Your mailing address:
Have you read the Swap Guidelines and understand how this swap works?
Are you willing to send at least a medium item per claim?
This is a HIGH QUALITY swap and you understand this will be your best work and it is very important to talk to your partner to make sure you have their wishes and your best crafting in mind ?

Are you willing to ship outside of your country?
If you are willing to ship outside your country? (You MUST be willing to ship air postal or an equivalent which will take a maximum of 3 weeks.DO NOT SEND SLOW MAIL overseas) Are you willing?
Are  you willing to Bookmark all threads, PM organizer when you send and receive with the claim and date due out in it?

How This Swap Works:
Please READ CAREFULLY! This swap works differently than most!
There will be a first post that has a craftster (person A) and their wish list of 15 handmade items for babies/kids as well as a list of supplies. A second craftster (person B) will look over that list, choose something to make for person A and then post their own wish list. Person C comes along and choose from Bs wish list, and in turn posts their own and so on. (If Person C wanted to make Person B two smaller items, that would still count as ONE WISH.)  
When you claim someone it is important to post your claim status up to that point. So if this is your first claim you would put 1/0/0 meaning you had made one claim, not shipped any yet, and none had been received yet.

About Your Wishlist:

You will want to come up with a wish list of 15 handmade items for baby as well as any supplies you may be needing to make baby/kiddo projects yourself. (Please have your list ready before making a claim, this type of swap can move very quickly! If not I will skip you and or remove your claim!!  Please include your country at the start of your wish list). Person B will also PM Person A to get her address so they can mail the item when it is finished.  

When you want to make a claim, you can ONLY pick from the very last wish list in the chain.  You can't pick anyone else in the chain - you can only connect to the very end of the chain, which is that last wish list posted.

After you have made your claim, you need to PM that person for their address within 24 hours!! It is up to you to make sure you do this DO NOT PM THE ORGANIZER FOR THIS INFO! You must get and keep safe until you ship!

You may have 2 claims at any given time.  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one claim at a time until your crafts are received for this month. Do not choose over your given limit. If there is a stall in the thread the organizers can claim again to get this moving again!

***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***

~~You must send your package using delivery confirmation with in the USA. NO exceptions within the USA!
~~If sending overseas as it takes so long we are changing the rule for INTERNATIONAL packages ONLY as soon as you ship AND SEND A PHOTO COPY /PIC of the shipping receipt ( or the tracking number from the receipt) you can claim again ONLY AFTER I HAVE THIS RECEIPT HOWEVER!!!
YOU HAVE TWO WEEKS (14 days from the time you claim)TO GET YOUR ITEM OUT THE DOOR.

Last claim from last round. =)


Our little Emma was born on June 10 so she's only 3 months old. She was 5 weeks early and still a little smaller than 3M. Since we live in a small apartment (in Germany!!!! for all those who'd like to claim me) she doesn't have her own room yet but shares some space in my home office (I'm a teacher).
I pretty much like all colours that you find in nature. Patternwise I like stars, polka dots and stripes and children prints, not too cute and girly though. The decoration of her little space is rather Waldorf inspired.

All the links are for inspiration! Also check out my pinterest (for the little ones board)

You cannot give me too much work; to accumulate work has almost become a passion with me: my study is so full of it now, that there is hardly an inch of room for any more. I shall have to throw out a wing soon. (J.K.Jerome)

I claim Ewulotta for some wall art a little something from her extras (with the option to add something else if I find out I cannot copy other people's paintings...) (1/0/0)

Hi, my name is Anne. I live in Germany with my husband and two sweet little daughters: Lea has just turned two, and Hanna was born on September 5. I have two nephews (nearly 3 and 3 1/2) and will be getting a little niece before Christmas. The kids play with each other and stuff gets handed down, so we have lots of boyish things in blues, greens, browns.

My favourite colours are cream (sand, milk, stone, wool... think nature), pink, dark teal, dark brown, deep purple, and black. I use those colours for the kids as well, plus lots of bright light green. I like plain fabrics, or patterns like leaves, blooms, polka dots, circles, stripes. We have decorated our apartment mostly in light colours (white, cream, wood) so colourful stuff is always welcome. What I don't really like is the typical (at least here) kids' combination of red-blue-green-yellow. Repurposed and/or used is fine. I usually prefer cotton or other natural fibers over acrylics.

I've set up a board on Pinterest for this swap, links to all handmade items (or at least pictures) from my list should be here: http://pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/craftster-ongoing-babykiddo-swap/.

O diaper & wipe case for DH http://feedthedogsnow.blogspot.com/2010/04/diapers-wipes-case-tutorial.html
O fabric bucket like this or any other (with or without handles, no lining required) http://radcrafter.com/2011/11/fabric-organizer-bin-aka-diaper-caddy-sewing-tutorial-and-free-pattern-download/#comment-608
O simple small strip quilt (no name) http://www.favequilts.com/Quilts-For-Baby/Easy-Personalized-Strip-Quilt-for-Baby/
O simple tote bag, will be used as diaper bag and then as a regular tote later - preferably like this http://thelongthread.com/?p=10690 or this http://www.allfreesewing.com/Bags-and-Purses/Pleat-Top-Tote-Bag  or maybe like this one http://www.etsy.com/listing/62315733/sale-blythe-deep-purple-canvas-lines?ref=shop_home_active
O small fitted sheets (17x32) - solids ideal to go with our brown pram (with flowery pattern), patterns great for crib or bassinet
O snap on water bottle holder (one for me now, one for baby bottle for when...) http://ourhomegrownspud.blogspot.com/2012/10/diy-jogger-drink-holder.html

O Labyrinth onesie - the babe with the power (I really love the design from thinkgeek) http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/e846/?srp=6
O simple "oversized cross-stitch" sweater or shirt (works for both kids) like this http://www.uberchicforcheap.com/2012/10/diy-cross-stitch-heart-sweater.html - colours can be completely different, and we'd love a star or a ladybug, as well
O simple-ish blank recipe cards in A5 (ca. 10x15cm / 4x6in) and dividers for baby and toddler food - I only have a box and a very tattered old book with lots of grubby single scraps... or maybe even colourful like this design:  http://heartmadeblog.com/free-download-bunting-flags-recipe-cards/ - or these are so cute http://www.mygrafico.com/freebies/free-summer-recipe-card-printables/prod_8703.html! (I'm counting those as a crafted project, because it does take time to properly print & cut those, ink is expensive, and so far I haven't managed it myself, like knitting, for example)
