Thanks to Patchchild I am able to copy the last swap rules

Sewing and knitting and crafting, oh my!

I'm limiting the sign-ups to 20 people unless something strange occurs. I will keep track of a waitlist in case people drop.

Have final lists posted by Monday, April 6 at midnight.
Send picks by Thursday, April 9 at midnight
Send Packages by Saturday, May 2


Participants shall not be involved in more than 3 swaps at any given time.

Packages must be mama/papa/granny/grampy made or craft supplies. Use your imaginations. Past swaps have had diapers, clothes, breads, sweets, jams, hand dyed yarns, fabric, toys, and many other things.

Post as many different packages as you like and do not forget to post how many packages you can send.

Please number and title your packages to help cut down on confusion for me as I figure match-ups. $15 - $20 value If you can offer more than one of the same package, please make note of that. Feel free to add a small ISO to the end of your lists. You never know if another mama would love to make you that exact thing you're looking for!

This swap is open to all 50 states and Canada and international mommas so please keep that in mind when determining how many packages you'd like to send. If you are unable to send to Canada or internationally please post that in your "I Can Make" Lists.

All participants must have some proof that a package has been sent. This can be DC, Insurance, Customs forms, PO receipt that can be scanned, etc...

If a member does not send out a swap package in the allotted time and is not actively working with the recipient to resolve the situation, the moderator of the forum is to be contacted and they will lose their TP access until the situation is resolved. If you are doing a side swap, these can often take more time until your assigned swaps are completed. Please do not take on more side swaps than you can handle in a timely manner.

Hooray! Thanks for hosting, Beans! :

Final

MMNN, aka Heather
I'm in US, can ship to US or Canada
I'd like to swap as many as possible


MMNN #1 Shoebox Worm Composter (1 available) DOUBLE VALUE

Great science project for you and the kids! Get free garden (black) gold while reducing your waste - recycling at it's finest! You will receive approx. 2 dozen red wrigglers (fat from my food) in dry peat bedding, a clear shoebox hobby home, supplemental food supply, burlap to keep them moist, and complete instructions on how to feed and keep your worms! Fun and exciting for all your science, recycling, gardening, and fishing needs. Perfect to start out on worm farming, will fit right on your kitchen counter. Make your own bedding, learn what worms like to eat, and how their nutrients can feed all your plants. Lots of fun for the whole family!


MMNN #2 Lavendar Scented Toddler Pillow Set (1 available)


These sell for $20 each in natural catalogs. Kids night themed flannel stuffed with all natural wool & lavendar, a soothing sleep experience for young and old alike. Two pillows fit across a twin bed perfectly! I'll work to match your room, or send me a pillow case you have to match your set at home! Machine washable, naturally bug & germ resistant wool, keeps you warm or cool depending on the season. one, two, three (sorry, dolly not included!)[/COLOR]

MMNN #3 Homemade Honey Soothers (1 available)


Honey is combined with vegetables in season to create natural cough and cold remedies you can give to a young child through adult! Honey has natural healing properties to soothe and comfort. Add in the natural properties of plants, and you have a winning combinations! Made from raw local honey and locally grown produce. Heated and sealed in 1/4 pint jars (so it has in effect been mildly "pastuerized").

4 1/4 pint remedies with directions for use:

Radish Honey Soother - relieves a chesty cough, can be taken at night to relieve cough and encourage a good night's sleep
Turnip Honey Soother - an effective decongestant
Cabbage Honey Soother - soothing remedy for colds, coughs, bronchitis, and sore throats
Garlic Honey Soother - excellent for coughs, colds, and sore throats, natural antiseptic properties

MMNN #4 Chocolate Cinnamon Sugar Scrub & Mud Mask Combo (1 available)

One half pint of chocolate cinnamon mud mask made with french clay (and other secret ingredients!) and a pint of chocolate cinnamon sugar scrub. Yummy! You'll smell so good you may want to eat yourself!

MMNN #5 Graphic Design & Business Card Combo (1 available) DOUBLE

For your Etsy Store or Website, a graphic banner or logo in jpg format in three sizes (high res, med res, low res) for all your business needs! To take it to double value, I will lay out a sheet of business cards for you to the Avery Template using your new logo, font, or photos! Great for the business momma!

MMNN #6 Waldorf Doll Little Green Riding Hood (1 available)

One felted 100% wool cabled hunter green sweater transformed into a little green riding hood for your dolly's fairie tale needs! Should fit a 10, 12, or 14 inch doll - previous red hood featured on "olly" a 10" doll with lots of extra room.

http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo...eat=directlink

MMNN #7 custom iron on transfers(1 available)
Four sheets of full-color photo quality iron on transfers designed to your liking. I could do photos or any kind of sayings/pics from sites cafepress...These are for light colored (white, cream, light grey, light yellow, etc) shirts and work best when put on an older well-loved shirt, something that has been washed a few times. As an example, I made one for my dad that was a picture of DS on it in his frame backpack that said "Take a Hike!" under it. I've also done ones for onesies with pictures of pumpkins and peanuts and the sort...you could fit multiples of these on one page. For an adult shirt, I would recommend full or half pages though. Complete with directions for properly adhering and setting on your shirt!

MMNN #8 Baked Potatoes! (1 available)

A set of four baked potatoes for your play kitchen. Formed out of nylons stuffed with wool, complete with "eyes" and butter pats. While the craft string is run through the wool, I would say these are better for an older child's play kitchen, maybe 4+.

Baked Potato Goodness!

MMNN #9 Rainy Day Activity (one available)
4 icing containers filled with homemade play doh in 4 colors, 4 fanciful cookie cutters, and one set of chopsticks for all your rainy day play doh needs!

MMNN #10 Awesome Alpacas! (2 available)
One large flat rate priority box filled to the gills with local alpaca wool. These are seconds, suitable for stuffing, crafting, and felting, not for spinning. Fresh from my friend's awesome alpaca farm. Variety of colors & textures.

MMNN #11 Spring Fairie Waldorf Mobile (2 available - for sarasprings )

Similar to what I have been offering, only in spring colors & flowers. In a new twist, I can make it for you, or send the parts to you for fun assembly with your child!

MMNN #12 Felted Christmas in April Special (one available)

You will receive 6 hand felted colorful christmas balls strung with buttons and ribbon for your holiday tree. I normally sell these for $6 each, but as a special in April, you'll receive 6 for the $20 swap value. These are left over from my Christmas stock. Ho Ho Ho!

MMNN #13 Herbs! (many available)

I just took over the herb business at our farmer's market, so I'm up to my gills in herbs. Looking for something? I probably have it! Want a special blend made? A recipe you want to try? A hard to find culinary herb or tea? I probably have it! $20ish worth of herbs from my stock. (don't ask for lavender or catnip, I'm out right now and probably won't be able to buy any for a few weeks )

MMNN #14 Granny's Petite Ring Sling (1 available)

These slings are for the petite momma. Broadcloth, several colors to choose from including black, purple, pink. Shorter than average length. Sturdy sailing ring construction. Sewn by my mom per my instructions because I hate tiny seams.

MMNN #15 Felting Starter Kit (1 available) DOUBLE PACKAGE

Everything you need to get started needle & wet felting! This kit will include:
- 12 small balls of wool roving in various colors
- 3 needles
- felting foam pad
- 3 sheets of wool blend felt
- specialty wool adornments (curly wool, needle roving, wool yarn)
- project starters (styrofoam balls, easter eggs, photo album, pin backs, barrette backs, etc.)
- other tools (chopstick, nylons, pipe cleaners)

Directions for two of my favorite projects: Bird's Nest Pin & Felted Album Cover plus a few photocopies of projects from my numerous felting books including balls & eggs, maybe some tiny animals, etc.

MMNN #16 Felted Eggs (2 available)
Your choice of either 5 felted egg shakers in various tones or 4 large felted opening eggs. I could also offer a combo if you wanted one or two of each.

MMNN #17 Natural Twig Colored Pencils (1 available)

This is a set of 10 natural twig colored pencils. They are about 5" long, similar to these: http://www.atoygarden.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=1452

I'll add an egg shaker to make it a $20 value. Great for the little (or big!) artist in your life!

ISO: wooden toys, play food, fingerless gloves (always!), graphic tees for hubby

Wooden Telephone!

wooden plates, cups, & utensils for a play kitchen

http://ny-image2.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.40732918.jpg

ss #3 SCRABBLE TILE NECKLACE SECONDS (multiples available -- but these are the only ones I have so you'll need to be flexible if more than one person choosees it)
These are ones that have little imperfections. Most likely someone looking at it on your neck wouldn't see them. This package is for a 18" sterling box chain and 6 seconds tiles. The only one not available is the first one in the second row.
http://s123.photobucket.com/albums/o...t=DSC02224.jpg

ss #4 KNITTING BOOKS (one available)
Vogue Knitting Caps & Hats
The Knitter's Book of Finishing Techniques

Like this, except the pearls have a little more texture (not in a splotchy surface way). I just went up stairs to measure it and forgot how long it is already. I think it was 20.5". I love wearing this necklace these days because it's simple, but a tiny bit different.

I can't resist these swaps at all. I'm in!

I can ship the following packages to Canada: 3, 6-19, 21-23, 25

Package 1 Origami Mobile I can make 1
I can do cranes, flowers, or butterflies. You pick if you prefer a traditional mobile like the one pictured or if you'd prefer a single line of cranes, starting large and getting smaller (fits great in a corner). You pick the color theme you want, rainbow, earth tones, mixed.
Photo 1
Photo 2
Photo 3

Package 2 Set of 8 nesting origami boxes I can make 2
You pick the color theme you want, rainbow, earth tones, mixed. Boxes start out from 12x12 paper and work down to 5x5 paper. Finished boxes are about 6 inches square for the largest and get smaller as they go.

Package 3 Piano Hinged Scrapbook Album I can make 1
A 6x6 piano hinged scrapbook. 14 pages. You pick the colors and the theme. Choose if you want it all embellished and ready for photos or if you'd prefer the embellishments to be packaged separately. Take a look at Club Scrap for some color combinations I have available. I have almost all of the kits on pages 1-6, plus lots more. Let me know what you're interested in and most likely I can work with that.
Piano Hinged Book

Package 4 Dream Catcher I can make 3
Handmade dream catcher. Approximately 8 inches or so across (each a little different). I'll add beads and stones that promote good dreams and peace.

Package 5 Cinnamon Spiral Oatmeal Bread I can make 1

Package 6 A Picture’s Worth 1,000 Words I can do 3
I guess that makes this package worth 6,000 words. A set of 6 5x7 prints. Your choice of animals in reverse (so funny, they’ve made great bathroom art) or garden pictures.

Package 7 Noteworthy Pictures I can do 2
Pick any of the images from package 6. I’ll make up 10 cards with envelopes for you. They can all be the same picture or a mix, your choice.

Package 8 Card Organizer I can do 2
I love making or buying cards for people, but then I always manage to misplace them before the person's birthday or anniversary. This card organizer has helped a lot! A hard cover binding with a pleated spine. Inside are 6 envelopes labeled with the months to keep cards organized, rather than lost under the couch. It'd also make a great place to stash photos or notes as a journal. I'll customize it to your choice of colors (although the inside envelopes will be manilla) and label the envelopes as you choose with months or some other organizational strategy (notes, recipes, bills, names...)
**I can also do this sized to business envelopes for coupons or receipts.

Let me know if you’d like it all packaged up fun and mailed directly to your little treasure hunter.

This has got to be my absolute favorite style of apron because it is so functional and pretty! This is actually a 1930's style cover up apron that my great grandma used to wear- and I like it just as well!

iowaorganic 4 custom tote/diaper bag/project bag- double swap (can do 1)
This is perhaps my favorite package! I will make you a custom bag fully lined with pockets for everything from diapering essentials to project supplies- you can choose how to fill it. You can choose the theme and colors and I will do the rest! I am also including a coordinating wallet/cell phone holder or drawsting bag.

iowaorganic 5 tote bag
scratched.....


iowaorganic 6 set of 2 fitted one size diapers (can do 2 sets)
I will sew you a set of 2 fitted diapers (close with a pin) in either a gender neutral, girly, or boy flannel. These diapers fold down to fit your little one (or bigger one as the case may be). I sew them with 4 layers of flannel in the wet zone and an additional semi attached doubler of 4 layers of flannel. They are pretty absorbant without very much bulk.

iowaorganic 7 set of 16" waldorf doll clothes (can do 2 sets)
I will sew you a set of clothes for the favorite baby in your little one's life. I can make a girl set or a boy set. The girl set of clothes will be a cotton dress with bloomers, a diaper, and a night gown. The boy set will include a t-shirt with bib overalls, a diaper, and a sleep sack. We can work on the colors a bit.

I'm in!!!
I'd like to swap as many packages as I am matched for
I an in the US (Oregon)
I will ship to US and Canada


Jessicado#1, wooden toy combo
: Can do as many as needed. I have added some new designs since the last swaps for those interested!
Any wooden toy, or combination of toys equaling about $20, from my store
http://www.youreinspired.etsy.com


Jessicado#2, Felted Wool Sweater Box Lot Can do 2
I have a ton of felted wool sweaters I need to get rid of! Designs like stripes, argyle and lots of solids in different colors.

Jessicado#3, Polymer Clay Can do 1
I have so much clay it is ridiculous. Literally a full plastic large tote full of new sealed clay. Let me know what colors you want and we can work something out! I even have extras like clay gloss and stuff and even some flexible mold maker.

Jessicado#4, Misc Lavender Can do 3
I have a bunch of lavender I should get rid of--want some dryer sachets, drawer fresheners or a nighttime pillow? I have a bunch of fabric and could sew what you want up!

Jessicado#5, Wool YarnLot Can do 1 only

Jessicado#6, Kids Apron and Cake Blue Can do 1 only. Size medium kids. Made from 100% cotton repurposed fabric. White with raised embroidered blue and black flowers. Large pocket on chest and 2 decorative distressed flowers, complete with vintage buttons. Modeled on my 1 1/2 yr old daughter, but would probably look better on a larger child, perhaps about 2 to 5? I dunno, aprons are so versatile size wise it is hard to say! 22" long and 20" at the waist not including ties. Comes with a light blue felt cake (cake pan not included).

http://inlinethumb18.webshots.com/18...600x600Q85.jpg



Jessicado#14, Genealogy Can do 1 only.
I have 11 years experience researching genealogy and have even traveled to other countries to research. If you are interested in learning more about your family tree, I will see what I can do! I have paid membership to many genealogy websites to search. I would prefer to do this for families that have lived in the US for awhile. If your grandparents on the side you want me to research came here from Germany, this would involve too much research for me to get started. Will upload everything online to a family tree if you want, or I can also send you a booklet or a GED file.

Jessicado#15, Tie Skirt I have been collecting ties for this skirt for years and was finally almost finished when I got pregnant. I have been waiting to drop this $&^@#(*#*@@ baby weight, but it still isn't happening, so it is time to let go instead of working to gather even more ties. I have collected enough ties to create a skirt to fit up to about a size 14/16 or smaller. Just send me your measurements and I'll finish it up. You can choose what length you want as well. Pics coming soon.

Laura, how big do you want your egg? I'm working on opening eggs right now, but I couldn't find any L'eggs eggs. The biggest I could find is the large easter eggs from the store. I'm felting over them pretty thick, and then the goal is to cut them mostly open and fill them with a needle felted baby chick. I'd say they are about 5" tall and 3" around...I can add a few if you are interested.

Merrijayne, can you give a little more detail about clothing you can make? I'm looking for fun clothes for my DS (about size 2T) for this summer. He has just enough sensory issues that fabrics need to be really soft.

MMNN--I saw you ISO a wooden telephone--are you looking for a wooden telephone (land line kind) or a wooden cell phone? If it is the latter, I just added a wooden cell phone to my store that I'm including in this swap:

I was looking for one like this, maybe that dinged when you dial...

I'm really regretting not asking for the double play wooden kitchen package last time. Since at the time we didn't have a play kitchen and had no real hopes of buying one, I didn't want to take it from someone else. Then I found a $500 Kaplan wooden play kitchen on Craig's list for $30! Needless to say, you can't pass that up. Now I need to stock it with something a little sturdier than the camping ware...

Patch I can literally do anything. I grew up in th sewing industry. My mom was a professional seamstress. My aunt did apulstry. I remember long summer drives to fabric mills. But that is be sides the point.

I design my own patterns just give me an idea or pic of style you have in mind with measurements or regular size. I can do pants/shorts, dress, shirts, bloomers, summer dresses, have done nursing gowns/dresses, patchy clothes. I have worked flannel lined pants, not so good in the summer, but may be beneficial for your son. I have worked with knits brocades, and even made purses with beaded accents, very expensive ones. It really is not my intention boast. I just really want tyou to feel as though you have designed your item, which can be quite fun. And want you all to know my capabilities. This is one of the fun parts for me creating someones visions. I have done costuming items as well
