Who's getting crafty or creative for their LO?


I thought this would be a good place to share ideas, pictures and web links to ideas.

I love browsing on www.pinterest.com and www.ravelry.com for ideas and knitting patterns.

I'm currently knitting my first pair of booties and have just ordered lots of wool to knit a patchwork blanket.

What is everyone else making?

I've (so far) knit a pair of booties, a hat, a blanket, and a cardi.

The blanket and cardi were finished a while ago (before my BFP) so not sure if they count.

I'm starting a pair of mitten tonight but then that's it in terms of clothes till we find out the sex of the baby.

I did find a nice organiser to go on the end of the cot, but not sure just yet. Need to find something as knitting is the one thing taking my mind of morning sickness and I have a 17 hour flight next month so I need something to do!

Hi ladies!
I like to sew and crochet mainly!
I'll be making some bandana bibs for my LO once born and a taggie (made them for my last LO and make for friends).
I've made a Cmas stocking for my LO and have the same fabric in green to make an identical one for the baby
At the moment I'm mainly crocheting but everything looks too pretty once finished I think even if in blue. Crochet is so nice for girls!
Despite that I've made a cardigan with toggles, bootie and hat set!
I've made an owl beanie and matching mitts and a plain striped beanie with matching mitts
I've just made a pair of booties that look like converse!

I've made these but they're not nearly as cute in plain or pastel colours - need to think of a good boy combo of bold colours!


I mainly browse youtube for tutorials, so much easier than following a pattern!!!
Can find them and post links if anyone is interested!

I wish I could just link to my fb album as I upload pics of stuff I make - I have lots of 'crafty' friends! My fb settings would prob block it though so I'll upload some seperate ones x

EDIT: Not sure the Cmas stocking pic will show as it's a gif...

This is my next project

Babee I love the nappies!! You're so clever!!!

Here is the headband pattern for you:

http://momof5daughters.blogspot.co.u...ddler.html?m=1

I read somewhere that size wise:

NB= 12"
0-6= 14"

So I did this one 12.5" ish as that's where the row stopped.

And this is the daisy pattern. Although there are so many flowers out there to crochet I think I'll do different for each headband:

Post a pic when you're done. Xxxx

Thank you Hunnie ... Im very very new at crochet new as in, I've only learned to do it the other night haha, and I managed to make a couple of flowers lol.. So it may take a while for me to do this lol but will deffo have a go tonight



Here's my little crochet flower, I'm planning of sewing this ontop a long sleeved vest top, as Layla is due in April, so it won't be freezing, but im guessing it's not going to be warm lol.. Then summer put some on short sleeved vests

Wow! That's great for having only just learnt.

If you can do that then you'll be fine with the headband. It's easy peasy. Xx
