My name is Michelle and I live in North Carolina.

I claim padfoot for a supply package including new fabric ( no destash so I'll pm for choices from list) and other supplies


My name is Teresa.  I live in Ga. with my wonderful hubby of 30 years and our two grown daughters ( who have both returned to the nest to finish their educations).  I have a grown stepson and am Mimi to a 13 year old boy and 7 year old girl.   We share our little homestead with a pet cow, mini donkey ( he's something of a cute bully), three pygmy goats, and six cats.

I use swaps to collect OOAK gifts for my friends and family so my wist reflects quite a variety of tastes.  Please read tags/notes carefully if you choose something wisty for color preferences, sizes, etc.  I am completely okay with you taking something from my wist and making it in your favorite medium rather than the one pictured.  I can't tolerate the smell of smoke or lavender.


Enormous Wish Clothing for an 18" doll like the American Girl dolls.  There are examples on my wist, but I would be thrilled with anything you chose to make.  Accessories like hats and purses would be welcome too.  Luckdragon claimed me for a couple of things!!!, but I desperately want more.  If you choose to claim me for this, pm me so we can discuss what's already being made.  Thanks!

Huge Wish   A book safe made from one of the classics ( maybe a damaged one or one of those really cheap ones you can get now)

handmade thank you cards in any of these themes:  bees, bugs, crayons, cute cats, cute mushrooms
colorful polka dots and/or stripes

bee themed hanging plastic bag holder (prefer pretty/realistic print to cute)

cat crinkle sack covered in one of these themes:  skulls ( sugar skulls or real looking ones), sushi, pirates, Arsenal soccer, or just black and white

Mega Huge Wish!Anything Arsenal themed... really, anything!

yoga pants in women's size 2.  Any color, any style

beaded tree sculpture ( not jewelry) in amber/orange/brown (small, even tiny is fine)

cat tent that looks "piratey"

black scoodie in fleece with hood part lined in something silky so my hair won't get crazy.  I would want silky inside black as well

sz. 2 blue and white polka dot swirly skirt ( for a 5' tall woman) ( simple is great, doesn't need to be super swirly, just have a bit of swish in it)

sz. 51/2 mukluks with fake leather soles ( looking for that speed knitter again)

Big Wish a set of fabric coasters in cranberry, dark green, and possibly cream ( simple is best)

An altered journal in a world geography theme.  I know almost nothing on the subject and feel that it's time to do something about that.  I intend to teach myself and since its such an extensive subject, it would need to be a kind of large journal/notebook.

A little sock monkey fan pull.  I've never seen one but would love to have one for my daughter.  I'm assuming it would ceramic or maybe poly clay? 

A large, simple duffle bag with a zipper.  Even though the size should be large, I only want a very simple one.  Pockets are not necessary if you'd rather skip them.  Would love a medium to heavy weight fabric in a pretty blue print ( polka dots would be a plus).  Would love adjustable straps but if you don't want to mess with them, just make the straps a little shorter than normal. 


Thread Heaven
silk embroidery floss ( I realize this is expensive so a teeny little package would be great!)
one of those needlework magnifiers that hang around the neck ( used is great)
wood-look plastic embroidery hoops, especially ovals
wool felt ( scraps are fine, its for a penny rug) (I really want wool felt, not felted wool.. does that make sense?)
any Japanese craft book ( except crochet)
bias tape makers
Enormous Wish  any knitting or weaving loom ( any size, made of anything) ( I now have the small oval knifty knitter that makes socks so any others)
sublime stitching transfers for hand embroidery ( monkey love, zombies, or vital organs) ( It's okay if you've used a couple of the patterns and just send me what you didn't use from the package)
transfer pens
all purpose thread ( new please) (no black, white, blue, green or pink)
buttons in greens and fall colors only
stabilizer for embroidery projects
any mod podge or your favorite fixatives and/or sealants
any supplies to help me get started with quilling or resin casting


vintage children's books
Bunny Suicide anything
cat toys/treats
gluten free treats ( people treats, not cat   Smiley)

Thank you so much for claiming me!

I claim gamemom42 for 18 American Girl doll clothes!


I live in New England (USA) in an old house (1771) in the country with my two teen-aged sons and two cats.  It's a small house so I generally prefer things that are functional or useful as well as decorative, and smaller is usually better than larger.  I enjoy vintage, primitive, folk art, organic (as in nature/natural), and whimsical.

I love found or altered objects so re-using, recycling, and re-purposing are all high on my list of good things!  Tramp art (http://www.amesgallery.com/FolkArtPages/Tramp.html) is also something Im fond of.   I like things that combine mechanical gadgets, Victoriana and natural history as in steampunkery.  Favored colors are earth-, sea-, or general nature-tones (sea glass colors, jewel tones and milk paint colors), not so much the neons and pastels.  I love designs that include birds, animals, insects, trees, rocksrealistic rather than cutesy.  Steam trains and retro-50s rocket ships & science fiction are also fun (Journey to the Mushroom Planet sort of thing).

I work in a high school library and seem to be a life-long student myself so journals, writing supplies, note cards and reading or book-related projects are all possibilities.  I love polymer clay things especially the new metallic type Ive seen used for steampunk charms.

Dont care for the smell of smoke.  No sheep wool or lanolin ingredients in anything that would be worn or put on my skin (like lotions or soaps); wool for embroidery or crafting is OK.  Food allergies below under "extras."

I claim atsuko for handknit socks for her mom (size 9)

This is my 2nd claim with 1 sent and 0 received.

My name is Karrie and I live in Canada.  I've been with hubby for 13 yrs and we have 2 little ones (who are growing up so! fast)  Daughter is 5 and son is 3.  I work at home making wedding stationery, so I get to craft every day!  I've recently fallen BACk in love with sewing and knitting.  

My tastes are usually clean and simple - classic, timeless - but I really like things that are just stinkin' cute, too!  I love all colors, but my favorites tend to be a deep chocolate brown, bright turquoise, hot pink and bright turquoise green.  Having said that, I mostly wear black and charcoal.    I'm a walking contradiction!  But I'm not too fond of neon at all...  I love cute owls, funky trees and cool mod patterns.  Really don't like floral prints unless they are mod.  I also like eye-catching geometric patterns, too - and really like dark solids with bright pops of color.

I have changed everything over from my wists to Pinterest.com, you'll get a good idea of things I like in there...  I've dedicated a whole board to fabrics that catch my eye...

I am allergic to cats and angora - they both make me red, and itchy with crazy red, watery eyes!  Not fun.  

So on to my list!

 -> Insulated lunch bags, sandwich bags, etc in a theme (looking for Cat in the Hat or Construction Vehicles for my son, looking for anything uber-Girlie for my daugther, anything masculine for the hubby, and anything mod for myself)

 -> Any type of skirt for myself - PM me for measurements, including length.

 -> Any type of skirt or dress for my daughter - children's size 6.  The more girlie, the better!

 ->  I would love some owl jammy pants - brown background with bright, cute owls preferable.  PM me for size.

 ->  I'd love a mod laptop sleeve - one that's really plump.  Prefer chocolate and pink -- I've got a huge laptop, so PM me for measurements!

 ->  A tabletop ironing pad

Stencil or Appliqu
 -> Any t-shirt like Sheldon wears in Big Bang Theory would be awesome!  Ladies' FITTED Size L.

 ->  Boy's size 3 shirt with a mighty machine (any kind of construction vehicle) on it for my son.

 ->  Girl's size 6 shirt with anything girly for my daughter (flowers, etc...)

 -> Another tree of life pendant with green beads, this time for my mom!  She absolutely adores mine (thanks atsuko!)

 -> A loaded charm/bead bracelet like this one, but in purples & greens, or pinks & greens.  Some matching drop earrings (not too long only about 1") would be cool, too!


 -> I would love yarns - kettle dyed or kool-aid dyed.  The color combinations look so fun!  

 ->  I would love any fabric like these ones - many of my "to do" projects need 2 yards, but fat quarters are awesome too!

 ->  Any vintage dress pattern from 50's, 60's or 70's - preferably in Ladies' Size 10-12, and sizes 8-10!!

 ->  Heavyweight Iron-on interfacing - I am always running out

 ->  Any of these craft books

 ->  Oliver + S patterns - girls' size 6, boys' size 4 --> I do have a few already, so you might want to PM me to find out which ones I've got

 ->  Old shaker knit sweaters in white, women's size L, regular neckline - I have a recon project for these!!

 ->  A soft, fine wool in a charcoal or a cocoa color to make a coat (I would need 3 yards, so if there's a big sale, I would love you forever!)

 ->  Insulated batting for making potholders (can't get that here either)

 ->  Decorative zipper pulls of all kinds (my selection here really sucks)

 ->  Any Amy Butler bag pattern (except the weekender bag - I've already got that one)

Thanks so much for claiming me!
