Helped Wanted: Baby Craft Ideas!

So... I'm not a baby person. I think babies are cute and all, I just don't wanna own one. So baby crafts = not my thang. Now that my sister has officially announced her pregnancy (you know, on Facebook), I can put it out there that I need suggestions for cute baby-themed gifts that I can make! Got babies? Great! I need your advice! My sister is due in April. I want to make something cool for the nursery (ideally that is cute and functional!) and I want to make something cute for the baby. We don't know the baby's sex yet, so preferably something gender neutral, at least for now.

If you have a project on your blog or know one from another blog that you think is super cute, please add it to this linky! It doesn't have to be a tutorial, just something to give me ideas! Or leave a comment below with your ideas.


  1. Moira, check out this other crafty blog for ideas. Someone is offering an e-course, but I think just looking at this post will give you some ideas.


    Also, if you own the original Stitch 'n Bitch books, there are some projects for babies in there.

  3. moira,

    how about making a calendar of the new year with spaces to put baby photos in? or photos of you & your sister as babies? or altering a baby board book making your own to be read to the baby? you could use photos to change story or words, or add a baby mirror? one with inspiring quotes or geez i don't know. the link i'm sharing isn't necessarily a baby blog, but she & her husband are trying to adopt. she has lots of baby stuff inspired decorating & crafty type things.


  4. I'm with you, I don't have a baby and thus don't have the best ideas for babies. My friend Jenilyn over at http://gritsandgiggles.blogspot.com however does and has some really cute stuff!

  5. I can totally see you making a mobile. Y'know i have a weakness for stuffed animals, but I guess they're not super-functional.
