Well, looks like I'm joining the party.  This is going to be a good swap.  I guess there are some general things that we could start with, even before we get partners, right?

Ok, I'm in.  Woohoo!  I've never been a postcard person before, so this is going to be really fun.

Because they are flexible, you can weave them into bags.  You didn't say whether they are nylon or steel, but you can do the same with either one.

You can actually weave burlap.  Start by cutting the size that you want, then stitch around the outside edge so it doesn't fall apart.  Then carefully pull out some of the crosswize threads.  Then, using a small crochet needle, weave in yarn in any color and make a design in the burlap.  Tie it off on the back, and I usually add a little bit of superglue to the knot so it won't come undone.  Then you can frame it and you have a beautiful woven picture.

Does spinal stenosis count?  This could turn into a learning experience.

Has this swap been started yet?

Sure looks to me like an elephant.  Cute as a button!

I'm having trouble coming up with a gift for my friend's son. He will turn 1 year old in December, just before Christmas. I don't have kids and know little about what is age appropriate... Any thoughts on what I could make him? Is it better to make a gift for him to play with, or maybe something decorative? I want to be safe, of course!

Thanks Smiley

at that age, children don't really expect anything. because of that (as far as the child is concerned) you can give anything you want. this frees you up to look at the "whole picture": does the baby need winter clothes? if that's not the case, soft toys are great, just make sure there are no buttons that can be swallowed.


Also, you might want to look into learning toys that are baby safe.  That also means no small parts to come undone, no long strings or laces, etc.  I agree that at that age, toys are not really important.  They usually end up playing with the pots and pans anyway.

I sent my package yesterday. Yay!
Ok, I've started collecting my supplies for this swap.  I have a few ideas for things to make.  All I need now is a swap partner. Wink
