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.

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!

Knitting needle roll organizer

Ok, so Mom bought a whole set of double pointed knitting needles from stitchberry thru Amazon but needed to organize them.

Design Sponge had a cute pattern but she had to change it a bit since she didn’t have exactly what they used.

She didn’t have 1″ twill tape so she used 1/2″ bias tape.

The drop cloth frays easily so she sewed tape all the way around.

Her needles are very large, so she made the last few pockets 3″ instead if 1 1/2.

It rolls up nice and neat and she can easily see the needles she needs.

She’s going to use some of the empty pockets for scissors and such.

This is made from her painting drop cloth which only has a tiny piece left now!

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!

You can find the owlie sleep sack and hat pattern at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/owlie-sleep-sack

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

Cakes

Mom made these cakes for our cousin Grace who is two-years old and loves them! These are cute and fun to make.

I’m not sure where Mom got her patterns from but I found a site that had good reviews… http://www.normalynn.info/freepatterns.html

These are a great gift for little ones being adorable and soft!

Heart Pillow

Here is a great Valentine gift for a loved one!

Mom found this heart pillow pattern at http://www.caron.com/projects/ss/ss_i_love_u_heart.html. She used the knitting pattern and just left the pocket off!

Super cute and comfy cozy gift!

Give it a try, and if you add the pocket… you can stick in a special Valentine card.
