Details of swap:

Are you ready to collect a plethora of fun, handmade, play food for your little one(s)? Here is how it will work. Everyone will be put into a group of four to five other crafters. Each group will need to decide on a “leader” through which most communication will filter. Each person in each group will declare a fruit that they wish to create in bulk. For example: April makes apples, June makes Pears, May makes Peaches, Autumn makes grapes, and Summer makes kumquats. April will then make 5 apples and send one apple to each of her partners and so on… this way everyone ends up with a fancy set of fruit.

Sign ups end April 20th
Partners/Groups will be given by April 23rd
Deadline for Leader choosing and Fruit declaration April 30th
Ship outs May 18th

Your fruit must be:
A)   Hand made of course!
B)   Machine Washable
C)   Non-toxic (these things might get gnawed upon!)

Also, please check with your partners about the fanciability of your fruit. I know I made up a word, but how else to describe it? If the strawberry you want to make is going to go into the hands of a toddler perhaps it shouldn’t have seed beads on it, but if its going to a 8 or 10 year old (or a fun loving adult for that matter) those seed beads may be just the thing to make your crafty strawberry into a true objet d’art!

which set of dates are we going with? There is one set on the top and another in the swap details. I prefer the first set  Smiley

and are we suppose to stuff them and then send or send unstuffed?

psoupdesigns you are so right! I fixed it. Both reflect the correct dates now!

As for stuffed or unstuffed, you may decide that within your group. I won't dictate that answer.

Hope to see a lot of joining in the near future! Yeah play food!

This is a great idea!  The munchkin is 15 months, just starting to get old enough to appreciate play food!  Now I can get her a whole set of stuff!  Count me in   Grin

I definitely think I would like to do this one!  My only question is...does felt food count as machine washable?  I usually just handwash the felt food I make for my kids.  I have never tried machine washing them.  Or is it better to make the toys with just 100% cotton (pre-shrunk of course!)??

the acrylic felt is washable, and i think if you hand washed the wool felt in cold water and air dryed you would be fine too.

I want in!   I have been following this swap in the swap ideas thread.   What is everyone planning on making?  I was thinking about felt oranges or felt bananas....

Thinking about joining this one... no kids myself, but we do have a niece who is probably old enough to start nomming on felt fruit.
