Crafty April Mommies?

What do you do? What are you planning? With DS I knit a bunch of newborn fluff, and then he ended up being over 10 lbs at birth and nothing fit Hoping to have a smaller baby this time, but I think I will be focusing on a small size stash I also sew, and would like to round out my stash with more fitteds in each size.

I am sooo out of this thread.. I'm like the least crafty person ever! I just have ideas, but I can't ever actually DO them.. :/

Re: Crafty April Mommies?

I'm semi-crafty. I've sewn up a few diapers that have turned out decently. Not the most beautiful things in the world, but they should work! I plan to sew up some more diapers and I want to make the crib bedding and curtains. Just need to find out if I can go girly or boy!

Re: Crafty April Mommies?

I plan on making a few more diapers and crocheting some hats and a cocoon. I think that I may try and do a quilt and curtains. I did the curtains for my other two, so that I know I can do. I just haven't done a quilt before, so I'm kinda excited to try that.

Re: Crafty April Mommies?

I'm going to knit a blanket, crochet a hat or 2, and maybe a few other things once I find out what it is! I made a mobile for my son and was contemplating on making one for the next baby as well.

Re: Crafty April Mommies?

I've already been at work! Yesterday I finished recycled merino wool longies ( my first set). I've made matching spring skirts (not identical but same material and both poofy) for me & DD to fit in the spring. I have left over material too just in case it's this one is a girl!

Oh and I'm working on a scrappy fleece cover, my first cover. I'm hoping that I can do a decent enough work on the covers so that I can sell my new or like new covers.

I'm also contemplating make DD a scrapbook that I can give to her a couple days after the birth. I've never done a scrapbook and it'll probably look pretty 'scrappy' but I know she will love it.

Re: Crafty April Mommies?

I am planning on making lots of bows and flower headbands if i have a girl. I wanna do blankets for both my kiddos, but I don't sew so I will just do the tie ones.

Re: Crafty April Mommies?

I wish I was crafty - I think I am going to have to hire myself someone to make some upcycled covers/shorties/longies - I have maybe 5-10 gn felted sweaters ready for the task but no idea how to actually DO it.
