crafted clothing and accessories
black knit/felted purse- to hold wallet, checkbook, cell
stenciled or embroidered tee (medium) I prefer black or a bright color. No white please, I have a 3 year old!
skirt- pencil or a line
reconstructed shirt - inspired by supayana (supayana.com) but with a darker vibe. No pastels please.
headbands. sewn is preferred. solid or mod/contemporary patterns

Random crafted things

something to make my office desk fun. a cute deer like ashnebly makes. If it could stand that would be awesome.

knit in the round kit
resin kit (I would be so happy if this was granted)
needle felting kit with instructions
journal making kit

shrinkydink paper
fabric- old skool cowgirl, day of the dead, japanese, mod, contemporary, geometric.
jewelrey making supplies- beads, findings, chain

household stuff

thick oven mitts
wall art- my downstairis very modern. I have browns, blacks, grays, greens and creams. Upstairs is very ethnic- africa, india, south america, southeast asia all mixed up.

more info to help you out: I love bright colors and black is my best friend. NO pastels or khaki. I love tribal, rockabilly, retro and urban inspired clothing. I also love tattoo's. I live with my husband and 3 year old daughter in the middle of the ocean, 3000 miles away from the US.
Thanks so much in advance!!!

I'm in New York and here's my list:

1- Amy Butler type of fabric- actually any type of fabric you have- preferably about a yard long.

2- A bag like this:


3- A journal with mixed paper like this:

4- Felt bead necklace like the purple one in the link below.

5- A clutch that has the same shape and style as this one:

6- A painting inspired by Monet to dress up my bedroom.

7- Anything Kenshin related. What can I say except for my boyfriend is an anime geek. Hehe.

8- I'm trying to save up money so a cool budget book. Maybe you could even add a couple of hundred dollar bills in there too...hehe.

9- A diy kit for sewing a specific project that you are good at. I'm a beginner sewer and I work well with patterns but I would love to learn some new projects. For example: If you're good at making Jordy bags or a certain type of skirt than you could send me a picture filled tutorial and some materials to aid me. I can make a lot of basic things so I would love learning something with more difficulty. If you need me to be clearer you can PM me.

10- A wallet made of some big bold flower fabric [not paisley flower like] Pretty please!

11- A girly knee-length flowy skirt that isnt asymmetrical [those look weird on me] - I'll pm you my measurements. My test of a great skirt is if it twirls nicely   Grin

12- DIY papermaking or stencil kit. I'm loving the kits that you guys put together- every one I've gotten has been incredibly amazing!

13- A knitted headband like this one:
I love the colors used in it too.

14- I love everything about this orange clutch:

15- Supplies for scrapbooking and/or paper for bookbinding. Yea! More supplies! Thank you to whoever picked me  Grin

16- Decorated storage/organization boxes

17- Necklaces. mjadams made me a ton of beautiful ones in a blue scheme. I would love some more like those but in the red/plum family Smiley

18- Any type of stuffy or bag

19- Sublime stitching patterns- XbelovedXoneX just gave me an awesome kit for embroidery kit with patterns but a girl can never have too many.   Grin

20- A surprise!

About me: I'm 22 and I'm going for my masters in early education. I work at a daycare center in a classroom filled with four year olds. I love to knit [beginner], crochet, cook, and sew. I want to broaden my crafting horizons though so I want to learn some new things. I love dark gem-like colors, especially blues, plums, and reds.  I'm a simple girly-girl. I think this picture best sums up my style: http://static.flickr.com/31/63660763_ae87a69fec.jpg?v=0

I like that pretty kelly-st. paddy's day green too. I love skulls. And pirates. I think I was a pirate in my past life. I guess I'm a cross between a pinup obsessor- a riot grrl and a dead girl!

Thank you very much, to anybody who picks me. I really appreciate it! Oh, and I live in England.

+ A handbag/purse. I'd really like one to take with me when I go to Vancouver next month, and that I can also use for everyday use anyway. I'll PM you for more details, but this is something that I'd REALLY like, so...if you're good at making purses...
+ A pirate doll, like this one:
Or a mermaid doll, like this one:

+ Some hair candy. I'm growing my hair so it's fairly long, and VERY thick, and I can only pin it back,. I'd love some hair clips like kanzashi or crochet flowers to stick in. Or even just some kanzashi pins full stop, it's so beautiful. THANK YOU! Very much Smiley

+ A journal with mixed paper, so that I have an incentive to write my diary more. Please could it be either a red/gold/aqua theme, or purple/green/silver.
+ I'd really like some stud earrings. You could put buttons on. (I LOVE buttons!) But please could they not be too huge? I don't want to look too 80s, because that would mean that I'd look like my mum. And we're too similar as it is. THANK YOU batgirl! Smiley

+ Some altered altoid tins. I was in the swap, and now I'm addicted. They're so amazingly creative!
+ A stencilled or silkscreened top. I can't think off the top of my head what I'd want, but maybe typewriters, or, erm...(I have typewriters on the brain). Oh, and this T-shirt is just adorable, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=74987.0
+ I am very actively creative - as well as being a crafty kid, I'm an artist (or rather, art student Grin), I play the cello & piano, and I <i>used</i> to write. A lot. But knitting and sewing has taken over my life. I would really, really appreciate a package to inspire me, and get me writing again. Because the fact is the last time I took pen to paper, to write a poem, was several months ago. And that is NOT good. Sad

+ Something which would make me feel beautiful. I know that I am not ugly, but sometimes I feel very plain. I don't know whether you'd make jewelery, a fantastic bag, a broach, or something entirely different, but I would like something which tells me that I am just as pretty as those models out there.
+ Handspun or hand dyed yarn. (You don't even have to have done it yourself, but I lust over it.)

+ Fabric which has fun prints on (fruit, florals, vintage images, things, you know) to make totes and things with.

+ Lotiera cards, The images are so cool!

+ Supplies and bits-n-bobs for making shrines.

+ Typewriter themed goodies! I absolutely love this set, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=81377.0;topicseen , it's so beautiful.
+ Playing card themed goodies! As in ace/spade/heart/diamond. Don't know why but I love this theme at the moment.
+ I'd really like to learn how to needlefelt! I admire it so much, but I can't find supplies anywhere locally. Sad
+ Dying yarn with koolaid. We don't get koolaid in England (Well, it's like 70p a packet, which is about $1 or so, and you can only order on the Internet.) and I'd love to have a kit in which I could dye a skein or two of wool into zingy colours Smiley
THANK YOU, Batgirl! Again!
About me: I'm 14, at school still (year 10/9th grade) and my favourite subjects are art, French & English Lit. I love writing, and I play the cello and piano. I'm very chatty, and my new obsession is sewing totes!

* Shrinky dink sheets (esp. some clear ones) Yay - at last I get to try these out!

* A needle felting kit

* Tunturi hat like this http://www.shelby.fi/forum/viewtopic.php?t=18 pattern -> http://www.shelby.fi/kaava/403/403_pattern_A4.pdf

* Wallet that will hold a couple of cards, notes and some change - like the super cute wallet with a change pocket (just a small one for when I don't want to take my huge wallet out with me).

* A 'how to make felted beads' kit OR a bracelet with felted beads like the green & pink ones at the bottom of the first post here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21330.0

* A button necklace like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=72603.0 in bright jewel toned colours maybe, or all silver buttons, or all gold buttons - you get the idea.

* I know this is a huge ask - a bright coloured felted bag, basket style.

* A resin bracelet with female superheroes. Like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=33776.0 or the ones with elastic - whatever, even just one resin 'bead' with some kind of bracelet band.

* A beaded cuff like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=43007.0 or this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24646.0

* A button cuff & necklace like these https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6141.40 (half way down the page).

* A cha cha bracelet kit (I've got the tools, but I really need the base) https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=79201.0

EDIT (I'll add some more)

* A CD necklace like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=8959.0, or the ready-made cd pieces to make it (I tried, but I couldn't get it to work for me)

* A funky chunky cocktail ring like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69796.0 - I love the blue one but I'd like any colour!

* A crochet and bead necklace - I love the 2nd and 3rd (I like the 1st one too!) https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=82177.0

* A mixed paper journal like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=57967.0

* A shibori felted scarf - how cool is that?! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=52401.0

* A reversible ribbon belt https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=75711.0

* A beaded cuff bracelet https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=80542.0- I know, HUGE ask

EDIT (added some more)

* Felt cuffs like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=79198.0

* A felted necklace along these lines https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=79198.0

* A beaded ring like the top one here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=80693.0

Little Things

* A knitting needle guage with mm on it
* A tapestry needle
* Some big, bright funky buttons that I can make rings with
* A couple of flower shaped sequins (only a few) in bright colours.
* A couple of different coloured small glass pebbles (I can only find large quantities of one colour and I just want 2 or 3 in different colours) - not the iridescent ones - with flat bottoms.
* Yarn scraps (1 foot and over - all colours)
* Small bits of scrap polymer clay (I want to try it out and I think it would be best to have a few little bits of different colours to start with)

I'll be adding more as I think of them.

About me: I love jewel toned colours & black (I have a real thing about orange & black and bright orange with hot pink) - no pastels or fluoros. I really like yarn that's variegated. I don't like cutesy things and I'm not a very girly girl (although, I am nearly always wearing some kind of funky necklace). I love animal prints (esp. tiger prints!)

Thanks in advance to anyone that chooses me!!
