I have several pairs of the "wrap" pants where you take your fabric fold it in half cut out a "U: shape stitch the "u"'s together and add ties and just wrap......

well Kat came out f her room today wearing PJ's about 2 sizes too small and I said let Mom make you some new pants....... well I cut the "U" to wide and they weren't big enough to go around her..... so we added a strip of monkey fabric to her new rosebud jammie pants.  For a six year old going to the bath room in the middle of the night the whole "wrap" idea just doesn't make any sense to them so we stitched p the sides and added elastic and behold..... Kate's new pants..

Welcome to the second New Baby & Pregnant Momma Swap! Where we love our babies and our pregnant bodies (most days)  

I loved organizing baby swaps and I'm really excited about some new mommas and pregnant mommas getting some wishes granted.

anything else we should know?


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


This is meant to be a small low-stress swap, so the minimum crafting requirement for this swap is 1 large, 1 Medium and 1 Small and you and your partner will craft for each other. Please note in your questionnaire if you would like to craft more than the minimum and I will match swappers accordingly. Also, never forget to communicate with your partner on how much you would like to craft for each other. We are also going for quality here so make your baby crafts are fabulous! Remember, that is the minimum...please feel free to do more if you have time/enough creativity!

Communication is vital for an enjoyable swap! Please post in this thread at least once a week so that we can all stay in touch. Get in touch with your swap partner as soon as possible after receiving your swap info. Please keep me informed if you have a problem or have a question. Im not a mind reader so I need you to tell me if you need something.  

Remember: The more details that you put in your questionnaire the more likely you are to receive a package you love and the easier it will be for me to match you up with someone who can make you happy.  

Another little note:
Swappers will receive temporary negative feedback if:
-it is one week past send-outs and you are out of communication
-it is two weeks past send-outs and you have not yet sent, regardless of the communication with us and your partner.

Communicate often to your partner and in this thread, and I will send occasional PMs to make sure that everyone is on track. We want no flakers please!

Additionally, you *must* PM me & your partner when you send. You *must* get a DC# unless you are shipping internationally, then you must have a receipt as proof of postage -- no exceptions. And you *must* PM me & your partner when you receive. Also, you must post pictures of what you received in the gallery. If you do not have access to a camera, please let your partner know so that they can take photos before they send and can post in the gallery for you. It is recommended that you take photos anyway in case things get lost in the post!    

Most important of all................ ........... HAVE FUN AND ENJOY SOME Baby CRAFTY-LOVE!

THANK YOU TO THE ORGANIZER OF THE HIPPY SWAP 4 ( I loved your requirements so much we "borrowed them"

Details of swap:

This swap is about introducing children to books and characters outside of their comfortable norm. You will be choosing a book your children enjoy and sending it to your partner to introduce them to a book or author that should be completely new to them. Often times our children get caught up in rereading the same books or characters over and over this gives them the chance to learn about a new one. You will also be crafting a medium and two small items, or one large and one small item to go along with the book but does not necessarily have to be part of the book.  Do your children like a special cookie at reading time, then make a batch and send it with the book. Do you like curling up with a blanket, then make one and send it along. Puppets, amigurumi, cocoa mix, the ideas are endless.

For this swap, remember you want to break out of the mold and definitely out of the sterotypes.

I'll do my best to pair people by children's age range. Remember this swap is for children 7 and under

For those who need a refresher, here's the Craftster guide to what is a large, a medium and a small:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less
