Are there any crafty mamas/mamas-to-be here? I am constantly making SOMETHING, and have been making things for this bubba since we first started TTC at the beginning of the year. I crochet, make metal stamped jewelry, and try my hand at just about any other craft I can. Here is just a few of the things I've make for this baby so far. I'm sure there will be plenty more by June =)







I'm currently working on Christmas gifts. I'm hoping to get as many done as possible within the next month, but I'm usually a pretty big procrastinator so who knows?

Here is an example of the stamped jewelry I make.



Anyway, all this rambling is to get to the point of asking if there are any other crafty mamas, and if so what is your craft? I'd love to see your projects!

Cute! I love crafting but don't do it much anymore. One day I'd love to have a crafting room and I want to learn how to use a sewing machine.

I wish I could sew better! I have a machine and know the basics, but anything outside of a straight line is a task, lol

Bumping to see if we have any other crafty mamas

Sewing is my thing, although I do know how to knit, stencil, and make hairbows. I haven't made anything for this baby yet. I know I will make the christening gown, once we know what we're having.

I made this for Abri's first birthday (no sew tutu, and then I made the owl applique and sewed it on her shirt)


I did these hairbow holders as Christmas presents for my nieces one year


Oh and I'm a nerd who likes to make Renaissance dresses for my girls

I can crochet and made a lot of stuffed friends for Drake before he was born. I have some ideas I want to try out for room decor and photo props once we move.

I'm kinda crafty. Or at least Pinterest makes me think I am! lol

I made a ring sling for DS that he hated when I tried to use it. I made a Halloween costume (Max's wolf suit from Where the Wild Things Are) for him, too. That one turned out pretty good. I made a Hobbes stuffed tiger (from Calvin and Hobbes) and that actually turned out great.

I've made candies, jewelry, solid perfumes, laundry detergent, lotion bars, cloth diapers, training pants, candles, Christmas decorations, etc. etc.

Typical Pinterest addict stuff.

By the way, that renaissance dress is ADORABLE!!!

That dress is gorgeous!

And yeah, I'm kind of addicted to Pinterest, lol. It is where I get a lot of my ideas anymore.

I crochet. I'm not great at it as I don't do it all the time, but I've gotten pretty good over the years. My grandmother taught me when I was very young. I wish I could do other crafty things, but crocheting is the only thing I've really stuck with.

Cute stuff! I used to be crafty, but my three boys keep me so busy. I really wish I could do more.

I'm not very crafty at all! I so want to be though. Pinterest makes me feel like I can be crafty. About to make DS a magnetic board for his room that I found on there. We will see how it turns out!

I am VERY crafty. I sew, knit, tat and do a bunch of other crafty things. I'm really looking forward to starting to knit things for the baby. Right now I'm just waiting until I get into the second trimester before I start going gungho on baby things. I already plan on making 90% of the things for the baby, including my diaper bag.

I sew...mostly for myself, but every so often for the kids. I can do basic knitting, crochet, and needlework. I also make all of our soaps and lotions.
