What are you making for the baby?

What are you currently working on for baby? What have you already made?

I have a bunch going right now LOL Sorry for the awesome cell phone pics

I spun this stuff- One gn, one girl and one boy:



And I have a fall hat done, that needs the buttons and ends woven in:


And I have a cardigan 3-6m work in progress that I have put down for a while:



And a pair of Twist Trousers on the needles, but no pics =D

Re: What are you making for the baby?

I am going to convert my newborn GMD prefolds into fitteds (something I have meant to do for a while). I am going to make a quilt (already did one for DS, though it was just a referb of his dad's baby blanket). Maybe some new cloth wipes though I have so many already (I love to sew those things, fast and mindless work). Other than that...we don't need much. If it is a girl we will need cloths but I am not that great with sewing yet.

I have also made 1one size (Sherpa and knit) and a medium fitted (bamboo velour with bamboo fleece soaker and knit) however I ran out of elastic so they are on hold until I go to the fabric store.

I'm sewing a few wipes right now and by this afternoon I'm going to finish a fitted I started last night.

I have ton of ideas in my head but nothing working on right now.

I will be making several longies. A matching big sis and baby set of rainbow longies (since they both are my rainbow babies).

I'm also going to be making some shirts.

Need to make some more wipes since dd is using them all.

Um what else?

Re: What are you making for the baby?

I want to make a couple cocoons, 24 newborn diapers, and 3 towels. Beyond that is still up for negotiation. I have a baby boy blanket that I was working on but never finished for DS so maybe I will get it out and finish it for Nathaniel. It was almost done but I decided to purchase a house when I was 34 weeks with DS and that ate up all my time.

Right now I am in the gather supplies mode.

I want to make diapers for baby but may just go the easy route and buy them from my friends

All my friends that use cloth are pregnant right now. I fail to see how that would help! The first should be popping in about a month. The rest later. I am at the end as far as I know.

Re: What are you making for the baby?

I've made one hat, and plan on making several more. I have sooo much that I need to make. Not sure it'll all get done, but we'll see.
