I've seen the road fabric on eBay plenty of times, I was watching it for ages (several listings), to make a car mat for my little guy, but then his grandma bought him a car mat (it folds up into a box for storage too), so I stopped keeping track of it.

Ooh I love everyone's package so far. Blu's package is awesome. I love that car shirt. Such a great job. And the bowling set, I love the whole package. And the girls' package is awesome too. I love those aprons, rompers and scarves. So girly. And that last picture is priceless! I can't wait to get my package now. The anticipation is killing me.

Can make dresses for your princess!

These packages are incredible! Smiley  Everyone has done a great job!

Pumpkin bear:  How awful the girls' toys were stolen.  I'm so upset that someone would do that.  Thank goodness the package came at a good time.

Mommythemaid:  If you don't mind me asking - where did you get that romper pattern from?  I love those rompers! Smiley  Adorable!

klum78:  bowling ball pins!  I LOVE that!  Where did that pattern come from - I know a little girl who would love some of those! Smiley

Igobylorib: I hope your package is delivered today - I can't wait to see what you little one thinks of it all! Smiley

I am so glad Blu liked everything!  Sorry about the foam bath toys.  We never actually had any of these so I had no idea that kids love to eat them. 
 I have seen the playmat fabric on etsy but mine came from a local thrift store.  They had an unused yd for a few bucks.  I was going to attempt to hand paint one but this was too great a deal to pass up. 

The bowling pins are my own pattern.  I started off using the weeBunny pattern from weewonderfuls but the shape wasn't bowling pin-y enough.  I kept drawing patterns until I got one that looked like a pin.  I think I have 4 discarded odd shaped pins around here.  I weighed the bottom with a rice but they are still a bit of a pain to get to stand up.  I think next time I would make them with a bigger base.   I can look and see if I still have my pattern and scan it for anyone who wants it. 

We are in the process of switching over to cloth diapers.  Would love some advice, hint, tips.   Will swap for diapers!

I bought a set of digital patterns off of eBay a really long time ago.  I somehow erased the pattern for the romper but still had the leg template and yardage requirements so I winged it.  It's basically a rectangle that you cut a curve shape (which is the template) and then stitch that up for the legs.  THen you make two slits for the arm holes and hem them.  THen you make casings on front and back for the ribbon and hem the legs.

Did that make any sense?

I really like that Spidey folder.  My Athena would love one that was more girly.

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Grin  (note: you can skip the orange part, it's just me rambling)
we got our package today and it is amazing!  i just typed 5 different sentences and then erased them because none of them showed the excitement and appreciation i'm feeling.  of course my dumb new camera came with a tiny memory card so i took about 6 pictures and ran out of space.  so i had to come here to my parents' house (only 2 blocks away) to unload the camera because my computer got destroyed when the basement flooded.  and since i was on the computer here, i just couldn't resist posting what i have so far.  jackson is thrilled beyond words...he woke up crying from his nap, but did a quick 180 when he saw his "whole box of peasants"  (not really though, that would just be cruel...it was actually a box of presents)  i wish i had had a videocamera on hand because the squeals of delight that came from that child are the cutest noises i've ever heard....so here are shots of jackson and julian with their most wonderful package from my favorite (albeit only) swap partner ever, kaymadben. Wink

not only that, but she sent an absolutely gorgeous princess curtain for my niece...who just happens to have one window in her room that just happens to be a perfect size for this!  i can't wait to give it to her!  pictures to come...

oh yes, and one more small teaser just because...and i am extremely nervous now about my package.  i hope you like it!
