Hi! My name is Karen and I live in Austin, TX with my teenaged dd (who typically ends up with most of my swap items), a huge, goofy lab-mix and a lovely, prissy cat.

I love designs from the 60's and early 70s (think mod & flower power). Also 50's post-modern. 50's/60's SURF THEMES!  I used to have a 1974 VW Thing and I miss it a lot! I also love Asian designs in fabric and artwork.
I prefer clean lines and bold graphics rather than cutesy or fussy prints.

I was born in the year of the Dragon and I just love them! And English Bulldogs (cute, not fierce).  I love anything magical/wonderous including fairies and Alice in Wonderland.

Other random things I love: silver jewelry, reading, travel, art, geekery, the periodic table, Scooby-Doo, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Firefly, nature, trees, dandelions, rain, cooking, whimsical things (but not whimsies), steampunk!. For more info check my pinterest.

In general, I prefer practical things that can be used (with the exception of small wall art or hoops for my hoopla wall).  My favorite colors are bolder/earthy tones to 60s mod to beach colors.  Blues/greens/tangerine/black/white/deep red. Please no neon colors or pastels, or pink.

Any of my pinterest boards with wishes or want in the title are fair game (although the sewing one needs to be cleaned up).  Feel free to look there for inspiration and if you spot something there that you would like to make, go for it!  Feel free to PM me with any questions.  http://pinterest.com/luckdragon/   


DR HORRIBLE or DOCTOR WHO (10th doctor) or Luna Lovegoode PLUSH!!  OK, this is probably a super large, however, if there are any plush dollmakers out there, my daughter would absolutely love you!! Something like the ones SpeakGeekAndEnter makes http://www.pinterest.com/pin/275564070923918083/
Or Noxika makes

leather/denim clutch - inspired by this one http://www.pinterest.com/pin/275564070923632102/

ipad case like this but in more fun fabric - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/275564070922537565/

Microwave bowl holders! 


My daughter would REALLY love a Gryffindor scarf like this:

crocheted scrubbies made from netting.  I really love these for dishes!!

French Press Felted slippers size 9 (I think the pattern is on ravelry as well) http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=41507335

Shawn the sheep slippers!

Dangly earrings


soaps, scrubs, lip balms - I like most scents EXCEPT lavendar, rose or sweet pea. I love "beach", citrus, jasmine - clean scents or tropical florals

Creative notecards!!  Such as:
note cards inspired by Beatles, dragons, Alice in Wonderland, anything altered fairy/magical ala knickertwist/phizzychick (thanks marcusandila! Can always use more!)

Embroidery Hoopla!  I need more to add to my wall - See my pinterest for ideas - I would love something Beatles inspired or retro surf themed or Harry Potter or anything inspired by my pinterest

hot glue gun holder! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/184436547214064677/

hand embellished fabric - screen printed/stamped/tie dyed/sunprinted - whatever you do!

50 in 2012 (24/50)
Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

Hi, I'm Bonnie, and I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  I am a nurse, living with my partner in crime of almost 23 years, and our two dogs, Ginger and Troy.  I love dogs, dogs, dogs, trees,  birds, crafting, Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, Anne of Green Gables, Muppets, Discworld, Monty Python, cooking, gardening, crime shows, reading, etc.  Patterns and styles I like include artists like the Group of Seven, Emily Carr, North West Pacific art, Rick Beaver, Sue Coleman, Sharon Girdwood, Asian inspired art/patterns, Tim Holtz style mixed media.  I love things where there is a hidden message, image, or joke.

I love bright, jewel tones of blues, greens, purples, reds, grays, blacks.  I normally hate oranges, pinks, yellows.  I am really creeped out by things like spiders, clowns, cherubs/angels.  I am not into dogma or organized religion in any way, so would prefer not to receive with any religious overtones.  Also not into gory things or nude things. 

I am allergic to cats, can't wear wool near my neck, face (no wool scarves, mitts, jewelry), and normally don't wear jewelry because of my work.  I am sensitive to some scents, so would prefer nothing with an overly sweet or musky scent

Things I would like to receive....

-  Garden art of any kind - signs, decorated pots, windchimes, reuseable garden spikes/labels (I have grease pencils), candle holders, whatever you can think of
-  I would love any stained glass anything
- knit or crocheted cotton scrubbies or washcloths for the kitchen
-  thin wool socks - oddly enough, the itchies, etc are all around my torso and face, but I can wear wool socks and hand knit ones are soooooooo comfy, durable, and great for when we go hiking with the dogs  (around a size 6-7)
-  scrub tops (size on request - I am a larger lady)
-  decorated scarves (non-wool) - knit, embroidered, painted, dyed, however you want to make it - I love fine scarves for the warmer weathers too
-  reusable snack bags/pouches
-  reusable/decorated napkins/cutlery holders - something for the home, or something for my work lunchbag
-  any art of my dogs, Ginger and Troy (and my heart dog, Toby who passed away - pictures on request)
-   bookmarks - I never feel like I have enough
-  a hoopla for my hoopla wall
-  small swear hoopla (s) - I have a little collection of them, for my craft room
-  little dog poo bag holders that we can fill and pop into a pocket, or hang off the dog leash (we use Flexi leashes normally, but have regular nylon or metal leashes in the car too)
-  water bottle holder for when we go on hikes (could incorporate a little pocket for poo bags, or some cash)
-  hand carved stamps
-  creative note cards - general (I like to add notes to my swap packages)
-  lavender sachets for the drawers
-  tote bags - small or large for shopping, or books
-  needle books
-  signs for the door or the kitchen - I may have some examples on pinterest - snarky is good - but even simple "no solicitors" or something like that
-  Anything creative - be it an altered piece, ornament, or whatever with either birds, trees, Fall, Winter, dogs... or anything inspired off my pinterest - I just love being surprised Smiley
-  recipe books - I love sharing in other people's tried and true recipes too
-  polymer clay decorated knitting needles, crocheted hooks, pens, tools, etc
-  wood or metal cutlery caddy/napkin holder of some kind - for holding utensils/napkins/paper towels when we have BBQs
-  Cute magnets, especially ones with a really strong hold

If anyone is interested in sending anything non crafted, there is lots of inspiration on my pinterest - I would love any ephemera - paper, tickets, tokens, buttons, charms, beads, maps, old books, old sheet music, used stamps, used cutting dies, small tins and canisters, old game pieces, feathers, skeleton leaves, bits of ribbon, fabric, papers, whatever!  I also love tea and coffee, and art related to same.

Hi!  My name is Ginger and I live in San Diego, CA with my husband.  We don't have any furry children, but we do have TWINS on the way! They are both girls, and will be here very soon!  

I have a ton of stuff on my pinterest, and just about anything on my ravelry queue is fair game.  

I have a very kitschy, quirky sense of style. I love jewel tones for things around the house, but my favorite colors to wear are DARK purple, dark grey/charcoal, navy blue, and black.  I really like deep red shades too.  If you are making anything for the babies, please Please PLEASE NO PINK!  

I'm a sucker for terrariums, foxes, amigurumi, pandas, chococat, kitties, boston terriers (we are getting one when we move into a house at the end of the year!) and jars of whimsies.

I enjoy fabrics that have tiny patterns (which almost look like the designs that you see on origami paper), especially sashiko designs! retro floral patterns are pretty neat too. I also like black and white tiny polka dots.


-crib sheets.  Here's a pretty easy tutorial - http://www.theribbonretreat.com/blog/how-to-make-a-crib-sheet.html

-I need knitting needle cases very badly. Especially one for DPNs.  I like how this case is constructed - https://www.etsy.com/listing/57170147/needle-case-needle-holder-craft-bag?ref=shop_home_active_17  I would prefer one that has a flap at the top to keep the needles in, and a button closure instead of a tie or ribbon.

-Wallet http://oliverands.com/product/OLV-SS005HA1.html

-Zip up bags for craft supplies


-Amineko cat. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/amineko-crocheted-cat

-Magic loop teddy. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/magic-loop-teddy

-Two pairs of baby sized mary janes in black.  These would be perfect! https://www.etsy.com/listing/75769202/crochet-pattern-210-baby-too-cute-mary

-Knitted or crocheted amigurumi toys for the babies.  Please make sure that they don't have any beads/buttons on them (choking hazard!)

-Baby beanies, preferably purple and made from wool.

-French Press Felted slippers, size 10. https://www.etsy.com/listing/41507335/pdf-pattern-download-french-press-felted

-Knitted socks, womens size 10

-Fluffy bunny slippers, size 10 http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fluffy-bunny-slippers

-My dear, a deer trophy http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/my-dear---a-deer-trophy

-Mini fox scarf http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mr-fox-stole-my-heart--mini-fox

-mug cozies like this one. https://www.etsy.com/transaction/162271470? Thanks Grab a Coffee!

-Peekaboo mitts http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/peekaboo-mitts

-Rikke hat. Preferably in a dark purple or dark gray variegated yarn.  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/rikke-hat  


-Embroidery pendants. I love the kind with little flowers, or maybe even a tiny fox.  This one is pretty cool https://www.etsy.com/listing/174854834/poppy-field-hand-embroidery-pendant?ref=shop_home_active_1&ga_search_query=poppy

-Terrarium pendants (there are some on my pinterest)

Household things

-Handmade pottery mugs.

-Little terrariums

-Embroidery hoopla. I used to have a massive collection, but it all got destroyed in the move. Please check out my pinterest for ideas.

-Throw pillow covers, knitted or embroidered. This one is perfect https://www.etsy.com/listing/62772666/hand-embroidered-linen-pillow-cover?ref=sr_gallery_33&ga_search_query=floor+cushion&ga_page=2&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade in dark purple or red

-Potholders, knitted/crocheted or sewn.

-Dishcloths/kitchen scrubbies

-Embroidered napkins and placemats.  These are perfect - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/261560690831100196/  Free pattern here - http://www.feelingstitchy.com/2011/02/wanna-stitchalong-with-us.html.  I also like Scandinavian embroidery designs.


-Vintage (or vintage inspired) ephemera paper

-Yarn. I hate to sound like a brat, but I don't really use the stuff you find in big box craft stores (like michaels, joanns, etc) Madelinetosh, Malabrigo, and Noro are my current favorites. I also LOVE indie hand-dyed yarns...handspun is awesome too!

-tshirt yarn for making rugs.

-Czech glass beads

-heart-shaped buttons

-fabric scraps, fat quarters, jelly rolls, etc.

-Jars of whimsies

-glass tiles/frames for making pendants

-Handmade soap.  I haven't had good experiences with melt and pour soaps, but any other kind is good.  Any scent is ok (even masculine stuff because my dude will happily use it) as long as it isn't heavily floral.  I really love honey-scented soaps. And fruity scents like strawberry.

-Scrubs.  Salt, sugar, lip scrubs, whateva.

-Lip balms, body butters.

-Homemade jams, sauces.  We are vegetarian, so no gelatin please.  But we love pretty much anything.  Fall spices (like pumpkiny, cinnamon type stuff) are a big plus.

I'm a huge sucker for chocolate and snacks from other countries.  I'm down to try anything as long as it doesn't have gelatin or meat in it, and it isn't super spicy.

Thanks for looking! <3

Hi. I'm Shannon and I live in the spooky city of Savannah, Georgia with Mr. P, kid 2, twin kids 3 and 4, and occasionally kid 1. Our kitty, Chaircat Mao, rules the roost despite being and outdoor resident.

My likes include:

Harry Potter (no brainer there): hoops, stenciled t-shirts, bookmarks, socks, hats, canvas bag for library books, ornaments

Peg Dolls: I'd like to get a collection going. No particular theme.

Irish: painted mug with snarky remark, hooplas with shamrocks, leprechauns, etc., dishtowels, anything really.

Ideas using any theme from my Pinterest: Smallish art pieces to either hang on the wall or display in a cabinet, embroidered hoops, socks, apron, ATCs, ATBs, inchies, bookmarks.

And a few more ideas: atomic Mid Century Modern imagery, vintage/scary Hallowe'en anything, knitted/crocheted hats, ninnis, stenciled t shirts, paper ephemera, post card from your hometown, Bruce Campbell, and surprises. I really like surprises.

My Pinterest has all of my favourite things, and pretty much anything related to or inspired by something from there will be much loved.

Thanks for taking a look!

Hi! I'm Emma, living in Michigan USA right now. I've gotten my BFA in art, and now am biding my time working til I figure out my next move. I love weird, random things, inappropriate humor, and beautiful art. My favorite colors right now are teal, bright red, mossy green, deep blues, and blue-green. I love all colors except neons and pastels. Right now I've been super loving geometric art especially crystal forms and chevrons, topography,  I have no allergies, so no worries there. My pinterest and profile should give you a good idea of my style and preferences, but I'm super friendly so please feel free to ask me anything. Big wishes are IN BOLD Examples of a lot of the items listed below can be found on my pinterest.

***Sewn/Embroidery Crafts***

an embroidered twinchie (or set) you think I'd like - Check out the Twinchie swap gallery to get an idea of what I mean...
My pinterest embroidery board is a great source of inspiration too!

sleeping mask - super simple with elastic band would be totally fine. Machine-washable would be a plus too.

freestyle machine embroidery wall art (check my pinterest for ideas or PM me)

microwave bowl holders

I would LOVE an shirt with lace applique similar to this bug - so gorgeous!!

pj shorts - I'm totally flexible on pattern, would prefer cotton fabric, would really like a pocket or two - PM for measurements

***Yarnie Crafts***

flip-top mittens with a thumb - scrappy is totally cool, or a fun pattern (I think there's some that don't have thumbs but my poor thumb gets cold Smiley)

scrappy socks (mid calf length would be great) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/445926800575268626/

wool dryer balls

***Misc Stuff***

a necklace inspired by any of my jewelry pinterest boards

I would love some sort of art that could be hung on the wall like MissingWillow's mousetrap death scene! Doesn't have to be the same kind of scene, but using small model figures in a funny scene sort of thing.

Mt. Dew wreath http://www.pinterest.com/pin/220606081720618601/
(Or even just Mt Dew cans diecut into fancy shapes so I can make the wreath myself)

your original handprinted FQs - can be any manner of screen printing, block printing, etc. I want to make a quilt with handprinted fabrics so am collecting for that  Smiley

Funny cards for Christmas/Birthdays/Mothers/Fathers Day - I'd love something like this! An assortment would be great, or maybe 10 of the Christmas variety, whatever strikes your fancy.

Gently used is great.

terry cloth (scraps are fine, I'm wanting to make some baby bibs for my SIL)

sewing threadin any and all colors

embroidery floss (always need black/white)

resin - I've dabbled before but would love some supplies to play  Smiley

raised bezel pendants for my resin play http://www.pinterest.com/pin/220606081722302735/

if you have an unloved, unused electric dremel I'd LOVE to give it a good home!  Cheesy

seaglass or smooth stones with a hole drilled in them

magnet buttons for bag closures

gift card to etsy, Joanns, or amazon


chapstick (mint, similar or nonflavored), homemade or store-bought

fun socks

Thank you to anyone who claims me!  Smiley

One is a Jack Russell and the other is a Yorkie.  Im a HUGE Disney villains and hello kitty addict so when in doubt anything dealing with those two is a huge win! I just moved in to a new house and my crafty room is empty so any hooplas, painting, any kind of wall art really would be awesome. Something just to jazz  the place up a bit. I got married last April so we're still in the newlywed phase. Anything with our names and or wedding date would be awesome too!

Other stuff
Hooplas, paintings and/or wall art with crafty sayings or something like this
Small blankets-crocheted, knit, sewn doesnt matter. Just something to snuggle under while Im watching TV.
Hairbows- starwars, hello kitty, Disney villains. I have super short hair so Im thinking maybe a 4 inch bow?
Stitch markers
Some kind of decoration for my kitchen table. Like a centerpiece
A bright wreath for my front door

Hello all, Im Heather in central California. Ive been away from Craftstering and my internet friends for a while because Im super-busy keeping my head above water with grad school (Im a librarian/archivist in the making), job, homemaking, a big relationship, crafting for local people (something I never used to do because I preferred Craftster swaps!  Cheesy but I can't afford it these days), and self-care. Lifes good, though.
My style runs a gamut of granola-bohemian-earthy, multicultural, vintage, androgenous, whimsical, sparkly, and functional. But writing the previous sentence is the most Ive thought about my style in the past two years, which probably says more about my style than the previous sentence. I love reuse, repurposing and upcycling, so I'm happy to receive clean, used materials. Please dont send things that smell of smoke, mildew, or artificial fragrances. If you'd like to make me something wearable, Im small-sized and petite (read short, haha).

My Craftster profile has more info, and theres always Pinterest (the Inspiration boards are for my own reference, not wishlists), but also please feel free to PM me with any questions.

My wishlist:

- sweater chain, with reclaimed materials
- unique charms and baubles that arent necessarily attached to jewelry
- shawl pin

Image Repro and Dyes
- ombre-dying a plain, light-weight hippie/maxi skirt or dress
- a set of full-sized sheets: tie-dye, batik, ombre, screenprint, stamp, indigo, or whatever other thing you want to do with them

- plarn flip-flops

- A tiny book (can be filled on a theme, or blank)

Can be solid or designed paper (doesnt have to be an attractive color or pattern), and Im not concerned about whether its archival quality.

- bolster, throw-pillow, or seat cushion, crafted in your specialty (i.e. patchwork, embroidered, felted, screenprinted, covered with buttons, etc). No ruffles, please.
- a Craftster Scouts merit badge that you believe I have earned -- Ideas discussed at length over on the Friends of Craftster off-topic chit-chat board , or I can share ideas via PM
- something that will help me learn and practice herbalism
- something showcasing your skill in creative reuse/repurposing/upcycling
- something with a mandala, hamsa/eye-of-fatima, chakra symbols, or a labyrinth

Thank you!!
