Baby Crafts

So I was just wondering if anyone else was making some sweet treasures for baby? If so what have you made?

  • Not yet but I just Pinned a cute Jon-Jon pattern on Pinterest. Oh, and I'm finishing up a hoodie cardigan that was supposed to be for DD but I didn't finish before she outgrew it. :-\" It's butter colored and I'll just use some boy-ish buttons.

  • I may make my baby's coming home outfit.  Maybe a couple others.  I am a very good seamstress and i do smocking my hand and also embroidery by hand.  I have made a lot of things for all the other children so its not like this one needs a lot...but i enjoy doing it.  Maybe after another month when I really start winding down the children's schooling and have more open time

  • I'm going to do some cute nursery things. I bought three frames that I'm going to paint and do orange backgrounds with probably fabric. Then I'm going to get letters and cover those with gray print scrapbook paper. And then glue them to the frames. Hard to describe but I saw it on Pinterest lol

    My hubby is going to do some cute pallet book holders for my DD's room. And I want to make her a bigger bow holder. I made one already but it's full of hair bows. Lol I might just do another one that's the same size.

  • @supersarah77 Oh, yes I am a crafty crazy. Lol! I am also a Pinterest junkie!! So far I have made a crocheted hat, some wash cloths, bibs, and I am working on a blanket. Just need to pick a name to embroider on it. Are you sewing the cardigan? Did you find it on Pinterest?

    @cneidng I love smocking and would love to learn how to do that!!

    @niknak1208 The frames sound cute and I have seen pallet book holders! The book holders I have seen are really neat, would love to make hubby do that for the kids. Lol!

  • I'm so jealous of all of you ladies! I wish I knew how to knit or sew. :(  I can hem a pair of pants or sew on a button but that's about the extent of my ability. Give me a glue gun and I'm good.. but sewing not so much. lol  

     I just now noticed that my profile picture is half of DD's head. lol She must have managed that herself when she was playing my phone.

  • @supersarah77 that hoodie is so cute!! If I knew how to knit I would be printing that off! Lol! Might have to look for a crocheted version :)

    @niknak1208 if you can hem a pair of pants you can sew!! I am a self taught seamstress. If I can do it, I'm sure you can too! :)

  • Look at all you crafty ladies!!!

    I have a sewing machine, but probably won't be doing much sewing for Chloe, at least not until Halloween time.  (My mom always made our costumes, and I plan to do the same for my daughter even if it kills me, lol.)  My grandmother already sent me a crocheted blanket, hat, sweater and booties.  I suspect other family members are also crocheting and/or crafting.  Plus, members of my mom's church are also doing some things.  (They are all retired and are excited for my mom.)

    I have some nursery ideas from pinterest (of course).  One is to decorate wooden letters of her name to hang up.  I plan on doing that ... sometime.  Maybe during spring break when I won't be so busy teaching.  

    Would love to see some pics of your finished projects!!!

  • I can hem by hand. Lol. I don't have a machine. Luckily DH's mom is a prof seamstress. She usually fixes all of our stuff. My mom knows how but usually doesn't have time. She called me today about a little dress she started for me when I was little. She's now determined to finish it for my Livy who is 2. :). My aunt quilts and knits so we get stuff from her too. I would love to be more crafty. I have fantasies about being a stay at home mom and having an Etsy shop. Lol

  • @jerseygirl227 Here is a picture of the crocheted hat I made for my little girl. :)

    @niknak1208 I have a Etsy store. I love Etsy! You can make money on there. Me not so much right now. It is like a job, you have to work it to make money. I am to busy right now being pregnant and chasing my 2 year old. Lol!

    Anyone else have pictures to share?? I would love to see what everyone is making or has made too!!
