45+ handmade baby projectsSo I feel a little funny putting this post together. Even though we’re pretty open about wanting to adopt (aka- I won’t shut about it- haha!), I feel weird telling you about the amount of time I spend searching the internet for baby related tutorials when I don’t have a baby. Or the promise of a baby.

Regardless, y’all, I haven’t done baby stage in awhile and there are SO many cute things to make! Seriously.

Since some of you actually have babies in your tummies or in your houses to make things for (not just in your dreams- haha), I thought I’d put all of my internet searching to good use and pass along my finds.

  1. None of my friends seem to be having babies right now. Come on people! I need some baby showers to make these things for!!

    1. Haha, right? I’m not having any babies, but if we get to adopt one, I’ll let you know and you can add me to your list. 😉

  2. You can feel free to send baby things this way, Jessica 😉 Baby #1 coming March 6! I wish I were a seamstress like my sister or mama (who sewed for all eight of us!), however neither of my two sewing machines are getting much use right now!

    1. Ruth, March 6 is SO SOON! Also, I totally didn’t start sewing until after I had Burke. So don’t put those sewing machines too far away. 😉
