********************************************************************

That unique little baby or toddler in your life deserves to be adorned in a Craftster-embellished onesie every day!  But since we can't possibly craft a year's-worth of onesies for our special tots, why not 5 days' worth??  

If you need some inspiration (or just want a heavy dose of cuteness), please visit our previous galleries:
Round 1
Round 2
Round 3
Round 4

SWAP DETAILS:

**You will be embellishing FIVE onesies (or t-shirts for larger tots) for your partner, according to their tastes.   The onesies/tees can be store-bought or handmade.  (We chose the amount of 5 onesies, as that is the amount you can usually purchase in one package.)
**You may choose to swap 10 shirts, and will receive 10 shirts in return.  Please note that this is really quite a bit of work, so please commit to this only if you will have the time and resources to do this.
**You can use almost anything to embellish them: stencils, embroidery, sewing, appliques, dyeing, etc.   NO IRON-ONS.
**You can join even if you don't have a tot of your own to craft for..... friends and relatives love crafty onesies, too. (If you meet all the above swap requirements.)
**The swap is limited to babies/tots sizes Newborns to 4T.
**Please -- let's keep our crafting limited to the onesies/tees ONLY.  We want this swap to be low-stress for everyone, as most of us have little ones to tend to, as well!  
**DCN's will be required.  If you are an international swapper, you MUST keep your shipping receipts.
**I check PMs and update feedbacks in the evenings, so please bear with me.  
**You will be given feedback once your partner receives, and photos of your package are posted in the gallery, preferably by your partner.

Be sure to post in this thread at least once a week to foster good communication and to let me know that you're still alive and kicking.  And crafting.
After partners are issued, please send any swap communications to barbolot with the subject Baby Onesie Swap.

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.

I sent in my survey. I am really excited (but also nervous) about this swap. This is my first swap on here. I am always afraid people will not like what I make them.

Don't worry about people not liking it, jacobsmomma. There is always swap anxiety (regardless of how many you've done) but I've never been in a swap that someone didn't like their gift. (Yes, I think of swapping like receiving gifts in the mail lol)

It'll be tons of fun!

I've done 5 swaps so far and I still feel anxious everytime I send a package. Communicate with your partner and you'll feel more confident about what you're sending them Smiley
