kelsorama, I'll make you a panta!

This is my first wish this round.

Here's my list.

-a circular needle holder would be fantastic.

-I would love a circle skirt in Japanese-print fabric. Nice and summery. PM me for size!

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

-a beaded necklace with no hanging pieces, say 24" long or thereabouts

-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?)

-I could really really use a couple more of those plastic organizer boxes (the embroidery floss kind) for bead-holding purposes. They are starting to colonize other boxes in the craft closet. Not good.


-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)

-stitch markers with shrinky dinks

-a Sublime Stitching kit or other simple embroidery pattern

-a surprise from my wists! (in signature line)

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 in advance to anyone who decides to craft for me!

simplyfussfree, I'm already making Taloola the Kill Bill shirt for a wish a couple pages ago.  But feel free to do the "one less car" shirt.  Sorry for the confusion

Okay, Wish list

-Anything from my ever growing wists list http://www.wists.com/simplyfussfree

-http://www.etsy.com/view_item_sold_anon.php?listing_id=222408&transaction_id=66405  So so cute.

-A brown, navy, or foresty/avocado-y green, or grey messenger bag. If made with corderoy...I'd name one of my kids after you. I don't have any. One day though. Or at least a pet.

- in a different fabric. A brown. Or one with itty bitty flowers.

-This bag: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=91768.0. Colors and everything are perfect.

-Foresty themed ( owl, deer, trees, etc. ) pillow(s)/pillowcase(s) ( my bedding is green )

-Handknit socks ( maybe black with a little red heart somewhere on them or avocado green )

-My sister's a writer and I'd love something for her. Maybe something with a vintage picture of a girl writing. A slide necklace may be cool. Or a bag to carry her notebook in or something. If someone picks this, I'll PM you some stuff about her likes to help give you some ideas.

To anyone who chooses to craft for me, thanks loads in advance!

About me: I live in Los Angeles. I just came home from living with my lovely boyfriend in England and miss him very much. My name is Jana, I just turned 26 years old in late May. I like green <3 ( foresty/avacado-y ), and browns. I'm obsessed with travelling and with Romania, Russia, and Poland. I like Victorian looking things, forest themed things, Hansel and Gretal, things with trees on it, bikes, and nesting dolls. I don't like: metallics, fun fur, when people clip their nails around me, and when people clap at the end of movies.

I claim Simplyfussfree for a capelet like one she has in her wists.

This is my first claim this round.

I'm in Florida, USA.

1. A few pairs of earrings.
Earrings are my favorite type of jewelry and I only have two pairs. I won't wear long dangly earrings. I more prefer round shapes.
Inspiration: http://liebschien.zoto.com/img/original/94a1d72137037c3c53097d175a20a333.jpg - I like the shapes and colors of these. Exact replicas are not expected.

2. I LOVE this hoody: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=80615.msg846925#msg846925
I would love something like this as either a T-shirt or a hoody. What I love about it is the size of the image and the placement, the subject matter (sealife), and the artistic ability. These colors are great as is, but I would wear this or something similar in any colors. Small usually fits me best, but sometimes I get mediums.

3. Anything from my Wists list: http://www.wists.com/Liebschien
Used, second-hands, hand-me-downs and re-gifts are fine with me. This goes for anything on the whole wish list, too.

4. Printable "shrinky-dink" paper or some containers made from #6 plastic, preferably with some good-sized flat pieces to work on.

5. A sturdy rectangular container for a soap loaf mold.
Interior dimensions of 5"W x 4"- 6"H x 6"- 12"L
I will be lining it with wax paper so it doesn't matter what it's made out of as long as the sides are straight and sturdy.

6. Two cool luggage tags.
It doesn't matter what they're made of or what colors as long as they stand out and there's a spot for me to write my contact info.
Look here for inspiration: http://liebschien.zoto.com/img/original/a243e2979c56186387558b99aae0dfb1.jpg

7. Candy. It's my favorite food. The only kind I don't like is licorice flavored and I'm not too hip on peanut butter things, either.

8. Used crafting books and/or magazines. Crochet, macrame, knitting, embroidery, beading, etc. I think these types of materials would help expand my abilities.

9. Some upholstery vinyl to make a medium-sized shoulder bag. Any color is fine.

10. Decorative beady things - wooden, carved, donuts, charms, leaves...I have tons of spacer beads, but not enough interesting decorations to go with them.

11. T-shirt decorated with one of my likes - size small/6.

12. Wallet - something with a zipper pouch for change.

13. A jewelry bag or box or something to hold jewelry. I have a few bracelets now and they are just laying on a shelf. Sad

14. Something decorated with embroidery and/or beads like a t-shirt, pillow case (queen-size), or just a seperate piece I could sew onto something I already own.

15. A t-shirt with that weird monkey looking face from The Mighty Boosh logo on it - Men's size Large - for my main squeeze.
The Boosh monkey face looks like this: http://liebschien.zoto.com/img/original/cb0a9558df1f62a19f9e239da9ba3cab.jpg

Colorwise, I prefer shades, tones, and hues. I don't much care for bright primary colors or day-glow colors. My favorites are browns/rusts, blue/greens (teal, aqua, turqoise), black, greens (olive, army, moss, avocado), baby or sky blue, subtle pinks.

Here are some of my likes: insects (especially dragonflies, butterflies or beetles), nature, birds, trees, leaves, water, the orient, writing, crafting, art, candy and other sweets, fruit, beach and sealife, computers, coffee, traveling, or anything I wouldn't be embarrassed to show my mom.

Some fabrics I don't care for are felt and polyester. And I don't care for country-cutesy stuff like geese wearing bonnets, country florals, and that pastelly southwest look.

I'm 32 and I'm on summer vacation from my job as the computer lab manager at the local high school. I'm taking online college classes this summer to obtain a degree in business administration. At the moment, my life consists of my computer, crafting and listening to audio books, my dog, and not much else.

When I get the chance, I like to travel, go hiking, go camping, take bike rides, go kayaking, visit festivals, read on the beach, and just generally be outdoors and active. My style reflects these activities. I wear t-shirts and pants or cargo shorts most everyday with my flip-flops or Teva's.

I claim liebschien for a few pairs of earrings.

this is my second pick this round.

General Info:
I live in Northern California and am about to move back to Santa Barbara.  Im 23 and really girly.  Im a Social Worker finishing my last quarter for my BA in Psych.  My favorite color is pink and I like stars.  Used or re-gifted items are fine, as long as theyre clean. 
I dont have an ipod, and I dont need more purses or bags.  Im super jealous of anyone who can knit well; I cant do it as much until after my hand surgery.

Anything from my wists. http://www.wists.com/boarderchic

-Crochet supplies.  Anything pink, cute or girly.  I have a rollup needle/hook holder, but thats about it.  Yarn is always great.  Id love something homespun or hand-dyed.
-A yarn dying kit with supplies and instructions.  Ive been meaning to try it.
-A yarn spinning starter kit.  Just some basic supplies and instructions, nothing too involved.
-A homemade candle kit!  All Ive ever made are those beeswax candles you roll up, but I loved doing it and would love to do more.
-A melt and pour soap kit.  Maybe a couple simple molds, scents, dyes and of course soap.
-Homespun or hand dyed yarn.  I'm a yarnaholic.

-Lacy, knitted or detailed legwarmers.  I dont have the lacy knitting skills for something like this.  But Id love anything really delicate that I can wear with fancy heels.
-Some cozy, cutesy hand knit socks.
-A cute fair-isle knitted hat with earflaps.  Hearts, stars, snowflakes or skulls would be cool.

-I really want a bag for my yoga mat.
-I would like a re-mod Nick Swisher/Oakland As jersey/shirt for myself.  A jersey with ruffled sleeves or cute embellishments would rock.  As long as its long and covers my tummy and I could wear it to work (casual dress).  Womens XL or 2X and tunic length.
-A hoodie with kitty ears on it.  Preferably in Pink or White.  Probably in a mens large so its big and comfy.  These look super easy, and there's a great tut on ohmystars, I'm just too busy to make one.
-This hat, definitely the furry version, I like the white and brown one because of the contrasting colors.  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=87662.0

-A mixed paper journal would be cool.  I would love something with different types of paper too, not just different colors.
-Hair accessories.  Clips, hair ties, cloth type headbands...
-Stencilled or Screened Oakland A's shirt, only in pink and white instead of green and yellow.  Men's L shirt will work.  This is sorta my inspiration colorwise  http://shop.mlb.com/product/index.jsp?productId=1983949&clickid=body_rv_img
and I like that it has the circle logo and the Athletics logo, but go crazy!

ETA:  I added a couple things.  Hope I didn't stall the thread, but I'm having a hard time coming up with more wishes.
