Details of swap:

This is an ongoing swap: Claim an item from the list of the last person who posted and post your own list in response. It makes a chain. When we get to the end of the month, the very last person to post a list will be the first person to post a list at the beginning of the next month.

The size of the package should be a medium item. This means 2 or more crafting hours ( this is not cooking time, drying time, etc.. waiting around for something to set up.......it is craft time for the average crafter) or supplies worth at least $20.

1) When you send to the person you have claimed, you MUST PM the organizer with the delivery confirmation # or if you are outside the US, you need to upload a copy of your post office receipt.

2) When you receive a claim, you MUST PM the organizer so she can update the main list.

These 2 required PM's are part of communication and are used when giving feedback for participating in this swap.

If you want to participate, information to send to the organizer: rscowtown
Name of swap: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 111
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? (If not, please read carefully to be sure you do not claim someone outside your country)
Confirm that are at least 16 years old: (YES/NO)

Do you understand that you are claiming for at least a medium sized item? For this swap a medium sized item means 2 or more crafting hours or over $20 worth of supplies.
Are you a Friend of Craftster?
How many claims are you allowed?
Do you agree that you will PM the organizer when you send and when you receive, and if sending, PM the delivery confirmation # or a pic of the receipt if you are outside the US?
Do you understand that you should post at least once in the discussion thread?



Do not post in this thread until you are ready to make a claim. All discussion needs to be kept in the discussion/gallery thread. Please post at least once in the discussion thread.

When you PM the organizer for sending and receiving please include the name of the swap (including the round) and the due date of the claim.  
I.E.  Sally ----> Suzy for a pink pony saddle due out Jan 1

Please pay close attention to your partners wish list and allergies, likes, dislikes etc. Make sure your own allergy information and your country are prominently displayed in your post.

Do not claim someone while waiting for approval. You may claim as soon as you get approval confirmation.

Have your list including both 15 medium crafted items AND 15 supply items ready before making your first claim (the more you have, the better your chance of getting claimed quickly).

Please include your claims status: How many claims you have made in total, how many are in transit and how many have been received by their intended recipients. i.e/ 4 claims/1 in transit/2 received.

Unsent Claim Limit:
Friend of Craftster: Three
First-Time Swapper: One
Everyone Else: Two

You may claim again once you have shipped a claim but you can not have more than twice your Unsent Claim Limit outstanding at any one time.

If you are a friend of craftster you can have 3 unsent claims open at a time and no more than 6 total claims open (open meaning in transit as well as not yet sent) no matter how many have been posted. As an example, You claim 3 times, send all 3 packages, then claim 3 more times. Even when you send any or even all of those 3 claims, you can not claim again until a claim has been received. So a person can be 6 claims/3 in transit/0 received. Or 6/6/0 or 8/5/2 or 7/5/1.

If you are not a friend of craftster, you can have at most 2 claims unsent and 4 claims total between unsent and in transit. So 4/2/0 is okay or 5/3/1 or 6/4/2

If this is your first swap, You can have at most one claim in transit and one claim unsent. 2/1/0, 2/2/0, 3/1/1

Please keep in mind that DC#'s are required for all US to US packages and receipts are required for all international packages. If you can not provide a receipt and the package does not arrive you will need to resend the package.

If you have questions, please PM me! Welcome to Round 111 of the OWS!

Hi, my name is Anne. I live in Bremen (in Germany!) with my husband Uwe and little ones: Lea (3) and Hanna (1).  I don't like cigarette/cigar smoke, but have no allergies to speak of (some artificial scents, mostly). Our house is pet- and smoke-free.

My favourite colours are black (esp. for wearbales), dark teal, deep purple, dark brown, cream & taupe (sand, milk, stone, wool... think nature), and pink. I use those colours for the kids as well, (they also get bright light green). I like plain fabrics, or patterns like leaves and blossoms; polka dot... We have decorated our apartment mostly in light colours (white, cream, wood) so colourful stuff is always welcome. Repurposed and/or used is always fine. I usually prefer cotton or other natural fibers over acrylics.  Also I'm happy to receive supply only-claims.

I've set up a board on Pinterest for this swap, links to (almost) all handmade items (or at least pictures) from my list should be here: http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/craftster-ongoing-wish-list/. Big wishes right now are here, but I have lots of things I want on other Pinterest boards, so if you find something there... Especially here http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/jewelry-id-love-to-receive/ or here http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/t-shirts-i-want-to-make/ I love the two t-shirts I've received so far and am wearing them constantly. Now I want more!

MOST RECENT ITEMS (working on examples, please see my Pinterest list http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/craftster-ongoing-wish-list/)
O NEW stamps - a simple leaf design, or swirls. also maybe a pretty blossom in parts, or one of those castle stamp sets.
O NEW recipe cards (about 6x8" (15x20cm, A5))
O NEW mini stamps for "filofaxing" - appointments, birthdays, dates, movies, etc. - also work well for greeting cards!
O NEW a kind of suncatcher or mobile for the girls, so can be very colourful and all sparkly! ladybugs, butterflies and dragonflies a plus! maybe single pendants or strands to hang in their windows

O NEW dryer balls
O NEW mug rug/s! It doesn't have to match anything, knock yourself out! (I've been meaning to add this for ages, I received my first one from our lovely organizer, and it's so cute!)
O NEW fairy/butterfly wings to wear for the 3yo - white/silver, or pink, or aqua, or whatever
O NEW lavender sachets - can be other scents as well, or I can fill myself. Would love lemon verbena and bergamot or lavender.

O Infinity scarf like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495762505/ or plain, or like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279496051367/ (jersey, or plain cotton, all fine! please just natural fibers, though)
O Ironing board cover for small folding table http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381080/
O Triple zipper bag like this or any other style, just need a small pouch with two extra pockets! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494592681/
O File folder pillow http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495877363/ (for those 2 minute breaks when I have to clear my head!)
O iPod cozy (for iPod classic) - maybe a star like this? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381063/ - or just a very plain pockety thing. Or I'd love one with a cutout for the wheel, but it doesn't necessarily need a window for the screen.
O Wall organizer with flat pockets, colourful like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494587827/ or cream/sand, or whatever you think would work for me (I have one exactly like this already, and I love it!)
O Dandelion laptop or tablet sleeve (or iphone or ipod classic case) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494719141/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279496051387/ or different style/pattern
O Quiet Book pages to go into a A5 two-hole-folder. Closure learning type would be good, but anything is welcome! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494606323/ - I'll gladly do the punching!
O If anyone has a nice dark jersey fabric (solid or patterned) and maybe a serger, I'd love a very simple, plain tunic. It would have to be pretty large, though.
O Binding or bias tape: patterned or solid, scrappy or single colour...
O reusable Swiffer cover & Swiffer duster fleece thingies
O Tote bags - rather deeper than wide, with long straps - you can never have enough! (either purses, or the simple grocery totes)

Knit or crochet
O Wrist warmers in a neutral colour (many examples!)http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279496093363/ this one is probably the easiest
O Fingerless gloves maybe like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495755550/
O Mittens in a soft, non-chunky yarn
O Cowl http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279496399557/
O Spiral heel socks http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279493860489/
O Any socks really, cable, plain, or self-striping, knit or or crochet...
O Knit hat with owl pattern http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494719195//owl-hat-4  55 or 60cm (or really large for me) in grey or a nice cool brown shade, or in crochet http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495143479/ (or the pattern)
O Knit berry baby hat http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/berry-baby-hat for heads 50 or 55 (in a similar soft purple or strawberry red; if you add pips in the strawberry: yellow please!) (we already have a raspberry pink one!)
O reusable Swiffer cover (I've heard they work great!)

O notecards - mostly as thank yous and cards for swaps, but birthdays, Christmas, or no theme greatly appreciated, too!
O Leather planner/organizer cover like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495377730/ in A6 so I can put a regular notebook and a calendar in it (or like the smaller Moleskine flex). I love plain oiled leather in darker brown or black.
O Screen printing kit (I would so love to try this!)
O Pillowcase 16 inch square, some examples here: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381076/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381077/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381087/
O Mini Twister game (the mat for the fingers as well as the wheel thing) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495377707/
O Bubbles necklace! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495383186/
O Mini hooplas/wall art for my room in the doll house (because there is no space for a real hoopla wall and I love tiny things!). So inchies or rinchies in your favourite medium.
O Stand-up thingy for tablet (to look at sewing instructions while sewing...) (the bookish kind?) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494649573/
O Embroidery floss cards - plain, or shaped, painted, printed... lots of those! (examples on my Pinterest)
O Yarn bowl - this pottery one http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494249555/ is my absolute favourite (the colour, the little stars!), but I'd love one made from a wooden bowl too. Or even from a large plastic cup, as long as it's fun to look at and doesn't topple over or hop around the room while I'm working. (If it's large enough, I can always put a stone in as a weight!)
O Anything Labyrinth for me... crochet, knit, Fimo, sewn, embroidered, whatever, useful or just pretty...
O Calvin & Hobbes - again anything "pretty" and/or useful
O Something Care Bears! But from the original series please, not the bobbleheaded new ones.
O Something "Where the Wild Things Are"... loved by me and my daughter!

Embellished / Decorated Shirts
I love the four I've received so far and am wearing them constantly. Now I want more!
I prefer a round, wide neckline, so a scoop neck or boatneck would be best (don't like anything too close to the throat). A deep and wide V-neck would be okay, too. And I love 3/4 sleeves (or long), but tees or tanks are always fine, too. Love both cotton with a bit of stretch as well as cotton only; also very thin fabrics. Women's plus size 24/26 or 3x. As for colour, black/white/grey is completely fine, as are any of my favourites.
If possible, I prefer stencilled/drawn/painted/appliqued/embroidered etc. over iron-ons, because these tend to get destroyed in our washing machine, even in the wool cycle.
Themes: Anything you think might work for me, or see here for ideas: http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/t-shirts-i-want-to-make/
O XKCD t-shirts (baby, natural parenting, grownups, counter-clockwise)
O Rickroll shirt for me - something like this, or completely different... http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494328944/ Or can just be Rick Astley, without rolling...
O Again anything Labyrinth for me... Jareth, or a quotation, or... preferably in black and white (or a teeny bit glittery?)
O Calvin & Hobbes (I love: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495095892/)

Supplies (scraps or used is fine!)
O NEW cotton/satin ribbon or twill tape (plain or patterned, printed, embroidered...) to hem kiddie skirts or pants, pieces 25" or longer would be good
O DMC floss: any of these numbers for two projects:
starry night over the rhone: 158 159 160 161 162 169 318 414 612 726 729 798 809 3822 3823 3838 3839 3840 3865
midsummer eve: 931, 936 (3), 935, 904, 890 (3), 469 (2), 3363, 3346, 700, 826, 610, 907, 704, 470, 3012, 372, 437, 3046, 725, 959, 522, 833, 834, 727
O Fabric paint (my favourites: black, white, dark teal, dark purple, dark brown, pink; but need the regular colours as well to make shirts and stuff with the kiddies) (can also be glittery, metallic or pearlescent) - I'd love the kind that doesn't have to be ironed to fix the paint
O Fimo soft (all the colours!)
O Plain white silk scarves, shawls, foulards, handkerchieves etc. for me to paint
O Always: fabric! (esp. solid black!, teals; purples, or smaller patterns)
O Always: Sewing thread! (my favourites are Gtermann, Coats, Madeira; I use cotton, polyester and blends) at the moment I could especially use reds, purples, (both warm & cool, esp. dark), pinks, as well as basic primary & secondary colours (red blue green orange).
O Binding or bias tape (handmade, patterned?)
O Calendar stamp http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495066678/
O Metal stamping blanks & stamps (heart, star!) (oh, anything really, I only have very plain alphabet stamps and some rectangly tags)
O Embroidery floss bobbins (plain, or patterned)
O Twill tape
O Papers or cardstock (plain, glittery or pearly): Would love 12x18cm / 5x8in, can use smaller, especially in teal, cream, turquoise, black, pink/rose or brown (to be used as planner pages/dividers, for cards etc.)
O Books/magazines on (bead) embroidery, sewing (doll clothes, kids, or women plus size)
O Sewing patterns for kids clothes & doll clothes (American Girl, and baby 12inch)
O KamSnaps
O No sew snaps (refills; no tools needed) (Prym) smallish preferred
O Very large eyelets (1/2" +)
O Seed beads in sizes 11/0, 15/0, delicas
O Wooden or glass beads from 3mm to 10mm, any colours/shapes
O Beading supplies, especially a small bead scoop, chain, charms, headpins (flat and ball, silvertone or black)
O Tea tins / tea caddies (to be used to hold pens and crafty stuff) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495377711/ and http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495377711/ (love tea urns, too, but those might be not ideal for overseas shipping)
O Anything really (bedsheet, pillowcase, notebook, eraser, pens, stamps, stickers...) from these: original care bears, forever friends (the teddy bears!), classic pooh, very hungry caterpillar, barbapapa, moomins, gruffalo, mickey & minnie mouse

My 3yo has been bitten by the ballet bug! If anyone has (esp.) ballet slippers or shoes (just for play, she cannot stand on pointe yet!) that the original owner has grown out of or doesn't use anymore, would love to receive/swap/whatever! She's been watching the Nutcracker (Balanchine version) over and over again and is constantly asking everyone to dance.

Thank you for claiming me!

Hi! I'm Olivia.  My husband and I have two boys ages 14, and 4, and a lot of my craft requests will be for them.  My 14yo is a band geek (trombone) who loves Dr. Who, wolves, and the color black.  My 4yo loves Toy Story and skeletons; particularly the human skeleton. Strange, I know, but he loves 'em!  We live in sunny Southern California, USA with a handful of unusual pets, and a lot of houseplants. 
I am allergic to wool and cannot wear anything that has the slightest bit of wool or animal fiber in it, but it's okay to use for crafted items that are not intended to be worn next to the skin.
My favorite themes are bones, botany, bugs, and animals; preferably realistic.
My favorite colors are moss green, eggplant, burgundy, mustard, black, gray, ivory and other generally Earthy tones.  I predominantly wear black and other dark colors.
My least favorite colors are red, pink, and orange.
My favorite patterns include tiny polka dots, pin stripes, tiny florals, and botanicals (like ferns and ivy).  Nothing that could be considered "tropical" please.
If you're not sure if I'll like a color or pattern, all black is a guarantee. 
I have an extensive Pinterest https://www.pinterest.com/laachapa/

I claim Lo{ve} for some handmade soaps.


My name is Melody. I live in SC with my husband and our two daughters. We don't have any allergies, but I am somewhat sensitive to the smell of smoke.

Things from my list don't have to be exact. I'm flexible!

Pug doll. Something like these: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986669040858/ http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986669040885/ http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986669040863/

Fairy house of some sort..just ideas: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986668190951/ http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986667545405/

Napkins for my table. Brown, turquoise, dark orange.

Bunny to give my daughter for easter http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665188937/ http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986669221974/ http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986669221974/

Sewn carrots for Easter decor. I was thinking of putting them in a basket with a bunny or something along those lines.

Prayer flags. I am loving these but don't have any yet. Ideas for various ones I would like: Family, health, motivation, faith, forgiveness, courage.

Dog collar(s) and/or leash. Any cute colors or patterns for girl dogs. If you want to do this, I can get measurements.

Crochet or knit?

Bunny of some sort for Easter for my daughter.

Would really really love a gaitor for my husband. It's basically a tube that goes around his neck to keep it warm. Would need to be lined or double knit maybe to be extra warm. Neutral colors.

Stocking hat for hubby in Carolina Panthers colors. Lined with fleece maybe or double knit so it's warm.

Knit sweater for French bulldog. Martha stewart has a free pattern. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/151433606190246412/

Crochet or knitted cat or kitten.


I am redecorating my kitchen and dining room. I would love anything for those rooms. Wall art, candle holders, placemats, napkins, napkin rings, vases, flowers or anything for centerpiece. I love these colors http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986669337039/ http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986669337056/

Jute placemats (4) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986669327520/

These decorative balls..not this color and don't have to be exact. I just would like some to put in bowls, etc. I like cream, brown, turquoise, dark oranges, rust. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986669327528/

Love this sign. It could be on anything(canvas, wood, styrofoam painted to look like wood) , but I don't want the white. More wood or something more natural. My dining room is warm colors so the white would stand out too much. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986669315998/

Chanel wall art: My daughter's room is black, white, and dark pink. She likes these: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986668131341/ http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986668296531/ http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986668296529/

I claim Momof2! for an easter bunny plush

1 claim, 0 in transit, 0 received.

My name is Agnes, and I'm an Art History student from Belgium! I am allergic to dust and lactose, I have no pets, and I don't smoke.

I'm an avid fan of the Silmarillion (and everything Tolkien, really), the Portal games, and Alice in Wonderland. I'm strangely enamored with The Doctor's TARDIS. I also love cats, crows/ravens, clocks, eyes, hands, surrealism, macabre, bizarre, Lolita-cute and sciency/steampunky things. My favorite colors are black, red (blood red, burgundy, etc... no earthy, rusty tones though), and royal blue. I like pillows, interesting jewelry, strange/unusual home decor, fabric, beads, charms, embroidery the list is virtually endless! For most things, erring on the side of gothic/dark style tends to be a foolproof strategy for me; that way itll definitely fit with the rest of my stuff ^_^

I have made a board for this swap: http://www.pinterest.com/quantumphysica/the-wish-list/ but do check out the rest of my boards if you want a better idea of what kind of person I am. I tried my best to put many different kinds of crafty items on this list, but if necessary I'll add more/different things. (Also, there are probably a heap of things on my Pinterest board that I forgot to explicitly add to this list.)

If you want to make me something wearable and need my measurements, just send me a message!

I put a lot of links with examples in this, but that doesn't mean I expect an exact copy of the item, it's just to give a bit of an idea of what I like Wink

Sewn/Knitted/Crocheted Items: Wearables

- A cape. Yeah, I know. Big wish. I'd love to have a long, black hooded cape, something like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585562/ or this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585568/

- Knitted fingerless gloves, preferably black or red, or somehow fandom themed. (Something like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938586512/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938742229/?)

- A notebook cover, A5 sized. (Something like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585573/ or anything in that genre. Would be great if it was removable though, so I could take out the notebook when its full and reuse the cover.)

- A pillow cover/throw blanket/potholder/pin cushion/(anything really) with Fanor's and/or Fingolfin's heraldic device on it. (The devices are these, for Fanor http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938586644/ and Fingolfin http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938586650/)

- A purse organizer/caddy with a large zippered compartment; must fit a typical A5 sized book. Not too large, it has to work in most of my purses.

- In case there is anyone here who makes these things, I'm open to receiving adult/fetish items. PM for more info.


You simply cannot go wrong with anything
- Tolkien-themed (preferably Silmarillion, if this list hasnt shown you already how obsessed I am with it)

- Alice in Wonderlandthemed

- Portal-themed (Especially companion cubes)

- Anything TARDIS-y. I'm weird like that.

Just check my Pinterest swap board, I have pinned so many items with these themes, too much to mention each thing separately


- Fabric. Large pieces, scraps, and everything in between is welcome! Large pieces preferably black, grey, and red as I use those for clothing and that tends to be my color scheme. Small pieces can be any shade or print, Ill find something to make with it! More specifically you can please me with:
   Black and red velvet (for a cape or robe, large pieces please ^_^)
   Silky fabric in red, orange, gold, yellow, bright royal blue, silver, and soft silvery blue. (This is all for one project, an applique pillow. Scrappy pieces are ok; the whole thing is only going to be 12x12inch when completed anyway.)
   Middle-Earth/Tolkien/LOTR themed fabric (Maps, One Ring verse, Mordor, anything!)
   Sciency fabric (think equations, molecules, graphs, periodic table, number pi, etc)
   Portal-themed fabric, especially the cutesy kind with companion cubes
   Alice in Wonderland fabric, especially the kind with the original/vintage illustrations from the book.
   Escher-esque/optical illusion printed fabric
   Clock prints
   Black leather/pleather

- Embroidery supplies (colorful thread, an embroidery hoop, etc.)

- Charms. I have some pretty specific wishes here because I hope to make a themed bracelet and most of these aren't available anywhere near me
   Hand charm (something like this one: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585884/)
   Hammer charm (something like this one: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585888/)
   Bow charm (something like this one: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585898/)
   Arrow charm (something like this one: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585899/)

- Iridescent white-ish charms/dangles. I was thinking rainbow moonstone, opal glass, maybe just really shiny crystals? I need 3, small enough to add to a charm bracelet http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938699808/

- Toppled square cabochon bases (like these: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938743724/, squares with a ring on one of the corners. It would be awesome if you could also find transparent dome thingies to go with them, like these but matching in size with the bases: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938743805/)

Thanks a lot for claiming me! ^_^
