I love, love, love trying out new crafts. I taught myself to crochet by watching Youtube videos, I scrapbook, I have an art journal, I write stories, sometimes I paint… The idea of creating something with my own hands is very satisfying. I also love babies! That’s why I was super excited to find this compilation by Kristina Manscill at Mothers Niche- it’s the ultimate list of baby crafts and tutorials- one for each week of pregnancy. Alternatively, these also make great gifts for showers- almost all of them are extremely practical and desperately needed. The best part is, most of them don’t require many skills, except for basic sewing. Check it out! Here are some of my favorites:
If you only do one “baby project” I would totally advise burp cloths! We go through these like CRAZY at our house!
Breast Feeding Scarf or Nursing Cover
I currently have nursing covers, but my heart is starting to sway towards the nursing SCARF! How cute that you can wear it and no one would even know it’s for nursing?!
DIY Diaper Rash Cream
Coconut oil is awesome for rashes!
crochet beard or if you have a girl, DIY bows and flower clips
If only I knew how to crochet! This thing is ridiculously cute!
To be honest, I’d make that beard hat even if I did have a girl! It’s too stinking cute! The DIY flower clips are also adorable.
