I claim anna.wahnsinn for some sewn baby shoes.  (2/0/0)

My name is Robin and I live in Portland, Oregon with my partner Phil and our inquisitive and imaginative daughter Aria Jae.  When Im not crafting or hanging out with the family, Im probably teaching, doing research, or attempting to make some progress on my dissertation. Im hoping someone will craft for either my 5.5 year old daughter, Aria Jae or my 4 month old niece, Evelyn.  My daughter loves My Little Pony Friendship is Magic (her favorite is Pinkie Pie), Transformers, Superheroes, animals, science, and exploring the wilderness.  She is a mix of girly girl and rough tough little pioneer lass.   My sister prefers more gender neutral colors (i.e. go easy on the pink and frills) and is a computer science nerd so something nerd-tastic for Evelyn might be fun.  If you check out my Pinterst youll find several boards dedicated entirely to Aria.  Id love anything from any of those boards.  http://www.pinterest.com/rlynn/

For 5.5 year old Aria

1.   Any clothing for little Miss Ariashe loves dresses, skirts, and pantaloons.  Check out my pinterest   board for ideas - http://pinterest.com/rlynn/aria-clothing/. (Size 6)
2.   Custom stenciled or applique tees for Aria.  Good themes are animals (especially elephants), MLP, Care Bears, Superheroes (Avengers and X-men), dinosaurs, anatomy, volcanoes, rainbows (Size 6)
3.   Car pillow for Aria (you know, the kind that look like mini boppy pillows)
4.   Seat Belt cover for Aria
5.   Assorted doll/stuffed animal diapers in various sizes.  
6.   Milk crate liners to hold Arias toys - http://pinterest.com/pin/68468856804893898/
7.   Crocheted or Sewn Totoros for Aria.
8.   Knitted animal stuffies like this sweet elephant - http://pinterest.com/pin/68468856807017238/.
9.   Custom artwork inspired by my daughter Aria.  If art is your thing, Id love to send you a photo and see what you come up with.  Im trying to collect a whole wall of Aria art by various artists.  Any medium or style is welcome.
10.   Doctor play kit for Aria, I really like this one - http://pinterest.com/pin/68468856805505207/.
11.   Lap desk for Aria like this - http://pinterest.com/pin/68468856804474258/.
12.   Craft kits for Aria; thinkmake your own flower press kit, fairy garden kit, felted rocks or soaps kit, simple sewing kits, etc

For 4 month old Evelyn (Evie)

13.   Clothing for my adorable and spunky little niece Evelyn.  She is 4 months old so probably 6 month or bigger in size.  Again, my sister would like to avoid pink and girly themes.
14.   Custom stenciled tees for Evie.  Good themes would be computer science geek themed.
15.   Slouchy hat for Evelyn like this - http://pinterest.com/pin/68468856804616327/.  PM for head size.
16.   Hooded bath towels
17.   Baby crinkle toys like these http://fabriccake.blogspot.com/2011/06/crinkle-toys-and-rattles.html
18.   Hand-dyed play silks in various sizes


1.   thread for my sewing machine (all colors, please only gutermann or coats and clark)
2.   zippers (bright and fun colors, any and all lengths)
3.   zippers (with metal teeth, can't seem to find them)
4.   Separating jacket zippers of various lengths
5.   45mm or 18mm olfa blades for my rotary cutter
6.   watercolor paper
7.   Gallery style canvas (the kind that is stretched over a wood frame; any size)
8.   iron on interfacing (mid-heavy)
9.   Fabric from my Fabric Love Pinterest board here - http://pinterest.com/rlynn/fabric-love/
10.   sewing machine needles (universal and stretch)
11.   Paintbrushes
12.   Bernina bobbins
Thanks much!!

I claim rlynn for clothing for her adorable niece


Our little Emma was born on June 10 so she's only 3 months old. She was 5 weeks early and still a little smaller than 3M. Since we live in a small apartment (in Germany!!!! for all those who'd like to claim me) she doesn't have her own room yet but shares some space in my home office (I'm a teacher).
I pretty much like all colours that you find in nature. Patternwise I like stars, polka dots and stripes and children prints, not too cute and girly though. The decoration of her little space is rather Waldorf inspired.

All the links are for inspiration! Also check out my pinterest (for the little ones board)
