I claim littlefawnpug for faux fur fabric

2/0/0

Hi! I'm Lo, I live in Northern CA, USA. I tend to lean towards darker colors; marroon, gold, black, dark purples and reds, jewel tones, etc. A few of my favorite themes are anatomy, aliens, vintage circus or freak show, bats/vampires (creepy kind, not cutesy) Halloween, chakras, crystals, Egyptian themes or gods, power puff girls, Beauty and the Beast.. Feel free to PM me with questions!

I get migraines extremely easily, therefore I can't accept anything that smells heavily of smoke or has a fake chemical smell. If something is scented I prefer a neutral smell like nag champa or food scents.

Surprises are always welcome! here is my craftster wants pinterest board for inspiration! https://www.pinterest.com/1createmydreams/craftster-wants/

I dislike: bad coffee, smelly perfumes, puffy paint and denim blue (i have no idea why, it just isn't my favorite),

Things for my house:

I claim StainedMushroom for a package of surprizes!

2 claim
0 sent
0 recieved

BRB with list

Hey there.  I live the United States with my hubby, kiddo and pug.  The hubs has sinus issues and allergies, so please no strong smoke smells.  Most of his other allerges include grass, pollen, dust, and other things that wont effect this swap.  Except for his cat allergy, but just as long as your kitty doesnt rub all over the item and you dont send a huge ball of cat hair, then Ill just wipe the item or wash it. 

Im a geek at heart with some nerd and whole lotta goofy mixed in.  I love Harry Potter, Tattoos, Pugs, retro 1950s, video games, pirates, cowboy boots and books.  My favorite crafts are knitting and crochet.  But I do the occasionally sewing project, embroidery hoopla, book folding and well.you get the picture.  LOL.  Color combos I like are red/white/black.  Heather grey.  Tan/chocolate brown.  Black.  Teal.  I dont like pastel, neon, orange or yellow colors.  And themes I dont like are baby, creepy, crude or adult. 


Crafty goodness:

Supply wishes:  all supply claims are great!

~quilting cotton with koi on it

~quilting cotton with tattoo theme

~Lion Brand Wool ease Thick & Quick yarn.  Or similar yarn thats #6 super bulky.  I am making bulky cable knit blankets.  Each panel takes 2 skeins so, I need at least 2 skeins of the same color.  The more the better though.  Any colors.  But heather greys, creams, tans and chocolate colors would be my first choice in colors. 

~star wars fabric. Already received in previous round-but more appreciated.

~Pug fabric. Like this https://www.etsy.com/listing/181639948/packed-pug-pups-on-black-pure-cotton?ref=sr_gallery_20&ga_search_query=pug&ga_page=3&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery Or perhaps like this https://www.etsy.com/listing/213339584/pugs-kisses-from-michael-miller?ref=sr_gallery_38&ga_search_query=pug&ga_page=3&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery
I already received some-but Im a pug addict so I can always use more.

~glow in the dark fabric paint

~Snape sign. https://www.etsy.com/listing/221202199/always-snape-and-lily-harry-potter?ref=sr_gallery_4&ga_search_query=harry+potter&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery

~Harry Potter edition yarns by Opal. 

~Those washable markers that quilters use

~One of those clear acrylic quilting square template things.  You know, the ones quilters trace around.  I can not cut a proper square and I suspect this tool would help.  LOL.

~A fabric jelly roll.  Reds/blacks/whites especially.  But any colors that are good quilting cotton would be fine too.  Just as long as the fabric isnt that skimpy almost see through kind. 

~Sock yarns.  Any brand, any color.  Especially any self striping like Kroy FX or other similar ones.

~all shades of grey super bulky yarns.

~white super bulky yarn.

~gift card to Ravelry

~faux fur fabric.  yd or more.  I will be making some lion mane hats for some dogs.  I had some faux fur, but the back side was rough and stiff and not very soft.  Id like some of the faux fur that the back feels soft against your skin.  Side note-any color of faux fur would be great-because I can use odd ball colors for monster stuffies.

~zoomigurumi books

~washi tapes.

Fun extras:

~Mojito Elephant ear bulbs or sprouts.  They are the ones with black/green marble-ish look to the leaves.  I am having a heck of a time finding them here.

~super hero comic books for the kiddos collection.  Star Wars ones would be extra awesome

~Any things with a pug, harry potter or tattoo theme.  Cards, stickers, figurines, ect.

~Some of those Tattoo Coloring  books I have seen on Amazon.

~Educational/puzzle type toys for dogs.  LOL.

~Stuff toy monkeys.  The kind with long legs and arms-my dog loves them.  LOL.

Thank you in advance for claiming me!

I claim rscowtown for handcarved stamps (due out May 29)

This is my second claim this round.
1/0/0
Averia for a surprise (due out May 16)
rscowtown for handcarved stamps (due out May 29)

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 (except for a few dust bunnies and maybe the odd spider).

My favourite colours are black (esp. for wearables), dark teal, deep purple, dark brown, cream & taupe (sand, milk, stone, wool... think nature), and pink. So: darker intensive or lighter bland colours. I use those colours for the kids as well (but they also get bright ones, like light green). I like plain fabrics, or (stylized) 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!

Please keep in mind that I love miniatures! So if there is something you want to make, but shipping costs are too high, maybe it would also work out on a small to tiny scale? Especially if it's supposed to go on the wall.

Sewn
O Mug rug/s! It doesn't have to match anything, knock yourself out! Some ideas here http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/artwork-hoopla-inchie-inspiration/, but you can go with anything I mentioned in this list, my profile, or whatever you would like to make! I would love lots of different ones! A very plain or simple set of two or four, or a quilted or embroidered one, a sheep or a penguin, or...! (Thanks frosty772! But of course more are appreciated!)
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/ I have a leafy green/cream one already that keeps getting claimed by my daughter, now I'd love one for myself, maybe in black/teal/purple?
O File folder pillow http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495877363/ (for those 2 minute breaks when I have to clear my head!) (I'll gladly take care of the stuffing!)
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 from this pattern already, and I love it!)
O Quiet Book pages to go into a A5 two-hole-folder (15x20cm, 6x8"). Closure learning type would be good, but anything is welcome! https://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279497260440/ I'll gladly do the punching & put grommets in! Of course I realize that even one page can be much more than a medium, depending on...
O If anyone has a nice dark jersey (solid or patterned) and maybe a serger, I'd love a very simple, plain tunic. It would have to be pretty large, though, XXL or XXXL.
O Binding or bias tape: patterned or solid, scrappy or single colour, from a fat quarter or a long strip from a sheet...
O reusable/washable Swiffer duster fleece thingies

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 Cowl, maybe like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279496399557/ - cream, or grey, or taupe, or dark teal, or dark purple... but these colours are always good! For anything!
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  50cm/20" or (or 60cm for me!) in grey or a nice cool brown shade, or in crochet http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495143479/ (or the crochet pattern)
O Knit berry baby hat http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/berry-baby-hat for heads 50cm/20" (in a similar soft purple or strawberry red; if you add pips in the strawberry: yellow please!) (we already have a by now too small raspberry pink one!)

Other
O recipe cards (about 6x8" (15x20cm, A5) or smaller)
O mini stamps for "filofaxing" - appointments, birthdays, dates, movies, etc. - also work well for greeting cards (one piece of bunting, a candle, a cake or cupcake...)!
O a kind of suncatcher or mobile for the girls, so it can be very colourful and all sparkly! Maybe just chandelier drops? We have those in the kitchen window and are enjoying the little rainbow fishies... Anyway, ladybugs, butterflies and dragonflies a plus! maybe single pendants or strands to hang in their windows...
O stamps - a simple leaf design, or swirls. also maybe a pretty blossom in parts, or one of those castle stamp sets
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 Pillowcases: 40cm/16 inch square, some examples here: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381076/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381077/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381087/ or here http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/artwork-hoopla-inchie-inspiration/
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. Maybe somthing from here as an inspiration? http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/artwork-hoopla-inchie-inspiration/
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 Embroidery hoops! All sizes, especially 4-8" - but if you have a smaller or larger one, those are very welcome, too!
O (Organic) essential oils: Lavender, bergamot, jasmine, camomile, rosewood, vetiver & immortelle (I think), lemon verbena. Plus I love vanilla, white musk, damask rose.
O cotton/satin ribbon or twill tape (plain or patterned, printed, embroidered...) to hem kiddie skirts or pants, pieces of 25" or longer would be good
O embroidery floss: especially blacks, whites, creams, regular and pastel colours (for care bears etc.)! 
O Fabric paint (my favourites: silver, 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! All the colours at the moment I could especially use black, blues, greens.
O Binding or bias tape (bought, 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 Wooden or glass beads from 3mm to 10mm, any colours/shapes
O Shaped beads: Drop/teardrop shapes, hearts, leaves (glass, metal, pottery, clay, wood...)
O Tea and spice tins / tea caddies https://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495377698/ 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, and the little one has by now joined her! If anyone has tiny ballet slippers or shoes (just for play, they won't stand on pointe yet!) that their original owner has grown out of or doesn't use anymore, we would love to receive/swap/whatever! She's been watching the Nutcracker (Balanchine version) over and over again and Barbie Swan Lake and is constantly asking everyone to dance with her.

If you want to claim me for something that is not on this list, don't worry and just go ahead! Chances are I'll realize how desperately i wanted it anyway as soon as you claim me for it! So: Thank you for claiming me!

I claim Anne for busy book pages

3 claims, 1 sent, 0 received

About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, 2 guinea pigs, and a box turtle.

For most things, I would prefer items inspired by my pinterest instead of exact duplicates.

I am a huge fan of Loki, Firefly/Serenity, steampunk, and the color blue in all shades. Most rooms in my house are white or beige with blue accents, my living room is pale green. I need some color. I'm trying to make our house feel something like a beach cottage (even tho we are about 30 minute drive from the Chesapeake bay) but the house has more of an overstuffed, cluttered, lived in feel.

We have no allergies here (other than awful ragweed allergies... but can't see that as much of an issue in swap packages)

Please feel to claim me for anything on my Please make this for me boards on pinterest (http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me/ http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-knitcrochet/ or http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-embroidered-bits/

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.
