Making items for your baby


Is/has anyone else made anything for their baby?

I am wanting to make some taggie blankets and burp cloths.

I would love to make some swaddle pods but am not sure if my skills are up to that just yet!

I am very slowly knitting a blanket for Toby.
At this pace, it should be a lovely graduation/off-to-college gift.

I've knitted one pair of bootees and a hat, have started a blanket but I got bored too quickly

Started making stuff for the nursery now, I've knitted some bunting and a knitted ring which will be hung on the wall with an owl inside it

I still have lots of things to make, some more bunting, some birds made out of material for a twig mobile and various other smaller bits.

Slightly OT, but I just made a sailor outfit for my furbaby LOL

How do you make a swaddle pod?

I made a taggy for my LO:



And also a pram blanket:



And a few other things too. I'm in the middle of making her some soft play blocks, which have the letters of her name stitched onto, and I hope that I can encourage her to learn to spell her name when she's young. On the opposite side of the letters, I might also stitch numbers, so she can learn to count to 5

Well tonight I was half way through a taggy blanket and my sewing machine decided to stop working (needle just won't budge and bobbin won't come out) - my hormones then went into overdrive so have packed it all away

Found the fabric squares on Ebay, stitched them together into a patchwork, then used that to sew to the backing fabric (place them facing inwards, so that the wrong side of the fabric is showing to you. Before sewing the pieces together, fold and pin the ribbons where you want them along the edges, and when you sew the edges of the blanket the ribbons will be sewn too.

I had to do all mine by hand. It's longer, but you can watch TV at the same time

I have such a wonderful mummies. So far she has made a change bag which I love, some bibs and burp cloths and is knitting some little cardies.

She has also had me looking on websites at clothes patterns and telling her which ones we like.

My little Bean is going to be so spoilt by grandma
