Not crafts done WITH babies, crafts done FOR babies! LOL

Any other crafty mommies here? Anyone have some good patterns for sewing baby clothes or bedding or toys, or other DIY projects for nurseries and wee ones? I've found some cute ones if anyone is interested!

I haven't tried to sew for years, but I do crochet and have made a hat and blanket for this baby already. I have a list of other things I want to make, as soon as I get some motivation back

I will probably make the bedding for this baby. I have always done curtains, pillow for my rocker, dust ruffle, mobile, and letters for the girls. I'm just having a hard time finding bedding I like this time. Once baby is born, I'll sew the christening gown. Lily wore the one my MIL made for DH as a baby. Abri wore one I made for her. I want to make another one so that each child will be able to pass down the one they wore.

I am working on learning how to crochet. I am not good at it but would love to make cute hats

I'm planning on making everything for baby! So far, I've made a quilted blanket, that I made way bigger than I thought, but at least baby will get to enjoy it for a very long time! (Like it will fit nicely on a toddler bed as the main quilt....) I have tons of material left for more projects, but I don't know what I'm making yet. I'm going to be selfish and make a nursing cover next!

Thank you *Kiliki* for the beautiful siggy

I sew a lot, but I don't make things for baby. I don't like spending time on something that will be outgrown quickly. I made DD a cute jacket before she was born and she wore it all of 2 times. I might make a personalized blanket or two, but that's it.
