Do you have a penchant for handicrafts? If so, stay a while and look around, for this might be of interest to you. Everyone's heard about art trades. We here at Craft Exchange wish to take that concept and apply it to all things crafty. Whether it be jewellery, knitting or sculpture that is closest to your heart, feel free to join in.

Should you like to participate, just add your name on the list of members and see if there are any items that are currently up for exchange. If the inventory is empty, you can always nudge people or add something yourself. You may also see if there is something in members' personal craft wikis that you like and ask whether they would be willing to make another for a trade. However, all members are encouraged to add pictures of duplicable items in the CE Gallery - check there first.

Since the crafts will obviously have to be sent via snail mail, we recommend that after expressing your interest in a certain item you move the conversation into private messages - unless, of course, you don't mind displaying your address on a public wiki.

Have fun!

Sorry the quality is so poor. :( I made this for me, originally (if can call it making, it's a pendant on a necklace) but it sits funny. :/ It's super pretty though! I want it to go to a good owner. :3

First attempt at making a necklace. There's errors, but I think it is still pretty. I love the elephant. (Negligee not included, just thought it would make a nice background ;))

I have lots more pictures, so check out Mirime's Beads to see what I'm offering :)

Pretty sure I still have these in all the above colours. They were made for a play, but they're just taking up an entire drawer in my room so I could do with losing some of them.

2011-05-19 [Alexi Ice]: I wish someone here could quilt...>> And wouldn't charge me an arm and a leg for it! Hahaha

2011-05-19 [SilverFire]: I can. O_o But it's just so... time-consuming. (well, it is for me, because I keep going 'oh hai, let's make this mahoosive thing!! Yay!')

2011-05-19 [Alexi Ice]: Lol. I want my friend's baby to have a homemade blanket but I am...>> Fail when it comes to crafts of any kind (and crochet is SO expensive!)

2011-05-19 [SilverFire]: Whut? Crochet is expensive? O_o You mean to buy something hand-crocheted? 'Cause acrylic wool (which is what you' want for a baby-blanket, since you need something that can just be stuffed in the wash and not worried about) is pretty cheap, and hooks are hardly expensive. I'm pretty sure I could buy a hook and all the yarn necessary to make a baby blanket for under £10.

Edit: sorry if the wool/yarn thing causes any confusion. Technically, if it's not made from animal fleece it's not wool, but just yarn. However, in England we just call it all wool. X_x

2011-05-19 [Alexi Ice]: I mean something hand croched is expensive (I would have no clue how to do it! Hahaha)

2011-05-19 [SilverFire]: Crochet is dead easy. :3

2011-05-19 [Linderel]: Everyone put stuff in the gallery! :3

2011-05-19 [hanhepi]: baby quilts might not be that hard to do. i had to re stitch a few for my kids. no idea how to add a ruffle to anything though.

2011-05-19 [Linderel]: I'd say painting is more of a visual art than a handicraft, Nio. It's a fine line, though... especially since handicrafts kind of are visual art, too xD But I hope you get what I mean.

2011-05-19 [Nioniel]: Sure.

2011-05-19 [Linderel]: :)

2011-05-19 [Nioniel]:  :D

2011-05-19 [Linderel]: I think I'm gonna get back to knitting in the summer... although there's actually only one thing I can currently do, and that's simple scarves. xD

2011-05-19 [Triola]: I only crochet, which like... anyone can do <.<

2011-05-19 [Thunder Cid]: Is it okay if I put one of my samples up?

2011-05-19 [hanhepi]: i can't crochet! anything that involves miles of yarn and i get tangled up in it.

2011-05-19 [nehirwen]: I'm going to try to knit a hat, I hope it's finished when winter comes. :p

2011-05-19 [Linderel]: Cid, please do!

2011-05-19 [Linderel]: Samples go in the gallery. *cough* Only things that are actually in existence and available should be put on the main page. :3

2011-05-19 [Thunder Cid]: Right...>_>

2011-05-19 [Linderel]: Is this a problem? :o
