lovingly handmade by laurasaurus in the '09 Spring Edition!

It's almost that time again -- Spring / Summer Baby Onesie Swap!!

This swap is for babies/toddlers sized newborn to 4T.  We'll be making 5 or 10 onesies / tees again.   If you choose to swap 10 onesies, you can choose to have one partner making all 10 of your onesies, or two partners making 5 shirts each.  Please also bear in mind that if we have an odd number of swappers, we may have to arrange a round robin-style partnering.  Smiley

Extras are discouraged, but my sweet swappers keep wanting to spoil their partners' babies!   Grin

The shirts can be store-bought or handmade.  Each shirt will be embellished in some way: applique, stencil, dyeing, embroidery, etc.  NO IRON-ONS will be allowed.  (Too many issues with them fading, cracking, peeling, etc.)

I'm thinking sign-ups next Sunday (Feb. 27th), with 2 weeks for sign-ups, and 5 weeks for crafting.  This would put send-outs mid-April.  We want this swap to be as stress-free as possible!

Round 5

**Any volunteers for co-organizer?
**Open to all swappers (international)??
**Do we want a theme, or just craft from partners' wishes, or. . . ?
**Also, please share links to tee blanks, patterns, appliques, inspiration!  Cheesy


Invite your Craftster friends, and let's make this an awesomely cute swap!

Don't forget!  Sign-ups start on Sunday!  Cheesy 

Be sure to invite your friends, and remember that you can swap for your own little ones, nieces, nephews, grandbabies, or even friends' wee ones!  The more, the merrier!
