Nursing Apron #1

I looked up a pattern online and then made my own, but I would say this was very poor.  The only good thing is that the color is pretty discreet.   Stay tuned for a post when I make a new (cute) nursing apron and I'll tell you the right way to make it.

Baby Boy Bibs

My favorite two were He Did It! -> and <- He Did It! for a set of twin boys, but I forgot to snap a picture before giving them away.  Here are other bibs that I have made.  I sort of made up the pattern myself.  I used a store-bought bib for a rough idea, as the first bib I made (a couple of years ago) was too big for an adult.  Sometimes we don't have a feel for how small kids really are.

Thank you Claire for the beautiful handmade and tied blankets and crocheted booties.  They are fantastic!

Crocheted Blankets

The first picture is a blanket crocheted by my sister-in-law Michelle.  The picture doesn't do it justice because it really shines.  And it's really warm.  And it's quite a bit bigger than the second blanket.  The edging is fantastic so I had to take a close-up picture of that.  I'm hoping this turns into one of those blankets that the baby can drag around until he's too old for it ;)

The second picture is the blanket I crocheted for her youngest boy when he was born almost 5 years ago.  It's in excellent condition.  I wish I'd used shinier softer yarn for all the work that goes into making these.

I have learned how absolutely essential this baby item is.  I always wanted to make one just like the one my sister-in-law Kristy made for me!  Actually, I hadn't thought of using something so cuddly and soft for the lining.

Big Booties, Little Booties.

This gift I received took both  a lot of ambition and a lot of talent.  Sewing booties is no easy task, although there is a good deal of easing the fabric through.  The first two pieces of art are by Kristy and the simple kimono bootie is by me.
