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


**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 anything to embellish them: stencils, embroidery, sewing, appliques, iron-ons, etc.  
**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.

what a graet thing to wake up to!
i'm off to send a facebook message to see if my nephew wants 5 new shirts!
« Reply #3 on: March 05, 2010 10:36:02 AM »

I sent my info. I really debated doing 10, but I don't want to be overwhelmed. This will be my first swap actually crafting something, as my others have only been Fill-A-Box swaps.

I would be lying to myself if I said I that I don't want to do this!!!! I think that all the shirts from the galleries are just adorable and whimsical! Thing is, I don't have kids so I would be using my niece, Kaiya, as the lucky beneficiary.
I just loves kids so much and love making children inspired things.
After I find out all the info on Kaiya (weight, etc.) I will sign up!

This is so tempting...but I'm seven months pregnant right now and might have to sit this one out.  Not only that, but I got five great onesies for the baby in the last round.

It is a bit tempting to do this for one of my boys, though...grrr..I hate it when swaps come up at a bad time for me!!!

Baby number four is here and he's a boy!!  Time to start using all the great stuff I got from a bunch of Craftster friends:
