Glad to be back for round 2!  Here's my list:

1.  A tablecloth for my dining room.  Something retrolicious to go with my orange/yellow/avocado vintage placemats.  About 60"x80" would be primo.

2.  A bag or purse made of something never intended to be a bag or purse.  Seatbelt webbing?  License plates?  Neckties?  Recycled billboard plastic (saw that one once & haven't forgotten)?  What's your creative idea? 

3.  A bag/purse that looks like something else.  Loved the baked potato purse dooney made.  I also love my purse that looks like a transistor radio, and one I saw that looked like a Chinese take-out carton.  Etc.

4.  Throw pillows!  I'd love Nancy Drew, or vintage exercise images (old pictures of groups doing gymnastics?  Jane Fonda workout?  Not the Tae Bo guy or something like that, though--I beg you), or something that would feel at home in the living room (maroon/avocado/camel--sounds odd, but it looks earthy and I love my old couch) or the bedroom (hunter green, deep red, and whatever), or something odd, or... surprise me.  I love quirky things.

5.  An "ironic tea cozy."  If you have a vision of what that is, then show me!

6.  Any retro ('70s or earlier) style purse Thank you, whoever you are![/b]

7.  A "professional" style of purse in a neutral color/style or with a geometric print. 

8.  A jewelry box with compartments, to keep things from tangling.  I don't care whether it has drawers, or stacked boxes, or little cubby compartments--just something to help avoid the tangles.  Oh, and no earring holders--I don't have pierced ears.

9.  And why not more necklaces to help me fill a box like that?    Bracelets are nice, too, but I have tiny wrists (5 1/4", I believe).

10.  Something to contain my paintbrushes, so I'll keep them all in one place more easily.

11.  Things to hold back my hair.  I have a small head and fine hair, so barrettes should be smallish.  I think I'd enjoy soft headbands, but nothing rigid (those give me headaches)--like something knitted, perhaps.  The only person on earth less "Paris Hiltonian" (yep, I made up that word... too tired) than I am is probably, um, Dick Cheney--but I like the hairnet thing she "inspired" on Craftster.  And the argyle one I saw recently.  Okay, enough with this.  Something to hold my hair back and make it look less ratty, and that won't give me headaches.

12.  Retro/kitsch decor for my kitchen.  The cabinets have funny decals from, probably, the 1940s.  I find them really charming.  I'd like a little help to decorate more in the kitchen with a 1940s/1950s kitsch style.  I'm working with some cookbooks and old advertisements and I have a clock shaped like a percolator coffee maker, but I'd love more help from a Craftster!  Could be something for the walls, or something for the quarter-round shelves above the stove, or whatever else would work in a small kitchen.

13.  Cool duct tape crafts.  I work with a student who is MacGyver-like in his skill making duct tape desk accessories.  I'd like to show him some other cool things people know how to do, because he really gets inspired by people's suggestions.  Wallet?  Purse?  Flowers?  Folders?  It would be great if they're things that he could look at and use as inspiration to make simple versions himself (and maybe I could, too! Smiley).  And maybe a few pointers for working with duct tape...

14.  OOH!  I have to edit to add that I'd love a second pair of fingerless gloves/armwarmers.  I got a lovely pair in crimson, periwinkle, and dark gray from knottydottie a while back, and I'd love to have a second so they could go in rotation.  Something in a different color or colors than those.  Neutral, black, wild, ugly colors--I really don't care a bit.  My wrists and hands are very small, so you can pm me for any measurements you might need.

About me:  I can't think of a single color that doesn't have its place in my life.  I'd prefer not to be overrun by pinks or pastels, but they work in moderation.  I'm vegetarian, and I'm not fond of leather.  I love retro styling (especially '70s and earlier).  And I'm tired, and I feel I've written enough for now.

Here's my list.

My Wishlist
1.   handspun yarn or yarn that is plain old worsted weight (i.e. Red Heart) in skin and hair tones and colors for dresses for making dolls

Thanks for the laptop case, whoever picked me!

3.   a cozy for my cell phone or IPod like the little white critter one Janina made or a pale blue felted material with a little metal keyhole for the clasp
4.   knitted or crocheted fingerless armwarmers in a non-scratchy pale silvery gray or pale steely blue

Thanks for the brooches, whoever picked me!

6.   Stenciled t-shirts  (I would love one that said, I solemnly swear that I am up to
no good, or one with cute elephants going around the hem, or one that said, So
little to do, so much time.  Wait, stop, reverse that.)

 Thanks, BigMouth, for the collaged t-shirt!

7.   A bag; Id love an easy-peasy tote, Jordy, or slouch hobo bag; look at my little bio for style/color preferences; nothing too small or too big; just a tote to carry around on weekends and wear with jeans and a tee
8.   A SURPRISE!!  Something functional (preferably wearable, but let your imagination go wild), maybe
9.   Necklaces like the following 3:
- the one here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=55686.0
- here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=47625.0
- and here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=65455.70
   I really like to accessorize simply, and uniquely.  Any of the above necklaces, or
some similar to them, would be awesome! I really like neat pendants (like
Chinese coins or the nice carved bone pendant in the fat girl thread) and I would
love a cluster pendant (someone posted one somewhere that was like a beaded necklace with this long cluster of blue beads on tiny silver chains, but I cant find it anywhere)

As for me, I'm 21, I am an English Literature major who loves Whitman (I actually have a mild obsession with Uncle Walt), Hawthorne, Poe, and Twain, and I have a dog named Huckleberry. Crazy fact about me: I worked with monkeys my first year of college, and miss them terribly. I am part Native American, and I also love Native American Lit.  I can sew and crochet, and do photography, mixed media, a little jewelry work, and paint.  I love the simplicity of how Angelina Jolie dresses, and the dainty 40's ness of Kirsten Dunst in Spiderman 2.  I like things that look like they're from the 20s-40s (think The Hours) and interesting (but professional-looking- I'll start student teaching soon) accessories.  My favorite animals are fawns, monkeys, and bluebirds (and of course, Huck).  Here are my wishes:

Surprise me!  I bow to the Craftster genius!

My list is really long... not cause I'm greedy, I just want to give lots of options.

Wish List:

- Anything cat-related - Amigurumi, hat, bag, clothing, anything! - Toadstool, I love the hats! Thanks so much!
- DIY clothing - skirts (29-30" waist), shirts (corset???) (34B bust), anything like that - I like purple, black, funky patterns esp. camo, Hello Kitty, Dora the Explorer, anything like that (surprise me!) - a gothic lolita-style apron would rock
- Stencilled t-shirt - Size small/medium in a fitted style, use your logo or anything cute - A shirt that says "Crochet: My Anti-Drug" would be so amazingly cool!
- Anything related to Evanescence, System of a Down, Nirvana, or Hello Kitty
- Pillows... any kind, size, fabric, style, colour! I love them, and want to cover my bed with them!
- Stuff for my daughter - she's 4, wears a size 5, and loves Barbie, Dora, Hello Kitty, anything Disney, pink, purple, and blue
- Decorated/Hand-Made notebooks/folders - anything related to my likes would be really awsome, I collect notebooks and would love some handmade/hand-decorated ones
- These are so cute... if someone could make something like it I think I would die of happiness: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=75782.0
- Anything for my boyfriend... he's recently become pretty much homeless, and is lacking almost everything - screenprinted/iron-oned t-shirts/hoodies (size medium/large), with military, historical, or ninja-type images especially, but if you have any other ideas I'd love to hear them!
- Something nice for my kitty... a toy, pillow, a non-skid placemat for her food dish? She LOVES to drag her food across the kitchen, leaving a trail of food and water, so anything that can stop it would be awsome!

- Fabric Fat Quarters or 6"-12" quilting squares, remnants, yards... cotton, flannel, fleece, funfur, anything really, in licensed prints (Dora, Hello Kitty, Strawberry Shortcake, Pokemon, anything), camo, animal prints, cute kid's prints, or bright solid colours - as much as you like/want to send
- Grommet tape - any colour, 1-2 yards would be amazing
- Fabric appliques or iron-on/sew-on patches
- Clothing patterns needing a new home - Size 12/14 women's, 5-6 girl's
- Trims, fringes, ribbon remnants
- Yarn, scraps are awsome (I love making hippy/boho-inspired scrap scarves)
- Scrapbooking stuff - paper, stickers, die-cuts, 3D embillishments
- Buttons for clothing - anything really cute, although licensed characters would be the best, or military inspired

About Me:

I'm a 20-year-old university student in Ottawa, Canada, studying history and political science. I am really interested in 20th century history, and in various extremist political movements (Marxist communism, Maoist communism, National Socialism, etc.). I have a daughter who's four, and in french immersion kindergarten, and a cat who acts like a child. I love bright, cheerful colours, but also black and purple (No brown, though), and I love gothic lolita/punkish styled stuff. I love Hello Kitty, cute kid's cartoons, Disney, fashion, and cats. I love DIY clothing (I spend too much time surfing Ebay XD).

Thanks, hertrigger! You're doing a lot of work for this swap and we totally appreciate it!

Okay, here's my list!  Thanks for looking, craftsters!  Grin

Among other things, my goal for 2006 is to buy (borrow/steal) a sewing machine & learn how to sew so I can up the ante on my craftiness! Here is my crafty wishlist! Eventually, I'd like to learn how to make these too!

Hermione Hat in red - I have the pattern I just haven't had the chance to figure it out yet.
THANK YOU!!! Cheesy

Hello Kitty hat - I don't have a knitting pattern for this but I'd REALLY LOVE ONE!

a Koshi-himo - I'm totally drooling over these.

Pyramid Coin Purse

crochet cloche hat with flower

Drawstring pouch - If anybody can figure out the pattern, please let me know! http://www.fjx.co.jp/sewingcom/sewing/make3/saihoubag.html

stenciled t-shirt or just the stencil Id love one that says Something About Midnight my boyfriends internet radio show http://midnight.dj WOW. Thank you, mystery Craftster!!! Do you need more details? Should I mail you a shirt?

stuffie dragon, wolf or anything cute!

handmade journal - with a dragonfly or fantasy or music theme!

fleece lap blanket - I'd love one with a solid colour and something appliqued on it

monster pouch for my ipod mini

cluster pendant necklace

I'd LOVE any one of these made up with a dark fabric on the outside and lined with a bright colour ie. chocolate brown with pink or blue lining, black with a pale delicate floral lining.

a. Tote bag - about 11" x 12" - big enough for a notebook/binder THANK YOU!!! Meanbean, I can't WAIT!
b. Zippered Wristlet - more rectangular than square
c. Zippered MakeUp pouch - I loves these! - any fun flirty fabric you have would be awesome.
d. Zippered Pencil Case
e. any other cute bag/purse - jordy, messenger etc.

DIY kits I just have this need to know how to do stuff! Cheesy
e. crochet (I couldn't even learn from "Crochet for Dummies" as my friend pointed out)
f. Sewing ie. how to make a pouch!
g. Stenciling
h. embroidery
i. bookbinding
j. soap making

1. small/mini coin purse frames!!  I can't find them here! I'm dying to get some! Point me the way!
2. sewing notions
3. fabric - cotton, kimono, Japanese, silk georgette- whatever you have would be fantastic!
4. silver charms & star/leaf shaped beads
5. paper & ephemera
6. soy wax flakes
7. essential oils - do they have scents like apple, cinnamon, brown sugar, chocolate? I can't smell heavy floral scents without getting a big headache though.
8. paper casting
9. wool roving
10. yarn

I love anything related to Miyazaki movies, Disney movies and musicals.  I love fantasy & sci-fi books - so anything themed along the lines of faeries, monsters, elves, dragons, swords & majick would make me dance. I also love anything themed with cutesy flowers, animals, & dragonflies.  I like things simple, elegant and classic.  Thank you guys again for taking the time to look at all this shizz!
