Newborn caterpillar photo prop

I’m so in love with this costume! I found it on etsy but asked my mom to make it for me instead!

She can now make things by looking at the picture which is totally awesome!

Our baby will only be a few days old once Halloween comes so thought this caterpillar costume would be perfect and cozy for her 🙂

I can’t wait to see how hers turns out and to put our sweet baby girl in it!

Curtains

These are crocheted curtains using thread! Mom’s using them in her windows downstairs aka Dad’s Man Cave so you know they aren’t too girly!

This pattern must take awhile because she’s normally done in a flash! She’d been working on this for days, well putting it down and going back to it in between her many other projects. It was obviously worth the time though, I love the final look! It’s a fun, trendy pattern.

Crochet bear hat

Well we know this winter will be a warm, snuggly, adorable one for the babies!

Mom has made plenty of adorable has for her grandbabies.

Here is a bear hat that she just made for my brother’s soon to be son!

I think this hat is super adorable!!!!

She gets most of her yarn from Joanna fabric and a lot of patterns come from etsy or a google search.

I can’t remember where she said this pattern came from but if you’re interested leave a comment and I’ll be sure to figure it out!

Stuffed bear animal

Mom is knitting these adorable stuffed bears for each of her grandchildren.

She is using alpaca wool that she picked up from a renaissance fair in Virginia which will make for a super soft cuddly gift.

She got the pattern for this from allaboutyou.com.

I asked if it was difficult and she said the pattern had great directions.

She still wants to embroider a face and even knit a little jacket which would be super cute!

It sits about 5″ high so makes a perfect size for little ones!

Good luck if you give it a go!

Newborn diy owl sleep sack

Mom is in baby mode and making lots for little ones arrival!

She’s currently working on a newborn sleep sack which she hasn’t finished yet but the impatient daughter I am wants to share a photo now!

She is also knitting a hat to match!

The very top is ribbed followed by a row of adorable owls.

She is thinking of a buttoned bottom. The one she saw on the Internet has a closed bottom but buttons seem more practical and I agree!

I hope yours comes out as great as mom’s did!

Cupcake newborn photo prop hat

This cupcake hat makes me smile!

It super adorable and I can’t wait to have a princess to wear it!

Mom still needs to add sprinkles but i couldn’t wait to post!

She’s thinking of tiny rosebud flowers that she picked up awhile ago and doesn’t have a use for. I think it’s a perfect idea!

Again I bought this pattern from Beezy Mom’s Creations on Etsy.

The yarn was purchased from Joann fabric online using a coupon code!

Jaquard bunny

This is a cute baby stuffed animal that my little ones will absolutely love! Mom has been making and mailing things for our little one who isn’t here yet and our toddler claims it all for him as soon as it arrives! She will have to start making two of everything. 🙂

For this project Mom got the yarn on sale at Michaels.

You can find the pattern for this at http://www.bernat.com/product.php?P=1&LGC=babyjacquards

She ended up running out of yarn so used a pink and while yarn to finish the sides. She’a also thinking of embroidering a face on the bunny which would be cute but I think it’s fine without one.

Owl newborn photo prop hat

This is the first project Mom started on before we even knew if we were having a girl or boy.
As you can tell she was routing for a girl this time since we already have the perfect little boy.
I love this hat, too adorable!
This was one of the more easier patterns then what she’s been doing lately.

We can’t remember what site she found the patten on but here is a link to one that does have some…

Here is a picture of the back…

I got the pattern from Beezy Mom’s Creations on Etsy and the yarn from Joann Fabric.
Here is a picture of the front…
Mom still needs to add buttons to the front of the diaper cover but that should be quick and easy for her.
