I want to join this swap but I'm having trouble figuring out the sizing.  Here's where I run into trouble:

Check the size of your printed piece.  If you measure along the grain line arrow you should reach the following measurements

*measure along grain line*
These measurements are for the small bear, the large is twice that.
Face:  S 11cm - 4 in
Inner arm:  S 14cm - 5 in
Body:  S 16.75cm -  6 in
Leg:  S 16.5cm 6 in


Does this mean the grain line arrow should be the size mentioned or does it mean we should lay our ruler along the grain line arrow and the entire piece should be this size?

Well, I just printed out the first page of the pattern(I'm doing the large bear and it was six pages, if that helps) and I measured the body.  When I placed my tape along the grain line it measured 13" from one end of the piece to the other, like it should.  So my guess would be the entire piece and not just the grain line.  Hope that helps!  I'm off the other three pages...

*edit*  I just printed off the second page and it's nine pages, the third page is six, and the last page is nine; but according to the instructions, we need to print the last page twice so we can make a missing part of the pattern(outer arm I think...).  Seems simple enough so far. Grin

oooohhh!
Bad me!
You pm'ed me that question and I was going to answer it, but I wanted to finish accepting join requests first and then I just sorta forgot to go back through my inbox to answer.
You measure along the grain line from the cut line (the thick black one on the outside) to the cut line. 
The only reason I chose the grain line to be the place to measure was because every peice had one.

I have all the pattern pieces printed out and they measure fine.  Now I have another question - in all the sewing I have done over the last 20+ years, I have never made a bear and I'm not sure if I can figure it out - are we going to get directions or just have to figure it out ourselves?

Oh, good... I was worried we wouldn't be able to do a small bear, and I really didn't feel like hand-sewing a 6ft bear  Tongue

If we can't do two, that's okay... I just figured that I could do two if people wanted to.

I'm having one heck of a time getting this pattern to print.  Is everyone using MS Paint?  My other issue is that our printer wants to automatically add margins even though I tell it not to.... arg...

The pattern is very easy, but I will be posting tips like a semi tute that I worked out when making the test bear.
And if you have any troubles there will be like twenty other people doing the exact same bear who I am sure can help you.  (ok, twenty is an over exaguration at this point but AIM HIGH!)

And if you don't get enough people to be in different small bear groups you can still make two bears, but you will be in the same group so you will get the fabric peices from the same people.  This just means that the person who sent you the arm of one bear will also send other bits to your other bears so they will look similar
But it is still early days, I am sure we will get more.
