-cat-cuddler-pet-bed-black/q/sellerid/16881584/loc/67447/212197194.html
Bellydance jewelry and accessories, especially tribal-looking silver pieces or stuff with peacock feathers!
A loaded charm bracelet in blue and silver
Handspun yarn
Knitted glittens for my husband  the fingerlesss gloves with the mitten part that flips open
Amigurumi fox, squirrel, otter, panda, lamb, deer or zombie (that last one's for my hubby!)

Cute, unique pin cushion

'm KW, and I live in Melbourne! Glorious Melbourne in Australia! GLORIOUS MELBOURNE! City of 4 seasons in one day! Humid yesterday, stinking hot today, thunderstorms and antarctic winds tomorrow!

Seriously - if you're an Aussie or a Kiwi who needs to repair some negative feedback, I'd like to suggest myself as a wonderfully cheap options for postage :p

I'm 31, or something like that, and I do... stuff. I do data entry, I write text books, I provide voice talent, I make spreadsheets, I use the force of Web 2.0 for good, I play rollerderby, I speak 3 languages, I sew, I knit, I embroider, I crochet, I get drunk fairly quickly,

- booty shorts for playing derby in. Something like this in lycra/spandex/something stretchy

- skirts! Short skirts pref, A-line stopping anywhere between mid thigh to just above the knee. This is one I made for myself last year.. damn thing's starting to fall off my hips already.

- tutus. Not necessarily as poofy as this one, but I love it when my skirt is flippy and floofy:

- t-shirts/singlets with wide shoulder straps and my derby name & number on the back. I don't have enough scrimmage tops.

 - Derby Kitbag. This needs to be strong, because it will carry a lot of weight. Straps so I can carry it on my shoulder/across my back. Ventilation a big plus, believe me. It'll need to hold a pair of skates, a helmet, big kneepads, elbow pads, wristguards, mouthguard, and I'd love dedicated spots for skate tools, skate parts, my contact lenses, extra scrimmage tops & water bottle.

 - knee pad covers. Yeah, this is a weird one, but we sometimes skate in venues that don't allow kneepads, so we've got to cover them up. PM me, and I'll go over the specifics.

 - Protective cases and purses for my things like the iPod, the smartphone, camera, the cords and power adapters I carry around with me every day.

 - Something with the chemical symbols for caffeine, capsaicin, or theobromine on them - jewellery or t-shirts are cool

 - stacks of washcloths and sweat moppers also good!!

 - lunchbags/sandwich wraps. Taniquel made me some earlier this year, and they've just gotten more and more useful over time. See here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=334735.msg3911875;topicseen#msg3911875

 - spats. There's an example on my Craftster Favourites list in my profile. I want a pair so bad! Or legwarmers like these: http://www.etsy.com/listing/43690084/leg-warmers?ref=cat2_gallery_29

 - bike basket lining. I'd like a lining (either easily washable or waterproof) for the basket on the back of my bike.

 - armwarmers - from wrist to mid bicep length to wear under elbow pads

 - wisty surprise, maybe?

 - wall art. Communist/socialist themed (think Chinese style stuff) or batik themed, but if you choose batik, please PM me for details, as I like specific designs like parang rusak or mega medung.

 - 5" embroidered hoops, with fave themes OR fave song lyrics.

 - headscarves - crocheted or sewn. Or another Calorimetry (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTcalorimetry.html ) but in a lighter sort of yarn so I can wear it in summer

 - button badges of any of my fave things.

 - waterproof cover for my bike seat.

 - snack bags - ones good for carrying nuts/dried fruits etc or herbal teabags.

 - produce bags, so I don't need to use the plastic ones at the supermarket.

 - I would like a holster or something like that for my sonic screwdriver (Such a sad, sad, pathetic geek...)

 - wide wrist cuffs, kinda punky/industrial aesthetic. I have an awesome one at home made of leather and vinyl, and I'd like more.

- I'd slaughter innocents for this logo: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/05/Ulysses_31_logo.jpg screenprinted onto a tshirt. Size... Hmm... I'm wearing a Threadless Large size if that helps at all. Can provide measurements if you ask. In fact, there's a ton of stuff I'd like screenprinted onto tshirts. I have another logo that a friend designed for me that I'd love to get printed/stencilled on a tee. I'll provide the logo on request.
Also good for printing/stencilling: The logo from Dynasty (the TV show) - black on yellow or something like that
Lyrics from my current favourite songs

Craft Supplies
Aida/linen cloth in 28 or 32 count, approx **measurements to come**. Prefer cream/brown/peachy colours

Wool for a knitting machine, any colour don't care, just want to try to make something with the machine I've had in my loungeroom for years.

Stuff for carving handmade stamps. Got an idea - want to see if I can make it work.

Handkerchiefs I can embroider on. I'd like to step away from using tissues for mucous mopping duties.

Ear threads like these:http://earthreads.com/images-large/esb501-large.jpg
Although preferably with two bar ends, not a bar end and a dangle.

Lots of thin silver chain.

readycut origami paper for lucky star making, or just normal origami paper - preferably with abstract patterns/designs on them, not pictures of things

Wooden embroidery hoops in a range of sizes

Stuff for bagmaking - magnetic clasps, D Rings, loops, buckles, that sort of thing.

Keys popped off from computer keyboards.

This one is sort of a hoping against hope wish, but vintage Lutterloh patterns - like these: http://www.etsy.com/listing/18830803/lutterloh-system-german-pattern-making I bought the system earlier this year, and it's made pattern drafting so nice and simple for me.

Speaking of patterns & such - knitting/sewing patterns for simple summer tops. Only proviso is that they need to look good on someone with smallish bone structure, but massive boobs. (Curse my life, I'm like a 32GG according to my sports bra) So V-shape or wide sort of necklines, straps wide enough to cover up the fabric engineering feat that is my bra, etc etc.

Pieces of foamcore board. Not huge pieces - maybe a couple of 10cm x 10cm squares will be enough for the project I have in mind.

inkpads for stamping

Haberdashery! Especially ZIPS! Interfacing is also good.

Fabric with robots on it. Good robots, not sappy emotional love-hearty cutesy robots.         

You want MORE about me?

I like communism/soviet propaganda, I like cosmonauts and taikonauts and outer space. Rockets and robots are cool. But not those sappy bloody robots with emotion. That's a pile of bull.

I like science-fiction (not fantasy). I like the Doug Anthony Allstars. DAAS Kapital was brilliant. So is Firefly and Doctor Who and Blakes 7 and Logan's Run and Rollerball and so much other stuff....

I like Indonesian traditional arts, especially the batik of Java, and the hanacaraka writing script. Traditional colours of Yogyakarta are browns and whites and blacks, traditional colours of Solo include blue. I pretty much ADORE anything Javanese.

I like rollerderby, but I bloody well HATE the Sublime Stitching rollerderby series. It's awful. My team colours are black and gold, if you ask I'll tell you my derby name & number

I like geek and nerd stuff. I'm a humanities girl, but I try to understand science and physics. I am a big big fan of spreadsheets & diagrams. I also am well versed in internet life & memes and the suchlike.

I like animation - Futurama, Ulysses 31, Chobits, GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka and La Linea. I also like manga, but most of the stuff that people rave about... I don't know it. I like Kimi wa Petto best of anything I've read in the last few years.

I like music, but I haven't really heard anything impressive come out of the States in years - hence, I prefer Australian artists, or people I've heard during my travels. I like Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, Grinderman, Tex Perkins, Cruel Sea, Kate Miller-Heidke, Angie Hart, Luciano Ligabue, Le Vibrazioni, SamSons, Project Pop, Spandau Ballet, Paul McDermott

I like language and swearing and creativity with words and multilingualism and non-Latin writing scripts.

I am the proud owner of a new kitten. His name is Gillespie and he is just bloody adorable.

I hate the following: Harry Potter, Twilight, cupcakes, skulls, holiday-themed stuff, stuff that has images of real people recreated on it, kawaii stuff, cutesy stuff, country themes, harvest themes, Halloween, dogs, cars, non-Australian spelling, cold weather, nature/forest themes, owls, mushrooms, zombies,

If I should die of smallpox
Put my remains in my snuff box
IIIIIII made it myself!!!

So I am from up in Canada, in Southwestern Ontario in a small town surrounded by a beautiful artistic community and a lot of farms.  I have a wonderful Scottie dog, named Peter, and I'm in the midst of starting a Scottie dog ANYTHING collection.  So far I have soaps, some artwork, some ceramic figurines and some Scottie dog pyjamas.  I am also a big fan of artwork, prints, illustrations, doodles and awesome quotes. Colours that I love include blues, greys, purples and burnt orange.  I also love masks.

SO here is my list:

Scottie Dog Paraphernalia Could be:  Bags, ear muffs, rings, necklaces, scarf, gloves, figurines, artwork, collage, journals, cards, hair accessories, boxes, if you think it's cool and it has to do with Scotties, than it will probably be awesome to me.

Artwork: I have some really empty walls in my house! I like all sorts of art - watercolour, oil, prints, cheeky things are best. I could try to describe what kind of art but I am not good at that stuff so Check my wist to see what styles I like.

Masks: I have started a small collection of masks handmade by people all over the world.. I don't like really creepy ones.. or better put my husband doesn't like the really creepy ones, but decorated, bejewelled interesting masks would be great! Hey you know what would be crazy wicked - a scotty dog mask.. hahaha.. that would be crazy..

That's about it. this wishlist seems silly but I am sticking to it.

Hi there! Smiley

My name is Karin, I live in Gothenburg, Sweden where I study at Uni. I am 26 years old, no kids, and I live with my boyfriend of 5 yrs, Keith. I dont wear jewelry and I have a slight cat allergy (though airing out any fabric items should take care of that!). My favorite colors are aqua/turquoise, gray, red, lime/ chartreuse or apple green, cheerful pinks, white, dusty blues. I dont like baby pink/blue, animal prints or neons. Some fave themes include Polka dots, zakka, nature, birds and woodland creatures, vintage themes. My interests include all sorts of crafts and also travelling, reading, writing, politics and current events, volunteer work, movies and TV.

My wishes include things for me (obviously!) but also for my BF and for my niece and nephew.  Keith would love something related to the Hitchhikers Guide, LOTR, NES video games or computer science. My niece Stella likes softies, frogs, horses and Pippi Longstocking. My nephew Albin likes basically anything he can put into his mouth. Cheesy

Crafted wishlist:
- Anything from my wist.
- General use cards/notecards and stationery. Some inspiration here, here and here.
- Knitted or crocheted softie/amigurumi for my nephew (6 months). Here, here and here are some great examples. More ideas on my wist.
- Lavender sachets for my wardrobe.
- A crocheted granny square pillow, pillow cover, tote bag or even blanket (that would be a HUGE wish though!). I love granny squares, especially cheerful colorful ones with white, cream or black edges.
- A patchwork potholder or pillow cover. Here, here and here are some lovely log cabins.
- Scented candles, bath bombs or lip balms. I love edible scents like vanilla, chocolate, almonds/nuts, berries and fruits etc. I also love the scent of lilacs and lily-of-the-valley.
- Passport cover (for standard EU passport).
- Black apple doll for my niece.
- A yarn wreath! I love the wreaths by KnockKnocking on flickr.
- A zakka-style tissue cosy.
- A simple place mat (washable/wipeable) for when Im working with paints or collage, to protect our poor living room table...
- Fun or unusual play food for my niece (she has a set of simple fruits and veg from ikea, and she loves it!)
- An ATC album for my ATCs.
- Stenciled t-shirt for the BF (he is skinny but tall and usually wears a slightly fitted men's medium). See above for themes.
- A patchwork pencil case.
- Crochet covered stones!
- A winter theme/non-religious Xmas stocking for my boyfriend.
- Camera cosy for my point-n-shoot (PM me for dimensions!)
- And lastly: I would LOVE LOVE a pair of knitted socks! Especially in red, gray or neutral colors, slightly long so I can wear them in my boots in winter. Doesnt have to be anything fancy! Im a Eur size 39, which translates to about UK 6,5 and US womens 8 I think.

Supplies wishlist:
- A pair of pinking scissors!
- Paper washi tape
- Used or new sewing/crafting/creative magazines and zines. For example Art Journalling, Sommerset Studio, Sommerset Apprentice, Cloth Paper Scissors, Threads, Stitch, Sew Hip, Readymade etc etc.
- A large (1 inch or so) circle or square paper punch. Cant find these where I live!
- Fusible web for machine applique.
- Fabrics!! Cotton solids, polka dots and stripes, linen, Japanese/zakka fabric, Tilda fabric, retro/feedsack prints, cheerful/modern (particularly from Moda). Fabric with words/text. Wool felt, quilt batting. Anything from charm squares and up!
- Sewing machine thread in bright colors.
- Altered journal supplies! Would LOVE to receive pens (white paint pen, sharpie of any color, sakura, micron, pitt etc), fluid acrylics, inks, watercolors etc. That would be a huge wish though!
- Clear quilters ruler

Hello! I'm Louise, I'm 22 and I come from not so sunny England! I have no allergies but regretfully I can't use lovely scented bath stuff (bubblebath/bath bombs etc) but I am always open to soaps and lipbalms (my favourite smells are vanilla, cocoa, shea butter!).

Things I like!
I like anything old to new. LOVE beautiful dusky floral prints, lace and fabrics.

I'm currently pimping out my NEW craft room.. it's still a work in progress but I want to make it a beautiful and encouraging area to get me motivated! Anything that would help with organising/storage/writing/inspiring me etc would be super useful!

Colour combinations I adore!
  • dusky pale pinks with antiqued golden metallics
  • turquoise and gold
  • dusky pink, tan and cream
  • cream and gold
  • anything pastel and lovely!

Crafted items I'd ADORE!:

  • vintage fabric scraps
  • lace
  • buttons
  • chunky beads
  • rubber stamps (non-specific to any occasion!)
  • jewellery making supplies
  • old keys or small metal objects that can be incorporated into jewellery or artwork

Of course, my wists is absolutely stuffed full of loveliness that I'd love to own someday, so feel free to take a peek and see if there's anything you're able to make that's in there!

About Me
33 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats.
  • My favorite colors are jewel tones (like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber) or earth tones (like greens/browns together).
  • My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy.
  • My favorite colors for shirts/clothes are browns, greens, purples, and both heather and charcoal greys.
  • I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together
  • I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.)
  • My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes.
  • My favorite flower is the Daffodil.
  • My favorite hobbies include: reading, photography and I love all things Disney!

I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.

Crafty Wishes

-- Nook cover! I like this style a lot. (Also, like the one by mimiw! I got a regular Nook (NOT nook color) for Christmas and I'd like some cases! I put some fabric examples and such here and some here for fabric inspiration ideas.

 -- A Lapboard I really need a new one. Something comfy so I can use my heavy laptop on the couch more comfortably. I like this one a lot but it wouldn't have to be that exact color/fabric. Just the style is really useful.

   -- A Day Tote/Weekender Bag. There's not a thing I don't love about this one for example, but it could be in different fabrics of similar colors for example. It looks sturdy and says it has pockets and the shape is really lovely. I also really like this one which would be a lovely weekender bag since I don't own any luggage. And of course, Amy Butler's pattern is neat but it wouldn't have to be in her fabric.

 -- A simple robe. I really like this style. Doesn't have to be exactly like that but I like the Japanese/Asian/Cherry Blossom influence, but it could be other colors/patterns that I like as well. Doesn't need to be form-fitting, can be a little roomy just not too oversized. (A little roomy is fine.) I'm generally a US size 4.

 -- Greek Goddess Halloween Costume like this. I LOVE this costume and it would be awesome to have it made for me and my measurements (which I can provide!) instead of buying one off the shelf that never fits! Wink

 --  A Cozy Winter Summer Wrap like this thread BUT lightweight. I have the most awesome warm version already but I'd love a lighter weight version for wearing in chilly air conditioning like at work as well. It's hot outside but sometimes a touch chilly inside. Not enough for a jacket, but enough your arms are a little cold.  (tutorial here) Some neutral color/pattern (grey, white, beige, etc.) would probably be easiest to wear a lot.

 -- Fabric buckets like this! I have a great project bag now I use for my jewelry tools, but...I could use another! (Or more!) I do most of my beading/crafting on the couch and it's nice to stash things away in something like this.

 -- Cute "Rockabilly" Style Dress I LOVE this style but obviously in adult size. And no pink please, it doesn't look good on me. I wear a US size 4 and could send more specific measurements too. I just love how fun and flirty it is!

 -- Kitchenaid Stand Mixer Cover. I've got a few examples of ones I like here. Mine's the "Classic" style.

 -- Any sewn wist item You can see all the sewing items I've wisted here.

Knitting & Crochet
-- Cable Knit Fingerless Gloves. I love the color, the cable (I love cable!!) and the fact they're a soft acrylic for easy care. Yes please!! (Please note, I have tiny wrists - like 5.5" - so aim for small width please!)

 -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. There are some wisted here for inspiration. (And yes, thick ones for around the house are perfect too!)

 -- A cable knit bag. I really like cable knit and I think this bag is really cool.

 -- Any knitted wist items. You can see all the wisted knit items here.

-- Batik/Dyed / "Shibori-Dyed" Fitted Tee Shirts Like above, short sleeve, 3/4 or long sleeve is fine so long as it's fitted. I like styles like THESE in my wists. I especially love the flame style one but really like this type of look a lot. It''s different from the shirts I typically wear and I like that. (Please just no hippie/Grateful Dead rainbow style tie dye. Nothing against hippies but it's just not my personal preference.)

 --  Fitted Style Tee Shirts. Short sleeve, 3/4 length or long sleeve. Fitted in V-neck, scoop or whatever (just nothing that's so low cut it requires another shirt underneath) in size small or US 4 equivalent. (I like the ones from Target a lot but am open to others too!) I have received a ton and I love them but I also live in fitted tees and more are always welcome. I have a bunch of styles I love WISTED for inspiration.

 -- Phoenix-colored Necklace just like this. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this piece. It's beautiful colors, it's in silver, it's just perfect. I so want this. Yes, I make jewelry but it'd be nice to have something beautiful like this made for me for a change! Wink

 --  Stained Glass Item - sun catcher, nightlight, glass mosaic item, etc. Anything! I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself. I have a wall of sliding glass doors and would love to put up something pretty there! (HERE are some I've wisted for inspiration/ideas.)

 --  Ceramic/pottery tea mug, oversized mug, or cereal bowl (I eat cereal every single day!) or anything like that. Again, a skill I don't have but really love. (HERE are a couple things I've wisted for inspiration.)

 --  Anything with a phoenix. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items as inspiration.

 -- Anything inspired by Back to the Future It's totally my favorite movie trilogy. BttF shirts, ami's of Marty or Doc,  items with DeLorean on it, etc. There aren't really a lot of crafted things out there which people have already made but I think there's a lot which could be done!

 -- Calvin and Hobbes Items. Similar as above. There was a Calvin and Hobbes swap here on Craftster awhile back and the items in the gallery were stunning.

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists or my amazon wishlist, my etsy favorites, the colors I like, my favorite animals, or my favorite flower, etc. and see what you can make that you think I'd like! I KEEP MY WISTS UPDATED SO IF IT'S ON THE LIST, I WANT IT! Cheesy

Craft Supplies
-- Jewelry Presentation Displays I have one in black but I desperately need a necklace one in WHITE for photographing my work. I could also use a necklace/earring combo and a bracelet hand. Used ones in good shape are fine too! Any kind of leather/leatherette/vinyl is awesome. These are examples of styles I like and could REALLY use:
 - Simple Necklace: Display, necklace, leatherette, white, 10x8 inches
 - Fancier Necklace/Earrings: Display, necklace/earring, frosted acrylic
 - Another Fancier Necklace/Earrings: Display, Venus figure, opaque white, 12 x 8-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches
 - Ring/Bracelet Display, acrylic, clear frosted, 7-1/4 x 4-1/2 x 3 inch hand

 -- Gemstone Beads I'd love to use more faceted, briolette and other cut stones. Here are some I really am coveting.
(Listings shown are just for example of the stone. Can easily be smaller quantities for more reasonable cost!)
 - Any gems on my Etsy favorites - Bunches listed here
 -Chrome Diopside Beads - Especially teardrops or briolettes or rondelles would be nice. Example
 - Mexican Fire Opal Rondelle Beads - example or example
 - Hesonite Garnet - example
 - Sapphire Rondelle Beads - In a red/orange/yellow combo. example or example

 -- A sewing basket. You know, classic little box with a handle to store my growing collection of threads, notions, scissors, etc. Like this idea/ or this one. Doesn't have to be that fabric or anything but that idea. Right now, all my stuff is just piled up in a mess on my desk.

  -- Mini Cake Pans. How cute are these? I don't know that I *need* them per se, but they're just so darn fun.

 -- Lampwork beads. Love. Wish I could make but I''m too scared of open flame. Cheesy

 -- Dichroic Glass Beads I love this mix for example. So pretty!

 -- Beading supplies. I create jewelry so I'm always looking for unique and interesting pendants, charms, gemstone beads, large focal beads and such. Also, I love Swarovski crystal and any 16, 22 or 24 gauge wire is in any color is always useful. (Especially if it's silver-plated!) The Artistic Wire brand is my favorite.

 -- Ninja Men Cookie Cutters. OMG, how freakin' awesome are these???

 --  Grin Puffy Heart Pendant Instructions/Kit I've wanted to learn how to make this forever! Bonus would be if I had some of the materials needed as well like the stringing material. There's a full kit HERE and another HERE which is totally helpful and even more awesome!!

 -- Button Maker I think it'd be fun to make my own buttons. Some sort of starter kit would be great. I've never made any before. Can totally be used/pre-owned!


 -- Tea! Especially fruity ones. (Caffeinated ones are fine too for my morning cup at work!)
 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.
 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)
 -- Pineapple anything so long as it does NOT have coconut in it. (Candy, snacks, candles, body spray, etc.) Finding pure, straight pineapple is so hard!
 -- Beading/Wire-Wrapping/Jewelry magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)

Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin

Hi!  I live in Michigan with a husband, 2 kids and 1 cat. Smiley  I like a variety of things and am not too picky. I do have asthma so no flowery scents or things like patchouli.  I love jewel tones and darker colors, I don't care for orange or yellow much.  I'm a constant reader and will read just about anything to try it.  I'm a big fan of Harry Potter, but not Twilight. Wink  Thanks in advance!

Crafted Items:

stenciled shirt - there's lots on my wist and I can give ideas too.  I wear a Large if loose fit, XLarge if fitted (prefer fitted)

Necklaces and Earrings - Victorian inspired!

PJ Pants - cute patterns of just about anything Smiley  I usually need a large

Purse - smallish, across body strap, big enough for: ID, bank card, phone, pen, inhaler, epipen business card holder and chapstick at least.

knit/crochet hats

wallet - coin section on the outside please

scoodie - sewn please

altered journal

skirt - girly and cute

altered doll - I would love a steampunk Alice in Wonderland!

fingerless gloves - the kind with fingers but no fingertips


book cover - hardcover or paperback size

pot handle covers - quilted dealie for the handle of cast iron pots and pans, so you don't get burned

pencil roll

easy patterns for dresses/skirts/tops

little animals like you get out of a gum machine - I put them on my desk for the students to play with while we talk. Cheesy  I have a llama, cow, 2 dogs and a dala horse.

I do have a wist chockful of things:  www.wists.com/SevsOnlyGirl and I just started a Pinterest, but it's tiny still.
