Awww... so cute! Me, I'm doing NOTHING and it's kinda driving me crazy. Oh well, that's just life right now. I'll find time once DH and DD1 are into their school schedules and they both just started today. I got about 3/4 of the way done with knitting a baby blanket, but then stopped. I want to at least have some hats and a sleepsack knit before the baby comes.
I started knitting a baby sweater before I knew I was pregnant (I had been avoiding making anything before that because I was getting really bitter about TTC), then in the middle of the sweater I found out I was pregnant. Maybe it was good luck. It's finished now, but I haven't taken a picture of it yet.
I also just bought some fabric to make myself a belly band (similar to the Bella band) since I'm getting close to not being able to button anything, but I'm still too small for maternity pants.
Years ago I made a couple of stretchy wrap carriers.
I don't have anything on the needles right now for baby though.
Reusable Sandwich and Snack bags are on the sewing table at the minute!!
cocoabean8 - are you using a pattern or did you make up your own? I have been wanting to make some sandwich bags, but not sure what style...
I just bought some super fun new sewing books and now I'm gathering a bunch of fabric to dye for clothes, toys and blankies.
But first, I am supposed to be working on my sister's gift, she's getting a handspun and knit cocoon and a cashmere bootie/hat set for her baby that is due in about 4 weeks.
Kyamo- what kind of fabric are you using for the Belly Band? I was about to go buy one... but not if I don't have too!
I'm knitting my second of a couple of baby hats for some twin nephews that will be born sometime in the next couple of weeks. I just finished up a sling for a friend, and I'm going to start some socks for my dd. Then I'm going to knit some socks for a friend, and make some more baby hats. I just got this book: http://www.amazon.com/Baby-Beanies-Happy-Little-Heads/dp/0823099032/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1314326397&sr=8-1 and so far I'm in love!
I'm working on a yo-yo quilt using old fabric scraps. It's a lot of fun because I can take it anywhere with me and sit and work while I watch DD. It's a nice, relaxing craft.
I am 13 weeks tomorrow and still feeling too sick to do any crafting whatsoever! Even knitting makes my nausea worse!
May I submit a 2nd vote for a cyclops hat? :-D
How cute! I don't think the pattern link posted. Maybe try separating it out with spaces.
I think i-cording is WAY easier than trying to make a tassel that won't fall apart. I can never get those tight enough. I-cording is simple as can be if you have a double-pointed needle. Just knit 3 sts, slide to the other end and k 3 sts again, continue until it's long enough and BO. Each time you slide it, you are joining the ends of the work, so it ends up tube shaped. I just knot it to get a curled look, or if you want actual curls, I think that's best done by crocheting. :)
OK, time to finish that blanket... I think you have inspired me that it's not the only thing I want done before he/she gets here! :) I'll just have to make weekends my baby crafting time since weekdays are allotted to waldorf doll making.
