Can we do a babycrafts show-off thread?

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
I know there are lots of babycrafts going on, from scrapbooking to knitting to sewing to photography! Please share!

In addition to my ongoing quest to sell one of a kind pouches and hats, I made my first MT tonight and am dying to show it off, and I want to see what everyone else is making, too!

My 1st MT: http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c1...s/1stmt2sm.jpg
My website for pouches for sale: www.pollywogpouch.com

So, whatch'all doin?

Very cool. The MT is great! I am making my first MT tomorrow. I went and bought strap material today. I haven't done ANY scrapbooking since Louis was born.: I'm in the process of setting up my NEW, awesome crafting area though, so watch out!

Very nice

I just ordered Kienan's scrapbook and am looking forward to working on it once I get DD's up to date. I cleaned up my area last week, Kienan has begun napping alone and I am ready to ressume

Magpie those look awesome! I want one of your pouches!!

As far as crafty things I have done nothing since Nate's birth. I am just starting a mini-album of our Paris trip last month, so I'll be more behind than ever with the boys' books.
I can only show off pages from Ryan's scrapbook, since I've only got a half dozen of AJ done, and Nate will be lucky to still be living at home by the time I get to his!

And as for sewing, knitting and the like...never in a million years. I am apparently severely handicapped in this department. I can't even sew on a button! Maybe when I become a grandmother some day I'll have to go take a sewing class . Unfortunately I skipped 8th grade when they offered home-ec.

Right now...I cook. I can show off cupcakes, quiches & sushi...all vegan though.

For all my complaining, I think this thread is a great idea!!! I can't wait to see what everyone else can do!

Wow Magpie!! I've not done anything so ambitious. I made my friend's dd a doll for Christmas, but I forgot to take a pic of it. It was a basic baby in a bunting shape. I made it out of fleece and fiberfill left over from other projects. I think I'm going to make a wool one for Ian to snuggle and chew on. I've got leftover chunks of a sweater I felted last year for a purse I made. If I get it done I'll post a pic.

I am soooo jealous of you crafty mamas! I don't have the space or the gear to do stuff like that. Some day, I hope!

Okay! The Mai Tei is done! Now I just have to get pictures of it. Dh liked it so much that I am making him a "Man Tei" out of Denver Broncos fabric!

Wow magpie! I'm so impressed! No babycrafting here...I'm lucky to get a journal entry in every few days (which don't make for good photos ), but I'll look forward to seeing other mama's efforts here!

Doing lots of knitting over here, mostly longies and hats but I just started my first sweater the other day. We'll see how that turns out!!

those are great, Magpie, and I love your site!

I'm actually working on opening a store (bricks and mortar and online, too) that sells baby carriers...maybe I could sell some of yours?

Too darn cute. My goal is to learn to knit this year - New Year's Resolution!

Art as Food

As I said, the only creative stuff I've done lately is cooking, like sushi for a playgroup potluck, and A.J.'s 3rd birthday cake.

I HAVE THAT SAME FISH TRAY! Have I told you you're my soul sister? Man that food looks yummy!

The "Man Tei" is done. Unfortunately, Louis was sound asleep when I finished it, so I haven't seen him in it yet. I want to wake him up, but I won't!

Krista,

That sushi looks great! What do you put in yours? I usually do cucumber, but I've done carrot and green onion (not together, lol). I'd love more ideas.

Jesamin, Your knitting is soo adorable!!!
