I Claim QuiltyKate for a handmade baby dress and some supplies


Hi my name is Melanie and I live in Sydney (west). I am married and have two lovely children- 11 yrs (going on 18! Wink ) and a 4 and 1/2 year old. I work part time and my favourite crafts are sewing, cardmaking and other papercrafts. I love making handbags of any size.

I think I am fairly easy to stalk. I have a pin http://pinterest.com/melmakespretty/ and wist www.wists.com/melmakespretty
My favourite colours are pink, apple green, turquoise and red. I am not a huge fan of autumn colours.
My favourite themes are matryoshkas, owls, birds, trees and leaves, kawai and totoro.
I love vintage florals and sheets. I will admit to being a massive fabric collector and my sisters come fabric shopping at my house first before they ever go to retail shops.

Major wishes.
Anything matryoshka/Russian doll themed. Softies, cushion covers, hoopla, inchies/ATCs, photography prints etc, really, anything at all and I will be a happy girl.

Cushion covers in any of my themes or like this http://www.etsy.com/listing/73834238/flowers-pillow-cover-12x20
A hoopla like this:http://pinterest.com/pin/66724341/
A beanbag cover in black and white polkadots or any sturdy fabric you think I might like. http://www.lincraft.com.au/view_project.php?id=9
Some fold up grocery bags.
Bunting in Blue and red for my son's room- He loves cars and trains.
A Mug rug.
Christmas ornaments -that look like trees. there are a few ideas here: http://pinterest.com/melmakespretty/falalalala/
Owl softies or stuffies, and style for my daughter.

Totoro http://www.etsy.com/listing/81472044/baby-totoro-handmade-crocheted
Flowers in different colours and sizes.
This scarf/hat thing in navy or pink. http://www.etsy.com/listing/84171386/crochet-scarf-or-hat

Jewellery etc.
Amber coloured bead necklace 50cm long
A necklace you think will go with this dress. http://pinterest.com/pin/318746609/ as I am stumped as to what to make. Feel free to convo me over this one.
Some dangly beaded earrings in different colours (silver or goldplate is okay for me)

My son is wanting some attention so I will finish this up in a couple of hours, sorry,

I claim melmakespretty for a Bunting in Blue and red for her son's room Smiley

(....bunting, how could I resist?! Tongue )

3rd claim this round

3 claims outstanding / 0 sent / 0 received

Hi  My name is Lauren. I am 27 and Im from Melbourne, Australia.
I am married (have been for 7 years). I have a furbaby (cat) named Maxie. She is our princess. She doesn't go near my crafting things though.
I am a teacher and I am also studying graphic design. I lived in Japan for the first 5 months of this year teaching English to children. It was one of the best (read: easiest) jobs Ive ever had. I decided to come back home to my husband, family and friends, but I totally miss Japan  Its such an amazing country! Right now I am emergency teaching and believe it or not I LOVE it!
I love the colour spectrum, my favourite colours are Red and Cobalt Blue. Brown, Cream and Red would match my house. I love the Scandinavian look of bright pops of colour on white.
I would describe my style as Cute, Fun, Bright, Happy, Neat and Eclectic.
I would prefer items from a smoke free environment. And I don't mind if you have a pet  .....as long as they don't sit on your crafts  I am also allergic to hessian >.<
You can check out my pinterest to get my style but I would much prefer a specific wish granted from the lists below. http://pinterest.com/lozzabee/ If you are unsure PLEASE PM me, I'm always around

This swap has now closed. Thanks for swapping along everyone Smiley

I posted my list at the beginning of the September swap, and have made the last claim of the October swap, so it all rounds out nicely.

We will be re-starting the Aussie Ongoing Wish Swap in the new year, hope to see you there Cheesy
