Is anybody else getting crafty for their baby? I've been making some newborn pocket diapers and thought I'd share...very excited to use these on her when she comes!

My homemade project is going to be building a cosleeper.  smile.gif  Everything else I pretty much have leftover from DD- I made a lot more stuff when I was pregnant with her.

I can't get enough baby knitting currently. We really don't need much but the urge to make soakers anyway is huge.

 

Changingseasons, looking forward to seeing the co-sleeper!

Ooh, I love them! This makes me wish that I had kept up on knitting! My mom taught me when I was little, but I've since pretty much forgotten everything about it. I'd love to get back into it. The knitted sleep sacks are so cute -- I'd love to have one for a photo-op with my baby. :)

All of yours are super cute! 

 

I don't really knit or sew but I love handmade things for babies.  my mom started to knit this wkend and I think she's making a sweater set for a preemie baby(under 7lbs). I already have a few sweater sets for newborn(white, yellow, light green and pink) and then in girly colors in bigger sizes. I also have some friends that decided to do something for me and that will be sewn. They are just waiting to see if the baby is a boy or a girl.

Those are awesome!  I'd be excited to use them too!!  I did some tiedye onesies for my son, that's about the most creative thing.  :)

adorable stuff ladies!!  I hope to make a blanket for this lo- but waiting for my addition to be done so that I can work on it in my dedicated sewing room :)  So it might just have to happen after he has arrived.

I love all the pics!  I'll try to pull out my camera and see if I can add some pics of my projects.  Just today, I finished sewing up the last of a flannel sheet set, which didn't fit any of our current beds, into diaper doublers.  Dh brought home some more elastic so I could finish up the last three fitted diaps I have sitting on my sewing table.  I need to make a second mei tai wrap, which I'll probably work on tomorrow with some old fabric I have.  I really need to get going on a second christening gown.  I'm fine if it is boy/girl, but if they are two girls, I only have one gown.  But, otherwise, I'm feeling much more prepared for the twins.  Newborn size diaps and wraps are covered.  Dh needs to bring up my tote with medium and larger size diaps, so I can evaluate what's still usable.  5 kids through your cloth stash, especially with most of it used to begin with, can really wear it out!

Adorable projects!  Those diapers are so dang cute!

 

I have been knitting, knitting, knitting but mostly soakers, longies, and hats.  I am about 75% done on a cute cardigan sweater.  I'll try to get some pics up tomorrow.

I knit and crochet.  This baby hooded blanket was done via crochet - pattern can be found here for those that like it and wanna try it.  (I like to use a size bigger on the crochet hook and double thread) - http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/cpl-bafg.html?r=1

 

BTW, I encourage anyone who does knit and crochet to SIGN UP on lionbrand.com because it's FREE to sign up and I got an infraction for copying/pasting copyright lah-de-dah.  Not happy this late at night to edit my post about it, and sorry for those that had it, and then had it removed.

 

(grumble)

 

Enjoy!

This is a great post!  I need to get crafty for my little one but just haven't started yet.  I know I need to make diapers and receiving blankets for sure. You have all inspired me!

I am literally DROOLING over that blanket of many colors.....wow. Methinks you should sell me one! smile.gif

And the dipes look utterly professional and adorable.

And the hooded blanket is yummy!!!

Great job, mamas!

So amazing. I haven't crafted at all for this baby, but have many handmade things ready from my first (as well as MIL-knits). I would like to make at least one new thing just for this little one. Kyrie, I LOVE that rainbow blanket too - gorgeous!

Oh, I wish I could make diapers!  Those are adorable!  

 

Beanymama, I love all your projects!  I'm going to queue the capelet, blanket and knitted wrap on Ravelry so I can make them too!

 

I made a baby blanket, booties, longies, and two sweaters for the baby.

And I sewed a basic fleece pouch.

 

I'm still planning on knitting/crocheting soakers and longies...and reupholstering my glider.  I'll do more if I have the time.
