Anyone already started making things for their baby?
I haven't made anything yet, but I did find some really cute fabric yesterday. I'm hoping to make a quilt and decorate clothes before August. I'm looking forward to seeing other projects!
I don't even want to think about it until after the holidays. ;) But I just started knitting, so I'm sure I'll do some hats. I started a simple sweater recently as well (before I knew) that I had bought supplies for before DS was born. Um yeah, that was almost 5 years ago...
I recently got a new sewing machine too, so I'd love to decorate some onesies or something with some simple animal shapes. We'll see what I have time for, my ideas are always bigger than my allotment of time. :)
I have my own online business of crochet items for babies/children. I'm looking forward to having my own model next fall! My poor baby will wear both boy and girl items for photography regardless of gender, lol. Poor thing! Hopefully I can take some time away from making for others to make for my own baby! My three kids now kind of get the short end of the stick because I'm so busy!
I got the stuff for quilts. I decided I am tired of making neutral ones so I will make a girly and a boyish one.
I need new covers for my change pad.
Then I want to make a few fun newborn summer things for the first month/six weeks until fall.
I finally got my craft room really set up this spring and have been doing so much sewing etc. I started a board on pintrest (secret) of things to do for Iggy. This is also the first time we have had a nursery (Monkey came home to a one bedroom apt and Bee came less than 3 weeks after we moved and her 'room' was still a closet) so I want to have fun with it.
Exactly what I mean by "not a finisher". I so love to get the raw materials for something but never ever complete it.
I washed my bamboo fleece to make fitted diapers out of. When I'm not so nauseas I'll start sewing them up. I'd love to get a snap press, but will most likely start with pliers in the meantime.
I've added patterns to my ravelry que to knit some longies. I've actually started on a washcloth that will be for baby.
I found a great explanation of a few types of yarn that are good for Longies/Soakers on Three Irish Girls. If we're not allowed to share links, please let me know and I'll remove it. I thought it might be helpful to first time longie knitters like me! I picked up a couple skeins in Cary's BFL since I remember a friend also saying they love BFL for longies, and can't wait to get knitting. I think I'm going to knit them into shorties for this mid-August babe.
Does anyone have any favourite patterns (any type of craft) they want to share? It'd be great to get some more ideas!
I sat down this morning and drew out quilt patterns and figured out what I want to do. Of course I bough the fabric first so I have not quite enough to do the cool zig zag quilt I liked. Oh well, it can be Monkey's big boy quilt next year.
Pinning baby crafts and sewing stuff on pintrest has apparently made everyone I know on Pintrest suspect Iggy. My boss was totally not surprised when I told her this week.
