I think this is part of my nesting phase, but I have felt compelled to create a list of the projects I want to complete for my baby’s arrival! It’s definitely not my ordinary kind of post, though we all know I have a thing for making lists. haha I’ll include a few pics of my current projects, as well as some progress pics!
My Current List of Craft Endeavors
- A fluffy pink tutu. Because, I mean, she’s a girl! The pattern I plan to use if from the knitting book “What to Knit When You’re Expecting.” I’m thinking of using light pink yarn by Red Heart called Kiss.
- Soft, handmade burp cloth, made from the same book. (pictured below…still need to crochet a lace/trim border)
- A Matching onesie and tee for my girls. I bought a pink onesie and tee at Hobby Lobby and want to cross stitch and embroider on them!
- A felted bunny crib mobile. If anyone wants a tutorial for this, lemme know. (one of five bunnies, pictured below)
- An oversized chunky knit blanket. But like, way oversized and way chunky. I’d like to purchase through Ohhio but we will see!
- Booties. Since babies hate shoes (at least mine do), but I’ll want something to put on over her little socks…since those are always falling off! I don’t have a pattern or yarn picked out…but I’m hoping inspiration hits me before winter does! (maybe using the yarn pictured below?)
- A christmas stocking for baby. I have knit one for every member of my little family, and now it’s this baby girl’s turn!
- Baby bundling and matching hat. This one is actually finished, but I wanted to put it on my list because it was my first official baby project. I made the set with Knit Picks yarn called “Billow.” The bundting is from the same book, “What to Knit When You’re Expecting” and the project is called: . I made the hat pattern up myself…it’s just your average ribbed baby hat with an enormous pom-pom. (bundling collection pictured below)
Thanks for reading about all my aspirations! I have found craft endeavors to be therapeutic, as well as constructive during this busy and emotional nesting phase. It’s nice to keep my mind and hands busy, but it’s even nicer to see finished items that are meant just for my baby. It really makes her arrival feel real and fast-coming. I can’t wait to hold her in my arms! And wrap her in my bundting. haha Thanks for stopping by!
