Re: Making stuffs for the wee ones

Totally drooling! I have neither the skills nor time to come up with that sort of craftmenship.

LOVE the skirties. No need for them this time around though

I've got the yarn and plans to make at least 4-5 more skirties in nb, small, and sm/m sizes but I'm waiting on a new set of interchangeable needles.

Re: Making stuffs for the wee ones

I've made a couple of wetbags and some flannel wipes. I haven't taken any pics yet but I will. I also make natural diaper cream/baby balm and that kind of stuff if that counts.

Re: Making stuffs for the wee ones

Here is what I have made so far. I can not knit, crochet, or do any serious sewing so I am drooling over what many of you mamas have made. I do what I can and love every minute of it. I have to admit that cding is going to be hard with this one I am afraid, but I have a stash of gDiapers that I plan on using and have made inserts for them and plan on embellishing them. I have materials to make more bib/burp cloth sets and stuff for making loveys for this little one like I have for DS... he carries his everywhere and can not sleep with out one. I love ya'lls stuff, it is amazing.

Painting over crib


bubble minky blanket


big brother shirt for DS


bib/ burp cloth sets (just embellished, did not sew the whole thing)

I MUST get this pattern too. Living away from my sewing machines has made me fall all back in love with knitting and theres SO much I want to make. My 7yo ds wants me to make him an Irish Fisherman's sweater, so I get to pull out all my notes from my Irish grandmother about all the "traditional" patterns (that aren't really...but thats another story) and have him "draw his story" and do that for him for next winter. Until then, I get to knit squishy baby stuffs!

Re: Making stuffs for the wee ones

yeah, you def. all make me jealous. I SO wish I could sew some adorable newborn diapers or knit some wool goodies. But nope. Instead I'm stuck spending a mini fortune on it. Or, not as the case is because it gets too pricy for everything I want!
