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.

Do not post in this thread until you are approved for the current round and ready to make a claim. All discussion needs to be kept in the discussion/gallery thread.

The size of the claim 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.

For claims: 1st time swapper 1 claim (until package is in transit with proof). Regular Swapper 2 claims (until package is in transit with proof)Friend of Craftster 3 claims (until package is in transit with proof)

Its not required but highly encouraged to post regularly in the discussion thread. This is so we know youre still around and it can also be fun  Wink

Ongoing Wish Claim Limit:
Friend of Craftster: Three
First time swapper: One
Everyone Else: Two

If you are a friend of craftster you can have 3 ongoing claims open at a time and no more than 6 total claims open (open meaning in transit as well as not yet received) no matter how many have been posted. As an example, You claim 3 times, send all 3 claims out, 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.

If you are not a friend of craftster, you can have at most 2 claims ongoing and 4 claims total between ongoing and in transit.

If this is your first swap, You can have at most one claim in transit and one claim ongoing.

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


About Wish lists and Claiming:

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.

Please start off with a quick introduction that includes your country and any allergies you have.

When claiming please pay close attention to your partners hope list and allergies, likes, dislikes etc.

Have your list including  10 medium crafted items AND 10 supply items ready before making your swap claim (the more you have, the better your chance of getting claimed quickly).  Add misc items such as tea, candy.... If the swap slows down and your list is up for a full week without being claimed please add a few wishes.



1)  PM the organizer when 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

2) 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 either PM the customs number on your receipt from the post office or upload a copy of your post office receipt.

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

4) Feedback will be given once all of your packages have been received.

5) Please post pictures in the discussion thread when you receive so you can make us all jealous and give thanks to whomever claimed you (this is just good swapping etiquette). If you will not be able to post pictures please let your claimer know asap so that they can take pictures before sending.

Starting with the last list from 152

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/
