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

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
Round 5

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.
**If you choose 10 shirts, you may choose to have 1 partner, and swap 10 shirts with that partner, or you may choose 2 partners, and swap 5 shirts with each partner.
**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

**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.

I'm keen to join up... Its been ages since I've done a swap!
My baby girl is four and a half weeks old.

Two questions though- I live in Australia, and we're going into colder weather, so summer onesies wont work for me. Can I swap for winter ones?
And how does the US sizing work? Here newborn is 00000 or 0000, 3 months is 000, 3-6 months is 00, etc. Can someone tell me measurements for the US sizing?

Keep smiling - It makes people wonder what you're up to.

Looking for Australian personal swaps! [For now. I'll branch overseas when I can afford it!]

Nostrum, I hope you'll join us!  I agree with babalina -- google may be the way to go!  I wouldn't know off the top of my head.  Wink  And yes, you can swap for winter ones, as long as your partner can find/make long sleeves.  But if you'd like, I'll try to partner you with someone in the same country/continent to cut down on shipping costs (and make it easier to craft for your season!)

Skittlebug, you meet all the craftster requirements for swapping, so we'd love to have you!  (Just be sure to check this particular swap's requirements in the first post to make sure you meet those, as well.)  If you have any questions, feel free to ask here or PM me.  Smiley

OOOOh, I have such a weak spot for this swap, but I have so many deadlines that fall around the same time frame I'm not sure I'm going to be able to squeeze this one in.  I'm going to keep an eye on it and see how much work\crafting\sewing I can get started before sign ups for this one close.
