Mmm.. swapping is fun.  Though thinking of stuff is always hard.

1.  A sock monkey or other funky stuffie.  Please give it a name.

2.  Cool buttons. I have some retro shell ones from my grandma, but I can't find her other funky ones and there are times things just need odd buttons.

3.  Zippers, I don't have time to look for them cheap, and I really think I should make another attempt at zippered bags.  Maybe a tutorial on how to not mess up the zipper part... Thank you!  I found some fabric I really want to make in to bags, so this is going to rock.

4.  Small pieces of funky fabric I can use for lining felted bags.  At least 1/4 yd.

5.  Suprise me. I love weird stuff I can put on my desk, or in our office/library.  I like frogs, vegetable theme'd stuff (see previous gallery for why... ) and odd things.  

6.  A needle felted garden gnome.   Not for the garden, just cool like that.

7.  labels to put in my crafted stuff.  Is there a way to make your own? I haven't figured it out.  My crafty name is Happy Veggie

8.  Anything cool and unique from a country other than the US or Canada, even if its a silly postcard.  I love getting mail, especially if it isn't from here.   - Picked twice now for this - Once for Australia, once for the UK Yay!!!! Thank you!- Leaving it on here because I love the stuff and can always use more.

I'm 28, live in Minneapolis, and I am a Craftster addict.  My life is pretty nuts right now, and doing this swap is part of what is keeping me sane.  I love to see what people do, and I love the fact that you can craft for someone and not expect anything in return.  I dig the crafting Karma that goes with that. I hate pastels, I love vibrant things that make me forget it is brown in winter here.

Hey-o! I'm in Ottawa, Canada.

A zip hoodie, plain or with a design.

A stenciled men's medium t-shirt, maybe with a design of Simon & Garfunkel, the Beatles, House (from the TV show), or BlackAdder.

A bag or shirt with Zapp Brannigan (from Futurama) that says "That blackish holeish thing".

A skirt like this.

A shirt like this.

A panta.

A bowling ball bag: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=64535.0

A slouch hobo bag: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=35575.0

A Jordy bag: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32204.0

A sewn knitting needle case, something like this: ]https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51175.0] but just for straights, or one just for dpns.

Yarn! Preferably natural fibres, but I am unable to get Caron Simply Soft here, so that would be nice to try. I am WAY into socks now, so some sockweight yarn would be wunderbar.

Handspun yarn! Oh pretty please. Or if someone dyes their own variegated/self-striping yarn, that would be amazing too.

Doubled-pointed needles in sock sizes. (US 2 and lower)

Any knitting or crafting magazines or books.

Quilting fabric - I am a total n00b so at least 4x4" please.

A DIY felting kit

A DIY stencil kit - thank you, mystery sender I do not know yet!

Something with a lime or lemon - stenciled or iron-on maybe some crazy amigurumi style crocheted one?

Something involving a mermaid - the mean kind of mermaid, the type that killed sailors. No Ariel here.

Anything involving Pirates of the Carribean or Jack Skellington (maybe something like this?) would be very cool.

Handmade soap - I love citrus scents.

I know this is going to sound really odd, but it makes sense if you have read the (awesome, incredible, life-changing!) book House of Leaves. I would like something with an image of an ash tree and the words: "This is not for you."

Stationery, especially stuff you make yourself

A piece of embroidery or cross-stitch or needlepoint - I am not sure if these are all the same - to put up on the wall.

Vintage knitting paraphernalia, including patterns and such.

A surprise!

About Me:

I'm 18 years old and living mostly in Ottawa, but sometimes in Vancouver. I'm a history major. I'm way into knitting but I also do some bookbinding and quilting and random crafting. My favourite colours are green and blue. My favourite design styles are tiki, fifties and old (around the twenties to the sixties) children's illustrations. I am also slowly getting into tattoo art. I love old sailing ships and the stories around them - think Horatio Hornblower or Master & Commander. I wear woman's size XL or men's size M shirt. I'm a big ole book nerd, especially Shakespeare. I don't wear much jewelry. There is always more info on my blog, in particular this post about swap info.

3. Vintage or retro print fabric

7. Leg warmers
8. A supayana style top www.supayana.com (pm me for sizes etc!)
9. Postage stamp/microscope slide necklace. I tried to make one, but my soldering leaves much to be desired

11. A knitting needle case like this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51175.0

About me:
Hello! I'm Tess, 22 from the UK. I pretty much love anything that's quirky and handmade! I love bright colours and bold prints, but I'm really not fussy at all! Any creative surprises would be wonderful Smiley

 Okay...I put off putting my list up for so long that we're already onto round two! lol So here we go.....

a sewn journal (the kind where the the covers are fabric sewn to board (at the end I"ll list some likes so you can get an idea of fabric)
  ....I prefer journals around the size of....4"-5" long on the top and bottom and 7" - 8" long on the sides......and at least 100 pages

*   a nice thick journal with mixed paper.....either fabric covered or made from a hardcover book (recon of hardcover book into a journal with mixed paper)

*   handmade stationary sets  (i'll list things for themes at the end)

* fabric.....I love sewing...making bags / purses. I love new fabrics, trying out new things.

*   any neat yarn or HANDSPUN yarn....I would just dye if I could get some handspun yarn...with the gorgeous colors and the little things like ribbon and pom poms and sequins and all kinds of stuff spun into it

*   clothes for my dog (she's a size Medium....if you need actual measurements PM me) .....t shirts with embroidery on them would be great for her

a tote bag or throw pillows or a wall shrine of my dog (I have many pictures on my computer I can send you...)

*   an embroidered art piece of my dog (once again I can send pictures of her).....she's very old (she'll be 15 in July)....and even though I want her around for at least 100 more years...it probably won't be that....so I would love art pieces with her as the subject that I can hang up

a slik screening kit....it doesn't have to be anything too fancy. I would love to silk screen bags but have no idea where to begin, plus next quarter there's a silk screening class at my school but I need experience with it before I can sign up for the class.....

plushies - I love seeing all these great stuffed things people make...I'll list things I like later

* sushi or steak themed  things - I would loooove messenger bags or tote bags (straps at least 23" long), pillows (ah! throw pillows in the shape of pieces of sushi and a steak! lol), journals, dog clothes, stationary, etc)

back issues of 'The World of Cross Stitching" or "Cross Stitcher"...both are British magazines (any issues but....The world...I have the one with an elephant feeding a robin on the front....and for 'crossstitcher'...I have the issue with two elephants sledding on the front of it....so any issues besides those two.) I would really like issue 101 of 'The world of Cross Stitching'...it has a bear baking on the cover...

*   something crafty with American Sign Language....like embroidered or something...cross stitch? with my name 'Danielle' - I'm taking ASL right now and it's really interesting...

*   Law and Order stuff!- I would love a tote or messenger bag (straps at least 23" long) with an image of Benson & Stabbler on it....the one from TV guide....where Stabbler's in a straight jacket...HOT. lol But anything Law & Order or Law & Order: SVU would be great!

birthday wishes and surprises! - oh oh oh! like a big felt birthday cake! or something. hehehe - my birthday is on Feb. 3 (ah next friday!) and it's another year I'm away from home with nothing to do or celebrate....so I'd love crafty birthday wishes and surprises!

If I think of more I'll edit the post...lol It's so hard thinking of things I want. lol

 My name's Danielle....turning 21 on friday (feb 3). I'm in Washington currently (a long way from home which is back in Vermont). I'm a student of The Evergreen State College.
  I have a dog, her name is Sara and she's a smooth fox terrier.
I love bats, images of - steak, sushi, cupcakes, cake. I absolutely adore kawaii stuff. I'm going to school to be a writer...a better writer. lol Typewritter images.
  As far as shows go....I like Law & Order, Law & Order: SVU, Nip/Tuck, Married with Children (swoon), Aqua Teen Hunger Force, OZ.
  I also love the Sims & Sims 2.
 Favorite colors: blue (any blue but pastel, neon, and navy), burgundy / wine, pink (any pink but neon, magenta, and pastel), black, olive green or a nice deep tree green.
  Colors I DISLIKE: yellow, orange, white
 Any other questions feel free to PM me!

Hi Everyone!! I just got approved for my second swap! YEAH!!

So here's the wishlist:


1. yarn - any kind really I'm almost out!!
2. jewelry findings (all silver - I hate gold metallic stuff) Thank you Kasie! REPEATABLE
3. silver chain
4. fabrics of any sort see below for colors, for patterns I like floral and geometric Thank you Kasie! REPEATABLE
5. zippers and your own instructions for best way to use them
6. stitch markers for knitting

Crafted stuff

1. A bag like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51662.0 in blue or pink, doesn't need to be vinyl as long as it's cute.  (my sewing skillz are not good enough for this)
2. A zipper pouch (makeup bag size) think sewingstars.com or stitchpixie.com (zippers elude me)
3. A set of hair sticks I have long hair but these need to be short-ish not full chopstick length
4. Big chunky beaded necklace PM me for length
5. Long chain earrings
6. Needle book
7. Stenciled shirt with a gun (walther ppk) and flowers (the S.O. knows how to stencil but damn if it's a little too much to get my head around) Women's Medium Please - but must be stretchy as I'm kinda curvy
8. Cast resin bracelet or necklace I don't have space/ventilation to cast resin.
9. Any jewelry I'm bored with what I have and the stuff I can make well bored with that too Tongue

Other non crafty stuff

1. A learn to knit book ( I know how to make a scarf but I've never followed any patterns)
2. A mix CD of electronica/techno/dance/dub/house stuff
3. A surprise see below for what I like.

About me almost 33 y.o. living in Hollywood. I love dogs, anything ultramarine blue or cobalt, computers, technology, the internet, sci-fi, anime, anything Japanese especially hello kitty and san-x. I don't drive, but I take the train to work subways ROCK! I'm pretty girly, but not lacey and froofy, think candy and pink. I love pink too.However, as an aged ex-goth/new wave chic I'm still addicted to black and all my techno style jewelry (think computer bits and lots of shiny stuff etc). My favorite designer style is Oakley, as in the sunglasses. Dragonflies are my favorite bug, but I'm not a nature girl I love the city pictures of tiny cute animals (like meomi.com) are awesome.  Dress wise, I do conservative but hip for work (I work at an internet company so I can't dress too stuffy) with mostly black, some grey, green, blue, orange, and pink. I'm a t-shirt and jeans girl at home. I hate aquamarine and turquoise.
 Wow that's long.

Oh and NO Disney related stuff

I'd consider myself REALLY lucky to get anything on this list - thanks ahead of time if anyone does send me something!!
