Just signed up!
I'm crafting for a friend who just had her first baby (2/19/10). I've been making her baby clothes, but want to get her some other things that I can't/don't make. And this is a completely unbiased opinion, but he is the cutest little thing I've seen since, well, since mine were babies.  Grin
AND this is my first swap and I'm super excited. Is there a formula for figuring out what is large/medium/small? Or would someone just spell it out stupid style for me, please? In my realm of crafting, preferably, which is sewing (mostly kids' clothes). Thanks!

Arg!  I am still trying to decide if I will be able to pull this off or not... I REALLY want to!  I think if I can get the last 3 baby dresses I want to make for my babygirltobe cut out by the sign-up deadline I am going to go for it!  I have a few things to stitch up tomorrow morning (baby gifts for friends who are having babies within 2 weeks of me) and then I am hoping to get a chance to start tracing those patterns and getting them cut out.
So *fingers crossed* I can play with you guys!

I will be limited to what I have in my stash though... (luckily I've got quite a bit for babies/kids  Grin)

Anybody make cloth diapering stuff?  I would really like to give it a go with this baby but I don't have anything yet (I know, cutting it a little close, haha)...

Is there a formula for figuring out what is large/medium/small?

This is from the swap FAQ:

07. What is the typical size of swap packages?

There has been a bit of confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item.  So here's a handy dandy guide.  This is a guideline ONLY: a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

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

Remember, the important thing is that you and your partner agree.  If you want to make each other a purse for a shawl, go ahead.  Just make sure you're being fair, you communicate with your partner and you meet the guidelines outlined in the Swap Guide as well as additional guidelines setup by the Organizer of the particular swap. Think to yourself with each item you include: would this seem like a large item to me if I received it, or is it more on the medium or small side? Obviously, each project is different.  These are just suggestions. Send something that you are proud of and that you would be happy to receive.

Booo.... I am going to have to sit this one out.  I have been having BH contractions on and off for the past few weeks (3 hours and counting tonight) and I am measuring a week (possibly closer to 2 now) bigger, so I am worried I might not make it to even our scheduled c-section date... I just have this feeling... and I hope it's wrong but I would hate to not be able to make the best package I can for my partner.

Hopefully this round will go so well you all will want to do another one over the summer... Grin
