Swap name: The 2006 Wishlist April Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  irid3sc3nt
Sign-up date range: The end of April!  04/30/06
Date to send item by: Must send out item within 2 weeks of picking a partner
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No WAY!!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Of course!
All ages allowed? Or 18+?  Yes, just make sure its ok with the parental
Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders" list and
will not allow those members to participate:

This is a wishlist swap;  post a list and you may receive it! Smiley  Your list will need to consist of where you are from (it's okay to just put your state and/or country), crafted items that you would like (it helps greatly to include links to photographs, tutorials, etc.) and/or crafting supplies.

FIRST: You will look through the lists of the people
who have already posted.  You will THEN pick someone from
there to craft for.

SECOND: As soon as you have messaged me, the organizer,
telling me who you would like to craft for and your answers to the
I will tell you that you can post a list.

- to be able to post a list you have to craft for at least
  ONE person
- there must be AT LEAST 5 items on your list
- you can be picked as many times as you have items on
  your list
- if you have been picked 3 times, you have to pick one
  other person to craft for, then you can picked more..

Person B wants to have their list posted so they PM the organizer with their questionnaire answers, and what they want to craft from Person As list.  The organizer will then PM person B, give them person As address, then they can then post their list.
Person C wants to have a list up, so they choose from A OR B, PM the organizer their answers, the name of the person they want to craft for, and what theyre going to craft.   Then they wait until the organizer sends them the address of whom they have picked.  Then they can post their list.
Say person A has been chosen 3 times. For them to be picked more, they have to pick one more person to craft for.  The organizer (me) will let you know when you need to pick someone else if you want to receive more items.

This is different than the unconditional swap!!!
The unconditional swap is not expecting anything in return for what you have made. A lot of people post their lists without even making anything for someone, so to be able to post your list (and receive) you must craft for at least ONE person!

Hi!  I'm from Iowa, USA.  I'm 22 (23 on April 30th), I graduated last May from the University of Iowa with a doublemajor in English and Art and a minor in Art History.  I live here with my boyfriend of seven years and my kitty, Caliope.  In July, we're moving to Denver! I love to craft since I don't have enough room in the apartment to make art!
Oh, and I totally dig thrift items or stuff you just happen to have in your home.  I buy most of my stuff from thrift/consignment stores anyway.
Thank you in advance to whomever chooses from my list!


how-to needlefelt kit

Sakura gelly roll medium dark metallic pen--1 of each color: Black, Burgundy, Hunter Green, Sepia

any of the Sakura gelly roll pen soufle collection: http://www.gellyroll.com/products/pens/souffle/souffle.html

scissors that cut shapes like wavy lines, etc.  usually found in scrapbooking stores (i already own pinking shears)

any backissues of Real Simple magazine

print-friendly fabric (I guess you can get it at JoAnne's and it works like iron-on, only you're printing directly onto fabric!)

stamping ink-- i have black and the Tropical Color Box stamp pad
Thanks, rainbow_art!

magnetic sheetsthe thickness should be .30 inches thick or more, but still flexible enough to be cut.  I need them to be fairly strong because the last pack of generic mega-craftstore sheets I bought would not hold anything on the fridge and fell off all the time.

iron-on transfer paper

essential oils- no fragrances or parfum/perfume (I already have lavender, citronella, peppermint, tea tree, geranium, and neroli)

bunch o grapevine---  I have a sweet tutorial for making a mourning dove bird nest and a skep  (a beehive), but I don't have any grapevine and I'm not sure where to get it.

straight knitting needles (metal)--- Here's the sizes I need, but don't feel you have to get more than one pair:  US  7, 9, 12

regular ol threadlemon yellow, purple, and I can always use white.  I have bright orange, aqua, navy blue, lime green, and pink.  I prefer bright colors, but you never know when you may need a color!

CRAFTS most of these are on my wists list-- check there for links

A Boo hat!!!
citrus hot pads
Ice Cream Stationary
Egg in a Skillet Earrings
butterfly clips
kitten n yarn stenciled tank top
catnip catjar
Alice in Wonderland stamps
Ponytail ties
crocheted kiwi bird
slouchy hobo bag
kitty crinkle bag ---My kitty would luuuuv you!
Cat Sofa
crocheted flower barrettes
Hand-spinning kit
fun belt
Animal Crossing painted box
Naughty Toy Box

Felt kitty toys---I like the food theme such as this one

Mini Duffle Bag https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=7290.msg57201#msg57201

Knitted Hot Tamale Skirt--I would like it plain, no flames, and not black.

So-Fresh Carpet Cleaner---  This recipe is on page 55 of Jean Railla's book, "Get Crafty: Hip Home Ec"  I checked my copy out from the public library.

Small Trellis for Indoor Ivy---  It just needs something wavy/zigzag/etc. to climb up.

Knitted Cleaves---  I would love, love, love one of these!  A chocolate brown or Cascade 220 brown tweed #633.

Knitted Pumpkins

Mushroom Magnets--- How cute are these?! Your own interpretation would be cool.

stuffy-toaster with toast--- Something similar to this cute lil item.  If it could fit in the palm of my hand/your hand, that would be even cuter. 
or better yet, you could crochet me a toast w/butter and make it into a magnet (on my wist list)

tiny ink stamps---  One inch or smaller.  I have a flamingo that I adore

a necklace made out of those neat needle-felted balls in aqua and bright orange-- give me some balls to hang on my neck!  hahahahaha

Felted Marsupial Tote--- from Stitch n Bitch Handbook in aqua and orange

Stencilson tee-shirts size M-L (no white or black or red)--from the Jan 27th entry of: http://www.livejournal.com/users/irid3sc3nt
Haruko--portrait print, 7 or 8 inches tall on a brown t-shirt, the stencil in yellow
knitting needles--6x6 inches (along with) jab!--4x4 inches
Racing Girl--portrait print, 6 inches tall
Preying Mantis--landscape print, 6 inches long
Catgirl--portrait print, 5 inches tall (along with) scientific cat scratch--landscape print, 3 inches long

Send me a surprise! Thanks, urvi!

Hello hello! Here goes!

- Fabric  in the style of Amy Butler/Alexander Henry, or something that you see in Reprodepot fabrics

- Sublime stitching patterns.

- craft zines, or a zine that you made!

- sewing notions, like lace, rickrack etc..

- japanese sewing/craft books

- bag handles.

- a DIY crochet kit

Crafted items:

- A panta.  However, as I live in a tropical climate (it's hot in here!), I would prefer if you made it out of lightweight yarn or something that isn't so warm. Is that even possible?   Roll Eyes

- A big bag to cart my things around, which is a lot.
I love:

- Or a bag that's knitted/crocheted - since I can do neither. The fat-bottom bag from the Happy Hooker is LOVELY.

- or just any kind of bag that you make best.
THANK YOU !!!!!!

- A stencilled shirt, like :

- or a shirt with a stencil of any cute animal.

- Anything with a sewing machine theme

 - anything with a sushi theme.
- Buttons like these  - http://whammyindustries.com/ with slogans about sewing / crafting / baking / zine-making / anything feminist / anything political

- A crocheted Frou Frou / Unseamly Sweater / Blissful from the Happy Hooker?   (I'm small, if it helps. And I'll give a lot of Internet love back, plus more.)

- a necklace made from felted beads, or your felted beads.

- hair accessories, like the japanese flowers.

About me :

I'm from Singapore! I sew, decoupage badly, read a lot of magazines and spend way too much time on craftster & the computer. I like pink, white/black, some shades of purple and green. I also like owls, bunnies, and squirrels. I live for junk food like Pocky biscuits and Hello Panda in strawberry flavours. I'm slightly obsessive-compulsive, and can watch TV shows like Sex and the City/Gilmore Girls without ever feeling bored. I craft in front of the tv, sing loudly while I drive and use the steering wheel as a percussion instrument. I'm a feminist, and a road hazard.

Thanks for picking me!! YAY!

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. I need it sorta big too (my sewing skillz are not good enough for this)
2. HAIR STUFF - A set of hair sticks I have long hair but these need to be short-ish not full chopstick length - about the length of a bick pen without the cap on.
Headband and/or scarf in a fabric from list of favorite types.
2a A PANTA! Black please
3. These earrings: http://www.etsy.com/view_item_sold_anon.php?listing_id=115361&transaction_id=30358
4. Stenciled shirt with a gun (walther ppk-original james bond gun) 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
4a. You would be my best-est friend in the whole world if you made me this dress: http://www.elsewares.com/commerce/Russian-Owl-Dress_MPD302.html but instead of an owl, I want a Walther PPK!
5. Cast resin bracelet or necklace with a georgia o'keefe image (flowers not bones) I don't have space/ventilation to cast resin.

8. a totoro hat!! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=72078.0
9. a paper journal to carry in my purse, no bigger than 4x5. I've PM'd the wrong organizer 3 times in swaps now, so I need something to track them better.

2. A mix CD of electronica/techno/dance/dub/house stuff
3. A surprise see below for what I like. Yeah!! Thank you!!
4. Hello kitty anything

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!
Thanks ahead of time for being my Tinkerbell - and granting my wish!

hi! ive tried to make a list with good variety...i am a left over from last month (yes, i guess that is a bit of a pity plea)

here's my list... ahead of time huge thanks to any wish granters Smiley i love getting stuff in the mail and am so excited to finally own homemade stuff that i havent made for myself

*new improved and expanded list to add for more variety - take a look Smiley

* a stripey or argyle sock monkey

*flaxseed hot/cold pack (if it were scented with peppermint it would be that much sweeter)

* zipper pouches - any size or color...everyone keeps making fun of me for all of the ziplock baggies that i use to organize my diaper bag....i really need some of these - please help me to be able to hold my head up again...Thank you whoever you are! I really appreciate you choosing me for this! I am going to leave this on my list - you have no idea how many plastic baggies one can fit into a diaper bag

*a takeout menu binder

*a fun apron (with the full bib)

*something like this necklace www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=35012.0
with origami paper or cherry blossom print

*a big knitting bag of some sort to hold my current project would be great too, right now i use plastic bags...which between that and moving yarn is really more temptation than my cats can handle and makes life difficult ...something like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=84583.msg797844#msg797844 would be great, but really any big bag would be nice you would be a life saver if you would make me an awesome project bag...i really really want this! i like these bag shapes too...

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=82122.0 (but with handles)

*these bloo mittens https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=81651.0

* Anthropologie-inspired capelet (with a brooch would be a super extra bonus)

* messanger bag in fun fabric with pockets... you can never have too many of these...i would love it even more if it had matching zipper bags with it to help me organize....with a 2 year old and one on the way, you can never try to hard to be organized

*handmade journal...anykind.. .but i do love this one (in case you need ideas)

*DIY Bookbinding Kit

*a lap quilt or DIY kit to make one...any color scheme....even simple squares would be great... i would so do a happy dance and be your best friend if you grant this one....

*a surprise - something with glittery stuff... rhinestones in particular, but glitter does make everything better (it might be fun if you wanted to make me a maternity t-shirt...i just found out im pregnant...and there honestly is very little sparkly maternity stuff out there...i would probably wear a med or large ... though nothing tacky please - i would never be able to pull off "knocked up" or something like that Shocked )

*these ---> http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTpocketcreatures.html or something like them of your own creation...or a DIY kit for me to make them...i would love peppermint oil scenting them THANK YOU so much!!! i am really looking forward to getting these Cheesy i'm leaving this on the list pocket creatures can always use companions


*a trifold knit kit like this: www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=82733.60

*a velvet scarf like this  ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=65841.0 ) with some kind of retro or cutesy theme would also make me very happy

Fastest approval ever! Thanks, irid3sc3nt.

Here's my list. HUGE thanks to anyone who decides to craft for me.

-an eye pillow/stress pillow (but not denim please) with lavender or rice or flax seeds in it-- ideally something I can put in the freezer to make it cold

-a drawstring pouch (ideally lined), about the size of a 5x7 card, to hold my 'pod and headphones

-a Jordy bag in fun fabrics! maybe something Japanese-themed or kitschy? It would be great if it were big enough to carry a hardcover book.

-a circular needle holder would be fantastic.

-a change purse that would also hold bills. Corduroy or a darker fabric would be great. Something fun. Maybe embroidered, if you're into that?

-a bracelet made of typewriter keys like this one   (I would love you forever)

-a beaded necklace with no hanging pieces, longer than a choker

-A pair or two of dangly earrings (no more than 1.5" long) with blue, green, purple, pink, or red beads (or some combination thereof?)

-art for my walls, ideally in earthy tones-- greens, browns, dark oranges, etc.  our bedding has sort of an India theme going on.

-handmade writing paper/stamped, stencilled, whatever. something pretty.

-something Pirates of the Caribbean themed.

-a t-shirt with an image from Don't Let The Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems on it (size women's medium)

-a needle-felting how-to kit

-supplies for a window herb garden. this would be awesome.

-little sculpey or fimo friends  thank you crystalfairy!

-stitch markers with shrinky dinks

-a Sublime Stitching kit or other simple embroidery pattern

About me: I'm 28 and live in NYC. I, like most New Yorkers, wear lots of black, but I love bags with lots of personality. My favorite colors are blue, purple, green, chocolate brown, and daffodil yellow, but I like most any color as long as it's not neon. I love things that have camp value, particularly 50's/early 60's style. I do not have nearly enough stuff with garden gnomes on it. I spend most of my free time knitting and watching the Food Network, and I'm always carrying around at least one book.

Thanks again in advance to anyone who decides to craft for me!
