Claiming audio for part 2 of kitchen items, because the thing I thought I was going to make a pair of is taking forever, but I still would like to send a pair, & maybe an extra...
due 4/9

OWS wishlist

Hi, I'm Ann, in Maryland (US), introvert mother of a little extrovert 6yo, maker of stuff especially machine embroidery.  Allergic to tobacco (please don't send unwashables if someone in your house smokes.)  No earrings or strong scents, please. Reused/thrifted/recycled/etc supplies always encouraged if you have them.

colors for me: anything nature-inspired especially dark greens. My daughter is super fond of pink, floral anything, & pale yellow/gold.

**I would love little care packages-- whatever you think the modern crafty equivalent is of, say, a mix CD and a weird toy or new gel pen & a ziplock of cookies. Something happy, silly & low commitment. Fond of fun fabrics (little bits fine), ephemera, stickers, decorative machine threads, tiny stamps, embroidered patches, fun art supplies, etc, see also most of the links below. Smiley

*anything off my swap pinterest, here: https://www.pinterest.com/interfacemasque/swap-ideas/

*headwrap scarves in stretchy knit non-animal hair natural fibers (so, cotton unless you have silk or linen knits floating around!) like these: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/523895369135756924/ ...solid is fine, patchwork or fun patterns are great too. (I love the look here: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/523895369149579254/)

*Midori-style notebook fun (traveler size); I could use pockets, a pencil pouch or other holder, recycled-paper inserts (especially if they're something a ball-point pen can easily write on; I have some cool scrappy ones from calluna that are more arty), or another cover to store filled inserts.

*Sturdy magazine holders-- we got one as a Highlights freebie that's made of nylon fabric with stiffening in the sides, and pockets to insert stiffeners to the front & back so it folds flat when not in use. The cereal box ones from kittykill's quickie tutorial are cute, but won't last in my daughter's chaotic orbit.

*we can always use more reusable snack bags.

*fun bobbypins, especially ones where the decoration goes straight off the end instead of being stuck to the side, like these: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/523895369146945163/ or these: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/AdEPf2iwoQ2nJ8-yFk9EOXW89SNgbrsSN4DRApphlT7ENAjiDyH_HaU/

*Something inspired by my paleoart pinboard: https://www.pinterest.com/interfacemasque/doggerland-paleoart/

*Gift certificates to Urban Threads, Embroidery Library, or etsy are always welcome to fund my machine embroidery habit.  Decorative thread is great, too.

*Anything from my etsy supplies list, either bought or crafted: https://www.etsy.com/people/thanate/favorites/suppliest/

*Something inspired by my wild things out of the wild wood pinboard: https://www.pinterest.com/interfacemasque/wild-things-out-of-the-wild-wood/

*funny little dolls (human or not, could also be wild things etc)- I'm particularly fond of jointed paper things or these little stuffed ones: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/523895369149453986/

*Unscented soy or beeswax candles, any size, containers or tealights preferred. Random containers like old tea tins/broken handled mugs/etc are great.

*small tabletop zen garden w/ mini rake & lid to keep the dust out (& the sand in!) anything from altoid tin sized up to ~8 square as long as the rake is in scale.  Smiley

*eco-glitter or fair trade/ethical mica powder (or 3rd hand mica powders, if you're destashing)... am trying to get sparkles without microplastics or child labor.  So far the only companies I know who do this are based out of the UK: resin8 & EcoGlitter Fun both have etsy shopfronts.

*Currently drooling over these Darn Good Yarns (similar things ok): sari silk ribbon yarn,  especially pickled pear
cotton t-shirt yarn(irish dream of course)
lace weight silk yarn, especially watercolors, exotic rainbow, date night, and maybe tidepool.  (their enchanted forest is very blue which makes me sad)
recycled silk lux adventure irish hills, maybe indigo amethyst.

*If you have any kiddie craft sorts of beads or fake flowers  or play food that you're looking to destash, my daughter would love them. (but she already has tons, so don't make/buy us new ones, please!)

*Viking-style glass beads, some historical & reproduction examples: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/799600108812987732/  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/799600108812987722/ https://jelldragon.com/collections/viking-beads/ (and if you have pink lampworked beads, my child would jump on them, accurate or not)

*rubber stamp or linoleum carving blocks; I just carved a stamp for the first time in ages & that was fun. Smiley

*a sturdy mortar & pestle for pigment grinding

I claim Grab a coffee for wirework jewelry (due out April 13)

This is my first claim this round.

Hi, my name is Anne. I live in Bremen (in Germany!) with my husband and two daughters.

My favourite colours are black (esp. for wearables), then dark teal, deep plum/purple (love soft and cooler shades), and for accents on black teal, purple, cream, taupe, or pink. Black will always be the perfect choice! I like plain fabrics, or (stylized) patterns like leaves and blossoms; irregular polka dots... I prefer cotton or other natural fibers over acrylics. Repurposed and/or used is always fine. Also I'm happy to receive mixed or supply only-claims!

Seems I have a bit of a horading problem online too, so here are a few Pinterest board recommendations so you don't have to wade through all of them: my Craftster Pinterest wishlist. Other good boards: Jewelry or T-shirts I love the shirts I've received so far and am wearing them constantly. But I still want more!

I love miniatures! So if there is something you want to make but shipping would not work, maybe it would work out on a small to tiny scale? Think inchies, twinchies, rinchies, ATC, OTT. art board Also I have a doll house, and a doll house for that

Embellished / Decorated Shirts
I love a round, wide neckline and 3/4 sleeves (or long), but tees are always fine, too. Love both cotton with a bit of stretch as well as cotton only; also thinner fabrics and viscose. Women's plus size 26-30 or 3x-5x. I'd love stencilled/drawn/painted/appliqued/embroidered etc. shirts (printable iron-ons tend to get destroyed in our washing machine). I've also received some awesome vinyl iron-ons that I did put on my own shirts, they work great, too! Black, grey and white are good, so would be a dark plum or greenish teal. Some specific wishes:
O Labyrinth! Jareth, or a quotation, or... preferably in black and white (or a teeny bit glittery?)
O Rickroll shirt... Or can just be Rick Astley, without the rolling... Wink
O XKCD t-shirts (esp. grownups, counter-clockwise, baby, natural parenting)
O Calvin & Hobbes (esp. selective reality, last minute panic)
O Discworld! Can be just a quotation, or anything really (Vimes, Death, Vimes & Sybil, Vetinari, Angua, UU, Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, Tiffany Aching, Death, Great A'Tuin,...)
O Books!

O Medium sized Pleated Tote, a very dark deep purple would be a favourite, or emerald/teal, or black is always good!
O Tote/purse (with a zipper closure if possible) like one of these: Buttercup Bag; One Hour Bag
O Something printed/stamped/embroidered with (tiny?) stars on it: A tea wallet, a notebook, a small zippered purse or tampon wallet, pouch, wallet, a earbud case, pendant, grocery tote, anything! or Dandelions! If you have a fabric with a pattern like that thats perfect, too!
O Little cozy for daughters' iPods (2"x3") with space for cords/earbuds. Could use two of those.

Knit or crochet
O Plain deep plum/purple loop or cowl (can be a lot shorter and from the simplest pattern; but that shade of purple is gorgeous!) https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279507160525/
O Plain deep plum/purple hat https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279498941677/ (or even better like the colour of the loop!)
O Plain deep plum/purple mittens, fingerless gloves or wristwarmers
O or others... https://www.pinterest.de/pin/3518505933393761/
O An (otherwise fast and easy) knit hat or cowl with a leaves overlay like this! knit leaves
O Balaclava hat or something with earflaps!
O Entrelac socks https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279507162744/
O Spiral heel socks https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279493860489/
O Love socks https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279495718918/
O Any socks really, cable, plain, self-striping, knit or or crochet... I wear socks in bed, so am not very rough on them https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279500149176/

O Anything Labyrinth (esp. Jareth!) for me... painted, sketched, etched, crochet, knit, Fimo, sewn, beaded, woven, whittled, embroidered, whatever!
O Flat dark stone pendant with 4 crystals (or glittery glass) like this (two smaller, two larger) Flat dark stone pendant with crystals 4 glittery things (2 larger, 2 smaller) to represent my family I do have the rhinestones, but cant drill stone
O Glow-in-the-Dark Tree of Life Pendant
O Mini hooplas or tiny art inchies, rinchies, twinchies in your favourite medium. Those make great pendants! I don't wear brooches, but I have lots of supplies to make a necklace from your piece of art! All t-shirt ideas would work very well for this, too!Maybe somthing from here as inspiration,
O Discworld related jewelry!

O Screen printing kit (I would so love to try this!) like https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279495377960/ or https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279495377967/
O Gelli printing I'd love to try that!
O Loom knitting HOW TO I do have looms (circles and straight ones) but don't know how to knit on them. Especially how to get knit things off the loom!
O Medium to tiny hooplas/wall art (because there is no space for a real hoopla wall and I love tiny things!). So basically inchies or rinchies in your favourite medium. Maybe somthing from here as an inspiration? Inspiration Board
O Greeting Cards stars always welcome! Can be themed (Christmas, Thank You, Birthdays for example) or just "plain" https://www.pinterest.de/annawahnsinn/karten-cards/
O This Pottery Yarn Bowl is my absolute favourite (the colour, the little stars!), but I'd also love a different one, or 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 (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 A quirky, or beautiful, or themed or fun seam ripper (can never have enough of those!)

Supplies (scraps or used is fine, as are supply only claims!)
Amazon Wishlist
O Fabric with a tiny attern: stars, hearts, spots, polka-dot, vines, leaves, flowers, hearts, cute animals
O Metal stamping blanks & stamps (especially filled AND/OR hollow stars (1.5 - 5mm), a dandelion set (flower & fluff) or plain FILLED heart stamps (because I now have "hollow" hearts in 1.5, 2, 3mm)
O Roving (Mrchenwolle, unspun wool) for needle felting to mend knit sweaters and hats https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279507052689/
O Always: cotton/wool/viscose/linen/natural fabric! (esp. solid black!, teals; purples, or smaller patterns)
O Always: Sewing thread or embroidery floss. All the colours.
O Embroidery hoops! All sizes. I don't have any really tiny ones, and 4-8 is great for Craftster projects.
O Punches: 1 inch square, circle, star, 2 inch square, star, circle; stars from tiny to huge, snowflake 1" or larger
O Fabric paint or pens (plain, glittery, metallic or pearlescent) - I love the kind that doesn't have to be ironed to fix the paint. Some just have to dry for a few days, others go into the oven.
O Very specific: Twinings tea tins or Bahadourian spice canisters. Also small/tiny tinnies such as Altoids https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279495377711/ https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279497855990/
O gift card/voucher/coupon for Sayila.nl, Beadworks UK, Beadaholique UK, or Etsy
