I'm going to make some blankets and burp cloths for baby this time around. Double sided with super soft Minky and Fleece, Flannel, or Cotton, just going to play around with different things.

I made DH a fleece and minky blanket for Christmas that he loved and actually took with him. So I'm really excited to do this for our little one.

I don't sew (though hoping to learn soon from a friend), but I'm working on crocheting a couple of baby blankets. I'll also probably knit or crochet a number of other baby things, though I haven't decided what yet. I find it very relaxing, and I remember the blankets my grandmother made for me when I was little, so there's a lot of sentimental value.

I can't sew, knit, or crochet. I will be making a fleece no sew blanket thought. Off Pinterest. My sister actually made my kids one for Christmas. I'll be asking her to crochet me a baby blanket. (She's made all 3 kids one).

I'll make some burp cloths and applique some shirts. I've also been collecting ideas on Pinterest for decorations to make for the nursery.

I'm only going to tentatively say I'm planning to make something lol

If I make anything, it'd be:
Decor for the room
Maybe a quilt

And if it's a girl, possibly some clothes

I plan to knit a blanket but I haven't even felt up to going to the yarn store yet so I'm behind schedule. I'm still learning and every time I make a blanket I use it as an opportunity to master a new (to me) stitch, so it usually takes me 7-9 months to finish a baby blanket. Maybe I'll be faster this time.

I have lots of plans if we have a girl. Not so much for a boy. I am just more creative when it comes to girl stuff but have only had the oppurtunity to make for friends.

Im really not to crafty but I love using my knifty knitter to make baby hats. Also if its a girl Ill make her bows too. I made my daughter a ridiculous amount of bows and a tutu bow holder. So if this one is a girl Ill do the same for her as well.

I will knit a blanket. I have done this for my kids and my nieces and nephew too. I have learned to sew since my last daughter was born. I want to make some cloth diapers and probably some clothes too.

That's what I'm doing with one of the blankets I'm working on. It's a granny square blanket, and each square style I've done has been a bunch of totally new stuff, so it's taking a bit longer. I think I'll have enough free time to get it done, though.

I am taking a break from mine, though, to crochet one for a friend since she just found out she's having a girl. This one is a simple stitch, though that will go fast and come out pretty light--good for an early summer baby.
