I have been making amigurumis lately and I was just wanted to get some suggestions/opinions on what the swap size on ami's would be. I like to make a little more than the requirement if I can and I have a hard time determining whether what I make is at least the requirement. Thanks.  Grin

When I make stuffed things for swaps, I go by finished size rather than cost or time -

Adult-fist-size is small
hard-cover-book-size is medium
anything bigger is large (well, actually, it would be a UFO and not part of a swap package, but that's a different issue Smiley )

Sizes approximate Smiley

(if I go by cost, they're almost always small, and if I go by time, they're almost always large (or jumbo-large). I don't usually do points so I don't know what the equivalents would be)

That is sort of like asking "what size is a sewn bag?". It depends. A tiny bag for a pair of earrings is going to be different than a large purse with lots of pockets. Amigurumi isn't any different. For example I make a little octopus with all the legs worked in one piece. It is super simple and takes me a little over an hour, maybe 2. I'd call it a small. A basic amigurumi with attached pieces (like arms and legs), I count as a medium. I'd say most amigurumis are mediums, but there are exceptions. I did one that had about 20 pieces to be made and sewn together. I'd say that was a large. It took me about a month when most amigurumi just take me an afternoon.

I would love to swap for things kids could do in the car on a long car trip (3 girls ages 5-12). I can knit, crochet or trade yarn.

I know it is hard to determine with ami's but your opinions have helped me. Thank you both for the help.  Grin
